Missed Opportunity for House

This just went up for sale not too far from where we recently bought a house. Gosh, had I known this was coming onto the market... lol

    I have a telescope that I bought off of WOOT years ago. Would that work in the observatory ?
    Offer them $140 mill and see what they say.

    They would probably say "Show me the money!" Then what would I do? :)

    20% down, 30 year fixed mortgage at 3.96%, just a hair under $739,000 monthly payment on the mortgage. PFFFFT!

    But hey, there's no HOA fees!!!

    Pull 6,900 acres from the asking price and then tell me how much the house is worth...

    Mark - I'm already jealous of your move!

    Let me see what I can get for a kidney and a kid or two (who do about 25% of their chores) and then we'll talk! :p

    Sounds like a plan! You know, Al, if we do manage to pull this off, we are going to want to keep some money in reserve for upgrades! :)

    That HT room is dreadful.

    I think I might be able to learn to live with it :D

    You know, this would make for a very nice kharma. Just sayin'.

    Where's Russ when you need his negotiation skills. He could talk them down to three aged Big Mac wrappers and a pinch of bellybutton lint. Two pinches is fair if they counter, but play it close.

    Pfffft....6900 acres... you could build a subdivision on the fringe and the owners wouldn't know about it for years.
    But I'll dust off my negotiating skill set and get back to you with an offer, Scott.

    Translation: I'll kick back on the couch and eat a buncha crackers with no shirt on.

    The realtor is going to make almost 4.5 million on the sale.
