re: Anyone built a pool? Looking for info on financing - Bayou Tiger
[quote]But I do agree, it's stupid to finance it, what am i thinking??[/quote] :lol: That's kind of a strong view, but it underscores why I don't discuss finance with acquaintances and pick my spots on an anonymous message board. It really depends on an individual's personal finances. Over the y...

re: Anyone built a pool? Looking for info on financing - Bayou Tiger
I built a pool and outdoor patio and financed with a HELOC. The kids are the perfect age to enjoy it, and the outdoor kitchen is great for family evenings. However, in no way is the pool an investment. We are in the house we plan to stay in, so I bit the bullet and spent money on something we enj...

re: Best Pool and Outdoor Furniture - Bayou Tiger
:lol: This thread is meeting my expectations, but I figured it was worth a shot to ask. The background is that in the past when I have tried to save money on outdoor stuff - furniture, grill covers, etc it seems to fall apart in the LA and TX heat and humidity. So I would rather spend a little...

Best Pool and Outdoor Furniture - Bayou Tiger
Im terms of price and quality, what are the best brands for outdoor furniture? Right now I'm researching to find some stuff that is the best value - good quality at a good price. We are finishing up with a pool and patio installation and looking to get table, chairs, storage stuff, etc. Ideall...

re: Getting ok to be ok with spending - Bayou Tiger
Enjoy the feeling. Once you get married and have kids the money seems to just spend itself. I saved really agressively early in my career with the expectation that my savings rate would taper over time. It has worked out fine so far....

re: Hypothetical situation - Bayou Tiger
I am financially conservative in some ways but have been pretty successful building net worth over the years. Incidentally, I will also be 37 years old a few months from now. My perspectives are as somebody who grew up middle class and is now upper middle class, so I can't comment on what "rich peop...

[quote] I did the same thing. I used my real name as my first screen name when I first joined TD but quickly learned that's not a good idea so Chicken allowed me to start a new account with my current screen name.

re: Texas Property Tax Protest - Bayou Tiger
It's probably not as common in states with lower property taxes. When I lived in Louisiana my annual property tax was around $1000. Now that I live in Texas it is over $15000 per year. So naturally an entire niche industry has evolved in Texas around saving mere percentage points on these taxes....

re: Texas Property Tax Protest - Bayou Tiger
Jubally is the best option in the Houston area. It is a flat $75 fee instead of the ridiculous 40-60% of tax savings that the others charge. You get a free estimate of your tax savings, and if you pay you get the exact report to hand to the property tax folks in the format that they need. Jubally's ...
