So yesterday, my brother Nate took me and dallas around the valley to look at a few townhomes and condos that are fairly good priced. Some a little better than others.. but i'll get to that. We are living in a pretty small apartment right now which is really cheap, but as all of you know, it is basically like we are throwing money down the drain staying here. I mean YES we have a place to live, YES it is in good area but we cant build any equity here because we dont own it. Thus the reason why we are looking around. Plus it is a really good time to buy. Well, Nate took us to some that are just being built off state and about 8500 South. They are condos and townhomes and they are pretty cute. The townhomes are more pricey but i liked the condos equally as much. The only thing with that place is that Dallas works up in Ogden and i work Down Town so the drive could get old. The second place he took us just to do a "look-see" was some condos out in West Valley. They were cute too but i HATE the area. It just is not for me. Ok... so here is the stumper. The last place we went was Stansbury Park. If you dont know where that is, it is the city thats right before Tooele. You have to drive a ways on I-80 but it only took us 30 minutes from there to my moms house in South Jordan, so it really doesnt take that long of a drive. It's a very pretty drive in fact. I havent been out there for about 15 years. The last time i went out there was when i played a soccer game against a team there. It was a lot smaller back then. The place has really grown. You get a gorgeous view of the great salt lake and the pretty mountains on the opposite side. Anyway, back to the townhouses. They are built by Ivory Homes and they are awesome. The one that we are looking at has two bedrooms, two 1/2 bath and a HUGE kitchen. The total square foot is 1,812 and i'ts $160,000. It includes lots of amentities that the other ones dont offer, and the other town house on State Street ran at $201,000 and it was NOT nearly as big. So we just dont know what to do. I love the townhouse, i just need to get over this idea that Stansbury is not at the edge of the world. I'll keep ya posted.
