Title: Vince Goodrum's "Fuck That Shit, I Got A Better Idea" Threads
Post by: Vince G, CSN MFT on June 25, 2016, 08:19:06 AM
Since I moved back to Greenville, I've been going to the laundromat spending about 20 bucks a week on clothes.  It gets a little expensive after awhile so I decided to buy a washer and dryer.  The least expensive set I could find was this Amana brand with practically no features.  With cords, dryer vent, delivery, disposal fees and taxes it came up to 900 bucks and delivery in a week??  Come on son

I don't think so.  I'm not some sucka MC who's going to spend that kind of money .   Here's how Vince Goodrum does business.  Went to a little known spot on the ghetto side outskirts of Greenville that a friend told me about.  No fancy signs or sales papers or any of that shit.

I walk in and the owner of this fine establishment comes out.  He doesn't have a shirt and tie, just a white t-shirt, jean, boots, and a sidearm in the back like in the event that some unwelcome visitors decide that they don't want to buy anything.  I give him a handshake and I tell him that I want a honest and square deal.  He says he's a fair man who's owned the place for almost 40 years and all of his products come with a warranty.  So I decide to look around

No kidding.

This is a man who claims to have $100,000 in stocks, jewels precious metals, owns franchisees, land, booming online businesses as well a full time job at a call center & is bitching about $900?

Melvin Goodrum owns himself daily, with his bragging. So dad that he doesn't see it before he presses 'post'.

So I look around and tell him that I need something that doesn't leak, doesn't squeak, and I could care less how many dents in it as long as it works.  So he shows me a Whirlpool washer and dryer.  Its got a few dents and it was a bit discolored but it was fine for what I needed.  After some talk, he gave both of them to me for 250 bucks with another 50 bucks for the cords, vents, and delivery by some guys working indy.  We shook hands on it, I dropped 15 Andrew Jackson's in his hand and that was it.  

These are the one's I bought.  They will be delivering my goods in a few hours on a pickup truck and will be  installed.   That's how business is done folks.  No credit card payments, no waiting a week, no bullshit

In his mind, Melvin Goodrum is not bragging or revealing how broke he is. he actually thinks that people will now think he's a frugal business tycoon that won't pay too much for anything.

It's the same reasoning why he'd take a pic like this & think he looks good enough to post it online.

Its been a while since there's been a montage thread up here.  The fact is that people are too busy trying to keep up with everyone else which is the real reason that the average American household has over 130k dollars of debt with little to no savings.  People live paycheck to paycheck in this country and are bound to their jobs.  A person getting fired is usually the breaking point for a mass shooting/suicide.  


Fact is that I spend my hard earned money wisely....no credit cards, no debt, no living check to check etc.  That's the benefits of frugal living within your means.   Just keeping it 100% for you Getbiggers.

Frugal living is a must when you make $10.45hr at a Verizon Call Center.

if you had the money, you wouldn't be hustling to buy used appliances. That's not frugal,that's poor.

I actually agree with you about spending wisely and limiting needles spending. we have had our dryer over 10 years, when it broke I fitted a new heating element and it was as good as new. I personally know people living for each pay and its a fucking mess, nothing more embarassing than someone saying they can't afford something till payday

I buy a lot of stuff on Craigslist too.  I simply felt that he had the best deal, its warrantied for any problems for 6 months, its being delivered the very same day, and if I bought the same models retail, they would have been 400 apiece.  These are Whirlpool Supreme Capacity Washers.  They have dents but they will be in a pantry closet so people won't notice or care.  I simply want to wash and dry my clothes.

HG Gregg summer special for 900.... ::)  Goodwill honestly has gotten expensive over the years and they sell some items for more than what you can get at Walmart or Target.  Greenville has some awesome indy thrift stores and the flea markets and strip are great around here especially White Horse flea market where I cut my teeth selling vitamins from my car back in 2000

Nothing wrong with scratch n dent.  I bought a new upright freezer a couple years ago for 50% less than the perfect model out in the front showroom.  Same warranty.  I'm hard pressed to even find the scratch and wouldn't matter anyway ~ it's out in the garage.


Those units look used  :-\ but with 6 mo. guarantee, delivered... doesn't seem like a bad deal

looks to me like you can get one of the upright ones for $300 or so.

http://www.walmart.com/search/search-ng.do?search_query=washer%20dryer

same as 100% post-tax RoE for every 15 weeks worth of gudrum's stinking sweat and skid marked clothes being washed in shared machines in the ghetto.

but he is such a great businessman, a 100% RoE in 15 weeks doesnt meet his hurdle.

Some tiny house owners install washer/dryer combination equipment. Hope you are able to find one of these discounted. Normally, they are pretty expensive.  If not, you may have to resort to a washboard and clothesline.

Can't live without a washer and dryer. I will say that the laundry mat is faster, but way less convenient. My washer broken a few months ago, and I had to wait a fucking week for it to be fixed. I went to a laundry mat and the dryers there dry heavy towel loads in 15 minutes!

Why buy a new unit from a reputable site for less money when you can truck on down to a ghetto & buy a used lower quality unit for more money?

That's not how a successful entrepreneur does business.

I actually agree with you about spending wisely and limiting needles spending. we have had our dryer over 10 years, when it broke I fitted a new heating element and it was as good as new. I personally know people living for each pay and its a fucking mess, nothing more embarassing than someone saying they can't afford something till payday

This. I mean, how much can you really spend on a washer and dryer? Are you going to buy one that is made out of gold? My friend and his wife make a good living. Combined, they make between 250-300K. They went out and purchased a decent washer and dryer. Could they have afforded a top of the line? Sure. But, the question is: Why? The ones they purchased work just fine. I can understand wanting a nice car and a nice house. But who really cares if you have a top of the line washer or dryer. Who are you going to show it off too?  ??? ???

His is washer/dryer combo.  Yours is just a washer.

Unless you can find a new dryer for under 70 bucks, you owe him an apology.

I believe this combo costs a bit under 3 grand.  Full wash / dry in about 36 minutes.   Worth the money, in my opinion.

In many cases, the features one wants are only available on higher end washers and dryers. For example, front loading washers are more expensive than top loading ones are. Front loading washers are less hard on your clothes, so they could ultimately save you money.

Craiglist is great but you are still buying from a private owner and can't be sure what you are getting. In this case, I'd definitely go with a private business that's been around for 40 years and gives a warranty. $250 for a washer and dryer is a great deal.

Here in Hawaii so many people are do it yourselfers because getting anything done cost a fortune here. My neighbor, who is a court reporter, replaced her own toilet and hauled it in her house and installed it herself. A gym buddy who is a cop and his wife a teacher (so they pull six figures easily a year) is painting their own house because of the savings. I was at City Mill, a local hardware store, and was talking to a guy who was doing repairs on some office space he just got. He said that the lowest bid he got to replace three walls and have it painted was 80 grand. 80 grand! You could buy a townhouse in some places on the mainland for that. All that he has left to do is paint and the total cost was 10 grand. The State wants to install some air condition in the classrooms because it gets so hot. The bids ranged from 20 to 40 grand PER CLASSROOM! One bid was as high as $135,000 PER CLASSROOM!

Sometimes it's not a question as to whether or not you have the money but getting the highest value for your dollar. If money doesn't matter to you and you can get whatever you want with little or no regard to cost then good for you. You are blessed. You should be grateful and count your blessings rather than put down others who want and need to stretch their dollar.

Front load vs top load do function differently.  Is one better than the other?  There are pros and cons to both.  I've had both and don't really notice a difference in cleaning capacity or gentleness on clothes.  The front loaders use WAY less water and soap which is supposed to be a cost savings, BUT the cycles take WAY longer and the HE soap is more expensive, so it's a wash IMO.  No need to buy special HE soap, just dilute regular in 1/2 and it does the same job.  Since I'm not on a city water system, it's preferable not to introduce excess soapy water into the ground water and septic system.  Drying a load seems to take just as long even though "they" say a front loader spins out more water.

A lot of fashion experts have one dirty secret - they have never, ever washed their jeans.

What’s more, experts at Vogue and Levi’s say that we should all follow suit.

The trend made headlines after Levi’s CEO Chip Bergh stood up and admitted that the (Levi’s) jeans he was wearing, ‘hadn’t seen the inside of a washing machine’ for a year.

But other fashionistas agree - saying that washing jeans ruins the garments’ shape and feel, especially if the jeans in question are unique, vintage ones.

Vince actually made the right choice here.  When dryers and washers are labeled "Economy" or something of the sort, they are made to last and will never break.  They are built tougher than electronic gimmickry.

A washer and dryer should be used for clothes sparingly if possible.  The dryer should definitely not be used much as that is what will destroy your clothes.  Hang dry in a climate controlled room for best results.  A dryer is hard on fibers, especially natural ones and will completely destroy some, even after one time.

A conservative approach is best.  Also, use the fucking labels in the clothes!  They are there for a reason.

I was a "guest" at a ranch near Blanco Tx. with a woman who irrigated her roses with her washing machine exhaust.  She related that the biological activity in the soil around the rose roots help decompose the detergent.  I have seen no research, but there are many septic systems that irrigate gardens with septic exhaust.

The only other person I trust with laundry is Jezebelle.  It is serious business.  Mexicans don't know how to read those charts.  I would only use their service if it was hand wash only.  Be careful.

You are not afraid that Jezebelle sees your boyfriend's cum on your clothes?

I still have a TV I bought almost 20 years ago that still works as good as the day I bought it. I'd like to see any of the TV's today last 20 years.

Time will tell. In the meantime, the resolution and features on newer flat screen TV's are far and above any of those on a TV as old as yours is.

When I recently replaced my 2004 Mazda, it was partly because the new car is loaded with features not available in cars that old. With almost 150,000 miles on it, it still ran perfectly as if new. There are many reasons to upgrade to newer products than how long it will last. Most vehicles in the 1950's didn't hold up for anywhere near 150,000 miles and they required a lot more maintenance, fuel and oil.

Included, but not free. You still paid for them. You just didn't realize it. Not only that, if you took out a mortgage on your house, you will likely end up paying much more for that used washer and dryer then it would have cost you for fancy new equipment.

It is pretty simple really. The seller included appliances with the sale and as part of the purchase price, which they've raised to compensate for the inclusion. When you take out a thirty year mortgage, you spread  however much you indirectly paid for these appliances over those thirty years. If you've had/have a mortgage you already know that you pay more in interest each month than you do on the principle for the first 15 years. So if the seller added $1,000 to the home's sales price to cover the "gift" of the washer and dryer, you will pay $574.96 in interest on them, making the total cost for the washer and dryer $1,574.96. In addition to this, you will be paying for them long after they went to the junkyard, considering most appliances last only 10 to 15 years.

the washer and dryer (and for that matter the refrigerator) are chattel and not included in the price of the house and definitely not given any value in an appraisal and therefore not a single dollar of my mortgage was allocated or even had an imputed value for the washer and dryer.

The seller could have removed them but chose not to

simple and totally wrong

chattel is not given any value in an appraisal and mortgage lenders don't lend on appliances.
If you want to purchase appliances from the seller you do that separately and pay for them in cash

In my case the seller left them there (likely because he didn't want them as I had been leasing the house from him for a year prior to purchase and he had already moved to a new home)

In the legal sense you are correct. Realistically, the seller can include chattel in the price he asks for the real estate/property as long as it is not identified as such. I seriously doubt these items would affect the appraisal unless they are gold plated or the property in incredibly cheap.

If it were included on a contract the lender would specifically ask the appraiser to comment on whether it was given any value and if so it would be deducted from the appraised value (and of course no competent appraiser is going to say he included chattel in an appraised value of real property)

Also, I know my transaction (I knew the seller) and purchased the property at less than market value (slightly -based on the current comps at that time) and the seller also gave me a credit to replace the carpets so I'm pretty sure the old washer and dryer in the garage (worth maybe $300 at that time which was 13 years ago) were not imputed into my purchase price

They also damn sure weren't part of my mortgage so your premise that I  "likely ended up paying much more for that used washer and dryer then it would have cost you for fancy new equipment" is total nonsense

What one likes or doesn't like about how a car looks is subjective. What you see as ugly, others view as attractive or interesting.

My car is not my status symbol. What is important is how it drives, whether or not it is comfortable and for some, the level of technology. From an appearance standpoint, the interior aesthetics mean more to me because this is what I see when I am driving my car. The perforated leather and suede seats are very comfortable. The display/touch screen is fairly large and very interactive providing a multitude of features. Unlike you, I appreciate the compact and muscular appearance the exterior has. Other folks must too, because they often compliment the car.

So I look around and tell him that I need something that doesn't leak, doesn't squeak, and I could care less how many dents in it as long as it works.  So he shows me a Whirlpool washer and dryer.  Its got a few dents and it was a bit discolored but it was fine for what I needed.  After some talk, he gave both of them to me for 250 bucks with another 50 bucks for the cords, vents, and delivery by some guys working indy.  We shook hands on it, I dropped 15 Andrew Jackson's in his hand and that was it.  

These are the one's I bought.  They will be delivering my goods in a few hours on a pickup truck and will be  installed.   That's how business is done folks.  No credit card payments, no waiting a week, no bullshit

Basically, you bought a used washer and dryer on clearance (which I did about 14 years ago, shortly after I got married). You can do that at department store. I got my washer from Sears (the only issue with the washer was that the temperature setting was backward....cold was hot and hot was cold; no issue with the dryer).

My credit is great and I do have one Capital One card that I keep for emergencies but I simply like buying everything cash.  I'll finance only when its a wise investment.  

What I've found is that when people have credit cards, they have a false sense of actual wealth and will spend it haphazardly.  Then they can only pay the minimum fees which basically doesn't pay down the interest and keeps them  as indentured servants.  I not a sucka mc that falls for bank gimmicks

Yeah, but if you use the Capital One rewards card  for ONLY what you have the cash for, and pay it on time, you get the rewards.   I have thousands in CC "relief" for whenever I want from doing this.

It's free money.

Yeah, but if you use the Capital One rewards card  for ONLY what you have the cash for, and pay it on time, you get the rewards.   I have thousands in CC "relief" for whenever I want from doing this.

It's free money.

yep

I pay the card off monthly so never pay any interest or fees (my card is with Wells Fargo) and every few years I just cash in the points.  The last time I did this it was a bit over $700

My credit is great and I do have one Capital One card that I keep for emergencies but I simply like buying everything cash.  I'll finance only when its a wise investment.  

What I've found is that when people have credit cards, they have a false sense of actual wealth and will spend it haphazardly.  Then they can only pay the minimum fees which basically doesn't pay down the interest and keeps them  as indentured servants.  I not a sucka mc that falls for bank gimmicks

Gonna have to call bs. I agree it's best to use cash and smart to avoid credit cards but I must call bs when you say your credit is great. It may be great in the sense you are not in debt but if you do not use credit as you stated, then your score will not be great. It won't be bad but it won't be great. One must use credit to build the score.

I was going to get one from Lowes when I was still working there because there was two top of the line front load washer and dryer that was returned.  Its was 1000 for both but I wanted to make sure I had enough money to move back to Greenville.  I'm a cash only person so it makes a huge difference

You're a cash only person who didn't think he had enough money for a $1000 move?

HOW POOR ARE YOU?

They brag that they're 'cash only' people, but they do it out of necessity.

If you're a mature and responsible individual, I have zero idea why you would choose the mega-hassle of using cash money for all transactions. I essentially never use paper money. I have the same two 20s in my wallet that were there, like, sometime last year.

Weekly I log onto my bank account and pay my balance to zero.

I understand that Goodrum is a genius in every since of the word and a millionaire,  but he insisted he can't trust himself with a few credit cards.  :-\ that's not the best thing but he is a millionare, so, I guess credit does not apply to Vince Goodrum, MCT, HH, Genius, etc,.. But one must use credit to have a good credit score. I have two that I put $25 on every month, pay the bill off and don't think shit about it.

