Why? Potential trumps Beauty!
I am way more excited about buying a house that needs a ton of work but has great bones instead of the beautiful renovated third floor condo (sans elevator) with vaulted ceilings and a view of the woods and lake in distance…yada yada. Glad those sellers didn’t take our offer. I have never bought a house in “turn key” condition. So…
If I am going to invest in something to rent to our son, I have to feel good about it.
This has a nice location, walking distance to the Metra, good size back yard and room to grow. We shall see how it evolves.
