Houses


No, houses.


Yes. There are lots of places to live - apartments, castles, vans, under bridges, etc. There are pros and cons with sticking to a good old house, and pros and cons to renting versus buying the sucker. 

Living in a house is sweet because it's a place to yourself - you can usually have sex without your neighbors hearing. But of course with great privacy comes great responsibility, and a great migration of money from your pocket. 

If you buy the house, it's yours. You have the security of ownership. On the other hand, when the heater breaks, it's your own damn problem. And assuming you don't have the cash sitting around to hand over immediately, you're stuck with loans. Getting mortgages, for people with bad credit, isn't fun times. Having one, and needing to refinance the mortgage isn't fun times. Looking for mortgage refinance no closing costs isn't fun times. 

But you can cover the living room in peanut butter and no one will give a shit.

House, bungalow, dollhouse, apartment, what's your choice?

  2. A house of your own is a money drain. I wont get one before I can support not one, but two on my passive income.

  7. Brb coating my house with peanut butter for the shits and gigglez.
    For me though, I want to own some place small. I hate big houses. I currently live in a larger-than-average house with my mom (she owns it), and cleaning it is BALLS. Not fun at all. So I want a small place once I'm on my own. Just big enough for me and maybe my bf if we ever decide to move in together :]

  12. House. And I'd prefer to pay for it all in one go as opposed to a mortgage.

  13. Homeowner reporting. I love every second of living in a house I can call my own.

    Be sure not to buy a house you cannot afford to live in. Give yourself some breathing room in your budget so when something goes wrong, you'll have extra cash to get it fixed asap.
