1. Make a must haves' list
2. What upgrades are you willing to do
3. Size you can afford, not what you want!
4. Features you can live without
5. Shop around (the most important I think)
You see when we bought our first house in 2011 we were not really knowledged on what to do or what we wanted. We kind of just wanted to get out of a 1 bedroom apartment with a family of 4 and into something that fit us. We looked at maybe 5 used homes (sounds weird saying used) and 2 new homes... we settled on the newer home, with no backyard for the kids, a horrible school district which meant I had to homeschool them and no driveway.
3. Basement (finished or not, we can finish it on our own if needed with Dave Ramsey in our back pockets)
4. Open floor plan
5. Upgraded kitchen
6. 4 Bedrooms 2.5 Baths
7. No more than 2,400 sq ft without basement
We Can Do:
2. Finish basement
3. Build pool in backyard
We plan ahead and I feel like this go round buying a house will be so rewarding and not a drag. Starting this month we plan to look at homes, open houses are amazing, and take photos of what we like so if needing to upgrade later on we have the style we are looking for. So, here we go with a new journey! And I cannot wait to start showing off the house ideas we have found in new posts'. It is important for us to find the perfect home and we plan to go used!!! Crazy huh!?! Because I would never in a million years think buying a used home is okay; just how I grew up! But I actually look forward to walking into these homes and starting a new journey! So far all we have done is looked online, and got some ideas, but now it is time to take it to the next step and start walking the houses. We have a meeting Wednesday 02/15/2017 with our leader to see how that is all going, and what not.
Just a little video from our anniversary concert! 2017 is our year!!!
