Jande BS: officially homeless (61* d) RE: BS: officially homeless 23 Apr 01

Sorry t hear about your troubles Peg.

I just wanted to add that often, when you take it all into consideration, you rmonthly mortgage for a house is usuall much *less* than you are forced to pay for rent.

The beautiful house I live in now costs around $700/month to _buy_, compared to $1200 a month for a comparable sized rental. And no rental yet has been able to compare to this gorgeous place!

When we first started looking for apartments in the $800/month bracket we were appalled at the unkempt places that were going for that price. We almost settled for one of those, but then a dear friend got a bit angry with us and said essentially, "Go direstly for what you want now! Don't put it off." We determined to take his advice. After two months of living in hotels, and looking at shabby overpriced apartments, we found this house on the first day! Not only that but it was already empty and waiting for us to move in on a rental basis before the closing date.

I hope you won't find this too presumptuous (you don't know me after all) but... Whatever it is you feel is the most important thing for you to do, I can only pass on my friend's advice. Go directly for it now!

~ Jande, who hopes you find the home of your dreams.
