The cabin is a D log home (the logs are not round, they are flat backed (or D shaped). The interior was good, at a glance needing:
Carpet removed from the bathroom and tile installed
Carpet in the 2 bedrooms (they had linoleum but in a cabin we both think carpet is good in the bedroom areas).
The outside is 3.04 acres with 550 feet of creek edge property down the back slope (and some property on the other side of the creek). It was used for horses, has several outbuildings with power, a good well, etc.
|3 stall horse barn|
|Close building is a 1 bedroom no bath cottage, far building is I don't have a clue|
|Property needs work, including tree's cut down and general TLC|
|Oh, more trees to cut|
|Behind the cabin, another dead tree|
That's not a bad thing, it's just sweat equity, something we are good at. I made an offer. Our realtor, while working the offer up sent the listing agent an email thanking them for letting us see the property and asked about 2 concrete slabs (we assume one is the septic and one is the original most likely hand dug well now covered). The listing agent replied, "we are firm on the price, I'll ask about the slabs."
This is like going to a car dealer and being told the price is firm before you even know if the customer likes the vehicle.
Every property will need work in order to get it up and running the way we want, but having to do a TON of work to get it to normal (renting a dumpster for 3-4 loads of death infested building wood to start) is something we consider to be valuable, it's our time. I don't know why people list property when it's really not ready to be sold. Spend a few weeks and clean it up, cut the damn grass, drop the dead tree's, remove the horse fence, clean up the 2 year old horse shit, remove the hay, mouse poop, etc.
So I got horse shit on my cowboy boots and we made an offer on the other cabin I posted about before. Lets see if they want to play games.
