Storms rolled through here again, rolling our asses out of bed at 4am, only because the window in the kitchen is fucked and it keeps flooding the floor. When i got up, Dave was already up, holding up the fort.
So he called the landlord this morning, bitching, and he tells Dave he's in Colorado, but its probably coz the gutter needs cleaned out. Whatever man. THEN he says to Dave out of the blue.... You wanna buy the house on a land contract??? What?!?! Hu?!?! I was in shock. He only wants $50,000 for it, and he'd keep our "rent" the same, and add 5% interest to it all. I dunno, this house needs a lot of work. For starters, new roof, the siding needs taken off, coz its aluminum, and new insulation and vinal siding put back up, the windows need replaced and I would want the breaker box looked out. The rest I could handle, the furance is only 3 years old. Its something to think about. I love this area, its where i grew up, and i couldnt afford what some of the houses around here are going for... uppers 80's into the $100,000.
Anyways, we are going to chew on it for a few days and talk to a few people, get some opinions before we jump in.
