Checks all the right boxes;

  • 2 car garage
  • Turn of the century styling (built in 1900)
  • 10ft ceilings
  • Tall garage
  • Decent land
  • Large unfinished walk up attic (tax reasons)
  • Wide garage
  • Close to our jobs
  • Very affordable property taxes
  • Deep garage
  • All appliances included
  • Unfinished basement (tax reasons)
  • Massive garage
  • Nice driveway
  • Land for a decent vegetable garden with a shed
  • Loft above the massive garage (future man cave)

We’re going to look at it Sunday, along with a few other options (though we really want this one). It is more than double the price of house we were originally in contract for, but this is the forever home. The other one we only saw as temporary, 4-5 years at best; it was small with almost no property.

We figure interest rates are only going to go back up, so when the time came to move to something bigger we could expect to pay a few points more. I rather make the sacrifice now, while we’re young with no kids.

Fingers crossed.
