I'm kinda in a state of not knowing what to do. There is a house for sale here in town that is a foreclosure, it is 7 years old, 500 square feet bigger than the Shack, but still 2 bedrooms. It has a 2 car attached garage as well as a screened porch on the back and a huge front porch (my favorite thing is to read a book on the porch swing at my parent's house). The house is priced CHEAP. I know who the owners were, and they took good care of it. I'm trying to decide if I want to pack up everything and move to a new house. The downsides are that I don't care for one of the neighbors, the lot is smaller than I have now (I love a big yard), and it has electric baseboard heat (I would have to upgrade to a gas furnace). However, the house is priced at least 50% less than it should be so that they can get it sold. Ack! What to do? I love the Shack and the neighborhood that it is in. I don't like that I keep sinking money into it. I have put new windows, insulation, roofing, shutters and some new flooring in it over the past 6 years. Every time that I think I'm good for a while, something else pops up (thankfully they are minor things anymore). Still, the draw of a house that is almost new and would allow me to get money back after the sale of the Shack is pulling me towards a move... Gonna have to make a decision soon! Thanks for putting up with my rambling while I try to work through my thoughts!
