Nashville New Homes: A new home or a puppy? Which is least expensive?

Back in February, I returned from a mission trip in Honduras to find out we were getting a puppy.  Here is Ruby, our new “Blue Doberman” at 6 weeks old.  (Notice she has floppy ears)

For those that are keeping up with the news regarding housing, things are really looking up for a change!   And the word is getting out too.  Read on…. http://money.usnews.com/money/blogs/flowchart/2011/03/28/one-sign-the-housing-bust-could-end-soon

Back to Ruby.  She is now 12 weeks old.  And her ears are now different.  (I always thought a Doberman came with pointed ears until now.)

To my point. 

We got Ruby on February 13.   She has now had her ears “clipped”  (which I still think is mean) and various other puppy charges,  and the responsibility of pet ownership has already set in.  And it adds up.

If someone bought a new home on February 13th, the first payment has still not come due.  And when it does, with today’s historically low interest rates, that payment will not break your budget.  After all, everyone has to live somewhere…why not in your own place?

FACT:  You can purchase a new home, and spend less cash than purchasing a puppy.

Here is a great example combining the purchase of a new home – and cash flow management. 

This brand new home in Rivendell Woods of Cane Ridge is all ready to be your next home, especially if you already have a puppy.  The back yard is already fenced in!  At 156,990, just bring your furniture and food.  Even the window blinds and all kitchen appliances are included.

What cash flow?  Using THDA’s “Great Start” program (www.thda.org) through Ole South Financial, you can move in this new home with ZERO cash out of pocket.   And your first payment will not be due until July, if you want to plan it that way!  Right now, you can own a brand new home in Nashville for less than $750/month, including taxes and HOA!

We’ve got a great selection of traditional homes and townhomes all over Middle Tennessee.  From 89,990 to 299,990, you are certain to find the perfect home for your needs.  And one that your puppy will like too! 

Call me anytime and let’s explore your many options!  If I cannot answer, please leave a message.  I’ll probably be taking Ruby out to pee!
