Fingers Crossed

My mom went and looked at the house today. She said it was nice, and that she would probably make an offer. It is a foreclosure, and needs a little work, but most of it is cosmetic. The carpet would need to be replaced, and the walls repainted. She said the kitchen was kind of small, and somewhere down the line she would look into Rochester remodeling to maybe make it a little bigger. They weren't sure if the pool filter worked, but she did get to look in the building out back. Apparently the previous owners were making it into a pool house because there was a toilet and shower already installed. The rest looked to her like it was used as a workshop, and she told me that Junior would be able to work on cars in there. Her realtor found out that the offer that was made on the house was for less than half of the appraised value. Did that make sense? The good news with that is that my mom can offer a little more than they did, and still get it for a steal. Her realtor warned that it could turn into a bidding war, but that's okay. If it's meant to be, my mom will get the house.

I really hope she does, because I will be over there every night swimming. It's good exercise, you know.
