It is going to be a pretty tough deal for me, but I have decided that I really do not want to rent any more and that is going to be the project that I am looking for. Of course you have to take stock of the resources that you have at your disposal and then you have to think about what it is going to cost you to live in the period after you get where you want to go. That is the really important thing obviously, because you want to make a decision that you are going to be happy with. You do not want to rush into anything and then turn around and see that you made the decision without thinking it through. The truth is that you have to consider all of the factors. For example I have figured out that having gas appliances and gas heating is going to be a big saving for me, so that is something that I really want to have available. It is not something that should be a problem for me.
At any rate we have the whole thing in front of us right now, we are looking at the sort of place that we need. Of course it is going to be necessary for us to start small. However you want to be sure that when you pay for the small place, it remains as valuable in the future as it is when you pay for it. The big thing is that you have to find a good location. That means that you have to get a place where the neighbors are not going to be shooting up the cul de sac. You want to avoid places where the crime rate is very high, that is going to kill the resale value.
