No, but I use the income I earn to make the house payments.

I'm thinking about bidding on a million-dollar house. I figure I'll bid $900,000, and with smart pricing, I might be able to get it for $100,000 or so.

Yes. I used my Adsense income to pay the mortgage payments on a house, and then, a year or so later, I sold it for enough to pay off all my debts.

That ruled. :-)

Couldn't have done it if I hadn't had my "day job," though. Adsense was "extra" income for me, and the mortgage payments on this house were pretty low.

If my earnings jump to $200 a day - then after about a year I can think of buying a house. But i want to setup an office and develop some software for my website before that - so buying a house will probably be delayed.

I will be debt free at the end of the Year. My mortgage will also be paid off.

One of the UK's great Adsense success stories...house, marriage if I remember correctly, debt free and young!

Me, jealous? You bet:-)

I asked this question because I don't see why I should pay installments on a house when I just buy it outright using adsense

I plan to start with a house next year.

AdSense revenues development is until now on target to make this endeavor possible.

I'm having my 5,000 sq. foot dream house built, half paid up front, thanks to adsense. Lot has been cleared and house will be ready in 4-5 months. After I move, I'll be buying a franchise with adsense money. Dont' believe in putting all my eggs in one basket!

Well you can't buy a house using "AdSense", but if you've got the money then buy the house with the money. I'm not really sure what your point is.

I know somebody who bought their house with AdSense. I think he goes by the name of ozzii (or something like that) here.

I bought my car with AdSense. A Subaru WRX. Not quite at the house level, but maybe someday....

I believe Markus is out buying small islands and beachfront properties with his AdSense earnings. ;)

Haha, take a pinch of determination, a bucket of patience, and a whole boatload of luck, and you end up married... :/

I swear she sings "50 percent, 50 percent, 50 percent and the house!" in her sleep :P

Covers my mortage payments with change left over. Was thinking of naming my house "esnesda" in tribute, or is that just too chav?

One advantage to making payments on a home is to improve your credit rating. Here in the US there can be tax advantages as well.

You could still put down a big down payment and make payments on the remainder.

Who needs a credit rating when they own a house outright? You're obviously not a fan of Dave Ramsey.

Also, tax advantages are only on the interest. If you have no interest you have no tax advantages. Still, paying $20000 in interest will not save you $20000 in taxes. Therefore it is still better to own than to borrow.

Adsense enabled me to make a large down payment on a home in the country...house and four large lots.

Had a few trees chopped down (pines) and waiting to pay cash for other pines downed and a chainlink fence. :)

Ann that's cool! I wouldn't mind buying some massive acreage at the lake with a nice pad and of course some boats to go along with it.

AS pays my rent, my car loan, my debts, my life. I also paid my marriage last august with it. Basically I make more than our prime minister, and I'm loving it(aiming to beat the president lol).

This autumn I'll be debt free finally, then I'll start saving AS cash for a house.

24, married and in good health. :)

AS earnings funded a house and full renovation. (And other goodies...)

I remember someone trying to drill into me at one point that a house wasn't an asset.

It looks good on paper, and at first it felt good not be throwing rent away, but now I'm throwing *more* cash away on higher utilities, upkeep, property tax, etc. And that's if the value holds.

I read a couple of posts where someone bought a car. I did the car thing before the house -- brand new german ride in cash. It felt good. Now, 14 months later, it's worth $15k less and still costs over $500 a month to insure.

If I had it to do again, I would have bought a cheap car, kept renting, and pumped more cash into projects.
