Yeah. I’m Houston based and live in the Spring area. Where are you looking to buy?

I’d consider looking elsewhere. You might be able to find something in the suburbs for that price or in places that are up and coming. But your rents won’t typically meet the 1% rule so likely hard to get a cash flowing property. Source: am in Houston. With that said, if you find something, let me know! I’d love to be proven wrong and find some income producing property that’s local.

also, my mother lives in cypress and I don’t find it’s the best neighborhood and it’s also hard to find renters.

Your yearly reminder that if you’d bought the DJIA in 1929 you didn’t become profitable in real terms until 1955. It wasn’t just WW2. If you’d bought the DJIA at the beginning of 1966 you lost almost 75% to inflation over two decades and didn’t recover in real terms until 1995. You’d have made nothing between JFK’s death and Clinton’s second term. We are in a particularly weird period of “stonks only go up” but remember those 8% returns over the long run mask generation-defining risks.

I am finishing my contract and my boss offered me a permanent position, but wants me on as an AE. I am open to the AE position, but they are unwilling to compromise on the AE salary which is a substantial cut from my salary at my former agency and 45% of my contract pay. What do I do? Do I leave if I feel I deserve more?
