In Escrow

The wedding was amazing! I hope to post one or two pics (with blurred faces ;)) once the photographer gives her set to us. I had hoped to get some time to relax, but we plunged headlong into the house search again (the housing market in our area is really tight) and found something... but it's verging on a fixer-upper and we had initially promised ourselves we wouldn't go for that.

We had the inspection over the weekend and discovered some good, some bad -

  1. Sewer is a-ok
  2. Roof needs to be replaced (not a surprise)
  3. Garage was shoddily constructed
  4. The additions are likely not permitted
This is not a comprehensive list above, obviously. This house can't really be called a fixer-upper, but it definitely hasn't been upgraded. Price is good for the area though.

Who out there has dealt with a real fixer-upper and what has your experience been? What about those who have purchased a house with unpermitted additions? Not a big deal?

In any event, this is an exciting time in my and H's life!! :)
