I live on a pretty cool island. We love the views and the isolation of it.
But, my house isn't ..... updated? nice? Actually, sometimes it's embarrassing.
ANNNNND we're pretty far out. I don't drive. Something about blind deaf person being a hazard I dunno, some lame a$$ reason, but
we're 30 minutes to a store
an hour from any docs
an hour from 1 daughter
an hour and a half from another
My wants? I want to live with this gorgeous view closer to them, in a nice turnkey house. My husband just can't remodel anymore and I hate living in a house where a closet door doesn't even have handles!! The bathroom unfinished, floors bubbling...ugh!
Here are some future options....what would YOU do/think?
one: buy a lot on the water here and build a new house in same area.
pros: still in my area, views, we love it, new house, I can probably afford it.
cons: still far from daughters/town/docs
two: move closer to girls
pros: in town, deliveries!, cable tv!, I can probably bus or uber places, closer to girls/granddaughter
cons: ugh, it's so expensive for gut jobs and just "dirty" everywhere. We could get a nice 55plus home, but I dunno....
three: stay where we are and just fix up the place
pros: we do like the area
cons: hubs can't work on anything, price, still far from girls,
four: ideas you may have?
It's nothing that will be done tomorrow. Just in the next five years. But, it's swirling in my head "what do I do? what do I do?"
so, I thought I'd get some fresh eyes on the situation.
