Moving to where it's cheaper not greener.

Well fellas I wish I could stay but man it's just not getting any cheaper out here. Everything is going up and money is going down so decided to make my move while things are a lot cheaper where I'm going.

Moving to Michigan. Bought a house right off a small lake out there It's an A frame with 3 acres. The price was right at $76,500.00 so jumped at it and closed the deal in 23 days.

I'll be back for that good heat generating black stuff. Also if any of you guys are passing by Edwardsburg Mi. give me a shout and there will be a room with a view warmed with coal open for you.

I'm not leaving the forum but have to be able to live on what I can make and right now that means moving to a cheaper area.

Peace

Wood'ncoal, Yes the coal burners are coming wouldn't part with them for nothing!

Dvc500 at last, If you go to Realtor.com put in the zip of the area you want to move too and keep looking and know what you want, it can happen. The house was on the market one hour when I placed the bid, they excepted in 6 hours. The only reason it took 23 days to close was we were waiting for the bank to stop playing with our ira savings, had to sign this and sign that. One other note, we paid cash for it so the closing cost was a hefty 100 bucks.

Smitty, Had to get the house appraised for insurance. They set the replacement cost at $310,000.00. I feel like a hog in a two year old mud hole I tell ya.

I'll try to add link of the realestate agent if thats ok http://www.ihouse2000.com/bin/web/real_ ... IST&sold=1

Going to try and upload a pic of the place.

Thanks everyone ! I didn't want this to happen the way it did but as things changed with the economy I had to change with it. The wife has been through the cancer shuffle for the last 2 years. The company I worked for moved to South Carolina and closed the plant I worked at complete this last month. So I had to decide what to do next and fast. So I figured why not go to a place where I wouldn't be the only one with problems. If and I mean a big if, the economy is going to get better Michigan might be one of the first to see daylight. But if the economy tanks worse than they think then I figure Michigan is already in line for a lot of the money that would have to be spent to prop up the country since they are in the worst shape. Ahh hell it's all in how you look at it anyway, and I'm still on the right side of the grass, what more can you ask for.
