So my wife and I were out looking for a new place over the weekend. With the youngest gone and the oldest hopefully leaving soon, I was thinking of a small two bedroom fixer upper. Maybe a little cottage,
Then we happened to pass this house.
And my wife fell in love even before she saw the gorgeous interior. Now I'm a tightwad and my wife's a bit of a spendthrift, so you can imagine where this conversation went. The only problem for me is that my wife is somewhat right, it's a beautiful house in the perfect location, but there are so many better deals out there.
Then the cheapness kicks in, this house was purchased on April for 61,000, based on my estimates they probably put 50 to 70K into a total remodel but even if got it for 190K they would still be making 60K profit from me. I'm not sure I could live with myself if I let that happen.
And my wife is now calling and I bet she wants to talk about the house...sigh.
