Call Me Crazy

10 Dec

I came across another dream house online yesterday, and I can’t stop thinking about it! It’s located in Merida.

Ya’ll are gonna think I’m insane, but here are some photos:

If I had money, here’s what I would do:

1. Put in a down payment on the house

2. While saving money to renovate, I’d rent the house out as a site for filming horror movies, because DANG it’s creepy right now

3. Renovate it for a relatively small cost because everything in Merida is cheap (I’m thinking beam ceilings, traditional colorful tiles on all floors, and maybe opening up a few doorways)

4. Move in, or sell it for profit because it has potential to be GORGEOUS. Look at that 2-story room! Beautiful.

It only costs $45,000 US.

*sigh* Someday.

    I find houses that I want to renovate all the time! So I don’t think you’re crazy!

    I think it would be soooo fun to renovate this one in particular! I can understand the attraction!

      I love the peeling walls! You could also market it as a movie set for tortured artists.

    Would love to do that here in Veracruz, but property is very expensive. Remains a mystery to me why Merida is so cheap.

    It is definitely what you would call a “fixer-upper” 🙂 Good idea about renting it out.

    Wow .. the possibilities! and 45,000 US is cheap, all the money would go in the renovation.

    I’m not going to call you crazy, because I can see the possibilities, but you are 100% correct. there would be some fantastic horror movies made in that house. It really is creepy.

    I just loooove Merida, and this is one of the reasons!!

    No you are not crazy at all!!! I am constantly trying to convince Hubby to move to Merida, and renovate one of theses homes near their Zocalo!!! Actually, last time we were there he did make a few phone calls 🙂

    One day amiga, one day 🙂

    It will be cool to see before and after pics of this house. Well, we already know what it looks like now. I wonder if someone bought it and redecorated.
