Anyone that has been in Cool Springs TN lately, has most likely seen Dave Ramsey’s new house.

I don't know how to post the pics, but if you go to the link then you can see some views of the house.

Yes, I know the article is old, but I just stumbled across it and thought my fellow FPU fans would find it interesting....

I thought you would like this one. I celebrate his success and am most pleased with the description of his basement! I’m betting that his house to net worth ratio is similar to my buing a $100K home!

;-)

Remember, if you live like no one else then someday you too can LIVE like no one else!

Good for him!

This is what’s possible when you’re free from the yoke of debt. I’ve been debt-free aside from my home for over 5 years, and it’s invigorating to say the least. To be able to walk into any store and know that I can buy something nice without fear of overdrafting or going over a limit is empowering.

Telling contractors and builders that I intend to pay in cash is almost always met with a smile and an offer to “knock $XX off the price.” Cash is still king.

I would not have posted his address. You never know what sort of Occupy loons might show up to harass him and his family.

"He Didn't Build That!"~ B.O.

A friend of mine installed the network in this house. Dave Ramsey is a hell of a guy. Great story of someone who made bad decisions, paid for it, dug himself out of the hole he created and now teaches others how to do the same.

I agree and am almost there myself. At my current pace, I should be mortgage free before we hit our next summer!

All,

I have no idea why my pings are always double pinging you....I’ll ask a mod what I am doing wrong...

Hmm, good call. The article included it, but that was from 2010 and things are getting dicier.

the average monthly electric bill at Dave Ramsey’s house was $1,285 per month.

==========

That's extremely reasonable for a house of that size. On a regular basic, I don't listen to his show. What's his view on solar heating?

Dave is a firm believer in the second amendment. He will be ok ;-).

I do everything that Dave suggests (with the exception of the use of a credit card that is autopaid each month), and things have worked out pretty well.

“Redrum. Redrum.”

Bwaahahaha. I was thinking the same thing! Good for Dave but the house isn’t “my cup o’ tea”.

Why would you say that? It appears he paid cash for his house. He earned the money, he's got a right to do as he pleases with it.

From the article: "A mortgage does not appear to have been recorded for the property. That’s our Dave! "

Yes, but can he (or his heirs) sell it and get their money out?

I agree with all he says about how to live (debt free) even though I have not been able to accomplish that goal myself. But, methinks he’s a little aggressive in his investment of nearly $5 million in a house. That makes his resale market very limited and his taxes and upkeep very expensive.

Note how long his neighbor’s never occupied house has been for sale.
