Decorative or not?
@creeper, that's true, I guess it is just getting your foot in the door that is the real struggle. I don't think about the sellers perspective I guess because I'm so tired of moving, when I finally get out of the rent game you'll have to burn the house down to get me out. But yea, your profit margins are drastically higher than ours. I don't expect to make even $60-80k when I sell..and thanks for confirming I'm not the only one that doesn't speak Gollum. = )
@yummy, lol! I understand, I grew up in LA - moving here was a huge culture shock. Inner Dallas & Ft Worth both are just now starting to vamp up their downtown areas to be the "hip urban" areas modeled after NY & the like. Its starting to catch on, condos, townhomes & apt lofts in those areas are springing up everywhere. If I didn't have a child I'd probably be there myself. But the suburbs here have most everything the bigger cities do except nightlife appeal. Only bad aspect is the commute to/from work - 45 min each way, bleh. But get that Howdy up & start saying "y'all ain't" and when you buy my block, please put in a community pool & dog park, that's all I'm asking! Buy a knock down for 600k??? I think I'm going to faint.
