What seems other worldly to me is when they take the same area and use different houses (one is still decked out in its 70's glory, the other has "upgrades") They want you to decide on the price by basing on prices of other homes, or the "potential" of the house. I understand you can do $35,000 in make overs. Why does this make the house worth $100000 more? The cost of the land doesn't change. They tell you 3 other houses in the area sold for (insert $ here) and you should pay what they paid or you're bringing everyone elses value down.
Imagine buying a car for sticker value because somebody else did before you. Oh and we won't tell you if the one they paid for had to have new seats,no radio and 3 cylinders aren't working. They are crazy.
I am not even going to start on the financing part of this, where you qualify for certain amount and have stellar credit but somebody else made bad credit decisions so we are going to make you pay for that as well. Or you must pay more to insure that you can really pay for what you borrowed. If you don't think I can pay don't lend. AUGHHHHHHHH!!!!
Beam me up Scotty. we are going to look some more today as the other home went to somebody else...or did it? Why do they ask for back up offers? If the person whose offer they took was so great why do you want back ups?
Maybe my view will change when I've seen so many properties that they all blur into one and I really start thinking like a Realtor and can even understand their language.
Maybe a 2 hour commute each way from nowhere won't be so bad.

I believe we will know by Monday at the latest. I think this weekend will be used to start cleaning out the junk so we won't have to much when we do move.
Wish us Luck!

The yard has lots of work so anyone wanting to come visit can help pull weeds and help trim back the vegetation.My favorite spot might be the fireplace. I love the hard wood floors.
I like the 500 sq/ft family room. It will also be nice when everyone comes home. And they will come home. If we are lucky enough to get this home. It is in Yorba Linda close to the Placentia line.
Wish us luck!
