Just wanted to pop in with a quick update. I haven’t posted anything all month – and it’s definitely not due to a lack of financial or personal activity. In fact quite the opposite. In the last couple of weeks we were able to sell our house and buy our new home. I’ve been trying to get everything sorted and ready for the move.
I get possession of this beauty on September 10th!
Needless to say we are extremely excited. We are moving out of our 780 square foot house into a much more spacious home – where the kids will get their own rooms, have a nice backyard to play in, and in an area we both love. We looked at probably 30-40 houses, and this was the first one that both the wife and I loved. It was in an area we both wanted to live in & checked off multiple boxes (wet bar, master ensuite, close to family/schools/parks, big fenced back yard, move in ready, etc).
The downside obviously is that I will no longer be mortgage free before I’m 40 (barring any sort of miracles or lottery winnings) and our monthly expenses are going to increase quite a bit.
We’ve also decided to sell our cabin (probably this summer) and I’ve decided that once we are settled from the move I am going to change up my investment plan/style. (More on that coming in next blog post).
Enjoy the rest of the summer! I’ll be back in September.
