This is a shout out to all of us who had buyers remorse for various reasons. I bought in Jan during pandemic.
My remorse is being on a corner lot on a posted 35 mph road w road noise, 45-60 avg speed thats not enforced & increased foot traffic along my easement unknown when I bought during pandemic.
I almost put my home on mkt this week and could make a few thousand or break even. Yet…I cant bring myself to do it as I get a dread feeling in gut.
It would be extremely difficult to buy something else and idea of renting again as rents continue rise horribly!! Mkt may be softening. Damn should have waited to buy maybe!!!
Yet, my home is a really nice one and really really affordable in a decent area. Not my ideal area, but good enough. As my savings builds up again this spring I will pay cash for a wooden privacy fence for back yard & do the front w aluminm and add privacy evergreens.
For now and what has really saved me was purchase three of these Magicteam Sleep Sound White Noise Machines on Amazon. They have been a life saver!!! I placed 1 in each of the windows that face the road. Setting #1 is a gentle woosh sound and it really helps to “smooth out” road noise. I will buy acryllic Indow inserts yet $500-600 a pop will have to come later. May just replace w triple pane. Afraid to be homeless if rental and housing mkt continues to rise. It took 2 yrs to find a starter home in good condition. At what point is it “just good enough.”?
