buying property

Recommended Posts

what would you rather buy, a house or a condo? older members? what are you working with now?

 

i'd like to buy a house in the near future i think, paying rent is wack as hell. And the way i see it, houses aren't permanent necessarily, you can always pack up and sell, you just might lose your ass if it's not a buyers market, but hopefully, id be ok with staying put if that was the case until things turned around.

 

people think renting or living in the apts is the way to go sometimes, but after giving it some thought, you really are just throwing money down the tubes.

 

ive also been watching a lot of flip that house, moving up, and a few other house improvement tv shows, i love that shit.

 

i also want a house just to have a bunch of people come over and party all the time and hang out, somewhere to park my car in the garage, a jacuzzi, i'm going to make it a pimp ass house for sure....

 

anyone else getting near that time in their life where they might be buying a house or property?

her parents already told her they'd buy us a house when we get married... and their house is 4.5 mil, so i know they'd drop a pretty penny on their first born daughter. i'm pretty stoked about that.

My girl and I are starting to talk about buying a place, but shit in Brooklyn is getting crazy expensive. If we do get something, I'll probably renovate it myself and try to flip it.

homes are always the better investment.

 

condos cost a grip, and you still have to pay a montly maintenence fee by the people who maintain the whole building, which is almost like paying rent. i think you pay property tax too but i could be mistaken. it's been a couple years since i looked at one.

Yeah and dont forget your Insomniac Tweaking Klepto family members who need places to crash. ;)

Honestly though,

 

There is no way i could afford a house in this city. Last year we had a HUGE price boom and prices rose 40% overnight. A house in a low income project style ghetto area would cost me at least 300k.

Apparently I am of the first generation that can't afford to buy their own home unless they win lotto or inherit money.

 

Thats unless you work away overseas or in the mines like I intend to when I graduate.

I owned a home and loved it. Well, loved owning a home yes but hated gardening. Hated it... absolutely. About a year and a half ago I bought a condo and I'm waiting for it to be finished. ABot five more months. Last year I sold my home and made about $125k off it thanks to a super increasing housing market. I bought when prices were still relatively low and kept the house in good shape with some really good upgrades. I put the house on the market on Friday morning and I accepted an offer Friday night. That's how fast it sold.

The condo does indeed have a monthly "maintenance" fee but that also includes a lot of other things... like a concierge. That's almost like having a butler. The fees aren't that much, really. I've got covered secured parking, real storage not just some cage and roof top access. Streetcar rolls by the building for easy access into downtown (which is about a two minute ride to get to) and I'm one block from the river.

 

I bought the condo for $250k... it was recently appraised for $345k... and it's not even done yet. I think I made a good decision.

to hell with a condo, ultimate waste of money. the shit is a peice of someone elses, you have to live by MANY rules, you dont get land, you have condo fees every month or year depending on how they do it, neighboors right up on your ass,

and thats just off my head right now.

to me the greatest part about having your own house is that its yours and you can do what you please to it and enjoy the land you get with it, you know...

I own a house.

Condos are for divorced men or over-privileged girls straight out of college.

However, condos are nice if you do not own dogs and do not want to take care of a lawn.

 

The wifey just quit her job(Interior Designer) yesterday so we can start flipping houses.

 

1. You can't get rich working for somebody else.

2. You can't get rich if you're paying rent either.
