    HOUSE 1

    Seems to have more pros than cons

    House 1. It seems like house 2 may end up costing you some money for renovations and/or add ons later in the future, plus it is older and smaller at more of a cost.

    house #1 sounds more desirable and will be a better resale for you with 4 bedrooms.

    the only thing house #2 has over the 1st one is the yard.  a huge yard is nice only if you are going to use it 12 months of the year.  are you?  also, the bigger the yard, the more time it takes for yard work.

     

    good luck and pls keep us updated.

    Thats really tough; like you, i like older homes and a new home would be a deal breaker for me…

    I think it depends on which one FEELS like home to you. Does either speak to you more than the other? Can you see your furnishings in either? Can you visualize having family and friends over in one over the other? Both sound great!

    I’m like you, I prefer older homes as well. I think generally (at least in my area) they are built more solidly and have more character. Plus, they aren’t cookie cutter. 🙂

    When you said you liked older homes, I was thinking something from the 20’s to 50’s. House 2 was built in the 90’s… I’m not sure how that translate to the “older home” vibe. I personally hate developments, so I’d probably still go with House 2. From what I’ve seen, development houses are harder to sell because they’re all alike, so you’re literally competing with the same house in the same neighborhood when you want to sell. Plus the new homes built by the developers.

    They look very similar, but I think I like the look of house 2 better.

    I like house 2. 

    House 1 is not ideal for you or a future family (if you decide) House 2 is for families. Yard, etc…

    I’ve always loved Cape Cod styled homes, but the dormers upstairs can present challenges. I’d go for the larger home that is also newer.

    House one!  Better bathroom, less work, no neighbours (major bonus for me) on one side and a smaller yard is easier to landscape to look really good!  Big yard just equals lots of grass.  Boring, and too much mowing.
