Please tell me again how I am throwing my money away on interest (and appliances and yard maintenance) when I just made $335,000 selling MY starter home? Gee, sure wish I would have rented those last 8 years......NOT! Please do not confuse good luck with skill or a prudent plan.If you just sold your house and owned it for 8 years, that puts your purchase in 2005. The RE market peaked out around 2006 to 2007, depending on your location. So you bought not long before the peak.I suspect you were either very lucky or you have glossed over important information, such as significant improvements made to the house, or a below market purchase. With your handle, it's also possible your property is located in a recently discovered gas field, adding to it's value. I'd toss that in the "luck" pile.--Peter
