The Hunt and the Headstone...
Ok, I have a confession to make: I've been hard at work trying to find a house in southern California. This is one tough and expensive market. In fact I've made an offer on a house and the counter offer came in at $100,000 MORE than asking! I want to know who has this kind of money?! What fantastic paying jobs do these people have??
I'm looking for a small old house with character that needs some love. I'm finding that that is a tall order around here especially with all the house flippers around here. You can't toss a cat around here without hitting a house that has "GRANITE COUNTER TOPS AND STAINLESS STEEL APPLIANCES." What is the attraction of this combination and why is it that EVERY kitchen that has been redone is redone this way? In my opinion it says nothing of the quality of the stone nor of the appliances.
On a side note: aren't gravestones made of granite?
