How Old is Too Old

We are still looking to sell our house so we can move on.  It is taking quite some time to sell but the right person to buy must be out there.  This LO tells something about where we are at with the selling.

The kit I used was Home Sweet Home by dinskip.

So we know that what we can affort is a 2 acre piece of land with a relocated home.  A relocated home is one that has been moved from one site to another.  Preloved I guess you could call it.

This brings me to the point of my thoughts.  How old is too old when it comes to these preloved homes.  Some of them were built 100 odd years ago and still have the original wall panelling on them.  The cost to relocate them is a fair amount considering they probably would be best suited for the fire brigade to practise on.  Then the renovations, well I supposed a bottomless pit of money would be the best way to describe how much it would cost to return these character filled old beauties to better days.

Now there are newer preloved homes that people are selling which would be much better suited to us.  Less old world character but would provide us with more modern facitilies, less time needed to renovate and of course fewer dollars needed in the long run.

In the mean time we sit and wait for the right person to come along and buy our house.
