On September 3rd, I posted about buying a condo or renting an apartment and I was leaning towards renting again. The cost to buy was going to be more than renting and that was scary. I saw an apartment I loved so I was ready to sign on the dotted line. The next day I realized it would be a mistake to rent again. This really is the time to buy and there may not be another time where both prices and mortgage rates are low.
So I am taking the plunge. I am buying a 2 bedroom, 1 bath with garage condo. The unit is one of 4 in a building built in 1910. Yesterday I attended the home inspection and all is well. So it looks like I will have a new home soon. I am relying on all my faithful readers (all 3 of you) to help me with the decorating. The place is gorgeous and doesn't need any work but a guy owns it now and it's a little too masculine and modern for me. I prefer a French inspired look. Any help would be appreciated. For example, the kitchen is lovely. It has granite countertops and stainless steel appliances but it needs to be warmed up. A friend suggested using wrought iron and lace to make it more warm and "French".
Anyway, decorating is going to be fun. Soon Molly and I will have a new home and my new kitty Oscar will be joining us too. We'll start moving in the end of October.
