Re: Ever Bought A Cheap House And Regretted It?
cheapest can pretty much boil down to 'fixer upper". Believe me I bought my house for 150,000$, which was a steal compared to three years before the asking price was in the 200's.The house is huge for only the two of us (and some animals) 2600sq. ft between the house and garage,...b u t it was a total 80's house , like the teen-age-mutant-ninja-turtles and Ferris bueller had a shoot-out and ALF was the csi detective 80's house...yea, but 8,000$ in renovations later ( paint, interior doors, outlets, tile,furniture,) and still only HALF of the house is done, it feels like it is starting to come together.
It is WAY more work then I have time for, and trying to squeeze in yard work( 1 acre) is insane when I am working 60+ hour weeks, just finished mowing the BACK yard, took me two days and literally a mountain of grass clippings, yes push mow twice! first on the 5" setting ...then going back and mowing on the 2" setting!....the garden I started months before is long overgrown and unkept( that was an 160$ "investment" down the drain).........(the 8000$ in renovations kept me from purchasing a riding lawnmower)
So if you buy a house do not settle for cheap, purchase something that will be worth your money, even if you have to bring yourself to paying a little more in mortage, because a house that is finished will save you TIME and MONEY... do not look at a house as an investment!
