I am also writing to ask for advice. I want a new house. I am selfish and just sick of living in the town home lifestyle. So sick of having to invite Addi up or downstairs when I just need to pee (she has abandonment issues.) I want a big rambler with a garage (Ron wants a 3 car) I want a giant kitchen (why the poo did we buy a griddle, two blenders, a sandwich maker, and a George Forman when we have 3 cupboards!)
The problem is, we found an amazing house. AMAZING. Not so amazing price tag. Affordable...maybe. It would be something that would be so much more than we are paying. Which means that I would have to be MUCH better about not buying every little thing I wanted. Could we do it, I think. It is just the not knowing that is scary. This is the house...
Then there is this other house, still awesome, not quite as awesome but still pretty cool. Much more affordable but they want us to close in 30 days....we still have our house to sell.
So I am asking for advice, do you buy a house you can easily afford but want to go somewhere else in the future, or buy as much house as you can because you would never move again? What would you do?
