    In my neighborhood your home would probably be right around $600k, assuming its 2500-3000 (ish) sq. ft.

    While I believe you are correct, that's not true in my case. I believe many of my neighbors over extend themselves on their home purchase, and use these "interest only" and balloon loans. I have financed my home on a 15 year note and work very hard toward paying it off. Fortunately all you see in the picture [and some you don't] can be paid for from my salary alone.
    The above post is my 2 cents....nothing more.

    Yeah but you are in California. Personally I'd rather live there but not at those prices.

    Always good to hear, there are WAY too many people that do over extend themselves with all kinds of financing options as well as credit cards. They end up with no equity in their house and debt up the a$$, definatly no way to live. Hell, 15 years is excellent considering most people end up with 30 year mortgages. Now some banks are offering 40 years, very scary thought.

    I preach exactly what you are saying to friends and family all the time but nobody listens. This "creative" financing stuff scares the crap out of me. I'm lucky enought to have been able to pay cash for my place but if I didn't I would certainly have gotten a 15 year fixed rate.

    Re: What does your house look like?

    JCM and Destroyer I agree with you both. I have a very close friend that I attended residency with that has an enormous house, nice cars, and tens of thousands of dollars in credit card debt. He has to work as a traveler to make enough money to get by, yet he and his wife continue to buy and buy....on credit. I believe he will always live this way, and it defies reason. It's like a sickness.

    That's awesome that you can pay cash for a home, not many people are that successful while so young. That will save you tons of green in the long run.

    I'm currently on a 15 year adjustable rate but I plan on paying it off in 10 or less. People really don't understand on how much they're losing when they finance (or overspend, in my opinion) for 30 years. You may be paying tens of thousands more if you finance for 30 years and it really adds up!

    Destroyer- You mean a bank transfer right? You confused me when you said "with cash"...

    I mean a cashiers check for the amount of my home. Not a briefcase stuffed with the cash.
