Sold My Condo,Live In a Camper Van

And couldn't be happier the last year. No more $450 a month strata fees. No more property taxes. No more strata meetings. Not stuck living next to asshole neighbours. I have everything my condo had,it's just smaller- fridge,freezer,hot water,shower,toilet,comfy bed,a dinette, plus a generator,battery pack and lots of solar power. Should mention I made $300k off my condo,and sold at the right time for market reasons,and the building is getting 20 years old. Since I sold,each condo has had to pay over $100k each to: fix the roof,replace windows,reseal the foundation,upgrade water pipes etc. In 2 weeks,I'm taking a leave of absence from my IT career to travel for 5 months. And you all are stuck here <evil laughter>

If every owner paid $100,000 each for a restoration project. Especially for one only 20 years old. Not buying that. I think you’re exaggerating big time. I get what you’re saying about your new lifestyle, but don’t lie just to bolster your case. Btw, I’m in the industry so I’m very familiar with what most projects like that cost and it’s rarely that much. VERY rarely.

You know, I'm always right there with these posts until it reaches the end and they laugh at everyone else and display what selfish people they really are. Dude, Vancouver is happier with gone. We don't need the goodbye letter, we just need you to go.
