We did not take the house.
It is beautiful all over. but few problems we did not like to deal with. 1. basement is pretty bad, we could have delt with it no prob. also no place to put our lawnmower as well since we have to go through the dinning room to the kitchen with the lawnmower to get it down all them steps. We don't want to destroy that. Also no insulation in the ceilings under the floors to the main floors.
2. All hardwood floors on the main floor and hallway in the 2nd floor. The 2nd floor hallway no prob with the hardwoods. But main floor yes because of no insulations in the basement it will be cold. WE don't like that and high gas bill. We can deal with the hardwood floors if the floors were insulated completely.
I love the bedrooms, the front one, oh it has bowed windows with 3 windows, very bright, Kitchen beautiful. I did not want to pass it up, but the flooring was a problem with no insulation at all. The attic is nice, can not be used as a bedroom due to fire. Only storage or recreation. Also it has no central air and we can not handle heat. Electric would go up if using so much fans.
So we are back looking again, the guy was very nice, he said he will not do any work on the house until he has someone who is going to take it and tell him what they want done on it like two twenty line for stove or gas line for stove etc. When we told him we will pass he seemed bummed out cause he wanted us to take it cause we were straight forward in what we wanted to see done, instead of going back and forth with things. He does no credit check either and that is what I like too.
But he told us if we change our mind give him a call. He does have quite a few ppl who wanted the house, but not straight forward with what they liked done to the house. Also he does not do rent to own because there is too much involved, etc and such.
