Might be buying my first house

Found a really cute one at a reasonable price. Gonna take a second look at the property tomorrow. Needs some updating (ie windows, wiring, furnace, water heater, kitchen...the usual.) The best part about this place is the yard. It's .63 acres on a city lot. And the house has a lot of character because of it's age. It was built in 1873. For a frame of reference, that's only 25 years after Wisconsin became a state!
Wish me luck.

Home ownership comes with it's problems but I think the benifits outway any of the negitive aspects.
You'll love that house even if it is in the worst place in town.
One with that kind of history could soon become a cache . OCus does allow virtuals right?

Well, we did end up buying the house. Still in the process of renovating, but we are expecting to be done with everything by the end of the month. Well, the major stuff at least :) As soon as the kitchen is finished, I'll post some before and after pics. It's seriously going to be one of those night and day situations. I'll just be glad when it's finished though!
