A realtor for the seller of a house we had bid on contacted us that the
seller had a number in mind and was willing to consider a new offer.
We decided to take another look and bring Maria’s parents with us
to offer their opinion. The guy’s contractors have been busy and the place
is in even better shape than before, so with a few questions to be
answered, we made a new bid. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
Our fall back is to rent for a year and that option doesn’t seem bad
at all. There are a lot of empty apartments so availability isn’t much
of a constraint. One rental we might see tomorrow is a 2000 sq. ft.
carriage house with garage and a slate roof deck. Not too shabby.
