So this last week Sean & I have been learning the ins and outs of buying a house. We even put a offer on one. But the owners wouldn't come down any on their price so we passed on it. It was literally straight across the street from a elementary and the island market and it has a stream in the back yard, huge back yard with lots of tree! But the house is over 100yrs old and is tiny. Altough it did have new siding, roof, windows & newer plumbing and electric. We thought about buying and adding on. But we talked to a contractor who said we could but with resale would would just brake even not get any equity.
Needless to say we have learned a lot.
