Jen and I love this place that we found. We tried not to let on to the real estate agent, because we figure that the only chance we have is if we can bluff them in to selling it at a price that we can afford.

This place has a lot of problems, there are minor things and major things. For instance the plantation shutters need to be worked on. That is not anything though. I can fix that in about half an hour. The biggest thing is that I am going to have to replace the sub flooring in the bathroom. Read the rest of this entry
