5/5 vs 15/15 vs 30
Added on : Friday July 25th 2014 10:00:12 AM

Views: 258 Replies: 4 So I'm a first time home buyer and decided to buy new construction townhouse in a planned new planned community where I had been looking at apartments. As such, I got a pre-approval from a broker I had met and was waiting until I got a closing date/finishing date from the builder before I went any further. I'm currently going through underwriting with said broker (which I found out is a Wells Fargo affiliate) and just got word the townhouse will be completed next month with a close date of the beginning of September. So I figure now is the time to start looking around at rates and I was originally looking at the 30 year fixed even though I know that I hope to be the house for 3 years and ideally 5-7 before moving to a different state or out of the country. Given that, it doesn't really make sense to me to get a 30 year fixed and when I was looking around I saw the 15/15 from PenFed and the discussion on this site regarding it. 5/5 ARMs seem to also be popular with the increase caps at 2%.

Since for me this is totally not a planned thing and more of a impulse due to timing (last group of townhomes in developement, end unit in the perfect location for me) I haven't been able to do the usual research I normally do for financial things and have decided to outsource some of the legwork. When I looked at the ARMs before, I had only known about the 3/5/7& 1 arms which never really appealed to me but the 5/5 seem like a better deal. The new 15/15 from PenFed also looks interesting but I'm guessing I will need to run numbers to see what makes sense. Which brings me to the next question; Obviously, when comparing mortgages and rates you need to plug in the numbers and look the whole picture but I'm a little confused at what whole picture I should be looking at. What's the breakeven point that people keep talking about? The only definition I am aware of for the breakeven point comes from the investment world and I wouldn't think it would make sense here; or does that only apply to refinancing? What type of things should I be considering when looking at the numbers?

Purchase Price: $282k
Down Payment: 10%
Monthly After Tax Income: $6k
Time in home: 3-7 years
Monthly Expenses: $2,065 (non-discretionary;e.g. car, utilities, student loans, etc)

I know that I could have gotten an existing townhouse in the neighborhood cheaper for the most part but the market is tight where I am so most people are paying above listing price and none of the places I looked at were worth the listing price. My credit is only average so I know that I don't qualify for the best rates. Chase quoted me 4.75% on a 30 year fixed with a mean CS of 670.

Dashboard Windshield Mount Car Holder for iPhone 75% Off at Amazon
Added on : Thursday July 24th 2014 07:00:07 AM
g: -1 Posted By: megatimr
Views: 240 Replies: 0 http://www.amazon.com/Nanotechnology-Landscape-Windshield-Dashboard-Sunshine/dp/B00JXM3LMK

Coupon Code:75MICROS

I had found a 40% off coupon the other day on another board, but this larger discount was shown on FB this morning so I thought I'd pass it along.

This rotatable car holder can mount to the dash or windshield, for the dash it uses a metal ring with a 3M adhesive to overcome issues with textured surfaces. It works best with devices with a smooth mirrored finish, like the back of an iPhone or a hard case. Simple one touch nanotechnology makes mounting and removal easy. Can be used in the car or at the office, with the metal ring left on the dashboard in the car.

Money back guarantee.
Micro Suction surface applies to any hard mirrored surface.
360 degree rotation for portrait or landscape viewing.
Easy removal.

Sold by Sunshine M&B and Fulfilled by Amazon.

Looking for an apartment/condo rental in the same elementary school while we look/build. Wife wants master planned community and I need public transportation access to the triangle area (hate ATX traffic!!)

Also looking for a new build rebate realtor and/or someone who "specializes" in REO/Foreclosures?

$399.99 - $20.00(Pharmacy Rewards 5% off) - $57 (Cartwheel 15% off) - $16.15(Redcard 5% off) = $306.85+tax (best value!)

Cartwheel coupon is also good for other electronics and entertainment, including TVs and video games, but only for the next two days.

Bonus not paid as in contract over last two years - what to do?
Added on : Tuesday July 08th 2014 12:00:06 PM
g: 0 Posted By: pillsdoughboy1
Views: 87 Replies: 1 Hello,

I recently looked over my employment contract and noticed some not so great discrepancies related to bonus payments. My bonus income over all bonus pay periods has not been paid as contracted. I am in a bind because I really like my job, and the immense flexibility it provides me, so do not want to create friction. Additionally, I work in the North American office with 3 other people so management/hr that I deal with are my coworkers and direct managers.
contract said: In addition to your base salary, you will participate in an incentive plan comprised of the following:
1) The incentive (variable income) will be determined by the fulfillment of company wide as well as personal Target achievements, which will be annually redefined.
2) The variable income may range from 0% to 200%. 200% is equal to the maximum annual incentive of $ xx,xxx.
3) For the current fiscal year 2011/2012, which will end on September 31, 2012, the variable income is defined to be 100%

1. Only issue here is that the goals get defined 3 months before the end of our fiscal year and end up being "garbage" goals.
2. Turns out the BoD has the option to limit everyone's maximum annual incentive to some % lower than 200%. The past two years it has been 125%. The contract implies that you have the ability to reach 200%, but you do not. In this case why not right the contract as, "0% to infinity % where infinity % is $infinity". To me this is misleading. Nothing about limitations or reductions mentioned anywhere in my contract.
3. Reading this lines suggests that I would receive 100% of the variable annual incentive. Of course when it came time to pay I got the pro-rated annual variable income for time worked in that fiscal year. Since this was way back do I have any recourse?

To clarify, the annual compensation is broken into some more specific categories (also previously unknown to me), only 30% of last year and 40% this years annual variable comp are limited to the 125%. In total my potential lost wages is roughly $5500 over two years.

My thoughts on courses of action:
1. sue now (prefer to not go this route to keep the peace per say plus the lost $ is not worth it to me)
2. sue if/when I move jobs (what are my statue of limitations here)
3. Ask for mangers/hr for compensation based on contract
4. Other?

What would you do in this situation? What other remedies would you seek?


TIA

Bought second house, previous owner wants it back.
Added on : Tuesday July 08th 2014 02:00:20 AM
g: 0 Posted By: CptSavAHo
Views: 31 Replies: 1 We bought a second house as an investment rental. It's in a mediocre neighborhood and modest size. It needs a lot of updating, was an old man who died and didn't do much but hoard for the last 20 or so years. The garage is full of stuff some of it looks potentially valuable like these bikes from 1930s or so all in decent shape. When we closed we offered the son of the owner 48 hours to take whatever he wanted off the property. He didn't take anything as far as we know. Now some letter has surfaced in the family talking about how much some of what his dad collected is worth and his son is offering, almost demanding, to buy the house back. There are 3 rooms packed with stuff mostly in boxes and a garage crowded with stuff a lot under tarps. The funny thing is the son gave us a concession at sale because of the estimated cost of removing all the junk. So...

What's my best option to have someone estimate the value of all this? There seems to be a big variety of items some paintings some jewelry a lot of clothes records some books tons of magazines bicycles rugs and some furniture. What's my tax liability if it ends up with some kind of value?

What's the risk from the son? I offered to turn over any personal effects like photos but maybe thats a bad idea? I could see him saying we promised to give him whatever he wanted etc etc.

Tips and Tricks for Insurance - Inventory Of Assets?
Added on : Sunday July 06th 2014 01:00:06 PM
g: 0 Posted By: robronson
Views: 85 Replies: 1 My neighbor in the apartment across from mine got robbed recently and it made me think about my renter's insurance. I barely have much in the realm of receipts and documentation on my things. If it was me that robbed, I'd be pretty screwed.

I think being robbed is pretty traumatic, and trying to remember everything you had and finding receipts after the fact would only make things worse. What I'd like to do is put together a rock solid inventory with pictures, receipts, etc, store it up on my dropbox, and if I ever get robbed, I go up in the cloud, even off my cell phone, email the PDF of my inventory to the insurance man, and move on with my life.

Maybe, I might even wind up a little better off than before because if I could have back what I paid for all my stuff, I'd probably only re-buy half of it since I buy a lot of clothes and things I don't really use.

Anyone have experience on how insurance claims work for personal possessions? There's a lot of threads on car insurance and home owner insurance with respect to tree branches, but I rarely hear anyone discussing submitting claims for personal possession against homeowner or renter's insurance. I'm under the impression that I'll get either the replacement cost or whatever I paid, whichever is less, which leads me to believe I'll get screwed since, like most FWF I go out of my way to shop for sales and deals. So if I only get back what I paid, it's far below market value for many of my things.

Am I under an obligation to hand over receipts for everything? Maybe if I got something well below market value, and I misplace the receipt, or intentionally don't store it, then I'll get replacement value which is higher?

Does anyone else inventory things like papertowels and toiletpaper and shampoo? On the surface it seems silly, but I ran some quick math in my head and I easily have a few hundred dollars worth of cologne, deodorant, TP, papertowels, toothpaste, toothbrushes, facial cleanser, moisturizer, etc. Also, if I have the inventory up in dropbox, I can refer to it when I'm shopping so if I see a good deal on something like bulk papertowels, I can see how many rolls I'm down to, assuming I keep the inventory up to date every month or so.

I've heard people just videotaping everything in their home but that doesn't quite seem granular enough for me. I've already started a rough inventory and realized I actually have around $12k worth of things in my apartment, so my $10k policy won't cover it and I might need to get higher coverage. So another benefit of doing this in something like a spreadsheet is that you actually see what the value of your items are so you can adjust your insurance accordingly.

Anyone have experiences to share on claims or best practices on inventory?

Repair and refill Freon (for temp fix) or replace heat pump?
Added on : Saturday July 05th 2014 05:00:05 AM
g: 0 Posted By: sagarrefi
Views: 66 Replies: 2 I have a 26 year old 2.5 ton heat pump and air handler and I understand they need to go. The outdoor heat pump unit leaked Freon three years ago as a valve was bent. It was cheap to repair and add R22 at that time but I can't find the same independent technician now. I would rather do this temporary fix as I am traveling out of town at present for 6 more months.

Now even the cheap techs are saying refilling freon will cost up to $800 (if the leak repair is minor) as R22 is much more expensive. I am torn whether I should go for temporary fix or replace heat pump and air handler. In my area heat pump costs are very high and I am afraid to even ask. One company gave me estimates of $3000 for new compressor and $6500 for heat pump (no band names or details on SEER rating, tonnage etc)

How much should i expect to pay for a new American Standard, Trane or Carrier system installed in DC area? I plan to sell the house in a year and brand name and warranty are important.

Do I have to be present in person to supervise an installation or a casual friend can supervise it? I have read horror stories of problems in installation on these forums. Thanks!

PS: I don't have warranty. A neighbor got a new system all on warranty company cost.

Agricultural wasteland
Added on : Tuesday July 01st 2014 10:00:06 AM
g: 0 Posted By: jedblanks
Views: 16 Replies: 0 Family owns acreage in Texas. Passed down over generations. The taxes are held down by exemption (county tax) on the acreage allows people of meager means to pay the taxes on the property. This exemption (agricultural wasteland) is kept in force by the fact that timber is sold every 8-10 years. It is normally choice cut (everything over a certain diameter), not clear cut so that it will grow back for future sale(s). A neighbor hired a contractor to clear cut his acreage. That contractor clear cut approximately 1/3 of my families land as well without permission.

Not only are there actual damages for the loss of timber, but also future damages for potential loss of exemption (due to it being permanently cleared and no longer used for timber).

Anyone have any experience in the realm?

Whats the best course of action?

Views: 90 Replies: 4 I was thinking about this a little bit along with how arbitrary a home price is. Why would I ever structure an offer with a direct price?

Why not say something like, I offer 100k to 130k and my offer will be 5k more than the highest offer up to the maximum 130k?

This guarantees you have the highest offer, up to what you are willing to spend on the place. I wonder if their is some legislation against this because it is somewhat auction like. Additionally, not sure how the seller would disclose other offers.

Anyone try something like this?

Views: 5686 Replies: 99 I'm considering purchasing a house that needs substantial updating to use as my primary residence. The house is on nearly an acre, was built in the 1950s, added on to in the 1970s, and not much has been done since. It appears to be an estate sale, and the property hasn't changed hands in 25+ years. The sellers are asking $290K, and it's only been on the market for a few days. The market around here is really hot right now, but I don't think this property will necessarily be a super hot commodity. I'm prepping an offer around $250K, and would be willing to go up from there, but I'm not sure how high.

The concern I have is overbuilding the house for the neighborhood. The neighborhood is a total mixed bag, but is in a very desirable location. The nearby properties include houses just like this, and new properties in the range of (EDIT) $600K - $1M+ that were recently build after tearing down the old house and starting over (it's a small neighborhood, these properties are literally three houses down the street and the neighborhood is probably 1/2 old and new, but this particular street skews toward older properties). My agent thinks the land is the most valuable part of the property, valuing it at around $200K, but she says she wouldn't personally put any money into this house and would instead tear it down. This is one of the larger lots in the neighborhood -- many of the others are only 1/2 of an acre, so this is nearly double.

If I put a reasonable amount into rehabbing ($50-60K as a ballpark), I think this could easily be a $400K+ property for someone who wants to live in this area, but who can't afford the $1M+ new properties. The other potential complication is that another neighborhood is slated to go in across the highway within 3-5 years. My agent thinks these will be $500K-$600K properties, but on much smaller lots. I think, like me, there are people that value a really large lot in a good location, but I've not done something like this before and would like to get some good counsel first.

Any thoughts from all of the real estate pros on here?

Views: 218 Replies: 2 I have personal experience owning/renting/managing single family homes and duplexes. I have generally preferred the single family homes. In the neighborhoods I feel most comfortable, these are roughly $100,000 homes that rent at around 1% of that per month.

I was browsing MLS listings the other day and ran across a much larger property that I have no experience with. For about $600k, there is a 24 unit building available. Rectangular basic box shape, all brick, built in 1964, total sq ft about 16k, sitting on about 1 acre.

Granted these are small units at 670 sq ft and very plain inside. But they are kept up, in good shape, and the building is fully leased at around $600/month. It is listed as "commercial", I don't know what tax implications that brings about.

This is the first time I've even looked at something like this and the numbers look too good to be true. Even if 4 of 24 units goes vacant, we are talking a monthly rental intake of 2% of purchase cost, double what many here on FW would consider investment grade.

I have the skills to handle all mild to moderate repair and updates myself. If I quit my job, I would have the time to manage the 24 units. (Let's leave that angle out of this thread for now.)

I'd love to hear from other people that have buildings in this general size range. Do you find that the cookie cutter design makes repairs easier, because you know what to expect in each unit? Do you find that common area repairs (roof, drive, parking), while being more expensive and requiring a lot of cash, are easier to manage as projects, than having several smaller properties to juggle and visit? Wouldn't the lost income when someone moves out be much lower than a single family home because a smaller fraction of my investment is unrented at any given time?

I'm having a hard time thinking of negatives, besides the fact that the tenants are more likely to be young, single, perhaps careless, and more transient. But compared to spending $600k on 6 single family homes, we're talking twice the rental income. Seems worth the potential tenant issues.

Thank you to everyone with experience that weighs in!

A racist Korean War veteran living in a crime-ridden Detroit neighborhood is forced to confront his own lingering prejudice when a troubled Hmong teen from his neighborhood attempts to steal his prized Gran Torino. Decades after the Korean War has ended, ageing veteran Walt Kowalski (Clint Eastwood) is still haunted by the horrors he witnessed on the battlefield. The two objects that matter most to {%Kowalski} in life are the classic Gran Torino that represents his happier days working in a Ford assembly plant, and the M-1 rifle that saved his life countless times during combat. When Kowalski's teenage neighbor (Bee Vang) attempts to steal his Gran Torino as part of a gang initiation rite, the old man manages to catch the aspiring thief at the business end of his well-maintained semi-automatic rifle. Later, due to the pride of the Asian group, the boy is forced to return to Kowalski's house and perform an act of penance.

Views: 4285 Replies: 83 I'm considering purchasing a house that needs substantial updating to use as my primary residence. The house is on nearly an acre, was built in the 1950s, added on to in the 1970s, and not much has been done since. It appears to be an estate sale, and the property hasn't changed hands in 25+ years. The sellers are asking $290K, and it's only been on the market for a few days. The market around here is really hot right now, but I don't think this property will necessarily be a super hot commodity. I'm prepping an offer around $250K, and would be willing to go up from there, but I'm not sure how high.

The concern I have is overbuilding the house for the neighborhood. The neighborhood is a total mixed bag, but is in a very desirable location. The nearby properties include houses just like this, and new properties in the range of (EDIT) $600K - $1M+ that were recently build after tearing down the old house and starting over (it's a small neighborhood, these properties are literally three houses down the street and the neighborhood is probably 1/2 old and new, but this particular street skews toward older properties). My agent thinks the land is the most valuable part of the property, valuing it at around $200K, but she says she wouldn't personally put any money into this house and would instead tear it down. This is one of the larger lots in the neighborhood -- many of the others are only 1/2 of an acre, so this is nearly double.

If I put a reasonable amount into rehabbing ($50-60K as a ballpark), I think this could easily be a $400K+ property for someone who wants to live in this area, but who can't afford the $1M+ new properties. The other potential complication is that another neighborhood is slated to go in across the highway within 3-5 years. My agent thinks these will be $500K-$600K properties, but on much smaller lots. I think, like me, there are people that value a really large lot in a good location, but I've not done something like this before and would like to get some good counsel first.

Views: 190 Replies: 2 Situation:
I have an interesting situation where another unit owner may have family members interested in moving to the area. Because of various (some obvious) reasons, they would prefer to live as close as possible, ideally in our building. At this point, there has only been a query from neighbor of "are you still looking to sell soon?" with the explanation above. At this point, I have not talked to her family members or have any idea of their real interest.

Background:
I'm wanting to sell my city Condo to move out to a SFH in the burbs. We've been wanting to do it for a year or two now, but haven't really gotten around to looking in earnest. We can probably be in here for another year before things start getting cramped. Realistically, we could probably stay 2-3 more years here if required - but after that I think we need to start looking at an area with schools above the 30% mark.

The unit is one of 8 in the building and the last unit sold (across the hall, identical to mine, though maybe not as in good condition) for about 70% of the value I paid for my unit in 2006. Part of the reason it sold so cheap was that it was a foreclosure. Currently, all the units in the building are sold and about half are owner occupied - the rest are rented. One other unit sold at foreclosure about a year or two previously. Other units went up for sale, but the owners decided to keep them as rentals since likely they didn't get their asking price within the short time frame they were trying to sell (all were moving out of state).
Additionally, rent in this area is pretty high and I can probably rent my unit for my costs, but I don't believe I would clear more than say $3-4k a year. I am not really interested in the hassle of being a land lord or the possible extra expenses that may wipe out my yearly take as well as the complications of two mortgages on properties this high.

Challenges:
All being said, it would be extremely convenient for us to have a willing buyer with an extra incentive to have *our* place (or at least one in the building). Likely they would have an elastic schedule, as I believe this will be a second home, which may make things easier for us.
Of course, I'm not willing to just give them an awesome price just because I'm being approached in this manner. But, it does give me some incentive.

I know I'm not going to recoup the total investment in the condo. But, the first thing I am trying to figure out is what is the real value of the property? I obviously think it is worth more than what the foreclosure sold for.
Zillow's Zestimate of my place is about 10% higher than the foreclosure sold for, however it alsoshows the value of the recently sold foreclosed unit for 15% less than what it actually foreclosed for.
I've seen some other indicators that the value maybe 20-25% higher than what the foreclosure sold for, so I have no idea what to trust.

I'm also under the impression that I could take an offer slightly below market value because no realtors are involved (at least I don't think they will need to be). Is that a smart way to think? I realize I can always sell at any time without a realtor, but in this case all the work and challenges of that are taken care of.

In short, I'm interested to make an attractive price and sell since it gives me the incentive to move right now without a lot of the hassle. But, I don't want to take significantly less than market value (whatever that means).

A further possible complication is that there are 4 units in the building which are currently being rented. I wouldn't be surprised if they attempt to make contact with the other units owner's to gauge their interest in selling instead of continuing to rent. My only advantage here is that the other units have leases for renters right now but if these people are flexible they might not mind waiting say 6 months to get another unit at a substantial savings. OTOH, some of these units have been rented for 2-3 years and I have the feeling those owners are looking to hold on to the units as long as possible to try and recoup their initial costs - or - some of them were purchased at a lower price than mine (with a better rate) that makes them more attractive for rental opportunities.

Any advice on how to approach this is appreciated. It may be a few weeks before I know how serious the potential buyers are - but I'd like to be prepared when that time comes.

Im really excited for this, the third edition of this book. Every year it just gets better, and for 2014, Ive expanded the descriptions, added more great photos, and increased the number of entries, including over 70 places to get free food and drink.
This really is the best available guide on whats free or how to get it for free -- in the best City in the world.
When I first moved to New York, I was so broke I couldnt pay attention. I had no choice but to seek out all thats great and free in the big city. It was all right there in front of me, and I wasnt going to let it pass me by just because I couldnt pay for it!
I found that there are tons and tons and TONS of great things to do in New York that wont cost you a dime. With this book, you have access to the best of whats free, compiled into one reference.
You could be in the know, doing 100% FREE, yet fun and rewarding, activities such as:

- Free Kayak Rentals on the Hudson River
- Free performances including jazz, rock shows, plays, spoken word, beat boxing, dance comedy, word beat, blues, experimental artists, the list goes on!
- List of the best free museums and art galleries from the Village to Harlem
- Free T.V. show tapings
- Free movies, festivals, and more entertainment
- Free food and drinks
- Free kids activities

For example, many know about Shakespeare In The Park, but have you ever heard about the hilarious (and free) Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre? Its a free comedy show with many Saturday Night Live alum.

WHY THIS E-GUIDEBOOK IS DIFFERENT
This book is not about discount travel. Its about FREE travel.

- Its exclusively formatted for the Kindle and Kindle App

A Hawaiian Family Vacation: Oahu
http://www.amazon.com/A-Hawaiian-Family-Vacation-Oahu-ebook/dp/B...

What would a woman who grew up in Hawaii show her mainland-born husband and son when they visited Oahu? A former Honolulu resident profiles various beaches, tourist sights, and different types of local food in a new Amazon ebook.

A Hawaiian Family Vacation: Oahu is a virtual scrapbook, with photos and commentary of various Oahu destinations. Barbara Lougheed was born and raised in Honolulu, graduated from the University of Hawaii, moved to the mainland, and married a mainlander. After her son was born and was old enough to travel, she had to plan her first visit back home and decide what to show her mainland born husband and son. She came back to visit every few years, and her new ebook is a summary of the places they visited and the foods they ate. Readers benefit from a different point of view than other travel guidebooks.

Photos and reviews of famous locations like Waikiki and Hanauma Bay are included, but so are other lesser-known areas like Chinatown and Hoomaluhia Botanical Garden. See her son jumping off the rock at Waimea Bay on the North Shore, posing with a turtle at Turtle Beach, eating Waiola shave ice in Kapahulu, hanging from a Banyan tree in Kapiolani Park, ringing the bell and feeding the fish at Byodo-In Temple in Kaneohe, and swimming to Flat Island at Kailua Beach.

Dining reviews cover the local plate lunch, along with other locations serving Chinese, Korean, and Hawaiian food, Pacific Rim cuisine, supermarket deli food, a shrimp truck on the North Shore, and even mochi ice cream.

Choosing a Hawaiian Island to Visit, the last section in the book, details the differences between the Hawaiian Islands, so visitors can decide for themselves which island best suits them. Kauai, Oahu, Maui, and The Big Island of Hawaii differ in population, types of beaches, activities, and ambience, but visitors may not be aware of these differences.

Economics of Rehabbing a House (i.e., am I overbuilding an old house?)
Added on : Wednesday June 04th 2014 04:00:10 AM
g: 1 Posted By: ltcm
Views: 136 Replies: 10 I'm considering purchasing a house that needs substantial updating to use as my primary residence. The house is on nearly an acre, was built in the 1950s, added on to in the 1970s, and not much has been done since. It appears to be an estate sale, and the property hasn't changed hands in 25+ years. The sellers are asking $290K, and it's only been on the market for a few days. The market around here is really hot right now, but I don't think this property will necessarily be a super hot commodity. I'm prepping an offer around $250K, and would be willing to go up from there, but I'm not sure how high.

The concern I have is overbuilding the house for the neighborhood. The neighborhood is a total mixed bag, but is in a very desirable location. The nearby properties include houses just like this, along with $1M+ properties that were recently build after tearing down the old house and starting over (it's a small neighborhood, these properties are literally three houses down the street and the neighborhood is probably 1/2 old and new). My agent thinks the land is the most valuable part of the property, valuing it at around $200K, but she says she wouldn't personally put any money into this house and would instead tear it down. I don't know if I believe this. If I put a reasonable amount into rehabbing ($50-60K as a ballpark), I think this could easily be a $400K+ property for someone who wants to live in this area, but who can't afford the $1M+ new property. The other potential complication is that another neighborhood is slated to go in across the highway within 3-5 years. My agent thinks these will be $500K-$600K properties, but on much smaller lots. I think, like me, there are people that value a really large lot in a good location, but I've not done something like this before and would like to get some good counsel first.

