Love this weeks "Home of The Week," despite it's price tag and lack of outside space. Bit too modern in some places for me, but the size of the bedrooms and the principal rooms make up for that. At least they did leave some of the architectural details and the details on the outside of the house is really nice.
The Condo of The Week, I could live without. Although it is a good price for the size of the condo and the location. It's just way too open for my liking, and if they are putting another two condo towers in there that could block whatever view you have that would not be a good thing.
Think I'll stick with my place in the country!!!
Over at Saving For Travels blog she talks about her mortgage and rounding down her total owed. I did something similar this week. We pay our mortgage weekly and it is an uneven number, meaning it isn't a straight $100 (only an example, I wish it were that little!!) So I rounded it up and added an extra $9.17 per week to it, which may not seem a lot per week, but over the life time of our mortgage it will knock off around three weeks. We are pretty fortunate, as we hope to have our mortgage paid off before the end of 2013. So even if you can only afford to put an extra $10 per week/two weeks/per month, it may be worth while doing it?
