We are moving!

DH and I have happened upon a great deal. My mom and step-dad own a house in a small town 13 miles away from where we all live right now. They are currently buying a house here in town as well. The house in the next town needs a lot of work done to it and DH and I were planning on purchasing it and rebuilding it. Well, I went to my mom's yesterday to pick up a couple of things and she surprised me by asking me how much longer the lease is on our apprtment. I told her it was up next month. She then asked me if we would like to buy their home here in town from them. My stepdad is not in the best of health and they are worried that if something (God forbid) happens to my SD then she couldn't afford their home here. The other home is less than $200 a month for the house payment and insurance combined. it is very much smaller as well. The house they live in now is 2009 sq feet, and that doesn't include the finished basement with the bedroom.