Any thoughts from all of the real estate pros on here?

Question about multiple claims against my homeowner's insurance.
Added on : Wednesday May 28th 2014 03:00:09 PM
g: 0 Posted By: chocula
Views: 31 Replies: 0 I have a couple of questions about making another claim against my homeowner's insurance.

I have had the same insurance company for my house and car for about 15 years or so. I never had a claim until about 8 years ago when our town was hit pretty hard by tornadoes and an extremely large tree landed on our house. Somehow our chimney took the brunt force of the tree (i was sleeping under where the tree landed on the house), it still did about $30k in damage to our house.
We filed an insurance claim and they paid everything but our deductible. Other than about 3 or 4 back and forth messages there were no issues with getting the work approved and the contractor paid.

About 2 years ago, I got a chip in my windshield and was told that the insurance company would repair those for free. We had a guy come out to the house and he repaired the windshield.

We have lived in our current house for almost 7 years and have never had a claim against it. Last year, we had a really bad storm and about 60% of the houses on our street had their roofs replaced. We decided against repairing the roof or filing a claim since we had one previously. In the 7 years we have lived here, we have had several bad storms.
Last week, we had another pretty bad storm and the builders were out in force trying to get people to replace their roofs.

After the most recent storm, we had a very small amount of water in our garage where you could see it leaked from the roof area.

My wife and I were discussing whether or not we should get our roof replaced and decided to have someone inspect the roof. You can clearly see the damage from the hail on the shingles and the flashing. Several of our screens were damaged as well. My vehicle has a few hail marks on it, but it is 8 years old and a few marks on it are no big deal.

The builder that inspected our roof said that the front part of our roof has a great deal of damage, but surprisingly the back part of the roof is not that bad.

I have read here that just calling your insurance company about these issues can count against you, so I wanted to get some advice before calling them.

My questions:
1. Will having another claim cause my premiums to go up?
2. Can they cancel my insurance if I have a 2nd claim? I am guessing it will be $5-6k to replace the roof (based on the costs for my neighbors to get their roofs repaired).
3. The builder said that my insurance company may not pay for the back part of my roof because it was not that bad. Would an insurance company only repair half a roof?
3A. Our house that was hit by a tree in Atlanta was a split level and only one roof was damaged. We paid for one roof and the insurance company paid for the other one,
4. Do you have any advice for me with this situation?

Thanks in advance. We are obviously trying to get the roof repaired, but at the same time do not want to lose our insurance.

Potentially Dangerous Tree?
Added on : Wednesday May 28th 2014 03:00:06 AM
g: 0 Posted By: nhokt
Views: 78 Replies: 3 Since the tree thread can has been opened again....

We have about 2 acres of land, most of which is heavily wooded forest that abuts a few neighbors smaller lots, the property boundaries aren't clearly marked that I can see.

On what appears to be very near the edge of our(?) property and close to a neighbors house there is a ~80' pine tree that is rotting at the base due to previous wind damage. An arborist eyeballed it from a distance, said it looked dangerous and recommended it be taken down. Tree service would most likely need to access the tree through neighborsproperty to take it down.

This is the one neighbor we don't know well. I stopped over and had a quick discussion where they didn't seem concerned and didn't want to do anything about it.

Situationseems like a giant liability to me, myidea is to use my legal plan to have a liability release drawn up for any potential damage or harm the tree may cause if it falls and have the neighbors sign it.

What I am missing? Is this risk still too high with the liability release?

Views: 10 Replies: 0 We are moving and are considering renting vs. selling our current home. We toyed with the idea of a rental property but figured we should buy a cheaper house in the neighborhood, fix it up a bit, then rent it. There are pretty beat houses in the neighborhood going for 50-90k, we purchased this house 5 years ago in fairly decent shape for 130k. We are also concerned with the current housing stock in the area used for comparable. There are very few houses that have been fixed up then sold, but the ones that have sold fast.

The dilemma that we have with our current house is that we did upgrades over the past few years with the intent of selling not renting. We refinished the hardwood flooring throughout, have mid-grade kitchen cabinets with granite countertops, refinished the bathtub, etc. We are not sure that it is worth the potential risk of damage to the property if/when we choose to sell it but we don't want to eat money by selling if renting might work out a little better. Here are the numbers

Average rental in this neighborhood 1200-1450/mo
Price we think we could get for ours 1300-1400/mo
Final sale price we think we would end up getting 140-145k (minus closing costs and seller subsidy)Purchased the home for 130k
Still Owe 113k
mortgage + insurance + taxes 1048

1048 mortgage + ins + taxes
130 10% vacancy
130 10% maintenance
40 water
----------
1348 rent - is this the proper way of calculating the rent price?

Views: 93 Replies: 0 I'm 27 years old. I work in IT and I make $107k a year. Last fall I accepted a position in Switzerland, but so far I've been unable to obtain a work permit. Thread about thathere.I have at most 2 more months until I receive a final decision, but I'm not optimistic at all anymore. In the meantime, I had another job come up, a contract opportunity which pays a fair bit more than what I'm making now, but it wouldn't be very challenging. My dream job would be to work as a pre-sales engineer or as a solutions architect.

Now let's talk about my GF. We've been together for nearly 3 years now. I would like to keep her around for a lot longer, she's a keeper. She's defending her dissertation next month and after that she'll have to find a post-doctorate for 2-5 years. Afterwards, she plans on pursuing a career in academia. She is currently interviewing for a post-doc in Switzerland and has a very good chance of getting the position, as well as a work permit.

Here are our options as far as I can tell:

1. (preferred, but unlikely) My Swiss work permit comes through and my GF gets a post-doc in Switzerland
pros:

I make close to $150k/year with overtime/on-call pay, she makes about $105k/year
We share an apartment, reducing our expenses
We get to explore all of Europe

cons:

​high cost of living, however our salaries would be more than enough to live well in Switzerland

2. I take the contract job, she looks for a different post-doc in the US.
pros:

I make $80/hour on a W2 with benefits
I have a lot of control over my job, it's basically a one-man show

cons:

my gf would make $45k/year, she would have to live in a high cost area, and we wouldn't be living together
my job wouldn't be very challenging
I'm not growing profesionally
my gf wouldn't be able to find the best post-doc she can, she would be settling for something average

3. I look for a pre-sales engineer or solutions architect job, either here or overseas. I would have to wait until I have resolution on my Swiss visa before I can proceed with this path
pros:

I'm doing exactly what I want to be doing
Ideally, my gf and I would be living together
I make a bit more money than I currently do
This job typically requires at least 50% travel (my gf would be OK with this)

cons:

There simply aren't that many of these jobs around
I have the required technical knowledge and experience for the job, however, I don't have much experience with responding to RFIs/RFPs and have limited experience with giving demos or public speaking
I may not have the right personality for the job. I'm an introvert, and at times can be socially awkward around strangers. I definitely do not have the salesman personality
If the job is in the US, my gf would only be making $45k/year.

4. I can take the $80/hour offer to my current boss and I can ask him to see what he can do with it. I'm pretty much at the maximum pay for my job grade, so I would pretty much need to be promoted in order to get more money (which we've talked about recently, he said it could happen within the next year). I am currently working remotely and very rarely have to travel. I can probably probably get my boss to agree to let me work from Switzerland

pros:

I can probably get another $5-10k more
my job is actually challenging, and I get to do things I enjoy
If my GF gets the Switzerland job, I can stay with her for extended periods of time (I can stay in Switzerland 90 days at a time as a tourist. I can probably fly to neighboring countries, and take a train into Switzerland so my passport doesn't get stamped, so it doesn't look suspicous)
my gf would make $105k

cons:

it would be really shitty of me if my boss goes out of his way to keep me with the company, but a few weeks later I get my Swiss work permit, and I end up quitting
my coworkers are f#cking morons
I would be pretty much living in Switzerland illegally. I don't know what would happen if I got sick or injured. I don't know if my US-based health insurance would cover me.
my boss may not go for it
going back and forth between the US and Switzerland will get old after a while, and would be expensive too
high cost of living, although I think we would make enough to live comfortably

Any thoughts or advice?

How to find good real estate attorney quick / semi FSBO
Added on : Tuesday May 13th 2014 05:00:09 PM
g: 0 Posted By: GermanExpat
Views: 75 Replies: 1 I have a question around selling our house. We are getting our house ready to sell and had picked a Realtor that we were ready to sign a contract with some time later in the week or next week. There were still some small things to be done to get the house ready (some tiles to be replaced, get the clutter out etc.).

By chance we found a letter in our mailbox from somebody asking if they can look at the house. They did hear from a friend living in our extended neighborhood that probably knew from our neighbors that we are getting ready to sell.

We called the number on the letter and talked to the family and they did tour the house today for an extended time (with me partially present at the beginning). I just got a call that they are interested in the house and would like to know our price. They do know we don't have a realtor yet and are willing to deal without a realtor and just use real estate attorneys. Ok now making a long story short I have to get back to them with our price and will give them a discount on our price based on not involving a realtor.

But now we are a bit unprepared to go through with a (semi) FSBO but for sure a realtor is not worth the 50k+ commission on our house just for holding our hands. I am trying to get a crash course now how to sell myself. So here are my questions and please add anything I might have missed:

- get a real estate attorney asap, how do I go finding a good one?
- ask the seller to send an offer in with earnest money attached to it (I assume our real estate attorney could hold it in a trust account?)
- find a title company for the closing (I assume this has some time or should I just ask the real estate attorney after finding one). It is Colorado and from what I understand in most cases the seller picks the title company albeit the buyer can select one as well.

I assume my biggest issue is finding a real estate attorney right away and have them check out the offer. The potential buyer stated he has a relative (uncle) in his current state he can use to draft the offer. So how do I go to find a good real estate attorney within a day?

Anything else I should consider?

Also on a side note the realtor did have a 1 week limited agreement. We already had a letter in the mailbox 2 weeks ago and asked him to follow up and signed a limited agreement with him for a couple days to show the house to this potential buyer and 2 of his agent friends had candidates that wanted to see the house as well. One buyer made a lowish offer and we did not accept it and our verbal counter was too high for them. The realtor was kind of pushy to talk us down price wise (ok, no surprise here). They then decided to wait for us to put the house on the market probably hoping it gets closer to their Target price. I don't feel we owe our realtor anything because he didn't have to do any work yet (no MLS listing, no adds etc.) and the limited agreement expired anyway. We are not in a hot area of the country, sales are doing reasonable well and not a huge inventory of houses comparable to ours (and they seem to sell much quicker then last year in our price range). But we were still a bit puzzled to have people show up before we even are ready to sell it. The realtor also kind of tried to low ball our house based on he didn't like our style (our house is quite contemporary and he has a more traditional style preference) and probably also to make it sell quicker (he did use some debatable comps and focused on per square foot price but we have e.g. a lot premium because of the lot location).
Need Advice - Feels cheated in buying first home

Views: 346 Replies: 19 Hello folks, Need help, long time reader first time posting !!
We closed on single family house in good neighborhood in MA. We closed on house on April 10th and on the day of closing through walkthrough we found lot of problems

1. The sellers mentioned in MLS that property had wall to wall carpet but when we did walkthrough there was no carpet at one of the corner of masterbedroom and walk-in closet wither, there were subfloor and we could see nails through the floor. It was really dangerous with 6 year daughter with us.

2. The house is 3 bedrooms but the previous owners had made bedroom in the garage and we asked they to remove and convert back to garage. But in the P&S our attorney did not made it clearly that we wanted to have garage back done by licensed contractor and need all the invoices. We did make lot of request in our emails but our attorney failed to add it in P&S and now the wall which is converted doesnt fit under proper code.
The previous homeowners had lot of police activity since the guy had citations and he did not had licensed police came once we moved in 2 weeks back. I feel very bad to see the police at my home without any of my fault.

3. Also when the house was listed on MLS it had over the ground pool, when we saw the house on open house we asked the listing agent about it. We asked her does the swimming pool comes with the property she verbally said YES but after inspection (we did inspect the pool) before P&S they said the Pool encroaches the other property by 20 FT so we have to remove the pool otherwise it will affect the mortgage, and we said OK to remove the pool. At the end of the closing they removed the pool but did not clean up the sand and concrete blocks(14 of them)We thought when they say take out pool means they will take everything out. I know we were the fools and others made us fools.

From the day one we got the house we feel cheated, cheated by seller, listing agent and our attorney too.
We feel bad about our decision, we were on budget and we wanted a house in a good neighborhood so being a first time homebuyer we did lots and lots of mistake which we regret it.
Its too late now we know that.

But my question to my fellow fatwallet friends is do we have any case here against the seller/listing agent or attorney for misinterpretation ??
Does it worth to fight?? we put all our hardearned money to make it home ..we feel cheated all the time.
Do you know any attorney services which works for free or little money right now?? But first should we have a case here ???


Please people help me. Thanks for reading big post.

Minimizing interest income on proprietary investment

Views: 30 Replies: 0 Hello FW,

I am invested in a vehicle that returns interest income every 5 months @ 15%. This investment is proprietary and not traded on any exchanged. I am issued a 1099-int yearly for tax purposes.

My question is how can I reduce my tax burden on this? I would think a retirement account but how can I get an instrument like this to be held in a 401k/Roth/other?

Any other ideas?

It's a very hot neighborhood in the Boston area, and there is clearly more demand than supply, so most places are selling within a day or two, usually above asking price. We bid on a place where we were told there were 5 bidders. We bid significantly over asking. Found out yesterday that we had the highest bid, but the seller opted to go with another bidder because they had waived the mortgage contingency and had waived their right to negotiate after the inspection for any issues less than $20,000.

Curious to get the FWF crowd's perspective on these tactics in a hot RE market. With regards to the mortgage - I have pre-approval from a mortgage broker for significantly more than what we bid. (Also planning to put down at least 20%). Am I being overly cautious to keep the mortgage contingency in future offers? My understanding is that there are three types of risk in waiving the mortgage contingency:

1. If we for some reason can't get a loan, we lose our deposit which is a sizeable amount of money.
2. If the appraisal comes in below the offer price, we may be stuck making up the difference.
3. If we can't get a good rate, we are stuck paying a higher interest rate

All of these reasons (especially the first) make me wary of waiving the mortgage contingency. I also am wary of waiving the inspection contingency, as most of the houses in our neighborhood are over 100 years old, so there are lots of potentially hidden issues.

At the same time, don't want to always be non-competitive with an offer.

Any ideas on how to be competitive while also protecting myself?

Product Description

The 10W Kustom KG110 combo guitar amplifier boasts a 10" Kustom speaker for big tones, rugged dependability, and intuitive operation. Unlike most 10W guitar amps, the Kustom KG110 provides separate Lead and Rhythm channels and Bass and Treble controls.

The KG110 amp's Rhythm channel offers clear, dynamic tones that are perfect for a wide variety of musical styles. Using the Gain control, the Lead channel can dish out anything from classic rock sounds to the heaviest, modern metal tones. Use the Bass and Treble controls to dial in the best EQ for your instrument.

Like every Kustom KG amplifier, the KG110 offers an auxiliary input for plugging in an MP3 or CD player to practice along with tunes and a 1/8" headphone input that silences the internal speaker for late-night playing. Your family and neighbors will love it.

All KG Series amplifiers include a 5-year, transferable electronics warranty to give you extra peace-of-mind with your purchase. For tone, features and value, you'd be hard-pressed to beat the Kustom KG110 combo.

We just published updates for Cerberus (version 2.5) and Client Cerberus (version 2.0). There are some cool new features in Client Cerberus, that will make easier to recover your lost or stolen phone from another Android device:

- Web control, like remote control from the web dashboard but integrated into the app

- Touch the device name and you'll see a navigation icon, that will start "Navigation Mode" : the Google Maps navigator will start, and Cerberus will update the destination if you device moves

- If you are near the lost device, touch the radar icon to start "Radar Mode": WiFi hotspot will be started on the lost device and Client Cerberus will display the network signal, so you should have a very good indication (better than GPS) on how near you are to the lost device.

Oh, and since it's Cerberus birthday we need to celebrate: all new accounts created for the next 30 hours will get a free license! The promotion starts now (midnight GMT) and ends at 6 AM of April 26.

Views: 17 Replies: 0 What I mean by "urban apartment" is an apartment in a building with many apartments. Some apartments are noisy, some are quiet. There are many other variables.

Me:
-I ask the realtor and sometimes knock on neighbors doors to ask if it's quiet, what the building's like, and what they think of management/landlord.
-I check under the refrigerator, oven, and under the sink to see if there's signs of pests.
-A friend of mine actually got keys to a place from realtor before renting it to show it to friends. I wish I knew how she asked for that, any ideas?

What other tips?

Would you rent to someone with a strong smell (of food/incense)?

Views: 0 Replies: 0 I'm scheduled to negotiate a lease with a potential landlord tomorrow. Only much to my surprise, a roommate in the apartment where I'm subletting a room, keeps burning incense and frying onions. I woke up this morning and all of my coats are permeated with incense and food smells. And they are all dry clean. (And it's a Massachusetts holiday today.)

My plan is to go back to my personal apartment (not the sublet) and change into clean smelling clothes. My coats all stink and I cannot hang them outside since I'm in a city. So I plan to carry a zipping bag and put my coat in there before entering the realtor's office. It would be nice if he didn't care about these odors, but I suspect he would, and that he would be less lenient while negotiating the lease if I smelled strong.

Any thoughts?

(I admit to being exhausted right now too because this neighbor also plays loud music day and night and seems to sleep through it somehow. It will be nice to be in my own apartment again. Soon, hopefully.

Empty lot, thinking about building TH and sell them
Added on : Monday April 14th 2014 07:00:07 AM
g: 0 Posted By: freejunkmail
Views: 74 Replies: 1 My family owns a dump in a re-developing area. The house itself has been vacant for years and is all messed up, totally worthless. The land, however, is quite sizable at approx 1 acre. My realtor says I can sell the land for $150000.

After touring around the area, I noticed there are a lot of new TH built. The asking price is in the 200's. It got me to think if I hire contractor to build a set of TH and sell them, maybe it can be much more profitable? Not sure about that particular area, but the housing market for the whole city is in good shape. I have visited many sites, but all of them talk about building single-family houses. I have yet to find a guide about building a set of TH. So the helpful FW forum springs to mind.

Here are my pros and cons analysis:
Pros: I own the land to myself. My schedule is flexible. I have good credit score. I also got some disposable cash, around 200k.
Cons: Have no experience in construction whatsoever.

So far that's all I can think of. Maybe I'm missing some important factors. My main questions are:
How many 2 story, 1600sqft, 2-3br TH will fit on the lot? I set that parameter because it seems like the popular type in the neighborhood.
How much money can I borrow from the bank, with the land being the collateral. How much more do I have to put in.
How long does such project usually take?

Since they will all be up for sale, I don't have any personal preference. Anything conventional will do. Please offer your thoughts. Thanks!

Bought house in July 2005 for 440k - primary 20% down payment
Market took a hit and went way south - to around 280k
May 2012 bought another house(7 miles away from first house) for 300k and moved into it
Rented first house in 2012 Aug - cashflow negative by 250 every month without considering maintenance. Market value as of that time is around 305k but county value was 280k
Market value as of today for the first house is 340 - 350k. Remaining mortgage is 310k

Old house facts:
Not sure of the real estate future in this area as the recovery in this neighborhood is sub-par compared to other areas in the region
Metro train coming within 5 miles in next 5 - 7 years which could be good and give good uplift to values
Avg to below average rental area as of today
Paying 4.75% rate

Questions:
If I sell this house today - how will the tax treatment be -- can i deduct losses?
What if i sell and buy a rental in better location (with additional funding) would it make good business sense?
From pure financials point of view - does it make sense to sell at this point?

Have other rentals too but this is my biggest dud

-We are young couple and a family of 3! - Both in IT consulting- HHI ~150k. We hve about $40k saved for a down payment
-Are contemplating on purchasing a property in north Dallas suburbs - McKinney, Allen, Murphy or generally north of or near Plano TX.
-Are seeing all our known friends and acquaintances buying/bought new 3500+ sq.ft houses in this area in the 400k+ price range (new homes)
-Are also seeing re-sales homes (~10yrs old) in same sizes for about $300k
-New homes have a relatively smaller lot and not sure how the neighborhoods and schools are yet say at Allen or McKinney etc.
Questions:
-Is it justifiable to buy a new property dropping about $450k (that's what is final cost as of yesterday with Khovanian, First TX, Grand, Pulte etc) for a 3500 sq.ft home.
-it looks like the market is hot for the new homes and builders are almost sold out in many locations!
-will these homes hold value in the future
-Does these Dallas suburbs have a strong economy to support these prices?
-How easy or hard will it be to sell these homes if it needs to be?
-Does a family of 3 need a 3500+sqft home or it it too much for us?r we trying to keep up with the jones?

In a nutshell we will be thankful for a general opinions on buying new homes in these suburbs of TX both from an investment and personal property perspective.

"In order to take control of your health I recommend you make an attempt to grow your own food the Beyond Organic way."
--Jordan Rubin, NMD, PhD, New York Times Bestselling Author, Founder--Garden of Life
> Learn why most farms and gardens, even if certified organic, produce food which is not nutritious enough to keep you healthy, but by understanding the secrets of how foods can be grown to maximize their health-giving properties, you will be empowered to Create Health from the Soil Up!

> Discover an amazing and revolutionary new insight which explains why 45% of Americans have a chronic disease and how you can avoid this awful fate through totally natural means so you can enjoy Vibrant Health.

> Understand the surprising, underlying reason why 2/3 of American adults are overweight or obese, and how this problem can be overcome so one can enjoy their Ideal Body Weight.

Our foods have lost up to 70% of some nutrients in the last 70 years. Even organic foods have little more nutrient density than those conventionally grown. This loss of nutrition may explain, at least in part, our increasing health concerns. Whatever your goals and dreams in life, all will be more easily achieved when your body and mind receive the best nutrition from optimally-grown foods.

Learn how the Beyond Organic Growing System (BOGS) can produce Nutrition Grown foods, with many times the nutrient content of typical produce. See independent, third-party laboratory analyzed comparisons of Nutrition Grown foods vs. USDA food nutrient database listings. This book also brings you cutting edge research on how fruit growing methods can effect blood glucose levels in humans.

Plants must receive the optimal nutrition they need to be able to express their full potentials to create large arrays of health-giving phytonutrients. In turn, people and animals who eat these Nutrition Grown plants receive the phytonutrients they need to help them express their full potentials.

Views: 95 Replies: 1 Amazon has the 4D Game of Thrones Westeros Puzzle for $9.83. Free Super Saver Shipping on orders of $35 or more. Temporarily out of stock, but you may order at this price and it will ship when available.

The next lowest price I could findI could find was $49.99 shipped. 3.8/5 stars based on 24 reviews herefrom another Amazon seller.

"4D Cityscape introduces the puzzle for Game of Thrones, based on the award-winning HBO series. This puzzle guides players through the assembly of the map of Westeros in patented multi-layer action. The first layer is a 1000-plus piece jigsaw puzzle that teaches you all about the various locations and regions of Westeros. The second layer is an artistic 200-plus piece jigsaw puzzle that, once assembled, replicates the current landscape based on the famous locations of the series. The third layer adds 3D miniature replica that you insert into the puzzle, including famous cities and castles such as King's Landing, Winter fell, The Eyrie, the Wall and more."

This looks really fricken difficult but it might make a great gift for a fan of this series.

Amazon: PetSafe Outdoor Ultrasonic Bark Deterrent - $37.49
Added on : Sunday March 16th 2014 11:00:06 PM
g: 1 Posted By: MrsF
Views: 145 Replies: 0 PetSafe Outdoor Ultrasonic Bark Deterrent - $37.49 - Amazon: Free Shipping

List Price: $69.99 Price: $37.49 You Save: $32.50 (46%)

Decorative outdoor bark deterrent with bird-house theme
Safe and effective bark control for all sizes and breeds of dogs
Range: Up to 50 feet (15 meters)
Ultrasonic correction; no collar needed
Detects repetitive barking; 4 correction settings
Durable and weatherproof
Uses 9v alkaline battery (not included)


http://www.amazon.com/PetSafe-Outdoor-Ultrasonic-Bark-Deterrent/dp/B000UZNLGA/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

How it works:When a dog barks within the 50-foot range of the Outdoor Bark Control Deterrent, an internal microphone picks up the sound and activates the unit. It emits an ultrasonic sound. Most humans will not be able to hear this tone, but it can be easily heard by dogs. Startled by the high-pitched sound, which is safe and effective for dogs of all sizes and breeds, the dogs barking will be deterred. Dogs will soon associate their barking with the unpleasant tone, and will remain quiet to avoid the sound. When the dog stops barking, the ultrasonic sound also stops.The Outdoor Bark Control has three range levels to choose from, which indicate what distance the barking will activate the unit. The test mode will ensure the microphone and speaker is working. Low Range will protect up to 15 feet, and Medium Range will double that measurement to 30 feet. The Range will maximize the unit to 50 feet. You can use the device to deter your barking dog or your neighbors dog. You can also train puppies not to bark or deter barking on camping trips. With its unique birdhouse disguise, your visitors and neighbors will never know what you are using it for.*Please note: This product might not work on 10% of dogs, specifically dogs who's ears may be covered or down facing. The sound may not reach their ears enough to function properly. These dogs may benefit more from a bark collar*Up to a 50 feet range keeps all dogs within that range quiet. A durable and weatherproof design gives you satisfaction in knowing your barking problem will be solved in any weather.
A two-color good/low battery indicator lets you know when your deterrent needs a new battery.
Uses 9v alkaline battery (not included).

