You should see the inside! I don't have photos of the interior, but the back of the house is all windows with views of the mountains . . . There's also a wet bar which has an oak finish.

Now to dig up funds . . .

Beauty, ODLP! I think I know where that is...hrm...I'ma try to catch up with you for more details.

Congrats! (And yep, 40 year mortgages do exist in our area...)

Oliver de la Paz said...

Hmmm . . . 40 year? I'm putting in for a 30 year. *thinking*

Congrats! I am so envious. This is awesome news.

Hi Olie! Hope all is well. As a homeowner of 3 years, I say take a 30 year mortgage if you can afford it. You don't want to be in debt for the rest of your life! Good luck.

Oliver de la Paz said...

Yeah, we're gonna take the 30 year mortgage. I just foresaw shelling out too much cash for too long a period. Besides, I'd rather pay out principal faster.

How random is it that I blog on here too and I just happened to be looking through them and yours popped up!? I'm not stalking you no worries. I miss poetry...writing short fiction isn't as fun. See you around! ~Caitlin Herman

WOW! Nice digs. Congratulations!!

ps There's some trick about paying your mortgage in two installments a month--it works out to an extra payment over the regular 12 months and apparently it goes right to the principal. Something to think about. :-)
