mannnn fuck the housing market...
me and my partner are both so fed up with living with our parents individually,I rly cant tolerate living with my entitled sister anymore, and my partner's parents dont like dogs so their dog doesn't get to do dog stuff in the house, the list of grievances there goes on and on.
we have been looking for a place to live for almost a year now. rent is too pricey, and landlords here are robber barrons that'll squeeze every dime out of you (known by my partner's sister and her family who has moved around my town quite a bit and has seen this in action)
also to buy a house the cheapest you can get anything is 150k, and then on those houses you need about another 20-40k in work to fix whatever and clear mold out and make it livable for my partner who needs certain conditions because of health complications.
My partner was talking to their sister the other day. who's currently in process of building a house, said that it would literally be cheaper to build a small house and have the local Amish do it. Partner's bro in law also is looking to buy land which we could build on, then rent from them, luckily materials are pretty cheap here in the Northwoods and there is no shortage of wood or land to build on so its a real possibility
hopefully that works out, but it is still at least a year and a half into the future. its still just hard financially being a college student and also living in a growing area where prices of everything are going up and up. and jobs dont pay nearly enough round these parts especially for somebody who can only work full time 4 months out of the year
still banking on the housing market to collapse again so shit becomes affordable an maybe just maybe we can get into a not moldy house that doesn't need 30k in work that costs under 120k
also I could live in the town I go to school to, where things are a lil cheaper which is 30 miles away from where I live now but its kinda dogshit except for the campus and theres nothing to do and def not in the best environmental condition considering there are corporate farms that get absolutely blasted with glycophate pesticides for 5 months of the year surrounding it. my parter's health would not allow that
fuck corporate farms too but thats another rant...
