a little househunting update

Well, there's been a lot going on.

We made an offer on a duplex. The seller didn't want to negotiate, eventually giving in on a few things in his counteroffer but nothing of significance. We made a counter-counteroffer which we might have regretted in the unlikely event that he accepted it, but he didn't and now we're moving on. He is not going to sell that house anytime soon. No one will likely want to buy it by his terms. He'll probably just keep renting it out and wasting peoples' time. It would have been nice in that it didn't need stuff repaired immediately, but it wasn't the prettiest thing.

We did find out that another house we'd liked didn't sell after all. The buyer backed out after inspection. We're hoping its because they failed to notice problems with it that we did notice, rather than that it has additional problems. We might make an offer on it, but we're still trying to see everything out there that might work for us. perruche_verte will probably check some stuff out next week (while phoenixredux and I are in Vancouver for our honeymoon), and see if it's worth considering.

Eek, I get married on Saturday. Must do a zillion things to get ready! Actually its not that bad but I still have a lot I need to do.

You get married on Saturday??! How did I miss that? I must not be paying attention. Congratulations! What's your dress like? Where's the ceremony?

My dress is pale green silk, has a low back with lacing across it, and is very cleavagy. My mom made it and its not what I would have chosen, but it'll be lovely nonetheless.

The wedding is at Thompson Park in West Saint Paul.

Househunting. I found a 4-plex, by the U, up for 350 k. Friend of mine is selling it. Is that ball park?

Well, we'd need to find some extra people to live there. And it might not be in the right location. What are the unit sizes like?

The location is at Van Cleave Park, Como and 15th SE. I don't know what the units are like, but the former owner lived in both units upstairs, and rented the 2 down below.

I'd enjoy living in that neighborhood (where I grew up), but phoenixredux doesn't want to because of the commute.
