Finding a property has been our biggest hurdle so far. Because of the nature of this project, finding a flexible builder is key. We have recently met with a builder that we are strongly considering and a property that is available in the north end. However, a different property just became available to us and we are back to the drawing board, weighing pros and cons. Since we haven’t determined the future of the house, whether it will be one we live in or if it goes on the market, we have to consider the type of person we imagine would buy it. We picture the house being well suited for a young family, which means when considering the location, it needs to appeal to the average young family.
The property that became available is located just outside the city in a new development. It’s like living in the country but still within a short drive to the city. The properties are huge compared to those in the city. I’m talking football fields as backyards. It’s a nice and quiet area with beautiful housing already going up. It would be a retreat with wonderful views of the sunsets and prairie fields. I fell in love with the idea of having a spacious property, but I’m not sure if it’s the right one for this project. We’ll keep you posted!
Do you live out of town? Is a big property important to you? Does space outweigh convenience?
