Another drawback that you need to consider is the temperature and humidity requirements. I know that a few people have their GTP in their bedroom. When you live in a cold and dry climate, you have to go extra length to be able to provide proper temperature and humidity. The room where I keep my snake very quickly turned into a dedicated snake room.The temperature is always 25 Centigrade and the humidity is always >50% in the room itself...I know that the people in Florida will laugh at me for saying this but this is well beyond my own comfort zone. I don't know where you live but consider this before changing the only room you live in into a tropical zone.
Beside that, I agree with the previous post, GTP should be a serious investment, 500$ is just for the snake (a green one)...by the time you get a decent enclosure, heating system, thermostat, thermometer, humidity gauges, substrate, cage furniture, disinfectant... you will have spent an additional 1000$.
If that does not scare you, check out some of the web pages on GTP, you'll find awesome information on their care and how awesome GTP can be...Some of those pages can be found at www.chondroweb.com but there are others as well.
