Well, I've been thinking about getting a rental property lately. In my mind, I could rent out the house we live in now, get a new place closer to my family to move into, and if I ever change my mind I can just switch back. Since I'm getting closer to 30 a lot has been going through my mind. I might have kids one day, but that would mean I'd have to have the master bedroom on the same floor as the nursery/kid's room, which is not possible in my house now. I'd also have to find a better paying job, and I don't know how much money a rental property would bring in. HGTV tells me one thing and my mom tells me another.
Unfortunately I found a house that just blew the others out of the water (in my opinion) but there is now a sale pending. Boooooo. Here, take a look at why I love this house.
Wow, right? It has over 10 of my "house wishlist" items. Second floor deck for potted plants, mainly white exterior, two large bathrooms, two stall garage, three bedrooms, built before 1940, hardwood floors, a brick wall, a large yard, a nice dining room and family room, tile in the entryway (that I actually like), etc... Oh well, I'm sure I'll find another one. There are a few more I'm looking at, and I think one or two are in Historic Districts ( a plus) and one other house has a two and a half car garage, two second floor decks, and french doors. Yesssss.
