I had to put my house in Lakeland up for sale, when I moved to Jacksonville. So I rent an apartment right now, but I'm looking in to building a couple of urban townhome units, where I can stay in one and sell the other two to pay for the cost of constructing it.

I was 17 and I paid $100k built on land my parents own so it helped me out a ton!

I'm still a renter. I've got a nice rowhouse in Winston-Salem's Brookstown area until December 2004. I was looking at a 1912 rowhouse in West End but it was sold the day after I toured it. Asking price was $204,800. Not bad for a 3 story home in walking distance from Moring Dew Coffee Roasters 4th Street Filling Station and Rubber Soul music venue. Location is very important to me. I have to walk or take a bus everywhere. I don't have a car. :blink:

No house yet. Maybe in about 10 years when I'm done with college & have an actual job. Until then I'll be renting an undersized overpriced apartment.

Dropped out of college and got a job making more money than I was suppose to make with my college degree :lol: . Industry, location, job demand are big factors. I'm not trying to say dropping out of college is a good idea, in fact I regret not being more serious about it. But if you leave college early and find a well paying job, it's pretty easy to afford a house.

Also, it's not like I had 130K laying around. Look at it this way, a nice one bedroom apartment in Atlanta suburbs is 600 a month, it's 800 or so in an older, close in neighborhood and almost a 1000 in the city. For my 130K hosue I pay a little under 900 a month including taxes, insurance, all of the usual BS.

I was 25 when I bought my first house for $80K in Lakeland. I'm 26 now and I plan to build something here in Jax now.

Live in and own a suburban villa. It's basically a single family home just connected on one side. If you can find the money for the down payment, it's so much better than renting. It was 135.

Also looking to buy and/or develop more properties in South Florida.

Single Family home just inside the city limits. Close proximity to major highways, important to me because I drive all over the East Coast with work. Still close to major shopping districts and the downtown area.
