Question
i am expecting my first child with my boyfriend and my boyfriend really wants to buy a house but i dont think him and i can afford it,he makes about 1,200 a month and my income var. how much and what are the average bills for owning the house in Wisconsin ?

Answer
well in minn with propane. you figure 300 a month for gas electric and water if you dont have a well..thats my utility nut..groceries are 500 and gas 200. so unless you get something under 100k with a payment of 300 -400 a month you have real issues....my propane cost me 1250 this year and thats cause i own my tanks and get a better price. most people lease tanks or your in the city and you pay period.

good luck..maybe look at a duplex and rent half of it out..or a house that has an ability to have a private room made by putting up a false wall..and reant that.

good luck

Experience

i own over 10 credit cards

8 of these have credit limits over 10k and i use 2 of them to invest with

i have the balance as a fixed life of the loan balance transfer

and make 10 points profit on the money

Organizations
none

I retired doing this in 1996

and wish to pass on my experience. BE aware I got married in 1998 and started Driving Rig in 2004 so that I could get affordable quality Heath insurance for my family as I now have 2 beautiful daughters 4 and 8 as of aug 2007, so I may take longer to answer som questions. i cover such subjects as, my approach to credit, how to establish and maintain multiple accounts, how i get single digit life of the loan balance transfers, how i use their money for 45 days interest free, how i use credit cards to invest for 30% a year profit, and how i maintain a 650+ credit rating while holding 5 or more accounts. I challege anyone have me compare any answer, that suze orman gives on her tv show, to what i would suggest as i find her answers just plain incompetant, especially when she states that borrowing money from an ira causes you to pay double taxation. Thats just plain wrong
