I am dying of lust

I’m in love. I found my complete and absolute dream house and I MUST HAVE IT. I told Jeff this and he smiled and said “Ok, call them up and offer them $98 dollars cash.” Phooey. If it can just stay on the market just for a few more months, maybe if I’m persistent…. I seriously would stay there until I was old and decrepit.

Our computer’s motherboard is all fried. Therefore, I have no pictures for you today… well, other than the one from the internet of this AMAZING house. I have some good ones too- my friend

 (aka Marya) is staying with us for the week from New Jersey. We grew up together. I love still being close with her. So, next time I post (hopefully) all will be fixed and I can show you what we’ve been up to.

Here is that beauty- on over an acre close-ish (biking distance) to town, WRAP AROUND PORCH, 2 fireplaces, oh me oh my I want I want!

Anyone wanna lend me 140,000 dollars?

    you guys should totally get that house!!! It has GJV (Grace, Jeff, Vera) writted ALL OVER it! I sooo hope it doesnt sell until you are ready to buy! You might be surprised at what the house payment is on $140,000. It’s less than what you might think.

      I KNOW!!! Yeah, I think we could handle the payments, we live really frugally anyway. We just have to secure a job for Jeff pronto before we do that. I hope he can get one with you guys!!

    I have always wanted a wrap around porch, that and a window seat. What a wonderful looking house!

    I’ve been talking a lil bit here and there with a real estate agent and here’s something that’s been brought up that might be an idea you’d like to try;
    With the current colapsed state of the housing market, a lot of homeowners already bought their new homes and are having trouble selling their original ones, leaving them with 2 mortgage payments.
    You can go to the owner and offer them a “rent to buy” option. Many might take it, just to get the financial burden lifted for a bit. That way, you can live there paying rent, and part of that goes towards the downpayment of the house (at least that was my understanding of how ‘rent to buy’ works).

    Where is this house? It’s far too big for you. Land-lubber.

      Yeah, that’s what my parents did first. It’s sort of just a waiting game right now… We’ll see!

    dude, that looks like a nice house for 140,000! how big is the house?

      It pretty big actually. I forget the actual square footage, but it’s all we’d ever need. Michigan is suffering, lots of people just trying to get rid of their houses. Now is the time to buy if we’re gonna, but it’s gotta be something we don’t want to sell anytime soon to make it worth it.

    That is a perfect house! You could take Vera to the water park down the street. šŸ™‚

    Depending on what the current owners put into it, they might come down on the price a bit since they bought it in ’97 for much less. If you ever need help estimating costs or have any questions at all, I’d love to talk to you. Buying your first house should be such a great experience.
