All signs point to “yes”.
After speaking with my accountant, discussing the situation with The Foof, consulting my girlfriend (Erin), running the numbers for myself (now versus then, average and worst-case each), and seeking reassurance from Erin (again) and my brother and my sister-in-law and my friend (Mom was unavailable)…
I’ve decided to buy a townhouse. The best townhouse I could ever find for the price in Northern Virginia; it’s immaculate to a “T” and pretty much rules the Fucking Earth.
I’m taking the leap… and I’m fucking excited.
The only misgiving I have about the entire process is making the sellers and our agent wait so long for the answer. The answer is “yes, let’s fucking do it… where do I sign?”
Do I have to sign in blood?
