It is not a simple question, because this is the sort of house you would not be able to move in to at once. It is not like you could sign the paperwork and then go live in this place. It is going to need a good bit of work to be done. The home inspector gave me the number of a plumber in Morris county NJ who can do the really tough part of the deal. I would try to do some of it where I could, but it would have to be the stuff that could wait. For the moment it is not practical for me to devote the time that is needed and that might mean we have to pass on the place. To tell the truth the math on this thing is sort of on the scary side. That is because you worry that it is going to cost a lot more than you think to fix the place up.
It happens in just about every event. Take the Olympics for example. They always bid that out and the city that wins promises to spend billions of dollars on the stuff that you need to put on the big show. It always ends up costing more money than any of the guys who bid the job said it was. In fact the research suggests that you are lucky if it has any positive impact on your city. That is because you lose about as many tourists as you gain and the ones you lose might be more valuable than the ones you get. Apparently people do not really spend as much money on it as they claim and the cost of building the stadiums and so forth is always way past what they predicted to start.
