I spent the next few hours emailing back and forth with my real estate agent in Incline. Thanks to her quick investigation, we found out that what I thought was a bargain was in fact a bargain that would entail about $300K in renovations. Ouch. Good news? It proved to me that when something does become available, I will move quickly.
My dear friend Larramie, dispenser of insight and wisdom called me out on 'hedging' my bets in yesterday's post....and she's right, when I want something dearly I often lose confidence and thus hedge to soften the blow of disappointment that I'm sure is just around the corner. So today I'm going to be brave, I am amending the last paragraph of that hedge-y post:
So, one decision has been made: my intention is to find a job and a house in the Lake Tahoe area. I WILL be able to find the successful combination of my intention and the realities of the job market, I will remain open to the best outcome.
There. That's better. (fingers crossed!)
