    So what's a reasonable amount to budget

    I think it's a great investment for several reasons 1) US Housing Costs. Not sure if you're aware of the housing market here but it's out of control. Yes, I think we're seeing the end of the bubble but still, 100K in NY won't buy you anything - literally. 300 square foot studios are selling...

    Dating in BA

    Syn - interesting question. I belive in the States where the divorce rate is now 50%, infidelity is still a huge problem. IMO, a lot of cheaters don't necessarily want a divorce & a lot of divorces aren't caused by cheating. Yes, they can be related but it's not a foregone conclusion....

    Mortgage/Buying in BA?

    I'm not looking to get rich on a rental property;) My theory is that it would be for me to live in down the road but in the meantime, I might get some rental income out of it. And yes, I realize the risk of buying but given the real-estate market where I live (NYC), the prices in BA are a steal.

    Mortgage/Buying in BA?

    First off - I should introduce myself. I am a US citizen who recently spent a few few weeks in BA. I absolutely love it & am seriously considering relocating there. However, in the meantime, I have a rather general ? about buying. I'm seriously considering buying an apt in BA to be used as a...
