Yes… It looks like my husband and I have to move. Where? Not sure. Because of my husband’s job, we have different options (within the State).
We might end up renting, but if we buy a house, I’m leaning toward either a Historic Home or a brand new home.
“Why?” you ask?
Well, the brand new house is new so we don’t have to
worry about fixing anything for about 10-15 yrs. The negative is the HOA.
(Home Owners Association)…which I hate…been there, done that kinda thing.
Then, about the historic homes… the pro is that it has a lot of character
and features that new homes don’t have and I really like that. The con
is that we’ll probably have to fix something… or some things.
So, I wanted to show you some of the ones that have made it to my “favorites” list…
We haven’t had a chance to go see these yet, so we don’t know what the
neighborhood around the home looks like… which is a big deal…
remember, “location, location, location”?
I like the porch on this one below… I’d make some changes and add some trim,
but overall it looks good
This one below is my favorite, I think.
This one needs a lot of work, but I can see it has so much potential!
This porch is my favorite, too.
This one may look a bit downcast, but, oh, the possibilities!
Okay, so this one looks REALLY bad, but because of that, the price is
really good. I just don’t know if we could do all the work required…
So….. what do you think??
Any pitfalls to avoid?
Have a terrific weekend!
