Any Advice About How To Have Our Dream House?


Everyone has their idea of a dream house.  Some people's dream houses may be grandiose, but mine is actually much simpler.  I just want a three bedroom home large enough to house our family of five with an eat-in-kitchen, a fenced-in yard for a dog, and perhaps a tiny little office for me.  I'm not looking for a jacuzzi or a terrace or a fireplace in the master bedroom.  I just want a simple house where our family can create fond memories.

About 7 years ago, we purchased a two bedroom townhouse, which we thought would be a baby step towards our dream house.  Here we are, 7 years later, still stuck in this shoe box because the value of the home dropped nearly by half.  So I need someone to tell me what we should do.  If you have ever been in this situation and have successfully been able to move forward, I would love to hear about what steps you took to do so.

Looking back, perhaps we should have been looking at real estate in Park City, Utah or Tulsa, Oklahoma . . . somewhere away from Massachusetts?  It seems like being stuck in our situation is the price we had to pay for wanting to stay close to our families.
