Back to the house. We first found it a few weeks ago and thought we should check it out. We didn't and it went under contract to some other buyer. Tom was a little bummed. And come to find out, it is just down the street from my cousin. I sent him (cousin) the link to the house and said that it wasn't available anymore. Then he wrote back and said he just saw a new sign in the yard so he got the number for me. I called and apparently the current buyer couldn't get enough financing for it so it looked like it was going to fall through. The Realtor gave me the key code and we went to see it. It needs work, but nothing that isn't possible. Someone smoked in it so it will all be painted and the carpet cleaned or replaced. The fact that it needs to be painted is perfect because I would only buy it if I could paint it. Hello brown.
I don't like brown inside houses. I would paint all of the trim, wainscoting, and plantation shutters white and the rest of the walls either barely not white to the cream side or gray side.
Anyway, we made them an offer and they accepted it verbally -- but the current buyers hadn't backed out. The Realtor told me he thought they would back out to get their earnest money back. They ended up not doing that so now we have 2 weeks to wait and see if buyers numero uno are going to get it or if we are.
That's where we're at. It would be really nice to put some roots down for our kids. I'm not gonna lie.
