Dream Home vs. Being SmartHello,We just found our dream home, put a bid on it, and it was accepted. We have moved forward with everything and now all we need to do is sign paperwork which is being drafted.While all this happened, my girlfriend's job situation became a bit questionable. She is a freelancer and has never had trouble getting work, but as of right now a job she is on may not continue. That being said, it would be a major strain to make this house work.Once she found out about this recent development, we started looking at other options. We found a house that is $100k less and would drop our monthly mortgage by $500 a month. basically, if we put the offer in, we will get the house. She likes the house and sees the potential. I'm a bit hung up on our dream house, but I know we need to be smart about things.That being said, I wanted to see what some of you thought. Looking forward to your responses.March 09 2014 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
