Like a year or two ago I bugged you guys for some mortgage advice, ended up not buying due to a move to Minneapolis... been here now 8 months now and just closed on our first place!
We were torn between a condo and a single family home (mostly for a yard for the dogs) but found an awesome condo on the first floor with a private patio area (dogs allowed) and pulled the trigger.
I know I shouldn't feel guilty, but the lady we're bought it from bought it 07', and lost almost 50% of the value by selling now. The building actually used to be an old corporate office building from the 90s and then in the 2000s converted into condos. So we have really tall ceilings and huge windows throughout which makes it feel bigger than it is I think.
We're just SW of Minneapolis on 169 and 62 (for the twin cities friends), the best part of moving out of downtown, where we currently are, is we'll have to get a 2nd / new car!
Just thought I would share the excitement - few pics of the place from my 15 mins there the other day
Kitchen / Living / Dining is just one open area
Super nice bathrooms -
