Tomorrow afternoon, we're meeting at our realtor's office and we're going to make an offer on the house that's so close to the school. After some consideration, it's probably the better investment of the two, and I think we can make some significant improvements in it to add to its eventual value. Heck, just peeling off those vile birdhouse stick-ons in the kitchen will increase its value quite a lot.
I'd like to plant some trees on the lot, since there aren't any at all right now. Landscaping is nonexistent, so I'd have free-rein to do as I like.
That, and if we get it, I won't have to cross any railroad tracks to get to school in the mornings.
