After the stock market crash yesterday and the nation in economic panic, I can't help but daydream about a simpler life. Sitting in a rocking chair on a wrap around porch during a rainstorm, watching lightening in the distance with a cup of hot chai tea, a warm wool blanket, the hubby at my side and Char at my feet.
Doesn't it just sound lovely? When daydream about this senerio, I daydream about this lovely house in the outskirts of Atlanta, Georgia. I was playing around on the internet (one of the things I do best) and found this beauty!
See the rest of this amazing home here, which is equipped with an in-law suite in the basement, a sunroom, and a recording studio (???)
The amazing part is: This home, over 3000+ sq feet, is offered at $260,000. In my town, $260,000 will buy you a run down 1970s 1 bedroom condo, if you are lucky. And while we are still daydreaming, we'd offer $250,000, owners would accept in this type economy (considering they already moved out), I'd put a 20% down payment and do a 5.60% 15-year fixed with monthly payment of $1712.00
I'd also replace all flooring downstairs with this beautiful laminate:
($1.16 a square foot)
And obviously re-paint. Oh yeah - and fill the home with four cute little kids: Three boys and one girl.
..........sigh......... A girl can dream, right?
