To buy or not to buy.
After the sale and then the not sale of our trailer Jim and I took a winter break from house hunting. But with the spring upon us and a $6500 take break speaking we thought that we might want to go and check out some houses and see if we can find one and move in before Mylee comes. Living in a small town there are houses for sale just not as many as a big town. Then if you take out the house's on by the trains or on busy streets we had 4 houses left to look at. So we thought. We had big hopes for a house on Clearview Dr. Boy were we wrong about it. It was not even show-able. But our agent took us to see this house. It is a little above what we were wanting to look at but she thought that we might like it and with the size and being a foreclosure we might be able to low, low ball it and get a great house worth a pretty penny for a better than good price. So now we are sitting here with our pro's and con's list trying to decide what to do next. Let me tell you a little about this house. It was built in 1980. It is 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, front room, living room, and basement family room. It has 4512 sq feet. On our Pros. Lots of storage, large Master bedroom with walk in closet, Large kitchen and wonderful washroom, craft room and large storage room with shelving. not too big of a yard to worry about watering but a garden lot and room for the pool. Park with basketball hoop across the street. Central vacuum and lots of parking. Cons. Layout. Only 2 bedrooms on main floor, extra kitchen in the basement plus it has 4 fireplaces one of which is in a bedroom for the kids. Not in our prime neighborhood. Over all it is a nice brick house with lots to offer. In great shape and does not have any pet stink or waste. What do you think. Here is a link to it. http://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/510-Hutton-Circle_Green-River_WY_82935_1113596852#
