In search of a perfect house
No it is not me who is searching for the perfect house but it is I am writing about. There is a channel in the U.S. called HGTV® on which one of my favorite shows are shown. It is called House hunters and its companion house hunters international. Although I am not that fond of house hunters since it basically tells of some couple or buyers looking for a home in the U.S and the various houses that are shown and ultimately to decide it in half an hour which house they choose. It is just a truncated process of the whole buying thing. But I am very much interested in the international version where I get to see people go to new places and try to either buy but mostly to rent their place of residence. You get to fascinating houses in places where you would least expect it and the scenery and other things that go with it. But one thing I have noticed is that if there is a couple, they always disagree on what sort of house they want to buy or rent. There will always be something that either one or both the parties would not like and they have this issue with finding the perfect house with nice access to the beach, big kitchen and updated bathrooms and sometimes a big backyard but when it comes to paying for it, they want to stay within a budget. Then it becomes hard for the real estate agent to combine the wishes of both the parties since there is no such thing as a perfect house.