Views: 177 Replies: 4 Hi, I was looking for a pre-owned 07-08 Range Rover with high miles that has the Luxury pkg/Cooled seats feature and I found one online at a dealer in FL (I live in PA). They mention on their websitethat the vehicle has "Heated and cooled front & rear seats".

I called them and a polite rep confirmed availability and we settled on a sale price and they said I could get it shipped or fly in and pickup the car. I checked the vehicle's carfax and it looked great with dealer services every 7-8k miles. They asked for a deposit to hold the car and I gave them $500 over the phone using a credit card. They emailed me the contract and credit card receipt which I promptly signed and emailed it back the same day.

The next evening, my wife was looking at the pictures on their website and noticed the suv does not have the rotary knob for cooling seats (my wife knows more about this vehicle than me, unfortunately she was busy at work when i decided to go for it), so we did some research of other similar range rovers and found a match with that feature on eBay - same year & model. We noted the differences and the following morning, I sent an email with pictures of this vehicle's dashboard and another vehicle's dashboard and marked the differences.

They didn't reply back so I called them and the rep said it could be a mistake on their website and offered a price reduction of $700, however I believe the value of that feature is a lot more than what was offered and asked for $2000 (the pkg costs $4500 on a new vehicle). They disagreed and I asked them to cancel the deal and refund the deposit. She then discussed with the dealership owner and said I was having buyer's remorse and since I want to back out of the deal they won't refund my credit card deposit. This has nothing to do with buyer's remorse and I'll gladly buy the vehicle with a $2000 price reduction.

I've saved pictures of their vehicle and the other comparable vehicle and marked the difference. I also saved pdf printouts of the vehicle description and the photos from their website. I called the credit card company and setup a dispute. They started one but weren't sure if it will go through since I signed a contract that says all deposits are non-refundable under any circumstances but they will try anyway. I also filed a complaint on the florida attorney general's website. Do you think I've done enough or anything else remaining? thanks

HOA sponsoring the yearly "neighborhood night out"
Added on : Tuesday March 11th 2014 03:00:08 PM
g: 0 Posted By: skagen
Views: 25 Replies: 1 So my wife is on the board of our HOA. Yes, HOAs are evil, bad things on this forum. Our community has about 400 residences... 25% houses, 75% townhomes.

So on the annual statement/billing, which is only $150 per year so it's not too bad, there's a line item in the yearly budget summary for $1,000 for the annual neighborhood get together (National night out). Apparently, there was an idea that the HOA would contribute to this event (buy food, initially an inflatable jumper (scary, not happening)), which is typically held at a park which is technically city property (a neighborhood park).

Me, I saw it and thought it was totally inappropriate for the HOA to be funding such an event. But I have never been on the board of an HOA and so I'm not really versed when it comes to this.

So a couple of questions -

1) Is it common for an HOA to chip in to an event like this?
2) Are there any legal concerns with doing so? (say food was purchased, some kid has an allergic reaction, etc) - I'm not a lawyer, just know that there are some sue-happy people out there.

I told my wife I had to post this on FW as I feel like there would be a lot of good insight from members here.

Thank you in advance

door ding in parking lot, but I have other car's plate
Added on : Saturday March 08th 2014 01:00:09 PM
g: 0 Posted By: civ2k1
Views: 225 Replies: 6 I was parking in a parking structure this afternoon and there were no spaces available after driving all the levels. On the way down I found 1, but the guy was parked over the line.

I only planned to be gone for about 20 minutes, so it would be quick.

I was able to park leaving reasonable space on one side (where the neighbouring car that was parked in his space wasn't inconvenienced), and I climbed out of my car on the passenger side.

I took a couple photos of the car over the line and his plate just in case (should have listened to my inner voice and just not parked there).

Anyway, I just got back to my car and there's a pretty serious door ding (door panel is creased). I guess technically I can't prove it was that guy since I didn't see it happen. Should I waste my time reporting to my insurance (I'm assuming they can track the guy down based on the plate) or just suck it up because reporting to my insurance won't help and I'll end up with a claim on my record?

And I know, I was probably asking for it by knowingly parking there. Let's move on from that.

Edited to add: quite likely the door that hit me is a rental car, not sure if that helps, hurts, or doesn't matter. And I don't know how to post pics from mobile, but will do so later.

Looking for Advice on Affordability of Home Purchase
Added on : Sunday March 02nd 2014 09:00:07 AM
g: 0 Posted By: BillRHIT
Views: 182 Replies: 7 Hi all, I have run a lot of numbers and am on the verge of making an offer on a home. I believe we can comfortably afford it, but would like to hear others opinions and see if I have missed anything. I acknowledge that we don't "need" this fancy/large of a house, but I would prefer to buy our "dream home" now as opposed to buying an intermediary home and in 5-10 years moving up. We live in the midwest (not Chicago), so housing is cheap here.

My wife and I make a combined $250K. ($200 for me, $50 for her). My job is as stable as I could hope for. My income could fluctuate year to year, but should generally increase over time. I'm a new partner in a well established mid size law firm.

We currently live in a $140K home and owe about $80K on it. In addition to that $50-60K equity, we have $450K in liquid funds and $300K in retirement savings. Both of our cars are worth about 25K each and are paid off, and we have no debt other than the mortgage. We currently have a two year old son, and hope to have one more child in the near future. Our current home is too small for a second child. We spend $1000 a month on child care and will send our kids to the local public schools, which are very good.

Home would be 600K, maximum. Property taxes are roughly 5.5K annually with $500/yr HOA fees. With a 200K down payment and a 4.125% 30 year mortgage for the rest I figure the payment (all in) would be $2500/month.

Our net income is about $160,000. This accounts for taxes, health insurance, HSA contributions, and maxing out retirement savings. Obviously this would go up if we were to take on the larger mortgage.

Based on this, the mortgage described above would be ~19% of our take home pay. We would still have 300K in savings (provided our current home sells quickly, which we expect based on it being in great shape and the cheapest home in a desirable neighborhood/school district). I expect to spend about 20K furnishing the new home in the next few months.

Am I missing anything? Thanks in advance for your thoughts. I know many may think this is too much house, and I hear that, but you could spend it in worse ways, right?

Views: 66 Replies: 1 I have an extended family member who qualifies for elderly disabled subsidized housing in Massachusetts. The main concern is about the safety of these dwellings. I am aware that many people are disabled as a result of a highly communicable disease. An example would be drug-resistant tuberculosis. There's probably no way of knowing if the previous tenanthad an awful incurable transmittable diseases. And perhaps no way of knowing if a neighbor has something like that either (where the germs can just flow into your open window or contaminate the indoor hallway).

On the other hand, the incentive to live in a place like that is that they only charge 30% of a person's income. And if someone has no income, I believe monthly rent can be as low as $35 a month! Of course, that sort of savings is nothing compared to the misery and medical expense one would incur by catching some awful ailment. I've tried contacting the agency that runs these developments and all I got were vague answers. I think this is a common question, so hopefully someone on here would know the answer. I would really like to know specifics about what they do to ensure that diseases like my example of TB, don't run rampant (or get spread to a few unlucky individuals by means of their dwelling). I did a google search about this and found nothing. While I believe that this does fit FW since it's partially a financial issue, I would be interested in posting this elsewhere as well, if anyone's aware of a more appropriate forum (which I am not aware of and could not find).

So, my last thread was all about my debt related to a great foreclosure purchase I made in the last 6 months. I've settled in the home and everything is going fairly well. I currently live in a neighborhood which has an adjacent through street that gets a pretty good amount of traffic, particularly during rush hours. Everything around me is zoned for single-family properties but there are some small offices and apartments 1 mile down the same road I live on. Directly across the street from my house, there is an old house sitting on about 3 acres which has been for sale for about 2 years with no activity to my knowledge. Yesterday morning, I awoke to a sign in their front yard indicating that there is a public hearing to move the site's zoning to O-1 (arterial office). I looked at the local zoning codes and the only thing I can find is C-1, which is neighborhood commercial.

Anyone have any experience with businesses moving in across the street from their house? I have a bad gut feeling about it but on the flipside, the property is currently listed for 1.25 million; I bought my house fo 35k (valued roughly at 100k or so at the moment). Considering the high price of the commercial property, any chance my value will go up or is this a killshot on my house's value? Clearly no one can predict what will go in there but I'm really out of grasp at how certain types of buildings affect your house's value. Furthermore, perhaps my value would go up as a commercial property if one were to be built across from me?

Calling all speculators! :-p

Adding an addition onto my house - Questions. Am I going about this right?
Added on : Wednesday February 19th 2014 03:00:11 AM
g: 0 Posted By: NonReturnable
Views: 104 Replies: 4 I own a 1300 sqft 3 bedroom, 1 bath house.

I would like to add an extra bathroom onto the master bedroom.

2 reasons - I am sick of walking downstairs in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. Also, we would like to move to a larger house closer to my job in 3-4 years or so (waiting for wife to finish college and get a secure job). I have been watching the houses for sale in my area for the last several years, and its seems like the houses that sit on the market and never sell have 2 things in common - single bathrooms and tired, old looking kitchens. I've updated my kitchen with tile floors, new appliances and new counter tops.

My house has 2 floors. The second story is not the full width (front to back) as the 1st floor. The only thing upstairs is my office and our master bedroom. These are over top of my living room and kids' room. I would like to add a 2nd floor over the back part of my house (dining room and kitchen).

I originally was going to just do a 15 foot wide dormer, however I have had a General Contractor come out to give me an estimate, and said it would be much easier and cheaper to build the addition to the existing corners of the back of the house, as it would not require as much reinforcing if he used the existing corners. This would not just give me a bathroom, but if we go this route, it would give me enough space for a small 4th bedroom, master bath and walk in closet. This would easily increase the value of my house by 25%.

So, here is where I am at -
I have several GC's coming to give me estimates on framing in the addition, putting a roof on it, and siding the outside. That is all I want. I can do everything on the inside. I have drywalled several other rooms (used to be plaster), I have experience doing electrical work, and I have a friend that is a plumber that said he would help me with adding the drain and water lines. In my county I do not have to get permits. I know this is weird, but they only require permits for anything that is a 3 family building or larger (eg, apartment). I've confirmed this by calling the courthouse and asking.

I went to Menards and priced everything I would need for the bathroom. It came to right around $1000 for a shower stall (I want a 3/4 bath), toilet, sink, plumbing materials, etc. I don't plan on making this super upscale, just using contractor grade materials, as in my area there isn't enough market demand for these items. Drywall and electrical materials will run me around $400. Insulation about $150.

I had an HVAC unit installed 6 years ago, and to be honest, I got kinda screwed. Its not powerful enough. When it gets in the upper 90s, it can only keep the house around 75, and the 2nd floor gets into the 80s, so we use a window AC in the master bedroom. I plan to reroute the return that goes to the 2nd floor to pull from my living room, and the forced air line to a bedroom that currently doesn't have a forced air line. I'll install a 2-ton Mitsubishi mini-split HVAC unit to cool and heat the 2nd floor. These run around $700.

I plan to take these numbers (after I sort through everything and make a nice spreadsheet) along with 3 estimates from different contractors on framing in the addition to my bank, to attempt to refinance my house and get a home equity loan to pay for the addition.

I paid $75k for the house in 2008.
I currently owe $66k on a 30 year mortgage.

Since I purchased the home, I have put about 20k into upgrades (laminate floors, HVAC - it only had electric baseboards when I moved in, split up a massive 15x20 laundry room to make a small utility hallway and a 3rd bedroom, etc)

I would like to get the house re-appraised to take the upgrades I've done into account, however I will have to pay for it because the bank will only do drive-by appraisals, not one where the guy comes in.

Should I pay for the appraisal before or after I talk to the bank?

Basically I want to go to the bank and say:
I owe 66k
The house is worth $X (somewhere in the mid $80s most likely, based on what my neighbor who is a Realtor says)
I want to do the following upgrades that will cost $Y and afterwards the house will be worth $Z.

So, how does this work? How can I get a loan on the equity between what I owe and what the house is worth?

What is the best way to go about this?

I would appreciate any advice that will get me moving in the right diection.

Thanks guys!

TL;DR - Want to build an addition on my house. Talk to me about how to best approach a home equity loan.

Views: 21 Replies: 1 As you may know if you live in NJ, the State authorized casinos to operate online. A list of approved sites are here. Play is restricted to NJ residents, which is achieved by various pieces of software which identify your location by searching your area for known wifi signals.

There are two angles that I see for FWF.

First are sign up bonuses and other promos. Most of the casinos (on the list in the link above) are offering sign up bonuses in the neighborhood of $10. Some of them can be withdrawn immediately. Otherwise a hand or two of blackjack is a good way to meet the wager requirement. There are also other promos, such as reimbursement if you lose a certain amount within your first days of playing. This can be useful if you take an aggressive betting approach, get reimbursement, and then be conservative to recoup your initial layout.

There are also periodically other bonuses. For example, on Feb 17, Borgata is offering a $51 bonus on a $50 deposit, which apparently must be wagered onslots, classic slots or progressive slots.

Second, there may theoretically be opportunities to earn credit card rewards on deposits. Many card issuers are not permitting deposits into online casinos. Others, I imagine, will classify it as a cash advance. This can be a thread where we share what works and what doesn't.

Fort Lauderdale vacation
Added on : Tuesday February 11th 2014 04:00:14 PM
g: 0 Posted By: mochang
Views: 30 Replies: 1 Hey everyone,
My wife and I can't handle the cold anymore and booked a 4 day vacation, flying into Fort Lauderdale. We have never been to Florida and are looking for suggestions for where to base our stay. We haven't gotten the best impressions of Fort Lauderdale from the people we have spoken to. We are willing to stay in an area 2-3 hrs drive from the airport. We are looking for a neighborhood/area that

- Isn't crazy crowded and overrun by tourists
- We are mid-30's so not looking for the spring break crowd
- Don't really like strip malls, and kitschy stuff

We are looking to lie and swim on a beautiful beach, relax most of the day, have some drinks, eat good food and possibly do some sight seeing. Ideally the place would be close to the beach, in a small, cozy, quaint neighborhood.

Any suggestions of neighborhoods and things to do would be appreciated.
Thanks

Starting a Curbside Recycling Business: A Journal
Added on : Tuesday February 11th 2014 02:00:15 PM
g: 17 Posted By: behr
Views: 3569 Replies: 46 I wanted to chronicle the steps I took in fleshing out an idea to a business venture. Maybe it could provide entertainment or even education to others.

In advance I apologize for spelling/grammar errors and I'm pretty sure there will be some parts I don't elaborate on correctly because what I'm saying makes sense in my mind but not to someone unfamiliar with the situation.

I live in a rural FL county where curbside trash pickup is weekly, but if you want to recycle you have to take it to the county facilities, which are nothing more than three dumpsters in front of the city yard. I purchased several 32 gallon trashcans to keep my plastics and cardboard and whenever they are full I take them to the county facilities, rinse and repeat.

Full time job is insurance sales, specifically health. After March 31st open enrollment for Obamacare closes, my work position may shift to part-time, and I would like to find additional income streams.

12/26/13 -. Driving to work, while leaving my subdivision I notice hundreds of cardboard boxes out for the trash man and it makes me sad (140 houses in subdivision, each house has 5 or 6 boxes). Spend the 50 minute commute to work wondering if I could build a business out of curbside recycling.

12/26/13-01/26/14: Have been doing a lot of daydreaming about a part time curbside recycling pickup business, but it has gone nowhere. I am horrible about starting what my wife calls 'two week projects', just what they sound like. Get super into something, drop some cash or time in it, and nothing productive comes from it. (learning to play piano so bought electric keyboard, learning to play guitar so bought guitar, was talking about camping so bought sleeping bags {never used}, MANY more examples). I think this may be a two week project in the making so am leery of doing anything with it past daydreaming.

01/26/14-01/31/14: Decide to take a plunge and start figuring out what I would need to make this thing a reality. Set up a gmail account with the business name as well as a paypal account, vista print account, and facebook page. I start doing google searches to figure out the providers of recycling bins. Look up state and county rules.

01/31/14 - Present: Apply for and am approved for a business American Express, because one of the things I have learned from my research so far is that business spending from a personal account is a big no-no. Apparently 'piercing the corporate veil' can be done easier if you as an individual and the company spend from the same account. I get an AMEX first because all the business checking and savings accounts I have looked into require paperwork from the state showing the status of my registered LLC, which I do not yet have.

Complete and mail paperwork for the state. Very simple, two pages and a check for $130 (from personal account, no other way to pay it). ($125 file fee and $5 for a copy of the aforementioned status letter)

Develop a 7 question survey on survey monkey (free account currently) to gauge interest in a curbside recycling program.

Complete a sample postcard on VistaPrint. I will use the postcard to direct folks to 4 different ways to take the survey (direct to survey monkey, link on facebook to survey monkey, email for electronic copy, or mail to a po box for a hard copy.) I find a coupon code on FW for $5 off an order so the $3 sample order of postcards is free.

Receive sample postcards. Review them and change some wording, currently they look good.

Signed up for a PO Box, since at this point I would rather direct mail to that instead of home address. I know it would be very easy to find the real address from searching by the LLC name but only if folks take that step. 3 months costs $26.

Next two weeks: Upgrade survey monkey account. Currently only 100 responses are allowed on the free version. Upgrading for one month will cost $24 but will allow unlimited responses for my survey.

Order 500 postcards from VistaPrint (mentioned above) and distribute to selected neighborhoods (437 houses currently. one is 140 households, one is 130, there are several groupings of 10-12 duplexes, and several straight dead end streets that would be ideal for collection).

Purchase $50 WalMart Gift Card (this will be mentioned on the survey as a prize for one participant).

Run the survey for several weeks and then cancel the survey monkey. At this point I will decide whether or not the business is viable and move on from there.

FUTURE: What would collection look like? What would I collect with? How many bins would I order? What would pricing look like? Would I make any money? These and many more questions are completely unanswered, but for me currently there is a lot that would be spinning my wheels worrying about until I get a solid response from the survey. I am hoping for 20% response which would give me about 100 answers. No idea if that is realistic response rate or not.

Again I apologize for the fragmented and possibly incoherent setup of this post, but just thought it would be good to get this stuff down. Maybe I will make some mistakes people can learn from, and maybe I can give a little inspiration to someone on the site I am so often inspired by (but more often than not just waste my money on).

UPDATE as of 2/11/14: Got a domain that had free email so replace all mentions of the gmail account (facebook page, the survey, etc) with the new domain name branded emails.

Ordered the final surveys (again, 500 postcards to be distributed door to door [most likely IN peoples' door]).

Current expenses up to $242.46. (includes state LLC filing fee, postcards, an address stamp in case alot of folks want paper surveys, 1yr webhosting, and 3 months PO BOX rental)

Once the surveys arrive I will distribute them and wait several weeks for my 2 responses to pour in

Vacant house next door: any opportunity?
Added on : Friday February 07th 2014 06:00:15 AM
g: 0 Posted By: bluegreenturtle
Views: 197 Replies: 5 We bought our house 10 years ago and had a very nice and cool neighbor next door who had lived there for decades and fixed his house up nicely, but about a year after we moved in, he decided to sell and move elsewhere. The house sold for $275,000 to a couple from CA. About 3 years ago they got into a disagreement and walked away from the house - one to another state and the other disappearing. I talked to one of them and she said that indeed they were walking away and leaving any equity they had. The house has been vacant ever since. About a year ago, finally somebody from the bank showed up and drilled out the locks and about once a month in the summer somebody mows the lawn and trims a little. I talked to the lock guy and he said that the mortgage was at least 3 years in arrears and so it was well past the point of forclosure. But there's been nothing - it's just vacant, and in fact the front door has no latch or locks on it. I went over there the other day and it's wide open - leaves in the living room from the door being open, bathrooms have been winterized but otherwise it's just empty. Absolutely no activity from anybody, the bank, whatever, since the locks got taken out - but the house is still in good shape. Market value is probably about $350,000, but they seem to have forgotten about this house. Is there anyway to buy it super cheap? There's no contact info anywhere. FOr the most part all of us neighbors have treated it respectfully - no squatters, nobody stealing stuff, the crazy car guy with 30 cars in his yard parked one in front of the house which is probably a good thing. Electricity is still on, which boggles the mind.

Don't expect there's anything I can do but thought I would type all this out because I think about it sometimes.

Neighbor's leak has caused property damage - difficulty getting resolution
Added on : Wednesday January 29th 2014 09:00:10 AM
g: 0 Posted By: udonoogen
Views: 133 Replies: 1 Hello Fatwallet!

I thought I might be able to get some advice on how to resolve this issue - which has been a lot more difficult to do than I originally thought.

The Story:
- I have a detached garage in my townhome complex. Above my detached garage, there is another unit owned by another neighbor, who rents it out via a property management company. His porch is directly above a portion of the garage.
- I live in Southern California. It's usually sunny but occasionally it really pours here.
- In Spring-ish 2013, it rained pretty heavily and caused the drywall in my built-in cabinets to collapse. Water damage turned into mold.
- I began the process of contacting the HOA, which in turn contacted the other owner. No response. It's not a big deal, since it's my detached garage, so it fell through the cracks with other life priorities (e.g. new baby).
- It rained again in September/October last year and water was draining out of my cabinet again. I contacted the owner's property management company and they sent out a contractor to do an estimate. I contacted them persistently since then and they gave me various excuses. They finally told me a couple weeks ago that the owner had postponed the repair due to lack of funds.
- I contacted my insurance agent and she said my homeowner's couldn't do much because they can't repair the source of the leak. The HOA claims they are only responsible for the roof (not the porch).
- I filed a Better Business Bureau complaint against the property management company yesterday and emailed their customer service, copying my HOA representative. Short of that, I'm running out of options to get this fixed (short of paying for his porch repair, myself).

Do y'all have any suggestions? I have a group legal plan through work but I understand I'll still have to pay for a portion of the attorney's fees. If I go to small claims court, do I get my attorney's fees back? If I call my homeowner's insurance (Mercury), would they fight for this on my behalf, since it is causing damage to my property? I am concerned about the black mold and (later on) resale value of this townhome when our family decides to move.

Thanks in advance!

Got caught in a parking scam - got letter from a debt collector
Added on : Friday January 24th 2014 10:00:10 PM

Views: 79 Replies: 0 Hey all, I was hoping I could get some advice.

I parked at a private parking lot in Denver in August. Paid cash in one of those old style boxes with the slots - no receipt or electronic record. I came back later that night, and there was a "ticket" on my window for non payment - from a private company, not the city. Some of the neighbors approached me, and told me about a scam the lot owners were pulling where they wrote tickets, and used them as "evidence" to tow the cars, with their own tow company of course. It turns out the city busted them a few years ago. So I ignored the ticket, and haven't parked in the lot since.

Today I get a letter (dated 1/17) from a collection company, saying that STOP N PARK has assigned my debt to them, and I owe $57. They have my correct name, address, and plate number. I haven't gotten any alerts from CK or Credit Sesame, and my FICO is good, according to my Discover and Barclays statements from a few days ago.

I don't mind taking my lumps and paying the 57 bucks, but will they report it to the bureaus if I pay the debt collector directly? And if I send an "I dispute, please validate" letter, does the handwritten, private ticket count for debt validation, even though it wasn't valid in the first place?

Just trying to save my credit, thanks for all your help.

Views: 242 Replies: 0 So here's some backstory: I'm a member of a program called Ipsy. It's a subscription box, kind of like Birchbox or GLOSSYBOX,run by makeup gurus from Youtube. For $10 a month I get a makeup bag containing various makeup samples tailored to my specific interests. Each month they have 12 or so companies that provide the samples. You get 5 or 6 products, some sample and some full size. At the end of the month, they release member-exclusive promo codes for all of the companies that participated in the bag - even if it wasn't one that gave you a product personally.

