This has been an EXHAUSTING process! We have looked at almost 50 homes, put in 10 offers and finally got one! My Fiancé and I will be moving to Lawson here in about 2 months if everything goes smoothly. Looks like it's just inside Ray county so we will be saving on tax money from Clay county as well!

OK. I missed the connection. We bought near Stockton Lake. Nice lake but not as crazy traffic-wise as LOZ. Also, no homes on the lake so the lake is surrounded by undeveloped land other than state parks and a few marinas.

Thanks everyone!

It is. We looked at a small 3 acre property probably another 10-15 minutes outside of Lawson. My Fiancé said that was further than she wanted to drive . I'm still happy with the decision however.

Congrats and I'm jealous.

We have been looking for a year, easily. Everything either needs massive amounts of work, needs a little work and goes for over ask, or just plain gets bought sight unseen.

We will probably build just to unsure we get something we can live with.

The junk people are throwing money at blows my mind.

I just sold and bought a house.

In my observations.......

You will need to make an offer within 3 days max of it being listed and plan to pay 10%plus over asking if the sellers agent says they are getting multiple offers to review.

I was able to snag what I wanted by making my offer look better. Large down payment, large earnest payment pending closing and offering as-is purchase up front. Basically guaranteeing that the sale will close unless the inspections are totally fucked.

Damn. I thought we had a rough go at it lol.. We ran into the same issues. I really don't mind a house that needs some work, but some of the homes we walked into and their asking price didn't justify us buying them. We could buy one to fix up and spend probably 50 grand to do so,, or spend 20-30 grand more on a house that's move in ready and maybe paint a couple rooms.

For the record, this is some of the things we saw. Attachment Attached File

Hard to tell, but this wall was maybe 1 1/2 feet tall.

Highly doubt this would pass an inspection.

Again, hard to tell, but my calf wouldn't fit in between this gap.

Yup! I forgot to take a picture of the 6 foot rooster statue that another house had. I wanted to put an offer on it only to have the contract read that the gift cock in the back yard needed to be removed

We’re in the same boat. Constantly offering well over asking. Been at it for a year

No, Kansas City in the Northland. I didn't think gigantic roosters were a thing. Apparently they are lol.

It is higher, but still cheaper than Clay by several hundred dollars.
