The old house is paid off, 2 small bed rooms and 1 I would call normal, a small full bathroom and a real small bathroom with shower, on a half acre and on the edge of the city. It could work. Would be perfect to ride out another 2008 economic down turn or marginally worse since it's paid off and the taxes are less than $300 (yes three hundred) per year and I can continue to hoard money and buy gold and silver. Worse thing about it is it has easy access to a major road, makes it easy for crack heads to steal stuff. I want to keep it and rent it out since it's only worth 20,000 to 25,000. And as a economic shtf fall back. The new place is a pocket listing, belongs to a friend of ours. We may have up to a year to get it. So no rush. The worse thing about it by far is it's cost is $180,000, it supposed needs a lot of work and I haven't seen it yet. I just hate the idea of owing the bank that much money again. But it seems has everything going for it other wise. A big house 4 bed rooms, 2 full bathrooms, on 20 acres, has a well, it's out of town, might be able to shoot guns. It's just me an my wife at the moment and it looks like our family will be growing here soon and that size is perfect for the proposed expansion. If it doesn't need a tremendous amount of work and its as far out of town as i think it is I am probably going to get it. What do you think?
