Been looking for a few years now for a property to buy, one that will suit the needs of both my little business and our personal lives. Trying to find a place with a climate-controlled shop and a lot of storage space for my inventory, and a one-story house that will suffice as we age. And be close to the village we live in now. Had our eye on a place a couple miles outside of town but it was always priced out of our budget. Got taken of the market for a bit and now it's relisted with a lower price, at the upper end of our budget. A bit worried about the price though it ticks nearly all of the boxes on the must-have list. House is much too big but the shop space appears to be just about perfect.
Going to take a look at it this morning. Crossing fingers...
You only live once so go and buy it.
Yeah, I dunno. Took a look. The shop space would do the trick, no problem. The house is pretty dated and really big for 2 people. I mean, REALLY big, something like 4,000sf / 372 m2. 1.7 acres of really nice land with some great views. But dang, we'd have to put a lot of money into the house itself to bring it halfway up-to-date, just on the mechanical stuff. I have a feeling it'll be on the market for a while longer yet - even with the big price drop - so there's no hurry. And if it sells soon, well, we'll find something else or build somewhere.
Edit: but it comes with a free cat, so that might sway us back into the Buyer category. : )
