Gerry and Nancy had a desire to take on a rehab project if they could find something with a little land that could be made into a fantastic home…perhaps a foreclosure or abandoned farmhouse? They started the hunt together with plenty of options for distressed properties, but nothing with just the right setting got them excited until the little cabin on 2 acres north of Zionsville popped into Jennifer’s email. She was familiar with it, as she’d seen it before it went through foreclosure, but now that the bank had repossessed it, there had been a significant price reduction. She knew it was dirty, but that it could be rehabbed to sparkle and that it’s creek-side location was just exactly what they’d been seeking. On July 4th, they submitted an offer, which the bank rejected. So they waited a bit, and when that same bank reduced the price again two months later to below that initial offer, they pounced for an even better deal! The ride to the closing table wasn’t easy with that short-sighted bank, but Jennifer got them through it and closed at the end of October. Rehab is under way, and it will be a stunning home AND setting when it’s finished, and Jennifer can’t wait to see it!
