    No, I have a good setup though at the moment. Planning ahead for the future though, I'm on track for a somewhat significant promotion in the next year and a half or so. If I get it, then I'll buy a home and be here for the "long haul". If not, I'll be looking to move back to Florida I think .

    Yes. Outright but still pay a ton for HOA, tax and insurance.

    no. houses here all cost 500 k minimum. I should have bought a house like in 2006 I could have gotten an easy loan and houses were about 250k.

    I could buy a house easily if I move somewhere inland in California or nevada,possibly upland,ca.

    Own a condo. Have to pay monthly maintenance fees though, so that sucks.

    Me too, or the bank does. But rent (incl maintenance water / heat) + mortgage is at least 50% - 75% less than renting.

    Yes, own it outright, and have zero property taxes and only $25 a month of maintenance fees.

    Yes, 16 years left to pay.
    Substantial amount of equity presently but looking towards some home improvements in the future. Mostly flooring upgrades and to turn unfinished laundry room into a fourth bedroom. Which I’m gonna try and not dip into that equity to do so.
