Day in the Bywater

I checked out the house I am looking at a little more intently today. This is the third time I looked at it, but this time I took some pictures (which I will post shortly). Re-examining the pictures is a little daunting, especially when you try to take pictures of everything you think is wrong with your subject. When I go back through all of the photos it really makes my idea of what I should offer drop dramatically. I am no Bob Villa when it comes to home improvement, but I feel a little concerned with the cost it will take to really get this place up to snuff. I really need to find out the exact square footage of the place as I have gotten two entirely different numbers from the agent. The agent is a little funny, its not that I don't trust him, its just that he is not the most reliable or "detail-oriented" person around, so I kind of need to really go my own way. I am going to find a lawyer next week to help me write up the offer contract and put a serious number in writing. We shall see...

That sounds awesome. I hope to see pix soon. try to find floor plans on that house through the city if you can like we talked about. Hire a contractor before you get going go so you can get an estimate on how much money you need for the house to get it going. Good luck
