One of the reasons I didn't get to boat much this weekend is because we've been looking at houses. We already have a Havasu house, but now we are looking for either a) a retirement house with full-on motorhead-friendly garage space, or b) an investment property with near neutral cash flow, or c) whatever my wife and daughter decide (not my favorite choice).

Since there seems to be some small segment here that knows a few things, I thought I throw the hook out and see what we catch. We already have a great realtor that we are using, the same one that helped us find this house.

The house we have now will most likely become a rental. 3BR 2BA 2 car garage + 50' RV and side parking, 2005 Verde home, 1466 SF. The house itself is too small for us when the grandkids come, and we could only add one RV garage to the side.

The house we are looking for is on a quiet street (found a beauty on S. Kiowa - too noisy) with parking for a diesel pusher, 37' boat trailer, rock crawler, street Jeep, pickup, two cars, car trailer, and a garage full of tools. 2000 SF is big enough, but we could go larger. While I realize we'll probably drop a few of the vehicles when we retire in a few years, we have to plan for what we have or their replacements.

I figure that paint, carpets, drapes, tile, etc. can be changed a lot easier than lot footprint or house foundation. We don't want some of the classic come-ons like, "Half acre lot!" that is actually half wash, and we don't need any exquisite custom entertainment houses. View is nice, quiet mandatory.

If anyone knows of such a house, let me know. Thanks!

LOL, everybody knows a little about something, I'm just looking for the guy who knows a guy who is selling that unique house.


Baller? No, just a guy who takes chances, and often they come out well. I improve my gambling odds by never going to a casino, or buying lottery tickets (thus making the Laughlin/Bullhead option less attractive, but thank you)

Michelle and some partners built the house we now own on spec, but Janice Gould did well for us last time, and we'll use her again this time. Michelle might have the listing, though.

Loyalty goes a long way and Janice is a good lady.

Hey buy my house thats right next door to you:)
Is that yours? We looked at it last weekend, but we're still talking to ourselves on what we really want.

We've looked at a few places that have been on the market for a while, and we've figured they may not be easy to resell if needs be, so we are being very careful about what we buy in this market. The fact that we just lost our biggest client doesn't help the decision.
