House hunting in Seoul

House hunting in another country is about one of the most interesting things you can do. We heard of a realtor who works with lots of military families and asked her to show us some houses near to post. She showed us two homes that were within walking distance of the airfield, which would have been super conveniant for Josh, but they really weren't what we were looking for. For one, they were both very small and didn't have any parking available. One only had one bathroom and not much storage space at all. The landlords were going to provide furniture, but all that they had seemed pretty old and icky. Let's just say we were less than impressed.
When we walked into the next house we KNEW it was the one without even having to talk to each other. We absolutely LOVE the home that we picked. It's about 2000 square feet, is brand new and has a wonderful balcony that runs the entire length of the house. The balcony has planter boxes too, so I'm excited to start planting flowers and maybe a small veggie garden when the weather is better. The master bedoom is HUGE and we have lots of extra room for visitors (hint, hint). The only things that our house is missing is an oven and a dishwasher. This is pretty normal for a Korean home though.
