House – Too Good To Be True?


As you know, I’ve been itching to move since we moved into our current house 🙂  First of all, I love moving, but secondly, I detest living in a side-by-side.  My neighbor is wonderful, but it just doesn’t feel like a home when you’re forced to live on the same lot as someone else.

Today I came across a 5 bedroom corner lot house being sold privately here in town.  It’s a 1 1/2 story (my favorite) with a finished basement, good sized yard, mature trees and a double detached garage.  If we don’t look at it when it sounds so perfect, I’ll always be wondering if we let a great thing slip through our fingers.  So Mike agreed that we should take a look at it.  It’s actually just down the street from where we live now.  It’s had its share of owners, but the current owners have renovated it.  Makes me a bit nervous, but it’s still worth a look.  If we like it, we’ll consult our realtor to get the house history.


Yes, the house was too good to be true.  It’s small, which is obvious, but it’s really old as well, and although the current owners did a great job on the renos, the age can’t help but show itself.  So, we’ll keep looking.  We’ll find our house one day.

  1. I know where that house is!! Just down the road from me!! Yeah, you’ll still be close!!
    The only thing with that property is that it is on the corner of a major highway. Might be wise to put up a fence (or see if there is one). You know how little boys like to go exploring 🙂

    • Yep 😀 There’s a tall wooden fence on 2 sides for sure, so we’d for sure put up the rest 🙂 I’m off to see it shortly. I’ll let you know how it goes 🙂 Keeping my expectations low 😀
