Searching for an Affordable House
So I am trying to figure out how much money I would need to put a down payment on a house. Of course I am not talking about the sort of home you would need if you had a wife and three kids. It is just me by myself, although I was thinking that perhaps if I got a good deal, perhaps I could rent out a room to a suitable tenant. That would fit in with the lean finance plan I have been using to try to save up money. For well over a year I have been focused on saving my money and to that end I have been putting aside a lot of my favorite things. It is pretty hard to keep a girlfriend when you are really trying to not spend any money obviously. A lot of girls expect you to pay for everything when you take them out and it makes sense so long as you are the one who is chasing the girl. They know what the game is and it is tilted to their favor.
At any rate I have enough money to start looking, but if I was going to buy a house right now it would need to be something that was less than ideal. That means one of two things, although they are not mutually exclusive. It is either a house that needs to have a lot of work done to it, or one which is in a bad area of town. Of course the cheapest houses would be if you had a real derelict house in a slum. That is not what I want, I want to live some place where the neighbors all behave themselves in a polite way. The house can need work done to it though.
