I should have listened to my Mom when she told me to SAVE SAVE SAVE. I know this is an unfortunate time with the horrible economy, mortgage crisis, job losses and so forth but if you have the dough, 2009/2010 is a great time to buy a home.
Unfortunately, I wasted my money away on shopping, shopping, shopping and I don't even know what and now my favorite home in the neighborhood is on the market. Darn!!! It's actually my second favorite home next to my first love (Barbie's dream home) seen in a blog post here.
It's a block away from me, on the corner, one block up from the beach. Soooo cute. I love the style of it and how they have decorated the outside with the white and yellow paint, all the gorgeous flowers and greenery AND a white picket fence. It keeps getting better and better.
Side view. It's ONLY 1156 sq feet. NOT that big. I guess you're paying for location, location, location.
Unfortunately for me, the asking price is $1,125,000. *tears*. Yeah, that's million. I thought home prices were dropping? I guess the beach doesn't count.
I love that bay window. This home is definitely for someone who appreciates design, craftsmanship and the beauty of flowers and greenery. This house is perfect for me!
LOVE the french doors.
Straight outside that window and down one block is the beach. They say it has an ocean view. Hmmm...maybe more like a glimpse. I stood on the corner of the sidewalk right there and could hardly see the ocean. Maybe a better view from the upstairs.
Ugh. Living in So Cal, I will never be able to afford a home, especially in a beach community, where I MUST live. If only I were an funded heiress. *sigh
Well, even if I had the funds, the price is just too high in this market. Hey, but if it ever drops to 1/4th the price (yeah right), I'll jump at the chance to put an offer in ;p
