I once again am a homeowner---signed the papers yesterday.
AND in addition---I am going to be a landlord.
Planning for my "Old Age"--whenever that happens (NO I DO NOT WANT TO KNOW THAT I AM ALREADY OLD!) Property Taxes in the GREAT state of Texas are HIGH--so in an effort to plan for the future--I bought a home with a garage apartment. THIS should make for great blogging material in the future---HOPEFULLY not as exciting as living by the university! This time-
I MAKE THE RULES!
With the clear understanding that I have to take care of this home by myself, I purposefully bought a very small house. Just enough room for me---BUT never fear---have a plan for when you come to visit!
The house will soon be 100 years old---but has been remodeled---in an old established area of FW--close to downtown...Very close to the interstate--so when the kids move to the burbs--it is a straight shot. Hopefully I thought of all the important considerations! Here is a glimpse of the hacienda---painting--and a few projects to complete before moving-----
PRAYING this is my last move after 3 in 3 years! The long term plan is this is great investment property if I am gone or in the NH.
Gold Paint WILL GO With Warmer Weather!
SO here I am in FW--a property owner---still trying to make this home--still struggling at times--It was a bittersweet moment as I signed those papers---very mixed emotions but He is pulling me closer--showing me--teaching me---LOVING me---I am SO thankful and blessed!
