My husband and I bought a house about 4 years ago. We were thrilled to find it. It was quite a deal. 30 acres, 3 bedroom, 2 bath. It was everything we were looking for. It is in the county, has two stories, away from the mass, and it even came with horses.
I love my home, but I laugh every time something breaks or needs fixed because the only person we have to call about it is ourselves.
You never think of the little things that you will have to take care of when you are your own landlord.
But by the time we pass and our children take over it will be ready.
