So we got this in our door last week...
Anyone who has rented knows that feeling of dread that comes along with this notice. Your left with that "oh crap what do I do feeling?" Either you sign your life over to your landlord for another year, rent somewhere else, or the scarier question..."Should we buy?"
I am all for the idea of not throwing my money away on rent, for have walls that don't carry the sound from the neighbors party into my bedroom at 3am, and for have a place to "build my nest" so to speak, but buying a scary big commitment (but really exciting at the same time!)
So I know I have some homeowners who read this blog and I was hoping you might be able to help all of us little renters out there with your wisdom on home buying. What would your advice be to renter who are looking to buy? How did you decide when to buy? How did you know when you walked into your house that it was the one? Did you buy a move-in ready house or one that needed some updating? If you are updating how is it going and are you happy with your decision?
Happy Monday and I look forward to reading each and every one of your comments!
