Our dream land just down the road (we are 406 and its 449!) Just got foreclosed and is going to auction at the end of this month! 4 bed 2 bath 16.7 acres with 6 being a pond! We had planned on selling our house within the next 1-2 years when renovations were complete. But now this is just too good an opportunity to pass up! My parents will be giving us the money they would have spent on the wedding :)! And I can take out a home equity loan so my Fi can qualify on his own!
I am beyond excited! And we are in a mad dash to get this house finished ASAP! My realtor is coming over this week to hopefully get our current house listed by next week!
We will only be out $250 at the venue. And the photog if we rebook her we wont loose anything. And we can have the reception next summer at the new house!

Well, it sucks that you have to postpone the wedding, but I think you’re making a way better choice! That house will be with you for a much longer time than the wedding, and waiting a few more months isn’t a huge deal. Congrats on the new place, it sounds amazing!

So are you trying to do all the reno’s now? Won’t that put you in a bad cash situation to buy this new place? Good luck with it!

We will still be getting married on Nov 5th in the Bahamas. Its been paid for already. I work 2 jobs so i can go shopping ALOT so we will be using that money for renos. And I dont have any debt besides the house.
The current house is in my name only. We only had 1 room left to COMPLETELY demo. We started Fri night & got all the drywall re hung by last night. A few rooms just need floors redone. 1 room we already got the flooring just needs to be put in.
We have done pretty much all the work so far and my FI’s dad is a contractor and my dad built his own house so if we get into something we cant handle we have help
