Sad to say that's not very hard these days. I bought a running C4 on Craigslist for $3,500 - cheap enough that I thought it was a scam, but no, it was just a beater C4 and they're not worth all that much money right now. What I'm wondering is how he managed to buy that house he's showing in his sig. No wonder those "subprime lenders" are in trouble...

Or maybe he still lives with his parents.

How much do you think that house cost in NE. Probably $150,000. His mortgage is less than rent up here could ever be.

Nah, the land is probably cheap, but it still costs a lot to build a house like that. I'd say 250k minimum. Figuring 220k for the house and 30k for the land.

Actually, I just looked at it again. That driveway was very expensive. So I'm low.

That's not a $150k house anywhere. Please stop whining about NOVA living costs; it's not like everywhere else is the cost of TX.

I have ~2300 sqft on 1.5 acres, last I looked I think I had 187k in it (156 purchase + 31 in renovations). It appraised at 250k. The house a couple doors down is for sale, if you're lookin. It's on .75 acres I think and is low 200's.

While that does sound reasonable, **** if I want to live 1.5-2 hrs from downtown for my daily commute.

yeah, if you go in peak traffic it can definitely be 2 hours or more. when I had an office in midtown (off peachtree st at 16th, diagonally across from the atlanta symphony and art center) I could get there in 45 minutes if I left by 6.

It probably doesn't cost any less than it would where I live, which is backwoods enough that they have a business on the town square that's a combination of restaurant, furniture store, and Dukes of Hazard museum. That house would easily go for twice that here.
