True. For the most part the houses here are super new or you have them built your way. So my parents, sister and relatives who all own haven't had any major issues like that happen. Although, I'm sure it happens. I would much rather invest in something that is mine versus renting.

We just leased a nice ass 2 yr old, 3 bedroom 3 bath 2,000 sq. Ft house for $850 in KY. But I'll be babysitting in home to help DH with the bills (even though we could do it without me.)

I thought you already moved out of your moms a long time ago? Do working wages not match close to the cost of living ....that's wild lol

In Alaska our rent was $1600.



We both worked, had no debt, managed money wisely.

nope, minimum wage is $7.25 which is nowhere near being able to survive on that alone..DH makes almost $20 an hour, works 40 hours a week and we're still trying to figure things out..