I started this thread to share the promo codes I get each month. Turns out they work for non-members as well. Usually they don't have a limit and can end up being a decent value. Not all of the companies are famously high-end or anything, but they've been known to get a kickstart after being featured by Ipsy. There are usually a few great deals mixed within each month. I have yet to get a bag that I dislike.

Without further digression, here's the list for January. I have the link going to the product they sent out, but the codes are not item-specific. I will update the list as they expire and add more codes as I receive them. I starred the stores that are most well-known

from Publishers Weekly
Convicted serial bank robber Cooper steals the show in the road to redemption genre for 2009 with this gripping narrative about his slide from petty theft to hostage-taking bank heists. Shot down mid-robbery, captured and sentenced in 1982 to 99 years, the author takes readers into the prison with grotesque scenes of predators and brutality. In prison, Cooper reflects on the double life that led to his incarceration; he worked for a Christian college, but also robbed banks to medicate the loss of his wife. Finding freedom, even in lock down, and forgiveness for his crimes, including his disregard for God and his stepson, becomes a quest that will have readers hanging on till the end of this surprisingly well-narrated book. The power of God's love and of prayer for enemies leads to the transformation of an entire cell block from heinous rape and sex games to a place of peace and love of neighbor. This new voice will be a runaway favorite for fans of the redemption narrative. (Aug.)

The Dynacraft Tony Hawk 16 inch BMX Bike - Boys Drop is a 16 inch BMX styled frame bike with steel rims, an alloy clamp seat, coaster brakes, plus front and rear U brakes with alloy levers, circular chain guard and training wheels. The Dynacraft Tony Hawk 16 inch BMX Bike - Boys Drop also comes with a lifetime warranty on the frame, fork and training wheels.

Attachment four is a TRU coupon 15% off one regularly priced item or 20% off clearance items which should bring your final price down to $31.20, assuming you find one unassembled in the box.

TRU adds a $10 charge for assembly, so for an assembled one they might hit you for $39.20 (plus tax where applicable). I got one assembled at the lower price because the training wheel bracket was bent, so they do have some discretion with pricing, as always YMMV. Go get 'em!

qualifying for mortage with low income but lots of cash
Added on : Tuesday January 14th 2014 01:00:13 PM
g: 0 Posted By: creamade
Views: 184 Replies: 3 long time reader, first time poster. I hope you wise folks can help advise with my situation!
I am recently married and we are looking to buy a home by mid-2015, earlier if possible. We are in a high COLA in the Northeast where home prices we are looking at are in the 600-700k + range. While these homes still will need more money for renovating, this is a hot neighborhood due to excellent school district. We only want to buy once, buy right, and buy before prices get too high.
The gist is, I am a w2 employee grossing $35k annually. Short 2 year credit history, scores about 720. My wife grosses $55k, excellent 10+ year credit history.
She has a 401k, I have a Roth IRA. We have combined cash assets of $120k+, and currently do not pay rent (live with parents). Only expense other than the usual cellphone/groceries is a car lease.
In addition to my income, I also pick up a lot of odd jobs, tips, eBay/craigslist flips, etc. and earn an additional $30k cash a year.

The concern is, although we have enough to put 20% downpayment, we would still need to borrow at least $500k. We fear that our combined income will not qualify us for this amount at a good rate!
What are some options / obstacles we should consider?
-Do I pay the tax on the extra cash earned under the tables, as a 1099? However, research seems to show that a) a 2-year history of 1099 is needed, and b) alternate sources of income don't count anyways.
-Do we put more money down and borrow less? How much more? 25% is probably pushing our comfort limit assuming a $600k home. (And honestly, a $600k home here is in ugly condition.) This will be presumably difficult to still secure a good loan at a good rate, not to mention cough up all our savings. I think we would still need to keep at least a few months worth of Emergency funds, right?
-Find a lender that will accept my lower income, but pay more in points / higher rate?? Refi later on? We are not very comfortable with this option, as it is possible these lenders/banks may be shady and more expensive in the long run.
-Get our parents to co-sign?
- ???

FEE has yet another new product to offer, absolutely free, as part of the Blinking Lights Project. FEE president Lawrence Reed's new book Are We Good Enough for Liberty? is now available for order in quantities of 1, 5, 10, 15, or 20 for absolutely free. We only ask that you read it and share it with your friends, neighbors, family members, and fellow students. We want to give this book as wide a distribution as possible and you can help us with that task.

Reed's book establishes the indispensable connection between liberty and character and explains why, throughout history, "no people who lost their character kept their liberty." It is a book of stories and lessons from the past and from across the world. It instructs as well, noting that "If you do not govern yourself, you will be governed." These are lessons which FEE places in all of its educational programs: in the Freeman, the summer seminars, our online resources, and now distilled down to one book for you to take.

Water Damage from a Vacant Neighboring Condo Unit

Views: 116 Replies: 0 Greetings, FWF:

Quick scenario, my friend encountered this evening:
- Lives in a 2-story condo building (he is renting), with units on both the first and second floor
- Neighbor's 2nd story vacant condo had a pipe burst, and water gushed into the first floor (garage area of friend)
- Water department was called to turn off water to the vacant unit

At this point, it isn't entirely clear the extent of the damage.

Now, the question is which insurance covers this situation for damage to:
A. Friend's personal belongings
B. Damage to friend's unit (structure)
C. Cleanup

1. Friend's renter's insurance
2. Friend's landlord's home owner's insurance
3. Vacant condo's home owner's insurance
4. HOA insurance

Thanks for your input.

Buying a rental house targeted at shorter-term tenants
Added on : Monday January 06th 2014 06:00:15 AM
g: 0 Posted By: Bagofchips
Views: 0 Replies: 0 Here's an idea I'm toying with. Where I live (suburbs, upscale, Northern California)there is little inventory for housing (be it rental or purchase). This in turns leads to more people wanting to remodel their homes, but those who do so often have the challenge of where to live short-termduring a move-out remodel.

The cash flow on homes purchased for rental usually stinks, but am thinking MIGHT be able to make something work with a rental targeted at shorter-term occupancy. Rental terms would be front-loaded with a higher rate and the rate would decline over time (to a still-above-market rateat month-to-month). Where I am there is no rent control. Shorter-term tenants also include the recently-relocated (from outside the area or urban flight families) who are house hunting.

The ideal home for such a situation would have these qualities:

Generousgarage for storage
One level for easier move-in / out
Convenient location
Finishes / fixtures able to withstand more wear & tear

Things that ordinarily might hinderproperty value which could matter lessto shorter-termtenants (to an extent):

Road noise
Appearance of neighboring properties, house itself, grounds
Interior condition

So basically, I'm thinking there might be a way to cater to shorter-term credit-worthy tenants paying above-market rent in a property that is fundamentallylower cost / sq ft. Clearly Iwould need to manage vacancy. I can't get to the oft-advised1% rent threshold, though I will be able to self-manage given my proximity to it. Rent could cover mortgage and property taxes and minimal maintenance like landscaping. But let's say not routine repairs, insurance, home warranty...

4.1 out of 5 stars (42 customer reviews)

The Soup and Bread Cookbookaims to explore the social role of soup through a collection of terrific, affordable recipes from food activists, chefs, and others. This quirky exploration of the cultural history of soup as a tool for both building community and fostering social justice is the result of a brainstorm: eating your way through a pot of soup day after day can get boring why not get together and swap some with friends? Now neighbors across the country are getting together regularly for home-based "soup swaps." In Chicago, the arts collective InCUBATE uses soup as a microfunding tool. And of course, soup can be a political statement: the radical volunteers of Food Not Bombs have been providing free vegetarian soup to the hungry as a protest against war and social injustice since 1980. These are just a few examples of the stories Bayne wraps around a collection of delicious, accessible, and tested soup recipes.

1st mortgage with PNC bank
balance $55,472
payment $742.74 (including tax/insurance)

2nd with Huntington bank
balance $33,311.51
payment 359.58

Totals
owe 88,784.12
payments 1,102.32

house is a duplex, built in 1922 in Ohio.
the county for tax purposes had valued the house for $97,800 before the market collapse, then the value dropped to $78,000. In 2012 the county raised it back to $98,700

i would like to move, my neighborhood has declined, and quite frankly, I don't like where I live. I could have a nicer apartment for half of what I pay now.

Currently, i bring home JUST enough to pay the mortgages and other debts (minimum payments) to be one of the working poor. Just barely enough left after bills for food & gas. Anything extra, or unexpected ends up on a credit card.

i was approached by PNC and told my mortgage was eligible for a HARP refinance, since the loan was owned my Freddie Mack. When they ran the numbers, I was told if I paid close to $700 up front, I could reduce my interest rate and lower my monthly payment by about $100. Since I didn't have $700 laying around! and it would take 7 months to even break even, I did not go further with it.

i approached Huntington about refinancing my loan with them. It has an interest rate of 10% and I had to have my mother co-sign for it. I was hoping to get her name off, and possibly a lower rate. Huntington surprised me, by telling me I may be able to get one new mortgage from them, that payed off both of my loans, put it all in my name alone, and would save me $100-$300 per month depending on the interest rate.

Huntington paid for an appraisal, and it came back at $60,000.
Huntington isn't offering to do anything for me now.

from what I've read, I'm not eligible for any of the modification programs because Huntington isn't a participating bank of HAMP, and because I have a co-signer.

so do I have any options?

Short sale: doubtful Huntington would agree to take what little money was left after PNC took their money. Seems they'd rather go after my retired mother.

Walk Away/Foreclosure: ruin my credit, Huntington still pursue me; ruin my mothers credit and have her pursued also.

4.2 out of 5 stars (73 customer reviews)

The red warning light on her car dashboard drove Lainie Davis to seek help in the tiny town of Last Chance, New Mexico. But as she encounters the people who make Last Chance their home, it's her heart that is flashing bright red warning lights. These people are entirely too nice, too accommodating, and too interested in her personal life for Lainie's comfort--especially since she's on the run and hoping to slip away unnoticed.

Yet in spite of herself, Lainie finds that she is increasingly drawn in to the dramas of small town life. An old church lady who always has room for a stranger. A handsome bartender with a secret life. A single mom running her diner and worrying over her teenage son. Could Lainie actually make a life in this little hick town? Or will the past catch up to her even here in the middle of nowhere?

Aveeno baby products, Target retail only, buy 3 get $5 Gift Card

Buy 3 select AveenoBaby products, get a $5 gift card.
According to the store shelf tag, this promotionends1-4-2014.
If the Target near you doesn't have this promotion, you may have to go to another Target. The Target near me in Los Angeles County didn't have this promotion. But a Target in neighboring Orange County (just another mile away), did.

If you have a Red Card, you will save 5%. Unfortunately the store wide 10% off is coming to an end in a few minutes (Pacific Time zone).

Depending on the exact Aveeno product you want, you will likely save money. Be sure to check Target online, Amazon, and WalMartfor price comparison. Historically, I have noticed that Target's retail stores always had better price. WalMart came very close. Amazon couldn't compare (too expensive). Unfortunatley, Costco doesn't carry Aveeno baby products with regularity, so its hit/miss.

12-22-2013 pricing of Aveeno baby Gentle Conditioning Baby Shampoo, 12oz:
Target (retail) $4.99 ($4.74 w/ Red Card 5% discount)

HOA Fence Rules vs Builder
Added on : Wednesday December 18th 2013 01:00:08 AM
g: 0 Posted By: iceman1713
Views: 27 Replies: 0 I am currently having a house built that I am due to close on in approximately 2 weeks.
I paid to have a fence built by the builder/contractor (who builds all houses in the neighborhood) which was erected yesterday. I immediately noticed that the dimensions were incorrect and that it was in breach of regular HOA requirements whichstate it can only come off the back corner of the property by 7 feet. I know the builder got permission to come off 8 feet, but the fence now comes off close to 21 feet.
Obviously this gives me a lot more back garden, so I am reluctant to say anything to the builder.
Once I have moved into the property and signed on the dotted line, can the HOA come back and tell me to change it? Or am I ok once I have moved in because that was "how I bought the house" and it was supposed to be clear from HOA breaches etc? The HOA is currently operated by a company and has not been passed over to residents as yet.
To raise the issue or cross fingers and hope? That is the question!
Please advise thanks

Possible legal issue regarding my dog.
Added on : Tuesday December 17th 2013 02:00:34 AM

Views: 19 Replies: 0 My dog often plays with the dog next door, yesterday my dog bolts for the neighbor's in the morning. The other neighbor across the street has his poodle over there and he's talking to the owner in his driveway. I'm walking towards them with the leash in my hand and the owner across the street goes down like a ton of bricks. I couldn't see what happened but my dog or the neighbors dog knocked him down apparently. He sat there for a couple minutes, clearly hurt, said he felt nauseous. We helped him up and he limped home. This guy is hardly the picture of health, he's early 50s and overweight, smokes, looks like hell. And these two dogs aren't Great Danes, my dog and neighbors dog are about 40lbs. I don't believe there is a leash law in the county I'm in.

Late in the day, my neighbors wife (not wife of hurt guy) is talking to my 90 year old father who lives with me and says the guy tore up knee ligaments and is going to need surgery. She said something about this guy suing Home Depot at some point and some other history of litigation, my dad's 90 and hears about 50% of what's said. Fact are these, man falls on neighbors driveway from dogs rough housing. No way to tell if it was my dog or other dog that knocked him down. My plan is to ask how he's doing if I see him outside but otherwise ignore until I'm named in a lawsuit. I figure if anybody has a problem it's my neighbor since it happened on his driveway.

Do I have anything to worry about?
Get off my lawn (snow edition)

Views: 178 Replies: 10 Would like to get the advice from the community regarding my situation. It seems that I have the best yard in the neighborhood for sledding. Every time we have any snow it inevitably happens: I'll look out and there is kids running up in down in my yard with sleds. Now I have asked them to leave before and its not always the same group of kids (our neighborhood has a lot of kids). Also I don't think me asking them not to or yelling at them make's much of a difference as I can't be home all the time to monitor the situation.

My questions are thus:
1) What am I potentially exposing myself to liability wise if this continues and
2) How do I prevent this from happening in the first place

If it turns out that 1) I don't have anything to worry about then I'll just leave well enough alone. If not I'd be interested in some answers to # 2.

Possible options:
1) Become that "guy" who yells "get off my lawn!" all the time
2) Build a tall fence (costly - not ideal)
3) Outdoor signs (wife won't approve)
4) Some other FWF idea

If there is a post related to this please point me in that direction and I'll be sure to check it out. Thanks

How to force bank to sell a house?
Added on : Wednesday December 11th 2013 11:00:08 AM
g: 0 Posted By: SwingNinja
Views: 106 Replies: 2 Hi,
There's a house a couple of doors down from where I live that has been empty for more than a couple of years now. They put a "for sale" sign for a year when the housing market was really bad and nobody bought it. Now they took off the sign. One of my neighbor told me that the house is going to be kept empty like that to control the market, to keep the house prices down in the neighborhood. Does anybody have similar experience and can give some advice? I'd like to sell my house some day and not losing money from it.

Thanks.

Condo Tub Drain Leaking Damage To Neighbor's Ceiling
Added on : Saturday November 30th 2013 09:00:21 AM
g: 0 Posted By: cdddazz
Views: 121 Replies: 1 I own a second story condo, there are no units above me. The unit below mine reported a leak in ceiling, above their tub, below my drain shower tub. I don't think HOA would play a role here as this is not a common element, and pipe is a drain attached o my tub. To replace, I will need to hire a plumber to cut through the drywall in the unit beneath me and fix the leak. I'm not sure what my insurance will cover yet since I won't be able to speak with an adjuster until Monday. My deductible is $500, but would obviously rather not go through insurance unless needed.

Am I responsible for repairing the leaking pipe or is this the neighbors responsibility?
If I am responsible for the above then am I also responsible for repairing and painting the neighbors ceiling as the plumber would need to make a hole to access leaking pipe.
Typically would my condo insurance cover any of this or would it fall on the neighbors insurance?

Views: 230 Replies: 0 Stop & Shop Gift Card Gas DealStop & Shop will have a Gift Card Gas Rewards Deal where you can earn 4x Gas Rewards on all Gift Card Purchases. The normal rewards are 100 points for $0.10 so, for this reward, you will get $0.40 ($0.10 x 4) for every $100 you spend in gift card purchases which you can use on up to 35 gallons of gas.This turns into a money maker since you are buying the gift cards and using them as you would cash. The only variables will be buying a Visa, Mastercard or American Express which will have an activation fee. There is no activation fee for store cards.Also, the amount you make on your gift card purcahse will depend on how much you fill up at the gas station. Here is a breakdown of the different Gift Card purchases you can make with different amounts you can make based on how much you filled up. Some gas stations will allow you to fill up 2 cars or use gas containers to get the remainder of gas at the discounted price. Be sure to check with your gas station.Buying $100 Gift Cards:

Get $0.40 off per gallon for 35 gallons of gas = $14
Get $0.40 off per gallon for 30 gallons of gas = $12
Get $0.40 off per gallon for 25 gallons of gas = $10
Get $0.40 off per gallon for 20 gallons of gas = $8
Get $0.40 off per gallon for 15 gallons of gas = $6

Buying $200 in Gift Cards:

Get $0.80 off per gallon for 35 gallons of gas = $28
Get $0.80 off per gallon for 30 gallons of gas = $24
Get $0.80 off per gallon for 25 gallons of gas = $20
Get $0.80 off per gallon for 20 gallons of gas = $16
Get $0.80 off per gallon for 15 gallons of gas = $12

Buying $300 in Gift Cards:

Get $1.20 off per gallon for 35 gallons of gas = $42
Get $1.20 off per gallon for 30 gallons of gas = $36
Get $1.20 off per gallon for 25 gallons of gas = $30
Get $1.20 off per gallon for 20 gallons of gas = $24
Get $1.20 off per gallon for 15 gallons of gas = $18

Buying $400 in Gift Cards:

Get $1.60 off per gallon for 35 gallons of gas = $56
Get $1.60 off per gallon for 30 gallons of gas = $48
Get $1.60 off per gallon for 25 gallons of gas = $40
Get $1.60 off per gallon for 20 gallons of gas = $32
Get $1.60 off per gallon for 15 gallons of gas = $24

Buying $500 in Gift Cards:

Get $2.00 off per gallon for 35 gallons of gas = $70
Get $2.00 off per gallon for 30 gallons of gas = $60
Get $2.00 off per gallon for 25 gallons of gas = $50
Get $2.00 off per gallon for 20 gallons of gas = 40
Get $2.00 off per gallon for 15 gallons of gas = $30

Here are some examples of deals you can do:Buy $100 Store Gift Cards (requires no activation fees)
Pay: $100.00
Get $0.40 off per gallon of gas up to 35
Money Maker of $14 if you fill up with 35 gallons
(see Buying $100.00 Gift Cards above for the different amounts)Buy $100 Visa, MasterCard or Amex
Activation Fee $4.95 $5.95
Pay as low as $104.95
Get $0.40 off per gallon of gas up to 35 gallons
Money Maker of $9.05 ($14 $4.95 activation fee) if you fill up with 35 gallons
(see Buying $100.00 Gift Cards above for the different amounts)Buy $500 Store Gift Cards (requires no activation fees)
Pay: $500.00
Get $2.00 off per gallon of gas up to 35 gallons
Money Maker of $70 if you fill up with 35 gallons
(see Buying $500.00 Gift Cards above for the different amounts)Buy $500 Visa, MasterCard or Amex
Activation Fee $8.95 (average amount for higher value cards)
Pay as low as $508.95
Get $2.00 off per gallon of gas up to 35 gallons
Money Maker of $61.05 ($70 $8.95 activation fee) if you fill up with 35 gallons
(see Buying $500.00 Gift Cards above for the different amounts)Before you do these gift card deals, be sure to check to see if there is aparticipating Shell station near you. And, check their prices to be sure the savings per gallon is still a good deal in case your Shell prices are higher than other gas stations in your neighborhood.Remember, although you are paying money out of pocket for the gift card, you would be using this gift card as if you were using cash on things you would have purchased anyway, so this savings at the gas station is all extra savings! Be sure to keep your eye out for Gift Card Catalina Deals as well. These usually pop up as the holiday season gets closer and are my favorite deals.

sellers agent doesnt want to show me the property..what are my options?
Added on : Monday November 18th 2013 02:00:07 PM
g: 0 Posted By: heehaa
Views: 257 Replies: 6 i went to a Open house in my neighborhood about 2 weeks ago. I stopped at the door hoping that i would be greeted by the broker. There were a few women in a circle talking right in front of me. Some of them glanced at me and then went right back to business. I stood their somewhat embarrassingly looking around trying to locate the listing agent. Then after more than a min or so , i heard one of the ladies from the group that stood in front of me " feel free to walk around ..information is in the kitchen" with a grin. She turned out to be the listing agent and this was the only interaction we had. I felt unwelcome.( ? extra-sensitive..... I was not born in this country, have an accent and am brown) This is a relatively high end neighborhood. I managed to look at the property all by myself.

I brushed this experience off thinking that this person may have had a bad day and decided to call the company for a second look. I was told that the broker will give me a call. I received a call later but the identified herself with a different name than the listing agent. I assumed that she might be working for the listing broker. She again sounded very cold. She asked me if I knew what the asking price was ( I guess I didnt sound like someone with an excellent credit history). I asked her why she would ask that question and asked her if I needed to commit to asking price before she would show me the house.? She said she will call back to schedule the showing. She called back an hour later with meeting day/time. When I told her that the suggested day and time workedfor me, she said she will call back to confirm. She is suggesting day and time ...and needs to confirm!!
I received a call 2 hours later. She tells me that she cant show the property on the day that she had suggested and that they actually had received an offer already...she subsequently clarifies that the offer is verbal. she then offers to show me other properties... As you can see ..this sounds very strange. Brokers accept offer and show properties until the deal goes through (money flows).

it seemed to me that this person was playing a foul game against the seller -my neighbor...i actually live 2 blocks away from this property..i had never met the seller before though.. This weekend I stopped by this property knocked on the door and told the seller the story. They said they were not happy with the agent and were thinking about dropping her . When i gave them the name of the person who I talked to over the phone. they told me that that person was actually not their agent. She was a buyer's representative from the same brokerage whose client actually had made a verbal offer. You guessed it right. ...very hard to believe!

I made an offer directly to the seller.

My question you learned men and women is ....what are my legal options here? Which rights were infringed ?
What are the seller's options? Can he get out of the contract here with the listing agent.?

thanks very much for reading this long story!
btw, I did talk to an attorney. He was shocked and thinks that the agent who I spke over the phone and wouldnt show me the property was trying to protect her commission that she would potentially get from her client. He said he will do more research.

Neighbor crashed into my tree
Added on : Friday November 15th 2013 06:00:06 PM
g: 0 Posted By: CycloneFW
Views: 145 Replies: 0 Need some advice on how to proceed. Neighbor looked down, coasted towards me and the dog, looked up, panicked, and took out the mailbox, wooden fence, and crashed head on to a tree that snapped/splintered and cracked/splintered two of five major trunks, with lesser damages to a third major trunk (it's one of those where it's not a single trunk making up base of the tree). Neighbor has USAA auto insurance and in North Carolina, property damage is required coverage. Got a police report and will call the insurance company tomorrow.

Having never dealt before with an auto policy to cover damage to something other than another automobile, I do not know how to proceed from there. Any thoughts and advice is greatly appreciated.

BTW, neither myself or the dog are injured (though dog is still shaking a couple hours later) and the driver only has minor injuries.

Need advice on renting out my primary home (Updated)
Added on : Tuesday November 12th 2013 04:00:12 PM
g: -1 Posted By: nasheedb
Views: 2820 Replies: 26 I'm the guy who is moving to Switzerland (http://www.fullofdeals.com/forums/finance/1300987). I am looking for some advice on renting out my primary home. Here are the details:

-Purchased the house in August of 2009 for $165,000 and I received the $8,000 credit, essentially bringing my purchase price down to $157,000
-Current value of the house is around $200,000
-It is in a cookie cutter neighborhood, and it is among the largest and most expensive in the neighborhood.
-I have a HEL at 3.99% fixed, 83 months left on the loan. Current balance $87,xxx

Monthly expenses (current):
$1214 - HEL payment
$424 - property tax (pay in full at the end of the year, this is the yearly cost /12. It will also be higher next year due to no longer being owner occupied)
$96 - insurance (pay in full, yearly cost /12)
$54 - HOA (pay in full, yearly cost /12)
Total: $1788

Property management fee will be 7% on top of this. I would need to charge at least $1925/month for rent just to break-even from a cashflow perspective, and that's before I take maintenance/repairs and vacancies into consideration.

I've had a realtor from the property management company advertise the house on MLS for $2000/month for the past 4 weeks. I've had 3 showings so far, which the realtor says is very low. When we set the $2000/month price, the realtor did a market analysis and said that price was fine. A week ago, a house that's very close to mine came on the market for rent at $1800 a month. My house is a little nicer on the inside, I have tons of landscaping work, I allow for pets on a case-by-case basis, I'm including all appliances, so I am adding a little bit of value compared to the other house, but probably not much. The realtor wants me to drop the price to $1800 a month. That would leave me in a pretty bad position from a cashflow perspective. I really don't want to go this low.

