Matt & I went to a viewing of a townhouse last night, the first viewing we've gone to. We both actually like it a lot; it's got about 50% more square footage, good size rooms, a finished basement, a good layout and the price is about $10k less then my personal limit. The only problem is that the HOA dues are just under $250/month and they're a decent chance that that'll put the monthly cost over my affordability threshold. Also, apparently the property has been on the market only about a week, so the sellers aren't desperate to give concessions to sell it. ALSO also, I need to have $1000 minimum on hand for closing and it'll take me a few more months to save that up, assuming no injuries, accidents or emergencies happen in the meantime.
