Kristy and I checked out another house yesterday, also in the Virgina area. It was beautifully renovated brick house, with quality paint, downlights throughout, a cool deck, brilliant kitchen, and a really solid fence. The only problems that we saw:
- Small pantry – Personally not a problem because I shop every day (sorry Nelly), but I’m sure that will change when Kristy is running the shop
- No outdoor storage – you’d have to add in a shed
- Fence isn’t dog friendly – but not too many mods required to fix this one up
- It’s a little small – besides the bedrooms, the whole place was probably a little smaller than my current house
Basically, what it comes down to is size & space versus position. As an example, we’ve also been looking at a place at Boondall. It’s $10k cheaper, is a much bigger house, and is built on a much bigger lot. However, it’s another 8 – 12 minutes out of the city by car, and at least another 10 minutes out by train (guessing).
So readers, when it comes to real estate, what’s more important – size, or position? Please, let me know!
