Remember that song? I'm feeling that today.
I'm sick of real estate shenanigans. I'm sick of Orange County. And I'm just plain sick - coughing up nasty things and my whole face hurts. We are resubmitting our offer today. $360k, as is, 10% down. Half of me hopes they say no again.
There's a property further up the canyon that's significantly cheaper - asking $169k and it's been listed for 105 days. There must be something wrong with it, I suspect there may be a right-of-way through the property. It's also smaller by almost 800 square feet, BUT that would make a mortgage of only $730 a month, plus property taxes of $1700 or so a year. The lot is big, but I wonder about the right of way and how much is actually usable.
There's also a half-acre property down the street from my Aunt Patty in Ontario. It has two houses that allegedly rent for $1600 and $800. The asking price is $265k, but I would lowball. Then in 5 years or so we could leave OC. bleargh, i don't know what to do.
