Friday, I put an increase bid for the house previously discussed in Detroit.....975 square feet with no basement, one car garage, and lots of land. On the way home from my Spinal Tap, my best friend stopped by a house; which made me very mad because I wanted to get home and lay down because the pain was so great. So I decided to go along and not cause an argument later. I went around and went in some to look at this Huge house. It was priced much lower than the house I put a bid in already. It had a lot of work needed inside but the square footage is 1,402 and has a full finished basement, 2 car garage, and a beautiful large fenced yard with man made small ponds and rock garden. I said let's go and went home.
The next day I woke up and knew that this house is where I belong. We went there yesterday late afternoon and met some of the neighbors and they told me when I was leaving that they hoped I would be their new neighbor and bring that beautiful house back to its former glory. My best friend had took a large house and put some work in it and then rented it out. He finally said to me that he wanted to see it again tomorrow.....but was thinking this might be a much better investment of money and labor. The house was already worth over 3 times the other house.
Time will tell....but I feel as though I belong there!
