alexd said:buy a house ev, condos suck
ev said:found a place i think i'm going to buy...
i've never bought a home/condo before
anything i should know? advice? tips?
you know exactly what you're talking aboutNemIsis said:alexd is right... when you look at maintenance fees? Houses are cheaper.. Odd but true.. Check out houses first, include what you would spend every month on maintenance and trust me, you probably could afford a house..
Better turnover..and you can decide how much to spend on 'maintenance'

congratulations, you should get into real estate with your vast knowledgeev said:sorry douche... but i don't know shit about this sort of thing. hence the thread.
by the way... i saw a unit in your building... exactly the same as yours, listed on mls... for 12k less then your paid, douche.
ev said:vinder, if you didn't give such great blow jobs... i probably wouldn't be your freind.
NemIsis said:ok.. I won't help anymore
Although Ev, truly.. Good luck.. It's a guagmire you're jumping into.. ( I always depend on my best friend in RE. He's awesome).. And right now? He's been telling me to wait until the market tops itself..
Good luck! I'm waiting 2 years
ev said:i thought about waiting a bit longer.. but i found this place in a KILLER location... in a nice new building... and it's small so i can actually afford it right now. So i decided fuck it.. i'd rather pay my own mortgage then someone elses.
