Expense Summary

How would you like to own a house by the beach? An acre or two of coconut and supari trees with a few Mango & Kokum trees thrown in too? You would like it, won’t you?

And what’s your preference – a sandy beach, or rocks on which waves can crash and foam? Or a mix of both, perhaps?

In any case, for the moment let’s leave such desires aside and try to think rationally – can you actually afford it? How much will such a real estate cost?

Here’s what I think:

  • A few stomach ulcers
  • Loss of patience and an increased bad temper
  • Loss of idyllic evenings spent with family
  • Perpetual stress about the bank account
  • etc.

Not worth it.

    It cost me about $1.5 million cdn dollars many years ago . With a little tweaking and clever money management then , it was affordable .
    However my stomach ulcers grew and bleed when divorce hit ! Don’t stop yourself from dreaming of owning that beautiful beach front property . Continue to dream and include happy memories of you being able to afford it comfortably . Everyone is entitled to dreams regardless of how ulcer driven they may seem 🙂

      To be very honest – in a corner of my mind the hope is still alive 🙂

      It will be nice to fulfill it, but then I will try not to be upset if I cannot..
