Things do happen for a reason!!!

Monday, December 30, 2013

So we didn't get the house that we wanted a week ago, but a new opportunity came to play. My MIL has a landlord that works with people on section 8 and social security. Now my husband does have an amazing job and is looking to move up soon. But for right this second he is making just enough. So we called up her landlord and she had a house she was fixing up to rent out. We asked about the place and got her to show us the property. The neighborhood isn't that great but my MIL knows almost everyone around there and the landlord has more properties in the same area. The house is a three bedroom two and a half bath, with wash room. The kitchen is huge and the dining room is bigger too. The wash room could double as a game room as well.
The other house we wanted was a two bed one bath and had a wash room but it wasn't as big as this one. The kitchen was nice and had a built in china cabinet but it was way smaller than this one. The other house also needed a lot of repairs that the landlord wasn't planning on doing. Where as this landlord is fixing everything she can before we move in and will probably continue while we are there. The stipulations of this house is to take care of it. That was all she asked. I am not a big party person and I don't care for drunken raging parties so I don't anticipate destroying her house like that. My husband and I hardly drink, we don't do drugs and we have two children that we don't want taken away!!!! Plus I'm like your typical 1950's housewife. I cook, I clean, I garden, I sew, I crochet etc.... If I had the body of one I would totally sport the Stepford look.
I am so excited about this house and we already have it she isn't even going to take any more applications. She even told my MIL that the other applicants she had she didn't even want to consider, so it's all ours.

    It is hard to find some one section 8 that cares for the place as if it was there's. From a poor Landlord. Renters have been bad to me. Stole destroy deface. It is nice a good person got a chance to be good back to a willing Landlord.
    I sound rotten to the core but property taxes for Oregon are high. One renter moved out from a 6 month lease I thought I would get Taxes paid. emoticon emoticon emoticon
