    our Christmas present

    https://www.realtor.com/realestatean...1_M74380-71491


    We made an offer on a house in Hermann, MO, and it is likely this deal will go through. It is the same house I passed on last summer. The house is a bit of a dog, still on the market after 4 months. But we like it!

    The location, siting of the house, and the fabulous 1 acre is the draw for us. I want to be in town, and in a town that is lively. Hermann is a cute touristy town.

    The deal will be final on Friday. A contingency offer is in front of ours.

    It looks like it has nice sized rooms, good bones and a great lot. I think if they had cleaned out the house and done some painting and floor cleaning, it might have sold faster.

    I think the kitchen has great potential to look the original age with updated appliances and carefully selected colors and accents. My idea of heaven.

    I like it a lot--especially the view from the patio and the cozy upstairs bedrooms. And the trees. The acreage, not so much.
    The price is mind-boggling. Houses around here are ten times that. No wonder you pounced on it!
    A lovely Christmas present!

    Very nice, and it will be great with Iris and Lillie’s all over the property. Plus your DH can grow his tomoatoes and such. Like the wood floors.

    Good luck; I love it! And what Jane said, the price is incomprehensible to some of us in higher real estate markets!

    The price is low because this house has been built piecemeal and not in a quality way.

    Last week we went to Hermann to look at the house below, $60,000 more. It sold immediately. It is across the street from our house, has the same square footage, a big lot. It is solid and needs no work unlike our house.


    not our house, but for comparison:
