I'm sorry your daughter couldn't find anything affordable. That's a tough market for sure. $200K is pretty pricey for such a small amount of space.My daughter has given up looking for now and signed a lease to rent a house for a year. After the last house she put an offer on said they wouldn't take offers with FHA loans for at least a few months if the house wasn't sold by then, she decided to wait. It's a seller's market here anyway, and the houses are way over priced...$200,000+ for less than 900 sqft in a rural area.
We do closing on Wednesday.
I think that house is gorgeous! My house is probably about 1/10 of the size, lol.
Roper! You win! That's exactly the ones they recommended as best overall value, with fewest repairs. It was a home improvement site.I have a Roper washer which is an inexpensive brand. It is several years old now and seems to be holding up well. Our dryer is a Maytag which we got used several years ago, probably 10, and I don't know how old it is. The belt for the drum we have replaced twice and the latch on the door fell off but that was an easy fix. I even changed the electric cord on it to fit the apartment's outlet. I think Maytag appliances last a good long time!
Best of luck with the hunt, raggle, and keep us posted.We're looking into the part rent part buy scheme in order to get on the property ladder. At least then you don't need such a ridiculous deposit.
Sucks to be living in the most expensive, unaffordable part of the UK!
But this is where we've grown up, our jobs are & we don't want to move away at the moment.
This is awesome! Congratulations!So ... we just bought a house
My wife and I decided to start looking for a house of our own in Hannover, where we live now, instead of continuing to live in our nice rented apartment a few weeks ago, but last Friday we saw one that is really nice, in a good location, that is also offered at a really good price, so we decided it was too good an offer to pass up.
So we called our bank to check for a financing where we pay about the same amount we now pay as rent, and today signed the contract
