Moving- Need advice
Holla Ladies! I'm needing some words of wisdom from ya. I'm thinking of buying my mom's house... She is going to start moving into her B/F's house this weekend and will be putting the house up for sale after she gets her stuff out. I put in an offer to her which is WAY lower than she would have sold it for and she is thinking about it. Problem is... do I really want it? This house is much bigger than mine, in a great neighbor hood... we moved there when I was 3. This house has many things that I want in a house BUT its REALLY outdated. I mean its been forever since my parents did any upgrading to the house. It needs new carpet, windows, cabinets, paint, roof, water heater.. you name it & it needs it. I'm very happy w/my house right now. We remodeled it to our liking and its perfect for us but its small and on a not so nice street. Most of our neighbors could give two shits about how their house looks & it drives me bananas. I'm so torn w/what I want to do. We are thinking of putting our house on the market and seeing what happens and if it sells we buy my moms and if not we don't. Its that simple right? I guess I'm afraid that we will buy it and I will wish I still had my current house. I know that if we do buy my moms and we remodel it I will love it but I'm just afraid. Plus I don't know what people will think. I mean, my dad died in that house. In my parents bed room that if we move into will be mine & Jake's bed room. This does not bother me but it may bug Jake somewhat. Ugh I donno. I know I'm rambling but I just have all kinds of thoughts going through my head. I know this would be a good investment for us as this house will be worth way more than our current house ever will be but geesh its a huge decision! Any thoughts?
