re: Lafayette Alarm Companies - LSUDbrous90 on 9/10/19 at 10:30 am
What equipment do they use? I am looking at simplisafe right now as my non-local option and only thing that worries me is they are a little slow on getting up to speed with automation with other products....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
Lafayette Alarm Companies - LSUDbrous90 on 9/5/19 at 10:25 am
Just bought a new home and long story short I need the home rekeyed and a new alarm/monitoring service immediately. Who is the recommended go-to for alarm services and monitoring in the Lafayette area? Home is already wired and all of that....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (8)
re: Bought home with walk-in bathtub - LSUDbrous90 on 9/5/19 at 9:08 am
[quote]We put one in the MIL apartment when we built our house. It was around $5k from Luters IIRC. Could you leave it in? Maybe tile the walls and put up a glass wall with door? Not sure how the door on the tub and glass door would interface though. Ours is built in and sheetrocked down over the ed...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Bought home with walk-in bathtub - LSUDbrous90 on 9/5/19 at 6:50 am
[quote]Well perhaps there is a chance you can get it out in one piece. Just so you will know the place we bought ours from, Luters Supply in Tylertown, MS, has the largest supply and variety of these tubs in the South. If I recall correctly, cheapest ones were about low to mid $2,000. Most expensive...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Best online savings account? - LSUDbrous90 on 9/4/19 at 7:50 am
[quote]Capital One 360 Money Market offers 2% if your balance is above 10k. That would be your least-hassle option since you already have a cap one account.[/quote] All my other accounts were with 360 so I put mine in their money market account. The ease of moving the money around and having it ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Bought home with walk-in bathtub - LSUDbrous90 on 9/4/19 at 7:47 am
Thanks for the heads up. Tub was 2'8" ish wide when I measured the other day so not super wide. The guy has dementia so I don't think he has any idea how it got in there....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Bought home with walk-in bathtub - LSUDbrous90 on 9/3/19 at 10:57 am
Yeah 5k+ was a guess but I am seeing they can be much more than that. The elderly gentlemen I bought the home from is loaded so I would assume he did not buy a piece of crap. Guess I will just post it for sale on facebook or something for $1,000 and see what happens?...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
Bought home with walk-in bathtub - LSUDbrous90 on 9/3/19 at 10:13 am
Wife and I recently purchased a home from an elderly gentleman and in the main guest bathroom is one of those walk-in bathtubs for the elderly/disabled. Being that this is the main guest bathroom we want to make it functional by putting in a shower/tub combo. How the hell does one remove this thin...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
re: Reminder that I-10 West is still closed between Baton Rouge and Lafayette - LSUDbrous90 on 8/27/19 at 7:31 am
Passed it this morning around 630 and it is still nowhere close to being open. Still tons of personnel out there and all of the wreckage looks like it has not been touched besides extinguishing the fire....

re: Opinions needed on Roth vs Traditional IRA - LSUDbrous90 on 8/26/19 at 11:32 am
1. Go roth if you believe you will make more as your careers progress. 2. Always contribute to your 401k up to the match. 3. Paying off student loan debt v. maxing IRA is somewhat of a preference in your case. At 5% and 7% you can expect around that in the market so if it was me I would wan...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Hilton Grand Vacations (Timeshare?) - LSUDbrous90 on 8/21/19 at 8:40 am
Wife and I took advantage of a promo to go to disney world for 4 days and 3 nights for very very cheap. Catch is you have to meet with them for a 1-2 hour presentation on hilton grand vacation timeshares. They are very very good at what they do but we were expecting this and already knew its an aw...

re: Home Mortgage Rate Change - LSUDbrous90 on 8/20/19 at 7:47 am
[quote]I would wait. The experts are predicting at least 2 more rate cuts. [/quote] I can't just wait at this point. We are under contract and want the home. And it would not make sense financially to refinance short term even if the rates dropped a little. [quote]You’re not going to stay i...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Home Mortgage Rate Change - LSUDbrous90 on 8/19/19 at 2:00 pm
[quote]They will waive that point fee if you ask for it. Also, paying $1150 isn't much on 300K compared to the savings on the rate. I would go for it.[/quote] My thoughts as well. Over the course of the loan I'm looking at saving 22k in interest going from 3.875% to 3.5%. I know its the rig...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
Home Mortgage Rate Change - LSUDbrous90 on 8/19/19 at 1:46 pm
Would appreciate any insight as this situation is somewhat unique and I need to make a decision quickly. We are borrowing 300k and are locked in at 3.875% (locked in July) to close on a home in 3 days. Spoke with our broker this morning and he is now able to get us a 3.625% + appraisal fee ($450) ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (5)
re: The 28 Percent Rule - LSUDbrous90 on 8/13/19 at 6:58 am
Think the general rule is 28/36 in that no more than 28% of gross income go towards house and 36% go towards all debts. I just went through this a few months ago and 28% still seemed like a ridiculous amount of house for me and my wifes age and current income but we have 0 debt elsewhere. I would ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
