re: Homebuying - man117
[quote] He went on to say it's crazy bc someone that hasn't had a job in 10yrs could go get a salaried position somewhere and provide two pay stubs and he could likely get them financing. [/quote] This is exactly what I told Chase on the phone before I moved back to Louisiana. At the time my wife...

re: Homebuying - man117
[quote]Yep, at least 2 years and a P&L statement. And still, some cookie cutter lenders will reject you. Find a local bank that still makes its own mortgage decisions; you'll have better luck there.[/quote] What he said. I went through this, had 20% and Chase did not care. Was told I would need a...

re: Hood over Kitchen island cooktop - man117
I bought a $650 vent on Amazon for my island, but it's not installed yet. Hopefully it works well, if not I'll eventually have an outdoor kitchen for stuff I don't want to do indoors. Be aware that if you go with a high cfm unit (like a 1000+) you have to look into make up air systems which can get ...

re: Nest or Ecobee thermostat? - man117
I'm pretty sure there will only be a single thermostat in the one hall we have. From all of the input here, I'll think I'll go with the Ecobee. Pretty sure the room sensors would come in handy since the living room/foyer is 12 foot and the rest of the house is 9...

re: Nest or Ecobee thermostat? - man117
[quote]ok im' going to weigh in 1. if you have multiple thermostats and money is an issue, hands-down the amazon marketplace touchscreen honeywells at $70ish are the best bang for your buck. 2. nest sucks. tony has run the company into the ground and i would seriously research what's going on ...

re: If you had less than $20K to buy a car as an investment, what would you buy? - man117
Agree about E39 M5 and would probably vote for the E60 M5 as well (that v10 should be sought after in the future). Clownshoes (the S54 in particular) are not at the bottom of any curve. Demand (prices) for those are already high....

re: Are wages in CA really that much higher than LA? - man117
Housing is expensive and so are property taxes and income tax. Groceries are more expensive as well. Cars are probably cheaper due to the sheer volume that gets sold. Clothing and other stuff is normal. Wages are not 3-4 times higher. 1. Public school is fine. 2. Houses and lots on average are s...

re: Construction loan question - man117
[quote]This means your rate can/will fluctuate up or down after 12 years. Sounds risky or scary, but the average homebuyer stays in their house for 7 years anyways. [/quote] What he said. The 4.25 rate is not worth the ARM. When I was shopping Whitney basically put you in a 5 year ARM at 2.875% dur...

re: Construction loan question - man117
I think they mean that product would be an 12 year ARM in which the rate is variable the last 18 years. I am currently using Gulf Coast. Whitney was my second choice....

re: Car trouble: should I just buy a new one?? - man117
[quote]With all the resources available on the internet today I dont know why so many people let the dealer bend them over for repairs. You can repair most things yourself with a basic tool kit and an afternoon.[/quote] This is true although in this case it probably would be best to let a reputab...

re: Car trouble: should I just buy a new one?? - man117
[quote]Angry that it's $2k to fix the AC. [/quote] Shop around. The AC compressor on 99 Lexus GS finally failed after 16 years at around 220k. Went to the Lexus dealer and was told $2100 to fix. Bought the new OEM compressor and dryer online and brought to a shop that specialized in imports. Ended ...