I'd like to try adding a bonus for the renter's realtor. Normally they get half a month's rent as commission. What if I were to increase this by say $500? That's 50% more than what they would get normally. Is this worth a try? Any advice is appreciated. I have to move by the end of December, but the sooner I move, the better.

I've also tried advertising the house on Craigslist for $1800 a month, but I haven't had any interest. A refinance is basically not an option, I don't want to deal with the headache of refinancing when I'm moving.

In this unique and wonderfully thorough handbook, a military wife and mom shares practical advice about preparing and dealing with deployment of a loved one. Carol Vandesteeg helps families learn what to expect as they prepare for deployment, how to communicate while separated, helping children through the separation, and reuniting at the end of the tour of duty. When Duty Calls also addresses the subject that's so painful to face: the possibility that the loved one may not return.

Adventures of an Air Force Wife [Kindle Edition]
http://www.amazon.com/Adventures-Force-Wife-Becky-Corwin-Adams-ebook/dp/B00EHKX5A6

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a military wife? Did you know that young military families often struggle to survive on military pay?
Read the book to learn more about the adventures and struggles of an 18 year old Air Force wife. If being a young military wife wasn't difficult enough, add a baby to the family.
The adventures begin at Chanute Air Force Base in Rantoul, Illinois where the family of three lived in their first apartment. An overflowing bathtub, a missing hamster, and some too close neighbors added to the mayhem.
To make life even more exciting, the young family was forced to leave their "comfort zone" in the midwest and relocate to cold, snowy Minot, North Dakota. Can you imagine moving 1,400 miles from home in the middle of winter at tender age of 18? Arriving in a far off northern tier state with no home, no furniture, and not much money presented many unique challenges.

Startup and Real Estate Crowdfunding Sites
Added on : Friday November 08th 2013 07:00:15 AM
g: 0 Posted By: Kanosh
Views: 85 Replies: 0 Being an occasional investor on Lendingclub and Prosper, I've followed the proliferation of crowdfunding sites with interest. In many ways these sites are the big brother to Lending club. Many are for accredited investors only (they'll take your word that you meet the qualifications for accreditation, no one verifies this). They enable you to invest in small companies already running, in need of expansion capital. I've held off from investing in these (with one exception, see below) because I don't feel I have enough knowledge to tell what is a reasonable startup valuation and I'm not too familiar with all the legal documents one must review before investing. Does anyone here have experience investing in startups using one of these platforms, or otherwise?

CircleUpspecializes in brick and mortar food, beverage, and natural product companies. Most of the companies have some environmental or "all natural" angle. Most of the companies are currently selling products which can be found at Whole Foods, Starbucks, or other places. Mostly equity financing, but sometimes offer note as well. You can ask the founders questions through the site. Investments usually begin at $5000 or $10,000.

Fundriseis a platform for investing in urban real estate projects. Due to the founders taking doing extensive research in the law, they have offered certain investments to anyone, for as low as $100. (These investments are for residents of Washington DC or Virginia only, see articles here for how this works or here for a more cautionary look from the Washington Post). In several cases, they use the "crowdfunded by small local investors" angle to convince local governments to rezone an area or to redevelop a previously government-owned property. This is a pretty cool end run around the NIMBY mentality and a lets people have a stake in a specific property in their neighborhood.

Ibankers is a site for accredited investors to directly fund various companies. I haven't investigated it much, but it seems similar to CircleUp although with the the environmental angle.

I put a small amount into Fundrise. I'm aware of the fees and risk; frankly, I like the concept and like investing in a specific property I'm personally familiar with, rather than, say, a REIT with many properties and high administrative costs. Anyone else tried their hand at crowdfunding?

using "tenancy at will" to push tenants around
Added on : Tuesday November 05th 2013 10:00:07 AM
g: 0 Posted By: Gauss44
Views: 216 Replies: 6 So, I live in Boston and have noticed an interesting situation. A friend of mine rents from a company that only allows tenancy at will after the first year (no leases). The rental company primarily rents to students and poor people (who can't afford high rent), and generally has very reasonably priced rental apartments in good neighborhoods.

But here's the deal, a bunch of people (my friend and his neighbors) complain that the rental company and landlord use the lack of protections associated with "tenancy at will" to do whatever they want without notifying tenants. If a tenant complains, they can move, it's been said. Tenants say, management/landlorddoesn't provide any notice when they want to enter the apartment or do construction on adjacent units. They complain that maintenance, exterminators, etc. just barge right in to their apartments unannounced. I was over at my friends house a couple days ago and we were interrupted by a very loud construction noise (possibly sawing through brick or metal) that left my ears physically hurting for a couple hours. No one had notified the tenant of construction and this took us by surprise. I was told that this rental company threatens to evict or raise the rent on anyone that complains. So, I guess management can do whatever they want?

While it would seem logical to just move in that sort of a situation, the problem is that some people can't afford to live elsewhere right away. Rental prices are very high. There's a long waiting list for, I believe all types of, low-income housing. In this city, many people can't or don't drive which would make the suburbs a difficult place to live. Plus people can get busy with classes or projects at work and might not be able to just take time off to move immediately either. (Sure people can move but not right away.)

From a landlord's pov, this might be a great place to make money if you don't mind pushing around tenants. On that note, this could also make an interesting discussion about how landlords could save money by limiting tenants rights. Does anyone have any tips for a tenant who wants tor remain in these cheap dwellings but also wants to reduce some of the intrusions (noise and barging in)?

How to get the maximum out of an auto insurance claim

Views: 100 Replies: 1 hi, my car was parked on the street in front of the house and my neighbor backed into it while reversing his car from the garage. he knocked on my door and was honest about it. we exchanged insurance information and i contacted his insurance company and they sent an adjuster out to look at it and gave an estimate for $2985. I took my car to an manufacturer authorized Body Shop and they gave me an estimate of $3290. anyways, I contacted the insurance again and they said that's the maximum they can pay out since it was given by their adjuster. If it actually costs more, then I've to give it to the Body Shop and they will deal with them directly. Is there any way I can push for more? I did take some time off work to get the estimate. thanks

Stopping unwanted guests from visiting property?
Added on : Friday November 01st 2013 08:00:11 AM
g: 1 Posted By: MrSamsung
Views: 282 Replies: 13 I've been having an issue with a specific organization on one of my properties. I have some great renters I want to keep, but I might lose them because of this (I posted the name of the organization earlier but it's against FW rules so I am keeping this generic). The family in the home is a family of four, young parents and two small kids. They have a lot of friends and family visit on weekends because of the little ones, but every other Saturday morning these folks knock on their door. The problem is that they usually are bathing their children or changing their diapers, and they think there are visitors at the door so they drop everything to answer the door only to see unwanted guests. They've told them they weren't interested, asked to be on a do-not-call list, but their requests have gone nowhere. They've even spoken to someone high up in the organization that is supposed to be able to stop these things, but the people knocking on their doors continue to rotate (i.e., they are different every week) and don't care.

They've asked me (as the landlord) to figure out how to stop them from coming by. I actually installed a sign specifically targeting this organization to stop coming, but they still showed up pretending like they didn't see it and walk away. I guess I could make the sign larger but it wouldn't look very good in the neighborhood. I called the city's non-emergency line but they basically told me there was nothing else I could do. I dropped off a letter to the local organization asking them to stop visiting the home, but they are still ignoring it.

My tenants have started to look at other places to rent (they refused to sign another lease with me because of this specific issue). They are paying ~15% over market rate, and even setup ACH pushes to my account for rent payment. They take great care of my property (mow/water the lawn, clean everything etc..) and I would hate to lose them. Does anyone have any ideas?

-Current value of the house is around $200,000
-It is in a cookie cutter neighborhood, and it is among the largest and most expensive in the neighborhood.
-I have a HEL at 3.99% fixed, 83 months left on the loan. Current balance $87,xxx

Monthly expenses (current):
$1214 - HEL payment
$424 - property tax (pay in full at the end of the year, this is the yearly cost /12. It will also be higher next year due to no longer being owner occupied)
$96 - insurance (pay in full, yearly cost /12)
$54 - HOA (pay in full, yearly cost /12)
Total: $1788

Property management fee will be 7% on top of this. I would need to charge at least $1925/month for rent just to break-even from a cashflow perspective, and that's before I take maintenance/repairs and vacancies into consideration.

I've had a realtor from the property management company advertise the house on MLS for $2000/month for the past 4 weeks. I've had 3 showings so far, which the realtor says is very low. When we set the $2000/month price, the realtor did a market analysis and said that price was fine. A week ago, a house that's very close to mine came on the market for rent at $1800 a month. My house is a little nicer on the inside, I have tons of landscaping work, I allow for pets on a case-by-case basis, I'm including all appliances, so I am adding a little bit of value compared to the other house, but probably not much. The realtor wants me to drop the price to $1800 a month. That would leave me in a pretty bad position from a cashflow perspective. I really don't want to go this low.

I'd like to try adding a bonus for the renter's realtor. Normally they get half a month's rent as commission. What if I were to increase this by say $500? That's 50% more than what they would get normally. Is this worth a try? Any advice is appreciated. I have to move by the end of December, but the sooner I move, the better.

I've also tried advertising the house on Craigslist for $1800 a month, but I haven't had any interest. A refinance is basically not an option, I don't want to deal with the headache of refinancing when I'm moving.

Neighbor has two dogs that bark constantly when he isn't home.
Added on : Wednesday October 30th 2013 10:00:06 AM
g: 3 Posted By: cantgetanysleep
Views: 383 Replies: 21 The situation is that my neighbor has two medium sized dogs that bark whenever he is not home. He is the only person living in his house and has his two dogs tied up in his backyard. They can roam around a little bit but their chains and the fenced-off sections restrict them from roaming any more than a dozen feet. He also has remodeling work being done on his whole house being performed by contractors. They are fully aware of the noise issue and have been as quiet as possible... in fact I don't even hear them working.

My bedroom windows are about 10 feet from the wooden stakes that separate the properties. The dogs are another 5-10 feet from the fence on the other side.

I usually don't care if they bark all day during the day, but they start barking as soon as he leaves for work at 5:30am - 6:00am, which means I get woken up at that time also. Sometimes they would bark for 10 minutes and stop for 10 mins and repeat for hours until I leave for work. Other times they would just bark continually for hours. This happens every day during the weekday.

I have contacted him about the issue at first with a nice letter and have allowed a few months to passed with no action taken. I've then contacted the city's animal control with TWO written and signed documents detailing the complaint with dates and times of the incidences over the span of another 2 - 3 months and still have yet to see the barking issue resolved. On top of that, I got one of those commercial ultrasonic generator that triggers on a bark - that seemed to help for about a week until the dogs started back up again.

I'm now on the fifth month of trying to get this issue resolved. The city doesn't look like they give a rats ass and neither does the neighbor so I'm left with pursuing some legal actions unless there's some ideas that I havn't thought of.

Has anyone pursue an issue like this through court? How did it turn out? I was thinking of either going through small claims for monetary damages, or hire a lawyer to get a court order to either remedy the problem or remove the dog from the premise. I'm not really after the monetary damages from small claims as the threat of that is used more for getting the neighbor to quiet his pooches.

Views: 138 Replies: 2 I am writing this on behalf of my parents with the hope that someone here can offer some insight into avenues of recourse for this situation.Background:My parents purchased and are now remodeling a home in Southern California. It is not their primary place of residence. The remodel is pretty significant; one full standing remaining wall on one side and a portion of the framing supporting the second story including floor of second story. The foundation remains. The remodel is the point where the framing is up and plumbing is going in, then next electrical and low voltage wiring.

A City inspector has frequented the site on occasion and has not raised any concern until recently. The City inspector told the contractor that since this wasnt a remodel, it was a rebuild he was going to require that a sprinkler system be put in the house. This specific verbiage is very important, because any supporting documents that the inspector has provided have not in any way mentioned the word rebuild. In fact, on the supporting documents he has provided, only two distinctions are made: New and Remodel. This certainly isnt a new construction by classic definition of new, which means that it falls into the other category of remodel. The supporting documents indicate that if the construction is new it requires a sprinkler system but if it is a remodel it does not require a sprinkler system. I have included a snapshot of the document to which Im referring to. And I have also linked the county documents governing these issues.

My Father and his Contractor met with the inspector and the local Fire Chiefto further discuss this supposed requirement. The other City officials agreed with the Inspector in saying that sprinklers are mandatory with the construction. The other city officials agreed to have a third party look at the issue to come to some kind of consensus. The third party is the Board of Equalization, ironically enough.

While I dont believe my father is opposed to a sprinkler system, this has become a principle of fighting bureaucracy. Remodels are popular in this particular area as the majority of the homes were built in the 1970s. When talking with neighbors who have recently remodeled, it was found that they were not required to put in sprinkler systems. It was also discovered that this particular City inspector is notorious for causing little issues like this.

My father and I believe that by agreeing to something like putting a sprinkler system that a reference is made that this is in fact *not* a remodel, but something different. This could have implications on the property tax structure and in California these are very serious implications.

I would like to say this is a slam dunk case; that is, the City officials have NO CASE according to the documentation they have provided but the other issue here is that neither remodel or new construction is defined in the documentation. I think by deduction we could conclude this is not a new construction though. The fact that the inspector came up with his definition of what the construction is by calling it a rebuild and not having this definition supported on any of the governing documents is troubling. The fact that group of city workers unanimously agreed to the inspectors judgements and is going to bring in another government entity to get a third party ruling is also troubling.

Construction has been at a stand still while this issue is being figured out. I wanted to pose this to the fatwallet community before moving one direction to get input from people who may have experienced similar situations or know something about the real estate and construction law before seeking legal representation.

In October of 1934, a farm laborer named Claude Neal was lynched by a small group of men deep in the swamps of the Florida Panhandle. He was accused of murdering Lola Cannady, a 19 year old neighbor.

The Claude Neal lynching was the spark that ignited one of the most violent outbreaks in American history. In the first book-length study of the topic in more than 30 years, author and historian Dale Cox pushes back the mists of time to shed new light on the lynching and the related murders of Lola Cannady and Deputy Dave Ham. The result is a book that will forever change our understanding of what happened in Marianna and Jackson County, Florida, in the fall of 1934.

About the Author

Dale Cox is a Southern writer and historian based in the quaint little community of Two Egg, Florida. Born in Georgia, he is the author of a growing collection of books on Southern history and folklore, including critically acclaimed histories of three small Civil War battles.

John Brown Illustrated [Kindle Edition
http://www.amazon.com/John-Brown-Illustrated-ebook/dp/B00FAQFF4K

John Brown was a driven man on a mission to abolish slavery. On October 16, 1859, he commanded twenty-one volunteer soldiers of black and white skin color on a raid of the United States Armory and Arsenal at Harpers Ferry.

Yellow Green Beret Volume III: Stories of an Asian-American Stumbling Around U.S. Army Special Forces (Yellow Green Beret : Stories of an Asian-American Stumbling Around U.S. Army Special Forces) [Kindle Edition
]http://www.amazon.com/dp/B009BA1UJK

As the final tome in the three-part series depicting the off-color and unusual stories that highlighted Chester Wongs uncharacteristic career as a detachment commander in the U.S. Army Special Forces, Yellow Green Beret: Volume III is a considerably more serious account almost devoid of the trademark goofy and comical stories that were speckled amongst the first two books. In many ways, Yellow Green Beret: Volume III is a true and honest revelation regarding the darkest sides of Chester Wongs path and experiences as an unsure West Point cadet on his way becoming a leader in one of wartime Americas most elite and cutting edge counterterrorist forces. Truly the final pillar in the house called Wong, Yellow Green Beret: Volume III leaves no stone unturned in piecing together the coming-of-age journey of an unusual Asian-American young man.


In the Beginning Was the Logos [Kindle Edition]
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BQ3HKEE

Who is the Logos? Men brawled in bars and beat each other to death in the streets over this question, a controversy which came to a head at the Council of Nicea. There a fringe group of peace-loving, communal worshipers of a crucified Palestinian prophet took over the Roman empire and begin an odyssey that would transform the world as we know it.
In this information age, rumors fly about the Council of Nicea. From fictions spread by noted university professors to the _Da Vinci Code_, and even to the Glenn Beck show, everyone counts himself an expert on the most significant transformation of Christianity in history.
Paul Pavao, webmaster of Christian History for Everyman, not only tells you the story of the most world-changing century of Christianity since the apostles, He puts the original sources in your hand, letting you read the words of the participants in the council and in the battles that preceded and followed the council itself. You'll never wonder again what really happened at the Council of Nicea.
Was the Emperor Constantine a Christian or a worshiper of Apollo, out to mold Christianity into pagan hybrid?
Was the Trinity invented at Nicea?
Were the books of the Bible decided upon at the Council of Nicea?
You'll not only know the answers to all these questions, you will relive the events of it in the words of the early Christians.

The Kings of Mauretania (The Forgotten Civilisations of Africa) [Kindle Edition]
http://www.amazon.com/Mauretania-Forgotten-Civilisations-Africa-ebook/dp/B007Q2GW4S

The Kingdom of Numidia was the most powerful autochthonous civilisation in North Africa until Rome set foot on the African soil. Numidia became even too powerful for its own good and Rome (that just got rid of its rival Carthage) did not intend to let a new rival develop in its vicinity.
Rome fought many times against the Numidian kings and at some stage they managed to occupy completely their lands.
After that Numidia disappeared completely from the maps but the neighbouring kingdom of Mauretania survived and grew in power and in importance. Mauretania and Rome co-existed in peace for a while but at some stage, the Romans, decided to expand further in Africa and moved towards Mauretania.
This book will deal with this other great civilisation (too little known too) that existed more than 2000 years ago.

Free- The Mexican Mafia, The Story [Kindle Edition] Was $14.99
Added on : Friday October 11th 2013 02:00:05 AM
g: 0 Posted By: remick
Views: 171 Replies: 0 http://www.amazon.com/The-Mexican-Mafia-Story-ebook/dp/B00AZDHK28

In this, the story of the rise of the Mexican Mafia, police officer Robert Morrill shines a bright light on the formation of one of the most notorious street and prison gangs in our nation today.
The Mexican Mafia learned that the surest way to power, the quickest way to large financial gain, and the guaranteed way to respect on city streets and within prisons was through brutal assassination of enemies both outside the gang and within ones own sworn membership.
Ruling by terror, the gang was steeped in the blood of any who dared challenge their power. Retribution was often swift, sometimes delayed, but always certain.

The author, now retired with over 45 years in law enforcement, was raised in both South Central and East Los Angeles neighborhoods during the 1940s and 1950s. He grew up with the generation that ultimately formed Southern Californias Mexican Mafia. Officer Morrill, as an original member of the first Prison Gang Task Force to be formed in the State, came to personally know and interview senior Mexican Mafia leaders, engaging them behind prison walls and out on the streets of Southern California.

Blending multiple themes addressing the emergence of gang power, racism, political corruption, assassination, prison life, law enforcement and adherence to duty in ones own professional life, the author offers a personal picture of the tumultuous 60s, 70s and 80s as gang growth exploded across this nation. He reveals how gang members recruited, how they controlled other prison inmates, conducted contract assassinations, bribed and influenced government employees and elected officials, and ultimately spread their power and influence across state and regional lines.

Advice needed on how to invest my money
Added on : Tuesday October 08th 2013 09:00:06 AM
g: 0 Posted By: aexchange
Views: 131 Replies: 2 As a long time lurker, I'm turning to this community in looking for advice on how I should invest funds. I expect to have by March of next year somewhere in the neighborhood of $130-$150K in savings from a combination of proceeds from a house sale and continued savings on my current nest egg. I need some general guidance on how much I should leave untouched in savings for an emergency fund and what specific avenues I should use with the primary goals of creating modest returns, keeping said funds liquid, and minimizing my overall risk.

I'm well aware that I have significantly more funds than are needed for a 6 month emergency fund which is why I turn to this group for advice. As for background, I'm married with 1 kid, am the sole source of income, and make approximately $180K a year and max out my 401k. We have no debt aside from an expected house PITI payment of around $2700 a month and a car note through PenFed at $620 a month. My job is relatively stable, but that said, given the fact that I am the only source of income and my wife is a stay at home mom, my tolerance for risk is extremely low.

Thoughts?

Loan to Liquor/Beer store
Added on : Thursday October 03rd 2013 04:00:11 AM
g: 0 Posted By: zimma13
Views: 211 Replies: 9 I know someone who owns 2 liquor/beer stores outright and 50% of a third store (no loans, mostly cash business). He is buying a 4th store. I can loan him $20,000 at 25% for 1 year secured by one of the existing stores (not the new one). Written up in a contract and paid in cash each month (no taxes). If we mutually agree, the loan can keep rolling in yearly increments. He lives in my neighborhood. I sometimes get free beer already.

1. Would you do it?
2. Anything I should look out for to include in the contract to protect myself?
3. He only wants a loan, not for me to own a % of the store. Note I will do nothing but lend the money. He is the one that does all the work.

The alternative is that I buy a rental property which won't have as good of a cash return (once rented)but is secured by real estate andI hope the value increases. This is in Florida so $20k can nearly be 20% down on a house.

Shoddy new home construction - next steps?
Added on : Sunday September 29th 2013 11:00:08 AM
g: 0 Posted By: okwiater
Views: 72 Replies: 1 My wife and I contracted to purchase a new home with a local builder in September 2011, and closed on the home in April 2012. We noticed a few issues during construction but they seemed minor and the way the contracts are written there is no way to demand corrections prior to closing.

A few months after closing, the asphalt company laid the topcoat as scheduled. Unfortunately, by the foreman's admission they were "short a couple of guys" and they rushed to get the job completed, and unsurprisingly the result is a sloppy installation that is poorly rolled and has low spots that hold water long enough to freeze during the winter months. We've talked to the builder about it, and they are saying that it is within spec. We followed up with a letter demanding it be fixed (using a template available on our county's website) and they responded in kind with a letter that said they will do nothing about it.

Since then, a few pieces of stone veneer applied to the exterior have also fallen off. The builder's solution is to re-adhere the fallen pieces but a contractor we've had out to look at it is saying it's one of the worst scratch coat mortar jobs he's seen. I'm betting the only way to truly fix it is to take down the veneer and redo it.

Which brings me to wonder what the right course of action is for a remedy. In total, we're probably looking at $15-20k to fix these two issues. But there are also a few other people in the neighborhood dealing with similar issues, and the builder still has another phase of the neighborhood to build.

Here are my choices as I see them:

1. Lawyer up. Could get full reimbursement for remediation, but could also throw good money after bad.

2. File a claim against the new home warranty. This would likely not succeed as we are outside the 1-year "bumper to bumper" coverage.

3. File a claim against the state's new home guaranty fund. This would likely result in arbitration and a labyrinthine resolution process but may result in full or partial reimbursement of remediation costs.

4. Scream from the rooftops. This could involve signs in the front yard to scare away potential buyers, a website and Google AdWords to attract diligent buyers and scare them with truthful negative experiences, etc. If effective, the builder may relent and pay for us to "go away". Or, they could sue us for libel (defensible but a hassle). Or, it could just be a waste of time. It may also piss off neighbors who don't appreciate negative hits to property values.

5. Pay up and move on with life.

So, what would you do in my situation? Any other advice or suggestions? Thanks for any help or perspectives you can offer.

Builder wants additonal monies for landscaping
Added on : Wednesday September 25th 2013 11:00:09 AM
g: 0 Posted By: joeH1974
Views: 1 Replies: 0 My wife and I have entered into contract for new construction. The forms were laid yesterday, and the home is slated to be completed around mid-January.

The home is in a gated community, and the land parcels are quite large (1.28 acres for ours). On the original price breakdown, the builder quoted $4k for the front yard landscaping work. We agreed to the construction price, and signed off on the contract. The builder did as well. When we received the plans, we didn't like the placement of the home on the land, and asked that the front of the home be rotated around 10 degrees further to the south. The builder agreed, and we signed off on the plans.

Today I received an e-mail from the builder stating that the neighborhood architectural review committee requires that not only the front yard landscaping be completed prior to moving in, but side landscaping must be completed as well. This comprises around 10,000 sq feet of land between the street and the rock wall enclosing our yard. The builder is stating that they will eat the additional cost of landscaping for the front of the yard due to the home rotation, but that I need to advise them how I want to pay for the additional $8,000 in landscaping expenses for the side. (Change order, out of pocket, hire own landscaper). Apparently they did not know of the proposed requirement until it was levied on them at another home in the community they just finished building. The other homeowner apparently paid for the additional cost without issue.

