Little Nyssa Posted February 19, 2012 Share Posted February 19, 2012 I may have found THE house... it is the right size, the exact neighborhood we want, and right price (according to Zillow, which can be wrong I know), and has hardwood floors (so no need to rip out the carpet for DS's asthma). It has a porch & a yard & a view. We've driven past 1,000 times, like stalkers. :001_smile: and DH likes it too.:001_smile: I found out about it from a friend whose best friend owns the house. They are remodeling it before putting it on the market and want to move this summer, which is when we want to move, 'cause our lease is up then. It turns out that the family who owns it have a DD in my son's class. I know I have met the mom but I don't recall her face. It sounds ideal-- but how would you approach this? Help, I am a complete neophyte.:confused::tongue_smilie: Should I contact them & ask to see it? Should we only see it with our agent? He is looking into it as far as he can-- I guess realtors have access to info that we don't. Or should we wait til it goes on the market? How do I prevent them from remodeling it out of our price range?:001_smile: What kinds of things should I not say, when I see it, such as "Oh, don't bother fixing that for us!" How do you get the right of first refusal? Do you have to pay for it? Thank you for any & all advice! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
