Where's the Beef?

Recently I’ve been showing more buyers around than usual, and that’s a good thing! But what is available in the more affordable range is quite discouraging. The list of properties available between $70,000 and $125,000 in Fremont county is long and large. Everything from manufactured homes that will not go FHA to site built homes that are near tare downs at best.

In the last few weeks one particular buyer, her friend and I have seen the good, the bad and the ugly. Today we saw 3 manufactured homes.

The first was so moldy that the three of us could only walk 10 in feet before bolting out of the house.

The second, a bank owned had a broken front door, broken back door and everything in between was “iffy” at best.

The third house is a wonderful looking place on an acre. And the upside is that it’s within my buyers budget, in above average condition, has great views. Finally the first one in approx 20 homes we’re looked at in several weeks that fit’s the bill.

My buyer is looking for a place that she can live in long term. She wants to stay in the area indefinitely. She needs an affordable, comfortable home with enough land to grow a veggie garden and keep some chickens.

Why is that a lot to ask for anymore? Where’s the beef? The beef is a home that is priced right, is in good condition and one that buyers want to buy.