Face it, you just owned yourself by revealing that you have no credit or even a credit card.

Anyone who runs a business uses a card as much as possible for the cash back, it makes no businesses sense not to.

Since you claim to have 100000s successful businesses, how do you pay the bills? By cash or check?

Why pay by check when you can pay by card, get the rewards & immediately pay it off?

But since you don't have, & never have had a successful business, you wouldn't know these things....life coach!!!!!!

If Vince was smart, he would have at least lied an said that he uses cash on bigger purchases because he can negotiate a CASH discount i.e. a % discount for NOT using plastic.  Lost of small businesses offer this since their processing charges are sometimes higher.

You don't use a credit card because you have no credit. You're a life time minimum wager with nothing but the clothes on his back & a suitcase full of pipe dreams that never materialize.

You don't like being caught in lies & having your BS pointed out. That's why you run & hide & the best you used to be able to do was make 'yo mamma' comebacks.

Middle aged, obese, bald, working at a call center for $10.45hr & your only salvation is making up lies on BB msg boards about how successful you are.

Credit cards, when well managed, help increase one's credit rating/score. A high score often insures a lower APR. This is advantageous when purchasing big ticket items, such as a house or a car. I use my credit and debit cards all the time. I pay off any credit card purchases each month, thus avoiding credit card interest altogether. You are right about online shopping for sure, if you use an American Express or Visa card for online purchases and something goes amiss with a purchase, you can dispute it and very often get the charges removed. This does not work with debit cards. I track purchases better with a debit card as opposed to cash. It's good to know where your money is going.

I've been pretty fortunate buying online.  No issues of things not arriving or excessive/suspect charges.

I'm not a credit guy when it comes to big stuff either.  I still haven't bought my property  :-\ so maybe there's something to be said for taking on some debt and having nice things instead of living like a character from Fight Club.  But I wasn't sure I was staying in Aus, renting was cheaper than interest repayments alone on a usual mortgage around the city, I thought the market was topped out and was gonna fall (and was wrong for a long time), don't like banks or the idea of asking them for money, not sure I actually like the idea of being established, etc.  My biggest regret is that my dog died and I didn't have a place to bury him lol but it's probably for the best anyway.  Still might buy land if the price is right, and it's finally getting that way, but am not terribly enthused about the idea of roots in any particular area.  I should tho.  Guess you have to pick a place to plant yourself sooner or later and it's sure getting later.

I love machinery auctions but my impression is that in the US you'd do better with a private sale when it comes to vehicles.  Possibly.  Either way, do some googling V.  Acquaint yourself with how to assess viability.  Owning used vehicles means being at least 1/2 a mechanic.  If you don't like greasy fingers then you're better off paying for the guarantee and known history of a new car.  Mechanics fees, tows, and lost income from downtime will add up fast if you buy someone else's problem.  There's probably no test driving but I wouldn't buy anything if they won't let you crawl around on it and under it, start it, and put each gear under power for a couple inches.

Imo you shouldn't buy anything, no matter how good a deal you think it is, until you've attended and quietly observed a few of these shindigs.  I'd gravitate toward things I can work on - a minimum of computerization and a manual transmission.  I can't be too clear here - you're gonna work on it, which means tools and time, or you're gonna pay someone to work on it.

Ugly & strong is what you want.  People fling money at complete lemons if the paint is nice.  Fresh paint is a red flag.  I've seen trucks with freshly painted undersides that clearly came from salt country.  Vendors will pull some dirty shit.  Fleet/ government vehicles are good to look at since they're often swapped out at an age/mileage limit and come from a regular maintenance regiment, but there ought to be a fleet of them there at similar age - not just 1.  Individuals rarely undertake preventative maintenance at recommended intervals so maintenance logs are nice but rare, and perhaps not entirely to be trusted.  Badging means nothing.  Bling is the enemy.  You'll see bidding wars for a mercedes or jaguar with a mahogany dash and fucked engine when the rock-bottom model ford with a scratch that got clockwork oil changes can be had with minimal competition.

IA that the cat auction off of 85 going towards Simpsonville or Greenville?  ??? If so, save your cash and head to the motor mile, Greer, Spartanburg and just take 15 grand cash and you'll be aight.

Avoid that car auction off of 85 if you can.  :)

A quick google reveals that I'm as uninformed as ever.  It wasn't timing chains themselves.  Just tensioners and guides which caused the 'uh, hi, can you bring your car back? Soon?  There's... something we have to do to it."

I'm sure they went back to steel metal of some kind by now but I have a hard time forgiving companies that make decisions like that on a supposedly premium quality product.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0TuxQxwL2WA


"... because there are no timing marks on this engine."

Again, fucking why?!  Why would anyone do that?  And what are they going to charge for the piece of milled ali with the top secret dimensions?

I know a BMW mechanic who quit his job because he said he didn't want to be a computer programmer.  I question whether top end vehicles are any better at all on the metallurgy and machining tolerances side of things, or if they're just doing their best to make things inaccessible to anyone but a team of full time, company specific technicians.

Btw, if there are any shit-hot programmers out there, I got the impression there'd be money in creating software that would mediate (I'm totally out of my depth here) between each year's software and the 'mechanic.'  To hear that guy tell it, every year had a unique programming, and mechanics had to learn all of them.  And 9/10 problems were computer issues exclusively, or involved computer issues.  Not that there'd be any money for you from BMW tho for making their unnecessarily complicated shit accessible to someone other than a $250/hr dealership service department.

I traded my car in with the garage when I bought my new car, they gave me £600 without even looking at it, they just send them to auction and get whatever they can, likely way less than he gave me, they make their money on the new car.

Always wanted a Jag. Sat in one several years back. It was uncomfortable. This damped my desire for one. However, the 2016 XJ is a beauty. I'll stick with my Madza CX3 for now. I like it's funky appearance which belies all it's bells and whistles. It almost drives itself.

New engine...  Be sure to look at the cooling system, V.  Guessing it's a diesel.  My SOP is do all fluids & filters, including transmission and diffs.  Grease.  Valve clearance adjust maybe.  Belts inspect.  Load test battery or at least confirm it's holding voltage after 24 hrs and charges when running.  Good luck with it.

Cooling system's fine.  Surprisingly, its a 4L gasoline.  Belts are new.  Battery is fair but cranks it and holds a charge.  AC needs freon....trickles out a little cold....lol.   Stereo system is brand new and was playing some country music.  

Ultimately, when it comes to an auction, you never know what you're getting into so its always a risk.  Car auctions are the roughest as dealers will stare you down and intimidate you.  But you gotta hold your shit and do the damn thing.

I'll drive it to Fisher's Garage, have it checked out and fix whatever and then have it painted.  It'll look purdy.

Cooling system's fine.  Surprisingly, its a 4L gasoline.  Belts are new.  Battery is fair but cranks it and holds a charge.  AC needs freon....trickles out a little cold....lol.   Stereo system is brand new and was playing some country music.  

Ultimately, when it comes to an auction, you never know what you're getting into so its always a risk.  Car auctions are the roughest as dealers will stare you down and intimidate you.  But you gotta hold your shit and do the damn thing.

I'll drive it to Fisher's Garage, have it checked out and fix whatever and then have it painted.  It'll look purdy.

You're going to get it painted? That will cost as much as the vehicle.

What dealer was trying to stare you down Vince, that's a form of bullying, which is illegal in nearly all middle and high schools so I think it's safe to assume that applies to public auto auctions as well.

A dealer showed up to a public auto auction and tried to out bid you on a 20 year old suv..... they run those different in North Carolina.

Dude, just spend 300 dollars and Plastidip it yourself.  It will look brand new and you can pick many badass colors.  Really easy to do yourself in an afternoon.

1125 for a 95 cherokee is an average deal, especially with shitty paint. I've seen a fair amount go for under a grand in private sales. an xj is a decent choice though looked after ones go forever but they can nickel and dime you with all the little stuff if youre not careful. generally id never buy anything american except a classic or something made in the last say 5 years.

The last 4 cars ive bought have been private sales, and none of them have been duds because I bought them from people I trusted and knew. The key to buying a used vehicle is to know the previous owner. 3 of those cars I didnt even have to test drive to know they were solid and well looked after. currently I have a 1995 nissan s14 and its excellent with 113k on it. None of that computer crap going on, just a basic 2.4l 4 pot dual cam rwd coupe with a 5 speed; perfect fun daily driver and decent on gas too.

key to buying a reliable daily driver is to buy a 90s jap car with a 4 cyl motor; who cares if its not brand new or super fast its never going to die parts are cheap and everywhere you can fix it yourself and it will get ridiculous mileage especially with a 5 speed. its essential part of life to be able to buy a good used vehicle, and as an intelligent adult theres no excuse to not educate yoruself on how to go about this.

Definitely...I can get about 2400 for it if I put it in the I Wanna.  But for now it's going to make money so I need it to look good.  Plastidip actually sounds like a good idea though.  With a few touchups...its a 3000 dollar vehicle

Pictures coming soon, Getbiggers.  Will be back down next time to snatch up a car.     

never knew you could get one of those with a cherokee

I think it's best to lease cars for 2-3 years. One of the few joys in life when you reach a certain age is a new car. If you have 2 cars on lease you can work it out so you're getting a new one every year or so. You also avoid having to deal with repairs when things start to wear out and the embarrassment of driving around in an old POS

You're not good at math are you??  The engine and the transmission by itself in the jeep is worth about 600 bucks more than I paid for it as they are brand new.  I can part it out and make money if I wanted to.  

There is a risk at purchasing at the auction but more benefits.  The vehicle is paid for.  I added it to my insurance policy which added just an additional 55.00 dollars to my 6 month policy....less than 10 bucks a month because I don't need collision with making payments on a vehicle.  In addition, its a Jeep Cherokee Sport, so you can drive anywhere with it...in the woods, hills, etc so there are people that will buy it for hunting season.


Best of all, it makes an epic thread on Getbig.  I normally would not have purchased this vehicle, usually I get cars like Hondas and Toyotas because I can buy them for about 200 and sell them for a quick turnaround.  But if I didn't buy anything, it would have ruined my thread.

Oh yea.  I don't do it that much.  Mostly do estate auctions and flea markets.  But the game plan is to fix it up, clean it out real good, and use it for hauling goods for the tax write-off.  Afterwards, it'll get sold for profit although depending on how it looks when I finish it, I may just keep it.  I still need to get a cruising car but we'll work on that in a few weeks.

I think it's best to lease cars for 2-3 years. One of the few joys in life when you reach a certain age is a new car. If you have 2 cars on lease you can work it out so you're getting a new one every year or so. You also avoid having to deal with repairs when things start to wear out and the embarrassment of driving around in an old POS
All that money goes down the toilet though and you have jack shit to show for it.  :-\

I hope this works out for you. Junkers that cost what you paid are rarely a good deal. You do realize that jeep you bought is over 30 years old. What's the usual lifespan of an automobile? Like I said, I wish you well with your purchase.
No such thing as "lifespan of a car".  I used to drive a 1959 Cadillac as a daily driver.  If you take care of a car, it will outlive you.  Unless you buy plastic Mazdas that look like Micro-Penises with wheels.

That Inline 4.0 looks VERY clean.

I know that engine well.  My very first car was a brand new Jeep Wrangler with that 4.0 in it.  I put a chip in it and exhaust and used to take out Ford Mustang 5.0s all the time in it.  Even had it lifted with 33 inch tires, Warn 9000 winch, Black Diamond shocks, military leaf springs and Diamond Plate on the entire rear.  I used to take it to Uwharrhie and ride the trails.  I would skip school some times and go out there all day off-road.  Some of the most fun I ever had!  

That engine will last forever and was updated solidly from the 50s and on, using pretty much the same layout.  They don't build cars correctly anymore at all in my opinion.

They build cars not to own anymore, but for morons looking to lease-  Throwaway society.

Good job Vince.  I miss my Jeep!

Actually, it won't be at all.  Its a solid car with a solid engine.  One of the best cars Chrysler has ever produced and certainly better than what most manufacturers make today.

Owned yourself fixing things?  You think learning how to actually do something, a skill, is a waste?  Strange.  No wonder why everyone is so helpless these days.

Furthermore, leasing is what a certain group of people like to do and now its seems its trickled over to people like you even.  Sad!  All those payments with nothing to show for it.  Do you tell people that its your car?  Its not.  Leasing is more embarrassing than actually owning a cheap car.  At least to me it is anyways.

Fixing a car up can be fun if it's a car you have on the side.

For a daily beater not so much. And there is not much "to show for" in an old car even if you replaced most parts on it. Other than an old car that you have to replace further more parts on eventually.

I lease a car, I pay a monthly fee for 2 years then take it back and change it for a new one, trouble free motoring, its not my car, so what, im glad its not, any repairs all done under warranty
As for nothing to show for it, so what, all cars depreciate to zero eventually.

When you lease you are the registered "owner" although title remains in the hands of the financing company.

No, you are registered with the DMV. You never actually own it.

When you buy a car, after it is paid for, you get the title. Then you have something you can turn around and sell and perhaps have some value in.

Leasing never does that. I find leasing cars only valuable if you are the type of person who never pays off anything in the first place. If you are always wanting the next new car, then it's fine.

If you are not that type, it is pointless.

OlympiaGym will probably try to preach to you now about "fiscal responsibility" and how to save conservatively.  Oh brother, what a hypocrite.  ::)

Whenever I see someone, (who obviously does not own the car they pretend in) I laugh.  Youtube morons are filled with it.  You have some of them "leasing" Lamborghinis even. ALL of their money going to a 1 or 2 year lease, fronting and pretending.  Its hilarious.

It also inflates the price of the car for a REAL buyer who wants to actually OWN the thing.  Pathetic!  These people have ruined society and caused runaway inflation big time.  Practices like this make for a throwaway society instead of a fiscally conservative savings society.

Look at OlympiasGym.  His response was, "I will just make more money", "Acquiring Things" driving LEASED cars give him meaning in life. Sad!

Big hat, no cattle.  They ruin it all for the rest of us.  Inflation sucks.

Why are you taking your own financial decision so personal?

You were trying to bag on Vince for buying a car outright, which is about the most fiscally conservative thing one can do, as well as environmentally responsible.  No reason to throw away perfectly usable cars at all.  Cars that were better built than the garbage leases today that do nothing but cause inflation due to lack of ownership.

San Francisco is a good example of this.  You pay an arm and a leg to live like a termite in a box that you don't even own because nobody owns anything and the price is inflated as a result.  Its disgusting and not sustainable in the long run, unless you enjoy being a termite or a transient I suppose.

Anyways, why are you arguing in this manner?  You were trying to brag about leasing.  I just don't think its something to brag about really.

Yep and it ruins it for people who would rather own because it drives inflation through the roof.

Same thing happened with houses and the whole housing crisis and it still remains.  Its a ridiculous practice really.  

Driving an Audi or BMW or even a Lamborghini as these youtubers do for a year or month to month lease means absolutely nothing anymore.  It used to mean something.  Now any schmuck can pretty much be behind the wheel of a supercar or car that costs 5 times more than their house.

San Francisco is a good example of this.  You pay an arm and a leg to live like a termite in a box that you don't even own because nobody owns anything and the price is inflated as a result.  Its disgusting and not sustainable in the long run, unless you enjoy being a termite or a transient I suppose.

Anyways, why are you arguing in this manner?  You were trying to brag about leasing.  I just don't think its something to brag about really.

Agreed.

I don't see it as anything bad or special. I think Vince's cash purchase was a good one.

ROFLMAO!!!!!

