I owned my house in Indy for 17 years, but we bought it when we had a lot of debt, and it was cheaper than renting; but we didn't get out of the other debt: and got burned. We ended up putting a new roof, new HVAC, new Sewer Line, and new Hot Water Heater in all in 10 months, financed $35,000 in less than 1 year. Paid that off AFTER we sold the house 12 years after we moved out of the house and rented it for 10 years, 15 years after we bought it all.
Right now we rent from the US Army, and live on the base that we work at. It is nice to pick up the phone and say "hot water heater doesn't work. come fix it". Saving $30K a year towards buying a house when we retire. plus a bunch into retirement, which we never could before.
Spending $1500/mo renting a 600sq ft 1 bedroom apt... but it comes with an assigned/covered parking, building has a pool and is pet friendly (dog run, tennis court, amd a little playground for kids) so that's not too bad all things considered.
I will be in the United States for the next four months, and I need somewhere to stay. Have any suggestions for us? You have my utmost appreciation. Music is always my favorite time of the day such as ranboo.
