How Many Here Own A Home?Submitted by zooamerica on Sun, 07/20/2014 - 21:32
I was wondering how many people here at the Daily Paul own/have a mortgage on their own home?
I ask because since becoming a, "home owner," I have changed in many mysterious ways.
I used to live in an apartment, and would probably still live there if it were not for the cockroaches that invaded my dwelling through every crack and crevice.
To be polite, the people that lived beneath me were not born in America and didn't like to clean.
They were evicted, and after they left the apartment the door was left wide open so I decided to walk in and after about 4 steps I walked right back out.
Everyone in the entire building (14 units) had to clean out their cupboards and drawers to get, "professionally sprayed," as the apartment manager said, and have, "professional," people enter their, "homes," while they were away at work.
After finding a cockroach in my dresser drawer one morning, and woke up in the middle of the night taking a leak with a cockroach on the bathroom wall I went to the Home Depot the next day ready to destroy the roaches myself.
Boy, was I dumb.
The, "professionals," were just inept I said, and decided to take matters into my own hands.
24 roach traps, half a roll of duct tape to cover the cupboard cracks, countless cans of Raid, three, (3!) "professionally sprayed," applications to every apartment in the building complex and a bottle of boric acid later, I was traumatized and horrified by roaches.
Cockroach crawling on my dinner cooking on the stove.
That was it, I was done as dinner and a dead cockroach living in an apartment.
2 months later I moved in to my own home with land, and will never look back.
To add a twist, I moved in to my first home on Friday the 13th.
Cross my heart and hope to die if I lie, this is my own true experience.
What was your first home buying experience like?
I hope it wasn't as horrifying as mine!
Life is amazing.
Life is incredible.
Thank You, God.