OlympiaGym will probably try to preach to you now about "fiscal responsibility" and how to save conservatively.  Oh brother, what a hypocrite.  ::)

Whenever I see someone, (who obviously does not own the car they pretend in) I laugh.  Youtube morons are filled with it.  You have some of them "leasing" Lamborghinis even. ALL of their money going to a 1 or 2 year lease, fronting and pretending.  Its hilarious.

It also inflates the price of the car for a REAL buyer who wants to actually OWN the thing.  Pathetic!  These people have ruined society and caused runaway inflation big time.  Practices like this make for a throwaway society instead of a fiscally conservative savings society.

Look at OlympiasGym.  His response was, "I will just make more money", "Acquiring Things" driving LEASED cars give him meaning in life. Sad!

Big hat, no cattle.  They ruin it all for the rest of us.  Inflation sucks.

this.

I actually respect Vince for being tighter with his money than a Jewish grandmother from Scotland

Ownership is a literal thing.

You NEVER own a leased car.

I own my car because I paid for it. So yes. It's a literal statement.

You aren't the owner. You are the authorized driver. They are not the same.

If you run someone over with your leased car you will be deemed the "owner" for purposes of a civil suit. Federal law protects the leasing companies from liability. Society is a little more sophisticated than you might imagine

No, you are registered with the DMV. You never actually own it.

When you buy a car, after it is paid for, you get the title. Then you have something you can turn around and sell and perhaps have some value in.

Leasing never does that. I find leasing cars only valuable if you are the type of person who never pays off anything in the first place. If you are always wanting the next new car, then it's fine.

If you are not that type, it is pointless.
But I will never drive a car that is older than 2 years, you buy a car and you could be stuck with a heap of shit.
Even buying a car outright if something goes wrong, sure a new car has a warranty but the will kick and scream and try and offload the cost to you if something goes wrong
Mine goes wrong, they dispute anything, I chuck them the keys and walk.

You're not good at math are you??  The engine and the transmission by itself in the jeep is worth about 600 bucks more than I paid for it as they are brand new.  I can part it out and make money if I wanted to.  

There is a risk at purchasing at the auction but more benefits.  The vehicle is paid for.  I added it to my insurance policy which added just an additional 55.00 dollars to my 6 month policy....less than 10 bucks a month because I don't need collision with making payments on a vehicle.  In addition, its a Jeep Cherokee Sport, so you can drive anywhere with it...in the woods, hills, etc so there are people that will buy it for hunting season.


Best of all, it makes an epic thread on Getbig.  I normally would not have purchased this vehicle, usually I get cars like Hondas and Toyotas because I can buy them for about 200 and sell them for a quick turnaround.  But if I didn't buy anything, it would have ruined my thread.

It appears that you made this decision carefully and that you are happy with the purchase. That's all that counts when all is said and done.

I thought I was proficient in math until I tried to make you Jeep 10 years older than it is.  :-[

Yes, this tread is epic, much like most all of your threads. Keep up the good work.

Another reason why build quality and quality control will continue to degrade and suck.  They know people will line up for leases, so why bother making quality anymore?  Just design it cheap to be replaced with cheap parts so the temporary driver can chuck the keys whenever something goes wrong (you are expecting it anyways).

Same thing happening with housing and everything else.  Standards are dropping, people don't have pride in ownership of anything anymore so why bother to build anything of quality?  Society will get what it deserves.

No such thing as "lifespan of a car".  I used to drive a 1959 Cadillac as a daily driver.  If you take care of a car, it will outlive you.  Unless you buy plastic Mazdas that look like Micro-Penises with wheels.

You are right about the plastic. I don't see the penis comparison though.

 Home ownership in England at lowest level in 30 years as housing crisis grows

Calls for government to build more homes as growing gap between earnings and house prices sees ownership fall across the country and people forced to rent

Home ownership in England has fallen to its lowest level in 30 years as the growing gap between earnings and property prices has created a housing crisis that extends beyond London to cities including Manchester.

The struggle to get on the housing ladder is not just a feature of the London property market, according to a new report by the Resolution Foundation thinktank, with Greater Manchester seeing as big a slump in ownership since its peak in the early 2000s as parts of the capital, and cities in Yorkshire and the West Midlands also seeing sharp drops.
'Home ownership is unrealistic': five readers on England's housing crisis
Read more

Home ownership across England reached a peak in April 2003, when 71% of households owned their home, either outright or with a mortgage, but by February this year the figure had fallen to 64%, the Resolution Foundation said.

The figure is the lowest since 1986, when home ownership levels were on the way up, with a housing market boom fuelled by the deregulation of the mortgage industry and the introduction of the right-to-buy policy for council homes by Margaret Thatcher’s Conservative government.

The Resolution Foundation’s analysis highlights the scale of the job faced by the prime minister, Theresa May, who has pledged to tackle the housing deficit. May warned last month that unless the issue was dealt with “young people will find it even harder to afford their own home. The divide between those who inherit wealth and those who don’t will become more pronounced. And more and more of the country’s money will go into expensive housing.”

The report, based on analysis of the latest Labour Force Survey, showed that in early 2016 only 58% of households in Greater Manchester were homeowners, compared with a peak of 72% in 2003. In outer London, the peak in ownership came earlier, in 2000, but the fall was also from 72% then to 58% in February. The West Midlands and Yorkshire have also seen double-digit drops, driven by declines in Sheffield and Leeds.

Stephen Clarke, policy analyst at the Resolution Foundation, said: “London has a well-known and fully blown housing crisis but the struggle to buy a home is just as big a problem in cities across the north of England.”
The stories you need to read, in one handy email

In the early years of the millennium, homeownership levels rose as buyers able to take out mortgages with no deposit scrambled to get on the ladder before prices became unaffordable. At that point the average cost of a UK property was £122,748 and growing at a rate of 20% a year, according to Nationwide Building Society, and banks and building societies were keen to lend.

But numbers started to drop as properties became less affordable and the downward trend continued as the housing market crashed after the credit crunch in 2008. The return of mortgages for borrowers with small deposits has brought first-time buyers back to the market, but the analysis underlines how great the struggle is to meet today’s new high house prices. According to Nationwide, the UK average had risen to £196,930 in February – a 60% increase in 13 years.

Lindsay Judge, an expert on housing at the thinktank, said the problem was one of affordability. “House prices began to outpace earnings in the early 2000s,” Judge said. “When the market fell so did earnings – house prices began to come down but so did people’s pay, or it was stagnating at best, so few people were able to make the most of falling prices.”

The analysis showed that across England levels of private renting almost doubled from 11% in 2003 to 19% in 2015, while in Greater Manchester the figure more than trebled, from 6% to 20%.

The Resolution Foundation said this shift in tenure could mean problems in the future, as individuals would need to find a way of funding their housing in retirement, or may need to turn to the benefits system for help. Clarke said: “The shift to renting privately can reduce current living standards and future wealth, with implications for individuals and the state. We cannot allow other cities to edge towards the kind of housing crisis that London has been saddled with.”

Anne Baxendale, head of policy and public affairs at the housing charity Shelter, said house prices were now “completely out of step with average wages”.

She added: “Sky-high rents are leaving many families struggling to make ends meet each month, let alone save up enough for the deposit on a home. Far from being the stepping stone it once was, many young people and families are now facing a lifetime stuck in expensive and unstable private renting.

“The new government has a real chance to give hope back to these families by tackling the root cause of the housing crisis and building genuinely affordable homes that people on ordinary incomes can actually afford to rent or buy.”

Dan Wilson-Craw, policy manager at the campaign group Generation Rent, said saving up for a deposit was becoming harder for would-be homeowners, especially those in insecure work. “Renting in the private sector is the only option for many, and 12-month contracts mean their homes are insecure too,” he said. “Everyone needs a stable home, whether or not they can afford to buy, so the government must look at reforming tenancy law.”

Grahame Morris, Labour’s shadow secretary of state for communities, said the research showed the government had failed to deliver on its promise to build homes. “Building more homes is part of the solution that involves increasing the housing mix we need to deal with the chronic housing crisis we face today,” he said. “The report highlights that we have the lowest level of new builds for generations. At the same time more and more people are being forced into the private rented sector, paying higher rents with little protection from unscrupulous landlords.”

The Department for Communities and Local Government said more than 300,000 people had been helped into homeownership through government-backed schemes since 2010.

“On top of this, latest figures show that for the first time in 20 years, first-time buyers have borrowed more than home movers,” a spokesman said. “However, we know there is more to do, which is why we’ve set out the most ambitious vision for housing in a generation, including delivering hundreds of thousands of homes exclusively for first-time buyers.”

As for nothing to show for it, so what, all cars depreciate to zero eventually.

There are a few downsides to leasing. Whether it is better to lease or buy depends on a variety of things.

When you lease you are the registered "owner" although title remains in the hands of the financing company.

What's the value of being the registered owner? The lessor has conditions the lessee must adhere to or pay extra. Most lease contracts limit the mileage. You pay for any repairs that exceed normal wear and tear.

http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/2012/12/buying-vs-leasing-basics/index.htm (http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/2012/12/buying-vs-leasing-basics/index.htm)

Looks like they don't advocate leasing.  From the article:

Does it make sense to lease?

The financial workings of leasing are so confusing that people don’t realize that leasing invariably costs more than an equivalent loan. And even if they did, the extra cost is difficult to calculate. Still, many people can’t afford the higher payments of a typical loan, at least not without putting a substantial amount down. If payments are an issue, consider buying a lower-cost vehicle or a reliable used car.

Opting for a longer-term loan of, for example, six years, could result in roughly the same low monthly payments as a three-year lease. But longer loans make it easier to get “upside down” on your loan, where you owe more than the vehicle is worth. So, if you decide to get rid of the car early on or if it’s destroyed or stolen—the trade-in, resale, or insurance value likely will be less than you still owe on the loan. Indeed, if you want to drive a new car every cou­ple of years, taking out a long-term loan but trading in early will leave you hav­ing paid so much in finance charges compared to principal, that you might as well have leased. If you can’t pay off the difference on an upside-down loan, you can often roll the amount you still owe into the new loan. You end up financing both the new car and the remainder of your old car.

If you decide on a long-term loan, hold on to the vehicle until it’s paid off. If low monthly payments and the opportunity to drive a new vehicle every few years with little hassle are worth the extra cost, consider leasing. Be sure, however, that you can live with all the limitations on mileage, wear and tear, vehicle modifications, and the like. Finally, keep in mind that you should be able to afford the lease for the entire period, since the early termin­ation penalties can be costly.


The comments on that article are great:

Kevin Bell · Owner-operator at Self-Employed
"the idea of driving a new car ever 2-3 years" That's really proving
the point of the OP. You can't afford to drive a "new" car every 2-3 years, but you want to look like you can. Because there is no practical reason to want to. Cars are built to last FAR longer than that. It's all about image.

Missy Scarlet
My theory on why leasing is so popular is that people want to be able to drive a better car than they can afford. Kinda dumb.

Actually, if you run someone over with your leased car the law considers you the "owner." Federal law protects the leasing companies from liability. Of course you can't sell a leased or financed car I assumed that was understood but I see you take things very literally  

If you payoff a financed car you can sell it. People do this all the time by using their vehicle as a trade-in.

Leasing these days is so affordable, that anyone can just about lease a car.

That's the hook. Lease payments are less than when you finance. People who can't afford to buy or get financing often lease instead. In either case, a down payment is required. You still pay interest, it's just called something else.

HAHAHA even better.

Leasing a Dindu mobile to drive "on the weekends".  Most people would buy the car that they "only drive on the weekends".  You have it all backwards.  Literally throwing money down the toilet.  Who the hell told you to do this?   ???  The good thing about a lease (not that there really is anything good) is that you can drive the car whenever and don't have to worry about mileage (as long as you are under your limit LOLOL), yet you are treating it as if you actually own the car.

I suspect you walked in the dealership, they sat you down, shocked you with the 300 dollar payment a month to get you in a new BMW and you salivated at the thought.

I read a story about Steve Jobs leasing a new car every 30 days for the sole reason of never having to put a license plate on his car. lol

Every 6 months it seems. Odd loophole in CA law that someone with a new car had a maximum of six months to affix the issued number plate to the vehicle.

Mostly wealthy people I know lease their cars. A car is not an asset. It is an expense.

That depends. If you own this car, it is an asset.

He did say leasing a car gives him meaning in life. I can't fathom how leasing a car can give anyone meaning in life. Very baffling.

HAHAHA even better.

Leasing a Dindu mobile to drive "on the weekends".  Most people would buy the car that they "only drive on the weekends".  You have it all backwards.  Literally throwing money down the toilet.  Who the hell told you to do this?   ???  The good thing about a lease (not that there really is anything good) is that you can drive the car whenever and don't have to worry about mileage (as long as you are under your limit LOLOL), yet you are treating it as if you actually own the car.

I suspect you walked in the dealership, they sat you down, shocked you with the 300 dollar payment a month to get you in a new BMW and you salivated at the thought.  

I mostly live in a city during the week so there is no need for a car. Virtually everyone in my building leases their cars and we are all way more successful than you will ever be. We could buy up all the property in your shitty town for what one of our places costs

An all-time high 31 percent of new vehicles financed in the first quarter were leased.

The average new auto loan also reached a record high $29,551 and the average length is 67 months.  Among subprime borrowers, the average new-car loan is for 72 months.

Top leased brands:
BMW (70% Leased)
Land Rover (68% Leased)
Mercedes-Benz (67% Leased)
Audi (64% Leased)

But I will never drive a car that is older than 2 years, you buy a car and you could be stuck with a heap of shit.
Even buying a car outright if something goes wrong, sure a new car has a warranty but the will kick and scream and try and offload the cost to you if something goes wrong
Mine goes wrong, they dispute anything, I chuck them the keys and walk.

Most states have lemon laws to handle those situations.

I dare you to throw them the keys and walk. Your credit will be ruined and you will never lease anything ever again.

This is interesting information. I paid right around $30,000 for the compact Mazda CX3 I recently purchased. 75% of the purchase price is financed because the interest rate my credit union offered me was 1.67% for 60 months. I did consider leasing it because it's likely the car will outlive me. I generally keep a car for around 10 years.

Where I live there are a lot of the vehicles you mentioned. I suspect some of them are leased. Lately, I noticed quite a few Tesla's on the road and in parking lots nearby. Can they be leased?

We live in a time where there is a strong 'throwaway' mentality. If someone plans to keep a vehicle for only a year or two, leasing might be a good option.

That wasn't a dealers auction.  If it was, you would need a dealers license to get in.  You might want to consider getting a whole sale dealers license.  They're easy to get and it would allow you to go to the better auctions.  Most states allow anyone to sell four cars a year.

I'm assuming it was a public auction if it was at 6 at night.  Any ddealers auction I've visited were during the day, but the states could vary.

I didn't say others weren't interested I meant it wasnt that dramatic of a bid if you got away that easily, new engine and transmission should have been advertised, which is scary/warning  to many dealers.  You got a great deal.

Yea, you know I hate to say this but it seems as though people in America are becoming more and more sheeple every day.  Leasing a car is the dumbest things ever.  You make a down payment for 2000 bucks, pay 220 a month for 36 months, assume responsibility for any damage, add extra money for collision insurance have a limit on how many miles you can drive per year on it.......only to turn it back in for nothing in return other than chucking down another 2000 bucks....and this is for a fucking Prius, a crappy car that will fold up in an accident only driven because "you care about the enviroment" when in fact you're the actual cause of more vehicles to be built thus more waste.  

Prius consumes more energy in lifetime than Cherokee

This is exactly one of the reasons why I created this threads....to show Getbiggers that they don't have to "fall in line" and be a slave  OlympiaGym thinks he's right but if he actually had any real thought he might be able to better his life.  Here's the deal:  I bought a Jeep Cherokee at auction for 1000 dollars, with title, paperwork, and taxes it was 1125.  I pay an extra 5 bucks a month on my insurance, I don't need collision because its paid off and its 1125.00....who the hell cares.  Its got an airbag but more importantly, its made from American Steel, not cheap fiberglass.  I'm not a "registered driver", I am the OWNER.  I can drive as far as I want and go where I want.  I can also do what I want with my Jeep...I can paint it, customize it, add options whereas the only thing you can do is RETURN IT.  

Geez.

Another reason why build quality and quality control will continue to degrade and suck.  They know people will line up for leases, so why bother making quality anymore?  Just design it cheap to be replaced with cheap parts so the temporary driver can chuck the keys whenever something goes wrong (you are expecting it anyways).

Same thing happening with housing and everything else.  Standards are dropping, people don't have pride in ownership of anything anymore so why bother to build anything of quality?  Society will get what it deserves.

 Home ownership in England at lowest level in 30 years as housing crisis grows

Calls for government to build more homes as growing gap between earnings and house prices sees ownership fall across the country and people forced to rent


Monday 1 August 2016 19.01 EDT
Last modified on Tuesday 2 August 2016 12.50 EDT

   

Home ownership in England has fallen to its lowest level in 30 years as the growing gap between earnings and property prices has created a housing crisis that extends beyond London to cities including Manchester.

The struggle to get on the housing ladder is not just a feature of the London property market, according to a new report by the Resolution Foundation thinktank, with Greater Manchester seeing as big a slump in ownership since its peak in the early 2000s as parts of the capital, and cities in Yorkshire and the West Midlands also seeing sharp drops.
'Home ownership is unrealistic': five readers on England's housing crisis
Read more

Home ownership across England reached a peak in April 2003, when 71% of households owned their home, either outright or with a mortgage, but by February this year the figure had fallen to 64%, the Resolution Foundation said.

The figure is the lowest since 1986, when home ownership levels were on the way up, with a housing market boom fuelled by the deregulation of the mortgage industry and the introduction of the right-to-buy policy for council homes by Margaret Thatcher’s Conservative government.

The Resolution Foundation’s analysis highlights the scale of the job faced by the prime minister, Theresa May, who has pledged to tackle the housing deficit. May warned last month that unless the issue was dealt with “young people will find it even harder to afford their own home. The divide between those who inherit wealth and those who don’t will become more pronounced. And more and more of the country’s money will go into expensive housing.”

The report, based on analysis of the latest Labour Force Survey, showed that in early 2016 only 58% of households in Greater Manchester were homeowners, compared with a peak of 72% in 2003. In outer London, the peak in ownership came earlier, in 2000, but the fall was also from 72% then to 58% in February. The West Midlands and Yorkshire have also seen double-digit drops, driven by declines in Sheffield and Leeds.

Stephen Clarke, policy analyst at the Resolution Foundation, said: “London has a well-known and fully blown housing crisis but the struggle to buy a home is just as big a problem in cities across the north of England.”

In the early years of the millennium, homeownership levels rose as buyers able to take out mortgages with no deposit scrambled to get on the ladder before prices became unaffordable. At that point the average cost of a UK property was £122,748 and growing at a rate of 20% a year, according to Nationwide Building Society, and banks and building societies were keen to lend.

But numbers started to drop as properties became less affordable and the downward trend continued as the housing market crashed after the credit crunch in 2008. The return of mortgages for borrowers with small deposits has brought first-time buyers back to the market, but the analysis underlines how great the struggle is to meet today’s new high house prices. According to Nationwide, the UK average had risen to £196,930 in February – a 60% increase in 13 years.

Lindsay Judge, an expert on housing at the thinktank, said the problem was one of affordability. “House prices began to outpace earnings in the early 2000s,” Judge said. “When the market fell so did earnings – house prices began to come down but so did people’s pay, or it was stagnating at best, so few people were able to make the most of falling prices.”

The analysis showed that across England levels of private renting almost doubled from 11% in 2003 to 19% in 2015, while in Greater Manchester the figure more than trebled, from 6% to 20%.

The Resolution Foundation said this shift in tenure could mean problems in the future, as individuals would need to find a way of funding their housing in retirement, or may need to turn to the benefits system for help. Clarke said: “The shift to renting privately can reduce current living standards and future wealth, with implications for individuals and the state. We cannot allow other cities to edge towards the kind of housing crisis that London has been saddled with.”

Anne Baxendale, head of policy and public affairs at the housing charity Shelter, said house prices were now “completely out of step with average wages”.

She added: “Sky-high rents are leaving many families struggling to make ends meet each month, let alone save up enough for the deposit on a home. Far from being the stepping stone it once was, many young people and families are now facing a lifetime stuck in expensive and unstable private renting.

“The new government has a real chance to give hope back to these families by tackling the root cause of the housing crisis and building genuinely affordable homes that people on ordinary incomes can actually afford to rent or buy.”

Dan Wilson-Craw, policy manager at the campaign group Generation Rent, said saving up for a deposit was becoming harder for would-be homeowners, especially those in insecure work. “Renting in the private sector is the only option for many, and 12-month contracts mean their homes are insecure too,” he said. “Everyone needs a stable home, whether or not they can afford to buy, so the government must look at reforming tenancy law.”

Grahame Morris, Labour’s shadow secretary of state for communities, said the research showed the government had failed to deliver on its promise to build homes. “Building more homes is part of the solution that involves increasing the housing mix we need to deal with the chronic housing crisis we face today,” he said. “The report highlights that we have the lowest level of new builds for generations. At the same time more and more people are being forced into the private rented sector, paying higher rents with little protection from unscrupulous landlords.”

The Department for Communities and Local Government said more than 300,000 people had been helped into homeownership through government-backed schemes since 2010.

“On top of this, latest figures show that for the first time in 20 years, first-time buyers have borrowed more than home movers,” a spokesman said. “However, we know there is more to do, which is why we’ve set out the most ambitious vision for housing in a generation, including delivering hundreds of thousands of homes exclusively for first-time buyers.”

Doesnt effect me, I have a good job, house and money.
Like you, well, apart from the job bit.

Real dealers auctions have row upon row of three year old luxury cars just off lease.

They're the only auctioneer I know that haggles with the winner every time tho.  Every single time.  I've offered $50 for stuff that has gone unsold over several auctions and would be decent for projects/ workshop stock, no other bids, zero interest, and they've come back saying the vendor wants $800 but might take $600, etc.   ::)  I'm not your fish.  I'll give you the $50 which is more than anyone else has offered in the last 3 months.  "We'll get back to you, ok?"  No.  I'm here now.  It's either going on the truck or it's not.  It's crap that no one cares about.  I don't care enough to give you more than $50.  I'm not making another trip for it.  U want it out of your yard or not?

$2000 for a Mercedes SUV. If you offered $1750 and then spent $2k fixing up wear and tear you would have a great car for a few K.

Yeah, construction guy.  Would like to find time to set up for shotcreting and spraying stucco with the compressor.  Haven't found the time to do much contracting with the backhoe either but it's easy to come by in my area.  It was the right machine (295 hours on the clock) for the right money on the day, and I'd be lucky to get site prep works done by a contractor for what I bought it for, never mind septics, footings, services trenching, landscaping, etc.  I'm rural with very dry summers so will probably dig in and cast a 100,000 gallon concrete rainwater tank as well.

That's how I got my car - bought one right off lease with high mileage and perfect body / interior.   3 years of low mileage driving has now had it "caught" up and it's low mileage for the years.

Saved 25 grand off the new price.

Its a single toggle on the center console.  I wish the previous owner just left the windows hand cranks on the front.  No reason whatsoever for the modification.  I am going to install a bluetooth diagnostic box that will be monitored by my android tablet.  I have an aftermarket stereo system in it with a USB port but I need to check it for bluetooth today or find a solution for it so I can play Pandora while I'm driving.

North Carolina is easy on smog certs, too, I think.  They don't hook up to anything but the OBD and some counties don't even require that afaik. 

States like NC end up with all the used cars from strict states.  In a strict state, number one reason for people failing to keep their shit on the road is emissions testing.  So the sharks set upon them, get them currently registered by way of a scam smog-shop, and then the car can be turned over somewhere with easier requirements.

Just like Texas is (or was) the place to clear a title from a car that had been salvaged etc.

Important update for everyone.  Recently, I was running a check on the Jeep when I noticed that the wheel were leaking...smelled it and turned out to be brake fluid.  Took it to a shop and it turns out that the previous owner just did brake pad swaps without any concerns for the rotors attached.....also they were some of the cheapest Chinese chop suey bonzai kung pow pads ever....no wonder the dude was changing them.  Must have been attributing it to off-roading.


Had all of that crappy shit completely removed and got some AMERICAN MADE rotors and brake pad along with a complete overhaul of the brake system.  Total cost was 655.00 dollars.  I don't mind spending the extra cash because other than the fact that I have no car payments, you never want to fuck around with your brakes, Getbiggers.

Brake fluid usually feeds the calipers.  If he accidentally hooked the brake lines up to the rotors that may have contributed to the problem.

I love machinery auctions but my impression is that in the US you'd do better with a private sale when it comes to vehicles.  Possibly.  Either way, do some googling V.  Acquaint yourself with how to assess viability.  Owning used vehicles means being at least 1/2 a mechanic.  If you don't like greasy fingers then you're better off paying for the guarantee and known history of a new car.  Mechanics fees, tows, and lost income from downtime will add up fast if you buy someone else's problem.  There's probably no test driving but I wouldn't buy anything if they won't let you crawl around on it and under it, start it, and put each gear under power for a couple inches.

Imo you shouldn't buy anything, no matter how good a deal you think it is, until you've attended and quietly observed a few of these shindigs.  I'd gravitate toward things I can work on - a minimum of computerization and a manual transmission.  I can't be too clear here - you're gonna work on it, which means tools and time, or you're gonna pay someone to work on it.

Ugly & strong is what you want.  People fling money at complete lemons if the paint is nice.  Fresh paint is a red flag.  I've seen trucks with freshly painted undersides that clearly came from salt country.  Vendors will pull some dirty shit.  Fleet/ government vehicles are good to look at since they're often swapped out at an age/mileage limit and come from a regular maintenance regiment, but there ought to be a fleet of them there at similar age - not just 1.  Individuals rarely undertake preventative maintenance at recommended intervals so maintenance logs are nice but rare, and perhaps not entirely to be trusted.  Badging means nothing.  Bling is the enemy.  You'll see bidding wars for a mercedes or jaguar with a mahogany dash and fucked engine when the rock-bottom model ford with a scratch that got clockwork oil changes can be had with minimal competition.

What the fuck is all this? You're answering a question no one asked and it. Are you turning in to Vince Basile??

Important update for everyone.  Recently, I was running a check  when I noticed  leaking...smelled it and turned out to be  fluid.  Took it to a shop and it turns out that the previous owner just did  pad swaps without any concerns for the rotors attached.....also they were some of the cheapest Chinese chop suey bonzai kung pow pads ever....no wonder the dude was changing them.  Must have been attributing it to off-roading.

 

That  sounds like one of my ex-wives  :D

Exactly...also replaced the calipers...pretty much almost the entire braking system since they were down there.

How could someone hook up brake lines to rotors? That is impossible.

Vince something is fishy here.

It's strange SF1900 because break lines "screw" into "holes" designed for brake lines. It would be like plugging your tv into the wall and not the outlet.

Years ago home ownership was thought to be an always great thing. And for you it may make financial sense. Today it is viewed often not as an asset but an expense.  I've owned several houses and managed to make money of the sale of them although I got very lucky buying just after the bubble burst around 2008 for the last one. Many of my friends and coworkers got caught in a bad place. I sold my last house in 2015 and will likely rent from now on. It gives me the option of moving around when I want (retired) and I don't have to repair anything.  But if your income is stable, you plan on staying put for several years it could be a good decision depending on if you got a good value with equity upfront

No logic? I said buying a house works for some. If you plan on staying in place, you have a steady income, you buy with equity in the home, the location is not a war zone, it can be a good investment. what part of that statement do you disagree with? ON the other hand, the market is not as solid as it once was thought to be, there are some who say the housing market in many areas now is a bubble and over valued, if you sell before 2 years it is capital gains taxed and fees can eat up much of the profit. Now what part of that don't you agree with?  and then.. lets talk trailer house/Modular home... Notorious for depreciation, rarely if ever does one get what they paid for a mobile/manufactured home when they buy new and sell. What part of that do you disagree with?

"Today it is viewed often not as an asset but an expense."

I disagree with this wholeheartedly. It's an extreme asset for a ton of reasons. Even now full ownership is an asset for sure. Being on the side of renting for strictly financial reasons, is worse than ownership a home. Buying a home strictly as an investment? Probably not the best but at the end of the day, your reasons are for being able to travel, being older etc. rather than what the best financial route for property is. So what works your you is not the indefinite answer.

Please list how it's an expense more than an asset for that statement?

I'll be Toronto renting and putting 50k in stocks each year until retirement to a nice cheap place like Peterborough. The Toronto market is insane. 1 million dollars for a cheap 1950's bungalow. If you can get good cheap housing, go for it Vince.

That's what I like to hear as Torontonian. People who give up should just move to the suburbs. We need winners in Toronto to drive this country forward. Not people who demand price control or affordable housing.

"Today it is viewed often not as an asset but an expense."

I disagree with this wholeheartedly. It's an extreme asset for a ton of reasons. Even now full ownership is an asset for sure. Being on the side of renting for strictly financial reasons, is worse than ownership a home. Buying a home strictly as an investment? Probably not the best but at the end of the day, your reasons are for being able to travel, being older etc. rather than what the best financial route for property is. So what works your you is not the indefinite answer.

Please list how it's an expense more than an asset for that statement?

If you have a house that you rent out to tenants, then it’s an asset. If you have a house, paid for or not, that you live in, then it can’t be an asset. Instead of putting money in your pocket, it takes money out of your pocket. That is the simple definition of a liability.
Rich Dad Scam #6: Your House is an Asset

Is Your House An Asset Or A Liability?

Over the last few years, many Americans found out that owning a big house was more like living the American nightmare, not the American dream. What got most people into trouble was they failed to realize that, on balance, a house is a liability, not an asset.
Now you might be thinking I'm exaggerating to make a point. But I'm not. On balance, a house is something you constantly pump money into, and for the most part, won't get out of it what you've invested in it. That sounds like a liability to me, not an asset. So before you buy your next house, you should ask yourself "what's it going to cost me," as opposed to "how much can I make off of it." That will help you keep your housing costs in line with your income.
I know most people have been led to believe that a house is an asset, which is why so many thought they should buy a huge home. The bigger the home, the bigger the asset. But it's not so. Think about this: assume you buy a home and don't put a dime into it for 30 years. You don't paint it, repair it, or update it. You just let it sit there. How much do you think that home will be worth at the end of 30 years? Not much."

You sir are living in the 80's..but hey, don't listen to me, I retired at 6 figures at 53, what do I know?

How will it not be worth much? This is what i don't understand. The prices of houses continue to go up and up. A house you bought in the early 90's in LA for less than 500k, is worth over a million now. Certainly there was inflation, but not NEAR the extent to come even close to only breaking even.

So you're saying buying multiple condos for cheaper, and renting them out, is more financially rewarding as it serves for a constant income? I can agree with that.

