    My dad bought a house for $20K in a decent neighborhood.  He was handy and did a lot of work on it.  Raised my sisters in it for 8 years.  He sold it for $150K and had two guys on his lawn almost start a fist fight over who would have the privilege of giving him $150K for it.

    I own a duplex in a bedroom community and it's been okay, mainly because I can rent out one unit and live in the other.  I'm soooo glad I got a duplex instead of a single-family house.  I hope I can break even, but either way I have a roof over my head.
