Well as much as like it here, it's time to move.
We have been snooping around for a while but it seems all the places we can afford are in bad parts of town. MAr and I have decided we can deal with this location. We figure worst case scenario is we live here for a while fix it up and either sell or turn into a rental
We found a place on the west side, technically it's not even in Youngstown.
567 Liberty road
It's the house on the narrow lot, right above the locater arrow
Switch to hybrid and zoom all the way in
It's rough. Theres a known leak in the roof. Kitchen needs redone along with the baths. Theres only a one car garage. Access to the back yard is through the garage, It has a garage door in the front and back. The Assessed Market Value is $34,500 (Mahoning County Auditors Website).
They want $16,000 for it.
I'm going to look at it hopefully tomorrow or Sunday
Heres the pics the owner sent me
I think that even if I have to put 10K to 12k in it I should be able to get my money out of it sooner or later. Even if I don't, I don't think I'll have a tough time renting it. We willl have to make a few changes in our life, slightly longer commutes for work is one. Second either the sawmill goes or I find a way to make it portable, or it goes to my brothers house. The yard would need to be fenced for the dogs. From what I can see I may have to scale back the garden a bit. So am I crazy or not. I'm not afraid of the work.
I'll get some better pics tomorrow hopefully
