Re: Moving up and grinding a decent roll on Bovada. Possibly future career?

Yeah I mean interest rates have been so low for years that it makes more sense to just put your money in an index fund and pay a mortgage as opposed to paying cash. At lease you can build equity and have some kind of return for paying rent in the form or mortgage. Tax benefits are nice as well.

And maintenance is pretty cheap when you buy a brand new home. Been here 8-9 years and I haven't had to replace or repair anything.

To each his own.

Yea you bought your house at a very good time while I bought mine last year. I think that is the difference why we are having a different experience. I bought a relatively clean house (not brand new) and after less than a year, I had to fix couple of minor stuff already. And the value of my house hasn't really gone up much compared to last year while the stock market has gone up significantly.

Yeah that's completely understandable. Probably depends on the market where you purchased too. Like my home value has increased by almost 50% since I bought it. And it's in steady climb. Market is exploding where I live. And I didn't have to do anything but hang my hat here and pay some 3.5% interest which was tax deductible anyhow.

Haha I did buy mine right before the recession so I watched it go into the tank for a few years but it rebounded nicely. And I was the recipient of the first time buyer tax credit at the time which was like $6k ftw. Lol

Start: 10855.32
End: 10651.19
Loss: (-204.13)

Wow look like I missed out on some housing discussion. Anyways, my friend's don't post their salary, I just know how much they make based on the positions that they have. I guess if I was happy, I wouldn't be comparing lives since I will be concentrating on my life and not focusing on comparing. The thing is, I'm not sure how to make myself happy. Maybe I should work on that first.

Most people can't do this since they are likely to be moving around looking for a long term career
