And with that, ZmanPLAN went crazy and is building a house to be completed in May.
The papers were signed yesterday and construction shall begin soon (weather permitting).
It's biggest drawback is that my commute ballooned to 20 miles instead of 4.
But with that, I am getting a new home with warranty, it is Built Green with energy efficent windows, furnace, and water heater that never runs out and last twice as long as typical water heaters. Also the air filters are hypoallergenic, and there is an air circulation system that heats/cools the house evenly.
3bd/2bth and because this was one of the last lots, a walkout basement and elevated deck and thrown in for free.
For about $2000 more we were able to get a new place with all the features described above rather than an older place for the same amount, were a couple thousand in updating is needed.
This is defiently a good place for resale, but by the sound of it, we may stay in there longer than a typical starter house would entail.
Pictures may be posted periodically (if anyone is interested), this is a very exciting time and I couldn't sleep last night.
