I am new to blogging so I thought I would just jump right in…
So, my hubby and I are buying the condo we live in from my in laws. I have lived here for six years (my hubby, eleven) and throughout the entire time I have lived here we have had one or more unfinished projects going on (with the blessing of my in laws).
- Crown molding originally intended to hide speaker wire for surround sound….four years.
- New tile for the fireplace hearth because the old stuff was chipped and just plain ugly…. three years.
- Parquet flooring throughout, we kind of piddled out in our bedroom cause they don’t sell the stuff in the same finish anymore, project started before I moved in….six plus years.
Needless to say that has not stopped us from plunging in to the wonderful world of home ownership. I will admit, it is freaking us out just a tad. Despite friends dire warnings not to engage in financial dealings with family members we are bravely moving forward armed with our wonderful mortgage broker and real estate agent. My in laws are after all giving us a deal. I wouldn’t say it was a windfall (neither would they) but a nudge. Ahhh, the tax bennies……
