it's raining!!! a great day to look at houses, don't you think?!?!

You may or may not agree.   I think a rainy day is a perfect day for looking at houses.  You can tell if the gutters are working, if the roof is leaking....and other things that can only be discovered on a rainy day.

I'll never forget the cutest apartment we were looking at.  It was a beautiful, sunny day.  The apartment was great!  Couldn't beat the location!  And the price, wow!   We couldn't believe this was even available.  We wanted it bad :)      And the landlord was great, too.     We were going to be signing the lease on the 15th, but he allowed us to move some belongings in way before that.  Nice guy :)

I couldn't wait to start taking some boxes to the new place.  It was a rainy day, but that didn't bother me.  It's only water, right!       The first thing I noticed when I got there was the waterfall pouring from the roof directly in front of the front door.   Good thing there was another entrance.    The next thing I noticed was as soon as I opened the door.   It hit me right away.  A terrible odor.  ugh.   From what I can remember, it was a bad mix of musty basement/filthydirty oven/and dog urine.   It was gross.  There was no way I was leaving any boxes there, let alone moving in!    Thank goodness it was raining, or it would have been too late by the time we found out. 

Thank you Mother Nature, let it rain, let it rain, let it rain!!

 

Anyone else have any rainy day stories???

That's right - you heard me, lol. The way I look at it, everytime a buyer picks a house to look at it's like setting up a blind date! You want your house to make the best possible first impression, so that maybe there will be a second date… more
