So my wife & I have been house-hunting. Last night we made an offer on a townhome in a nearby suburb and today the seller counter-offered and we accepted their counter-offer. We close on September 1st!
It will be so nice to know my monthly payments are going towards a mortgage, a home-- an investment instead of into the bank account of the ownership group that owns my apartment complex and pads the coffers of people who probably have multi-million dollar mansions in Oak Brook or Hinsdale and vacation homes in Arizona and/or Florida.
The new home:
2 car garage
All appliances (oven, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, washer, and dryer) stay
The laundry machines are on the 2nd floor with the bedrooms which is bonus! No lugging laundry up and down stairs. No having to scrounge for quarters any more. We are stoked!
