The straight gain analysis is great if you are considering buying a vacation house that you won't use as an investment. For a personal house, not so much, for obvious reasons. Anyone who makes investment decisions based on such a simple calculation might as well just flip a coin.
Buying a house is a little like running a business, albeit one that doesn't necessarily require too much attention. It should be evaluated as such.
That guy should be fired for writing such drivel. He starts by saying the 15yr mortgage is superior to the 30. Then, he admits that it's not the product but that people are paying too much for a house. He could use the same argument to show that renting is the stupidest decision, as it is effectively a infinite year mortgage.
First of all, I don't really care what happens with this fraternity. But I'm curious if this is really a free speech issue. Does the University own the land and / or house? Is there a relationship like an HOA where the University has some control over the upkeep of the house, and what is displayed?
Huckabee and Santorum are just there to give the religious wing-nuts some hope that someone out there is trying to represent them. They might be letting their dark side win over and find themselves supporting Trump. But deep down, they know they want someone who actually believes in the God that they worship.
We should show gay people tolerance and love, but we shouldn't be celebrating their condition as being ideal or even equal when it comes to raising families.......which used to be the main reason behind the institution of marriage (at least in terms of the interest of the State).
Separate, but unequal. Tolerate them and show them some love, but not as equals - more like the way you would love your dog or even a slave if that were still allowed. Yes, that sounds about right.
What's the fucking big deal. If the law says she goes in jail, put her in there. She didn't go to jail b/c she refused to give a marriage license. She had plenty of options for avoiding jail if she didn't want to martyr herself.
I love this. Apps are starting to ruin the web. Yes, apps can provide some things that the web does not do well, but if I'm on the web, give me some fucking html content. Don't push your stupid app, and make logins optional.
In Reston (burbs outside of DC), housing cooled off a lot last summer. In our neighborhood, sales have of two nearly identical houses were 560K last spring and 510K this spring. I was surprised at the sale price this spring.
