For the last 4 months, I have looked at these pictures over 200 times. When you are involved in a short-sale and you are only given three photos, you end up day dreaming about kitchen paint colors while staring at a front porch.
We made an offer on the house in the first week of May, 2013. We received notice that the seller accepted the offer a couple days later. We then waited 3 months to hear back from the bank. I have heard stories of short-sales lasting 6 to 12 months, so I consider us lucky. We close on Aug. 20th! I will be moving in by the end of the month.
Here are some stats on the house:
Year built: 1921
Total Bed/Bath: 2/1
Current total sqft: 924
Neighborhood: Hiawatha (Minneapolis)
Listing Info: Nice location, walk to M’haha Park & Falls, River Pkwy & light rail. Hardwood floors, formal dining w/built in buffet, front porch, newer 2+ garage, fenced yard.
My thoughts: I am excited to start the work and see how this house will transform!
