Vince has joined in on the house search. Ladies, be careful what you ask for! 🙂 He is trying and he’s being somewhat agreeable about what kind of house we’re looking and where we’re looking for said house so I’m not complaining. But, it’s like everything else we do . . either he doesn’t listen or I don’t communicate very well.
This morning we were both looking at houses online. We were looking in the same town and we both set the houses to show highest price to lowest price so one of us can say “Look at the one on Azalea for $XXX,XXX and we’ll be looking at the same house. He found one, told me to look at it. It was way smaller than our current house and has more rooms so I kinda ruled that one out without really looking at it too much. Then I looked at it and saw that it wasn’t really a house I was interested in – no basement; no place to sew, the kitchen is small.
After while, I hear Vince on the phone and he’s talking to a realtor about THAT house! Wait . . that’s the house I don’t really like. He is 100% sure I said I liked that house!
Kinda like when we found Rita. I was in MO and he was telling me names he might use. He said Rita and I said “I don’t really like that”. He said “OK. Rita it is!” Huh? When I got home, I said “Why did you name her Rita when I didn’t really like that name?” and he said “Oh! I thought you said you did like it! Now, it seems like a perfect name for her but it was funny.
Anyway, the realtor sent the disclosure for that house and I was cracking up reading it.
First, “Are there areas of house not served by central heating/cooling?”
Yes: Back deck
Really? Who has a house that has an air conditioned back deck??
“Are you aware if any of the above (structural modifications/alterations) were made without necessary permit(s)?”
Oops . . not sure I would admit that to the potential buyers or to the city authorities.
Anyway, it isn’t a house I’m interested in. The disclosure also said there’s been a mold issue and termites so I think Vince is no longer interested either.
