I agree with the post.

Extended periods of time where I've turned off the TV and put down the phone have resulted in me being happier and less anxious, no question.

A: yes, they have to avoid dual-agency and usually are certified negotiation experts to help get the price down and deal with other terms / inspection stuff. they will know the all important "absorption rate" for any given micro-market.

Bwahahahaha

A pullback has already been underway for a while in some of the hotter California markets.

Where?

That title is truly eye opening, who knew?

Thank you for sharing, I appreciate your honest account of the trip.

I was going to post a similar account of Paris from a recent trip, but so far haven't done so in any level of detail.

Should high profile democratic donors abstain from male prostitites more than others?

Similar problem exists in the automotive industry when insurance is involved.

And they wonder why premiums are off the charts

I'd be very interested to know what % of Google's work force support the Engineer's view?

The fact that the $900 bill didn't reach the homeowners is a little fishy.

Someone between the HOA company and the city had some special interest in this?

What your brother went through sounds like what the mansion owners above went through... A notice that never reached the intended recipient.

HOA, absolute hassle all around.

In the rental property I owned, the HOA required a $300 fee any time someone needed to move in or out. For what??

Despite paying $450/mo, they still hit all owners with two emergency assessments over the last 3yrs, totaling over $10K. My ROI was totally fooked those three years.

Like I said, even though I liked having the bushes trimmed and watered, I'll never be under an HOA again.

The workplace is not a forum to unload your personal beliefs or personal problems onto others.

Tell that to the Google CEO and Vice President of Diversity, Integrity & Governance.

Can't disagree there

If you bring politics, religions, or personal problems into the workplace, you are playing with fire.

It's Google that brought politics into the workplace. This guy was objecting to it.

Patrick, you are saying that Google brought politics into it with their diversity initiates?

Not sure I can object there. But everyone knows there's nearly 100% chance of employment termination by pushing back on a diversity initiative.

My 2-cents:

The workplace is not a forum to unload your personal beliefs or personal problems onto others.

If you bring politics, religions, or personal problems into the workplace, you are playing with fire. Keep it professional and focus on work.

This is just more gross Crony negligence for Liberal governed Zipcodes.

The irony is that there are some high profile famous liberals living in those mansions.

Yes Tenpoundbass,

I owned one property with HOA (sold last month) and decided that was my last. The rules, the complaints, the rising rates, the emergency assessments, the failure to take responsibility... enough is enough.

France failing to elect Le Pen was a surprise.

Essentially said "rape me harder" with the choice they went with. So strange.

Investor confidence is an incredible force for the economy. Funny how Obummer could never inspire much of that, despite his elitist mien.

Odd, didn't the stock market double under Obama?

No, you forget to mention that he sank it to 66XX in his first two months in office - March 2009 😛
