GRATITUDE - September 29, 2012
I AM GRATEFUL FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO OBTAIN ONE LAST RENTAL HOUSE.
This is how we are hoping to allow Lise to retire 5 years earlier. We can live on Mac & Cheese for a while, but in the end we are hoping to have Lise join me in retirement five years ahead of time.
Lise remarked this one is like opening the mystery trunk you got in an estate sale and finding an 'old master' inside. Houses are selling in less than 24 hours now and there wasn't time to make an appt. to see inside the house before we placed our offer. After losing the last five offers we placed on this final rental home, we were lucky enough to win this one. When we got inside for the first time, we found that the home had been mostly recently remodeled. Lots of upgrades. All hardwood and tile floors, upgraded Corian counters in the kitchen and bathrooms, wall to wall cabinets in the garage, all new oak cabinets in the kitchen (they look like the were installed yesterday) and even a practically new hot tub in the back yard.
This will be a fun house to fix up (mostly yard work). I know a guy with lots of time on his hands that is ready to jump right on this project..
