We recently got some bad news. The vacant lot that we wanted in the gated community now has a contract on it. Several of the other lots in this community also now have contracts on them. It definitely seems we’ve missed our chance for this area. You may be asking yourself, if they want the lot so badly, why don’t they just put an offer on it? Well, that’s easier said than done. If you’ve read my post about financing the lot, you know how much money we’re talking about just for a down payment. Unfortunately, most of that down payment money is tied up in another property. The other property is on a great lot on a lake in East Texas. Also unfortunately, there’s not as much of a lake left after this summer. Texas has been going through a really rough drought so if anyone is looking for a lakefront home that is really more of a beachfront home right now, just let me know. In the meantime, I’m going to keep playing Mega Millions and hope for the best.
