    I love the northwest, affordable housing is awesome. My offer was just accepted and should close very end of July.

    I wanted a place with a shop since I was a wee lad.

    nice! cant beat owning your own chunk of land.

    Side note, the more I see how proporty taxes are in other county/states the more ****ed I get at my local guberment.

    yeah they are 1.4% here however the homeowner exemption takes up to 75K off the taxable amount so my taxes will be 1.4% of around 150K

    I havent owned a home since 06, looking forward to it very much.

    That's an awesome pad you found yourself there. I wish homes were that cheap on the east coast.

    Looks like you're in good shape if you ever want a motor home!

    no and I really dont want it, I dont think I would use it much. I do have some concerns on the appraisal , I have heard a few places have appraised for well under contract price. If this happens I am pretty sure the seller wont budge on price and I wont pay over appraisal.

    Cool beans. It's nice having a place to wrench out of the sun/rain/dirt.

    Thats pretty much what my oldest daughter said, " I assume there is a house to go along with the shop?"

    did all the loan paperwork, taxes are only 1450 a year, even less than I was thinking!

    [​IMG]
    door is 16 x 12 shop has 200 amp 220 already, you know for all my welders.....

    Shop is 28x30, not the size I would have liked but better than any I have had thus far in my life.

    House is pretty decent too.
    3x2 1689 sqft nothing fancy but will suit Jordan (50% of the time) and myself just fine

    Man, my taxes are $5K+ in South Florida. I need to move out in the mid-West. It's getting old here. Congrats, great find.

    Love it! Wish they had affordable stuff like that where I live. My taxes are in the $3500 range and thats EXTREMELY CHEAP for New Jersey, especially the Jersey Shore where I am located. Good luck on the new crib, loving the shop!

    Cool :)

    I wish my house had an open floor plan like that. I like it okay, but open plans feel so much bigger.
