For anyone who will put up with a bit of my life story, I would value your opinion... I live modestly in a 2 bedroom 1 1/2 bath condo that I bought 3 years ago for $63K. I have two boys, 11 and 15 that stay with me on the weekends. They share a bunk bed in one room and I'm in the other. I still pay the ex $1K / month in child support so this is as good as it gets - at least I thought so until today. I have 3 jobs - well, 1 1/2 + a new photography gig doing 360° virtual tours for real estate as some of you already know. The part time job is advertising and general tech support in the evenings at a Re/Max office for a broker with a fairly large team. He is also the biggest client for my photography business and a good friend. Recently he bought a brand new home in a new development to rent. He bought it for $250K and today they're selling for $350K. It's SWEET. 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath, 2 Car Garage, BIG Yard, new neighborhood. 1800 SqFt under air. My condo is 900 SqFt. You know where this is going Condo's in my complex are selling for over $165K now. That's a net of over $100K that I could realize in just 3 years. I could sell, put the money in the bank and live large - BUT the payments would be a lot more than what I'm paying now. Currently my mortgage payment is $650 + $200 in condo fees. I would be paying him $1500 / month. What's interesting is that he's paying me just about that much in photography fees + the part time evening deal. Geez, I could rationalize this thing all day long. I just wonder what real estate will be like in 7 years when I'm finally done paying the ex... What would you do?
