re: Books on the Debt of Nations - GoIrish02
Mark Steyn had some good ones. "After America" I think was the one I read recently. It will leave you scared and is a sober picture of how broke we are historically, with lots of economic data behind its conclusions. Representative Paul Ryan had very good videos on YouTube about our current an...

re: Anybody driven for Uber before? - GoIrish02
Be sure to include in your pro forma the cost of the inevitable uncovered auto liability claim and your subsequent bankruptcy when you get into an accident. Your auto insurer will rightfully void your insurance and deny all coverage for operating a personal vehicle as a taxi/livery service. Yo...

re: Borrowing from Friends to Buy a House - GoIrish02
Disability coverage, to replace your income if you cannot work. Why not just get a mortgage and buy the place now if you like it / if it's a good deal? There are too many variables over too long a horizon the way the seller is structuring the deal. Good luck predicting interest rates in 5 yea...

re: Insurance on Vacant House I'm Selling - GoIrish02
When you're not there to deal with the water heater with the busted drain pan in the attic that floods your entire house, then sits untouched for 3 months growing mold, or the rodents that you don't see when you're not there eat through your wires and your house burns down, tell your insurer you wer...

re: Cost of college projections are scary - GoIrish02
It's already here, Loyola University laid off 1/3 of their staff in late 2013, after their freshmen class size dropped 30%. (I'm not sure why they didn't plan for layoffs immediately in May when everyone sent in deposits.) CityBusiness had an article about staff lining up overnight to get lottery...

re: Expired judgment - GoIrish02
Tracking down the contractor is not really an option, as the contractor never responded to my dispute in 2007, filed this bogus claim instead, then sold the debt to a law firm for collections, who dropped pursuing the sum in 2010. The case history shows they tried to serve the petition at my pare...

I never received service of process and the court clerk gave me the history of the file in the small claims system.

Expired judgment - GoIrish02
I'm about to begin the process of refinancing a rental condo I bought & renovated in 2006.

I never got notice/service of the claim and the judgement was entered by default. ...

re: What is going Realtor %-rate? - GoIrish02
That's still pretty steep, though less than the 6% the realtors' cartel tries to tell you is "standard". Just because the Nat'l Association of Realtors says something is "standard" doesn't mean you cannot negotiate your own agreement. In greater New Orleans I've done 6% on the first $100,000 and...
