too good to be true

As some of you may know, we are considering living on our own and so we are always at a look out for potential house and lot and/or rent-to-own townhouse, condominium unit or apartment. If we could afford it, we really wanted a house and lot, but living in a townhouse or an apartment is still a viable option for us.

I was handed a brochure of a townhouse for sale while we were in the mall. I took a look at it and the location is right for us. The pictures in the brochure showed three different sizes and models to choose from. Since hubby and I were not in a hurry to go home, we decided to take a look at it. When we arrived at the exact location, my jaw dropped since it is totally different from what we saw on the brochure. The building looks old and could really use the services of a Houston pest control because I saw some rodents from one of the units. There was not enough parking space and one of the units doesn't have enough windows for ventilation.

I had a feeling that the brochure looked too good to be true, but still we had to see it for ourselves. It was totally a waste of time. Nevertheless, we are still hopeful that we could find the house or apartment for us that would fit our requirements and most importantly our budget. ; )
