Default Finding another place to live

This is a serious question. If you had $25,000 and the goal was to find a place to live without a mortgage what would you do and where would you go? Keep in mind I also have a wife a 6 year old daughter that will be coming with me.

I'm not sure that is possible.......remember if you pick a cheap state to live in your kid will be going to some very poor schools.

Youre gonna have to GTFO of FL first of all. I like Gators plan. You may not want a mortgage but rent is pretty cheap up here. The thing is, with that 25 grand as a down payment, you could find something decent and have a smaller mortgage payment than what rent would be. I paid $64,000 for a brand new 1300 sq ft house 5 years ago. Payment around 450 a month and that includes taxes and insurance. It has doubled in value since then. Those days are gone now but 25 grand would go a long way up here. Have tanner boyzzzz hire you on as asst manager at Ingles

Good luck with whatever you decide Scott. I know how trying of a time it can be.

I like Ryan's idea of moving up here and working for Tanner at Ingles. You could eventually move into management there. I have two cousins who are also managers at Ingles.

Publix would also be a solid option. My brother dropped out of college, took a job as a meat market associate, and is now about to be promoted to meat market manager after 5 years with the company. He has been GIVEN nearly $50k in Publix stock and is making close to $60k/year as an assistant manager.

The problem with moving and renting is going to be proof of income.. Get that job with Tanner and get set up in a rental.. keeping in mind it's only short term.. then work your way up to bigger and better.

Publix is an outstanding company to work for. I have friends from high school and we were all bagboys for Publix back around 1985. Some of them stayed on and are now district managers or even higher pulling 6 figures without a college degree. I only mentioned Ingles because he has an "in" there with Keith.

Growing up in South Florida I thought that was the only grocery store in America........we did have one Winn Dixie around the corner.......but every grocery around West Palm was a Publix.

I've heard good things about people working with Publix.......

Find a small home or appt in N Ga and get Tanner to get you started sounds like a plan. Or if you have been in print maybe Randy N Gabowhunter could get you a job with the printing company he works for

There are places out there for under $25000. Most need some work but I'm looking to start over and don't want a rent or mortgage payment. Where that will be is still to be determined. My goal is to have as little bills as possible. I don't care what I end up doing for work as long as I can pay my bills and save more money than I do now. Here's to a interesting 2018.

The only thing I can come up with off the top of my head is..

Buy an acre of land, buy a lightly used 30 odd foot 5th wheel camper, have power run out to your acre lot. I can see that happening with 25K