My question is: can the builder ask me to pay for the side yard landscaping after a contract has been signed agreeing on construction price? Isn't it the responsibility of the builder to understand the covenants prior to determining an agreed price? Or should this really be my responsibility, as when we signed the contract they hadn't heard from the committee yet on the other home and therefore couldn't have known about the additional landscaping needed. So far, we've had a good working relationship between us and the builder, but $8k is something we definitely weren't expecting.

I'm fairly certain I don't need to worry about zoning because there will be no traffic at all for the business address, and my neighborhood doesn't have an HOA or anything. I live in a medium sized city in the Midwest.

This part time helper will just be doing menial stuff, mailing letters, office work etc.
My plan was to go above board, W-4, etc. But if there would be implications for permits, inspections, etc, I am not sure I want to mess with that and may consider 1099 status.
Also considering speaking to a local small business attorney in case I'm missing any important issues. I'm sure this is a common thing to hire someone PT in a non manufacturing home business.

Any anecdotal or general advice would be greatly appreciated, I'm sure many of you have side businesses that would be more profitable with someone else doing the churning legwork

http://www.amazon.com/The-Death-Glory-Western-ebook/dp/B00ET09EEA

#1 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > History > Military > World War I​

The First World War remains a controversial subject: the bitter reality is often clouded with popular - and damaging - myths.
Many of these misconceptions relate to the competence of the generals and the true outcomes and achievements of battles - particularly the battles fought during 1915.
The reality of these battles has increasingly been distorted by the allegation that the men were lions led by donkeys, with much of the blame put on the relevant commanders.
In this well-researched and highly readable book, Robin Neillands reveals the truth behind this fallacy and the events surrounding the battles, and sets them in a wider context.Before the Iron Curtain:

My WWII Childhood (Iron Curtain Memoirs)
http://www.amazon.com/Before-Iron-Curtain-Childhood-ebook/dp/B00DS7TXIC

At the time Anne Frank lived in Holland, Irene Kucholick grew up in eastern Germany, 75 kilometers southwest of Dresden. Banned from her father's study, because it was there he taught the fleeing Russian nobility German. Irene's first experience evading police came at age five. By eight she realized grownups frequently listened to Hitler's radio speeches. Soon her friend, Esther, wore a yellow star and Nazi youth marched in the streets while the half-Polish Irene was deemed unfit for membership in the Party. From Kristallnacht and hidden neighbors to whistling bombs, a prison cell and her father's draft to the Russian front, Irene takes us on a World War II journey through the eyes of a child who lived to tell the tale

Length: 110 minutes
Original Release: 2004


Featuring: Ving Rhames, Jake Weber, Kevin Zegers, Lindy Booth, Mekhi Phifer, Michael Kelly, Sarah Polley, Ty Burrell


First-time director Zack Snyder remakes zombie master George A. Romero's classic 1978 gore-fest DAWN OF THE DEAD, wisely replicating only the basic elements of Romero's movie, instead sticking to his own vision of a world overrun by undead flesh-eating creatures. The action begins with nurse Ana (Sarah Polley) waking up to discover her boyfriend has become a tasty midnight snack for a formerly cute neighboring kid. To her horror, she realizes that the whole town is in a similar state of ghoulishness, until she runs into still-alive cop Kenneth (Ving Rhames); the levelheaded Michael (Jack Weber); and Andre (Mekhi Phifer), a rebel with a pregnant wife in tow. As in Romero's original, the group heads for the local mall where they barricade themselves inside. More survivors surface, while in the outside world the zombies go about their day by slowly taking over the planet. Undeterred by the odds against them, the survivors plot, scheme, and enjoy their mall paradise. As they plan their escape, some incredibly gruesome special effects are deployed, often with a dash of wry humor added for light relief.

NCUA Warns Federal Credit Unions About Open Membership
Added on : Saturday September 07th 2013 09:00:12 PM
g: 2 Posted By: NEDeals
Views: 86 Replies: 1 The National Credit Union Administration, a federal agency based in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia has sent a letter to federal credit unions warning them against open membership policies. They seem unhappy the credit unions are advertising that their credit union is available to all via relaxed membership policies or a field of membership that contains access easily obtainable by all. This could make it much more difficult to join some credit unions (e.g. State Department, PenFed, DCU, etc.) that heavily advertise for new members. Credit union members are supposed to have common bonds and the NCUA states guidelines for associations that are used in a field of membership, including paying dues, having meetings etc. .

As the NCUA is a federal agency and thus its works are not copyrightable, here is the text of the letter which is also available at
http://www.ncua.gov/Resources/Pages/LFCU2013-03.aspx
NCUA LETTER TO FEDERAL CREDIT UNIONS
NATIONAL CREDIT UNION ADMINISTRATION
1775 Duke Street, Alexandria, VA 22314
DATE: September 2013 LETTER No.: 13-FCU-03
TO: All Federal Credit Unions
SUBJ: Potential Violations of Common Bond Advertising Requirements

​Dear Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer:
If your credit union is advertising that anyone, without limitation, is able to become a member of your credit union, then you may be in violation of federal law and regulation.

Some overly aggressive marketing campaigns by federal credit unions to facilitate membership through associational groups are providing consumers with misleading information about single and multiple common bond membership requirements.

NCUA is particularly concerned about advertising by federal credit unions stating their fields of membership are open to anyone. Several recent examples of such overly expansive advertising focus on becoming a credit union member by first joining a particular association. Mainstream financial publications have picked up on this message, as evidenced by recent articles listing federal credit unions perceived to have open membership. This gives the false impression that there are no restrictions on joining a federal credit unionwhich is not the case.

In light of these issues, this letter is intended to remind you of the:



Common bond requirements in the Federal Credit Union Act and NCUA rules;



Requirements for accuracy of advertising in NCUA rules; and


Consequences of failing to comply with these requirements.


Common Bond Requirements
Section 109(b) of the Federal Credit Union Act limits federal credit union membership to three basic types single common bond, multiple common bond, and community: 1

A single common bond credit union consists of persons related by their occupation, (i.e., their place of employment or trade, industry or profession), or related by their association (i.e., place of worship or affiliations).

A multiple common bond credit union consists of more than one group of persons related by either their occupational or associational affiliations.

NCUA rules, specifically the Chartering and Field of Membership Manual, 2 explain the requirements for the associational common bond. 3 NCUA determines whether a group satisfies the associational common bond requirements based on a totality of the circumstances test, which has the following seven factors 4

1) Whether members pay dues;

2) Whether members participate in the furtherance of the goals of the association;

3) Whether the members have voting rights;

4) Whether the association maintains a membership list;

5) Whether the association sponsors other activities;

6) The associations membership eligibility requirements; and

7) The frequency of meetings.

NCUAs Office of Consumer Protection has begun conducting quality control reviews of federal credit unions that may be improperly using associations to sign up members without a common bond.

Advertising Requirements

Section 740.2 of NCUAs Accuracy of Advertising rule prohibits any advertising or representation that is inaccurate or deceptive. Advertisements that include language to the effect that anyone can join or membership is open to everyonewithout any qualifying languagecan give the impression that the Federal Credit Union Acts single or multiple common bond requirements do not apply. When this occurs, the advertisements are inaccurate or deceptive.

Please review your credit unions advertising and promotional practices and ensure all current and future materials accurately portray membership eligibility.

Consequences of Non-Compliance

The Federal Credit Union Act provides NCUA with a broad array of supervisory and administrative tools to enforce the law and rules. Depending on the degree of non-compliance, NCUA may initiate a supervisory contact, require a federal credit union to divest an associational group from its field of membership, and/or issue a Cease and Desist order.

The tool NCUA chooses will depend on a variety of factors including the severity of a particular violation, available methods to rectify a violation, and the extent of a federal credit unions cooperation.

Upholding the membership standards of every federal credit union charter is essential to maintaining the integrity of the federal credit union system.

If you have any questions about NCUAs common bond or advertising requirements, please contact the Office of Consumer Protection at 703-518-1140 or OCPMail@ncua.gov.

​Sincerely,

/s/

Debbie Matz
Chairman

Blast Plus Internet (up to 50 Mbps)
Basic TV service (1 outlet)
HBO

First 12 months: $39.99
Months 13-24: $59.99
After that: Regular prices

Call 1-855-657-7211 to set up service. Offer ends 9/21/13 and limited to new residential customers.
NOTE: This may targeted and/or only be available in the Detroit metro area as that is where I reside. YMMV on regional availability and pricing.

This is a good deal as it is good for 12 months. I never sign up for the 6 month promotions because there is no point when they just jack the prices up right away. Even $59.99 for the 2nd year is still a good price for Blast Plus, tv, and HBO. Enjoy.

Edit: Don't forget, you will need a Docsis 3.0 modem to take full advantage of the 50 Mbps download speeds.

My first experience with Priceline Express Deals. In a nutshell - not good.

I received this email coupon the day after I did some searching on Priceline...Only when I went back in the only 3 star hotel in the area I wanted was no longer listed. I reviewed the other hotels and decided to go with a 2 star as this was only for one night. The only hotel that matched the one listed with the 2 star designation has pretty good reviews. The fine print with the Express deals, however, states that only the perks listed are the ones that are guaranteed and that they can switch the hotel you think you are bidding on with another one if it is the same star value or higher. Long story short, that is exactly what happened and I was burned by Priceline twice. The hotel I ended I ended up with does NOT have good reviews. It supposedly has bugs and is in an unsafe neighborhood. BURN. First time I have ever been really displeased with Priceline... No more Express deals for me.

Views: 5 Replies: 0 =xx-small ! important3Hello,

Old neighbors moved out; builder razed the house, chain-linked the property 8" over to us.

According to this thread, there are two kinds of surveys(full and not). The full one requires the surveyor to be bonded(for future disputes,errors), poles/pins are set, and a legal document is furnished.
http://www.fullofdeals.com/forums/finance/312692/

We have had a survey done years past, and so had the old neighbor. I dont know whether either survey was the full complete one;( though I am doubtful)

Overall, its only 8". However, we are in a culdesac/circle, narrow lots in front, and wide in back. The 8", given the narrow lots in front moves the boundary more noticeably.
(This used to be a quiet neighborhood, but things are very legalese now.)

Anyhow, we are in the Chicago suburban market; any advice/tips on how to best proceed? Should I talk to a lawyer first, or do my own legwork somehow(ie are these docs located at city dept.; Further, I dont see any pins at the corners set by the builder or how to verify? )

I bought this when they first released it and honestlyhave never seen it this low.

It's still running strong and does exactly what I need when I'm somewhere that has no outlets to charge my electronics.

Cheapest I've seen it for on eBay is $24.99 (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=370665663271)

Apparently it's also the #1 selling solar charger on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Best-Sellers-Electronics-Cell-Phone-Solar-... ), but the price is $25.07 there.

This is a major shift from recent generations that saw middle class families trading urban centers for suburbs with lawns, malls, parks, and good schools. But good schools still matter. And standing in the way of many parents' urban aspirations is the question: Will the public schools in the city provide a strong education for my kids? To be sure, lots of parents favor sending their sons and daughters to diverse schools with children from a variety of racial and socioeconomic backgrounds.

http://frugalsandwich.com/deal/growth-hacking-user-onboarding/Course Description from When a person lands on your site, you have one of the greatest opportunities available to you. You have to hook a user to an “aha moment.” Doing this isn’t easy work, and experts in the field have spent thousands of hours learning how users react to copy, design and other elements. To learn from them, with the help of my assistant at Zirtual (thanks Karmen!) we signed up for and took screenshots of an exhaustive list of some of the world’s fastest growing startups – beginning from the homepage, all the way to dashboard and the initial onboarding email. To date, this is the largest collection of web onboarding flows available - anywhere. On top of organizing the information, I’ve gone in and broken down some key takeaways from a cross-section of product types including Facebook, Square, Grouper and others.

Views: 0 Replies: 0 The city has begun demoing rundown properties and one of them is next to a duplex I own. I received a call yesterday saying some damage was done to my rental and went up to check it out. Seems an entire chimney fell through my duplex. Demo company is offering to repair the damage. It seems pretty extensive, so my concern is future problems from this accident. We had recently purchased this property and had not yet started renovating it, so it was vacant. We purchased the property for $15,500 and my insurance replacement cost is $130,000. Whats the FW play here?

Micro Center currently has the LG 60" PN5700 for $599.99 with free in-store pickup. This is $100 lower than their latest price and approximately $400 cheaper than Amazon is currently.LinkThis TV is also eligible for 6 months of free Netflix, bringing the effective net cost down to $552.There was some confusion regarding the model numbering for this HDTV since it was a late addition to the lineup. This is actually a model step ABOVE the PN6500, which is the same minus the smart functionality. When Micro Center runs these types of promotions, they usually run out quickly. I would highly suggest those on the fence to buy it online and do in store pickup. You can always cancel your order later.Specs:

Views: 34 Replies: 0 A new neighbor moved in next door approximately 18 months back. They are loud and obnoxious and have installed backyard speakers that they leave on at least 12 hours a day. The lots are about 8000 square feet with cement block walls that are 8 feet high dividing the properties. The music shakes my windows at times and makes it very hard to sit in my own house. I have contemplated moving but don't feel that I should be forced to move due to someone making my life so uncomfortable. The property values are between 1.5 and 2 million dollars. I have called the police department over 50 times and they come out and basically ask them to lower it and that's about it. After making some noise about the issue the lieteunant finally allowed me to file a noise complaint (415 disturbing the peace) I wrote up a summary of the events and filed it and never heard back from the police department. Apparently they say charges were never filed against my neighbor because the detectives did not see just cause. These are tract homes that were constructed in 2000 and I have lived here since new. My last neighbor was great and I never had any issues. The homeowners association refuses to get involved. Out of the 125 homes in this tract I am the only minority living here. I feel that discrimination in my city is extremely high and that is why no one is taking my concern seriously. I had a small get together in june for my sons graduation and we played a boombox in the backyard. Within 10 minutes of the music being on there were 4 police officers at my door. They issued me a citation for loud music. Its an administrative citation from the city. The same officer who issued the ticket was here 2 days prior at my neighbors house. Their music was much louder and could be heard from the street. I stood outside that day to hear what he was telling me neighbor and he basically gave him a warning and left. Why was I given a citation the first time and not even a warning? Why has my neighbor had them there 50 times and never gotten so much as a citation?This situation is causing a lot of emotional distress because we are unable to enjoy our home which we worked so hard to afford. I have read that playing loud annoying music in retaliation to someone elses loud music can sometimes get the other person to stop but I worry that I will be again issued a citation. Please HELP!

away on traveling and ceiling leak due to AC
Added on : Wednesday July 31st 2013 10:00:07 AM
g: 0 Posted By: fatwallet21
Views: 1161 Replies: 22 I wasn't sure where to post this but thought of starting here.... we are away for past few weeks and our home in a hot and humid place was checked by our neighbor regularly... our neighbor is awesome and she used to check it every other week or so... just yesterday she found that there is a small ceiling leak and they had the exact same leak at the same place (our houses are symmetrical).... she has turned off the AC for now... and the AC guy cant come in for next day or so.... so I am wondering what to do in this situation
1) is it ok to keep the AC OFF for few days?
2) what should I do in this situation since we are not there?
3) any ways to make sure the AC guy doesn't charge an exorbitant $$ amount because of our absence? TIAUPDATE:
Ended up paying $930 for this. He said the condenser outside the house went bad and because of that the AC was frozen and there was a leak inside the unit. This caused the unit to lose all the charge too. So he fixed the condenser piece that is outside the house and charged up the unit with 6 gallons of Freon. He said the Freon we have in our unit is pretty old standard and it's price is $85 per gallon.

Views: 235 Replies: 6 So, this question has indeed been asked a bunch of different ways before but I thought I'd ask again, folks seem enjoy analyzing these situations:Current house: Paid $220k, have $139k left on mortgage, 15 year, 13 years left @ 3.75%, appraised at $400k, I think $360-380k is probably realistic. Monthly payment is $1500 including taxes and insurance (P/I is $1000). Could rent probably for $1800-2200 (rentals in our neighborhood are rare and sought after, there's something down the street that is considerably worse and are asking $2000, it's currently rented). Looking at new house: Asking price is $470k, I think we could get them down a bit as it's been on the market for a few months and has some weird features to it. That said it's a cool house and in a very good area for us, more walkable than our current. So a new 30 year on it with 20% down ($95k) would be about $2250 a month with taxes and insurance). We were thinking about trying to rent the house for a while - a year or 2 and then see about selling it. I honestly don't think I'm up to fixing it up to try to sell it in the next 6 months, and since it should easily rent for more than it costs including taxes, it seems like a "safe" way to make the move. We have about $120k in cash available, though I still owe taxes (next april) on about half that. We are both self-employed, but I have a good income stream for the next 2 years. We are expecting a second baby in Nov, so wife's income is going away for a year, but again, my income is going to be pretty good for a while, about $90k each year at least. We have about $250k in various investments, some of which are in an IRA and some of which are in a taxable account and I wouldn't shed a tear about selling to come up with more cash. So what's the question and problem you might ask? Well, we're self employed. While this year and the next 2 are really good, last year our AGI was probably about $45k. This wasn't a problem, our living expenses including mortgage are about $4k a month currently, and we have good savings, but it probably doesn't look too good to a lender. We qualified for refi's twice as self employed people without issue, but I'm assuming if you have another mortgage on file they are going to look a little more sternly at you. What are our options? I really don't want to try to sell the house before the baby comes. If my parents co-signed the new loan (they are retired and have no debts) would that solve the issue? What do people do who want to move but really need to buy the new house before selling the old?

Views: 56 Replies: 1 I wasn't sure where to post this but thought of starting here.... we are away for past few weeks and our home in a hot and humid place was checked by our neighbor regularly... our neighbor is awesome and she used to check it every other week or so... just yesterday she found that there is a small ceiling leak and they had the exact same leak at the same place (our houses are symmetrical).... she has turned off the AC for now... and the AC guy cant come in for next day or so.... so I am wondering what to do in this situation
1) is it ok to keep the AC OFF for few days?
2) what should I do in this situation since we are not there?
3) any ways to make sure the AC guy doesn't charge an exorbitant $$ amount because of our absence? TIA

Broken tree cost

Views: 49 Replies: 0 On May 23rd my next door neighbor had a rather large Bradford Pear tree removed from his yard. In the process the contractor that was removing the tree dropped a large limb from the tree onto one of the trees in my yard breaking approximately 8 limbs on one side of the tree. I spoke with the home owner (its a rental house) and contractor right after this happened and the contractor assured me he would have someone out to trim the tree and make it right and after attempting to contact the contractor for 2 months I have seen nor heard from anyone. I was wondering what my course of action is and what the limit of liability would be for the contractor now that the tree is almost dead due to the broken limbs. Any suggestions on what I should do next?

Views: 103 Replies: 0 CNBC article: Auto insurance quotes can be 40% higher for drivers with less education and lower-job status.From the article:CFA went online to get price quotes for two hypothetical customers: a factory worker with a high school diploma and a plant supervisor with a college degree. Both were the same in every other way: a 30-year old single woman who rents in a moderate-income neighborhood, drives a 2003 Honda Civic, had no accidents or moving violations in the last 10 years and who went without insurance coverage for the past 15 days.The price-shopping took place in May and June with attempts to get quotes from the 10 largest insurance companies for the minimum required liability coverage in 10 major urban areas: Atlanta, Louisville, Chicago, Houston, Denver, Phoenix, Oakland, Seattle, Baltimore and Hartford.CFA found that five of the companies American Family, Farmers, Geico, Liberty Mutual and Progressive apparently consider education and occupation when setting rates:The Geico quote for the factory worker with only a high school education was significantly higher than the plant supervisor with a college degree: 45 percent more per year in Seattle ($870 vs. $599), 40% percent more in Hartford ($1,299 vs. $926), 33 percent more in Oakland ($922 vs. $693), 23 percent more in Louisville ($2,200 vs. $1,791), 21 percent more in Chicago ($1,013 vs. $840), and 20 percent more in Baltimore ($1,971 vs. $1,647).
Progressive also quoted higher annual premiums for the factory worker: 33 percent more in Baltimore ($1,818 vs. $1,362), 14 percent more in Houston ($1,406 vs. $1,236), 9 percent more in Louisville ($2,390 vs. $2,185), 9 percent more in Denver ($995 vs. $911) and 8 percent more in Oakland ($736 vs. $684).
Liberty Mutual's website would not even provide a rate quote for a high school graduate in five cities Atlanta, Louisville, Chicago, Denver, and Seattle but it would give a quote for a college graduate.

Views: 72 Replies: 0 Bought the house 6 months ago, it had relatively new electrical service installed but was not done to code. Had it redone as part of our close and buyers paid for it. Found out from another neighbor that the reason the electrical had to be replaced was because half of the other neighbors dead tree fell down and took out the original. The tree forks, and the other dead half is still up over the fence and above the new lines. I have no idea why it wasn't all cut down after the first incident. Who is responsible for the dead tree removal, or the repair of our property should the other half fall down? I have several tree services coming out Monday for estimates. I know I can cut the part down over my property line, but would like to avoid being fully responsible for the cost. I would post a pic but its too dark out to take one now, will add it tomorrow.

Investing in Extra Security? (Moving into New Home)

Views: 0 Replies: 0 Hey Guys,I am moving into a neighborhood in New Jersey and the crime rate is near 0% (Maybe 1 report of vandalism in the past year). My wife is telling me we dont need locks on the doors for inside the home, but as I lived in NYC I know first hand apartment break-ins and robberies. Although crime is down in NYC I grew up when it was high, and a part of me doesnt feel that safe without locks on the doors as a "just in case measure" for when we are not home for long periods (vacations) or for low chances of home invasions (Knock on wood). Trying to get a show of hands on what everyone thinks about having extra security at a new home by adding door locks to rooms in the home that require a key. Wifey thinks it is a waste of time and money to get locks that require keys for master bedroom, extra room, and basement.How are your homes setup and do you feel safe about your setup? Had any issues? Thanks in advance for any inputs.

handling accident while cutting lawn

g: 1 Posted By: releasefoobar
Views: 332 Replies: 15 Good Day All,I had an incident this morning and would like some advice. I cut a neighbor's lawn on a regular basis to earn a little extra money. This morning my lawn mower was in her driveway as I was in the middle of taking care of her lawn. She was backing out of her driveway on her way to work, didn't see the lawn mower and hit it. It cracked her taillight. She said her backup camera doesn't work so she didn't see it. She wanted me to pay for the taillight and a small scratch. She said she doesn't want to claim it on her insurance because she was recently in another accident and doesn't want her rates to go up. I offered to pay 1/2 to calm the situation. She called and said the estimate is $1100. Is the appropriate way of handling this to give her a cashier's check for 1/2 the amount and be done with it? I'm not sure who's at fault or the best way to deal with the situation. Thanks

Buying a used car and getting auto insurance & loan
Added on : Sunday July 07th 2013 01:00:08 PM
About a year ago, I posted here on whether or not I should get a car or just lease or rent and now I have decided to buy a used car due to recently lifestyle change, I will need to travel more. I am a newbie to buying cars, especially a used car and getting an auto loan and insurance. I know my insurance is not going to be cheap since I will be a new driver (getting my license in August) in New York. I have a license back in my own country but have not driven since I came to the states about 10 years ago. So my question is, how to buy a reliable used car and get auto loan? Do I need to first get my license before I can apply for the loan/insurance? Correct me if I am wrong, in NYS, if i'm buying a car with cash in full, I do not have to get a full coverage insurance. I don't plan on getting a full coverage though and anything over $500 for the insurance is too much for me. As for the auto loan, I am just getting it to boost up my credit score, I don't really need it, so my plan is to find something that offer 6 months without interest rate kinda loan. As for buying the used cars, I have seen in my neighborhood that there are people just selling their cars, but again I am not sure how reliable they are when it comes to giving me an honest history of the car knowing that not all history will be on carfax. Btw, I live in NY, Queens area if thats helpful. I just want to know where to start to speed up the process and I can just start driving once I have my license.

