What should I offer on this home? Any tips?
We have no experience buying a house & was looking for some advice. What are things we should be looking at/for? What kind of an offer can I make?
The house we’re looking at it on leased land on a reservation, but because I’m a tribal member its two dollars for 50 years. its a three to four bed room, one bathroom, on the lake with 300 feet of frontage, has a fireplace with a loft overlooking it and a small garage, but its RIGHT next to the road. Like, we’d have a driveway that goes along the house and then the road. The asking price is “$ 79,000 (with big letters) negotiable” Its been for sale for about 8 years with the price dropping. (I attribute this to it only being available to Tribal members, which including the kids under 18 there are only about 2500 of us). Any thoughts? Or tips on buying a home you’ve never been in? My spouse is currently in the military and will be discharged and home within a year so unless I fly back to look, I’ll have to send a relative to look for me.
Leasing land on the reservation is much different than leasing land off reservation. So the question is not should I buy on leased land (that I own partly because I am a Tribal member and all the land is owned by all members collectively), the question is what should I offer.
