Home Inspection

Well, we met with the home inspector last week. Let's just say that there is a long list of items we are bringing to the seller. It's an old cabin and as such, needs some TLC. Some of the issues will cost money, so we are going to approach the seller and say that he has to reduce the price accordingly. We had a builder up there two days ago who is writing up an estimate for the work.

We aren't sure how the seller will respond since we have already gotten him to come down in price significantly. Now we are going back for more. In fact, a lot more.

So now we have our fingers crossed again. We love the place but it needs to be a great deal. We'll keep you posted.

Inspection Day

Next Saturday, 12/12 is the inspection. We're excited to see the place again, this time through the eyes of a professional. Hopefully everything is sound, in which case we move on to a contract!
