I didn’t get the house.
I fell in love with it though. The inside was fab and the location was even better. Then, my dad who is a contractor went to check it out and pooped on the whole thing! Seriously though, he’s been renovating homes for 40+ years and he knows what’s up. The 100 year old foundation was crumbling and would’ve been a massive expense 5 years down the road. Thank god for my dad. He’s going to save me so much money on home inspections.
He and I went with my agent to look at 2 more houses this past Sunday and I put in another offer… a low one because of all the work that needs to be done to the place – manageble dad-approved work though. The seller won’t budge on the asking price and didn’t even counter offer. So, I’ve walked away from that as well.
At this moment, I’ve exhausted my options and there’s nothing for sale in my prefered areas that I’m interested in so, I’ll have to wait and scour the listings every day.
This is going to be a massive pain in the ass process… and what else is new?
