For years I had been dreaming of owning a home, but I had a tendency to put off the idea for as long as I could. I am a pretty laid-back person and I have always had a desire to own a home that doesn’t involve a mortgage. So, I decided to give it a try for 2 years.
I have to admit, the first few months were pretty rough. I was living in my parents’ house and I was basically living out of my car and not much else. I think a lot of people go through that same thing.
mike, for those of you who are reading this, I understand that you have a car. I think I have had this same problem for awhile as well. I was living in my parents house for 5 years and my parents went through their own financial crises a few years ago. I had to move out of my parents house and into a crappy apartment when I moved out. I was still paying rent and car payment so I had to sell my car to pay for the mortgage.
Well, the solution to your problem might be to go to a local garage or mechanic. When I had to sell my car, I ended up with a bad transmission. I ended up having to fix it myself and I ended up getting a new car. I don’t know if that can be considered a solution, but the first thing I did was go to my local garage or mechanic.
Most mechanics and garages sell you a new car after it’s been sitting for a while. If you do the math, that means you have to drive the car to the garage or mechanic for the new car, then drive the old car back home. The car may be working, but you still have to drive it. If you’re not careful, you will end up spending more money on repairs than on the car itself.
Now most people that drive cars are aware that the new car is at the dealership every few months for a tune-up. It’s also most likely that you are aware that the sales person at the dealership is out of control. Because it’s possible that you could end up buying a car that is not actually new. My own car had a few rust spots on the interior, and it required a major tune-up at the dealership.
One of the things I have found is that the dealerships are very good about giving you a car that has been used. Because you might end up buying a car that does not actually have any original paint or body work, its important that you keep that in mind when you are talking to the dealer. Many dealerships will offer to fix or replace any imperfections before you make the purchase.
As it turns out, my car was not the only one that needed major work. Of the 1,700 or so cars that I have owned, I have found that at least half of them had at least one imperfection. Even a car that has a ton of original work will still have imperfections. What is more shocking is that even after such work, it still ends up looking as dirty, as dusty, and as rusty as it did before it was done.
There’s nothing wrong with having a car that might need some work, but the fact is that the vast majority of car buyers don’t realize they have to do something to get the vehicle they want. Most dealerships think they know what they’re doing and will simply replace any imperfection with a new one for a few thousand dollars.
It seems like every week there’s a new example of this. The biggest one from a recent time was a car that needed new tires. That was the reality of the situation, but the dealer didn’t know what he was doing, so he just gave it a huge repair bill. The same thing happened with a Chevy that needed new engine blocks, but the dealer didn’t know what he was doing, so he just gave it a huge repair bill.
