Controversy over NEW vs. OLD!

You love your old sneakers….so you save em and get new ones….or Huck the stinky old ones, or??

 

Ok how about your car, or phone?!  Old vs. New?

 

Maybe it’s more of a cultural question.  Sure some things we love new and others we love because they’re old.  From there it can be simplified to individual preference.  Let’s face it, some like to go antique collecting and others like to get rid of their junk…it all depends on where you stand.

 

So what about this example of a new home vs an old home?  And where does ones opinion cross the boundaries into others rights?
