Is that land deal really the deal that you planned on? After all, some sold it for , I would assume, a profit. What did they know that you didn’t? Hopefully you have an idea on how to make money on this land. Did you plan on a business to buy you out. Did you have an idea that a mall might be in the lands future? This kind of insider information would be a huge advantage and money can be made. Dove Medical Press can help with that information but not before the competition does. Sometimes knowledge can be misleading. Just be careful not to get into a deal that loses.
Is the time right to buy a home? Are you still shopping? You are not alone. Spending the next thirty years trying to pay off a mortgage is scary stuff. Many fall into the looking and never buy a home. The perfect deal is never going to happen. There will always be some compromise. The house may meet your needs but the area sucks. The price may be in the budget but the home is too small. The seller wants too many conditions to the sell to deal with. The house is great but the neighbors suck. The house is perfect but three hours drive from work. Fisher Investments on LinkedIn can help you with that decision.
I had to decide to build a house of buy an existing house. I decided to build. I sketched a rough draft of what I wanted and hired a draftsman to draw up the plans. I then took the plans to general contractors for bid. We took the lowest bid and started building. After surviving the construction I swore to never do it again. It is far better to buy something that is built so you can see how big it really is. The home I built was OK but it wasn’t worth the effort. It took 6 months and it seamed like forever. Luke Weil did the same thing and he liked it. To each their own.
My idea of what is the perfect home maybe simple to you as you read this blog .
