If you look at housing prices pre crash and now, it is as if houses appreciated at a normal pace over the last ten years. It just all hit in the last 3 years. Same thing happened to the dow. With the growth projections for DFW and the increasing difficulty and expense of urban and suburban development, prices are likely going to continue to rise. (Unless a major economic event changes the climate drastically) DFW has one the lowest housing cost of any major metropolitan area in the US. It is home to a lot of Major builders and developers which keeps a steady supply of new housing. The problem is that it is moving further and further out, Traffic is becoming a limiting factor thus driving pricing higher closer in. It is your choice but why not buy a used Huracan or Gallardo and a condo or house? I would absolutely buy the house first. It is also the only major tax write off you will have. Enjoy it while you can because as your income goes way up the deduction goes away. Lee
You know, that's what my pops is telling me... to buy a house.

Here's a question for you... say my job was near or around the Dallas downtown area---- is there a place you'd recommend that has good condos to buy? I'm not against buying a house, but it would be cool to do both house and car.

There was even an article in the student paper about her and the speculation of her circumstances. Like she was a Saudi princess. She was kind of famous. My son kept in touch with her up until he got married a few months ago.

I live in a big city (Dallas). There's many people in this city, and I assume some might have bad intentions.

How do you store/protect your car? Especially if you're living in an apartment complex?

I've looked at exotic car storage places that have 24/7 access, where you can safely store your car. But would like to hear if I'm going overboard, or not?

A lot of my friends here in the Philly area utilize third party enclosed garages, storage sites, or many of the 3rd party-owned parking garages will rent you a space monthly or yearly.

Just park it and make an effort to cover it whenever it's in the parking complex with one of those car covers that don't have the "Lamborghini" logo emblazoned all over it.
This makes it a lot less noticeable and no one will bother looking or touching it (trust me).

If worse comes to worst and you can't get the apartment with any parking, get one of these secure, touchless car covers from Vertar
They're resistant to hail, grenades and antifa.





Congratulations on saving up for the Huracan. Go get it.
How does that hold up to wind?

While I hear your thoughts on the housing market being frothy, there is no guarantee it will go down and even if it does overtime housing has always at least kept up with inflation and beat it handsomely over time. A suggestion if I may humbly say so is push yourself to afford the cheapest house in the nicest neighborhood and maybe for now that Huracan can wait. Certainly not trying to throw a wet blanket on your dream but one is a lifelong investment and the other is a depreciating asset. Just sayin’
Nicely put.

You don't have a garage and live in a questionable area? Buy a Buick.

I'd move to a non-questionable area and a home with a garage before buying a six-figure vehicle lol. But hey, priorities.

Exactly. A nice car in a not so nice neighborhood will create more headaches than a Lambo already brings!

I know it’s just life but it is a shame we can’t park and leave our cars and confidently know there won’t be any problems with it when we return.

I was brought up to never touch a car and definitely don’t touch the glass. Others seem to have it in them to break or harm cars.
