Oh these bring back some crazy memories! We were so excited and so overwhelmed at the same time. Little did we know we would be even more overwhelmed as we dug in and realized there would be very little that we could save. We bought this puppy with 0% down for a reason...we had no money..
So you might wonder why we would buy such a fixer upper? I don't know..cause I wanted to! I was ready to do all that fun stuff they did on Trading Spaces and we ended up charging a lot of it (which I don't recommend for most people) but I am one of those people that wants to pay off a credit card bill before I even receive the statement. I can't stand it and I will move around that debt to every 0% offer I can to avoid paying interest. We are also super thrifty and bought the best value for the least money kind of stuff..if it looked good of course! Thankfully we don't have to operate that way anymore but I am glad we took the plunge and did it. It all worked out in the end. We had a house that we loved that sold quickly for a profit..what more can you ask for?(oh how the market has changed!)
Here is a sneak peak of how it all turned out.
