Almost three months ago, I asked the question: "Is Family Worth $400,000?"
After a hours of discussions and spreadsheet preparation, today I can say that the answer for us is "absolutely".
We will be moving into our new super expensive house in less than two weeks. This will be a huge change for our family and our impeccably sculpted affordable suburban lifestyle.
How affordable was our home?
Of all the houses for sale in Ottawa, ours was chosen by CTV News to represent our city in its House of the Month - First Time Buyers Edition. As always, it's a fun chance to see how far your money goes across this country of ours. To see your own house in the mix was a pretty sweet surprise!
