Being House Poor Aint Fun

All real estate is expensive. They aren't making any more land, and those who own property know it.

If you've ever lived under an overwhelming mortgage, you know it's like trying to pull a freight train up a 30-mile-long hill. It sucks the life out of you and ultimately consumes every dime and ounce of energy you can muster.

Don't get so immersed in trying to create a magnificent home that you find yourself without the time or energy to enjoy it. How about a comfortable, affordable home you can afford?

Why Do I Care?

Just yesterday (February 2, 2023) I published a post about the most expensive house for sale right now in Grand Junction, Colorado. That's fine. At the end of the day, though, I'm far more interested in affordable housing. Buying a house is one of the most, if not the most stressful things you'll ever do. Given the wonky market, buying is an impossibility for far too many people. With that, I look for opportunities to share the more affordable properties in town.
