another option i just thought of, was to take the 20k DP money, get one of those no money down loans, and apply the 20k towards the sti. that would leave me about a year of payments left.
hrm... now i'm thinking of ways to make some money quick.
Casino run anyoone?
or, does anyone want to hold a $100 buy in hold'em game? I kick-ass at hold'em

either look for a cheaper house (preferably not yellow)
or look for a better job...
the only down side to buying a house in your position now is what if jobs go to shit in your area and you need to relocate for decent or better pay...
option 3 - start tuning/swapping on the side, it'll beat waiting tables...
tuning = fairly easy work, good money, and fun

maybe i should sell the sti and buy a reliable cheaper car... like a 2.5 RS or something for 10k...
bah, i don't want to do that either.
part time job at night? doing what? waiting tables? even if i make 300 more a month doing that, its really not even worth it. i'll have no time to do anything-- nor ENJOY the house cuz all im doing is sleeping in it.
ask for a raise? kinda hard now... we're in our slow season, and the money just isn't coming in. even if i get a 5k bump, thats still only like 250 more a month take home.

B, There is no money to be made off of that home.
Do yourself a favour and look into a new development. I mean brand new...like no grass yet. Look to spend around $160-$180K.
Stay at the home for 4-5 years...work & save.
After 4-5 years, pending on the condition of the CT market, turn around and sell the home for $275-300K+
This is what we did. Bought a brand new home for $255K, squatted for 6 years, and just sold the thing last month for $448K. We made hundreds of thousands of dollars in a stoopid amount of time.
Hell, as soon as our subdivision had sod layed and some minor landscaping, our house went up in value by $75K...no joke. Within one year.
Buy new. Wait. Price goes up after development has finished. Sell home. Collect profit. Put towards new home. Keep Sti
Just do your homework. Take into account what the CT market has to offer. Research recent trends and property values. Keep an eye on the market. And most important, be smart.
