On our house.
And now I need some advice, because I don't know what to do....yes, I want house-relationship advice.
I've looked at houses for the fifth time in two years. All of the waiting (three months + another two before we close) made me wonder if House 225 was the right house for us. So I looked at more houses. And I might have thought one of them was pretty cute. It's not the kind of house I usually go for, but it surprised me. And I liked it.
So now, we are trying to make the big decision. Is it time to break-up with House 225? Are we just not meant to be together forever? Or is it just infatuation with the rebound?
I need help!
So here are the Pros...and the Cons.
-Big back yard
-Wood floors throughout
-$20,000 less than the Rebound
-Homey with a lot of character
-Lots of potential
-In need of a lot of remodeling & updating (electrical, plumbing, roof)
-The short sale process will take another two months
-The windows are single-paned and do not have any blinds
-40 years newer
-Better curb appeal
-Covered & uncovered patio
-Large kitchen and walk-in pantry
-A lot of closet space
- 300 extra square feet
-The location is farther away from campus & work, and isn't really convenient to anything else (aside from being 20 minutes closer to Atlanta)
- $20,000 more
-Carpet in bedrooms
So, advice? What do you think? Help!
