With four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a yard, she had thought the home was perfect for her two children and two dogs.
Preparing to buy it wasn’t easy.
“Lots and lots of saving and work and time,” the 42-year-old told KMGH-TV.
But her dream started to turn into a nightmare when Hall’s dog found a snake in the garage.
“I was trying to unpack, and my dog crouched down, and he started walking over here really slow,” Hall said.
“I came over to see what he was looking at, thinking it was like a spider or something, and there were two little holes right here and I saw snakes slither up the wall.
“So, I panicked.”
But that was only the start. They have since found 10 snakes in the home.
Likely there for years
A snake wrangler who was hired said a den is likely somewhere under the home – and the snakes have likely been there for at least two years.
“This is my first home,” Hall said.
“I’ve worked my whole life for it.
“And I can’t enjoy it. My kids can’t enjoy it. I’m scared to death.”
