I found out the hard way that the Barnsdall Art Park farmers market is closed this week. BOO! Maybe tomorrow we can find one whilst I’m out with Aimee *I score 2 points everytime I use the W word!!* So I just went to the grocery store and picked up some basics and tons of water. On the drive home I just so happened to be in Eagle Rock near the foreclosure house I mentioned a few days ago, sooo…I decided to drive by just to take a peek. I was annoyed that there weren’t any photos of the house on the listing website so that lead me to believe the house was in pretty poor condition. I have seen foreclosures on HGTV that have been trashed by vindictive owners and they strip the house down to the studs. I expected to see the same but aside from some neglected landscaping, and a tarp over the balcony roof, it looks pretty fucking sweet. I mean, dare I say it? from what I saw this house may actually be nicer than my Atwater Village house! The location doesn’t compare, as lovely as Eagle Rock is *as well as being 10 minutes from Antz job* it’s a bit boring, too suburban for me. The street is mega wide.
So of course, I am completely obsessed *borderline crazy* with this house. Not only does it fit all my must-haves but the price is ridic!! BANANAS!! It almost scares me, my theory is someone must already have an offer on the house and the bank is taking forever to close. Antz theory is someone was either murdered inside or there are poltergeist in the house. Neither would stop me from wanting this house. Next step is to have our agent assess our house *my guess is $50 bucks* and give us a reality check on selling in this market. I also want her advice for what projects/how should we spend our money on remodeling. Tomorrow I’m going to call the listing agent for this house and see if there are any offers and if not, if he could give us a showing this weekend. How is this house still available for this price? What’s the catch? I would sell everything I owned *except my wedding ring* to get into this house. Now I’m living in Fantasyland!!
