    I was very lucky as 6 months later the same houses in the same street where selling for $50k more. I paid $98k and sold for $300k and was mortgage free so I have the big house now with a teeny mortgage and it's all renovated so worth more again. Don't think I'll stay here forever though. The block is on a slope I'm sick of the pool and the gardening is to much now on my arthritis

    Wow that's amazing! Good on you. Our first home was five times that 😞 but I didn't start working until 2006 after things got expensive. Just unfortunate timing. My
    Mum paid $29k For our family house in the 80's. Imagine!
