OK, right, that makes sense. Given a 30 yr at 4% the 15 would likely be lower and in the comparison it isn't.

That blows my mind Swordguy. Is it nice where you live? Stuff to do, low crime etc? You can't get a parking space in Sydney for 80k!
Come to eastern Germany. Low crime yes, stuff to do... well...

But here you might get a castle for 80K ;)
The maintenance on a castle is not cheap. Come to rural Norway, where you can get a farm for 80k: https://www.finn.no/realestate/homes/ad.html?finnkode=96725057&fks=96725057

It is in the middle of the forest, so zero crime unless you commit it yourself. Plenty of stuff to do: it is not easy to grow anything on these farms, so you'll never run out of work. Plenty of parking space too.

I like this idea!  I can just picture an old farmer talking to his great-grandchildren:
"Back in my day, we walked uphill to school both ways, through driving snow!  And civilization was so far away that if we wanted crime we had to commit it ourselves!  We were told that crime in this area was to be one occurrence per hundred people per year, so every New Year's Eve I would go steal your great-uncle Bob's prize pig, and on New Year's Day he would come take it back.  Times were hard."
Because your toaster got hacked because you tried to watch porn on your blender.

Usually, in those mountains, they stuck to making moonshine. Everybody knew about it, and not even the police cared unless you started peddling bad product to underage kids (younger than 14). I'm certain the buyer of that farm will find some weirdly bent metal pipes in the basement or barn.

That area is gorgeous! I can totally see turning one of those farms into a working farm/retreat centre/bed and breakfast. Unless it's like, an 8-hour drive away from civilization or something...which I can't tell because I don't know Norway's geography at all.

I guess that illustrates my MPP - other people find it annoying when I automatically try to optimize any situation. Live in an out of the way, rural place with gorgeous scenery? Start an AirBnB business! Complaining about low paying job? Get a side hustle tutoring wealthy kids!
