Ah The Joys Of Selling Your House
« on: August 30, 2013, 07:35:19 PM »
Seriously, today someone thought I was going to take 15K less than my asking and pay for their closing cost just because its been on the market a while. Hah, fuck that noise, they can eat a bag of donkey dicks. People are watching too many house selling/buying shows.  :lol:

Very true, I hope to be on the buying side soon, but at the moment it's rough. People are just retarded sometimes.

You seem to be mistaken...

Seriously.  There is no reason it should take a month, 10-15 people, and a stack of paperwork a mile high to buy a piece of property. I loathed every minute of the purchase process for the place we bought last year.

Im dreading the whole buying experience next spring. But with the VA Loan, there is no point to rent for 700+.
Choot'em!

Yeah....I'm not really enjoying the whole shelling out close to 800 bucks a month for our apartment...but I also don't want to deal with the whole "IF IT BREAKS YOU'RE HOSED" aspect of home ownership. But we're probably going to look into buying a house in the next couple years.

yea, there are some nice houses in the 70-80k range here, which would give me a payment of like 400. S0 tossing in taxes, utilities, and home owners insurance, i'd still come in well under what it would cost me for rent + utilities.
Choot'em!

I have mixed feelings about this.  I feel thoroughly jealous because you're building equity, and I'm not.  While on the other hand, your view does not look like this:


And the proximity to great food, excellent restaurants and sporting venues also cuts the DUI probability to zero.  (Not that I ever would, but there is no need to even worry about having a driver, etc)

:dunno: to each his own.  I certainly don't enjoy the price, but I split it with my girlfriend and we love the city life.  I certainly wouldn't mind 2300 sq ft and 5 acres, either.

This. My wife and I tried city life for a few years even though we both grew up rural. It wasn't for us.

I kind of like my views, in every season. And the neighbors don't complain about a few, extra, Jeeps sitting in the yard :lol:

The only real thing about city life that's really killin me right now is the lack of a garage to work on my cars in.  I want to have a place to work on projects, this apartment complex is killing me about that.
