I don't mean to be a jerk, but I've been waiting seven years for this to happen, so I'm gonna brag. I just bought a $900,000 house on 7 acres 30 minutes from Boston for $196000. It was me, the auctioneer, and the lawyer. I was the first and only bid. The auctioneer was speechless. The lawyer offered me $600000 cash for the house. I looked like an idiot for the past seven years because I refused to buy a house. I rented an apartment for $725/month. My two mentors told me to wait. "Be patient", they said. " This is going to be a disaster." Well, they were right. This is only the beginning.
