The One That Got Away
So that house that I looked at last weekend? It’s already off the market. Looks like someone got the deal of the century.
That house was in excellent shape. And remember that picture of the hardwood floors that I didn’t know where they came from? The sellers ripped up the carpet and that beautiful flooring was throughout the house!
All the rooms were a good size, the basement showed no signs of water damage or leaking and there was a great spot in the basement to put in an additional full bath. The backyard was kinda small, but we could have put a pool in back there (for the hubby). The sellers had a carport and there was probably room to add another so both our cars could be under cover. (Gah! I hate cleaning snow off my car in the winter.)
The street was SO quite and as momma and I left we went out a different way than we came in and the neighborhood behind the house? Wowsers. Super nice. With that house on the market for 125k and a few upgrades; extra bath, finish the basement, update the kitchen & current bath it would easily resell for at LEAST 175k, if not more. Even in this market.
But alas, we are not QUITE ready to make a purchase. I just know that when we are the PERFECT house will be out there, waiting for us.
On another note, with the weather being so BEASTLY, momma and I passed on house hunting this week and I slept until 3 on Sunday. What a life!
What about you? Any houses you’ve seen that were a steal? Or maybe you were lazy like me this weekend? Whatever your story, I’d love to hear it!
