    in general the poorer the neighborhood, the more likely it is to be cash flow positive

    couple of reasons for that:

    1. it's harder to actually collect the rent in poor areas (so being cash-flow positive may be only theoretical)

    Its interesting, for years a few posters here (particularly Ace and Ptieman) explained over and over to you why this was the case and why the disparity in yields in poor vs wealthy areas did not mean expensive areas were destined for a crash. http://www.patrick.net/Ten+Reasons+It%27s+A+Terrible+Time+To+Buy+An+Expensive+House

    Its a shame you couldn't admit this when the bottom came and it would be of help to those deciding what to do.

    Goran - glad to hear things went well for you. With the exception of a few times where you were trying to tweak Roberto or Iwog (a particular house in Concord surrounded on 3 sides by oil refineries and garbage dumps comes to mind), it seemed obvious to me that you were one of the normal people who came for information about the crash but would eventually buy and move on with life. For most posters you can track their first to last post and see nothing but a future life filled with sadness as they missed their chance to buy and likely would be stuck moving away or renting for decades. Its nice to see you return 4 years later with things have worked out in your favor.

    In particular, I find the Selective Service to be morally reprehensible an Unamerican. It is a violation of the First Amendment (freedom of religion), Thirteen Amendment (ban of slavery, and Fourteenth Amendment (equal protection),

    Interesting. Which of the three (very basic and fundamental for understanding the 14th) standards of review did you run this through when you arrived at this conclusion?
