Made A Major Decision/Purchase

Quick review for those that are new:

I lived in a mobile home park for the last 3 years and the rent climbed until it was unaffordable. I sold my mobile home and put money in the bank with the intention of using it as a down payment on a condo or townhouse for which I am FHA approved. In the meantime, I moved in with my friend C. and my cat, putting my stuff in storage and my other two cats in a Pet Hotel.

Next week will be a month and Nothing is available! C.and I are both losing patience and I want my babies back so…

I found and purchased a 25 foot Trailer. I will soon be able to get my babies back. I will need to get a Handyman to do a couple things, though. There is a Lot available here and the Space Rent is only $378 a month. Plus, my Trailer Lot # will be the exact same as C’s. Just a different street name. How cool is that?!

The Cons of this are;.

I may need to Downsize some more.

I will probably need a shed.

It’s not exactly larger, like I wanted.

There really wasn’t another option.

Pro’s:

Space Rent is definitely affordable.

I can save for a car and/or a bigger place in the future.

It has a Bathtub

My little family and I will be back together!

I will be close to Cin, but, we won’t be in each other’s space.

I’m sure I can think of more Pro’s. I’m just a bit nervous at the moment. But, as usual, I have Faith. It doesn’t look like the housing market will turn any time soon, so, this is the best choice, at present. Plus, in a few more years, I will see where I am at, financially.

I should add that I am Grateful to get my family and my privacy back, soon.

  3. A wonderful women who mentored me when I was younger lived in a fifth wheel in a small park. I understand the fear. I am where I am today because of a bit of luck and good timing. I am sending energy to direct the right people to you to help.
