Carrie12345 Posted September 12, 2012 Share Posted September 12, 2012 I'm just playing through scenarios in my head. Given the choice, would you A.) Buy the "eventually perfect house" that needs a ton of cosmetic work, but is priced accordingly. It will likely take you a few years to make it meet your dreams, but the mortgage would be paid off very quickly. (Let's say less than 10 years.) or B.) Buy the "fits your needs just fine" house which needs zero work. There's nothing BAD about it, but you'll probably find yourself wishing there was one extra room, or that the kitchen was different, or that the property layout was better. Because it's in tip top shape, you'd be looking at a 15 or 20 year mortgage. Just working through my dream hypothetical situations. :) ETA: Assume adequate hs room in both houses!
