Made an offer on a house in Redmond!!!! It is older built in 1979, 2 bdrms, 2 baths, altho one is sort of funky and a part of the utility room, single car garage. It has character . But i t is below 80,000 and in fairly good, clean shape! Does not smell!! Vinyl siding. Yard needs alot of work as has not been cared for in some time The grass is all pounded down and dead in places. But with the savings in the monthly payment by not going over 100,000 i will have extra money to help towards fixing it up. Will have to see if they accept the offer and things go as we all hope :)
You would NOT believe some of the houses out there!! people just trashed them or did not care for them, even some fairly new ones, like they had no pride in ownership or of where they lived. New homes in my price range were very small with small lots. This one is on a curving corner, has sidewalks in, has extra parking on the side/back. Fenced back yard with a shed. room for a greenhouse.
I am very calm about the whole thing, anxious on the acceptance by the seller of the offer. Want to get started in fixing it up
Don't know what this will do to travel plans, but hope that i will be able to do both :) i want it all!!! HA!
Take Care All & God Bless
