Thinking of all the money my parents(and most people) throw away as interest is sad.
    You got a point there, and I'm basically the same with my house. The thing with Canada anyways is real estate some areas doubled in 3 years, so now property taxes are already on the up and up. Then even low interest rate mortgages you give the bank so much in interest. You can't win unless you are born wealthy maybe.

    My point is that people get into spiraling debt sometimes only because they just need the food or toilet paper that day or right.
    It's sad, but whole banking system is designed to get you shackled in debt instead of looking long term into mutual funds, real estate, etc.

    Sorry off topic the Mirage is very economical!

    Here's a pic from when I first saw it at the showing, which I went to en route to the first Midwest Mirage Meet. Not quite teardown bad Fummins, but you nearly nailed the price, 37K.
    Wow. $37,000!

    That doesn't buy you a tool shed in my neck of the woods. I have a nice 1200sf house in a good neighborhood I paid $175,000 for in early 2014. It is worth $280,000 now...! Housing prices have gotten crazy anywhere within striking distance of Seattle.

    Couldn't have done it without the help of a bank.

    I bought when prices were high in 13' paid 265 for a tiny 2 story. Prices came down a bit since then, I dumped 20k into it last summer and sold it for 265. Thankfully had enough equity to pay off the reno and have money for down payment on a bigger place. Hardest part I found buying the first place was coming up with 5% down payment when living cheque to cheque.
