A jaunt across the Great Plains
1 June 2009 2 Comments
Tomorrow we traverse the plains on our way to Nebraska, seeking out “a place with lower housing costs and more part-time work” as my previous post talked about. Internet access will be sketchy and limited over the next week.
Our projected budget, generally from $50-60k, is limiting, even in these less expensive markets. There are a few decent prospects though. Property tax is much higher up there too, which will be something we factor in while looking at potential properties.
The one I like best at this point has only one drawback, as far as a person can tell via the internet.
It’s on a busy street, which is probably why the remodeled house hasn’t sold after being on the market six months. The classic bungalow boasts oak floors, trim and built in bookcases. It’s on the high end of our budget, although the realtor suggested the owner was pondering a lower price.
Oh, and our house is now listed with a realtor and in the MLS database! Kudos to our real estate agents for uploading a lot of pictures. It drives me batty when 1) there are no pictures of a house you see online and 2) there isn’t even a realtor’s name associated with that listing. Basic stuff here folks. Also don’t forget about the website I set up featuring our bungalow for sale as well: http://HouseForSaleSiloamSpringsArkansas.wordpress.com.
