Is $500-$1000 really the average house payment?! Well, maybe I can own a house someday.

I pay $1360.00 each month because my mortgage is for 15 years If I still alive, I have to pay 7th more years. I was suppose to finish in 2017; but I refinanced again. Now I have to pay five more years.

We paid cash for our home with life insurance money when a loved one passed on. Our landlord let our home go into foreclosure, and we NEVER wanted to be forced to move over something like that again.

I paid cash for my house. I've never had a mortgage. It saves me a lot of money per month and reduces (but does not eliminate) the possibility that a bank might foreclose on my house.

Most of us are forgotten simple low cost buildings as home/house. Many want their home as showy " Big building" at that place. So huge budget, big loans and main earnings of life time is spent so.

By the way, swagbucks wasn't trying to pry in your personal business (just trying to advertise the "enter to win one month of free rent") and unless you openly comment about how much you pay each month then it's basically anonymous.

I wish I could say I had no mortgage. My husband and I have to pay for a house & 5 acres. Everytime I look @ how much interest we're paying to the bank & how little of the principal is actually being paid I get sick to my stomach. It's ridiculous. My husband bought this home before we were married & I don't like it (doesn't help it's a mile away from the inlaws) so when we are financially able we will be building a home somewhere else which means shelling out more money for many more years. Mortgages are such financial burdens but thank God I have a home & not homeless. Many people aren't that lucky & most people my age are still living with their parents with no place of their own. Also glad we don't have children yet because it would be really financially straining.

I think that is a good thing if you don't have it to pay. Unless you are talking about the people that the government is paying for that could be working. I know there are some that cannot work but here are a whole bundh that can and they need to get up off tehir butts and go to work and quit letting the government take care of them, or the middle class taxxpaxers oay for them is what it boils down to.

I don't know what you mean by "the government taking care of them" Those days are long gone if they ever really existed. The only government assistance available to everybody is SNAP (food stamps) and that has been cut to the bone. Most families on SNAP also have at least 1 working parent (usually a minimum wage job). If a family is receiving any welfare they have to be working, looking for work or job training. Families have 5yrs total that they are allowed help and if the woman has another child during that time she pays the newborn's hospital bills and the families' other benefits stay the same.
As far as unemployment insurance - employees pay for that the entire time they work. That is something paid for and earned. Once it runs out a family may be stuck trying to live on SNAP and maybe one salary or SNAP alone while the job hunt continues. Jobs are hard to find once you've lost one and being poor sucks no matter what the cause.

I don't know where you live, but here in Florida, Publix and Winn Dixie hire a lot of developmentally delayed people. There are also programs through ARC and Goodwill. Ask someone to help you get in contact with a social worker and they should be able to assist you in finding work.

man at the taco bell i worked at we had a slow person working. He was like 30ish and had the mental maturity of a 16 year old but did do the job just fine. But then not only for you but people in general its tough finding a job nowadays. I got a bachelors applied to like 500 jobs i felt i'd be qualified for and didn't land a single freaking job... So don't just think "Its because i'm retarded" its because right now... the government and the job market are moving at a snails pace. Just keep trying you'll eventually get something, i mean for McDonalds you don't need to be a rocket scientist to land a job there, just need to learn how to press the right buttons if you can press the right buttons they'll keep you so long as your fast, I swear thats why places like walmart are slowly switching to automatic checkouts, because those machines are sooo simple even a client with no experience can work'm

Have you considered volunteering? It'd give you something to do. (Working with animals in a shelter may be an option.) Some thrift stores are good about giving people chances, but I've noticed that my local Goodwill CLAIMS that the money it earns goes to job training, but it's just online "courses" that don't really help disabled people find employment.

Or perhaps you could try making crafts and selling them online through etsy? (Just keep track of all your receipts for materials and other things you pay so you can take them to an accountant for tax help.)

Best of luck!

My brother in law works for Goodwill in the offices. He job coaches, and helps people who are disabled find work. I therefore will stand behind Goodwill's claim, and say they are actually helping those that really need help, and want to work.

This is why so many families have moms working outside the home. They need two incomes to support their ridiculous house payments, car payments, uniforms or nice work clothes while they are there, gas to get to and from work, daycare for the kid(s)while at work, meals/drinks at work, etc... Do the math. Figure what it actually COSTS to have mom at work and decide if the net gain is reasonable. Many moms are essentially working for next to nothing, just for the sake of impressing people with "stuff" corporate advertisers tell them they need. Few people really understand the economic impact of this and the effect it has on society and children. Obviously I'm talking about families with two parents working; not single parents or even single people. Just my .02

what ever makes a person happy and free in life is simply priceless... doesn"t matter how much someone pays...but when paying a rent or mortgage its a decision made and the important part of life and the decision made is to get a place that one can really afford to pay or buy. it doesn't matter if its a small or big place... the thing is that later on in life you wont have nothing to regret on your decision made and this is what really matters and this is what will let you and others around you live a happy, enjoyable and free life :)

This question doesn't have a real answer. My SO is the only one on the mortgage, but I write a check each month for between $1000-$2500, but that includes taxes, insurance, escrow, interest, etc. So technically the mortgae is less than $500. Hmmm...can't pick 3 answers, can I?

"Escrow" is the account the lender keeps to pay your taxes and insurance- it's not a separate item to pay, and the interest on your mortgage is an integral part of the mortgage payment-you can't pay just the principal. The intent of the question is how much you pay for the place in which you live, so the taxes and insurance are a necessary part of that. If someone is your SO, I assume you live as a married couple, so household bills are both of your responsibility, at least morally if not legally.
