      I decided not to buy a house and just get more bitcoin while living with my parents. I now have 24 bitcoins which I accumulated since 2017. I still don't want to buy a house. cause houses have a lot of risk. I can just travel around and rent where I want. my bitcoin goes up more than houses. basically bitcoin is virtual houses you can carry on your back.

        Lulz my idiot father knocked 1.8m off of our family property by turning into a hoarder and not maintaining it and my uncle by putting a meth lab in knocked it all the way down to 1.4m. Whatever was left got termites into it and fricked the timbers so badly I couldn’t even get to some of the places I used to spend time as a kid. All this in three years. You ever sell a fricking mansion for 1.4m a king gave your family because your idiot boomer parents managed to destroy a six hundred year old inheritance in three years?

            it's like most boomers are either squandering the generational estate or bequeathing it without discretion.

            there must be a lot of rolling ancestral corpses out there.

            Not as many as you’d think, we only had 1-2 kids per generation and most of the men in my family married in their 40s to girls around 20. Gotta like less than 15 graves or so. We had a small mausoleum for kids, that’s really the main thing that’s filled to the brim. Apparently we are Indian Featherhead tier when it comes to the flu.

            you dont own shit

            if you locked in a home at a low price and at low rates, it's arguably more financially advantageous to be paying a mortgage than a lump sum purchase given the investment opportunity costs.

            with that said, most everyone buying these days is comparatively screwed.

            Yes it's usury, but again, opportunity cost. If you closed on a house at 250k and 4% interest, you can do a lot with the money you're setting aside in the near term other than just paying off the mortgage which has decent potential to outperform the cumulative costs of interest over the next 30 years, and the interest rate basically has parity with the current inflation rate.

            To pose it a different way: would you say it's a better financial decision to sell $200k of bitcoin -right now- to pay off a 30 year low-rate mortgage?

            make sure you do the math, you could be paying a hefty opportunity cost by being dogmatic about giving money to a banker.
            for example, my mortgage is at 2.65% fixed rate. the real dollar value of my balance is shrinking faster than the interest I'm paying on it, and I'd have to have been a moron to not have taken that deal.
            It helps that I didn't need the mortgage in the first place, meaning the money I would have used to pay it outright is instead invested, acting as an easy-modo money multiplier.

          Since they are so short term, most lenders want to make sure the income can handle the high PITI. These loans also come at a higher interest rate. They are normally reserved for high figure incomes with high credit scores.

          There are also 7 Year ARM loans with variable payout options after the initial 7 years. Also 5 year ARM. I never looked into those. I'm just scraping fora FHA 30 year putting minimum down in a HCOL right now lol.

            Why would a 10 year loan have a higher interest rate than a 15 year loan?
            15 year loans have lower interest rates than 30 year loans.
            Generally the higher interest rate is supposed to compensate the lender for their money being tied up for a longer period of time. So longer loan = higher interest rate.

            Anonymous

            Some of it is a risk balance between the lending price and the loan length. It balances out for more power to the lender because of the short length. It made sense from an article I read off Forbes a few years ago. At the time, the market was shifting a lot in the low term mortgage area. There was a lot of refinacing in this market when rates were bonkers.

I was too young and was blinded by their offer of $350k, so I sold. Looking back I was an idiot and should've fought them. It was such a great little house.

        Sure, but in hindsight it was 3 acres of land if a very desirable midwest suburb, where that much land is almost unheard of. I originally got it for such a good price because the home needed a complete cosmetic rehaul. I think I could've dropped 50k on renovations and the home would've been worth 425k-450k easily. With the current real estate prices I bet it would've easily been worth half a mil.

        Oh well. Good learning experience I guess and technically the city didn't need to offer any additional compensation at all.

I've spent a tremendous amount of time, money and stress in doing the job our parents, who had more years than I did to figure their lives out, couldn't do. I've sacrificed live opportunities to make sure she can at least get some semblance of a normal childhood. My next chapter in life is coming up that involves it's own set of decisions I either take now or come to regret later. As much as I love her I am going to have to choose myself and my goals this time around.

It has 40 days left on the auction, and the highest bid is currently 110k for a house easily worth 650k. If I can snipe it for under 450k I will put an offer in, but I'd be surprised if it doesn't go much higher than that as the date approaches

    Condos are actually very underrated. They also appreciate in value and are cheaper than homes. You can buy a condo, when condo matures, sell it, then get a cheap house, and then your cheap house matures and then move to decent B Tier American City and buy fancy house and if you get lucky it becomes A Tier and you get legit wealthy.

    This is what my aunt did in the 80s and she sold her little 1600sqft house for 2.5 million in California. INB4 bitter zoomer says ahhh that is all you have to do????

      are condos more noise-proof than apartments

      because otherwise i see no benefits over houses aside from less direct property maintenance required on the part of owners

        they guy you're talking to is a moron. condos are a terrible investment because they appreciate more slowly than townhomes or sfh and they dump harder during a housing downturn. the HOAs eat away at your profits, and they're often poorly constructed. his boomerBlack person aunt made millions because you could buy anything in Black personfornia in the 80s for peanuts and be a millionaire by just holding.

    most people don't buy their first home until they're in their late 50s to early 60s. i plan on buying a home at 36, 100% down payment.

      If you want a bit of cope, many people here are either larping or from poor countries/states with cheap houses.
      Also nice quads.

      >i bought a house
      owes 30 years

      you dont own shit

      Me personally I have no mortgage. I got a small warehouse to renovate into a home from my parents, and eventually I will have to pay rent in a rent-to-own scheme.

    I just want my crypto to pump from the current €60k to €100k so I can buy a house at 24. It should be enough of a down payment combined with what I have in the bank

    Im about to sell and move. I'll profit by about $100k.
    The job I'm taking has a parsonage I could live in, or I could buy my own house and have my mortgage payments be tax exempted.

    What would you do in this scenario?

    19, right before my 20th birthday.

    I had saved up money to get married to my hs gf and later found out she had been fricking a bunch of my friends. So I took my money and used it as a down payment to put in a small modest cheap house.

    That ex is now a 40 year old roastie single mom with 2 kids.

    99% of the time when people say they bought a house they mean they took on a mortgage (thats likely their parents cosigned for)
