It all started off with an email. Somehow I found a real estate website that let me narrow down a search to a specific subdivision and price range and get an email each time one came on the market. Interestingly, I set up this search, thinking I was looking for the impossible. No house in the neighborhood I had decided was the perfect one for us, was priced below what we needed it to be. But, I thought, Hey, why not set up the search? Just in case.
So...weeks after setting up that search I get the email. This house. One of the largest in the neighborhood. Priced well below anything else. That doesn't sound good. There was only a picture of the outside. I knew it had to be in bad condition. But still.
I had to know.
We emailed and called the listing agent within an hour of it coming on the market. But we didn't hear back that night.
