Shane, $1.6M for the house on the lake, you need to spend at least $3.2M on a boat! If you want help shopping, I'll be happy to help!!!!
Most of the lake house's value is from EXTREME APPRECIATION! Total investment in the house is about $400,000 to $500,000 or so. The remainder has been all through appreciation. The rate that homes on Lake George have climbed and are still climbing is absolutely MIND NUMBING! I am fortunate enough to have been the recipient of the house as it was built for me by my parents.

Default House??

No house here..
I rent the apartment/condo.
I have the boat, but the bank owns more of it than I do...
Got the nice crew dually.
Have a bunch of tools, etc. in the garage..

You think you own your house??? You pay more in taxes than I pay in rent! Shane does for sure. How much tax on a 1.6M house??? Damn.

ChrisK,

A little off the subject, (sorry) but you used to live in NY and were part of the Bud light Ski team at Jumpin Jacks right? I see you still have a ski boat. Do you still do alot of skiing and are you with any teams down there. I must have met you with the Bud light team here in NY. I was friends with the Hennels and Gene and his son.

The hennels where my next door neighbors... If you have EVER been to their house then you know where I lived. On mary lane in rotterdam. As for the skiing down here... We thought the same thing.. well it is not the case... There is only like 2 teams that we have found. One in Tampa, one in Orlando... and the orlando team sucks compared to my old one. We have not skiied in a few years, that is why I am selling the mastercraft. I also know Gene, and gino... My borother works for gene down here. My mother and brother live over on the west coast right near gene.
