Don’t let the naysayers get you down! A year and a bit ago, I was told by several mortgage brokers/realtors/ etc. that there was no way in G-d’s green earth that I would be able to purchase the brand-new $135K home I wanted. Guess what - I refused to listen and kept trying, and I’ve been living in it since Dec. 97. Ever since then, I’ve learned to stop listening to the negatives - unless they come with instructions (such as the advice others post on this board). True, it is much more difficult to get some things done without cash - but you’ll have to be that much more creative, and when you DO have the cash, you won’t NEED to spend it, unlike those who are never forced by necessity to learn the alternatives. Cheers to you, and good choice on “investing” your cash on knowledge.
