I like to risk it. More different they are than me more I get to learn from them. Iv lived with some absolutely wild people over the past few years and picked up little parts of their habits / personalities along the way
More than 4 but 4 running ones. 80s Pontiac I'm working on restoring + 1 spare parts car, old jeep for offroading, commuter diesel golf, Miata build for autocross and a motorcycle. Like I said, nothing "nice"
It just feels so good to have everything in my house in the same place where I left and to have all the quietness. I would prefer someone who I know personally to be my roommate but I don't know anyone and I like my situation enough to not try and fine one.
The amount of fiscal shaming on folks who live alone is pretty astounding. OP didn’t even mention age. Maybe 30 years old and time to be a grown ass adult? Living with roommates is fun and all but there’s also value in having a place to call your own.
👍🏽 Renting vs owning is a math problem and there are no absolutes ever. In bay area if you arent going to be in the same spot for 15 years then renting 1 or 2 is more economical. Even if you like being leveraged up on a mortgage hoping the home value increases, 30-50k per year wouldn’t make any meaningful difference towards a down payment of 450k anyway.
