The issue is there isn’t a land left within the metropolis, I don’t wish to reside far out within the nation, and the actual property market is sizzling, so shopping for a fixer is dear. So we simply sit in limbo questioning what to do. There’s additionally the query of the logistics of a reno/construct when it comes to financing and possibly having to maneuver till a rental whereas the home we’re renovating is full.
Since we love our location a lot, we now have a gathering with an architect to see what we might do to this home to actually make it our personal. A lot of the adjustments could be in our fundamental residing areas and bettering “the envelope” with new home windows and insulation (our fundamental flooring has zero insulation!) We must transfer out for some time although, so this could be main. And we wouldn’t begin till spring 2023 if we determine to maneuver ahead.
