There’s probably a reason it’s sitting on the market….a lot of places look great in photos. Not so great in real life.

I was you in October.  We bought the great property (couple acres, two houses!) even though we weren’t quite ready to move yet.  It’s bringing in 2.5x the mortgage in rental revenue, so we’re walking a each month with $600 earned after the mortgage and all bills are paid.  Tenants are paying our mortgage, AND we’re earning extra cash while I finish grad school.

Buy that sucker, sometimes the “too good to be true” was simply a great deal waiting for you to come along!

Go look at it; otherwise you run the risk of it becoming “the one that got away” in your mind. Some things are meant to be, you never know. 

And excuse me while I hate you a little bit for getting to live in an area where you can buy a house for under $200,000.

Go look. It’ll either be wrong, or you end up in a beautiful house. If you love it, then now is a great time to buy as interest rates are still historically low (though are starting to increase a little). If not, then no harm.

Go look at it!

when we were looking for homes, I found one on Zillow that looked perfect. Then we looked at it in person and it was easy to make the right decision. 

After you see it, you can decide if you truly want to stick to your timeline or if this house is worth giving that up. Also, there are lots of factors that will be outside your control in the home buying process. Someone else may also be looking at that perfect house on Zillow tonight!
