Suzy and I attended an auction and apparently won the house we bid on at auction.com. So we now have a three bedroom, two bath fixer upper on Ames Lake with half an acre of land. Here are some pics for those who’ve asked. Note, we got the house, if the holding bank approves the deal, for significantly less than the sale price on the ad below.
The school bus stops out front for Amber and Nick. There is a shed on the property and parking for two vehicles. We’ll be carpeting the place with new stuff and purchasing a 3 bedroom, whole house furniture package for around a grand.
The walkway in the front yard will be redone with fancy paving stones and gravel layed for the walkway to the house, and a little paint will be done on the skirting. We also have to fix the footings (jack up, straighten and replace cinderblock and shim to level).
This is the front deck which has a partial view of Ames Lake that looks like this. The half acre is mostly old-growth trees and bushes with no grass to mow. Josie and the kids say they like the place. We hope to close by mid-April.
Here are some demographics based on this location:
