The shrills are doing 1 stars on these topics.
Gold has risen in the last 24 months about $900. That is more than the 1980 rise in total.
I don't deny that you bought at 80k but your description and price is way off. A 3-story home is a triplex and are typically found only in specific areas in large cities. Including property and cost to build, the home cost is much higher than 300k.
But you said: "I was smart and on par with you".
So can I:
No way a 3-story house could have been valued at $300k in 2006 and, now way would a bank sell a "new" house property at a 75% discount, even in crummystate Nevada.
