*updated*Totally OT but oh so great!

So we started the process to buy a house. We found a house in Nov and looked at it, but unfortunately my credit score was not good enough at the time. So we spent the last few months getting stuff paid off, etc and I got a call from my loan officer on tuesday and we got my score up 80 points!!!! we were only shooting for like 25-30 points. And to top it off I was searching the internet today and found a house. It's only $125,000 and has 5 bedrooms and an office! It's right next to a school and close to so many businesses (and a mall Lol And it's only right down the street from where we are now.

we get to go see it tomorrow morning at 10am!!!!!
I'm soooooooooooooooo excited.

:yahoo::yahoo::yahoo::yahoo::yahoo:

So we saw this house today, and found out why it was so cheap. As soon as the guy opened the door all you could smell is mold :confused:.

And then the previous owners decided to put carpet in themselves, and did not do a good job at all, it's all lumpy, and then those strips used to finish up the edge of the carpet- like when you go from carpet to hard wood floors were randomly placed through out the house. The best part is that they used curtain rods to hold the carpet on the stairs down to the basement in place.

The bathroom in the basement was beautifully done, the bathroom upstairs was hideous. And I won't even get into the kitchen- oh what a disaster.

So needless to say we are not going to be getting this house. We expected to do some work, and we are ok with that and expecting it, but this would need months of work before it would even be livable.

And I was going to take pictures for you ladies, but it so wasn't worth it. But if you want to see the listing here it is: House
So oh well, the search continues!

Aww total bummer! I can't believe they would list the house the way you described it. Well I guess nowadays people are buying those types of houses to flip. Just keep searching, I am sure you will find the perfect house for your family.

Bummer about the house. When we were looking, it was amazing to see the condition of the houses that some people would put on the market. Give it some time and you will find something perfect.
