Buying condo in SLU vs buying house further away from SLU in seattle
Working in SLU amazon office. Tc - 145k.
Been paying 1300$ as rent sharing a double bedroom apartment in SLU. Thinking to buy my own condo or house since paying rent seems like just throwing away money. Cant share flat after marriage anyways. Rent is pretty high in SLU area or even close areas , 2200$ for 1bhk , 2600$ for 2 bhk. Can pay upto 2200$ as monthly payments. Should i buy condo in slu or move out of city and buy a house instead for the same range ? Plus i am on H1B so a bit scared of denied extension any year. Any ideas\ideas most welcome. SLU is south lake union area where all/most IT companies are. Will be single person earning.
