We were hoping to follow up that last post about fixer-uppers with the news that we finally found this perfect little project home. Alas, it too, was almost perfect.
Perfect in every way except that our offer was denied! Would you believe, in this economy, in rural Colorado, there are bidding wars going on for fixer upper homes? This place had everything going for it. And for us. Three plus acres, good access, well, septic, ample parking, a great garage, and a cute cabin in serious need of manageable repairs.
This forclosure had been vacant for months and was only on the market for two days when we saw it. After rushing back to town we discovered others were interested so we placed a solid offer above the asking price. But someone else’s offer was obviously better. That deal can always fall through … but we’re not keeping our hopes up. That way they won’t be shot down again.
