Thursday Top Ten

Our Ten Reasons for Buying the Condo We Currently Rent:

1) We wouldn't have to move (and after having moved 9 times in our marriage - we really don't want to!)

2) The interest rates are low

3) We would qualify for the $8000 first-time homebuyer credit

4) My parents are giving us a great deal (and it would be beneficial for them as well)

5) We just painted it last summer

6) We have been married for almost 8 years and have 4 kids, and think it's a step we sort of missed ;)

7) We wouldn't have to change our address on EVERYTHING (That is so frustrating!)

8) We would have an investment and could take out a line of equity if we ever needed

9) For about $300 more per month, we could be owning instead of renting and getting all the tax benefits that brings.

10) We like our house :)

So the paperwork is being drawn up as we speak....I'll keep you posted!!
