Looking for the next real estate project in a hot spring market in the Boston area…Several towns have caught our interest, all with focus on good schools for the kids. A nice difference from the Norwegian real estate market is the size of lots you can get in this area…if you are looking 15-20 minutes away from the city, that is. Looked at an interesting house the other day, it had been scooped up by an real estate developer who had put in an low ball-all cash-no contingency- offer and got it. Now she was trying to flip it for a quick profit. I like ugly houses with good bones, and this one was definitely ugly;
All the bedrooms (and bathrooms!) had padded walls covered in fabric. All I could do was picture the bugs falling into my hair as I tried to take that down…We ended up not making an offer, they were simply asking too much for it.
