A Walk through the Neighborhood

September 25th, 2010 at 01:52 pm

Daisy and I went walking through the neighborhood the other afternoon. I noticed that there are quite a few houses for sale in our neighborhood. Generally thatís not a surprise; we live in a ďstarter homeĒ kind of area. The surprise was how many homes were for sale. Daisy and I like to look at houses, and it gives me a chance to pass on information about houses and finances in a low-key setting. After looking at some of the flyers she asked about square footage, forced air and carports. I brought up the general prices of houses in our neighborhood and that we donít share how much money we make or how much our house costs with others.

While walking we picked up three flyers.

House #1 must be an estate sale. ďGrandmaís houseĒ they called it. House is small and needs updates.

We drove by House #2 a few days ago and noticed it was for sale. At the time I commented to Mr. H that it must be a foreclosure since the grass wasnít mowed. Sure enough, it is bank owned. Unless it needs a lot of structural fixing itís a good deal.

House #3 is on our block. It has been for sale a long time. I checked Zillow when I got home. Itís been for sale for about 450 days.

Mr H looked at the flyers when we got home. He commented that all of these houses need work. I guess itís a statement on the times.
