I’m looking to make my first home purchase. It would be my main residence. I have two options either to build in Washington state (current residence) or buy a property outside of Dallas w/ 20 percent down.
I work remotely and love Texas and Washington state both. My family lives in WA & has 20+ years experience in new builds / rebuilds & general contracting. I have knowledge but work in programmjng. If I stay in WA I can get assistance on a remodel or new construction easily.
The problem is I would rather live near a lake for much less outside of Dallas. I find the weather and real estate market better in Texas and lived there for 3 years. If I purchase in TX I can remodel from out of state or buy at move in quality. Any advice, suggestions, past experiences?
