    My neighbor has a condo in LA - told me the market's turned - his condo's been on the market 3 months, priced under the comp's and no bites.

    This may not be accurate, but at these prices, I know very few people that are able to buy.

    We bailed on ebay about 3 years ago because of the commission that paypal and ebay both take on each sale Not to mention, they always screw the seller during disputes.

    We've seen a lot of sellers get scammed. They sell/ship a costly item - buyer says they never received it, or it wasn't in the box. Paypal sides with buyer - refunds money - item never returned to seller. Seller hosed.

    Basically, the sellers get screwed every time. Seen it countless times.

    I just use CL. Free, local, and much less hassle.

    Roof, plumbing, electrical?

    My FIL had a plumbing problem where the line to the street had to be re-run. $8k later it was fixed. They had to bring out heavy equipment and dig up the street.

    I agree with this:

    It will be grist for the mill for the rest of your lives.

    Even if your FIL doesn't ever mention it, there will be an implied expectation. For example, "hey guys, spend Christmas with me." He knows that you owe him. If you say no, he will think to himself that you are ungrateful. "Look at all I've done for them, and they can't even spend Christmas with me."

    My FIL is super cool, but I'd never get into this type of agreement with him.
