Buying a house

So, I should be buying a house here in San Diego sometime this summer, hopefully in the next month or two. Here's the front runner right now, going to check it out Monday. Got a whole list of ones I'm touring with the Realtor tomorrow. It's such a great time to buy here, home values have tanked over 40% in most areas.

Way too hot for me, but I wish you all the luck in the world. I could get into a lot of trouble out there.

Dude are quality homes in San Diego like that really listing for $265,000? Damn TeleAtlas maps don't have a scale bar but that doesn't look too far from downtown.

A home like that 3 years ago was probably $500,000.

Maybe I need to look at investment property out there?

I'm saying this but I could look in my own hood. I just saw a few homes that sold for under $40,000 right around my street. For how little that is I'd just knock down the place and set up a fire ring and tent in the summer.

I'm trying to unload my uncle's place in the Gold Coast where similar units were selling for $870,000 in 2007. I'm asking $550,000+parking and getting a few bites. Wish I could hang onto it but the taxes and condo assessments are $2000/m.

Blah, Blah, Blah
