A House!!!

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


  1. Happy, Happy, Happy for you dear Loree!!

  2. Congratulations on finding the one that makes you happy! I'll be hoping your offer is accepted and all goes smoothly.

  3. There's no reason you can't have it all. Way to go, Loree!

  4. Cute house - I like the yellow siding. Sounds like you'll have plenty of room, and some fun fixing it up and re-doing the yards. I hope it goes through for you.

    Sooner or later I'll want another house, too. A little one outside of California, that I can afford in retirement, and where I can park my RV on the side of the house for continued travels when I want.

    I hope you will continue traveling from time to time. That would be the best of both worlds.

  5. Congrats on finding the house! I hope it all goes well for you. :)

  6. Hope it works out! So many folks are losing their homes, I guess they just do not care any more.

    Most of us want it all if we can get it :)

  7. So excited for you. Will keep my fingers crossed!

  8. Excited for you. I love yellow!

  9. I'm with you in wanting it ALL. Hope it all works out and quickly so you can get started on all your plans.
