How do you guys who live alone, survive?
I have an OK job with 2300 Mo/ income
Decent places around where I work are in the Hood places are 1200+ ranges. I was looking but not seeing much for renting houses, they seemed to be 1400+
at that point is it worth staying at home a little longer and saving to just get my own home? My old man says at the point of renting a home for 1400, just get your own and the mortage would be 1200, and the 200 can go into a home repair fund.. is this true? help a new player out..
you don't make very much for how expensive the city is in is. And in markets like that right now, buying makes even less sense than renting, not that you probably even have a downpayment given how much you make.
Move in with roommates, save, and hope that housing crashes so you can get in when it is cheap.
so i should just rent a house until the market becomes realistic? uhg, the problem was i was trying to get away from people into my own place, but its like those places where you rent a 600ft copy paste apartment just dont exist here.
I swear the economy is fucked, yeah my job underpays but even then, is 10 more grand from 38k going to make or break me owning / renting?
Do you really want to know the secret?
Do you REALLY want to know?
You can't. You need a roommate. Especially in the northeast, renting is way too high to live alone. Find someone who isn't a slob and split costs.
Here is the secret to owning your own house.
1) Buy a house that has a few bedrooms
2) Rent the spare bedrooms out
3) Have them pay rent and bills, don't ass rape them, but have them pay enough to cover their shit plus a little more.
4) After the house is paid off, kick them out
Get good looking female roommates, have cameras hidden in the bathroom and their bedrooms and fap away.
