Just got back from settlement, I'm on cloud 9 right now.
It's a 1 bedroom condo, not much, but it sure beats sharing a house.
No more putting up with roommates and all their stupid shit.
No more dealings with the squirrelly fucking landlord.
Just wanted to share, think I'll crack open a beer to celebrate...

Welcome to the American Dream!

I was thinking about getting a house when my apartment lease is up. Is getting a house with the no down payment thing a good deal though? Or will I be paying for it up the ass?

Also if I got a house, it would increase my commute from 5 mins to 40 mins, and it probably wouldn't be as nice and modern as my apartment. Bleh.

TAXES up your ass
Maintance
Association dues
Damage from the elements and family
Power outages

Yup the American Dream! I couldnt get in fast enough. Nothing like your own home.

When I bought my house, after paying the mortgage, I had $100 to last for the month.

BUT my house has appreciated to 5 times what I purchased it for.

I don't plan to sell my place, because I'm going probably retire in it.

Best investment you'll ever make. Congrats.

Congrats.

Nothing like knowing you can live like trash and it's alright because you own it

Congrats. All you need to do now is wait for something to break, leak, shut down, catch fire.

On the other hand nothing says " I have become an adult" like owning a home. Congratulations.

Dude, do you really think you're NOT paying all this with your apartment rent? And making a profit for the landlord at the same time?

(And power outages happen everywhere, not just at someone's primary residence...)

Don't forget, your real estate taxes and mortgage interest are TAX DEDUCTIBLE!!!!

Don't forget to write the interest off on your taxes.
