Thanks to all who pulled so hard for us, apparently, it worked. :)
Last night, Ians dad came over and we had a nice supper together, had a real nice visit. We would never ask, even though he has the money, for that down payment the guy wants out there on the 31 acres. Well....he offered. It will be coming out of Shelbys college fund account. Since we don't have to pay the guy a lump sum, since he wouldn't agree to that, we will be able to put the 28,000 right back into the college fund account as soon as the house we are in is sold. It basicly is just giving us the flexability to do what we need to do now.
I found out, there is a disclosure letter. We will be getting a copy today. When someone lists with an agent, they have to fill out a disclosure on the property, so that is good. I told the real estate agent its not going to affect our buying the property, but we need to know what needs fixing, BEFORE we move in there, and fix it.
I also found out why the guy was being so stubborn about everything. He never wanted to move, and I have to say, I can't blame him. Turns out his WIFE, wanted to move back to town. We all make choices.
So, anyway, we are going out there today to get the disclosure letter and to reevaluate the property. We are taking a video camera and a notepad so we won't forget anything. Mainly we are surveying the repairs so we can get an idea of what we need as far as materials and such.
We are also getting the power cut on out there to check everything out. Found out the place is on county water,so that is a plus. There is a well, but it hasnt been used in two years, but it was working last they used it. Looked to be a new pump. He only used that for his garden.
So, things down here in Georgia are going well. :) The weather is going to be sunny and 60 today, a good day to go tromping around out on 31 acres. :) Y'all have a fine day, a very fine day, I know I will. :)
Thanks again for everyones continued support here, means a lot. As things progress, I will let y'all know how its going. Thanks again. :)
