amused at my realtor's innumeracy
Dude, we went over this. Realturds want to bleed you, the buyer, for as much as possible, so they can get a bigger commission, regardless of whether they (allegedly) represent you or the seller. She was counting on you not to do the math.
I know, it's been painfully obvious since day one. I just wish they were a little less transparent with their intentions.
Part of her argument for going to the higher range is to get me into a "community" where I will ostensibly have an easier time meeting ladies. I see a few problems with this strategy: 1) computer nerds tend to eschew social interactions not on their own terms, 2) I already have at least five different groups of friends that consume much of my spare time and energy, and 3) what kind of young, single lady is going to move into a luxury townhome community with prices starting in the low 400's?
Tomorrow we're going to look at a couple of properties I almost certainly won't buy. I've been doing my own research and found some decent condominiums with attached garages that cost half as much as the above figure and would have a comparable monthly payment to what I'm paying in rent right now. I think the choice is going to have to be between one of those, or to continue renting.
And since I've decided against moving back to California, not draining my savings means I would also be able to allocate funds to more important things, like R-compound street tires, a cold air intake, and maybe headers.
