Decorative or not?


@creeper, that's true, I guess it is just getting your foot in the door that is the real struggle. I don't think about the sellers perspective I guess because I'm so tired of moving, when I finally get out of the rent game you'll have to burn the house down to get me out. But yea, your profit margins are drastically higher than ours. I don't expect to make even $60-80k when I sell..and thanks for confirming I'm not the only one that doesn't speak Gollum. = )

@yummy, lol! I understand, I grew up in LA - moving here was a huge culture shock. Inner Dallas & Ft Worth both are just now starting to vamp up their downtown areas to be the "hip urban" areas modeled after NY & the like. Its starting to catch on, condos, townhomes & apt lofts in those areas are springing up everywhere. If I didn't have a child I'd probably be there myself. But the suburbs here have most everything the bigger cities do except nightlife appeal. Only bad aspect is the commute to/from work - 45 min each way, bleh. But get that Howdy up & start saying "y'all ain't" and when you buy my block, please put in a community pool & dog park, that's all I'm asking! Buy a knock down for 600k??? I think I'm going to faint.

tarraha, I am practising my Howdy, and y'all.....

Community pool, done. Dog park, done.

tarraha, your original post has really taken a turn, sorry about that. Did you purchase the home?

Yay, Ol' Yeller will be so happy...

That's quite alright on the subject change, still learned something new and thats always welcome! I decided not to go with that house I originally posted about, because that night I found a listing that came up for a home that was bigger, newer build, same schools, and listed cheaper than the first. It also doesn't require any reno, love the layout, just needs upgrades. I put an offer in yesterday and hope to get good news back soon. Its nerve wracking waiting around for the answer!! Especially because this is the 3rd house I've put an offer on now, over the last 6 months, and keep getting passed up. Something will have to give soon though, as I'm now at the end of my lease and really don't want to sign another...keep me in your prayers please!!