For you to be 53 without owning property i would hardly call that somebody i would want to listen to no offense.

quietyou.. it's all good. Owning a house is a personal decision. For some it can end up making them money. For others they break even. Some lose money but there is a mental value to owning a home that is hard to put a value on. Like I said, I've owned 5 of them over my life time. Got nothing against someone buying one. If it were my son, I would advise to look for a great deal.. I've got family that have invested in bank foreclosures that bought them on the steps of the courthouse and done very well. I'm not against buying, but a manufactured home is in a different category. If you disagree that's fine. I could be wrong, wouldn't be the first time, won't be the last. But I don't believe my advice was off target and it has worked well for me

Let me just say... if you think having a mortgage, and trust me, most home owners do... is a sign of "making it" that's cool. I am debt free. My only bills are my monthly rent and utilities. I own my late model cars outright, a Beamer and Mustang, have an income of over 10k a month till I die and at the moment a quarter million in a 401K/Deferred comp, not to mention savings. I live comfortably, can travel when and where I want.. not many people get to say that. And much of it was on investments. I know a little bit about what I'm talking about. I'm not Getbig wealthy by any standards, but I'm doing ok

If you advocate buying a modularhome/trailer house as an investment.. talk to me when you get to my age..

Where do you live? I would imagine NYC area or San Francisco/ southern California?

The master bedroom can fit three king size beds. A friend of mine has the same house I have according to his plans and it's worth 1.5 million in north Jersey.

Modular homes are built as good (if not better then site built). They are also considered the same by banks, etc. but generally pricing comes out to the same as a site built once all is factored in.

Manufactured homes are likewise built as good and can add insulation, etc. to get up to higher standards. They are cheaper and probably most value for your dollar. However, some banks don't seem to like financing them, etc. so there is that issue. They are stuck in the idea of them being "mobile homes" when that is far from the case with modern manufactured homes. There are becoming more and more that do it.

We would have got one except there is no reasonable land available in my area of the country. Much better value then most of the housing around here and new as well.

Where I’m from you are lucky to get a 3 bedroom 2 bath for 350-400 minimum.So 188 or 225 is extremely cheap for the size you are getting here.i could be in a mansion down south for what I paid for my current townhouse.Its fucked up here in the northeast price wise and tax wise.

The property has city water and sewer hookups.   The biggest influence of getting a Clayton singlewide mobile home is essentially pricing and the housing market.  Simply put, owning a home is no longer a great investment as it used to be and the majority of people are underwater with their homes in addition to needing major repairs.  Houses are at this point a waste of money unless you make a full cash purchase.  Rent is skyrocketing along with required fees.

While I can afford and got approved for a 200k home, I simply would have been working myself to death and my quality of life would have been severely diminished.   A mobile home is less expensive because its a organized and consistent design built in a controlled environment that is not affected by weather.  Its also a very bland product and while I'm able to pick a few custom options like the color of my carpet, you don't get a choice in the setup or design.  


The thing that matters to me is to not only own a quality home but to not diminish my quality of life.  Spending 56k for a singlewide mobile home allows me to get a high quality product and not bust the cash register.....and since I own the land, its going to allow me to put even more money away.

I completely agree with your logic and follow a similar approach myself regarding acquiring my home as cheaply as possible, I have mates who have big mortgages and who have lost money buying overpriced new builds

over here they call those double width mobile homes “lodges” and sell some of them for more than you can get a detached 4 bed house for where I live, nowadays with galavanised frames and plastic cladding they look great for many years longer than they once did.

Yep....the home is not where the value is but the land under it to put whatever you wish there.  I am going with a singlewide so I can have a larger yard for the dog  but I'm going to have a very large deck with an outdoor hot tub.  I figure since I sell patio furniture and hot tubs, I may as well use my supplies

Dreamed for a long while of buying land and building my own modest house as being a builder and doing a lot of the work myself would have worked out a lot cheaper than buying but long ago it became the case that if there was the slightest chance of planning permission to build being obtained the land would be sold for a premium, we aren’t even allowed to put a caravan/mobile home on land you own without permission our planning laws fucking suck.

If you have a house that you rent out to tenants, then it’s an asset. If you have a house, paid for or not, that you live in, then it can’t be an asset. Instead of putting money in your pocket, it takes money out of your pocket. That is the simple definition of a liability.

Is Your House An Asset Or A Liability?

Over the last few years, many Americans found out that owning a big house was more like living the American nightmare, not the American dream. What got most people into trouble was they failed to realize that, on balance, a house is a liability, not an asset.
Now you might be thinking I'm exaggerating to make a point. But I'm not. On balance, a house is something you constantly pump money into, and for the most part, won't get out of it what you've invested in it. That sounds like a liability to me, not an asset. So before you buy your next house, you should ask yourself "what's it going to cost me," as opposed to "how much can I make off of it." That will help you keep your housing costs in line with your income.
I know most people have been led to believe that a house is an asset, which is why so many thought they should buy a huge home. The bigger the home, the bigger the asset. But it's not so. Think about this: assume you buy a home and don't put a dime into it for 30 years. You don't paint it, repair it, or update it. You just let it sit there. How much do you think that home will be worth at the end of 30 years? Not much."

You sir are living in the 80's..but hey, don't listen to me, I retired at 6 figures at 53, what do I know?

I like this fellow.

The only thing I have purchased is the land which I'll put some pictures up once its mowed and cleared.  The mobile home is in the works as I want specific things for it such as gray carpet to compliment my white and red furniture so it will take about 3 months to complete.

Ffs, is anybody taking this negro seriously? Your furniture is trash, foh.

Where I’m from you are lucky to get a 3 bedroom 2 bath for 350-400 minimum.So 188 or 225 is extremely cheap for the size you are getting here.i could be in a mansion down south for what I paid for my current townhouse.Its fucked up here in the northeast price wise and tax wise.

Average price for a house here in Greenville, South Carolina is about $150k to 200k and that's 4 bed and two to three bathroom. To be honest, most people here make maybe $20 a hour if that. So, imagine living off that for 40 hours a week, buying food, utilities, cell payment, car payment, insurance,.. Etc. And not to imagine if you have a kid.... You'd be fucked.  :D there are a lot of top companies here that pay people $12 per hour or keep them working for a temp service.  :-\

The property has city water and sewer hookups.   The biggest influence of getting a Clayton singlewide mobile home is essentially pricing and the housing market.  Simply put, owning a home is no longer a great investment as it used to be and the majority of people are underwater with their homes in addition to needing major repairs.  Houses are at this point a waste of money unless you make a full cash purchase.  Rent is skyrocketing along with required fees.

While I can afford and got approved for a 200k home, I simply would have been working myself to death and my quality of life would have been severely diminished.   A mobile home is less expensive because its a organized and consistent design built in a controlled environment that is not affected by weather.  Its also a very bland product and while I'm able to pick a few custom options like the color of my carpet, you don't get a choice in the setup or design.  


The thing that matters to me is to not only own a quality home but to not diminish my quality of life.  Spending 56k for a singlewide mobile home allows me to get a high quality product and not bust the cash register.....and since I own the land, its going to allow me to put even more money away.

its also brand new and comes with warranties i guess whereas a used house requires ongoing maintenance.

Uncle and Aunt and a bunch of cousins in Asheville. Nice place to visit but it's not called the East Coast San Francisco for nothing.  Almost 100% liberals and people who are not from there.  Much like where I live right outside of Raleigh.  One of the fastest growing cities in the Country.  Almost everyone is from up North or from India.  True Adonis knows what I'm talking about LOL.

For reference, my 4800sq ft home was bought less than 3 years ago and now it's appraised for $75,000 more.  Wake County, NC home prices are no joke.

2 hours South on the NC/SC line, I have a  2 story 2700 sq ft home and I'd be lucky to get $125K out of it.

The South is all about common courtesy and respect.  You stay off my property and I do likewise.  Vast majority of Southerners hate the Klan because they stir up too much trouble.  You can find them passing out pamplets and littering cars on rare occassions but they usually get arrested and jailed for a year just for doing it.  Strict laws against it.

Sir, you must hang out with some real morons when you are down south. I've lived in Michigan, Florida, South Carolina, California, Georgia, O**O (what a third world shit hole), Virginia, West Virginia, Oregon, Washington,..

Years ago home ownership was thought to be an always great thing. And for you it may make financial sense. Today it is viewed often not as an asset but an expense.  I've owned several houses and managed to make money of the sale of them although I got very lucky buying just after the bubble burst around 2008 for the last one. Many of my friends and coworkers got caught in a bad place. I sold my last house in 2015 and will likely rent from now on. It gives me the option of moving around when I want (retired) and I don't have to repair anything.  But if your income is stable, you plan on staying put for several years it could be a good decision depending on if you got a good value with equity upfront

Keep in mind that you still pay for repairs, taxes and maintenance, property taxes, etc. when you're a renter. The cost of these things are simply built in to the rental price. In addition, there are rental fees and cleaning costs when you move. When you rent, the property isn't yours so usually you cannot do with it what you want.

One thing that is convenient when renting is the ability to move pretty much when you want, providing you're not breaking the least. Renting can be hassle free since the property manager is responsible handling most of what a home owner does to maintain a property. How quickly a property manager responds to requests is another thing....you might wait awhile for them to get something that is broken, fixed.

A condo/town home is somewhere between renting and ownership in terms of maintenance and other services. Whether you own your home or condo, or rent you pay for all the costs.

Congrats on being a  HOMeOwner

Anything to get the word HOMO into a post. It like an obsession around here. (NO HOMO) is an equally overused and stupid term to post. What if folks incorporated HETRO into their posts; would this be the same as posting (NO HOMO)?

Example you post, Nice pants. (HETRO)  :) :) :)

I'm now all set.  Purchased the Clayton Eclipse 60 with an Energy Smart Package instead of the original one.  960 square feet, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.



So here's the breakdown although I'll have it paid off entirely in 5 years:



Principal:  482.09
Taxes:  18.84
Homeowner's Insurance:  55.58

Total Monthly:  556.61


Total Amount of Loan $50,412

Interest Rate:  10.42%


Here's some pictures of the place.  It will look exactly like this because I don't get a choice in colors or design.

Are you going to pay down the mortgage monthly, or in a large lump sum at the end of five years?  You will have to pay an extra 600 per month on the principal, to have it paid off in five years.   ???

Both...make double payments and a lump sum at the end....I'll likely pay it off sooner with my business profits.   I was going to put 15k down but I would have been under the 50k range.   Instead I'll be putting down $2,750 and put the rest in the bank for now.  In any event, 556.61 a month for a home is good.  The amount also includes setup, delivery, and clearing the land.

Would you qualify for a shorter loan?  You could save a lot if you went with a shorter note, and higher payments.  Plus, your interest rate would be lower.

I appreciate the advice but I'm black, Twaddle.  I got the best deal a hebrew could get.  The advice you're giving is only suited for white people.  I have near perfect credit and made 70k last year but a white person making minimum wage at Burger King who just got out of prison would still have a lower interest rate than me......lol :D

Something is off here

Your payment has to include Principal and Interest each month (I'm assuming you have an amortized loan)

To pay off 50,412 in 60 months at 10.42% your P&I payment would have to be ~ 1,082 per month

http://www.amortization-calc.com/ (http://www.amortization-calc.com/)

Do you own the land as well or just the dwelling?

BTW - if you really think you're being charged a higher rate solely due to the color of your skin then you should get yourself a lawyer (no joke).  More likely you were charged a higher rate due to credit issue or if this is a mobile home then I would guess those rates are higher than mortgage rates (which are ~ 3.5 to 4% right now)

Sorry, but you're full of shit.  Skin color has nothing to do with an interest rate.  You can get a loan over the phone, and your race will never be included in the application.  You're paying a high interest rate because it is a manufactured home.  Again, if you shorten the term of the loan, you will get a lower rate.  Whether it's 9.42% or 8.42%, it would still save your some money in interest.  If you can truly afford to double your payments, you should push for a shorter loan.  If you're confident you can pay it off in 5 years, shoot for a 10 year loan.

I own the land and the loan is meaningless as the overall amount will be paid quickly.  Mobile homes do have higher interest rates.  As far as calling a lawyer......meh.   Better to have a flat interest rate than a fluctuating one...in addition to getting approved.  One thing you need to consider is that Blacks get turned down more.   I was only approved by 2 places and the other one was 13.5% interest and was not a flat rate.  


It is what it is.

it's very good that you own the land

you should check the math on those payments because you're not going to have it paid off in 5 year with the payment you posted.

Even if you have a interest rate of zero you still couldn't pay if off in 5 years with that payment

50,000 / 60 months = 833.33 per month

Why bring booty into this?


As far as people talking about the interest rates. If it's anything like a travel trailer/RV then the rates are high because that's where they really make their money. I offered to put 20% down on my RV and the interest rate actually went up. The finance people said they wouldn't make as much money. It's a racket. Vince is doing it smart, get a low monthly payment and then just pay extra on the principal each month. There's no prepayment penalty on these things so it doesn't make sense not to. Congrats Quad V.

Thanks.  Honestly, I will be able to save a lot of money by eliminating shit that I pay for at my apartment.  I have to pay 50 a month for cable TV which I don't need...just internet and an antenna , I pay extra for yard care and pest control which I can do myself saving about 60 bucks, renter's insurance is a joke and that will be gone.  Apartments are a complete ripoff at this point and you get absolutely no value out of it and buying a house for 200k is insane and any money issues that arise such as job loss or disability will surely cause a foreclosure.


This is a home that cost $50,000 Getbiggers and my monthly payment to maintain it is $556.41 although I'll be doubling payment and making a lump sum at the end.  I can go out and flip burgers and still be able to afford it.  Why should I go out and buy a home that I have to work to death just to maintain??   Too many people spend beyond their means and I'm not planning to do that.

It's great that you're going to have your own home.  The numbers just aren't making sense though.  That interest rate is absurd.  Even 7% would be high, but more in line with that kind of purchase.  What was the down payment?  It's wishful or delusional thinking those will be your expenses.  Expect at least double what you've posted.

I'm now all set.  Purchased the Clayton Eclipse 60 with an Energy Smart Package instead of the original one.  960 square feet, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.



So here's the breakdown although I'll have it paid off entirely in 5 years:



Principal:  482.09
Taxes:  18.84
Homeowner's Insurance:  55.58

Total Monthly:  556.61


Total Amount of Loan $50,412

Interest Rate:  10.42%


Here's some pictures of the place.  It will look exactly like this because I don't get a choice in colors or design.

Yep....the home is not where the value is but the land under it to put whatever you wish there.  I am going with a singlewide so I can have a larger yard for the dog  but I'm going to have a very large deck with an outdoor hot tub.  I figure since I sell patio furniture and hot tubs, I may as well use my supplies

This also needs to be discussed.

Goodrum:

that "principal" payment would have to be Principal and Interest unless of course his interest rate is 0 (which it is not)

so if 482.09 is Principal and Interest and if the interest rate is 10.42% (still can't believe there isn't a better rate out there) then this represents a 23 year term (assuming it's a fully amortized payment)

Since Vince said he has a lump sum due at the end of the term we know the payment of 482.09 is not a fully amortized payment


Vince - do you have the disclosures from the lender.

They should have disclosed the term of the loan, lump sum payment at the and and the  total cost of interest over the life of the loan

Although it's certainly a good deal to get your house paid off in 5 years you're paying 10%+ every year on the outstanding principal balance so depending on how long you actually have this debt you could be paying much more in total interest than the value of the house (not uncommon - assuming no appreciation)

Just for some perspective, If you had gotten a VA loan at 3.75% that same payment (482.09) would have financed a loan amount of ~  104k.

You do realize that I'm black right???  Of course my interest rate is going to be high and that's actually pretty good since I expected around 14% interest.  That's why I'm paying it off within 5 years.

Then he was going to live off the grid. Then buy a Jaguar.

Melvin boasted that he doesn't have a credit card. Guess his credit rating is low and now his interest rate is higher.