City filled a sink hole and now my house floods!
Added on : Tuesday July 02nd 2013 02:00:10 PM
After my wife and I bought a house, we found out a few months later that the lower level (basement) floods about twice every year. We have had engineers and geologists out to inspect the house and the property, and all signs lead to the ground water rising from beneath the house and filling our basement. Here's the catch...the city filled in a large sink hole near our house and installed storms grates which now cause water to back up on our property during a heavy rain. The geologists and engineers say the water is not coming in through the walls; instead, the water is coming up through the floor. We have also spoken with several neighbors and they say the house has flooded for as long as they can remember. (I'm not sure if the house flooded before the city filled in the sink hole and put in storm grates.)We also believe there may be a sink hole beneath our basement that could be related to the flooding. (This investigation is still underway.)Here are my questions:
1) Is the city responsible for the flooding in my house since they filled a sink hole near my house?
2) Should I seek legal action against the city?
Are Condo monthly maintence fees/ common charges a waste?
Added on : Tuesday July 02nd 2013 06:00:06 AM
I was talking to a fellow fatwallet member about my plans to buy a condo. He advised that it was a bad move as the monthly maintenance fees are a total waste and it can never be recouped. I agree with his point to some degree. However, I feel that as long as the fees aren't too low or too high the owner will benefit. Too high and no one will buy the place when you try to resell (less appreciation). Too low and the building isn't maintained properly, which also hurts resale and the rental market in the building and neighborhood to a lessor extent. Most of these buildings have doormen. I'm not sure how this affects appreciation in the long run. If anyone else has a better understanding of how these fees affect appreciation I would like to hear your thoughts.
Death by China: Confronting the Dragon - A Global Call to Action [Kindle Edition] was $25.99Peter W. Navarro (Author), Greg Autry (Author)
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004GXB41GPublication Date: May 5, 2011Publisher: Prentice Hall Professional119 Reviews ★★★★

This is the eBook version of the printed book.Bestselling author Peter Navarro (The Coming China Wars) and Greg Autry challenges the dominant paradigm of a "Chinese Miracle" - the one featuring a modernizing, progressive Chinese state heading toward political reform and driving global economic growth with its new found embrace of capitalism and freedom.
Tearing this delusion away, Death by China documents the myriad ways that a powerful, wealthy, and corrupt Chinese Communist Party emboldened by a growing nationalistic frenzy is becoming the biggest threat to global peace, prosperity, and health since Nazi Germany.
From currency manipulation and abusive trade policies, to slave labor and deadly consumer products, China's ruthless rulers threaten the livelihood of the citizens of every developed nation. These thugs have created a frightening amoral society ruled by a constant fear hidden to outsiders and bought off with the ill gotten profits of a myopic quest for economic advantage at any cost - social, environmental, or civil rights concerns be damned. Worse, as with everything else, China is scaling and exporting the model around this world, threatening their neighbors and exploiting developing nations across the globe with a new imperialism.
While America worries that Al Qaeda or Iran may get their hands on a weapon of mass destruction, China is using our Wal-Mart dollars to build them by the score; filling brand new nuclear submarines with missiles aimed at our heartland and building stealth planes designed to obliterate our friends in Japan, Korea, and Taiwan.
America's policy of appeasement and perpetual bending to Beijing's tacit threat to stop funding our unsustainable consumption based economy and deficit addicted government has left the Chinese people and the world in a frightening position while achieving absolutely nothing. With each new attempt at further "engagement" China simply rounds up more artists, writers, and political dissidents into its gulags and continues its policies of virtual genocide against the peoples of Tibet and the Uighars of East Turkestan. It tightens control over media and the Internet and expands its regional, territorial and resource claims. Laughing at our timidity, it becomes ever bolder in executing its plan to shutter every last manufacturing plant in the West.
Meanwhile, Western turncoat CEO's are content with pumping up one more quarterly report by driving every last high-value manufacturing jobs to Guangzhou or Chengdu. Congress is happy to be re-elected with contributions from those same corporations. Together they are happy to leave the rest of us with a future of low paying service and retail "careers" based on selling junk made in China to each other while accumulating a pile of Chinese debt and building a geopolitical time bomb of epic proportions.
For every American, European, Japanese or Korean reader who wonders where his job has gone and worries about the world his children will inherit, Death by China is a must read. The book features an inspiring Forward by Chinese Dissident, Baiqiao Tang and a brilliant Epilog by Congressman Dana Rohrabacher.About the Author

Vanguard Endeavor ED Binocular (8x42) $159.99 aMIR @ Amazon Gold Box
Added on : Saturday June 29th 2013 10:00:03 PM
Perfect for watching birds, deer, neighbors, whatever!Amazon LinkRebate FormInteresting tidbits:
1) This is the first Gold Box deal I've ever seen with a mail in rebate - adds to the fun! At least they don't require a review for the rebate. Lol.
2) The rebate does run all year long, so if you happened to have already done one since January you'd be out of luck.
3) The Camel shows the historic low around $280 through Feb 2012, so the saving are definitely there if you're in the market for a product such as this.---Vanguard's top-of-the-range Endeavor ED binoculars deliver sharpness and clarity like never before, with exceptional light transmission and remarkable color resolution and contrast.The Endeavor ED features an ergonomic, open-bridge design that's comfortable to use, along with a wide viewing angle and ultra-reliable BaK-4 roof prisms. The magic behind the binocular's performance lies in the premium ED glass, which reduces light dispersion to provide high-resolution colors and clarity. As a result, you can view objects from a distance as if they were standing right next to you. Vanguard also added an anti-reflective coating for even better clarity and a large focusing wheel for ease of use. Also, thanks to the binocular's nitrogen-charged, O-ring-sealed design, the Endeavor's waterproof/fogproof housing can take on the most challenging weather conditions.Features:Premium ED glass reduces color dispersion for better resolution and clarity

Any experience with Section 8?
Added on : Tuesday June 25th 2013 06:00:15 AM
Here's my situation: I have a relative who is disabled (actually disabled, not lazy). Her girlfriend/life partner/whatever they're calling it these days is also on disability, and gets a section 8 voucher. Currently they are living in a terrible neighborhood: multiple shootings and a murder or two in the last year within a few blocks. So, here's my plan. I would like to buy a small rental property in a safe neighborhood. Nothing nice, no granite countertops, just something safe, and cheap enough that I can cover my costs. I've found a couple of properties that will work, and am working on getting an offer together.I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with section 8. I've googled it, but I can't find good answers. Specifically:1. What is the process to get approved to accept section 8? What can I expect as far as inspections?
2. How long will it take to start getting paid?
3. Any chance that this won't get approved? It should be an arm's length transaction, because I'm not actually related to the person who is renting the place. I'm planning to charge about $50 below market rent (which is the voucher amount).This is in Ohio.

Cat scratches neighbor's truck second time
Added on : Thursday June 20th 2013 05:00:11 AM
I have four remaining of eleven free-roaming cats that I had sterilized and vaccinated back in 2004 when my neighborhood had been overrun by such cats, in addition to having two non-spayed females inside. I don't wish to take any more cats indoors.Within the past couple of years, Patches who likes to climb trees, go up on the house and occasionally cars, scratched the hood of my neighbor's truck twice. The previous time, we went through my mom's homeowner's (She ones the house, though I live here alone, aside from the cats.) and the damage was ~650 but insurance went up by about $200 for three years, so it was basically a wash. This time, the damage seemed much less, but there was some, and same place, Service King gave a quote of over 800 but when we questioned it, he did get a quote from some independent shop of $675, but no credit cards. I agreed to get him a cashier's check by this afternoon.Question (under Texas law), if I write "Payment in Full", can he write "Under Protest" or other such words and still come back demanding more money? I recall from watching The People's Court that some states allow that and some don't, which (allowing it) Harvey Levin mentioned he didn't like because that write those laws to get people to settle cases and keep them out of court. I wasn't sure which category Texas fits into.Other issue is the cat is gone. I need to get him out of here before he gets the truck fixed. Anyone in DFW area know of a no-kill shelter that isn't at capacity that will take him?
SF 'landlords from hell' plead guilty to felonies
Added on : Wednesday June 19th 2013 02:00:17 PM
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) A couple that prosecutors dubbed the "landlords from hell" for going to scary lengths to drive tenants from a San Francisco apartment building have pleaded guilty to several felonies.Prosecutors said Wednesday that 37-year-old Nicole Macy and 38-year-old Kip Macy threatened to shoot tenants, changed locks, cleared apartments of belongings, and sawed holes in floors. They say it was all to drive renters out of their building in the increasingly pricey South of Market neighborhood.The Macys each pleaded guilty to two felony counts of residential burglary, stalking and attempted grand theft. http://www.seattlepi.com/news/crime/article/SF-landlords-from-he...Sounds like some of the FW slum lords that post here. All perfectly legal here in Texas.

liability for lawn service
Added on : Thursday June 13th 2013 03:00:09 AM
Good Morning All,I was cutting my lawn yesterday and a neighbor asked me to cut hers while i was at it for a few $$. I took care of her lawn and next thing I know i wake up this morning I have three more neighbors that want to pay me to cut their lawns. I live in a town-home development so the lawns aren't that large i was just wondering what concerns i should have with liability. Hypothetical concerns like: what if i run over something and break it on their property with a lawn mower, harm some prized flower in their yard by accident, or even something like cutting their grass the wrong length. Thanks!
About six months ago, some new people moved in next door to me. The lady that owned it when I moved in had it sold on land contract to the people that lived next door to me for about 3 years. They moved out, and told me the place had some serious issues that she hadn't disclosed and refused to fix them, so they took the loss and got out of the contract.New people moved in late last fall. The house was built the same time as mine, 1910. But it is in WAY worse condition and hasn't been updated. They said they bought it for 50k (My house is appraised around 75k. Yes, its cheap, I live in Southern Ohio in the middle of nowhere). I assumed they knew what they were getting in to, due to the low price.We were talking yesterday, and he was asking me what I do about the roots in my basement. I was like...the what in my what? Apparently he has like 6" diameter roots pushing in the foundation around his crawl space. I told him that would require some serious foundation work, likely someone will need to bring out a backhoe, dig out around the foundation, and reinforce everything.He started telling me everything that was wrong over there, and it turns out, the seller hadn't disclosed any of the issues that the previous tenants had told her about. The roof leaks like a sieve, the foundation is getting destroyed, there is a serious mold problem in the crawl space and a lot of the beams are either already rotten in half or are close to it. He said they just had to put in a new hot water heater, because the old one's burner was completely rusted out and wouldn't stay lit. And, the plumbing is leaking like crazy, whenever someone uses the bath upstairs, water leaks down the wall on the first floor.I'm not a wealth of knowledge on this subject, because I had my own inspector come and look at my house before I bought it. He said the bank did hire an inspector, and it was OK'd, but that's all he knows.My suggestion was, start documenting everything. Take pictures (I suggested getting a disposable camera just to use for taking pictures of this), and go talk to a lawyer.How likely of a case do they have if they've been there six months and are finding all these things the seller didn't disclose (foundation damage, rot, mold, plumbing, roof)?Is there anything else I should suggest he do?Thanks!

Relocating - Rent or Sell in Hot Denver Market
Added on : Thursday June 06th 2013 06:00:04 PM
Hi There, I am new here but really dig this forum. Appreciate your feedback. Please excuse my detail...Just assume that is helpful with the analysis.I own a Denver home in one of the hottest up-and-coming neighborhoods in town. My neighborhood is a hotcake in the real estate market and houses are selling fast...Under contract in under a week. the house right across my street from me is a 1bed/1bath went for $215k in 2 days. Personally, it's time for a change in my life, and I am going to move to San Francisco. I don't have a job there yet. I know, I know. But I work in a hot industry and have savings for a few months, if needed. I have to take some risks. Looking for a job while in Denver is possible, but takes longer. I'm aware that I will lose money in the meantime. I currently have about 10k that I can use for this transition.Do I Rent My House or Sell?
- My mortgage is $1,350 (including everything except utilities) and I think I can get $2,000-$2,200/month from a renter. Yes, I'm serious. The market is crazy here and I am basing this off of what I see other houses renting for.
- I bought the house for $265k in 2009. I put 20% down in cash. I now owe $197k and have a 4.875% interest rate (was waiting to refi until I decided if I was staying or leaving the house)
- I think I can sell my house for $340-365k - I want $365k and confident that I can get an offer for that...Not sure it will appraise for that. But maybe in the summer. My yard is pretty awesome looking.
- I've put about $8k in the house over the years, but have hardly done anything. All old appliances and original floors, windows, etc. Was assuming area would sell itself.
- Please note, when I bought the house I got the $7,500 First-Time Home Buyer Tax Credit at 0% interest rate (was just slightly too early for the free cash the next year!) I have paid off $1,500 over the last 3 years, so I still owe $6,000 back to the government for that money.Pros for Selling
- I cut myself clean of Landlord obligations. I love my house and worry about renters not loving it or taking care of it...But I think I would get over it.
- I'll make some money to help me with my move and with SF rent
- I could do For Sale by Owner, but have no idea how to do it. Could talk a realtor friend down from 6% to maybe...3%?
- Neighborhood is HOT HOT HOT. I could sell in a week and get multiple offers.Cons for Selling
- I can make more in a a year or 5 years. You never know...But yes, I think I could. It's already happening. But will the bubble pop before I get there!?
- Moving back to Denver could happen...But it would be hard to find a rental/home to buy in this area for a good price.Pros for Renting
- I think I could make a decent amount every month to cover my entire mortgage and then some. Could help me with the mouth dropping rents of San Fran
- My neighborhood is HOT HOT HOT, but just on the tip of being over-the-top hot. One more year and a lot more will be here...Hot famous Denver coffee shop (about a month until it opens), brand new lightrail .5 miles away, and just hitting an all-time high. I could make more on selling it later?
- I could always come back and move back into it. Or keep it as a rental foreverCons for Renting
- Being a landlord might suck
- Renters won't care for the house like I do
- It will cost me money to repair
- It will cost me money to pay for a management company/friend to maintain
- The neighborhood gets better, so taxes go up up upIf you have read through this entire post...You are great. Thank you! I know there will be varied feedback...Be kind, it's a big decision for me. I am a single young lady and bought this house on my own. There is a lot of pride with that, and now I need to make the best decision both finically and personally. Bring on that feedback! Thank you!

Refinance - Worth it or Not? Which Companies are Reputable?
Added on : Tuesday June 04th 2013 05:00:08 PM
Hi everyone,We are in a situation where we have a home that depreciated a little in value - we got the house after the bubble burst in 2010. When we got the home we got an incentive to get our mortgage done with Bank of America sadly. Anyhow, I'm a newbie to this stuff - so bear with me please. We are receiving a lot of refinance ads in the mailbox from companies like Quicken Loans and MANY others.Our situation on the home:
-Home has depreciated in value a little since purchase (according to tax and neighborhood).
-We want to move to a different area (Switch/relocate jobs to somewhere else). However, this isn't viable at this point since I just started a new job here and I don't want to leave it.
-This home is very small $ on us. It's ~$140k home, and our combined income is $130k (untaxed). We both want a nicer home in a nicer area that doesn't depreciate.
-Current Mortgage Rate: Bank of America 5.00% APR
-We went to BOA to see/talk to them about it. She was pushing for a 15-Year at about 3.5%... I was scratching my head because I was under the impression that 30-year's are about that much, while a 15 Year is more along the lines of high 2%'s. The fee's they said we would be responsible if we went with them would be $1000 flat, and ~$800 in fees to assess the property value, etc..Questions:
1) What is the reputation of re-financing through the likes of Quicken Loans?
2) What are the likely fee's? All the ads say no fees - Will other companies like Quicken Loans really be fee-free or is that BS?
3) Should I try to re-fi through our current lender Bank of America? (Note: See above Result from our visit to BOA, approx $1800 in fees if we went through them).
4) Given our situation (wanting to move at some point) - is refinancing in our best interest at all? We honestly don't see ourselves moving in the next 2 years though, as much as we want to.
5) What APR Rate should I expect?
6) We are currently paying off our current 5% APR with $900 extra into principle. Should I keep a 30-year or is a 15-year be of more interest?'
Thanks for any help, sorry for me being a newbie to all of this.

Help me out with some housing decisions
Added on : Friday May 31st 2013 08:00:06 AM
Ok - I come to my FWF with open ears for some advice. This is a bit lengthy, so if you'd rather not read please move on. Those of you with real-estate experience, families, and the inner struggle of trying to be frugal but still wanting quality of life are most appreciated (though all constructive thoughts are welcome).
I'm currently in Chicago condo which I bought for $335K in 2006 and is now, if I'm lucky, worth about $250K. The condo is a 3BR - ~1300 sq ft, occupied by my wife and I (1 room), my 1 year old (1 room), and the 3rd room (which is legally a bedroom, but has french doors) acts as my office. This latter fact is important - as I work from home (company based in another state). We plan to have a second child (at least in my wife's belly) by the end of the year. We need (want?) to move. At first it was because we know we will need more space for the second child. Things are also a bit cramped with my working from home and getting a bit more space will be less of a distraction.
We also wanted a better school district and place to raise our kids, maybe a yard, and a place to play with toys that isn't in the middle of our living room.I've been looking around the suburban areas which are within the radius of where we want to be (that is no more than 45-60 mins from O'hare and some other suburbs where family lives). I've been using sites like Redfin and Zillow - I haven't actually engaged any realtors and gone out looking yet. What I am finding - exclusive of school districts - is that a place just the size and style I would prefer it at minimum $450K. Even moving up to $600K I wouldn't be getting what I would be fully happy with.Now let me stop and state to anyone not in the Chicago Suburban area - prices are ridiculous. Everyone who doesn't want to live in the city wants to live in the north, north-west, and western suburbs. They don't want to go too far out because either they commute to Chicago or they don't want to live out in the sticks. I honestly wouldn't mind living in the sticks, but we are beholden to these same higher-price areas because of where our family lives and my need to get to the airport with some regularity. There are of course some less ideal suburbs scattered throughout and their prices are lower, but it usually isn't just a matter of location - the houses just aren't as nice either.I am doing ok financially. I make low six figures (my wife is a home-maker), and we have pretty good savings (both retirement and otherwise). I would have ideally $250K from the sale of my condo (the mortgage to which I am good with, and should be even better when I take out a new one on the house). My father is planning to provide a very generous gift to the purchase of a new home - perhaps $200K. So, between these two sums I can meet my $450K no problem. I could even plunk down another $100-150K and while it would deplete a nice portion of my liquid savings, it wouldn't create any major financial stress.BUT...I hate the idea of a mortgage...the idea of debt and being tied down to it. Although I know that my life now means I can't run off and join the circus, or backpack through the Himalayas - I still don't like the idea of knowing I will be living to pay this off. However, I do have a family - they need a place to live - I'd like to make that place comfortable, safe, and perhaps a bit luxurious (or at least not sparse). So I have a couple of options right now. I am trying to weigh the financially responsible thing to do with the most livable options for me and my family. I'd love to hear your constructive comments:Option One - Buy as much as I can afford (without emptying my bank accounts)
This means spending close to $600K (with the various funds mentioned above).
Pros - Good sized house (2500-3000+ square feet) in a well rated suburb. Close to airport, family. In short, my laundry list above.
Cons - It still won't be what I want. I would be spending everything I could comfortably do and still only be getting a 3000 sq. ft. house in a location with some of the amenities I would want, but not all. I might have to buy a house that is 50+ years old (as opposed to newer construction), it might be too "suburban", etc. In short, I'd probably have to increase my spend closer to 800K+ which I am unable to do. Option Two - Buy something to match my current situation
This means spending about $450K with the sale of my condo and my father's gift
Pros - Probably a smaller house (max 2500 sq ft) in a slightly lower quality suburb. Still close to airport family - as this is pretty much not debatable.
Cons - Amplified cons of #1 above. However I'm spending less, and won't feel as "strapped" - my savings stay where they are and work for me.Option Three - Buy something closer to what I sell my condo for
This means spending $200-250K with the funds from the sale
Pros - I will likely get a better mortgage rate than I have now. After taxes and home maintenance increases with a home I would likely be about the same as I am now. This is a totally comfortable situation for me financially.
Cons - Amplified even more of #1/#2 above. What I am looking at doing is just saying "to heck with a nice suburb" and to a lesser extent "to heck with a nice place." I would probably get a place in an ideal location (geographically) regardless of the quality of the suburb (as long as it isn't a dangerous neighborhood). The house would most likely be 50+ years old, ~2000 sq. ft. It would, in effect give us the room we *need*, but not the space of quality we would really desire.Option Four, Five, Six????-With Option Three I am likely discounting good schools under the assumption that we will likely only stay there about 5 years and move again once my kids are ready to start elementary. I can also get a better ARM rate under this plan. Of course this means in 5 years home prices and mortgage rates may have gone up again and it will only be more expensive to find an ideal place. Of course, at this time, I hope my savings will have also increased.If I am considering option #3 then I also have to think with a renter's mentality. If my goal is to stay there for only 5 years - should I really buy?
What about buying it flat out so I have no mortgage? Should I just pay $250K straight out or is the mortgage debt better to keep?
If I am going to buy it flat out - should I keep my current place to rent until the value recovers? Or just get out now.
Another concern I have is my job. I've only been here a year and don't plan on leaving - and so far they seem very happy with me. However if I were to lose my job not only would it hurt financially, but I may have moved to an area that makes commuting to a job in the City, or a more populated burb more difficult.I'm sure none of these scenarios are new...but they are new for me. I'm hoping to get some balanced opinions other than just the standard FWF approach of "just live in a crown vic in your family's driveway."Let me close by saying that my wife and I are mostly home-bodies...so a comfortable living environment has always been appreciated. I look at a house as a home and not an investment - that being said I don't want it to be a poor financial decision.

I am selling my loft condo. I tried to refi 6 months ago and it appraised at 330k. I paid 350k 3 years ago. I put it on the market and have a contract for 368k.The buyer is a very wealthy man. He is buying my unit and several other units all cash and turning them into rentals. He purchased the unfinished tower from the developer and is that building into a hotel. The developer is jumping ship due to slow sales. It is a very large complex and the ROI just isnt there for him.I am wondering if the hotel will add to the value of the condo units? I know my home isnt worth the amount being paid for it. Th neighborhood is declining but, its proximity to Manhattan (<3miles)makes it attractive. TL;DR: Big wig buying lots of property in my developer. Turning a huge building that is interconnected to all the other units into a hotel. It is a good or bad thing?

Plans that let you lock in tuition prices - bad deal?
Added on : Tuesday May 28th 2013 04:00:11 AM
Note: this article pertains to Virginia. Don't know about other states plans.In the light of seeing this article: (http://mobi.timesdispatch.com/richmond/pm_120066/contentdetail.h... I was thinking again about things like the VPEP, which lets you lock in tuition costs now. Maybe the education bubble isn't ready to pop yet, I don't know.VPEP info: http://www.virginia529.com/vpep/In short, you can lock in a year's tuition for about 15 grand now. The most expensive state school in VA is UVA: http://www.virginia.edu/financialaid/estimated.php - looks to be in the neighborhood of 13-14k a year.Pros:Prices locked in at near even now. With inflation and possible tuition increases, chance to save a lot of real dollars here.Cons:Child must go to a state school in VA. There's a lot of variables that could change - kid may want to pursue a program at a different school, could end up moving out of state, tuition bubble could burst..On one hand, part of me says if I'm going to pay for my kid's school, I should have a say of where he's going. However if he fortunately gets into a school such as MIT, CMU, etc.. should I really nix that opportunity?Anyone looked into these plans any deeper? It *seems* like there's too many variables in the con category to make it worthwhile.

Buying a Property in Las Vegas NV
Added on : Wednesday May 22nd 2013 08:00:06 PM
Hello Folks,I respect each and everyone here that gives great advice!Its a great place to learn a lot of things. I am in a situation and I need some inputs from you.My situation:
Place: Las Vegas NV
Myself: 29 YO, Married, no kids yet!
Pay: ~150k/year together
Current monthly expenses about $2100Currently, we own a small SFR property. We bought this in 2011 for a good price and I believe prices have gone up to a decent level where if I sell this, I can nett about ~$45k.Currently, we feel we need a bigger house (>2500<3000 sq.ft) house. The prices are raising day by day and the houses this size in nice neighborhoods are in the range $350k-$400k.We have saved up some money and I for sure want to put at least 21% to avoid the PMI crap!I see that prices are going up just because of low inventory and not really because of great economy (my opinion)??Questions:
1.Is this the right time to buy a property? Will we see any more dips to buy, stability in price in latter part of the year? (Its Las Vegas NV!)
2.Should I sell my current property and put all profits from it into the other or keep my existing (save more for 21%) (current monthly mortgage is $600)? Can rent it for Say $1000/month
3.The interest rates are low now, if I wait for say a year will it remain low? or is it poised to go up and I would feel I missed the boat?
4.Having a rental property and primary residence will also help us take mortgage interest deductions, we already pay quiet some taxes!
5.Or stick with my current low mortgage and invest savings in ETFs/Mutual funds/REIT's and Stocks? Not sure about the stock market's direction either!
6.Wait for 2 more years and save lot more and buy something like this @31, afraid, if the prices would have gone up considerably!
We like the idea of a bigger home, but we also enjoy our current $600 mortgage and saving money! As we are not that old we are not sure what the future holds for us.
Ultimately, I do want to have a place for myself and not loose money by doing so.What is best in long term?
Should I drop hurricane coverage on Florida HOI policy?
Added on : Wednesday May 22nd 2013 10:00:09 AM
This is a house in Sarasota I inherited and which I visit for a few weeks total, two or three times a year. Its about 20 years old, worth around $300K and is paid off. Renewal for homeowners policy is $2700, up from $2150 last year and I never had a claim. It was under $1000 just a few years ago BTW. I see that hurricane coverage makes up $1000 of the premium. Since this part of Florida isnt susceptible to, and hasnt had a direct hit, from a hurricane in 60 years as a neighbor said, what do you think of dropping that part of the coverage? Anybody here from that area that has done that?

