I have had a crazy week starting off with a house for sale catching my eye in the local paper. Now I'm not in the market for a new house but I drove past anyway. As it was vacant I had a snoop around and peered through the windows ~ I was very, very excited by what I saw. Raced home, grabbed hubby and dragged him along. Mr Conservative also fell in love with it. This is our dream house - white cottage by the sea within walking distance of the beach and views to die for. Spent the next day with building inspectors, lawyers, real estate agents and mortgage brokers. This was Wednesday and the Auction is today. On Thursday I organised an inspection. We were so disappointed at how run done it was on the inside and how much work was needed - but it has amazing potential. Looks a lot better in the photos than in real life. We lost our enthusiasm, but then both woke up the next day still dead keen to make it our own - we both have such a clear vision on how amazing we can make it. The auction is today and I've heard there is a stack of interested parties but I have my cheque book at the ready and we'll be bidding.
So wish me luck!
If we're not successful I know there will others out there
but this one is a beauty!
I'll let you know tomorrow.
