This was a no from the get go because of the bad floor plan.
This is now off our list because for what it is, I still feel that it is over priced, the floor plan is very closed off (I want something more open) and I'm not a fan of the street it is on. I still love the cute porch and red door.
This one is out as well, it is a beautiful beautiful house, but not my style, top of our price range, and the smallest lot.
Let's switch gears and we will be using A and B because we are down to 2 houses and have thrown an new one into the mix.
(AKA "The Dirty House")
If you don't mind we are going to rename this home "The Orphan House" because it wants to be a great house, it just hasn't had parents to really take care of it and show it how to fulfill it's potential.
(I took this picture last time I was there, so it is different than the picture in the last post)
Basement is finished
I love the view
I love the street
For Salt Lake it is a less desirable area (not run down, it just isn't the hip place to live) which I'm cool with
It is dirty
We will have to put some money into it
Nothing is done in the yard
The SJ house
Fully Fenced-4 separated corrals
It has a great barn
The house is a little outdated in some things, but I could live with it, and slowly change them-no need to immediately change things like the orphan house
A desirable area (by other peoples standards)
Space for 3 bedrooms, family room, and storage room in the basement (con, we would have to finish the basement)
Great access to the highway/freeway
Has a few fruit trees
Great investment, great deal
Can be sub-divided, so if we wanted, we could make some money off of it.
Top or our budget
Quite a bit smaller than the orphan house
The basement is not finished
It is just 2 lots in from a busy road (but the actual road it is on is not busy)
the lot includes the barn on the left and goes all the way back to the grey house/white fence in the background
We are putting an offer on this home today. We have faith that if it is the right one, everything will go through with it. We still have a home inspection scheduled next week for the "orphan house".
