We finally started looking at an area a little newer and about 5 miles north of our targeted area. We found a home within our budget and one that I think I could work with. My main concern was LOCATION - LOCATION - LOCATION. You know what they say. You can change a lot about a house, but you can't change the location. So that was my biggest concern. I was trying to find a home I could afford in an UPSCALE area and this one is.
This is the home we made an offer on. Good bones, built in 2002 - 1982sf. 3 bdrm & loft - 2.5 bathrooms and a good price, plus a really GREAT location. This home is one of the smaller homes in the area.
Living - Dining room as seen from the front door. You can see the sliding door through the opening to the family room and then out to the backyard.
master bath - you can't get more builder basic than this
The main appeal of this house is the fact that it is affordable, in a great location with much more expensive homes and a blank slate. Really and truly builder basic so I don't have to work around a lot of upgrades that I really don't like. This is not what I would call my dream home, but one I think I can turn into a very comfortable place for us. It will be nice to be closer to family and to be able to enjoy all those spur of the moment get-togethers. This home puts us about 5 miles north or south from family, so it's a great location.
Now we go on to listing our home and going through the inspection process of this home. So we will see, still not a done deal, but at least the process is started.
