flip-flop(s)


here she is! our LITTLE piece of paradise :) we finally agreed on a price (you gotta be tough with a flip!). we will close at the end of march if the inspections go well. the place has some good features on the inside, high ceilings, an open floorplan, a decent kitchen to start with...but it is the outside that makes it special. it sits right at the 18th hole and it is a simple walk to the club and to the ocean. the island is a gated equestrian community where you can use golf carts as your transportation! i am not sure i will want to give this baby up! but there is a lot of work to be done, bathrooms gutted and redone, kitchen cabinets replaced, some new lighting, some new flooring...but i look at it this way...i get to pack my hammer and my beach towel. not bad!

Since I'm new here, I don't understand this 'flip-flops'thing. Sounds like you have purchased {??} this place and will do it over. {??}

Whatever, I look forward to any pictures you care to share with us.
