its kinda cool but there's no way i'd live there
Once you reach a certain amount of wealth practicality no longer really matters. Would it surprise you if out of shot they had a helipad constructed? It wouldn't surprise me. I mean if you can create such a stupid and self-indulgent living space surely you could put in something like that too.
Depends on the rent. I'd live in a shitty little cupboard like that for a few years if I could save money to buy an actual flat. I'm betting that's in a trendy area though and costs an arm and a leg.
Life goal: have a huge fuckin' condo with an all-wood study like this.
And then use it mostly to bend girls over the desk.

no it doesnt.
it doesnt at all. living outside of town you almost always have neighbors, and furthermore the statement "anyone could peer in" is not dependent on the presence of neighbors, but simply dependent on the windows providing visibility to the inside of the house. Its entirely possible for people to go wandering through the woods and stumble upon your house
Drake had the best bed I think. It's so weird to think that I'm now older than those two
Nice one fampai; I bet you've got lots of friends are are well-liked!
>stuttering while typing
kek you're funny anon.
I'm not the person you were talking to, I'm just the one watching you slowly have an autistic meltdown.
So typically american
This is only getting better! I feel like you probably hit yourself and say "stupid, stupid, stupid," when you get anxious.
Really though anon, get some psychological help, and get your underage self off of /fa/.
There's more to the world than north america m8
Literally stolen from Ghost in the Shell
It comes at a cost
(namely: this ugly piece of shit)
This is actual dream.
>All those neat shelves
>Lovely urban brick area out the window
Definitely feel you on the infestation of warehouses. Good advice overall
Another thing I'd like to add is that you should definitely check your cellular signal strength wherever you're thinking about renting. Don't rent a place to find that you have two bars when you settle in.
Also consider power outlet situation
That's nothing, the average price/m^2 in the centre of Paris is ~14000, so a 100m^2 appartment would cost ~140000€, and you're telling me a skyscraper is cheaper than that ?
What would you need more than 1 room for anyway? Assuming that you dont invite friends, never watch TV of course. Then all you need is a bathroom, a kitchen, a desk and a bed. Plenty of space for all sorts of activities.
My student apartment, anyone have any pointers for things to change or improve?
This is nice anon, but i'm inclined to agree with >>10880847 on bed linens
Maybe consider changing curtains to some which incorporate one of the orange tones from the print above your bed. Or even the blues and whites like pic related
I've got too much time on my hands but see what I mean? Makes it much brighter
Done!- Kind of, I'm not allowed to make holes in the walls, so I'm limited to mounting tape. As you see I'm supporting it on the wall strip.
Still, it looks cleaner than before IMO.
Damn that's a nice shop. I agree too, really balances out the yellow-green walls.
The curtains are a weird kind of mount so I'll have too look into how I can actually change them.
Yeah it's expensive, but it's my only real expense and I live pretty frugally, so as of right now it's worth it for me. :)
if i made my own model picture wall would it come across as really creepy?
like pic related
Buying something is an investment, you get way more jewed by renting
That being said i'd much rather have a nice big house near the coast in my country than an apartment in NYC but if I had the money, why not both huh
This man speaks the truth.
Take, for example, the condos in the famous Watergate here in D.C. I looked into buying one a loooong time ago. They used to command insane prices, now they don't because a lot of the places there are falling apart thanks to an aging owner populace (when I visited, there was a dead rat in the fountain).
Take, for example, this decent looking place in the Watergate:
$2,795,000. Not bad for the size/location/etc, and it's been impeccably kept. Except:
HOA Fee: $5,305/mo
For the HOA alone, you could pay the mortgage on this place (not to mention a bunch of other mansions that are available - I just picked a sorta-equivalent apartment):
Okay, I'll explain that using fake numbers but my situation:
Let's say I buy a place for ~$500,000 (fake number), throw down 5% ($25k) as a down payment, and get 3.0% interest (I got this rate mostly by being an aggressive dick to BoA and Quicken). That's $2,870/mo. Assuming it's a reasonable condo, I'll have an HoA fee of $500, so I'll pay about $3,370/mo. for my place.
At 12 months in, I'll have paid about $15k in interest and $10k in principal. At 24, $29k interest, $21k principal. I "make" more and more the longer I pay (see chart).
Let's say I compare myself to a guy who rents at $3,300/mo:
At the end of one year, he has paid $39,600. I have paid $40,440, of which $10k is principal, so I'll be "out" $30,440. I own the principal.
At the end of two years, he has paid $79,200. I have paid $80,880, of which $21k is principal, so I'll be "out" $59,880. I own the principal.
So by year two I've already made $21k over the renter, minus owners' costs (repair/replacement/etc.)
In my case, I bought a place that needed repair and did it myself. It has since appreciated 20% according to the city I live in (thanks for the huge tax bill, fuckwits). So my $500k place is now worth $600k, and in two years I now have $121k over the renter. Of course, I expose myself to the risk of depreciation, something going catastrophically wrong, higher insurance rates, etc. Whether you value that risk as worth the $21k is up to you.
That's the basic idea, anyway.
>I still don't see how buying a place is an investment. Renting a place is much more of a money saver.
