re: If you would buy real estate anywhere.... - Jp1LSU
There was a pretty compelling article that I read in Bloomberg the other day about the potential of a panic and it's relation to banks not doing 30yr loans on properties. I'm in the keys and I'm up over 100% so I'm tempted to avoid the risk and cash out. I'll keep the house I live in, but get rid ...

re: If you would buy real estate anywhere.... - Jp1LSU
It's properties in south Florida that I'm looking to sell to finance the purchase. I'm very concerned about the fear of the rising sea level having a major affect on properties down here....

Where's the place to buy now? Nashville is too late, Chattanooga, Detroit, Asheville (NC) all may have past their best time to invest days. Where the place to buy now where no one wants to live but is up and coming? Any thoughts?...

re: Any chance we get to Omaha or OK City this year? - Jp1LSU
This Board is so reactionary. Had the baseball team won 2 games this weekend the board would be filled with fans calling out those who don't believe, and predictions on who LSU will face in the Super Regionals. Get into the post season and anything can happen is the only answer I think fits your q...

re: Are you anonymous here or do other posters know who you are? - Jp1LSU
What percentage of users use more than one screename, have alters, or have changed their name multiple times over the years? It seems like there's a lot of that going on. I lost posting privledges once about 7 years ago for being accused of having an alter, but I was completely innocent. Back th...

re: Are you anonymous here or do other posters know who you are? - Jp1LSU
Oddly, I feel like TD comes up all the time IRL. Often LSU or LSU sports comes up in conversation and someone will tell me something that makes me respond with "yeah I saw that on TD". It never leads to hey what's your screename or I'll tell you mine if you tell me yours....

re: Are you supposed to tip the hotel housekeepers? - Jp1LSU
I'm not sure of the amount or the frequency. I've often wondered what is considered standard and depending on the country. I usually only tip housekeeping once a day and that's in the morning when we leave for brreakfast and make up the room. I've occasionally left money again or a note prior to ...

I have a term return of premium policy. It's pricey, but you get every single penny you paid in back when the term is over. It's like a non interest gaining savings account....

re: Turning a primary residence into a rental property. - Jp1LSU
I did this same exact thing not long ago here in Fl. I did tell my insurance company I was no longer the primary occupant and my insurance went up a tiny bit, but worth the peace of mind should the Tennants do something that would require a claim and I wouldn't want that failure to disclose to negat...

It's used for when we aren't there and she can reach us. She's 10 now and still doesn't bring it to school, to t...

re: Why do school teachers complain so much about being a school teacher?? - Jp1LSU
[quote]SS contributions are pointless anyway. I'm never going to collect, and even if I did it wouldn't be enough.[/quote] It's hard to believe that the govt will get rid of SS completely. After all, that is money they've taken from you over the course of your life. Not saying impossible, I just t...

re: Why do school teachers complain so much about being a school teacher?? - Jp1LSU
[quote]t's true. I think teachers count as state employees and don't contribute to social security as a result. Instead they get a crappy 503B that might grow to $60k.[/quote] It's different in every state. In Fl they take SS out of our paychecks and we can collect SS when we retire along with the ...
