My best friend from college bought a Veridian home in Sun Prairie. From what I've heard, he likes the house so much, his inlaws bought one less than a block away. It's a nice place, good floorplan, fireplace, etc. He has one income, and 3 kids, and they seem to be doing fine with it.

Damn. If a close relative of mine were going to like the place I lived in soooo much that they moved in less than a block away... that would be really good incentive for me to not buy that house in the first place.

Depending on the family moving in, I might actually like that.

I would too, actually. If that person were my mom. She's the only one that I like a lot -- and the two of us both have enough sense to not just stop off any-old-time/all-the-time. So we'd have co-gardening time and iced tea in the sunshine, probably.

Fortunately, I've lost contact with the majority of my family. And they wouldn't be so much of the house-buying type, anyway... *phew*

They have 2.75 young children (Third on the way). The grandparents love the children. It's a good thing, a little help with the younguns. Plus, the inlaws are from New Orleans (Getting out after Katrina) and a teenager, so Sun Prairie is good for them.

One thing about the Veridian homes in SP, the lots are AWFUL Small. Something about new urbanism or something.

Does he have an FHA loan?

Sun Prairie is much less expensive too. We looked at some east side homes and could get more house for the money. However, we'd then be commuting to the west side for work, which seems silly. We may be able to build somewhere close enough that I could bike or walk to a bus and Fox could walk to work.

Not that I know of re: FHA. I'll ask next chance I get. He's a saver, he probably had a huge down payment.