I never said "23 year rate"

If you're happy with the property and you pay if off ASAP that's is all that matters.
You should try to prepay each month (to reduce principal ASAP) rather than a big lump sum at the end of year 5 otherwise you're paying a boatload of interest during the 5 years you have the loan

For example, if your loan has an amortization period of 30 years (let's say with a balloon payment at the end of the 23 year) and you choose to make the regular monthly payment each month and intend the pay the balance off at the end of the 5th year you'll wind up paying a bit less than 26k in interest during that 5 year period.

I think you said you intended to pay 1k or more per month and that would definitely be the way to go.
Get a copy of the note and make sure they apply prepayments to principal reduction (I assume they would be always better to check) and that you can make prepayments without any penalties

Still hard to fathom why your rate is so high

VA loans (even with poor credit and I think you said yours was good) appear in to be in the mid 3% range (and that's with 100% financing)

I have a couple of questions for you.

Why is the interest rate so high? Current rates on home mortgages are somewhere between 3 and 4 percent.

Less than $240 in annual taxes is crazy low. I imaging this does include tax on the land.

How do you figure you'll have this place paid for in 5 years when you're only paying a little over $500 a month and the interest rate exceeds that per month? You're "balloon payment" will be as much or more than you bought the place for. Do you plan on making extra principle payments?

The place looks pretty nice. It's a lot better than many people have.  Too bad about not being able to upgrade.

Mobile homes have higher interest rates...also the amount of the loan is 50k....if it was over 200k then I could get 3%.   Because I have a lot of money coming in next year from some investments I made,  I could feasibly pay it off next year in one lump sum....but its better to go with a general loan in case I end up with some financial distress. 

Its funny how everyone is yelling about the interest rate but is forgetting about the actual cost of the home itself.  Its 50k for the home and I make about 70k a year.   I'm not buying it for an investment, I'm buying it to reduce my cost of living, get homeowner credits, and put more money away in the bank.

Please forgive me for pointing out that the standards where you seek to find financial success, go against the grain of everything that has proven to work in the past. I'll admit that my experience with stapled together, manufactured homes is lacking. Maybe I could have made a killing in real estate had I'd known what you seem to know. What I do know, is that like the story of the Three Lilttle Pigs; if you build a house of straw, it will get  blown down by the big bad wolf (or in your case a hunky bear). ;)

Have you considered that the reason the interest rate on these houses is so high is because they have no value now or ever? Mortgage lenders aren't as stupid as they might sometimes appear. Frankly, that you can even secure a loan on the cardboard shelter you aspire to, is somewhat amazing. As for the future, I sincerely hope you have money coming your way (or maybe not) since that cute little trailer you love is very unlikely to outlast the term of its mortgage.

In 2016 when I purchased a Mazda CX3, my bank offered me an interest rate of 1.3%. I paid a little under $30,000 for the car. What does this say about a 10.5 interest rate on a prefab home? Yes, my credit rating is well over 800 and banks clamor to have my business, but when all is said and done, the value of the product they are lending on is a big factor. Incidentally, considering depreciation and my old age, I might have been better off leasing the damn thing. We all make mistakes.  

I like you. Maybe because of your ignorance in all things pertaining to financial investments, it is why I feel compelled to share my advice in these matters. The simple truth is that when something seems too good to be true, it is. Heck, maybe after 73 years hanging out in this world, I am actually senile and maybe you have the key to success. I wish you all the best.

I'm being serious here. I have no reason to wish you anything but the best. I wish the truth wasn't the so obvious truth in these matters....and will allow for the fact that anything is possible.

I think you have been sold a bill of goods. I don't believe this will turn out to be what you expect. It sickens me that the oppression of the less affluent, educated, intelligent and marginalized folks is so easily acquired.

My best to you in all that you hope to achieve.

On a side note, my annual income is not a heck of a lot higher than yours. One of the reasons I am able to live as well as I do is because I mostly made wise real estate and retirement investments. I am a working class guy with a retirement income that is only a little be more than your income. Maybe I got lucky, maybe I'm a little more experienced than you. It is your choice to ignore what I've said. Like I said I honestly wish you every success.

Mobile homes have higher interest rates...also the amount of the loan is 50k....if it was over 200k then I could get 3%.   Because I have a lot of money coming in next year from some investments I made,  I could feasibly pay it off next year in one lump sum....but its better to go with a general loan in case I end up with some financial distress. 

Its funny how everyone is yelling about the interest rate but is forgetting about the actual cost of the home itself.  Its 50k for the home and I make about 70k a year.   I'm not buying it for an investment, I'm buying it to reduce my cost of living, get homeowner credits, and put more money away in the bank.


Some of the things you stated about home ownership and apartment living are incorrect but that's irrelevant. I only bring it up because you seemed defensive from people attacking your decision and rather than just address their concerns comments you went "Buying a $200K home is stupid, living in an Apartment is stupid" which are overbroad generic statements that don't fit everyone. I could easily say "Buying a manufactured home is a bad investment" but while that can be true, it's not the case all the time. If you're happy with your purchase, and you have every right to be thats all that matters. From what you said, the land and trailer are $50K, A BMW X5 is $70K and people buy those everyday and they are NOT a good investment in almost every case. But people can afford it so what the hell. Looking forward to seeing it furnished

Apartments increase in price over the years and with all the extras, I'm already paying over 1000 dollars which steadily increases.  However, purchasing a home for 200k is not feasible for me because it would be a drain on having to pay that much per month along with paying for empty spaces that I'd never use being a single person.  Why do I need 2000 sq ft with 4 bedrooms???  For a person with a family, its a different situation where something like that is needed.


A mobile home is a better idea for me but I bought a high quality one....high ceilings, Energy Smart Package, double pane windows, maximum R level insulation, wood laminate flooring, etc.  Its 2 bedrooms and enough space to meet my needs which is for a bedroom and my office.  Its also one that can be updated as well without any trouble.  Its the right choice for me and I feel that not only would I get my investment back but that I'll be free to enjoy life without having to worry about coming up with a high mortgage each month.  


Buying anything is a dumb idea if you can't afford it or its something you don't need.

Yes, your knowledge is lacking in mobile homes as a lot of things have changed in terms of constructiona and durability.  They will last as long as any house because they are built the exact same way with the same materials.   Of course I don't expect you to get things since your comments are pretty disrespectful towards me.

I'm glad that you can suck your own dick bragging about yourself.....if you're not too careful, you'll eventually choke on it.

Man, I sure hate to be the one to tell you this, but mobile (manufactured) homes are NOT built the exact same what with the same materials. Modular homes are certainly closer to stick built, but mobile homes are not. That is the reason financing, insurance and resell are not the same. But again... if you are happy with your purchase, rock on! I grew up in a 10X50 New Moon and later a 14X72 (thought we hit the lottery) until I was 15 and thought they were just fine. Enjoy

I believe it is actually a manufactured home. "Mobile Home" refers to homes built prior to 1976 when the HUD code governing building standards for factory-built homes was instituted, greatly improving quality standards. Used single wide manufactured and mobile homes tend to depreciate in value rather than increase in value. Unfortunately, this makes them not a good investment.

Its great if you can pay it off in a few years. But didn't you say you were getting a longer mortgage term because you wanted to have the cushion "in case" you hit financial issues? Well, why not shop an interest rate for the same reason? Settling for 10 plus percent because you think you will pay it off in a few years, you might as well get a 5 year loan at 2% if that's the case.

Vince, I'm not hating or trolling.  I really wish you the best, but in what universe does interest rate not matter if you're getting a loan, unless you're paying it off in full within 30 days, if they'll even allow that?

Exactly, plus a low interest rate means a lower monthly mortgage payment during those "few years" that Vince will be making payments.  And a low monthly mortgage payment is a heck of a lot easier to handle if Vince were to hit financial issues, thus making it less difficult to avoid foreclosure.

Vince reminds me a lot of my son when it comes to financial decisions. I can offer suggestions but intimately, he knows more than I do and so he buys those cars from those road side "buy here finance here" car lots without having a professional examine it, or shopping interest rates, and I watch in silence as yet again he buys a lemon that drops a transmission in 3 months and he lets it go back.

helly of Sawyer, KS Verified Reviewer
Original review: Dec. 5, 2017
We bought our single wide home new in 2003. While shopping we looked around at several different companies but end up deciding on Clayton because the salespeople were so nice and friendly. Worst mistake ever... as we've found out since, friendly salespeople is ALL this company has going for it. Our home is now 14 years old and it's falling apart despite us taking good care of it. The trim is falling off, the laminate countertops are peeling off, the laminate on the cabinet doors is bubbling and peeling and looks crappy. We've had to replace almost every doorknob because they all just fell off. We have a cabinet that wasn't even built square and actually bows out on the side. The front doorway wasn't even built square so our door hasn't ever properly closed. We can't even close our door well enough to lock it. It's super poorly insulated and we fight HIGH electric bills in the winter.
The most recent thing that happened, which really opened my eyes to exactly how incredibly crappy these homes are made, is a roofer recently FELL THROUGH OUR ROOF as he was putting a new roof on. We recently had some storm damage (Wind blew a section of shingles off) so we had new shingles put on. The roofer was up there removing the shingles and stepped on an area that was pieced together. When they built it, they took a bunch of little scraps of that pressed chipboard and PIECED them together without any sort of good support.
He basically stepped right on that spot and his FOOT FELL STRAIGHT THROUGH OUR CEILING. Now, get this... the spot he fell through wasn't in the area that was damaged and all the wood was fresh and clean... NOTHING ROTTEN or anything. Now if that isn't a crap job of a build, I don't know what is! It makes me sick thinking of all the money we've forked into our home. We'll be lucky if it's livable by the time we get it paid for. Speaking of paying for it brings up the other part of this horrible company. VANDERBILT. Hands down the worst company to have to deal with ever... but that's opening up a whole different can of worms and I don't have time at the moment to get into all that. So PLEASE... if you're looking for a home and you come upon a Clayton Homes center... DON'T STOP. KEEP RIGHT ON GOING.

So true! My older sister is a prime example. Bad financial decision after another from the time she was 30 until as recently as yesterday at the age of 68. So many opportunities to get ahead.. she had good advice from family, hell, we even bailed her out more than once, (when looking back, this might not have been a good idea as she may have assumed we always would ) yet at her age, they live paycheck to paycheck with furniture we either gave her, or she bought from goodwill. I could go down the line on bad financial decisions she made over the years that had she done differently, they could be living comfortably and enjoying life now.
Too many people want to justify their bad spending habits. They "deserve" a trip to ______ so they put it on a credit card. Jimmy works hard, so I went into debt to get him that fishing boat he's always wanted... I saw these pair of shoes and they where on sale so I got them... yet they don't contribute a dime to a retirement plan or even a safety net savings account for those surprise car repairs. Then before they know it they are 65 and can't afford to stop working or go anywhere or do anything but watch cable TV. Sad really.

Its great if you can pay it off in a few years. But didn't you say you were getting a longer mortgage term because you wanted to have the cushion "in case" you hit financial issues? Well, why not shop an interest rate for the same reason? Settling for 10 plus percent because you think you will pay it off in a few years, you might as well get a 5 year loan at 2% if that's the case. 

His numbers still aren't making sense to me  ::) ???  Regardless, if he's going to make double monthly payments anyway, wouldn't it save a lot of $$ in the long run if he split that in half and made 2 payments a month?

Vince reminds me a lot of my son when it comes to financial decisions. I can offer suggestions but intimately, he knows more than I do and so he buys those cars from those road side "buy here finance here" car lots without having a professional examine it, or shopping interest rates, and I watch in silence as yet again he buys a lemon that drops a transmission in 3 months and he lets it go back.

Well, got another letter from another bank. .........looks like I qualify for a government first time buyer loan so I'm going to call Monday and see if I can inch down the interest rate.....not that it matters but definitely can't overlook it.

Have you tried lending tree? How about LightStream. I have used Lightstream for a couple short term loans in the past and their interest rates for even an unsecured loan were 3% and it takes all of 48 hrs to get approved. You can pay off early with no penalty. Give them a shot.

If you are a Costco member, they have good prices.

Give the LightStream loan company a shot, worst that happens is they say no, best is you get a very good interest rate

Well I checked with FHA and Lending Tree.  They gave the interest rate of 4.5% from the lenders but the problem is that its for a 100-200k loan.....way more money than I need than to be stranded with and its pretty much what I expected.  The amount I'm requesting isn't high enough.

Ok.  So back to the issue at hand - the interest rate.  Any Getbigger could walk into a dealership and buy a new $50K car for  ~4% for 60 months. That $50K car will end up costing over $55K.  This isn't all that different.  He is looking at over $13K in interest on something that has, or should have, a lesser depreciation rate than a car, right  ???  Regardless, he's gonna be paying thousands in interest on something that will be worth significantly less when it's all said and done.

I am sure he knows a lot of gay men via NAMBLA. A popular gay man should have no trouble finding a partner to invest in a dwelling. He will then need $100,000....interest rate problem solved.

The interest rate is a true mystery. 10 percent to anyone in these times is the exception... I can see that with a 17 year old or a homeless person with no credit but other than that... weird.

FHA doesn't originate loans so not sure you checked with them

Lending Tree and all those other sites suck too

You're a veteran so call USAA (I told you this already)
https://www.usaa.com

100k @ 3.875% (on a VA loan) gives you a monthly payment of $ 470.23

50k @ 10.42% (on that shit loan you were offered) gives you a monthly payment of $ 454.38

Aren't you making something like 60k a year in your IT job or whatever it is you do (I can't recall) ?

Forget about trying to find something "cheap"

Try finding something that is a value and a real house that will last and actually appreciate in value and not some glorified mobile home

Even better, go find a duplex or tri-plex and rent out the other units (not sure if VA will allow a tri-plex but I think FHA will)

70k between my business and work however.....I'm still not going to take out a loan for 100k-150k just to get a low interest rate.  As I stated before, its not of any importance since I will pay it off in 5 years.  I'm only taking out what I need.

Agnostic is correct that Costco is excellent for TVs, and they also have the most generous return policies.

But check slickdeals.net daily.   Each deal posted will have forum members who generally give great advice......saw this one just now:

https://slickdeals.net/f/11174855-50-samsung-un50mu6300-4k-ultra-hd-smart-led-tv-380-free-shipping

I love slickdeals. I'm more impressed by forum members who complain about every deal.

8.5% interest for the home....final.  That's the lowest I can get on a 50k loan.   I did make some changes on design for the TV.  As much as I like the Samsung Frame, it is simply not a good value for what its being charged and the artwork novelty will wear off....so I will keep my present TV at home.


I do need to figure out a stereo system.  I did get ahold of a Bose Lifestyle 5 system and speakers but I'm going to search around for some other products.  I want to have the most crisp sound in the house

I have a couple systems. I have the Bose system in the man cave. If you already have it.. just keep it. It will work for you. If you HAVE to buy something else there are soooooo many better options available at that price point. When the Bose system craps out, I will not replace it with Bose.

FHA doesn't originate loans so not sure you checked with them

Lending Tree and all those other sites suck too

You're a veteran so call USAA (I told you this already)
https://www.usaa.com

100k @ 3.875% (on a VA loan) gives you a monthly payment of $ 470.23

50k @ 10.42% (on that shit loan you were offered) gives you a monthly payment of $ 454.38

Aren't you making something like 60k a year in your IT job or whatever it is you do (I can't recall) ?

Forget about trying to find something "cheap"

Try finding something that is a value and a real house that will last and actually appreciate in value and not some glorified mobile home

Even better, go find a duplex or tri-plex and rent out the other units (not sure if VA will allow a tri-plex but I think FHA will)



That payment doesn't include PITI. With that added in he's looking at right around $900-1000.00 which is still a great payment. A quick calculation of what he can (or anyone) technically afford depending on LTV. If Vince is grossing $70k you can take his yearly x 3.3 = $231,000. If he puts down 20% ($37,800) obviously his loan amount will be $151,200 and a much lower payment and will probably reduce his interest rate. This is on a 30 year.

