Want to move

I want to move into my own home. I am living in an old apartment and want to buy my own home. I need an advice. Buying home through a broker is best or building up my own? According to me building up is better because I can build a home of my choice. What is your opinion?

Usually it's a good idea to buy a starter home before building your first. Where are you from?

My brother says that one has to build three houses till you get what you want. The first two for others, the third then will be good for yourself.
The first will be full of mistakes and things you'd do different. The second will be better but you still find things that can be improved after living in it for a while. The third one will be perfect.


I really thought quicksand was going to be a much bigger issue in my life when I was little

Buy your first home as far as you can afford, and utilize the most. Like previously stated you will find things you will not like and not like, and you can live in a first home buy for a few years or so and work on it to your likings. And whenever the housing market improves over time you can sell with a profit and get something a little better and what not... But buying a house, means you also buy hidden problems...

the person who builds the home usually sees the most equity in the sale of that home = a greater ROI

I built my very 1st house, sold it, I have since bought and lived in 2 existing homes.

I would really say it's personal preference. A builders model is another great option. They usually have some mid level upgrades and are priced to unload.
  • get a lawyer !!!!!
  • What is your knowledge base on homes and general construction?
  • Do you have the skill set to do any of the work yourself
  • Price point- how much can you spend
  • 20% overage and changes fund
  • to many points to list actually.....

Only pussies need a cardboard box. Real men tag meth hookers and sleep on a bench.

Im in the process of selling my house and buying another house. The house Im trying to buy is in pre forclosure. I figured I could score the house of my dreams at a decent discount and keep some poor schelpp who bought more then they could afford from trashing their credit with a foreclosure.

Fuck. Banks.

At this point I am about to walk away from both places and live in a box. I'll pass on the meth, but might consider some hookers.

OP, good luck. That is all.

Know the feeling, short sale buying isn't much better, the birds can keep the meth, but as far as the hookers, and cardboard box, it'll go good with my tent.. Different scenic views every day!!
