well what blows is it was supposed to be free in the 1st place! Her dad took some big hits in the market over the last 2 years so now his retirement is effected by it so i understand he needs to recoup but still. as of a month or so ago we realized we would have to buy it but he made it sound like just construction costs of about $250k and he would also be willing to play bank for us on that $250k also, no interest, so that'd be super manageable. Even if I borrowed it from a bank, no issue there as we could swing it. No chance I can afford a $3k a month mortgage, plus figure in $500 a month on taxes and insurance. shit my wife makes $2800 a month after taxes and I'll be lucky to pull in $1000-1200 a month while I'm still in school even with this new job. it doesn't add up, he knows it and he had the nerve to look me dead in the face and say "so what do you think? wanna think about it?". C'mon you know damn well we can't afford that.

Damn, i get where he's coming from and its not like you can get angry about it. But its obviously a huge disappointment. He shouldnt have made those promises if he couldnt keep them though.

Looks like Sethy-poo is going on a big time budget now and even with that I probably still won't be able to afford the fucking house. Either way, bye bye 1er
I have a solution for you. I know I'm all preachy about the E60 wagon I had, but you can find one for about $25k at this point. Drives great, not like a wagon but like a sedan. You'll have the N54 35i so you'll be familiar with the car's mechanics and electrics. Just a thought. I dont know the whole story but I'm sorry you're having to consider selling your 1er.

Good luck; I'll search around for a nice low mileage 530xi or 535xi wagon. Let me know if you're interested.

There is no advantage to owning real estate right now in America, and certainly no advantage to having debt with a shaky economy. There is a good chance the dollar can collapse in the next 2 years, and though a hard asset like a home is nice holding, its also going to burden you if you move or sell it.

Rent, thats all i got to say.

would be a great idea if rent wasn't as much or more for a decent sized space as it was for a mortgage around this area.

Maybe I'll keep looking.
