Buying a Second House

Posted by Peter at Tuesday, February 23, 2010 0 comments Links to this post
With the housing market crashing down and looking like it has bottomed out. Me and my wife have been thinking about maybe trying to buy a second house. No, we're not trying to bloat about it, but we came to a conclusion that we need a bigger house. Our current house is about 1600 square feet, 3 rooms and 1 bathroom. We have 6 dogs, 4 cats and a brand new baby, as you can tell it's a little cramped in here. We have been keeping an eye on the house prices here in Jacksonville and have seen some houses that are 2800 square feet selling for under $100,000.00! We bought ours for $150,000.00 darnit!! Our plan is to try to buy a bigger home and then rent out our current house until the economy gets better then sell it. I don't know how many of you out there have thought about this or have even done this, but I wanted to know what your thoughts were on this as I'm sure many people are thinking the same way, with low home prices and low interest rates.

Audrey turned One month!

I wanted to try to get this online on her exact one month birthday, but was not able to because we were in Tampa for the annual Sewing Expo. My wife loves to sew for her etsy shop, so because she had to go through all that pain to give birth to my first child, I thought I'd repay her by taking her to Sewing Expo. I believe we are even now. Anyways, I made a little pin thingy out of scrap pieces of fabric from my wife's supplies and we took pictures of Audrey in our hotel room.

I have to admit she seems to know the camera quite well and takes some very good shots. Needless to say seconds after the last shots were taking to threw up all over everything she is wearing.
