re: Realtor: use friend or no? - Volvagia
I always felt it is always a very very bad idea to mix business with friends/family. There is an inherent conflict of interest that is pretty much only absolved if one party is using it as a cover for generosity so he gives favorable terms, or if both parties have great skills at compartmental...

re: cops posed for photo standing over black man dressed in antlers - Volvagia
Unless the story that this is a suspect that they used force as a police officer to get them to pose, this isn't a story. This looks like it is just three friends posing for a funny picture, and 2 of them happened to be cops and one happened to be black. I don't want to live on this planet...

re: Backing out of Purchase Agreement - Volvagia
I'm going to put in my purchase agreement that I must be notified in writing if they decline during the due diligence period and I must be addressed as "His Royal Excellency" in the written refusal. Failure to do both will result in penalies of 25% of the offer price to repair my damaged ego. ...

re: Mad Max SPOILERS - Volvagia
My main complaint with the film was the Terminator trailer before that basically spoiled the entire story but they are going to expect us to be all surprised about the "twist" in the actual movie. Oh, and the fact that Furiosa lived. Unless Max is an amnesiac Khan, she is going to need a l...

re: While I realize it is impossible to predict, can anyone - Volvagia
The general trend will be upward, but no one can know the rate of progression. If we did, then it will already be nearly that rate for your mortgage. The key word is "creeping" though. It won't move THAT far in six months. ...

re: Remembering Mike V (1990-2007) - Volvagia
The best attribute of Mike V isn't him going to games, but the fact he was easy to make roar at them. Ironic thing is that the upgrade to the current setting probably played a large role in killing him. Tigers are very territorial and he was already old when they took him away from everything ...

re: What is your opinion on credit? - Volvagia
The two biggest things that close the gap in your scenario is 1) tax benefits of mortgage debt. 2) equity Where is the 80k+ for the land and mortgage come from? If you rented till you had that cash, that is a HUGE sunk cost you will never see any upside from. If you got a smaller loan, th...

The problem with your plan is that it ignores the benefits of equity and tax ride offs. Also you can use a highly leveraged mortgage to add to your net worth significantly. All to live in a trailer for 20+ years of your life. ...

It is a financial tool, that yes, misused can cause great financial harm. Just because a table saw can cut your thumb off doesn't mean a table saw is a gore pit. Example: You have great credit, and can get a car loan at really low rates. You have assets to be able to pay cash for it, bu...
