Something that I don't understand about 'renting' is why? Come up with a few hundred bucks for the down on an old mobile, fix it up as you go, all the while instead of paying rent you are building equity, after a few years, sell, and you have the down on a better place, and so on!

Holy crap, is this ever spam! :lol:

Because, Yogi... It's kinda hard to come up with a place to put your old mobile in the middle of the city, unless you have bought a $200,000 plot of land...

Lot's of mobile homes for sale which are already set up in communities. 'Low down or no-down'. Or homes in smaller out-lying towns. Sure some travel and inconvenience is involved, but the savings far out-weigh. I could have put my 'down' on a brand new condo or house in the city and carried a mortgage but instead opted to look around. I paid in full for my home in a small town, bought all the materials for a complete up-grade, do the work as I feel motivated, and work when I want to.

Any idea what kind of junk there is out there? :?

And... not everybody is able to do the work themselves. We are turning a 40 year old duplex into a single family home, and I can tell you it is a shitload of work to get it all up to code. I just spent $15,000 on kitchen materials... Doing all the work ourselves, from building the cabinets to the plumbing and wiring.
But, I finally have a functioning AND modern bathroom! (in the basement :lol: And it is the only one we have! :lol:)

Very good point. My annual property taxes and service fees are less than $400.00 per year!

Sure, there is lots of junk out there. Some, like mine was not, in my opinion 'livable' at the time I bought it. I lived in a holiday trailer for the first few months. The price reflected the condition! It has taken hard work and inconvenience to put it mildly. You know all about that B. The rewards though. The main reward though is that regardless of the economy or how my meagher investments do, I will always have a roof over my head and a place to call home!

If I could figure out how to attach more than one pic per post I would put a few here.
