So I got really excited last night on the way back to STL (I can't call it home yet because I feel like a transient) I drove by another house in Fairview to look at. I loved it. L-O-V-E-D it. The neighborhood was really nice, the houses were spread out, was on a corner lot. It was built in 1999, and had everything we were looking for (3-bed, 2-bath and 2-car garage). And it was listed $25k less than most of the houses we're looking at, which is why I drove by. The internets are not always reliable as to the surrounding conditions of a perfect-looking house.
This morning I emailed our agent to ask more about it, planning to tour the interior ASAP, and said it was a foreclosed house and already has a contract on it.
