Hopefully I can get it. B and I might be roommates soon if I can pull everything together. I went to a pre-new years party at a friend of a friends, and they happened to mention that their house is up for sale, but aren't in any hurry to sell because they want to build. Well he started showing me around and we started talking about it. Their asking price is 82.5k. Does ANYONE have a calculator that can do some compounding interest on payments for things like this? I'd like to see what payments will be estimated at. I know it'll be around 450-600. But I'm going to give a call to a couple mortgage companies with the MLS# of the house as well. Anyway, I drew a quick sketch of the place, nothing is to scale but here goes: The House: The entire lot: Pros: It's in New Haven, 5 minute commute to and from work. ++++ It's a 3 bedroom, technically two and a 'computer room' Closets gallore Spacious and fenced in backyard with a 3' deep fish pond. Single backyard tree Single car garage unattached. FIOS ready All appliances are < 2 years old. ++++ The house was stripped and redone 4 years ago by the previous to the current owners. 3-4 car driveway with side step for an extra car. The owners are in no hurry to sell, they're waiting to sell before moving and building their own house. attic entrance in the hallway Cons: Asking price of $82,500 dollars. Single bathroom. I still have four months on this lease. Not sure I want Matt to go with me... (my current roommate... I'm tired of him though) The house was built in the 50s, but as I said it was stripped and redone a few years back. It's like new. I need to find out the square footage on it. I'm excited. I think with a roommate splitting everything (except the mortgage) 50/50 it'll work out well.
