Would you buy an apartment in an old high-rise building with lots of issues (needing repairs) if that’s all you can afford? Or would you rather pay overpriced rent instead?
I wouldn't buy anything with lots of issues unless I had the money to fix the issues.
which i doubt you have
If I could afford to pay for the necessary repairs, sure. Otherwise I’d keep renting.
Well, if you can't afford anything more... that sort of answers the question right there, doesn't it? If you can't afford it, you wouldn't buy it...?
