re: Real Estate Question-Crazy to sell or Crazy to keep? - stevengtiger
Personally, I would want to get more out of the rent. $1,200 seems a little low for a house of that value. I would like to get closer to $1,400 for a $160K house, at a minimum. You're not losing money here but you're not making enough to really put back much for repairs/maintenance. I would prob...

re: Occidental at Xcaret - stevengtiger
Stayed at Grand Princess Riviera in Sept 2016 and loved it. Huge resort with plenty of good food and bars. Beach was nice and pools were too. Close enough to Playa and they have a shuttle that goes to downtown Playa and back a few times a day. Stayed in a swim up suite and it was really cool. IM...

[quote]You'd need trees no closer than 20-30 feet to operate[/quote] The amount of work would be staggering. It would be quite a sight to see that many trees taken for Bistineau. Crazy to think that it is starting to come to that type of discussion. ...

It is interesting to see what people are capable of in that regard but until they come up with a way to fight it "genetically", the lawnmower is just a redneck hobby. ...

[quote]Maybe that's the answer - cold. Salvinia probably never quit growing this past winter.[/quote] A HARD freeze would do wonders. Like early 80's, freeze the Red River cold. If the lake was down and we had a freeze like that, it would help tremendously. Since we can't count on that at all, ...

[quote]I think there will be a remedy some day though[/quote] Someone needs to find a genetic remedy and that will happen one day, hopefully soon. A fungus or bacteria will be developed that will kill it. Hell, low salinity water will kill it, but Bistineau cycles water every 60 days or something...

re: Information for my fellow Real Estate Investors - stevengtiger
[quote]and that is for the buyer at his expense.[/quote] We have actually paid for 2 appraisals for buyers. They made full price offers and asked for it in the contract. I guess our thought is if someone makes a full price offer, a few hundred bucks for appraisals is not a big deal. ...

re: LDWF to drawdown Bistineau May 1 - stevengtiger
It is as bad right now as it has ever been in April. My dad has been going to the meetings and the level on competency trying to figure out the problem is extremely low. They decided to drop the lake May 1 with no plans on when to raise it, no plans to add more spray boats and no plans with how to k...
