Put an offer in on that house!

It actually looks much nicer and brighter IRL than in the photos online...Owners built it for their mom, who has passed, and they are renting it to their son and his SO, who are in transition.

1.6 acres, but most of it woods. A brook runs through the property. There's cosmetic work: painting, removing yucky carpet and putting in a wood floor (kitchen and baths have a vinyl that looks just like wood...might try to do that throughout. It looks nice and is easy to care for). Maybe extending the deck in back that overlooks the brook.

Master bedroom is large enough, and there's enough closet space for me. The other two bedrooms are small, but fine for guest room, office, or man cave options.

Dd and her fiance are very interested in renting our current house for a year or more, and that will allow us to deal with our basement and garage junk more slowly. Fiance is a handy guy, so he will do some cosmetic work to get the house ready for sale.

Waiting to hear from the seller. We would be willing to pay full price, but offered less...I will be an easy person to bargain with.

Say a little prayer for me! This is going to be a crazy summer...lots of good things, but all stressful in their own way.

Sellers made a counter offer....we responded with an offer in between our original offer and their counter...Hoping we will settle on that, but I would be perfectly happy paying the asking price, so we are just playing the bargaining game right now.

How very exciting! It sounds lovely with the acreage and woods and brook. As for the vinyl in the kitchen and baths— it is possibly luxury vinyl plank. We have that in our living room and really like it. It will be great if they accept your counteroffer

That fact that the original owners had the house built for their mom is very reassuring. I imagine they would want mom to have a nice place. Located conveniently right in town *and* on acreage?! That's a huge plus, too, as you get the best of both worlds. It sounds lovely, and ideal for your needs. Best wishes for a successful close of the deal!!

It sounds wonderful and perfect for you! My prayers are with you!

I vote that you go ahead with the vinyl. We have vinyl that looks like wood throughout our home and we love it!
