Was that a major selling point for the real estate agent? Really hope you phrased it that way

The 5 bedrooms and oversized garage. The peeing off the deck is about self discovery. Something only a MAN can appreciate..

So either your username is false advertising, or your neighbors are a long ways away.

It's $1,000

but $1,000 back in VD's time

I'm imagining he worked about 16 months to come up with that.

There is some sexy foliage that allows a little privacy in the springtime.

The Bronze Age killed his business model years down the road though.

In 2016 I bought a 1250 sq foot ranch style house for 175k.  It sits in the corner of 8 acres of woods. I  liked that it was well built in 1998. Good wooden windows. Dry basement. Upscale neighborhood (neighbors houses are 350k). 15 minutes to work. 10 minutes to downtown. I’ve put about 12-15k into remodeling and upgrades and Zillow estimates it around 210k, so it was a good investment. 

Really happy with the purchase. I love home ownership, but it’s not for everyone. I’m handy enough to do repairs and remodeling by myself and I enjoy it. I enjoy mowing the lawn on my zero turn. Love to do house automation stuff. I have hue lights, smart thermostat, smart tv all controlled by Alexa. 

Oh, and a beautiful 750 square foot garage

Im flabbergasted. 

Here in Seattle, I'd have to drop 500,000 to 600,000 for a starter home.

Your housing market went nuts like 3 years ago. No idea what happened. We had to do special exceptions on appraisals there because they couldn't keep up with the inflating house prices
