A boyfriend’s ballsy ask isn’t turning out too well for him.
Erika Strong Rodri, a TikTok realtor, regularly shares questions about home buying that are either hypothetical or are asked of her by others.
Recently, she shared this unfortunate story: “My boyfriend just moved in with me, I bought this home a year ago by myself. He wants me to add him to the title since he will be paying for stuff around the house.”
Rodri answered with a resounding “f—k no” courtesy of the music she chose for the video, but viewers were eager to dig in even deeper.
“Ask him to refinance half the current market value in his name and that cash come to you,” @anisesal suggested.
“Tell him he’s making husband requests on a boyfriend’s salary,” @tiredmomlife49 snarked.
Another viewer said that “just the fact that he asked that is reason to move on from him,” while @itsaliceandco warned the asker to be careful: “He pays for a couple of things and thinks he’s entitled to be on the deed. That’s insane.”
Buying a house — especially in today’s insanely inflated market — is a big deal. And an even bigger price ticket. Putting someone on the deed and giving them the right to half the property is almost definitely not worth it unless they’ve put in half the money or have been contributing something else of value for a long, long time. Shacking up for a couple of months certainly doesn’t give anyone the right to half a house, and asking is seriously bold.
And in this case, especially based on the reactions from TikTok viewers, bold isn’t a compliment.
Or as @sjorriegg put it: “No no no. A new boyfriend is cheaper.”
