My house is much more expensive than my car.

For me it's a been there done that situation. I had fancy 2 seater convertibles when I was younger and now I have a cheap compact car that takes me from A to B for very little money. I could not care less if my car is on the low end from the vast masses of cars that are jamming our streets.

I'm looking forward to self driving car subscriptions, like Uber without drivers. Where I "call" a ride from my phone and it's here within 5 minutes. I'm so over owning cars. They take up space, are expensive (maintenance) and annoying to drive. I just want to get to my destination. Can't they invent star-trek like transporters already, please !!!

I looked out of the window and noticed that my car sits on blocks and my house has wheels. I think the house is of greater value since it still has wheels. I also consider it eco-friendly with so many critters finding shelter in the car and under the house.

I am not a home owner yet but, I would be ok with having a home 150-200k in value. The more expensive home most of the time gives you more space. Personally I never want a large house, too much to clean. 400k, 4k square feet home in McKinney with a boring crossover. I would gladly enjoy having a nice car and an home with under 2000 square feet. I like the feel of speed. Just watch the first 2min.43 secs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x3f1SzfteV0

All cars to me are Luxury cars. They are depreciating assets.
But with that said, I buy new and keep cars a very long time.
I pay cash as well. I don't like owing anything except my property.
How people spend their money is their business.
