Condo hunting

While I was home for a week, Meine Schwester made me read a book called The Automatic Millionaire. It seems that I am doing all the right things towards becoming a millionaire except for one: investing in real estate. So since then, I’ve been going out on weekends to open houses.

I liked the second place I ever looked at, but at that point, I wasn’t ready to really make a decision. The next weekend I found another place I was interested in, but it was too pricey. In the meantime, I found lots of places where I didn’t want to live, or where their pet policies were too strict, or were too expensive.

Over the last month, the second place I liked decided to hack a bit of the price off. So I made an offer that was lower than they were asking, and they came back with a counter offer splitting the difference. It was exciting. And now I’m in escrow. I feel like such a grown up. I can’t wait until this all goes through and I can move in!

You are probably wondering what Meine Scwester will be doing. For now, she will live in the den until she figures out what her next move is. Stay tuned for more!

    When you’re a millionaire, will you pay the airfare when we come visit? How about paying to upgrade friends & family to first class?

    When you’re rich, can I get a corner room in the nursing home, with a view of the front door so I can see who’s coming?

  3. Sure. You all can have whatever you want. Who else wants stuff?
