I’ll change my thoughts.
My husband and I did extra analysis and determined constructing a home wasn’t the best choice for us. The most important components:
1) We don’t know native subcontractors. In San Diego, my husband had an excellent group of dependable subs he might use. In Fort Value, we don’t know anybody. We haven’t constructed these vital relationships but and that would lead to large delays, unhealthy workmanship, larger prices… or all three.
2) The provision chain is a multitude. Supplies for a rehab might be onerous to search out. Supplies for a whole construct could be more durable.
The place can we go from right here? We bounced the thought of shopping for in an higher middle-class neighborhood. Our mortgage could be $100K-$200K. We might simply pay it off in 15 years. We DESERVE a pleasant home. We’ve had 6 individuals in 1,200 sq ft. We owe it to ourselves to lastly have a house we may be pleased with, proper?
We began driving round. We found nice little pockets of homes. Pleasant neighbors waving as we drove by. Our home in San Diego wasn’t good, however I beloved it anyway. We want yet another bed room. That’s it.
So we’re in search of a home we will pay money for. Positive, it’s not going to be as good as I imagined. I received’t have my dream kitchen (but) however will probably be OURS. Our purpose is to be utterly debt free…home and all. Sure, someday I’ll get the home I deserve…after I can afford it.
BTW – Sorry for all of the housing posts. It’s been such a rollercoaster of choices and at all times high of thoughts.