Haven't had a Tree Branch Fall Thread in a while
Added on : Tuesday May 21st 2013 11:00:05 AM
Hopefully this is a bit of an olive branch of reiterating the "general principle" of who is supposed to pay for damage in this situation given the stuff in the Midwest the last few days and given the time of year, plus a little twist that I guess I have.Had some bad storms here yesterday morning (Missouri, not the Oklahoma stuff) and a big maple tree on my rental lost a bunch of huge branches which somehow managed to all end up in the neighbor's yard doing the following:1. Smashed a fence that I'm pretty sure is mine;
2. tore down a wire running from his house to his carport for electricity at the car port (luckily the wire running power to his house was on the north side of his property and didn't get hit); and
3. has basically filled his yard with more branches than I previously could have imagined.My understanding from doing some research (including searching through all the old "tree fell" threads here on FWF) is that if it was a "healthy tree" generally defined as "the neighbor never hired an arborist to send you a letter that your tree is dying and a danger to his property" and it goes down in a storm, then the neighbor where it landed needs to have his homeowner's insurance pay for it. Obviously the pragmatic side of it has always been that coming to some kind of compromise makes for good neighbors.Fortunately, while this situation sucks, we got a little "lucky" in that those three things are the only damage -- falling a little to the west would have crushed an above-ground swimming pool and/or his deck and a little to the East would have crushed his car port (and been frown town for the car in the car port). I tried to explain this to the neighbor and told him that I'd have a guy come and look at the branches, since I'd want to have the breaks from the tree cleaned up so the tree doesn't die anyway. Instead this guy called HIS insurance company and (not surprisingly) they said they'd fix it and bill me.The houses are in the City of St. Louis which has giant dumpsters in the alley for yard waste and branches (and lets you drag this stuff to the street for pickup after storms like this). I kept trying to explain to him that I'd be willing to pay for a tree guy to come out and chop up the branches (and fix my tree, since I think that climbing in my tree is probably the lion's share of that cost anyway) if he would take care of re-wiring this wire out to his car port (I don't want to pay an electrician for it, especially since I'm pretty sure that "run wire out your window to your car port" is probably not up to code) and if he would take care of smashing the limbs into the dumpsters and/or dragging them to the street.However, obviously neighbors never want to pay anything when this happens (I don't know that I blame him for that, since it seems weird that this would be his responsibility) and given that his is hispanic and doesn't really speak english, no matter what I say I just get "You Pay" from him. His wife and brother don't speak english very well, either, and while his oldest son speaks English very well, he is like 9 or 10 and so trying to explain this to him to translate is not working (he may be younger, I'm horrible with estimating age).At this point, I'm gassed and pissed off -- just full of hate -- I hate this house (it's a constant money sink), I hate this city, I hate this neighbor, and I'm tired of dealing with this. I could probably get this whole thing cleaned up for right around my $1K deductible, so it seems stupid to make a claim, but on the other hand, if the insurance company would handle MY damage (the fence and cleaning up the tree) along with dealing with my neighbor, so I can stop dealing with this, then it's worth well more than the $1K deductible, IMO.So, the question, I guess, is what do insurance carriers typically do here? I tried calling mine and the guy just kept asking if I wanted to make a claim, and I kept asking "If I make a claim for this, will my damage and my neighbors issues be handled as one claim with one deductible?" and he kept saying "do you want to make a claim and find out?" Seems like a fairly easy question, but I cannot tell for sure and would like some advice from any of you that may have dealt with this before.

I posted in another thread about my job situation, and that I will have to relocate in 12-18 months. My GF and own a house and decided to put it up on the market, not knowing how it was going to go. We ended up accepting an offer 3 weeks in. Inspections are done and we are set to close in 2 weeks. We rented a place down the street, same neighborhood, signed a 1 year lease on the house.The house has a pool, and we know that we are paying a premium for that. Rent is 1350. Comparable house without a pool would be in the 1000 range. We signed the lease on May 1st. The lease states that pool service and pest control is included in the rent. When we did a walk through (I took very thorough pictures/videos) - the property had a few issues (patio screen panel missing, place was dusty as hell, disposal did not work, mold on patio floor, grass/weeds in back yard waist high, etc.), but I saw the pool guy working on the pool, plumber on the disposal, so I thought the landlord would make the place safe/functional within a few days of moving in. Suffice to say, the place was a pig stein when we moved in. Whatever, we cleaned it up, did the yard, etc Today marks 2 weeks, and the pool is still not safe to go in (per the pool guy.) We have a 10 month old so we take this very very seriously. There is black mold in the pool. The pool guy has come every 3-4 days to add chemicals and try to clean it up, but it's not getting better. I spoke with the pool guy and he said the pool needs to be refinished, as the concrete is coming through the top layer/finish of the pool. He says the black mold will keep coming back until it's refinished. Chemicals to kill the black mold will have to keep getting added to the pool, several times a month. Each time they are added, can't go in for 2-3 days.I have sent e-mails to the landlord, and have not been satisfied with the answer. LL says water is just murky and will clear up in a few days did not mention the repairs/cleaning I sent another email with thorough pictures of the mold, broken screen, and pool, and have heard nothing back for 4 days now. I told her we are not those tenants but we are aware that we are paying a premium for this place and that I want to have the place safe and functioning for my family.I am paying for this pump to run 12+ hours a day (needs to run more to clear water up), a premium in rent, and cant even use the pool.
Do I not pay all the rent until issues are fixed? Do I hire my own people to fix it and deduct from rent? Do I take off a fair amount for the pool? $250/$350? - Thoughts?Oh and to top it off, the place is missing smoke detectors. Only 1 is present in a 2200ft house. Others are missing (you can see where they used to be in the ceiling, but they are missing). I know they are cheap and I can get one, but thats not the point. I believe thats even against the law in FL not to have sufficient smoke detectors in a rental.Basically, hope I'm not stuck with a Slum Lord... And if I am, need to protect myself/plan on how to take action when needed.
Neighbor's foreclosed house will be on a HGTV show pilot!

Asked the cameraman and he said my Neighbor's foreclosed house will be on a HGTV show flipping pilot! Will have to put up with traffic etc on our quiet street. on the "flip" side anyway to benefit from this? I hope it improves my comps. Just heard one of the actors announcing that it's their 100th rental, so might be another theme though.... Rental bubble just like the "flipping" bubble

Hello. I'm new here, except that I've been getting the FW Deals email for about a year now. Browsing the forums I noticed someone who had a thread like mine, so I was hoping to get some advice for myself. I had a bankruptcy when I was 20 that kind of haunted me for a long time. Always been terrible about paying my bills on time and so my credit is awful. When we got married she had New credit... not really good or bad. But it has gone down hill over the last several years. The house is in both our names and we have made many late payments and our credit took a hit each time.She's has been with the same company since she got out of college and has a really nice job that offers pretty much unlimited OT opportunities. She always gets 15 hrs OT every week. We have insurance through her company. They offer 401k but she has not activated it yet.I have a new job (less then 3 months) that pays well. No insurance offered. No 401k offered.
Married: YES
Ages: Early 30s.
My Education: HS
Her Education: BoFA
Children: Two (5 and 7 years old)
Job: Both Employed FT
My Take Home: $1,600 (Bi-weekly)
Her Take Home: $1,300 (Bi-weekly, Amount includes 15 hours OT she generates every two weeks, this is guaranteed and does not fluctuate)
Combined Take Home: $5800/mo
Region: Southeast
My 401k: $5,300 (I no longer work at the company where this 401k was started, and no longer contribute to it but I still get quarterly statements.)
Her 401k: $0 (Have not initiated her 401k yet... but her company will match 3% and contribute up to 6%)
Savings: $0
NO OTHER ACCOUNTS OF ANY KINDExpenses
My mortgage was an 80/20 split. Recently Wells Fargo admitted to fraud and I was part of a class action settlement that netted me $300. My interest rates are 7% on each loan. House is small 2 bedroom, 1 bath, 1100sq/ft. I feel like I was ripped off when I bought this house. It had major problems with the roof, the plumbing, etc. It was a rental before I bought it and man was it dirty! But I loved the neighborhood and the house has charm. Still, I feel like a sucker for paying so much monthly on this small house. I know I am not getting any bang for my buck here. Outstanding balance on house is: $75,000

Advice: Moving from So Cal to Boulder, CO
Added on : Monday May 06th 2013 01:01:17 PM
We are considering moving from San Diego, CA to cities within easy commute of Boulder, CO. I value advice from the FW community, so I'm looking for advice, gotchas, regrets, etc. The primary motivation is to save on housing costs.Background:
I'm early 30s, wife is late 20s. Both work relatively stable jobs at large companies. I have a confirmed position within the same company at their Boulder office, with same pay and similar responsibilities. Wife is still negotiating the move with her employer, who happens to have a branch in Denver. If it doesn't come through, she is confident of finding a similar position at another company in Denver or Boulder. We have a 1 year old. No relatives within 500 miles of either city. We plan to rent out our condo in San Diego, rent a place in Boulder or nearby cities, and potentially settle there. Please poke holes in my plan. Also really appreciate any ideas on which neighborhoods to pick, which ones to avoid, financial changes that I might be overlooking.
Ratio of property taxes to gross revenue for rentals
Added on : Monday May 06th 2013 11:01:17 AM
FWF,Did a search... couldn't find anything...I am in the process of learning everything I can about rentals and "passive income." Our property taxes just came out in IL and in talking with my neighbor (who does this for a living) he mentioned all of his units have a ratio of property taxes / gross revenue of 20%-28%.My question is: what is an acceptable ratio for these two variables? Mid-20% seems quite high to me.Note - My neighbor rents to college students in multi-unit homes and also believes he is assessed high.

Property Boundary Dispute
Added on : Saturday May 04th 2013 05:01:28 AM
Background:
My dad's neighbor has constantly claimed part of my dad's yard as his. (He moved in next door after my dad had lived there for about 10 years). All the antidotal evidence I have gathered (it's a borough in Pennsylvania with approx .2acres size lots) shows it should be my dad's property. However, neither side has wanted to pay for a survey. Today:
He spray paints lines approx 8 feet inside what we believe to be the boundary, and it looks like he's got a stack of 6x6's and he's going to build right down the yard. (He's already moved things in my parents garden which has been there for decades and we have old old pictures of it's location, but they have no proof he moved it). It looks like he's going to put everything in this weekend. since it's the weekend - Should my dad just
1. Let him do it (Document with a camera what he's doing?)
2. Call the police
3. Confront the guy (or put up some nice no trespassing signs and then video tape the guy taking them down?)
Yes he needs to call a Lawyer on Monday. I told him that about 10 times but he's pretty thick (can't say I'm much different).from a financial perspective I don't see an alternative to racking up some Lawyer bills. Confronting the guy hasn't seemed to work (I talked to him nicely once before, but that didn't seem to do much). i'll try to get some pictures up later.

Water leak damage to neighbour
Added on : Friday April 26th 2013 05:01:16 PM
Hello, I saw many smart advises on this forum and I hope to get one too. My problem is I had a leak in my house in the water supply line to my water heater. I brought a plumber and fixed a leak, but the next morning the owner of the unit underneath called me and said his house is completely destroyed and it caused by the leak from my unit. I came to his unit next day morning (i.e. 36h after the leak was fixed) and surprisely discovered that all his laminate floor is removed and hauled away and whole unit looks like there was a big team of construction workers worked there. My concern is the guy is trying to fool me - he says he called his insurance and submitted the claim, but I don't believe within 1 day he got an appraiser/adjusted coming, the adjusted made report and sent it to insurance company, the insurance accepted the claim, the owner brought a contractor and contractor removed and hauled everything away - and all this within one day only ? I had a deal with insurance companies and know the process may take a while My big concern he started the repairs long time ago and when I got a leak he decided just to use an opportunity and make me or my insurance company to pay for the repair. The damage to my unit is not so big and it's much cheaper for me just do it by myself and do not involve insurance, but my neighbour claims his damage is over $20K and tries to hold me responsible.Have anybody had similar situation or can give some advice ? Thanks in advance

Home improvements with best ROI
Added on : Monday April 22nd 2013 03:02:38 PM
I bought a home last year. It was bank repo that needed a lot of work. We re-did the bathrooms, put in new carpet, painted the whole house, put in a deck, and got appliances (they were gone). It's a great house, and I wasn't planning to leave, but we are going to have to move in the next year or two for grad school. I'm wondering what sort of improvements would give the best return on investment when the house is sold. Here are some options:1. The water heater, furnace, and AC are all over 20 years old. I am planning not to replace these if they don't go out, because I doubt we will recoup the money.
2. Yard. The front yard looks like hell, because I think someone over-fertilized it a few years ago. Large patches with dead grass, weeds growing, etc. What's the best, most cost effective way to make a yard not look like hell?
3. Landscaping around house. The area around the house has basically no landscaping. It looks like someone landscaped it 10 years ago, and then forgot to water whatever was in there. It's overgrown with grass, weeds, etc. What should I do with this? Bushes? Mulch?
4. Tree. Front yard had a tree that was cut down a few years ago. Should I plant another one?
5. Landscaping in backyard. The backyard is basically just a yard. Should I put in paving stones, or a patio, or something else?
6. Solar panels or other energy efficient items. I understand these have large tax credits. I wonder if the after-tax return on investment might make it worth it to install them?
7. Garden. I was thinking about putting in some planting boxes with flowers or vegetables.
8. Anything else you can think of that would have an outsized effect on resale value.The house was purchased in bad shape for $60,000. Comps in the neighborhood are around $90-120,000, and I'd like to work my way to the higher end of this spectrum if it makes sense.
Can I file insurance claim on new policy for old damage?
Added on : Saturday April 20th 2013 11:01:49 PM
I just bought a house that has roof damage from a hail storm 3 years ago. The owner could've gotten a new roof as many of his neighbors did but he never filed a claim. I have State Farm and my plan was to file a claim once a bad hail storm rolled through. But I was talking to a couple guys at work and they think I can file a claim tomorrow and get the roof covered. Besides the obvious moral dilemma, is this accurate information? My roof has one leak that's under control, so I'll wait for more damage before I file a claim.

Roof damage claim denial, HELP !!
Added on : Friday April 19th 2013 09:01:59 AM
I recently had a wind damage claim on my roof. The insurance company (Olympus) sent out the 1st insurance adjuster for inspection. I waited for a couple of weeks to get the results but did not get. Then we called and they told me they need send another roof consultant for re-inspection. Right after they completed the 2nd inspection, I received a non-renewable notice of my policy for next year because of potetial risk identifed. One week later, I received my claim denial letter. I called them to request the inspection reports. But they only sent me the 2nd one and tried to keep me from getting the 1st report. Their decision was purely based on the 2nd inspection report, which identified no wind damage at all. I asked why they would not release the 1st report, they told me the 1st one was not done properply. I guess they have to pay me for a new roof if based on the 1st inspection report. But they just don't want to pay, and hired another roof consultant instead of insurance adjuster, which they might have good relationship, to get my claim denied. ps. Many my neighborhood homes got roof replaced recently from their insurance. Any suggestions for the appeal? Many thanks!!

Was my low appraisal a set up?
Added on : Monday April 15th 2013 03:01:56 PM
Hi,Our offer has been accepted for a house in bay area. We are putting 30% down payment for that house. Our appraisal has come 25K less than sale price, just enough that deal does not fall apart. Our broker said that loan will still be the same, interest rate is also the same. Only loan to value ratio is different. For example, now our down payment which is intended to be 30% will be counted as 28%. I have the feeling that our appraisal was set up. Appraiser and broker/lender had a number in their mind so that they could get maximum out of us without breaking the deal. As we are putting 30% so deal does not fall apart, we still get the same rate which is for above 25% down payment but bank owns our house a little more.Appraisal report is completely wrong, I can't begin to tell errors and inconstancies in the appraisal. We have filed an appeal for the appraisal with detailed comments on errors in the report. It looks completely bogus. Comps are not really comps, all of them belongs to 7/10 school rather than 10/10 school our house is tied to. All of them are towards south of our place, different neighborhood. and sale dates are older than 3 months. Market has gone 15% up in last 3 months in this area. Are we being deceived by lender? Is it possible that appraisal was fixed by lender to own our house a little more? Another bank is willing to give us loan on same conditions but obviously there will be a new appraisal. Should we stick with this bank or go to the second bank? Suggestions are welcome.
Are We on the Right Path? FWers Assess my Finances & Goals
Added on : Sunday April 14th 2013 09:01:07 PM
Hi all--New FW user but longtime follower. Have used many of your tips in the past but haven't been on the forum in awhile. I'm looking for some advice on my wife and my financial situation, specifically with two things in particular- our home and our desire for children (more later).My wife(29) is a Registered Nurse and I am a Bakery Manager(30) for a high-volume location in a mid-size grocery store chain. Her W2 income last year was $62,000 and mine was $55,000. We have a 3bed/2 bath townhome we bought for 105k in May 2010, with a 30yr mortgage at 4.5% with a payment of $447.50 per month but we generally send an additional $500 towards prinicipal. Our balance is around $68,000~. The current value of the home is around 90k~ due to a few foreclosures and many up for sale in the neighborhood. My 401k is 50% in company stock and 50% in bond funds, with a balance of $60k. My contributions are 6% of salary, and 3% are matched at 100%. My wife has a 403b contributing 5% with a 50% company match, all in growth funds (Fidelity), with a $35k balance. We both have 100k life insurance through our employer.We have no credit card debt and she has $36k remaining in student loans and I have $55k for a degree I have no use for. Mine is at 2.5% and hers is around 4%. One car loan with a year left of $430 payments at 0%. Other car paid for.
My questions:
1) We'd like to move into a single family home because I will be moved to a new location soon, which is closer to her work. 3 bedroom homes generally range from 200-300k in that area. My concern is because of the depressed home values in our neighborhood (specifically the townhome community) we'd be taking a loss on the home around 35k after all is said and done. And who knows how long it would take to sell? Is renting an option? The HOA dues are $130 and we could probably rent for $900~ (booming town and community college nearby), so that is positive cash flow. However I am completely new to owning rental property. What liability would I be taking on and what is recommended for screening tenants? Should I hire a manager/management company?2) My wife suffers from infertility and we have spent $20k on three rounds of IVF to no avail (no insurance coverage despite a very good policy). We are now considering other options, including adoption. We are in the process of reading up on that...is a lawyer necessary? Should we do anything financially to prepare?3) Even though we have no kids or debts, how is our life insurance? Should we supplement with a term life policy (I know whole life and annuity/life blends are frowned upon here)? I know if my wife quits working to take care of potential children that I should get a much higher policy.4) Consider starting an IRA? Anything else we should be worried about?We have significant net income after our mortgage, car, and expenses. Our "guilty pleasures" are good vacations 2-3 times a year.

A Good Kind of Knowing [Kindle Edition]
Kathy Lynn Harris (Author)
LinkyBook Description
Publication Date: October 21, 2012
Imagine if Maeve Binchy grew up in Texas and wrote an old-school Larry McMurtry novel. Think Hope Floats meets High Fidelity.Thats how critics are describing A Good Kind of Knowingfrom the author of the highly acclaimed and number-one Amazon bestseller, Blue Straggler.A Good Kind of Knowing is a novel about the power of music and friendship, the relationship two-steps that go on in old Texas dancehalls, and the secret to finding just a little bit of common ground in a world full of distrust.What readers are saying:
Engaging, emotionally accurate, visual and funny.You pulled me right in.I feel like Im right thereI can feel the Texas heat and see the small town and the people who populate it.The characters are diverse and interesting, and each has a unique personality that adds to the entire canvas of the story.I know these people. Whats more, I like them, even despite their faults.My head is full of your story. It took me only two and a half days to read the book cover to cover, which means I was doing it every spare minute.The pace is comfortable, the characters rich and colorful. The events are anything but predictable; I was always wondering whats going to happen next.Sera Taylor's store is the one place in Lakeville, Texas, where individuals from all walks of life share a universal love for music and a respect for the gypsy-like woman behind the antique glass counter. Readers get a taste of the unorthodox connection between Sera and Mack, a young local cowboy and musician, and Seras previously untested devotion to her husband Bill. They learn of her relationship with Ruby D., the vibrant but misguided mother of five; with Louie, the shy high school band director; with Beverly, the religious, upper-class socialite; with Antonio, a local bar owner striving to make a life for himself; with Tommy Lee, a rich and directionless gigolo; and with Wes, the only out-of-the closet gay man for miles. As Sera battles a serious illness, the characters must overcome long-held stereotypes to save Seras store, and in the end, large parts of themselves.

John Wiley and Sons (Author, Other Contributor)
LinkyBook Description
Publication Date: November 16, 2011
Twenty years ago the very first For Dummies book, DOS For Dummies, was published. From that first printing of that first book came a series unlike anything in the publishing world, one that is global in both geography - we have been published worldwide in some 30 languages - and in coverage. No single volume can hope to summarize what thousands of titles have meant to millions of readers over the years, and we don't claim to do that in this e-book. Rather, this e-book celebrates the breadth and depth of the For Dummies series, offering 20 chapters - in honor of our 20 years - from a list of books compiled by our global colleagues. We are confident the chapters we've included give you a representative glimpse at why - no matter what the topic - our products have meant so much to so many by Making Everything Easier. We've grouped our chapters into five main parts:Part I: Dummies Classics, offers four chapters from some of our best-loved books. There's a chapter from DOS For Dummies, the book that started it all, and chapters from two of our best-sellers: Windows 7 For Dummies and Sex For Dummies. And just for a bit of spice, we've included a chapter from French For Dummies.Part II: Daily Dose of Dummies, offers the kind of lifestyle, self-help, and business skills that our readers have come to treasure. There's one of our famous Part of Tens chapters from Cognititive Behavioural Therapy for Dummies and a chapter from Meditation For Dummies to help you get your center. Chapters from Leadership For Dummies and Marketing For Dummies help you develop new skills for the marketplace.Part III, Fun with Dummies, celebrates life and all it has to offer. We've got chapters here from The Royal Wedding For Dummies, Guitar For Dummies, Digital Photography SLR All-in-One For Dummies, Puppies for Dummies, Knitting For Dummies, and Wine For Dummies.Part IV, Get Social, highlights how we help you grow and develop new skills. Chapters here come from Facebook For Dummies, Social Media Marketing For Dummies, and Dating For Dummies.Part V, Going Global, shares the worldwide appeal of the For Dummies series. These chapters from British History For Dummies, Canadian History For Dummies, and Rugby Union For Dummies were created by our global colleagues and authors and show how the For Dummies approach applies not only to whatever the subject is at hand, but also wherever the discussion is taking place.

The scuba diving resort of Sharm el Sheikh has been one of the worlds best kept secrets. It only hits the news in times of mishap but behind the scenes of this hugely popular and vibrant city are hundreds of ex-pats living the dream of a life in the sun.John Keans hilarious book, Lost Wife, Saw Barracuda True Stories from a Sharm el Sheikh Scuba Diving Instructor is an inside fly-on-the-wall look at the ups and downs of swapping the rat race for a life in Sharm el Sheikh. It is frank, honest and gripping in sometimes epic proportions, but the humor and magnetic appeal of Sharm el Sheikh and Egypt shines through every time in this beautifully written true story.Over a decade, this mild-mannered, ex-stockbroker has been chased by aggressive sharks, had a 737 airliner drop from the sky into the sea, broken four bones, been arrested three times and finally, blown up by terrorists.

His accounts are genuine, highly informative and very funny. Turning tragedy and mishap into humor is the books strength and youll find a laugh on nearly every page.The story is heavily upstaged by the comical antics of five, highly entertaining characters coming to terms with neutral buoyancy, hangovers and Egyptian taxi drivers. The legendary exploits of the latter are awarded an entire chapter where were introduced to, Airbag, Sharm el Sheikhs worst driver and in contrast, Joseph, who takes up the offer of a job swap, gives John his taxi and becomes a scuba diver for the day!The most dramatic chapter of Lost Wife, Saw Barracuda is the vivid, minute-by-minute account of dive staff involvement during the Sharm bombings in July 2005. This rare civilian insight of a grand scale terrorist attack shows the human cost of those caught up and the tremendous resolve of unlikely rescuers in preventing further loss of life.Despite occasional tragedy, Lost Wife, Saw Barracuda is a positive book that will thrill and entertain, portray scuba diving as an engaging and enjoyable sport and show readers the brighter side of Sharm el Sheikh in Egypt. Anyone can read and enjoy this wonderfully funny story.Its a must read if youve ever been even remotely near water!About The AuthorJohn Kean is a professional diver and writer who, following a scuba holiday to Egypt in 1997, gave up the rat race for a new life in Sharm el Sheikh.
