Buy Now or Wait?
You may remember this post about the view from across the road ! It has not really improved if I’m honest but they are nice people. Our road does have problems. It is a busy thoroughfare mainly because it links two busier roads and can be used as a ‘rat run’ at times.
It is also not far from a small college for students doing a range of vocational courses such as hair dressing, carpentry and plumbing. This means that whenever a house goes on the market there is a good chance it will be used for student lets. I never understand why students don’t see the need to keep where they live comfortable and tidy! Unfortunately the result is that many of the houses look rather unkempt and uncared for. It also means that there is often no-where to park as many of the tenants have cars.
This has been happening for a number of years. Our house was originally owned by hubby and I moved in when we decided we were a pair. Somehow we were never in a situation to move when we first got together. I stopped working for a couple of years and if we could afford the mortgage, there were other bills to be paid and despite comparing home insurance, calculating rates of utilities and being creative with general household bills etc we ended up staying where we are.
There are times when I feel quite sad about not moving. I love my house inside. We have made lots of changes to it and it is our home but it is when I step outside the door that I get a bit depressed. That’s why I’m really pleased that my son and daughter-in-law have set out to get the home they want despite money being a bit tight. They have made the decision right at the beginning of married life and will build from here. I’m sure you’ll agree that this picture shows how happy they are with their decision!
