    I voted buy. but…..

    My fiance and mine’s dream is to build own own home from scratch one day, on a nice chunk of land.

    However, I would like to build from scratch, not add to an exsisting building, I would rather just buy complete at that point. But it depends on how much the price diff would be to add vs to buy whole, ya know, and if you have the right land to even bother with it.

    It would depend on how long I was planning to live in the home, whether or not the neighborhood could handle it (ie-would I see a return on investment?), and if I had the yard space to do it. Is the bedroom for the unicorns? Or a giant safe to hold my millions of dollars?

    We always talk about designing and building our own house in the country. I think it would be lovely to own a nice big house on a big piece of property. Have a huge garden… a tree farm maybe and possibly some alpacas! But that is currently fantasy land…

    In reality I love living in the city. I grew up in the city and don’t know if I could live in the country. Thankfully I don’t have to worry about that since building a house is not an option right now!!

    I would probably build. If I had unlimited funds, I would hire an architect, design my dream house totally from scratch and then spend exorbitant amounts of money finding historic inlay wood floors, crown moldings, brick, pocket doors, fireplaces etc flown in from all over the world. It would be effin sweet.

    Oh, and I would plop my house right in the middle of the city. I am so not a country girl.

    Build!!! Unlimited funds, I’d defintely go and build my dream house, and of GOOD old workmanship and quaility materials.. not of the “crappy quick build, throw up a house as fast as you can with cheap material that just look good for max profit new house” quaility.  That is part of the reason I actually wanted an older house than a new construction.
