House Hunting continues.....

UPDATE: We still do not have a house....(trying not to cry)
Last Friday we went to 8 houses. The second house we saw was this one
Cute house...bad front yard, I know...but cute house
The inside had been newly renovated and was super nice. The best part was 2 walk in closets in the master....which we need! This house also had a small "mud room" at the side door which Wesley could use as his office  AAAAND a Laundry Room! I mean a room a real room just for the dirty clothes. (this is something we haven't seen much of, in case you can't tell) There was also a second living room at the back of the house, which Wesley already named his "man room". 
Here is the beautiful updated kitchen
Soooooo why isnt this house ours? Well the asking price was a bit high for the area so we went into a bidding war for 6 days and just couldn't seem to meet eye to eye on a price.
Here is one HUGE reason we weren't willing to go any higher on our end....
This is the backyard...or lack thereof! We had some landscapers come out to give estimates of how much it would be to make this backyard...well...a backyard and it looks to be somewhere around $15,000. With that info we knew we didn't want to pay too much for the cute house with a bad backyard. So we are letting it go. SAD! 
Just for fun I pulled what the house looked like in February before undergoing the renovations
and here is the kitchen
YUCK!
They got the house as a Foreclosure and paid NOTHING! They did put a lot of hard work into making this house what it is today, just not as much as they are asking.
Back to the drawing board...
