More House Shopping

Eww, am I looking at houses again? Ha, yes I am! There’s a house not far from me right now going for an affordable price (if I sold me trailer) with a full basement suite. It’s within walking distance of grocery stores and work, so that’s hype. And the back yard is perfect for Midna to have space to run and be the cute puppy she is. It’s been awhile since I looked at houses that are for sale, and this listing makes me want to sell my place.

Living in the Okanagan is expensive; the fact that an “affordable” house is just over half a million dollars is bizarre. Granted, this place has a full legal suite to help with the mortgage, but still. I know I complain about moving a lot, but I want to do it. My fear of change doesn’t help with moving either. (Remind me to make a Category for “Moving” so everyone can find these easier…)

There are still a couple of major things I have to fix in my place before I can sell. My kitchen floor is starting to sink and my deck needs some TLC. In reality, to make my place look nicer (and more expensive) I should replace the cabinets in the kitchen as well as the floor. And the deck could use new screen or a massive window installation. I’m tired of doing renovations and think I’m just going to pay people from here on out. I just don’t have the energy anymore, nor the patience.

The east coast is in the middle of a weird plateau with the housing market. Right now in Eastern Canada, mortgages are going up a tad, and home building as a whole has started decreasing. I live on the west coast so that doesn’t affect me, but that doesn’t mean we won’t follow. It’s a good time to buy right now, so I should consider doing that. For this very moment though, I should call around and ask some questions about everything I can. Already made some calls about new doors on the trailer, so we’ll see.

But yeah, I’m looking at buying and selling again. Hopefully I can actually make a decision because I really feel like I’m ready to make the change. Anyway, that’s all I have for today. Be safe out there and we’ll talk soon!
