When my family moved into our new house (I was like 12), my parents gave me their old bed which was cool because it was Queen sized. The bed was pretty old though. 1980's shite. Well fast forward through puberty to my senior year in Highschool and the bed is falling apart now ( :pimp:) and I'm basic...

See it's tough for me because it's less about the money and more about the actual work. If I enjoyed what I did, Money would be the last factor unless it was a very substantial amount. But what you do and who you work with are, in some ways, invaluable. ...

Similar situation. I Like the company I work for just not the role they've assigned me to for the last 6 months (Looks like it could last from 3-5 years). I'm anticipating another offer from a much larger company that can provide much better opportunities than the role I'm currently in. Will be havi...

Flooring, conservatively is $3/sf. If you spend that amount to replace it, you will get over that back out of the house when selling. It's amazing what new floors can do to the value of a home.
So roughly estimate $4,200 and that may be on the high side. Anything sweat equity you can add is huge...

If you're in the BR Area, [i]Prime Lending[/i] does home renovation mortgages. Generally the interest rate and PMI can be on the higher side, but they are one of the only lenders in this area that do that type of financing. They'll factor in renovations with the price of the home into one loan. What...

May be a good deal if the price is right but for a foreclosure what you see it was you get. They will unlikely repair anything before purchase.
Also, you will only get a loan for the home appraises for. Something to keep in mind. ...
