    I bought a house!

    God help me, but I finally did it. I know I'm a ways behind the curve, but I'll be honest, I loved the flexibility of renting. That said, when I look back and see that 67500 dollars went to my landlord over the last 5 years I realized it was time to do it. That, and my landlord is selling my house, so he told me to GTF out.

    Anyhoo, it's nothing special but it's a good first house purchase. I've already got new appliances on order and will renovate the kitchen over the next year. That should boost the value of the house in an event I have to sell it unexpectedly.

    Congrats and there is something special about it - it's YOURS!

    Now the work begins, because no matter how new or old a house is, there's never an end to things that need doing!

    What HE said. Until you reach the day that you realize that there's not enough time to reap a return on any investment, and the NEXT folks that own the house will have to "do that"!

    That looks great! What area?

    I'm too old to help you move... can I send my son?

    In the end, regrets rarely come from things done, but from things not even tried.
