Condo living

So, after touring some houses, sifting through many online, and getting pre-approved for a mortgage, I'm beginning to come to a conclusion…

Maybe condo life isn't so bad after all?

Sure, I'm still miffed about chunks of it. Like the HOA's and noisy neighbors and somewhat restrictive rules.

But with every house I look at I find myself saying things like "it isn't as light as my condo" or "the ceilings aren't as high" or "there's no dining table space" or "the layout is really choppy".

And location is an issue.

Most of the homes I'm looking at are smaller. And older. And the nicer ones always seem to be in sketchy neighborhoods. And the fixer uppers are in the nice areas.

I do not want a fixer upper.

Worst of all, the only home I've found so far that I've 70% liked was more than I really was looking to spend. AND it wasn't without issues.

Ugh. What a hassle.

    Well – today I started doing currency trading. In a few years that could net us quite a sum. But unlike stocks, currencies don’t require constant fiddling. And I’m getting in at a low price on a crypto currency that if it performs like say BitCoin could be worth a reasonable fortune.

    If you’re thinking of changing jobs (and possibly locales) do you really want to invest all the monies associated with a move?

    While its true that condos have their share of cons, they also come with lots of pros. In a condo you never have to worry about a leaking roof, damaged siding, shoveling snow from the sidewalk and driveway, mowing the grass or hiring tree trimmers and landscapers. Those are all things you’d have to do if you owned a single-family home. It might pay to stay where you are.
