My wife & I were in southern Virginia the beginning of last month looking at some homes. We found a nice 1350 sq ft 3 bedroom 2 bath brick ranch with an attached carport & A full basement on 1 acre of land with room to put up a 2 car garage. We have been talking about getting out of NJ since NJ is ranked in the top 5 of worst places to retire in, & after doing some research we decided on southern Virginia. So it looks like in about 2 1/2 years when we retire we will be moving out of NJ. The closing should be in a couple weeks, then the fun of renovating it begins. Here is a picture of it I took when we were there to look at it. The house is located in a nice area about 15 minutes west of Martinsville, about 1/2 hour from the North Carolina boarder.

Cool Mike I'm sure you will like the weather better there! I'm sure you are taking the Ranger too?

Most definitely the Ranger, my wife's Explorer Sport, her motorcycle, & my Mustang are coming with us.

Congrats!!

Ooooh I like the brick!
Needs some other color paint but looks to be a very solid house!
The pink paint makes the bricks and roof look pink too.........

Today my wife & I signed all the papers & had them notarized & mailed them back to our attorney in Virginia so they can file for the new title on Tuesday. The house is almost ours.

Congrats.  Doesn't look like a garage in that picture.  You going to have to add one?

Thanks. No there is no garage, but there is enough room on the side of the house where the carport is to put up a garage.

Congrats on the new house Mike !

We purchased a place in SoCal about six years ago now, two years of remodeling, but we got in and have never looked back.

I was just saying to the wife that we should sell and buy another place, she almost fainted, LoL !

I was thinking AZ for some open carry !

Good Luck with the remodeling !

I would so love to be able to build my own garage!  Years ago I helped my brother in law build onto his house.  He had a tiny one bedroom on a huge lot, so we added a five car sized shop.  

I am stuck in Denver for the foreseeable future.  As long as my Dad is still above ground I will probably be living with him.  And my grandson is here.

Out of curiosity, what makes NJ so terrible to retire in? I'm in AZ, and 1/3rd of my neighbors are snowbirds/out of state retirees... They come here for the weather, especially in the winter.
