Everyday, hubby and I including our family in MS are watching the property listings in Mississippi. We are using Trulia, Zillow, Remaxand Realtor websites to check them out. We are constantly in-touch with our Realtor in MS and when we find a property that we really like, we have her to check it out first. Since February so far, we found 4 properties that we really like and before we can put and offer, it was sold. Well, that's the disadvantage of buying a house in other states. Anyway, my husband found this property today and it has more than an acre lot by the lake, with a good size pool, and the inside needs paint but other than that, it's in good shape. My sister-in-law went there to see the property.
The location is about 30 minutes commute to where I am going to work. Not bad because there's no traffic in the area. I have been there countless times. The best part is that, we will be neighbors with my sister-in-law's family.
The bad news that we gather awhile ago when we called our sister was that, there were 6 offers on the table this afternoon. One of the offers came from their friend too. We are not counting to get this property but, we will put our best offer and see where it goes. Our advantage at this point is we will pay cash but, who knows, others might be cash offers too.
If this property is meant for us then, it will be ours.
