We decided to buy a house. First we didn't want to buy but with everything that was going on we came to the conclusion that it is the best option for us.
We live on a busy highway, have no fenced in yard, we only rent and I don't want to put money into a fence that we have to take down once we leave. Plus I can stay in Watertown once my husband has to go to his next duty-station and I can stay as long I have to, not having to worry if and when we find a new place with the dogs. To much happened in the past months and I don't want to put any of my dogs or us through that ever again.
First thing I told our Realtor was "No pre-manufactured homes, no double or single wides, three to four rooms, finished basement, garage and I won't even look at places that don't come with a fenced in yard."
I had already looked online and this place was one of them I put on the list and it was the first one she took me to look at. I fell in love with it from the minute I walked into the house. It even comes with two yards. A huge fenced in front yard and a privacy fenced in backyard.
Yesterday the Home Inspector, inspected it and except for some very minor cosmetic things that can easily be fixed with a little paint, it's in a really good condition and we can go on to close the deal.Those are just a couple of pictures and it'll give you an idea what it looks like. I love the colors, that it is bright, not to big, not to small. Just right for a childless couple with a bunch of dogs :)
What I took into consideration is that we might sell or rent it out so I wanted it to be in a quiet neighborhood yet close to the school & hospital. There is a bank close by, hardwarestore, a small mall with a supermarket and bank as well as our Vet in walking distance, yet it's on a dead end road and super quiet. You walk five minutes and you are in the country.
