So I need some advice… after some thinking and a random comment my folks made the other day I’ve been thinking about stuff related to the house purchase decision. One suggestion my parents had was that instead of buying a house and land, or buying land and building a house, that I look at buying the land I want, getting a trailer on it and then building a house later on.
This is something I’ve previously avoided due to the thought of trailers as being far less desirable, but I’m definitely considering this more and more lately. I’m definitely trying to spend more time outdoors rather than indoors, and this would allow me to get not only more land that meets what I’m wanting long term, but into the country sooner, have room for a horse, pole barn, shop, and other things that I could do relatively cheaply in the short term.
I know some folk have looked at this, actually done this, or just considered it, etc. – what problems have people encountered? Am I crazy for considering this? Are there other better options? Thoughts or suggestions?
And on a different note, sorry for the few readers I’ve got left regarding the long time since a post – I’ve been crazy busy with life, but I’ll try and get some more details posted sometime soon.
