Found the right house --I think

January 17th, 2007 at 09:09 am

So yeaterday I do my whole routine & about 10:00 I always check mls system to see if any new homes were listed.The market here stinks its a buyers market but people are not listing so now inventory is getting low. So I cant get in touch with my realtor & I cant get anyone in his office to show me the property for him.I realized this house was a very unsual value and would not last long so I call the listing realtor & go see it.I hated it because my realtor is usually very good.But this house was a golden goose.Now people from high priced areas probably wont believe this but-- the house has 5600 sq ft.
built 4years ago, with 10 acres & a big heated & cooled workshop & a carpot & koi pond & a spring on property for 195,000. Yeap I swear.Not only that but alot of extra nice features, hardwood floors, marble entry ways, custom cabinets.They are being foreclosed upon so the house must sell in 2 weeks. I doubt we will beat an investor to it but Im going to try.Wish me luck. If its meant to be my blessing I will get it. If not someone else will be blessed.Just had to blog about it because its on my mind.

    Wow, you can't even buy 10 acres for that price around here. what state are you in?

    as a fellow house hunter i am jealous of the house you have found. something like what you described in CA would be at least 10 times that amount!

    That would buy you a little starter home on a little lot where I live.
    Make sure you are willing to pay heating and cooling costs in a house that large though. I have approximately that amount of space, and my current natural gas/electric bill $529.00. That is for one month. I keep the thermostat at 68 for 12 hours of each day, and at 60 degrees for the other 12 hours. We installed energy efficient windows last year, as well as Tyvek house wrap, and new siding. It has been extremely cold in Northern Colorado, but the bills are high even in milder weather.

    Im in Alabama.I asked about the heating & air.They said in the summer The whole house stayed cool & the electric was 169.00 said they had all there utility bills.They really have no reason to lie, because the house is going to sell.My husband was impressed with there insulation.He also said they used engineered beams.Which I dont really understand thats his area.
    I dont know how you guys in Californa live.When I see the house prices on tv I am in disbelief.
