We bought it

We made an offer on the first one in my previous post and it was accepted!

Here is a map of the place. We are 2 blocks from Encanto Park, 5 blocks from Central, 9 blocks from the light rail stations at Central/Thomas and Central/Encanto, 10 blocks from the Heard Museum.

We have decided to sell our house and move to some place like the Willo or Roosevelt districts. Here are a couple of houses that we have looked at:

I was ready to buy this one

{This was a link to a house on West Almeria, the link is no longer valid.}

Susan didn't like the flooring in the first house and thought that the yard would be too much work. The second one turned out to have the businesses facing McDowell across the back alley (pawn shop, tattoo/piercing parlor, apartments).

We have gotten hooked up with a real estate agent and have started cleaning out closets.
