Let me preface this by stating that I think I'm crazy. I love my watch, my new little boat is slick, and well, duh, I cherish my firearms. However, I've found something I want to buy -- A nice piece of land. Without going too deep into my personal finances, I can state that the land is listed at $150k. I think I may be able to get it for $135. I'd probably need 10-20% down. Sadly, I've saved little. I've invested most, and made some stupid decisions in the past. I'm looking at one of two things: 1. Put a contract on the land with the stipulation that my house sells. I may pocket $15-20k from my house. Buy the land, live with my parents for a few months and then consider building a small house that we could add onto later or putting a modular home on said land. 2. Try to buy the land and keep my house. In order to do that, I'd have to have money to put down. So...I figure if I sold all those petty/trivial things, I'd have enough cash to put a decent down payment on the land. I'm torn. I walked the land today and spent over 2 hours with a realtor out there. I've been all over the damn state and I was a land surveyor for 3 years. This is one of the most beautiful/practical tracts that I think I've ever encountered anywhere within a couple hundred miles of here. It's a damn HUGE decision. I have NO idea what to do. Basically, I'm looking for open ears who may have some ideas. Debt on paper: $600/mo house $535/mo truck $245 boat Discuss.
