According to my research (online), Chicago Illonois has the cheapest
condo prices for any major city? Is this because the weather is so bad?
If there is any major city that matches Chicago in cheapness, I haven't
found it. We're talking the "heart of Chicago" here, and not on some
I have a wall unit that I stained the side of with fishtank water, so I
am thinking of hiering (sp.) a cabinetmaker to take the side of it off
and put a new one on, so can you please tell me if he'd be able to do
this without denting or scratching it and if he and the front part is
rounded, so would he be able to make it round to match the other ones.
He'd have to come to my house to look at at, but if I stare (sp.?) at
it hard, would I be able to tell that it's not the original. To get the
side off, I figure he'd have to bang it with a rubber hammer because
they must be stuck on with mollies.
What is also distressing is that in Cancun Mexico and other parts of
Mexico, the condos seem to be about a $190 to $500-somthing grand for
one-bedrooms. I can afford up to $200ish grand now, but I don't want to
move there now. I figure that if they cost so much to buy that the
maintenaince or taxes would ALSO be more than I am counting on. WHen my
aunt dies and therefore cannot continue to finance my retirement, I
figured that I could move to Mexico with the money I inherit from her,
but the condos seem to be about as costly as the condos in Florida. How
much would the maintainance (sp.?) or yearly taxes cost on a nice one-
or tw0-bedroom condo in a nice area in Mexico. My idea is to move to
Mexico so I don't have to work. This is my only out for the workforce.
I hate Mexico, but not nearly as bad as I hate jobs and commuting and
going to sleep early and waking up early. My aunt just turned 77, so I
talkiing somewhere down the road.
Is it possible to retire in Mexico if your networth is about $700
grand. If the terror attacks never happened and thus the stockmarket
didn't crash, I'd inherit enough to retire in Mexico.
Correction!!!!!!!! I've checked more real estate agents' site and are
seeing your average price for a condo at $300-something thousand to the
millions!!!! One knows life sucks bowling balls through a bendy straw
when a person cannot live well in some fourthworld country for people
I found one condo which is not a highrise like I covet, but I cannot
make heads or tales of this sentence below:
Monthly condo maintenance fees are about $7000. Pesos.
Actually it is a highrise. I am in a few sites at the same time because
I have discovered that I can sign online a bunch of times with DSL.
Check this out the apartment is 300something thousand dollars. How in
the world can Mexico be as expensive as the United States??????? This
is very perplexing.
Okay okay I know, it's four bedrooms. I just came accross it again.
This therefore is a bad example. This is increadibly cheap even for
Mexico. This is a price that will get you ONLY one or two bedrooms for
a comparable building. What I want to know is WHY THE F*CK are Freaking
Mexico real estate prices on par with Florida and practically every
other area in America???? Mexico is supposed to be a poor country. I
thought that's why they're all sneaking into America.
I am in Panama now and check this shite out!!!! I want to know why
these two-bit countries cost so much to live in.
My apartment is worth $200something grand and yet I cannot get
something better for this money in some picolo (sp.?) country. This
pisses me off.
Maybe I'll post back after investing a ... say .... Guatimalla (sp.)
realator's web site in a few minutes. If so, I will be raging (I'm
This 4 bedroom high rise condo in Ecuador would be depressing to live
in, even though it's plush. It's like all alone at the end of the
island and if you live alone, it would make you feel even lonelier (sp)
with all the space.
I'll post it tomorrow. I can get the super of the building I live in
fix my ceiling fan, but if it makes you happy, I'll try to fix it with
help from alt.home.repair. I have been coming in alt.home.repair for
help with real estate since April 28, 2003. I get answers to all my
questions. I asked a question about the above0mentioned wall unit's
water damage in here back in 1999 and was told the stains are
permanent, so about two hours ago, I posted a new question about it in
this thread, so now I should not be accused of posting off-toppic
I think I shall keep on asking my question about Chicago's real estate
prices? I asked about real estate prices on multi-family houses on
Aprill 11, 20004, got no answer, so I tried again on Sept. 5 of this
year and found out what I need to know (proof below), and it's always
been my experience that persistence pays off.

I took one pill about an hour ago. I'm supposed to take two, but I
forgot yesterday and I don't want to detox. I was prescribed zoloft for
O.C.D., but it doesn't work for that, but it melows me out, so I never
stopped taking it. I have been diagnosed for O/C.D. by three
pyschopharmacologists, but none have been able to find the right meds
because I have to strong a case.
So now you'll never possess the knowledge that you can retire if you
move to the Phillipines (sp.). This is the cheapest country one can
live in that will suffice. We can get a super luxury high rise for the
price of a car or two.
For some strange reason, Venezuala (sp.??) apartments cost and an arm
and a leg.
French Guyanna (sp) is one of the most depressing places to live in,
but probably one of the cheapest. About a day or two after I posted the
original post in this thread a woman of East Indian decent who lives in
French Guyanna told me that one U.S. dollar equals 200 French Guyanna
dollars. She told me she'd take me there, so I checked it out in Google
Images and it looked run down. That's where Devil's Island is. Maybe
there's some other South American, or African country that's not a
dictatorship that's cheaper, but so what.
She told me that the reason why apartments in India are so expensive is
because the dollar doesn't go far there. She said that I have to move
to a country where the dollar goes far.
It's only 50% cheaper to live in Mexico and 80% cheaper to live in
Ecuador (sp). Is there any chance that there will be a coup in Ecaudor.
Beunos (sp) Aries (sp) seems to be the prettiest city in South America.
It reminds me of Europe. I wonder how much cheaper it is to live there.
Also, Lima Peru is nice.
