    Talking Finally! I'm a homeowner!

    Well, it is finally over. After getting shafted repeatedly by an incompetent loan officer, I went over her head and got everything done. We closed today, in what has to be the most exhausting experience of my life. It should've taken 45 minutes, but took 6 hours. But even as exhausted as I am, I'm still excited about my "biggest Christmas present ever" (to myself). It's sitting on 10.81 acres. Here's some pics:

    Unfortunately, no. The TV goes with the sellers. It is HUGE!. I stood beside it this morning, and realized that I couldn't reach from one side to the other, and I'm 5'11"


    I paid $192K + closing costs + 1 yr homeowners insurance, + $325 appraisal + $500 survey = ~$206K lock, stock, and barrel.

    Oh, and I got a ~$2000 (my best guess) professional air compressor that originally came from the seller's tire store for $300. It's big enough to run a tire mounting machine. I think it has an 80 or 100 gallon tank. It's taller than me.

    I'm moving to TN. That's a good price for all that you get. You would need to double that that get a small condo around here and still have to pay $400/month in condo fees. Congratulations on your new pad.

    Then, by all means, look at http://www.realtracs.com

    It's Tennessee's official realtor MLS site. You can search and filter by almost anything. By the way, are you really moving, or just wishfull thinking?

    Here's the terraserver pic with the actual survey plat cleaned up and resized to fit on it. The plat is shaped kinda funny, but it follows the lay of the land up a hill. There's another flat spot up there where my parents are going to build a small house in a couple of years, so I can take care of them as they get older.

    edit: This picture was made right after the house was built, so the metal building and the pool/deck aren't there yet.

    I think it is wishfull thinking.

    Small shacks in my neighborhood go for over 800,000. Your place would be in the tens of millions in my hood.

    My parents neighbors just sold their house. It is about 2500 square foot house, on a 5,000-8,000 sq foot lot (mind you, that is just about 1/8 of an acre) and it sold for 1.2 million.

    Damn, L.A. is expensive.
