"why Should I Go Out With A Renter?"

Recommended Posts

This was just posted to Facebook by a friend of mine:

Just overheard a phonecall on the Park and Ride:

"This guy, he hasn't got enough money for me ... Why should I go out with a renter? ... I'm lowering my standards mum"

When i was younger girls liked guys with cars, sadly i came across lots of anecdotal evidence over the years to find this to be true.

I recall that one of the nicknames for such car loving girls among my car owning aquantainces was 'seat covers'. I guess they deserved each other.

"Not enough money?" Perhaps 'Renter Guy' has a high net worth invested in other areas, just not in property? :rolleyes:

Perhaps any man who's bought a property has bet everything on a single asset class / throw of the dice.

"Why should I go out with a renter?"

Because dating OAPs is inappropriate for someone in their 20s?

:lol: Very good.

I love the Anecdotal sub-forum, and when my nephew is old enough to be thinking about leaving home, I'm definitely going to use the line:

"Well, I once read on the Internet about this bloke who read on Facebook about a friend who overheard some girl talking to her mum on the phone.."

Indeed, I understand in Ireland it's the other way round as owners tend to be in massive negative equity.

Thing is, all those amazing homeowner woman magnets will undoubtedly have their Audi A3 on HP... What's the difference?

Rent a depreciating asset, own an appreciating one.

Though most on here would put both houses and cars in the first category.

You still essentially pay the depreciation on a car if you have it on HP - in fact that's most of what you are paying for. And it'll be more than the 3-4% p.a. you might hope to get from property.
