    Damn, L.A. is expensive.

    Crap! This house is 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath, and is 2450 sq. ft. I'll make someone a terrific deal at only $999,999! What a bargain!

    But seriously, the house and 5 acres appraised for $205k. The house with all the land appraised for $225k, so I got a really good deal, but I'll NEVER deal with US Bank again. The loan officer in Cincinatti told 4 different stories to 4 different people: me, my wife, the title company manager, and my realtor. Of course, she should have known that we all were going to be in the same room together today, but I guess she thinks that her lies will never catch up with her.

    Anyway, I called her boss today and unloaded. I went off for a good 15 minutes about how incopetent, deceitful, arrogant, and rude she was. So she apologized for the incopetence and arrogance of her subordinate, and refunded $648 worth of loan origination fees with an apology in writing, and a promise to "fully address" the issues I had with the loan officer.

    Sometimes it really pays to be an ***.

    hehehe. I've decided against buying a riding lawnmower. I'd have to spend at least $3000 to get one that I could mow the front 3 acres (a.k.a. The Yard) with in a day. Then I still wouldn't have anything to take care of the rest of the land. So I'm gonna buy a used tractor and bush hog for around $3000, and buy this: http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/w...12395&R=112395

    It's a 9' 8" gang reel mower. I can get the yard mowed in a hurry with that thing, and it'll look like a golf course.

    That's one heluva starter home! Congratulations!
    And to add my place to the expensive list, 1000sqft 2br 1ba on a 1acre lot for $200k a couple years back.

    I can tell you that mowing the (estimated) 2/3rd acre of grass on an ancient mower every 5 days gets old VERY quick... Let it grow, dude. Let it grow.
    Spend a couple bucks and plant indeginous plants. Or let the local hippie high schoolers or environmental group do it for you...


    Not to spoil your fun, but what is your commute like?

    Actually, I bought this house to shorten my commute. I'm currently driving 1.5 hours each way to work (3 hours round trip!). Once I move, it'll only be 25 minutes.

    I currently spend $500 per month on gas, just getting back and forth to work. I figured I can put a lot of equity into a nice house with that same $500.

    Nice house - I use a riding lawnmower 42inch deck to mow 1 acre
    in less than 45min - cost $800

    I used to mow a church lot - 5 acres in less than 4 hours
