I know I wish I could. Seriously. I'm probably in the worst place for prices (NYC) but hey... The lowest you can get for a house/condo around here is $100,000. I've got $10,000, my fiance has $9000. We make $3300 combined per month after tax. I'm 24 and she's 31. It would be nice to move into one of these before she hits 40 and I hit 30. That would be a dream come true. Well, I guess I have to see how fast I can write 1,000,000 reviews on ReviewStream or something, because that would give me $400,000 right there. Fingers crossed...

Yeah I would love to be able to buy my own house but I have no where near the money to do that. I would like to buy a house somewhere much warmer then here up in Michigan. It's still snowing here and it's getting close to the middle of April. Yes I can't really wait to leave this town because it sucks pretty bad.

I agree with all of the above. It would be so cool and helpful to have just maybe, not a million, but like 400k or 500k, somewhere around there. That way you could: *Buy house/condo *Not quit your job, but work a LOT less hours. I know if I had 200 or 300k I would only work 16 hours (2 days) per week instead of the depressing full 40 hours. There would be no reason for me to work 40 hours cuz I no longer would be paying rent. When you look at it, rent is the murderer of everyone's income. Its the biggest bill we got, its not expensive but its the highest one we have out of all. With a condo bought and working 2 days a week each, my girl and I would be bringing in around $12,000 combined after tax per year. That would cover most bills and not spoil the 200k lump sum or whatever. That's the coolest part about it.

Good luck on review stream. I just looked over that site and am thinking about singing up with it. It doesn't seem to bad and one day i would like to own my own house and live with my boyfriend whom i love very much. Living on my won would be a great asset to me right now as i really do need it and i strive everyday just making it through with the money i have. Being unemployed and having no luck finding a job is very hard. If you come to Florida you might get lucky getting a house here with around 60,000 dollars. I want to say Good Luck in making the money you want.

Wish your dream come true.Certainly having your own home is a big asset in terms of money and happiness. Try to save as much as possible ,work hard and hope your own house comes trues much faster than what you expect.
