It is sometimes possible to find a duplex, triplex, or maybe a pair of houses on a "flag" lot which makes sense to buy because the rent from the other units may cover enough of the expenses to make your own unit cheaper than renting the same thing yourself.

It's even possible for a group of people to all chip in and buy a house together. A group of people can always afford more than any one of them on their own. But you have to be able to get along with them.

What's gonna happen to the american spirit called Individualism? In old days, joint families were common--in fact, it could be seen as a safety net. Today, the gubmint should provide safety nets.

It is possible also for me to eat a sandwich for lunch today.
