I bought my first house yesterday,I was renting all my life and knew it was time.My Uncle George buys,flips and sells houses.He shown me 4 other houses,I did not like them at all and one was already sold.Saw I was prepared and I had a budget.He finally shown me a repo house he bought 5 monthes ago which was flipped doing minor repairs.I loved the location,is across my twin brother Matt's house.Plus I was saying "I love" a lot,has a 2 car garage I wanted storing my motorcycle,a 2007 Harley Davidson 883 Sportster.Loved the master bedroom and bathroom.Lots of room in the master bedroom with closet space.The master bathroom has two sinks so my future new SO has his own sink to do his things.Finally My Uncle George gave me an offer I could not turn down,I said deal and we shook hands.Sign papers on Monday and he is going to have one minor issue fixed.His painter forgot to paint a small spot in one bedroom which will be my daughter's room.I am excited and my twin brother Matt is cool about having me as a neighbor,brings us together more.

He had it listed for $185,000.00 and gave me an offer of $170,000.00.Plus I wanted a big back yard,I love to entertain having family and friends over.has this with good sized deck.leaves me money to put in a bonfire spot,part of the back yard is not finished for this reason.Going to put in a bar in the basement also.
