Found a house!
(Spring Grove, IL. )
We found a house that I like very much in SW Wisconsin near Viroqua. We are planning another trip this weekend to get inside and look at all the rooms and basement. I know I want to live in that area, just need to find a good school district and a job in LaCrosse.
But is there a method to help with the anxiety of picking out a good house, since this is the largest investment that we will make while relocating. Plus we have a house here in Illinois that we need to sell or probably have to rent out until it is sold, which we know will be especially difficult in this market.
I don't know many people that afford two mortgages for any length of time. So we would need to rent both homes for about one year until ours sells so that we can use the proceeds to apply to the relocation home.
I would have to believe that this is the number one concern or obstacle to overcome for anyone making the transition to homesteading. How can I be sure that this is a good decision to pursue?
