Ben Affleck Spotted House Hunting in Los Angeles Alongside Girlfriend Lindsay Shookus

"Ben is looking to buy a family friendly house," a real estate source tells PEOPLE

Ben Affleck is on the hunt for a new house, and he’s getting a little help from his girlfriend Lindsay Shookus.

The duo were spotted touring homes on the west side of Los Angeles on Tuesday. Shookus wore ripped black jeans and a sheer top, while Affleck opted for a black T-shirt and maroon pants.

“Ben is looking to buy a family friendly house,” a real estate source tells PEOPLE. “Lindsay shared her opinions, but it was clear that they are not buying a house together.”

One home they toured in Santa Monica runs $18.5 million and has 8 bedrooms, 10 baths, 9,422 square feet, 1,000 bottle wine cellar, a movie theater and a gym, according to its listing.

Another home they toured in the Pacific Palisades is listed for $11.9 million and has 5 bedrooms, 6 baths and a 6-car showroom garage.

Affleck, 45, and Shookus, 37, a producer for Saturday Night Live, went public with their relationship in July.

The Justice League star had been living in a rental since he moved out of the family estate he used to share with his ex-wife Jennifer Garner and their kids, Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8, and Samuel, 5. Affleck was living in the guesthouse during their separation, and moved out a month after they filed for divorce in May.

Another source says that Affleck never loved his rental and always planned on buying a house.

All the houses they toured are fairly close to Garner’s family home, which a source previously told PEOPLE was important for Affleck, who wants to be nearby his kids.
