MargieMay is driving safely and mindfully.
Last night we toured another house (tour #4). It went on the market Monday and the sellers are going to review offers tonight. Because of the tight deadline we had to go view it last night after work.
Hubby and I were actually really excited about it. The 3 bed/2.5 bath 1650 sq. ft. townhouse is located in our number one choice neighborhood/city. Coastal with easy freeway access AND just a block from our best friends’ home! Great schools . . . a park just a block away!
But sometimes it’s not good enough to have the “location.” The home was previously owned by an elderly person who actually passed away of natural causes there. That fact didn’t bother me. What did bother me was that the place hadn’t been updated since the 1980s. It needed major TLC from the floors to the windows to the kitchen counters/appliances. And the lighting! Oh man, major issues with the awful lighting fixtures through out.
Unfortunately we decided to walk away from the deal. Certainly if we had an extra $50K it would have been wonderful but neither of us were willing to do the work required to get it up to our standards.
