marriedbeeexpecting:  We’re fortunate in that the previous owner gutted the house and updated everything so we haven’t had many issues so far. Our first major repair was the connector pipe that connects our house to the city water supply. It’s underground and we weren’t aware that it had been leaking until the water authority came knocking and told us they discovered it. So that was pretty expensive, but that was the only old pipe left in the place (because it was underground) and now that we’ve repaired it, our water pressure is amazing. We don’t have any other maintenance issues as of yet (knock on wood!).

bellanotte11:  I would keep looking, dont settle, this is your HOME! It took me about 6 months to find my house that we got, and while the master is smaller, its fine because the living space is good. We have a nice sized living room thats open and then a man cave which is a formal dining but we arent those people. Just keep looking, maybe move outside of where you want a little, thats what we did to find our home.

I’m kind of wondering where you live. That seems like a very large budget and you are not able to find what you like. 

 

Personally, the house we just bought has smaller spare rooms than I wold like, however everything else about the house is large and open. So, I just has to budge on that one.

I don’t have a house, but I have lived in a lot of apartments.  Our room in the last one we lived in was small.  We fit our queen bed in, but the foot of it was up against the dresser basically.  My bed was on the other side of it, and I had to shimmy past the dresser every morning and night.  The dresser drawers only opened up like half way.  So that got annoying quick.

Now, we live in a huge townhouse.  Every room is big.  We have a big open space in our room that I use to work out in sometimes, but other than that, it’s just wasted space.

I didn’t mind our other tiny apartment except for the dresser shimmying.  Actually, I’d prefer to live in a smaller place because it forces me to be organized and not hoard things.  Now, when I get more things, I just put them in some of the many open spaces.  I LOVE old houses, so I’ve come to terms with the fact that I’ll always live with pretty small rooms, and I’m okay with it.  

So, I think as long as furniture can reasonably fit into the room and allow for acceptable walking space, small isn’t bad.  It sounds like that’s not the case for some of the houses you’re looking at, but I wonder if a house with a different confuguration in a same-ish size space would make things work.  In our old apartment, if our closet was just on a different wall we would have been fine.

A manufactured home is not a mobile home. Manufactured homes are build off site, shipped in, and placed on a foundation. A mobile home has tires and no foundation and is taxed like a car.

These are all manufactured homes:

bellanotte11:   Ah, now it makes sense. Thank you for answering!  California prices are insane. I know for fun we looked at what we could get on our budget out there…dirt. we could buy a very small dirt lot. 

If that being the case, I would go manufacturered home. You have to feel safe where you live. I wouldn’t give up space in rooms and maybe the safety of my family. 

Do you have to move now, or do you still have looking time?

bellanotte11:  oh, I understand! That why I asked. I’m in Kansas. So here I am thinking I could live in one of the best areas of my state, in the best school district, and have more house then I ever imagined!  

Like I said, we just bought a house. Is in, closed on Monday. We drove by the house at all hours of the day. We searched crime rates, we didnt want to live anywhere there was a bunch of crime. If there were drug deals going on and that was normal? HELL NO! Keep calm and keep looking. I would start with knowing you might have to put 20% down for the house. Pintrest really had a lot of great resources for first buying.
