So hubby and I spent all day in the new town looking at houses and getting to know the roads. 7am - 5:30ish p.m. Yes, all day.
We found this really wonderful house that needed carpet and paint and some yard work, but all very affordable considering the asking price. Good neighborhood too.
It must have been bank owned, I don't remember, but anyway we found a lady (Juanita) and she showed us several homes including this one. We wanted it. It had this strange dip in the back yard....hmmm...rocks in it...hmmm..."Is that a sink hole?" I asked laughing, because- really! Yup. Juanita called back while we were still in town..a sink hole!!! The realtor that was selling it had also just found out and was very upset about it too. It's now a worthless property. ACK!! At least we didn't own it and were the ones trying to sell. Sink holes are awful in this state, and once you have one on property no insurance will cover you and they can grow and swallow the home! Bummer.
