  • I am officially a home OWE-er

    Yep, my girlfriend and I were approved for a mortgage on a large 2BR, 1 Bath condominium in Silver Spring, MD. Close to the metro and a lot of shopping, plus major highways and DC. We close in about 2 weeks.

                    I want to buy a house so bad because I feel renting is throwing money away at an alarming rate. think about it. Anyone who has ever rented could have easily put a down payment on a big house with the money they spent on rent over just 1 year.

                    Too bad I won't be able to buy a house for another 17 years though. it's pointless when you have to move every 3-4 years

                      Montgomery Blair HS is within 15 miles of my new place, yes. I'm further west.

                          If I'm not mistaken, you're a military man, so it probably doesn't make that much sense. Your best bet is to save as much as you can, so you can put a big down payment on your house in the future. Real estate prices in the DC area are disgustingly high. My gf and I make easily over $150k together, and we could only reasonably afford this condo. Our hope is to hold this property for the time being, then sell it when the real estate market recovers at a significant profit. We're close to the metro, DC, and major highways, and the building has a pool and gym on site. We're also working with Verizon to bring in Fios. Fios apparently adds 1-2% of value to homes these days. That will be awesome.

                            I'm closer to the Silver Spring Metro than anything else.
