I'm officially a homeowner. The wife and I have been looking to actually buy for the last few years, however, nothing tickled her fancy. We thought property and build, but her back had other plans(disabled vet). Last month, a house hit the market that we liked, and below average price for the area. Granted it's not our rural dream spread, however it checked all the boxes. The house is actually classed as "rural suburb" due to the location. So, we closed on Thursday, and started moving the small stuff today. When we are settled in, I will actually have a garage and a man cave.
