House Hunting

I have always had incredible housing karma. No matter where I've lived, I've always found unique and cozy places to call home, whether a craftsman cottage near the beach or a turn of the century mansion on a hill, home has always been my refuge.

Now that I'm actually looking for a home to buy, well, it's a challenge. The new houses are cookie cutter look-a-likes, which don't appeal to my aesthetic sensibilities, and yet you know that everything is going to work--for at least the first 5 years. The older homes are lots of work.

How to decide? Hopefully, I'll just know 'home' when I see it.
