Would an I/O runabout Ski and Fish work in bays? - GrantTheFan
Here is my line of thinking on buying a new boat. I've always enjoying cruising/ski'ing and hanging out at the sand bars in Lake Maurepas. I also like to fish, but I'm not hardcore about it. My old Bayliner is on its last legs and I was thinking of buyer another similar inboard/outboard runabout,...

re: Car Buying/Trade In Process - GrantTheFan
The book may say it's worth 25k retail, but that seems pretty high, you have to think of the market. The 2014's hit the market in a couple weeks, making this one 8 years old. A new one can be bought for around 35k. I know it's very low miles and may be showroom condition, but nobody is going to p...

re: Family Member's Dilemma - GrantTheFan
Sounds like he got hooked into a franchise that sold him a lot of overpriced equipment and took his profits in monthly royalty payments and advertising fees. Tell him to file and never look back. It's no big deal. I have no idea why the SBA jumps on qualifying so many franchises as eligible, most...

Most home games now aren't worth going to.

Somebody is always trying to get rid of a couple tickets, even for the Alabama and Florida typ...

re: First time Home Owner, need some info OT(UPDATE PG 8-Need Help) - GrantTheFan
Well Longhorn, don't look at it as they're on "their high horse" at all. They have a house to sell and before it hits the market you expressed interest. You could expect up to a 5% discount (what it would cost, roughly, to sell it through a realtor) without them covering any closing costs. Otherw...

That's a pretty good rate, they've been easing up in the last week or so. BoA will probably be your cheapest route since you're with them now and they are waiving some fees/costs for $1,800 in closing costs. GMFS and/or a banks/brokers are likely to be in the $2,500-3,500 range on total closing co...

re: Margin Call - GrantTheFan
You borrow the money to buy the stock(s). Most brokerages have some minimum account value threshold before they'll allow you to have margin privileges. There can be varying levels of margin allowed, but it's generally a 30% minimum, so for example if you have 10k in equity, you can margin up to 7k...

The customer gains the ownership stake with each payemt, so to refinance a new 'trust' is set ...