Both...make double payments and a lump sum at the end....I'll likely pay it off sooner with my business profits.   I was going to put 15k down but I would have been under the 50k range.   Instead I'll be putting down $2,750 and put the rest in the bank for now.  In any event, 556.61 a month for a home is good.  The amount also includes setup, delivery, and clearing the land.

Coach, we were both off.. it's almost zero down but not quite.

Coach, I have no reason to spend over 200,000 for a home I will not have a need or use for...not to mention having to work for the rest of my life just to pay for that empty house.....what does a single man such as myself need with a 4 bedroom home???  Why should I take out a 200k loan just to get 4% interest???   Why do you think that I'm not smart for deciding to live within my means???



The home I bought is not only a great value but is designed to be easily remodeled and fixed up for pennies....thus giving my value for as long as I wish.   I feel more comfortable with a 50k loan than a 200k loan.  It may not be your cup of tea but its mine.   They are a lot better than you think

Vince, I didn’t say to buy a $200k home. I simply stated what you could technically afford based on your income. What I am saying is buy something that will bring you value in the long run. Something that if you wanted to sell in 25-30 years you can use the equity as part of your retirement if that’s what you choose. But, if you’re happy with your decision then the best of luck.

Why would I want to sell it for???  I already have money for retirement along with an annuity and residual income from my online business. I'm not going to sell it in 25-30 years....I'm going to simply remodel it as the home I bought is a modular singlewide.   Its a home to live in and I see no point in working myself to the bone for the rest of my life just to have something that I don't want.


As far as you thinking of it as something that is disposable after a few years...let me show you something.

Its in the middle of a forrest! Looks great brother. Beautifull greens in the summer.

It looks like you are not allowed to grow a garden?

How will you manage your online business ventures without internet?

Do you own the land or is the land leased?

I paid for the land but it has a management fee on it...195.00 a month.  The other property I have is all wooded area (investment property)....would cost way too much to clear and set up.   I can grow a garden if I want but it will likely be in pots if I was to do something.  


Even without DSL or cable internet, it gets a good 4G cell phone signal so I'll just use a Samsung DEX device.  I'll get Dish or Direct TV to cover my entertainment needs likely although I am also considering HughesNet Gen 5.  I'm checking with my currect provider ATT as to what I use each month.  But iy doesnt matter.....its all about the location

You get the worst investment ever. Let's run this down.

Instant depreciation on this cardboard shack.
Absurd interest because the bank knows it's a risky investment.
Trailer park fee, so you get to pay for them to tell you what you can and cannot do.
Property values in the area plummet as soon as the blacks move in.
etc.

Feel free to add.

Its good to have rules because it keeps the community clean and tidy looking.  I don't want to live next to a slob who leaves junk cars and toilets on the lawn, or someone playing loud music, or someone running a yard sale.  The idea that black devalue a property is ridiculous and someone cannot simply "move in" and they have to follow the same rules and of course, purchase a home. There are not rentals where I live or even a sublet.   That's why I chose this place to set up my house at.   With it also being in the countryside, its not desirable for "city people".   Its a nice community.

As far as depreciation is concerned....it really depends on the home you purchase and once I give a tour of the place, you'll understand.  Its going to look awesome especially with the deck plans I have in store.


You should know that even when you move into any nice suburb or neighborhood with house, there is usually an HOA fee associated with it.  Its to keep the community clean.  There's always going to be a fee unless you move away from civilization.

Seems to me investing over $100,000 for a larger, better dwelling would be smart for a gay guy, especially if you ever get another partner.

Well I told you to start the YouTube channel a year ago and you pooh pooed that idea, then for some reason started one a year later, ironically when the revenue went down dramatically.

I wasn't referring to you.  I should have started it many years ago.....it was simply a decision I made.   But a lot of people shit on me for it even when I did start it.  

The reason I'm buying the home is because what I am paying for now is simply unacceptable and I'll be able to save at least 600 dollars more a month on living expense.   Rent is simply too high and there are way too many "add on's" being thrown in to increase revenues.   Its simply ridiculous and the cost goes up a great deal each year.   I not only want to have control of my expenses but I also want to get away from the city.....not too far but far enough.   I'll have more freedom to do things I could not do with an apartment such as getting a home tub for example.   Even if it depreciates, it serves my purpose and I can always renovate and remodel it if needed.   


Clayton Homes has changed a great deal...its not perfect but neither is any other mortgage company or home builders.  I'm buying the home for shelter....not for investment purposes.  These are expenses that I would incur anyway so I'm not risking much of anything.  I have to live somewhere after all

I was wondering about the higher interest rate for your loan. It must be because the home is portable so I suppose some have disappeared, etc. Make sure the managers keep an eye on your dwelling!

That's what a security system is for.  The interest rate is meaningless because its for a 50k loan which I'll pay off in a few years.... ::)

Even if your mortgage cost exactly the same or even more as your current rent and the property was worth far less than it was when you bought it by the time you’d paid off your mortgage your still far better off than having rented a house, pay a mortgage for 25 years and the house is yours and your money minus the interest is still there in some form depending on house value, pay rent for 25 years and you’ve got fuck all but another 25 years or however long you live to pay with nothing to show

My guess is the camera was set to shoot panoramic which can distort images somewhat. If you look at the house on the left of the photo, you'll notice it appears to be tipping in the opposite direction.

Ground is sprayed to insure animals Don't try to get under it.  As far as leveling is concerned, I'm not a home builder and d ont wish to be.  It's being set up by Clayton Homes so I'll let them do their job and stay out of the way.

I'm not setting up the mobile home.  That's what I'm paying Clayton Homes to do.   They are also building the deck as well...one 10×20 in the front and a 4×5 in the rear with solid pine.   It's going to be fine, Henda.

You would think they would put a concrete slab down and secure the home to it. If you have a big storm it could be a worry.

So where is the garage for your two cars?

Ground is sprayed to insure animals Don't try to get under it.  As far as leveling is concerned, I'm not a home builder and d ont wish to be.  It's being set up by Clayton Homes so I'll let them do their job and stay out of the way.

thank god its solid pine... swiss cheese pine or particle pine would be awful, Pine is not a good choice for outdoors, is it at least treated pine?

I kid you Vince, but if you are going to use wood for a deck, while pine is the cheapest, it doesn't last long. Composites like TREX or its competitors will last much much longer. It is a bigger up front expense but since you are planning to stay there a long time, the cost will be negated. I know for some looking at the initial investment and how cheap pine is to composite seems the better value, but a guy like you, that looks at the big picture, certainly you can see the value of staying away from pine which rots and warps at a faster pace than almost any other wood.

Only because I have used pine... I wish someone had guided me to at least a harder wood. I have used trex and the deck I had built in 98 is still going strong. Killed me to pay the up front cost but it paid for itself. Now there are more options and trex isn't as expensive as it was at the time.

Trex may last longer but I hate the stuff.  Hated it when I worked as Lowes.  Has nothing to do with affordability as I could simply get untreated wood and put a sealant on it myself...the cost difference is only about 1200 bucks but I simply like real wood deck.  They require more care than Trex but its worth it

pine is barely real wood but ok..and it is your money. You posted on a forum which opens up the possibility others will chime in as their right. If you want to build your deck on a home you say you will keep for years out of pine... by all means do so... but when you are 70 and still working, think back on this moment and the combination of financial decisions you made and recall those who tried to help and we'll call it even

I have some wood working experience. Pine.. is the cheapest and softest wood commercially available. Ply board is cheaper but it doesn't fit here. Pine is the Kia of wood. Yes it is cheap, but you get what you pay for and will be replacing boards in short order.

So, let's see if I got the story. Goodrum, who definitely knows the value of a dollar, rejected buying a house and instead is saving heaps buying land and a mobile dwelling.

Something doesn't make sense because a solid house with a lower interest rate would surely be a better buy and investment.

Then we learn that there is a monthly management fee. Well, so much for getting out and off the grid. Instead, Melvin will live among other people who think like he does.

No internet! I mean, who would buy a new home and not have access to the internet? So his place to be must be almost rural and fuel to and from work will add up.

Then he will have to install a satellite dish or use a more expensive way to have more data. How on earth would someone run an internet business in those circumstances?

The more we learn the less impressed we are. Sure, Melvin is saving money but it doesn't sound that attractive now. Lots of expenses to come re setting things up.

$195 a month for a trailer court is pretty high. I paid 300 a year in a nice subdivision in Austin Tx. The list of things don't add up. BUT.... he is right in one regard. It is his money, he likely won't be asking any of us for personal loans so it isn't our business. I was just trying to impart some financial advice I've learned over the years but he seems headstrong to forge ahead so all we can really do is wish him luck and in 5 years I truly hope he proves me wrong

As long as I do preventative maintenance, it will be fine and will feel better on the feet than plastic....especially in the summer.  South Carolina has extremely hot weather which will literally turn a Trex deck into a foot blister...not to mention warp the boards.  Wood absorbs the heat better and won't radiate it back at me as with composite boards.


Now, with that being said...I did make a decision on my audio needs by purchasing a Bose SoundTouch 10 Wireless Speaker.  With my employee discount, it was only 129.99.  Perfect for the living room when I'm reading a book and want to listen to some music.   Nothing beats the sound and clarity of a Bose system.

There's no Cable or DSL internet lines.  Location is well worth it.   I can get Hughesnet or Viasat but I think you forgot who I work for you moron.  I'm also 10 minutes away from the highway and can get to work in 30 minutes.

Woods like pine can work in protected areas, but they’ll begin to rot fairly quickly when fully exposed and may only last a few years. Pressure-treated pine lasts much longer thanks to chemical preservatives, making it great for decks.

When taking the effort to maintain the deck every 2 years ( repaint it) it can last a long time.

As already mentioned the pressure treated timber lasts ages is normally guaranteed for 10 years and If looked after will last a lot longer.

Personally I’d fix the joists for the deck frame on top of brick built piers rather than the usual method of timber posts concreted into the ground, the extra expense in doing this is worth it for the peace of mind of never having to replace rotten posts which is usually the first to go and are usually inaccessible after the deck is complete so cannot retreated like you can the rest of the deck

Tell me if you guys like my idea for home ownership.  I'm going to buy a big house in Detroit for $1500 cash.  I'd install the best alarm system, the best cameras, I'd bar the windows, I'd install on of those cages inside the house like the movie "Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels.  I'd walk around my house with a kevlar vest on and have an AR-15 at arms reach wherever I went.  I'll work from home and shop on Amazon so I never have to go out.  I'd have zero expenses other than food, and internet.  I'd put every cent of my income in investments.  I won't leave the house until I'm a multi-millionaire at which time I'd hire some former Navy Seals to come and safely extract me.  lol.

JK, I already have a house.  If I was in my early 20's this is what I would do though, hahaha.

I have a friend selling the Bose Soundtouch 20 for $70 dollars because they are moving back to Italy wish I had known you were in the market. I have the smaller bose for bed side to make cool rain noises so I didn't buy it. But yeah.. a LOT of things beat the clarity and sound of a Bose system
This. Bose sucks. Nothing more than marketing gimmick. I had the top of the line 901's.  ::) Sold those and run Altec Voice of the Theater A5's with a McIntosh preamp. No comparison.

If you want small speakers get some Audioengine or Vanatoo's or something.

I don't know that Bose sucks. I do think for the money you can put together a much better system than what you get with money Bose wants if you want to go that route. The 901's as I recall rocked the house and required a separate amp to run. Some night clubs would use them back in the day.

Bose are kinda known by the audiophile community for not being high quality. From headphones to car audio systems to home audio systems, they kinda are low to low-mid grade.

Bose bluetooth ear buds are very good. I've tried several different kinds. In the ratings I checked prior to purchase they were rated high.

I agree that many audiophiles hate Bose. Some of the hate is probably unwarranted. Having said that, for the money you spend on a Bose system, in my opinion, you will get much better bang for your buck if you spend the time to buy individual components. A lot of people just like the convenience of the Bose system, the small foot print and there are some that like the Bose brand. I've had the Acoustimass 15 for probably 10 years now and they have survived some pretty loud parties and several moves. I also have an Onkyo HTIB system that cost about $300 that rocks the movies in the bedroom. In another room I have a Vizio soundbar surround system with woofer. Works great for that room.
But when Vince declares they are awesome, they probably are for him.

LOL at all the discussion about a low end hifi. What most people do is buy a decent home theatre to go with the large screen TV. That solves the hifi issue for the home. You play your music through it.

Naturally it will cost more but Goodrum will sniff out the bargains.

About Bose. They started out in the sixties and built up hype through various systems that were different. Amar Bose insisted that if you couldn't hear the difference then why pay for so called higher fidelity equipment.

Over the decades his company has built up a reputation for providing good listening systems from walkaround to home systems. I don't think they are the cheapest but, like Apple, you pay for the brand.

Naturally Goodrum opts for the cheapest bluetooth system. There is a 20 and 30 wireless unit as well but are much more expensive. One thing even the best don't have is tone controls. You can't add more bass or treble so have to accept

what Bose considers the right sound. Goodrum can tell his visitors he has Bose so will feel proud of that.

If Bose was just "hype" it would have went out of business a long time ago.   The SoundTouch 10 is perfect for my living room for some great tunes while reading or making fun of you on Getbig.   It has an electronic equalizer so buttons for bass and treble are not needed.

To criticize my selection of audio is just bullshit and obviously I always shop for the best price.

Who is knocking Bose? Not me. I have access to the SoundTouch 30 system which sounds very nice in a room.

I have 901 Bose speakers as well as noise-cancelling headphones. I have Duntech Sovereign speakers and also RTR monitors with 25 inch bass and 34 drivers in each speaker.

I paid over $1000 for two connecting cables just to have state of the art. Very expensive hobby for sure.

Enjoy your SoundTouch 10.

When you lose the love of your life, some people fall into isolation and depression. It seems Melvin has no more appetite for romantic conquests, except the odd sexual encounter, which ends up with cum on the partner's lips. Is Melvin sad about his relationship status as a single man? Perhaps, but he is not likely to share his personal feelings with us, based on his posting history.

at that size just about any name brand is fine, look for refresh rate, number of HDMI conncections to suit your needs and of course price.  You can probably get a decent one around $500 these days

No.  Most cell phone plans have unlimited data these days so I can use it as much as I like with a DEX station.  I also get 15 GB of mobile hotspot on my phone to use my regular computer although I will be purchasing a JetPack for that.   For media, I'll have either Dish Network or Direct TV although I'm going to try out a few things before I do that as I may not even need it.

On the other hand.. I know so many people that are house rich and cash poor. They bought in to the big house, luxury cars and all the accessories and can't afford to go out to dinner, go on vacation and are literally living paycheck to paycheck and would be homeless in 6 months if they lost their income.
Kudos to Vince for having a reasonable goal, a new home,  perfectly livable, comfortable and practical for 50K, less than many many cars and trucks people get sucked into. That he is excited about it is all that really matters. He's paying the bills. Now he had to have known that sharing something about your life on GetBig invites friendly banter and not so friendly bashing.. but lets see where he stands verses some of you in 20 years ..

In the UK we use bricks and mortar, we are not idiots.
They last hundreds of years, anyone buying a house and staying in it long term makes money eventually.
We bought well at the right time and are now mortgage free sitting in a property worth around £230k
We are in a position to be able to sell up whenever we like and move wherever we like.
Currently we like where we live, if it gets an infiltration of immigrants and undesirables we will move.

