Default New House

Well, I moved into my new house 2 weeks ago. It's in S. Arlington,TX.

It's 2470sq/ft, 2 story, 2.5 baths, 4 bedrooms, 1 study, 2 living areas, formal dining area (pool room now), a decent sized kitchen, and 2 car garage.

First, I decided to wash the Miata in the FREE car wash, you know, the bucket, water hose, in the driveway wash.

That is why it isn't painted. Needed a house first. I am SLOWLY working to complete my Miata. Hoping to be done by Halett 2008.

Everything that isn't red I got for free, so really can't complain. Besides, performance before looks!!

I have waited 12 yrs to get a house. I am 30, and been a renter since I was 18. It was on my list of "first things I want to do" when I bought it. It was AWESOME washing my car in MY driveway. I normally wouldn't bother washing it, as this was only the third time I had (owned it for over 1 1/2 yrs).

You paid only $121,500 for a house like that!

****! a house like that where I live would cost $900,000-$1.2 million.

I should move to Texas.

And here in Carlsbad, CA (San Diego county) it'd be even more.

Everybody says that, but I **** you not- it rained yesterday! Gotta be the third or fourth time this year, and they're predicting rainfall again, possibly as early as November.

Yea, a house like that goes for around 250K around here. 400K+ if it's 1 block north of the beach. 1M if it's on beach boulevard, although you wouldn't see a house that small on beach boulevard.

damn, even here in East TN, a house like that would be well over $150k. I'd venture to guess over $200, but i'm no real estate expert. And I thought I was moving away from high priced housing (originally from chicago). Even on my meager salary I could afford a $120k house like that Nice place man.

Man that is a good price, even for the area I'm in now you made out good. Cookeville,TN is super cheap to live and that price is right around what you would pay here for a similar house.
