We bought our second home somewhat on a whim. It was put up for sale on a Friday night and we just happened to drive by and noticed it was for sale. It was also a foreclosure but one that had been somewhat redone.
The reason I say it was on a whim is because we had to tell him on Sunday or the price was going to increase $20,000! To us (at the time) it was a no-brainer. It was bigger than our first house but the SAME PRICE! I bought our first home after it’d only been on the market for four days so I assumed it would go quickly, as well. Nope. We ended up selling it to my brother (which was perfect) a year and a half later.
Now, as in today, our second home is being rented to a family who loves it as much as we did! Here are a few before/afters:
