    Kristopher says

    Iíve been very fortunate to find a great job and kept a low overhead which has allowed me to save quite a bit over the last 4 years.

    Kristopher says

    ideally purchase a $425k-ish complete fixer upper with 20% down and fix it up from there.

    That sounds very familiar - it's what I did. I'm in the thick of the "fix it up from there" phase. I'd do it again, but I can tell you that it is disheartening to go from being able to save significant amounts of money and have significant amounts of free time to saving 0 (or going further into debt) and having absolutely no free time. I think it will be worth it in the end (we will have a house much nicer than we would have been able to buy otherwise), but it has been a slog. A lot will depend on how much fixing up it needs (ours needed a bit of everything and a lot of some things), and how quickly you plan to get it done.

    I can't speak to current market conditions or trajectories in SD..I feel like we almost missed the boat buying in early 2013 Denver...couldn't afford anything we'd want at this point.

    Nobody says

    We should know the history. There was a roaring 20's which is followed by the depression and 2 World Wars.

    Was there a World War 1-1/2 that nobody told me about? Or perhaps a World War 3?

  • On 13 Dec 2014 in NPR *still* refuses to call Torture, Torture, swebb said:

    Maybe they think it is more effective to present the facts without a lightning rod label so their listeners can come to their own conclusions. That way the water cooler debates can be between two people about the opinion they have formed instead of focusing on whether or to what degree NPR is biasing the story.
