My daughter sent me a link to a house. It is SO cute. It needs some work, but mostly cosmetic as far as I can tell. It has good bones. In addition to the pictures on realtor.com, my daughter sent me pics from Google Earth, and my son went to the house and sent me a bunch of exterior pics. It is a foreclosure, and it is listed at 24.9k. It has been on realtor.com for a month already. I have spoken with the listing agent and late last night sent him a text that I would like to move forward with a home inspection.
The house is not in the same town where my kids live, but it is not too far either. It is 11 miles from my daughter's house and 16 miles from my son's.
So depending on what the home inspection shows, I may be moving MUCH sooner than planned. I am both terrified and SO EXCITED.
So before this popped up, last week I booked myself airfare to see my kids in September. My daughter and her husband have been in Mississippi for about 6 months now and will return home just before I come to visit. It is a long story and it isn't mine, but it has to do with his mother and a house he inherited. It has taken quite some time to get it all sorted, but things there will be wrapping up for them. My son and his wife had offered that I could stay in their spare bedroom during my visit. However, my daughter was planning on staying in a hotel the first few days they were back (so they can fumigate before moving back in) and suggested that we rent an airbnb. We found a nice one at a good price and she and I split the cost. I will still spend 2 or 3 nights at my son's house.
UPDATE: The house is under contract this morning, and not with me.
