Enjoy! BTW, what is the meaning of the all-caps NORMALS?

Good luck with your house hunting. Exciting and I am sure exhausting. Can’t wait to see what you decide.
All the best!
Carolina

I watched Beachfront Bargain Hunt last night and it was from Merritt Island, looked like a kind of cool place based on the 5 minutes they showed us on the show :lol:
It amazes me that so many of these shows, show everyone living on top of one another at the beach like city living, but I guess that's the 'bargain' part.

Day 1 at the villages,
Checked in, were assigned a beautiful 3 bedroom 2 bath home for the week, had lunch, a little grocery shopping. Spent the afternoon-evening with Neil & JoAnn they took us on a tour of the villages, visited at their beautiful home, more touring then a nice meal at Arnold Palmers.

Day 2
Real estate agent will go over particulars of owning at the villages and what’s for sale.



If you have watched house hunters seems like everyone on the show has a budget of $500,000 - $1.5 for getaway homes, our budget is much less hence the comment about normals.

I have always been amazed on these shows......"She's 25 and knits wall coverings out of spider webs, He's 27 and makes sculptures out of rubber bands.....our budget is 1.5 million"
Who are these strange people? I totally get the "normals"!

Yesterday’s house hunting was educational and fun. We spent an enjoyable evening, learning, laughing & chatting with JoAnn & Neil ... what a great couple, so proud to call them our friends.
Today promises to be another fun day we all are heading to meet up with Mike and Doreen.
