House hunt – Day 1

Posted in Uncategorized by beebe4 on August 21, 2005

So we went out for two hours driving around with Mandy, Mom and Don and then stopped to have lunch. After which we met our realtor, Jenn, and started going through 16 houses that we had picked out from going through houses online. Not such much luck, turns out people want a lot of money for some really ugly houses.

For example:
This house here
had a freaking 10 foot 2×4 holding up the second floor ceilng and a hugh hole in the ceiling plaster on the 1st floor… and they still wanted nearing $400,000 for it… crazy crap.

So needless to say, day 1 didn’t go so well. We are hoping to have more luck on day 2 on the other side of the river. Will keep you updated.

    Looks like an adorable house….at least in that picture.

    Well, be glad you are not down here in SoFla, 10foot 2x4s are commonplace and they normally come at about a million bucks a pop 🙂
