My daughter and her husband are looking for a townhouse -- their first home purchase. She updated her Facebook status thus: "Now we have two favorites. What to do . . . "
Her brother responded thus:
"what to do.". Obviously YOU have never bought a house before. The answer is like so totally obvious, at least to anyone with a strong base of Southern California real estate experience like me. [Ed. note:Hah. He lived in a rented apartment in the high desert for 4 years.]
Buy both of them.
Then live in one, rent the other out for $300 less than the payment, buy a convertible to travel between the two of them, live the high life for six months, and file bankruptcy.
I can't believe I had to spell it out for you. Duh.
Second comment, posted immediately thereafter:
In seriousness, we are praying God will grant you wisdom on your choice.
I love my kids.
