You have to consider the difference in housing cost between VA and the part of California he is talking about.
Hell I just moved from southern CA to Texas and the cost of living is so much drastically lower in TX.
Not too sure what the real estate differences are between CA and VA, but I am sure there is a difference in VA's favor.

every situation is different , a nice house in one city can mean a shack in another, and what is considered a nice car? judging by the price or the car?

I would save up the 20-25% down for a house that you can see yourself "dying in" ...

OP, how do you define amazing cars?

For some people a little 3 series is nothing.

Everybody has different circumstances.

In L.A., I would say getting or renting a nice apartment is a must. You have to pay a lot of money to get away from the thugs and gangsters so it depends on what city you live in.

*shifty eyes* what about already having a car you're content with in college, but it being your expensive to maintain BMW, and wanting a house?

Compromise = hard.

I live outside of dc, cost of living here is just as expensive as it is in CA.

True but I was referring to modded/turbo charged e9x's that I've seen parked in front of peoples' apartments. Those are pretty amazing cars IMO. I just question where some of their priorities are financially.

nobody knows. A lot of these people with nice cars may be in debt. It's hard to really know.

I then rent my previous house which covers my mortgage and on top of that I average $500-1000 per month In cash-flow (depending on the property). I'm 27, I own 4 houses in the "hot" neighborhoods in Denver, I have a fully paid off 08 335xi, a 99
a4 big turbo drag car, and a cabin 1 hour outside Denver. I tend to purchase my homes with 25% down. I must say that not having kids helps big time but that will change down
the road. As you can see I'm a big believer in home ownership and owning income properties. My goal is 10 investment properties by age 35, I'm on my way.
im mad how nonunique my plan sounds lol

I was thinking same thing, except limit to high demand real estate like a condo in chicago. Live there for a year or two, while building equity to afford down payment on next place, and do what I can.

Honestly, plans for this car - $10k in mods, absolute tops. But I will shell out whatever is needed beyond that in maintenance because I enjoy the car. I will not trade in my 325 for a 335 just because I want to get more tempted to get speeding tickets lol. I like to think I made my compromise by sticking with an affordable (to me) BMW.

Now maybe when I have the equity, I'll worry about things like "should I trade up for an M3?" etc. But otherwise, theres more important things in life. And much better ways to get your money to work for you then dropping it all into a car.

Plans for real estate - in the millions if I can have it my way.

But you my friend will live a life with your tail always tucked between your legs asking "permission" to do shit instead of being a grown ass man and doing what you want. Having to lie to your wife to spend any of YOUR hard earned money into your car or other hobbies. No thanks

Houses produce cash flow (Investment Property) is an Asset.

House that you live in (Primary Residence) is a Liability.

Nice car of course. Buying a nice car is a bad decision, but buying a nice house *right out of school* is even worst.

At least with the car you can't really lose much money on it. In the worse case you can just drive it down to the dealer and get rid of it. You may still owe the bank a few Gs but nothing that will really kill you financially.

Buying a *nice* house when you are just fresh out of school is just stupid. I dont care where you work and how much you earn, unless your father's last name is Bush I don't think you can guarantee your job will still be there in a few years.

Saving up the money for a smaller house, or save a bit longer for a nicer one. At least work for a few years to see if you really like the industry/company/city before you commit to a big investment.
