Would you move your family into an extended stay hotel IF..


it meant in two years you could pay cash for a house? We were recently offered a unique opportunity to have 3 connecting rooms in an extended stay hotel with all utilities and room paid PLUS two salaries a week. I have done the math and this would mean we could put enough money aside to pay cash for a house in 2 years. They have given us two weeks to decide. Would you do it?

    I guess we would still have 60,000 in savings. However if we had no savings at the end then the whole point of it would be lost. I just don't know, guess that's why I asked here. Thanks!

    Christin, Peeples, I woke up at 3 am this morning worrying about my comment. (I hadn't realized Peeps, that you had children). We were transient those years, and so are the other people in the hotel. That becomes a consideration for children.

    It certainly sounds like fun, my children are not home schooled so the moving constantly isn't possible. There are many ups and downs to this which is why I asked for opinions. Thank you for your input! No worries!

    It is in an awesome area and they wouldn't even have to change schools. We're just trying to figure out if moving them in a hotel is "healthy". Owning a home outright does sound wonderful! Thanks

    So far there is only one real downside we see and that is getting rid of our 6 year old dog. Just seems kind of abnormal to move the kids into a hotel. Thanks for the answer!
