I have to report that one of my predictions for 2011 has been fulfilled.

"Buy a house in 2011"

My monthly PITI is about 25% below rental parity.

It was a wild process and I learned a lot.

There are a few things to do, ha... there are a lot of things to do, but I am extremely happy.

All my criteria were fulfilled, except the view, but I had to compromise on something.

Congrats Husmanen, delighted to see your patience was rewarded.

Thanks BT. It feels great. Now I will plow all of my OCD-ness into house issues. Nice to change subjects ;-)

I can feel the knowledge of the housing crash/market leaking out of my small brain as I write.

I will miss this forum though. Although it has slowed to a crawl lately, it was one of the major contributors to me not drinking the kool-aid, no matter how hard I tried :-0= My hats' is off to all of you.

Also, thanks to you Lander for your site, it is/was an awesome platform for important and interesting discussion.

I am eternally grateful!

Congrats Hus. You should post a roundup of your buying tips somewhere for those of us who have yet to take the plunge.
