House #2 was on 3 acres and was built in the 80's. It was remodeled inside and was very pretty. There was a pool and a newly built 4 car garage and guest house. The problem was that it was TOO nice. I couldn't see my dogs living there. There was no easy access from the guest house to outside, maybe if I put a dog door in to the garage and then built a block walled yard next to the garage. It was a great house and a great price, $280k short sale, but it just didn't fit our needs.
We made it home after noon and we were all hot and tired. Looking at houses in this heat is difficult. At least my new realtor was brave enough to go in all of the scary and dirty places. My last realtor would have waited in her car. My mom decided that it would be perfect if she could just buy the house next door to my current house. That would be great but it isn't for sale. Oh well, we will keep looking.
