Hmm... The choice between something that will improve my financial situation, or something that could greatly put my financial situation in peril... Tough choice... I'll go with down payment!

I've brought myself to forgive a 'great many things' on Swagbucks since the beginning, but what you guys just did to SBTV (lord hold me back).....that--that's a complete and utter travesty.

Ugh, I agree! It's nice that they increased the daily limit, but I believe they only did that because they know it would be IMPOSSIBLE to reach that amount unless you're sitting on your computer for all day and night doing nothing but SBTV. Not to mention, it takes 15 swagbucks now just to earn 3 swagbucks, if you're watching videos that consists of five videos each that is. It's ridiculous, so many people complained about the old swagbucks but this is just horrendous.

Totally on an unrelated note....who hates this new site setup? Maybe I'm just a stickler for routine, but the site was fine the way it was before; AKA yesterday. Now nothings in the same place and they replaced the cute lil inbox letter into a drawer? Is that what is suppose to be? Because when I think of mail I think of drawers, doesn't everyone? Lol thanks for the heads up swagteam, maybe they were considerate to send a memo of the changes (I haven't checked my ugly new inbox yet), or i would at least hope.

Picked dream wedding but we were also able to get a VA loan for our house and didn't have to do a down payment. :)

I said dream wedding because I put a down payment on my house before I got married. I liked that I was able to make the down payment on my home with out help from a significant other or parent. Since I had the expense of the down payment for my house out of the way before wedding planning even began I didn't feel guilty about money being spent on something so memorable. We did spend any money gifted to us as and extra payment to the principal balance on the home.

Biologically, XX chromosomes = female, and XY = male. Yet XXX, XYY, and other combinations exist. Couldn't those be other?

And not only do some people not identify with their biological sex, some people don't feel the urge to tie themselves down to a single gender (except for culture bonking them on the head with it).

For those of you who have either XX or XY genes and identify with the gender you were born with, be glad for your good luck. People who don't get this good luck are much less likely to enjoy life like they should, plus they are more likely to get depressed and commit suicide. And all this over an issue that doesn't hurt anybody else.

It's pretty clear that Caitlyn would choose one of the "(I'm a female)" answers.

I've been married 18 years so I guess I have some experience. While I love my wife dearly, always spend money on the house. A wedding last a couple of hours. Never spend a bunch of money on something that's so temporary. I know my wife would agree.

Instead what I heard was a bunch of people talking about music and bits and pieces of various music videos. I was extremely disappointed. Also, has anyone noticed that we now have to listen to 12 videos to get three swagbucks whereas previously we needed only to listen to ten videos to get three swagbucks?

A house will last a lifetime.

The choice is easy for me. We spent less than $2000 for our wedding, including our honeymoon. Would not do it any other way. Expensive weddings are unnecessary and a waste of money.

Should be a category for neither. A down payment/mortgage is the completely wrong way to buy a property. Get the cheapest property you can in cash and keep trading up. Even renting is better.

I wouldn't say that renting is never recommended by financial advisors. They will certainly advise renting if you can't make at least a 10% down payment (though 20% is better) or you plan to move in less than 5 years. Also, PITI is only part of the cost of home ownership. You should be setting aside money for home maintenance and have an emergency fund of 3-6 months of expenses at a minimum before buying a home. That way you won't need to put off needed maintenance because you can't afford it or take on additional debt when you need a new water heater or the the roof springs a leak. Being a home owner isn't worth it if it make you house poor.

The cheapest home for sale in my area is a $130,000 mobile home (meaning there's still a site rental and no land ownership), in a rough neighborhood. I suppose I *could* move my kids away from all of their grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins to a state where homes are much cheaper. But I'd rather keep my mortgage!

Keeping the kids near family is good. I have many cousins, all over the globe really, that when we were young, WE moved away from and NYC. Sadly, I really don't KNOW most of them anymore. My son knows a few of them, and his kids know a couple of them. Sad. Stay close to family unless the area becomes too dangerous.

That's what we're doing. We found an average home in a safe neighborhood and took the mortgage. Didn't have *everything* we wanted, but it has everything we needed, and great neighbors to boot!

The original poster may be right about avoiding mortgage, but he neglects to take any other factors into account. (Like family, safety, job market, realtor fees, taxes...)

Renting is putting your hard-earned money into someone else's property and is never recommended by financial advisors. Suggesting someone pay for an entire house with cash shows a complete lack of understanding about "regular" people, and a privileged life where money is not earned. Who the hell can afford to pay cash for an entire house? Ridiculous answer.

LadyRadagu and 2 others liked this  
Sorry, couldn't disagree more. Even with paying interest on a mortgage, you are building equity that could be used to offset the cost of a mortgage on a better property (if desired). Renting merely pays the bills for someone else; if/when you move, you have nothing to show for the money you have spent, and renting isn't necessarily cheaper than a mortgage payment. I don't know where you live, but even the cheapest houses in my area cost $40,000. Of course, people shouldn't get mortgages larger than they can afford, but renting gets you nowhere unless you can save a large enough sum between rent and what a starter-home mortgage would cost.
CherryRed70

Completely agree with you MoneyLadyO. Our mortgage for a 4 bdrm 2 bath is almost $100 less than what we were paying in rent for a 4bdrm 2 bath. And now we actually have a front and back yard. And pets. Plus we have the freedom to decorate any way we want and not have to worry about getting charged for holes the size of TACKS. I thought that was absurd.

But most people can't afford to buy a house in cash. The cheapest house I've ever seen in my area was $7000. But it needed major renovation just to make it safe to live in, and it would take like 10 years for us to save that much.

Are you insane?! You can't even get a new car for $7000, let alone a house! Where I live the cheapest house is over $150,000! I would buy a house for 7k in a heartbeat! Even if it did need renovating.

2 - most folks (at least those on swagbucks, no surprise there!) are pretty practical
3 - the desire for a dream wedding seems to be equally popular among men and women (around 8% of each gender chose the wedding)
