I really don't understand why people have an issue, ok I do, they want the world on a stick for a bargain price.

The 'perfect' house doesn't exist, if you want 11 rooms, an indoor heated pool, lake views, 4 garage spaces etc etc all for 200k then your going to be looking a very long time.

We looked on homegate, a lot, the house appeared we went to look at it, made an offer and bought it (there is a thread about it on here already)

sure we had to compromise, my 'perfect' house had new central heating and a garage, but what can you do, all the houses like that where out of my budget.
Yep - sums it up. The list of "wants" has to be balanced with the "what can be afforded" - rarely do the 2 meet happily.