No they are not, uk houses are build with 2 leafs with a cavity in between, inner leaf is blockwork these days and outer is facing brick, either you are trolling or a complete fucking idiot to compare construction of a static caravan to a house

Even if what you said about uk construction methods was correct to even suggest barely 1mm thick corrugated shit steel is a better alternative than brickwork for the outer leaf of a timber frame house is sheer stupidity

Calm down dude. I'm not suggesting corrugated steel is better than brickwork, I'm merely saying the manufactured home isn't the piece of junk you are portraying it to be. 50K for a new manufactured home that will suit his needs for at least 15-20 years isn't such a horrible purchase. It might not be what you and I would do but it's not a plywood shanty with tarps and bailing wire

Pretty much everywhere in the world houses and buildings are built with CMU blocks (masonry construction), because they are inexpensive and easy to work with.

My "stick built" 1976 house probably won't last 200 years without continued major repairs. Max wood shake or composition roof life = 50 years, red cedar siding = 200 years with maintenance, copper plumbing 50 to 70 years and longer depending on the acidity of the water. Copper Romex wiring = 100 years. A couple of years ago I had dry-rot repaired to the tune of $15,000. Replaced all the carpet with solid 3/4" birch wood flooring with a factory finish. It can be sanded and refinished several times.

Clayton Homes are very durable.  The one in Sylva I was in with Vissy was a Clayton Houdini that was bought in 2001.  It didn't have anymore repairs than a normal home but it was much cheaper to get done and they were mostly minor.   Its still standing today perfectly fine....never had an issue with roof,  electricity....some clogged pipes and a floor repair from one of the cats digging it up but that's pretty much it.   


Also, these homes are not made of cardboard...they are stick built homes on a foundation of American Steel I-Beams.    The cost difference is simple....they are built indoors in a controlled enviroment so there is never any delays, you can't customize or design the floor plan, and they are much smaller as is my singlewide and waste is very minimal preserving the .   They use the same insultation, same wood, same plumbing, same wiring, same siding, same roofing, etc because Clayton Homes also builds modular homes and site built homes.   Here's a video of one being made if you need a reminder

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGnGyH-IB3M




As far as my reason for buying it....I simply wanted to reduce my bills as I spend a lot of money having an apartment in addition to having my own private place and something that I own.   I didn't wish to spend 188k on a home that I would never have a need for and would spend forever paying off and I wanted one with very little maintenance.   This is my first home I've ever bought so I'm very pleased at my decision to get one as well as being able to get out of Greenville and enjoy the peaceful countryside.

Clayton Homes

"Picture this: you’ve placed your home order with your home center, your order has been confirmed with the home building facility, your home is being constructed and you’re anxiously awaiting the day you can move in to your own slice of the world called home. While you wait for your home to complete the home building process, there are a few things that will need to be taken care of on your home site in preparation for your new home to be delivered.

Each home site is unique, so land improvement options and site prep tasks will vary for every new homeowner. During your home buying process, you will work with your home consultant to choose land improvement options and learn what all needs to be done to your home site to get it ready for your new home. Site prep and land improvement options will be completed by local contractors that your home center will help you find. Check out these different land improvement options that you should think about before your home arrives!"

I guess it is up to Vince to insure a stable foundation for his home.

Why bother with the paving? If it’s not seen just do away with the paving and pour a few extra inches of concrete to make up for the depth of the paving, no real difference in strength but cheaper and quicker

I'm going by what the contractor says.  Setting up homes is not my specialty so I'd rather go along with someone who has set up 100's of these places than using Wikipedia.

I'm going by what the contractor says.  Setting up homes is not my specialty so I'd rather go along with someone who has set up 100's of these places than using Wikipedia.  

I also do this for a living and I’m not “using wikepedia”,no proper foundation for anything is laid on “pavers” other that when diy’ers lay a few 3x2 flags as a base for their shed or greenhouse, why the fuck would you go to the hassle of laying a 2 inch thick paving slab in minimum of 4 inches of wet concrete and having to level every flag when you can just pour 6 to 8 inches of wet concrete, tamper it and be done?

I wasn't talking about you...I was talking about myself not knowing about setting up homes.  I'll trust the contractor in setting up the home and make sure it passes inspection.  If he fucks up, he'll have to fix it at his own dime

No biggie.   If I don't know about something then I either ask or hire someone who does.  The only thing I did is simply find a reputable and experienced contractor to handle the foundation.  Setup and Delivery is all done by Clayton Homes.   


My house was actually completed and is sitting in Easley, SC as building one takes only 7 days.  I'll go down this weekend to check it out as well as the property to sign off on the placement

Yep, hired a contractor.   Your point?

You already covered this with Clayton homes and that's great. Other folks who might be thinking about buying a mobile home might not know it. That's my point. Did you think it was a criticism?

If I wanted to downsize, I might look into prefabricated homes such as Glide House or Turkel Design, this one has 1710 sq ft, http://www.turkeldesign.com/products/td3-series/td3-1710.html (http://www.turkeldesign.com/products/td3-series/td3-1710.html)

I saw the pavers comment on top of a slab and thought "why?" I can't think of any reason to add pavers to a poured slab that will be covered in skirting and I am curious as to why the contractor would do it. the only reason that comes to my mind is adding to the cost.

Pier and Beam construction.  The trailer will have a crawl space underneath.  Pavers are cheap form of piers.  It's not about adding cost, it's about doing the job, cheap and fast.

Was thinking the same thing.
bedding paving slabs in a few inches of concrete is my preferred method for installing patios but the process of laying the flags takes one to two days work or more depending on the size of the area plus a labourer working the mixer whereas pouring concrete and levelling and tampering the same area would take less than an hours work and can get the concrete delivered.

No problem.  I was originally looking into a tiny home but they were not only more expensive than a mobile home but zoning laws pretty much prohibit them from anywhere.  Closest place was a shitty RV Park that would take it but it was pretty much seasonal prices (expensive)

interesting story involving clayton homes

https://www.seattletimes.com/business/real-estate/the-mobile-home-trap-how-a-warren-buffett-empire-preys-on-the-poor/

EPHRATA, Grant County — After years of living in a 1963 travel trailer, Kirk and Patricia Ackley found a permanent house with enough space to host grandkids and care for her aging father suffering from dementia.


So, as the pilot cars prepared to guide the factory-built home up from Oregon in May 2006, the Ackleys were elated to finalize paperwork waiting for them at their loan broker’s kitchen table.

But the closing documents he set before them held a surprise: The promised 7 percent interest rate was now 12.5 percent, with monthly payments of $1,100, up from $700.

Editor's note
This report is a collaboration between The Seattle Times and The Center for Public Integrity, a nonprofit, nonpartisan investigative newsroom based in Washington, D.C.
The terms were too extreme for the Ackleys. But they’d already spent $11,000, at the dealer’s urging, for a concrete foundation to accommodate this specific home. They could look for other financing but desperately needed a space to care for her father.


Kirk’s construction job and Patricia’s Wal-Mart job together weren’t enough to afford the new monthly payment. But, they said, the broker was willing to inflate their income in order to qualify them for the loan.

“You just need to remember,” they recalled him saying, “you can refinance as soon as you can.”

To their regret, the Ackleys signed.

The disastrous deal ruined their finances and nearly their marriage. But until informed recently by a reporter, they didn’t realize that the homebuilder (Golden West), the dealer (Oakwood Homes) and the lender (21st Mortgage) were all part of a single company: Clayton Homes, the nation’s biggest homebuilder, which is controlled by its second-richest man — Warren Buffett.

Buffett’s mobile-home empire promises low-income Americans the dream of homeownership. But Clayton relies on predatory sales practices, exorbitant fees, and interest rates that can exceed 15 percent, trapping many buyers in loans they can’t afford and in homes that are almost impossible to sell or refinance, an investigation by The Seattle Times and Center for Public Integrity has found.

Just finished preliminary inspection.  A few decorative accents got damaged in transit but no major issues.  There will be 2 more when the home is set up but very excited at being almost done

It's hard to believe you put your down payment on this home only a few month's ago...December 23. You cannot build a house using the traditional building process in just a little over 2 months. It takes longer then that just to get the permits in some places. It often takes up to 6 months for new construction.

It actually takes about 7 days to build a mobile home.  Clayton Homes are built on a huge production line indoors so there's no delays for weather, material, etc.   There is   However Its not permitted yet until its set on the property and it completes 2 more inspections for plumbing, electrical, etc.  The inspection today was the delivery inspection of goods to take care of any cosmetic issues.

Great stuff, Vince.

Given the 57k price for the home I'd have probably been a bit more extravagant with the land location - but fair enough.  I live (rent) in a shithole that is on million dollar land (inner city) and I've lived in better houses further away from work and I'd definitely say the shithole in a great spot is the better.

Well it was 50k but its just a 20 minute drive to downtown Greenville.   However, the reason I moved outside Greenville is to get lower property taxes and less restrictions on things.   I've lived in the city before in Asheville and while being in walking distance to Beanstreets Coffeehouse, Orange Peel, and the Food Co-Op it was ultimately just expensive and did not allow me to save money.


Our society is about keeping up with the Jones, having the appearance of success, and spending on the latest things.  Like I said before, I can afford a 200,000 home and I was easily approved for one but I simply have no need for a large house.  I'm a very frugal person and a minimalist.  A 2 bedroom home is more than enough for my needs and the money I will be saving, I can use for retirement in addition to having a high quality of life.

$70,000 is more than I would ever expect Vince to earn, considering his previous job was at Home Depot making $11/hour (per his own admission).  Sure he's got a couple side hustles but we all know those dont net him much money

$70k may not be a lot of money depending on your perspective, but for a single man w no children in rural NC its enough to live comfortably.

He doesn't really post that many bullshit claims.  You just claim bullshit on everything he says.  Even when he says he is going to buy some broke ass car from an auction :)

I agree that wage is bullshit, but who cares? 

I'd be happy to live in that house he bought.  Looks fine for me.  Sounds ridiculously cheap.  Better than having a shitty giant mortgage.

I realise you're an older gent and you did okay back in the day - but the reality of these days is pretty grim.  If your parents don't give you any money, you're stuck working hard just to get a deposit so you can get like 90% of a house price lent to you :-/

He doesn't really post that many bullshit claims.  You just claim bullshit on everything he says.  Even when he says he is going to buy some broke ass car from an auction :)

50 years ago everyone working could buy property and pay it off. The cost of housing in Australia and Canada, for example, is making ownership almost impossible for younger people. I am well aware of that. There isn't really any solution. Goodrum has got what he wants so good for him. I don't begrudge him for that. He didn't buy a Jaguar so who cares? We all know he will post things that he gets excited about. Lots of people chime is so his threads are always entertaining. He sees a post from me and immediately assumes I am putting shit on him. LOL. When I give him advices he doesn't listen. For example, when his relationship broke up I encouraged him to move out of that small town and go to a city where he could get a job. Then he claims I am shitting on him. The truth is other people here do that. He gets the same responses even when I leave his threads alone.

You fucking moron....this isn't 50 years ago.   Things have changed greatly.  You bag on people for not having any degrees and continue to boast about your Master degree when the cost of annual tuition in your Old Testament days was about 400 dollars.   Houses were 12,000 dollar, a decent car was 2500, and a gallon of gas was 30 cents.   

Inflation has made buying things in life very expensive....that's why I created these (Fuck this shit, I have a better idea) threads for......But lets face the facts.  You can say whatever you want about me but the sad fact is that you've wasted your entire life.   A meaningless Mr Canada title from a contest you organized and picked the judges, a last place finish in the Mr Australia in a show you couldn't fix....your years of begging and pleading for your blue stars, you losing your gym and having to live in a warehouse.   You have nothing Vince Basile and your name will not even be a typo in the history of bodybuilding.   You are a loser Vince Basile because your never took your bodybuilding aspirations to the next level to actually win some shows.   You are a failure and no amount of insults directed at me is going to change it.

My bad. Not sure why I thought is was North Carolina. A Zillow home search suggests that NC is more expensive.

The median price of homes currently listed in Greenville is $160,500. According to Zillow, this is what $160K will get you,

I paid for the land but it has a management fee on it...195.00 a month.  The other property I have is all wooded area (investment property)....would cost way too much to clear and set up.   I can grow a garden if I want but it will likely be in pots if I was to do something.   


Even without DSL or cable internet, it gets a good 4G cell phone signal so I'll just use a Samsung DEX device.  I'll get Dish or Direct TV to cover my entertainment needs likely although I am also considering HughesNet Gen 5.  I'm checking with my currect provider ATT as to what I use each month.  But iy doesnt matter.....its all about the location

Vince, check out some of the forums on the subject.  Tons of great tips that aren't found elsewhere.  Ways to keep your investment looking brand new, year after year.

Also, maybe it's too late for this advice, but: think about staying in your current place for a month or so, and give those brand new materials some time to process out a little.  Let's just say it won't hurt your health to do that, certainly.

Here is the point broken down. You bought your home. Cool. You picked a trailer court to live in. Cool. When someone posts homes in the area that we can both agree are almost 100k over what you paid, you post an ignorant comment like "HOA fees for those are high" which then opens the door for the reasonably sane to say "But Vince,  YOU are paying more in "management fees" for your 57K home than some in million dollar homes are paying so PLEASE don't use HOA fees as a reason to diss those properties

Vince, check out some of the forums on the subject.  Tons of great tips that aren't found elsewhere.  Ways to keep your investment looking brand new, year after year.

Also, maybe it's too late for this advice, but: think about staying in your current place for a month or so, and give those brand new materials some time to process out a little.  Let's just say it won't hurt your health to do that, certainly.


Thread was not created for advice.  Plan for home has been in the works for over a year so I don't need another month.  Lets just say that I'm old enough to make decisions

Well, Melvin, you said a mouthful there. Surely the collective advices of Getbiggers is superior to what you came up with?

About time you got off your high horse and had sensible conversations with others. Or maybe you are too smart by half?!

Melvin, you have no shame and very little class. No wonder you resort to insults instead of accepting good advice.

I am doing quite well and have no complaints. Life has been good to me and I still enjoy what I do.

Just got back home from closing and its all done.   I'm now a homeowner.   I also found out to my astonishment that there is a high speed internet provider, Vivint, in the area I'm in which will save me a lot of money overall along with allowing me to do my online gaming since I'll get 100MPS speeds if I want to. ;D

What do those exorbitantly high HOA fees cover?

Formaldehyde is in practically every product in life.  You buy a new car, that fresh car smell is just that....sigh.  It will be gone in a week in terms of smell

If you pay $95 a mo HOA fee you're a bottom wife.

Interesting....  If someone hires a gardener, would it make them a bottom wife even though they have no husband?

I paid for the land but it has a management fee on it...195.00 a month.  The other property I have is all wooded area (investment property)....would cost way too much to clear and set up.   I can grow a garden if I want but it will likely be in pots if I was to do something.   


Even without DSL or cable internet, it gets a good 4G cell phone signal so I'll just use a Samsung DEX device.  I'll get Dish or Direct TV to cover my entertainment needs likely although I am also considering HughesNet Gen 5.  I'm checking with my currect provider ATT as to what I use each month.  But iy doesnt matter.....its all about the location


He pays $195/month management fees.

What services does that management fee include? Townhouses and condos generally come with association fees which cover all exterior maintenance, basic cable and garbage.

Just looked up a million dollar home with HOA's cheaper than yours

Was it a single family home or a condo? Single family homes around here have pretty low HOA's that don't cover much of anything.

I suspect he's talking about the building's materials, such as carpeting, off-gassing VOC's which are sometimes toxic.

VOCs, or volatile organic compounds, are chemical byproducts found in many building supplies and products. Treated wood, insulation, carpeting, paints and cabinets all contain VOCs that will evaporate or off-gas into the air.

I am doing quite well and have no complaints. Life has been good to me and I still enjoy what I do.

Warehouses which have been converted to condo's/lofts are in demand in bigger cities around the world. Here is a photo of one in Melbourne, Australia.

Pretty nice and very trendy.
