Adventures in Househunting - Day 1

Well, we looked at seven properties with our broker yesterday, and can't say any of them lit our fire, so to speak. We'll be back up there this weekend to have another go at it. Here's one of the properties we'll be looking at.

1870's Colonial - close to downtown. 4 bedrooms, 1.5 bath,
pine/hardwood flooring, high ceilings, built-in cabinets.
Attached barn with loft. Home sits on almost a half acre.

That works for me.

It's listed at about $70,000 to $90,000 less than some of the other houses we were looking at, with an approximate property tax assessment of $300 to $400 less per month, meaning our mortgage payment would be about the same as the monthly rent on a 2BR apartment in our current neighborhood.

yeah, I'm kinda liking that.
