- Come in Houston, er, Dallas: Buying a House and a Move Toward FIRE
- In Closing: My Experience Buying a House
I’m targeting late April/early May to be out of NYC and in Dallas full-time.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted a silver Subaru Forester. Buying a house and moving to Dallas meant I’d need to buy a car sooner or later.
The budget I had in mind was $6,000 for everything. Tax, title, registration, base price of the vehicle, everything.
I knew car prices tend to rise as it gets warmer, so when I found a great deal on the car I wanted in late February, I went ahead and snagged it.
Oh! And I wanted to pay for it in full. No financing.
Just an in-shape, reliable used car whose only expenses were maintenance, insurance, and gas. Boom.
