Third Time's a Charm?

Okay, wow. House #2 turned out to be falling down, quite literally. And we just weren't sure it could be salvaged, for any price...so we walked away. It was totally heartbreaking. I wish we didn't have to spend $300 on a professional inspection, but that was $300 well spent considering we could have had tens of thousands of dollars in repairs to even make the house livable. But we moved on to greener pastures...

House #3! We have an accepted offer, and we had our inspection yesterday. The report wasn't super great, but for the right price we should be able to see a return on our investment. We're following the classic real estate rule of purchasing the worst house in a good neighborhood. And realistically, this neighborhood is more upscale than the previous two houses (which were on the same street).

Check out some interior shots in all of their old person glory (and it smells like it looks like it smells):

We've got a looong to-do list and certainly have our work cut out for us, but at least it will be our very own!
