red cottagePosted: January 12, 2010
sure. i’m on the brink of losing my job and yet i’m still going on a palm springs vacation and i couldn’t help but drive by a house-for-sale today that just took a big dip in price. house buying? traveling? who do i think i am? one of those first-time homebuyers who takes advantage of that 8 grand tax rebate after martini-ing it up in the swank goodness that is palm springs, that’s who.
these photos were taken right at dusk so they’re a little dark, but can you see the potential? ok, there’s no furnace. and the windows are posing an issue. and that front step railing, well, that could use some help. i have no clue as to what the inside of this place looks like, but i may have to make an appointment for a showing. in my mind i see “charming swedish cottage in a new england setting with hardly any work at all needed and cheap to heat.” in reality, well, let’s face it – it’s probably a dump.
huh? huh? do you see the hidden charm? and bonus – it’s still maintaining WOOD siding. no crap vinyl siding that is taking over the world and ripping the souls out of old houses left and right.
oh, i dunno. it’s probably overpriced for its diminutive size and amount of work needed, but it does sport 2 bedrooms. and a garage. let’s keep focusing on those positives.
