We Have Awful Luck

Soooo the inspection… was not good.  Although I suppose it could have gone worse, but everything we suspected was wrong, was wrong.  The roof needs to be replaced, like yesterday, there are some rotted out windows, the Radon level was absurdly high, and the furnace and AC were original to the house… so from 1988.  Sigh.  Now, we negotiate on price to be able to afford to do all the things that need fixing.  Wah.

Anyway, after getting the news about the inspection, I decided to venture across the street to happy hour with some other co-workers.  I stayed for many more hours than I should have, but it was fun, and we met this guy!

Mike Aubrey from HGTV’s Real Estate Intervention, which is apparently done.  Although he did give us the inside scoop on a new show he’s filming for HGTV called power broker or something like that, but he said not to write about it on the internet.  Oops.  He was nice enough, although relatively douchey when he dropped a line about his ring from the Orange Bowl.  Psh, whatever.  He was out with a girl who looked young enough to be his daughter, but we were excited and totally obvious about discovering it was him.

Today, I am tired, and thinking about going home to PA for the weekend.  We’ll see though.  Happy Friday!

  1. Yikes, sorry about the inspection. I hope they’re willing to negotiate. If not, you’ll probably be saving yourself a headache. Good luck!

  2. Sorry again about the inspection, but hopefully they will realize that whether you guys buy it or someone else, that stuff is going to either have to be repaired or compensated for!

  3. That guy’s Hitler stach frightens me.

  4. I hate home ownership. Is it too late to talk you out of it?? I hope you guys negotiate a really good deal and have enough money leftover to make repairs!!

  5. Ugh, sorry about the inspection :( The house hunting process sounds so complicated and loooooong. I hope you guys get the price negotiated!

  6. Well, at least you were somewhat prepared, and weren’t expecting a perfect report. But seriously, that sucks. Especially the part about the roof. Putting on a new roof is freaking expensive.

  7. DANG IT!!! I figured something would be wrong though since the sellers wanted you guys to make an offer that couldn’t be revoked if insepection came back bad. I hope they aren’t jackasses and work with you on the price now that several thousands of dollars are needed to repair it.

  8. Aw, Kelly, I’m sorry about the inspection! Hopefully it will all work out :)
