Leaving Bethany, MO we decided to head toward Illinois but couldn’t help doing a drive by of one final house on our list. After a quick phone call to the list agent we managed to finagle our way inside to take a look with the sellers giving us a tour. Agents, never let your clients do this! They proceeded to point out everything that is wrong with their property. Lovely people, very honest. The property was ringed by a railroad on one side and a busy road on the other. Even a ton of fruit trees and some lovely original features inside couldn’t overcome the water in the basement, mold and ticks. Off our list it came.
