The other thread about housing prices and the PoF post about his housing journey made me curious and I checked out zillow for my first home.
I bought it during med school (I know, I know) for 73K in 2009 and sold in 2012 for 100K and the zestimate is now 155K. Who knows if it is accurate.
The house I bought in Residency (I know, I know again) we got in 2012 for 150K and sold in 2015 for 160K and now the Zestimate is 135K yikes!
Any others want to share their housing adventures?

Bought a house in grad school for $282k and held onto it as a rental for the past 10 years. Currently Zillow has at $497k. Rented during residency, but bought our current house in 2015 at $728k and now Zillow says it’s about $945k. We’re happy with how things turned out, but certainly don’t think it was mainly due to my skill. We got lucky and benefitted from these being in a booming ‘it’ city.LithiumParticipantStatus: PhysicianPosts: 1237Joined: 02/15/2016

Just insane. I’m telling myself this is the last home I’ll ever buy.DocNextDoorParticipantStatus: PhysicianPosts: 68Joined: 01/27/2018ddswifeyParticipantStatus: SpousePosts: 74Joined: 04/17/2019
First home bought in 2007 for $250k.
sold 2012 for $222k. (ugh, bought at the high, sell low) zillow says $234k now.
second home built in 2014 for $510k
sold in 2017 for $655k now zillow says 718 which I don’t believe is accurate at all. I know my local real estate pretty well and that just wouldn’t fly.
land bought 2018 for 130k.
Sold 2019 for $168k zillow – same. Just sold it.
current home bought 2017 for $275k. zillow says now $303k.
all properties sold with NO REALTOR, so never pay huge transaction fees.

Rent……JBMEParticipantStatus: SpousePosts: 571Joined: 03/26/2018
didn’t buy in med school
didn’t buy in residency…saw the market was tanking and I thought it would go for a long while
bought the doc house 5 months out of residency. so that was the mistake. BUT we really did buy it at the bottom of the market for our area, when interest rates were their lowest ever and we got a fixed rate
my wife is with the same attending job she got right out of residency and neither of us have no plans to leave. we said back then it was our forever home when the two of us moved into a 3500sqfter. now we’re 5.
bought house for $900k in 2013. zillow says it’s $1,150,000 now. Seems high to me but I’m sure we can get $1mAugust 14, 2019 at 10:24 am MST #238897octopus85ParticipantStatus: ResidentPosts: 245Joined: 08/13/2017
Bought house as an undergrad (haha). Paid $160k, sold 2 years later for $188k.
Bought house for med school. Paid $190k, sold 9 years later (MD/Phd) for $330k.
Bought house for residency. Paid $400k. Now 2 years later, Zillow says $450k.
I may start offering a service where I’ll let you know where I’m moving next so you can buy real estate there 🙂
Aside from a couple years in the dorms as an undergrad, I’ve actually never rented…wideopenspacesParticipantStatus: PhysicianPosts: 1213Joined: 01/12/2016Gainesville, Florida. 1 BR, 1 BA. $120,000Cheboygan, Michigan. 4 BR, 4 BA. $660,000Aberdeen, South Dakota. 5 BR, 4 BA. $325,000Brainerd, Minnesota. 5 BR, 3 BA. $269,000Mullet Lake, Michigan. 2 BR, 1 BA. $15,400Alpena, MI. 3 BR, 1 BA. $90,000Click to expand…
