7oh4 - can you get anything for $300,000? Cause $200,000 down and a loan of $100,000 would be very manageable. Of course, still have HOA dues . . .

If I had an extra $200,000, as in I don't need it to live off of at all and won't need it for a while, I would buy land right on the outskirts of all the development and just sit on it for 10-20 years. Since I am in SC I would pick this area either off of 521 or within 5 minutes of 77 in Rock Hill or a little bit further. That might be more long term than what anyone is thinking about though. $200K could make you a whole lot of money in 10-20 years. Certainly wouldn't lose money if you didn't need a mortgage.
