Dang, good catch. I forgot to add in the rental property's taxes. That $2448 should be $4551, bringing the total to $69,600.

Oahu property sales have been slowly declining in value so the city council has been muttering about raising the rate, but in an election year they're having trouble finding political support for higher property taxes. At least for the incumbents who are up for re-election.

I corrected my spreadsheet but I'm past my editing window, so I guess I'll fix the table on next year's thread...

The table is now changed (hopefully correctly).

Divorced, one child in Ohio.

2006 - $48,859
2007 - $48,414
2008 - $67,136 (bought a condo but didn't include downpayment in this figure)
2009 - $68,098.

This shows that owning and living in my condo is costing my $19K more per year than when I was renting. Definately a decision I deeply regret. I knew my mortgage payment was going to be $4K more than my rent, but was very naive about the other hidden cost of owning such as much higher utilities, maint fees, property taxes, repairs, etc...

That Is Beautiful!

I always wondered how to make the tables work. All I needed was an example. Sweet.

A little late in joining, but for me (single, SoCal) $52K last year, including mortgage, prop taxes, but not income taxes. Includes about $9K in travel for last year as the main big ticket item.
