   Home ownership is not an investment Feb 16, 2017 9:46 AM OBRebel84

         There are just so many variables out of the owner's control Feb 16, 2017 10:32 AM OBRebel84

         If you sold your house for less than you paid, just because you get some money back Feb 16, 2017 12:51 PM Optimus Prime 4
            That's not how it works. That's not how any of this works. Feb 16, 2017 1:36 PM VictoryRed
               Correct. Feb 16, 2017 1:39 PM EmoryBellard
                  Even if the monthly outlay were identical, it's still worse in this scenario. Feb 16, 2017 1:53 PM Optimus Prime 4
                     Factoring in pools is different Feb 16, 2017 2:14 PM DiamondReb
                        Not in Dallas Feb 20, 2017 11:18 AM TexReb1977
               $6000 a year can add up quick in an older property Feb 16, 2017 1:55 PM OBRebel84
                  At least those were improvements Feb 16, 2017 2:01 PM Optimus Prime 4
            If you're paying $2400/month for a $240,000 mortgage, Feb 16, 2017 1:49 PM EmoryBellard
               4.5% is another couple hundred a month (which were the rates six years ago) Feb 16, 2017 1:58 PM Optimus Prime 4
                  Makes sense with those numbers. Feb 16, 2017 2:00 PM EmoryBellard
            None of that even comes close to making sense Feb 16, 2017 2:06 PM DiamondReb
               That is exactly the note on a $240k loan in San Antonio Feb 16, 2017 2:17 PM Optimus Prime 4
                  To be fair, you bought a shit house and that's nobody else's fault. Feb 16, 2017 2:27 PM VictoryRed
                     It turns out home inspectors don't have flux capacitors Feb 16, 2017 4:02 PM OBRebel84
                        things not may need work.. Feb 16, 2017 4:08 PM VictoryRed
                        Mistype above. Feb 16, 2017 4:11 PM VictoryRed
                     Totally the inspectors fault the roof got destroyed by hail Feb 16, 2017 5:22 PM Optimus Prime 4
                        But isn't all that factored into rents? Feb 16, 2017 5:40 PM EmoryBellard
                           Naw man. Landlords do that shit for free. Don't you know anything. Feb 16, 2017 6:27 PM TBagger
                              You got any places coming open, boss? Feb 16, 2017 6:32 PM EmoryBellard
                        Every dollar paid in rent is lost money Feb 21, 2017 9:50 AM DiamondReb
                           Everything in this post is objectively false Feb 21, 2017 10:51 AM HighLifeRebel

                              Citation Needed* Here's an example for fun: Feb 21, 2017 12:31 PM Kudzu
                                 For argument's sake Feb 21, 2017 12:43 PM Rebels7
                                    Your profit is in the fact that you didn't pay inflated rental expense throughout the term of the arrangement Feb 21, 2017 1:31 PM Kudzu
                                 I don't think anyone is arguing owning is usually good over 20 years. It's the 5ish years that we are debating Feb 21, 2017 1:31 PM Optimus Prime 4
      I doubt you are a dumb mofo Feb 16, 2017 1:45 PM OBRebel84
         With the extreme cost of buying and selling, you need to stay for 10 years to be sure it will work out Feb 16, 2017 1:54 PM Optimus Prime 4
         It's not about making money. That's not what a house does. They're not designed... Feb 16, 2017 2:19 PM VictoryRed
            Your house payment is significantly less than rent? How does that work? Feb 16, 2017 2:24 PM Optimus Prime 4
               The house I last owned was just under $1100 a month. Feb 16, 2017 2:33 PM VictoryRed
      It depends, but usually renting is better. Feb 17, 2017 10:07 PM HighLifeRebel
