So it's time to sell and finally, FINALLY get a hobby farm going. Couple goats, chickens, hogs and experiment with some self sustaining energy. My
target goal is within an hour from work and that's not horrible.
Best of luck to you on that...this is also a desire of the wife and me eventually, and we were almost there about four years ago, but fired our
REALTOR after she blew the process and experience for us. We ended up getting a different home in an older neighborhood that ended up being a money
pit...the whole process sucked.
We're not waiting until we're out of debt and maybe our oldest is in college before considering again.
The best thing to do, though, even though it uses a lot of gas, is to just always drive past the property in lieu of wanting decent
photography--you're never going to get that. My mom's a REALTOR, and I'm a fine-arts major, so I get on her about that all of the time, but hiring
photographers just isn't something that most do.
why does everyone take their pictures with overcast conditions or right after a rain! COME ON REALTORS!
Beware of those properties with pictures after a rain--sometimes that is a tactic that hides issues with roofing or pavement and concrete. Also, it's
best to take pictures when the sky has clouds covering the sky, as it allows a better range of details between shadows and highlights--direct sunlight
causes issues when taking pictures of structures, but is better for taking pictures of actual land (IMO).
Just my two cents. Good luck finding what you're looking for--patience is a virtue, and the Fed didn't raise rates, so you don't need to rush to get
your house sold before mortgage rates go up.
