We’re doing it again, folks. Buying a house. Now, I know you’re saying “But, you already own a house in Boston and you are renting in DC.” This is all true, BUT, just like in Boston, it’s a very rentable city, DC is, and one where we could buy a house, actually live in a place that we own, and rent it out when we move on to our next duty station, wherever that might be.
Dream sheet? Single-family house near a metro station. Our agent has so far sent us tons of townhouses, but we haaate townhouses. Everyone all squished together, 3 or 4 stories of narrow living, and lots of stairs. No thanks! We are holding out for the elusive single-family in one of the most expensive cities in the country. Yay us!
I’ll, of course, be documenting it all here, but keep your fingers crossed!
