Real Estate Game

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] Berries!

This is my favorite forum for everything, not just names. I have an idea for a game that I think would be fun for those interested in the real estate world and finding the “perfect house” for buyers. So how it works is each person gives an example of a buyer or family and their specific criteria & budget. Location can be a specific city in the world or just a description of the buyer’s activities (like surfing would fit with [name_u]California[/name_u], South [name_f]Africa[/name_f], Australia, etc). Then the next person finds the house perfect for them on any photo real estate site.

So to start:
Buyer- [name_u]Kelly[/name_u] and [name_m]Brad[/name_m] [name_m]Jones[/name_m]
3 kids, school aged & infant
[name_u]Kelly[/name_u] is a doctor.
[name_m]Brad[/name_m] works from home.
Criteria:

  • 4 bedrooms
  • 2 bathrooms
  • backyard
  • good school district
  • a “cool” city

Budget: $715,000 (abt £630,000)
