Yeah, but that'll never happen again........right?
Aint glamorous, but it's simple and cheap out here ******* pigs at the home place.
You're doing what to those pigs?
$60,000 in property taxes per year?!?!?!
You Scrooge McDuck???
I wasn't going to say it, but also curious
I spend over $180 per gallon of gas. My custom-built Lamborghini only takes the blood of infant royalty. It's tough out there.
Taxes & regulations. Then more taxes and regulations. If there is anything left they tax it...and regulate it.
I'm not sure what's driving it this time...I guess fear of being left out?
I'm shocked that even here in San Antonio we've seen major price increases...in the past 4 years my house has shot up from $240k to $350k +.
Land has done the same.
It's really misleading to start spouting bad information like this. My fear is you're telling all the young, impressionable 20-somethings in your life this garbage.

helps you compare the costs of buying vs renting the same house and when I entered my numbers, it's very close. A more real life scenario is comparing buying a 3BR/2Bath house vs staying in a 2BR apartment. Most people will need to fill that bigger house with furniture, buy and maintain appliances, lawn mower, snow blower, etc. If you take a few minutes to think about it, it really only makes sense to buy if that's the lifestyle you want + you can afford it. Consider also how long you will stay in that house.
I'm not against owning a home but don't go into it without considering all the costs vs the benefits.
lol, no, its per year. And I can't even blame autocorrect for that mistype.
When you consider that I had mentioned you had to be able to afford it.....
If you can’t, it’s understandable.
Ok...so why is a $20k remodel $100k in California?
I'm all ears.
Pay isn't much higher in CA than Texas or anywhere else. Are you telling me there is that much fuel used in a remodel at $4.99 vs $2.49?
Financial related decisions are rarely that black and white.
If you can afford the house, you should buy it and not rent it.
What if you might get a new job in 3 years? Or plan to have multiple children? Or are gone a lot? Or don't want yard maintenance but the house isn't in an HOA?
Understandable that you wouldn’t want to.
Until people provide actual reliable data, these claims are just hyperbole. Moreover, the data must be apples to apples comparisons.
Seems to me many here just want to bag on California, mostly for (perceived) cultural differences--most of which are hyperbole as well. Go to any old 10-year old Saturday little league game in suburban CA, and it'll feel pretty much like one in suburban Iowa.
What you're really saying is buying is always better ... unless it isn't.
