This week we found out that Tom got a residency spot here in Saginaw, so we will be staying at least another three years. Upon learning this news we have been going back and forth on the rent vs. buy issue, which in today’s market (especially in Saginaw) is an important one if you don’t want to stay here forever. Tom changes his mind just about every day, but today we’re going to look at a little house that has been in the possession of medical resident after resident. It looks good on paper, so in a few hours we’ll see if it looks that good for real. I’m really excited at the prospect of this house – it’s adorable and our mortgage payments wouldn’t be any more than we’re paying now. I’m torn between freaking out at such a life-solidifying event and shrugging it off as a good financial decision and nothing more. Still not planning on starting a family anytime soon, so I can put off feeling like a grownup for a little while longer, right?
