I Hate the Waiting!

September 16th, 2007 at 11:22 pm

Waiting. Seems like that is what real estate is all about ........at least after you have the property picked out.

We can't get questions answered re; the plat map until the county opens up the offices tomorrow. So, waiting for that. Seems the road to the house is most likely an easement, with the last 2 houses on the road using an easement through the house we're interested in. Would like to know for sure, as well as have it written down somewhere prior to purchase.

And, to top off the waiting........moms twin is here this week end and mom isn't sharing the house deal with her. So, we're waiting, and being quiet about it. Hard when it is pretty darned exciting.

My aunt took us out to dinner, so that was a fun treat. We've been pretty good with our meals, eating most of them at home, which I am certain is healthier; to say nothing of being cheaper.

I begged off shopping at the mall (yikes, was it a terror on the week end), when my aunt needed to "just run in for a bit". Sat in the car & knit! A much better use of my time. Can't believe how many people were at the mall.....trying to park was dangerous.

Daydreaming of the new place almost all the time.......no malls. Heck, no stores to speak of. I do believe there is a bait shop that also has the word groceries on their sign... Smile Post office, fire dept, and a school; but only through the 8th grade. Not sure what they do with high schoolers! We'd be almost an hour away from any sort of town with real stores and serious shopping. Sounds dreamy to me; but mom is making plans so she can get to Costco and Macy's on a regular basis.

Heading to the old house tomorrow to finish packing and have all my things organized for a truck & crew to come pick them up. Need to get them here, even if the beach house deal doesn't fly for any reason. Meeting with former room mate person this week to, laying out the finances for the house, to see if she honestly thinks she can handle the rent. Hate to go into a meeting with negative thoughts.......but I see no way this is going to work.

At least all this gives me stuff to think about while waiting for our offer to get written up and presented. Continuing to keep fingers crossed!

    Are you familar with the pros and cons of an easement running thru your property?

    Just thought i'd mention it, as the people who live behind me (an interior lot) have an easement (their driveway) across my property, in order to gain access to their home. It's written in the deed.

    I've never had any problems with my easement or my neighbors as they are very nice. But i do believe an easement is a liability to the person who owns the land. I'm not sure if i could ever be held responsible if there were an injury or car accident or whatever on that driveway becus i'm the owner. It's something to think about.

    I assume that responsiblity for maintenance of the easement (their driveway, my land) is my neighbor's responsibility, as they have never asked me to do anything. But you might want to check what the law says on that issue, and also on liability issues.

    (My neighbors did at one time express interest in buying the land their driveway occupies. Their driveway is in very rough shape, but they didn't want to spend the money to repave it knowing they didn't actually own the land. I was very interested in selling it to them since they're still going to be driving their cars up and down it regardless, and i could use the $$, plus it would lower my property taxes without changing anything else, really. But then they decided against it, i think after realizing what the value of that land would be in my pricey town.
