Just like last year at this time I'm making a regular past time of scouring the Craigslist ads for Maine apartments. We still haven't decided if we'll stay in this place for a year and the decision will ultimately be made after Gabe secures a new job.

I found this ad today and of course it looks amazing and perfect but. I want to know what's wrong with the place. Because $750? For a house? With a washer and dryer included? I am not too familiar with Augusta but these are my theories so far:

1. It's morbidly haunted.
2. It was the scene of a horrific murder(s). See also: number 1.
3. There's a bug problem. A big one. Like, Arachnophobia big.
4. It's in a bad neighborhood where gunfire, knife fights, arson and break-ins are a regular occurence.
5. The Kennebec River floods it twice a year.

OK, I think it is haunted! It looks really nice inside! Oh and you are used to "haunted" so I don't think it will be 'that bad'. LOL LOL LOL !!! I think you will get along well with your fellow friendly ghosts! I think that they like artsy people and I think most ghosts would love having a baby around and they don't want to scare the baby. I really do believe this... you know that I do!

It does look really nice, with a very high gas bill in the winter ;) Let us know what you think of it!

WOW. I am even more in awe of it, since you can't rent anyplace where I live (just outside DC) that isn't crawling with bugs and in a war zone for less than $2000/month. That place you found? Looks AMAZING. I want to move up to Maine just to live in it. I hope you're scheduling an appt. to go look at it! I hope it turns out not haunted/buggy/etc.!

Ohhh, That is nice. For your sake I hope that nothing is wrong and it is just a old couple that lived their and they don't know any better :) There has been a lot of scams going on where either the house is in forclosure or random people are posting rental property on craigs list that they don't even own and then scaming people out of money. I hope that is not the case for you. Good luck!
