A Common Trait In Real Estate!

So the cat has been around the block, and by around I mean like a world wide walk, when it comes to matters of real estate. Moved 16 times so far to date. Isn't it fun to see what they say to try and get you into a new bay?

Great lakeside view!
Even some grass to chew.
The lake = a cow pond.
Maybe there is a lake in the great beyond?

Situated in a unique place.
Such a unique embrace.
High traffic and lots of smog.
That is sure one unique bog.

Security cameras everywhere.
Means it is such a great lair.
It has a high crime rate.
But forget that and take the bait.

Even has a shed!
Wow, can that really be said?
Oopsy, no garage at all.
Enjoy the shed, have a ball.

A great view!
My, it has two.
Each a big hole in the wall.
View, weather, bugs and all.

Unlimited potential is had!
This will be a great new pad.
There will always be something to fix.
Your wallet will take its licks.

Priced for immediate sale!
So come and hit the trail.
Something is about to break.
So come, buy and that burden, take.

Oozing with charm!
Sound the alarm.
The place is damp.
No need for a magic lamp.

A fixer upper!
Better off living in dishes of tupper.
Means you'll have to tear it down,
And build a new one in town.

On a very private lot.
Means to nowhere near you can trot.
It will also be hard to find.
But it is still one of a kind.

Any you have come across you wish to add? They sure try and pull a fast one when people are looking for a pad. Descriptions are sometimes full of crap. It is good most aren't a sap. So run if a place smells like rotten gas, just trust my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

    need some woodland on the estate
    and a small lake that would be great
    that would bring a smile to my face

    if you cast your worries in burden lake
    would you be granted a tax break

  6. No matter where you move there is going to be a problem.. You learn every time. I learned this time to be careful If the real estate agent adds an exception to the contract. It is never in your favor.

  8. We've been looking at houses and definitely found that! We found the perfect house...but it's just a bit above our price range...so we're going to wait and save up more for the down payment. We're in a 2-bedroom, 1 bath house right now and we both work from home...so we're definitely living below our means!

    1. That is a good choice indeed
      Both work from home at your feed
      That must sure be nice
      Saves on the gas price

  39. Moving blows. We moved every other year when I was a kid, but I went to 3 different schools in 3rd grade. I swore, when we bought our house, we were staying until we buy a retirement home down south.

    And yes, the crap they try to entice you with to move into a dump is beyond ridiculous. I suggest driving by the house all hours for a few weeks to make sure that the neighbors are folks you can stomach to live by also.

      Damn, in new kid life you had to wade

  40. Ah the lakeside view that's really a mosquito marsh RIGHT outside of your back door. Or the lakeside view that's not mentioned when a yard is totally flooded ankle deep when it rains. Or the fairly big pond that's awesome in your front yard (right off the deck) that you find out is partially owned by neighbors. We saw all three when we were house hunting for the home we're in now. We put an offer in on that last one until the shared pond was disclosed...then we withdrew. Whew, close save. ;)
