Can You Afford to Buy a House? | 你買得起房子嗎?

Roller Coaster

Your landlord keeps hiking up your rent, and you’re tired of reworking your budget to accommodate the other areas of your life — or worse, searching for a new rental. You want to invest in a home for sale, but you’re not sure if now is the right time.

你的房東不停的漲房租,你不想再從生活中一省再省只為了支付增加的房租,更不想再多花時間去找下一棟租屋。你終於想要投資為自己和家人買房子,但是不知道現在是不是買房子的好時機。

There are two likely reasons for your hesitation: time and money. Deciding if you should rent or buy can be determined in part by your commitment to an area — you could have legitimate concerns about job relocation or you may wonder if the space you can afford now will be flexible enough that you won’t grow out of it just a few years down the road. And on an economic level, perhaps you’re not sure you can afford all the costs that a down payment, mortgage, and home maintenance entail.

對買房子感到猶豫通常有兩個原因:時間和金錢。你也許不知道會不會因為換工作而需要搬到別的地區,或是現在買的房子會不會過幾年因為家裡人口增加,而變得不夠大了。也許你不知道是不是負擔得起所有買房子的開銷-頭期款,房屋貸款,每月水電費等等費用。

The first step? Do some homework. Consider these questions to help you decide if the answer to “Can I afford a house?” is yes.

第一步?先做好功課,我們來看看以下幾個問題,幫助你決定”我是不是買得起房子?”的答案是否為Yes。 (more…)

在接觸韓國保養品之前,我的步驟只有兩個 – 洗臉和擦面霜,

Five Things Friday – 5.6.2016

Five things I am digging this week –
本週我想跟大家分享的五件事物 –

1. Baauer – Temple ft M.I.A. & G-Dragon

I heard this song on Spotify while driving, and love the song.
Had no idea who sings the song.
Later when I look up the song, I realized G-Dragon was the male rapper in the song!
The song is produced by Baauer, who is famous for Harlem Shake 3 years ago.
I read an article that Alexander Wang used the song for his runway show during Fashion Week.

有一天在開車的時候聽到這首歌,哇怎麼這麼好聽,
只是當時完全不知道這是誰的歌,
後來想起來有特地找了一下,
發現歌裡的男生饒舌歌手居然是Bigbang的G-Dragon,
這首歌是音樂製作人Baauer做的,
他最有名的歌應該就是三年前的Harlem Shake (不知道的朋友可以上YouTube找一下),
今年初紐約時尚週的時候Alexander Wang就是用這首歌來給模特兒走秀的。 (more…)
