After seven or so years of renting, I finally bought something.
It’s a condo. Nothing too special. But the price was right. Very right.
This is under the very real threat of being laid off any day now. F this economy.
But I’m gambler, so I suppose this is the real-estate version of “I’m all in.”
/has had several nightmares about being laid off
///who the deuce am I to be a “home-owner”?
Congratulations. Let’s hope that your nightmare doesn’t happen.
I bought a condo some years ago after renting it for a while.
At the time, the interest rates were ridiculously low, and I thought to myself, “I really should have bought something bigger.”
Now, I’m really REALLY glad I bought a modest place that I could afford. Also, I hear confliciting things about condo resale values. For a while I heard they were harder to re-sell, but now I’m hearing many people may desire smaller abodes because of the economy, so their value will go up.
I don’t care though. Being that I find financial and mortgage transactions evil, I plan to die here.
