Man its fun and stressful looking for a house. So many shapes / sizes / lots to look through. Do we want a real nice house in a town on stamp sized land, or do we get one in the boonies with more property that maybe needs some work? Should we get something sub 100k and use the extra money to fix it or buy something for 140k and not have to worry about fixing it?
I’d love to have an acreage – doesn’t everyone?? How much is enough, 1 acre, 5 acres, 75 acres? And what about the resale value of the place, will it sell well if we decide to move in 10 years? All things we need to consider. We need a place where we can bring up our kids, where they can roam, where we can roam , it needs trees, a forest, and really, it kinda needs a stream or river of some kind. Our order is tall for sure but there is land out there for sale. We need to measure both of our wants, needs and what we can afford and it all adds up to a HUGE decision that we will need to make in the next month and a half basically.
This place will indeed be our castle, at least for a number of years if not many. Who knows what life holds! Its almost scary to really set your feet down like this and commit to a property.
