I had more shenanigans last night. It seems that craiglist has a very low bar for reading comprehension and general understanding of the home buying process. My add was flagged down for (prequalified buyers). Then I spent several hours reading on why saying pre-qualifiers was discriminatory . Ant that one should not need to be prequalified to buy a house. Now i am not sure if this is just related to normal Seattle socialist dumbassery, or if it really is the education level of this nation. I suppose it could be both.
normal Seattle socialist dumbassery..
Yeah sounds like real discrimination, checking to see whether you can get a loan. I guess you need to add race color creed and sexual orientation to the add.
|Go ahead punk, make my day|
You need to add a line that says you DO discriminate based on color. "If you ain't got the green, you ain't being seen."
I would like to apologize to anyone I have *not* offended. Please be patient. I will get to you shortly.

No need to be pre-qualified. Simply provide proof of funds.

Back at it again. 4 realtors with appointments to show the house, all are no shows. I politely explain the mls box is not here yet, so i will let them in. Pls let me know if they are not going to arrive, or be late arriving.
Not one message.

Years back we were renting out 3 houses. 2 were fully paid, one we still owed money on.
In about 2 years we went through 5 renters. Only one of them paid on time, did not cause problems and kept the place clean. He also shoveled the snow off the sidewalk in the winter. We sold all 3 of the rental properties, and vowed never to rent again! And have not. Repairs and insurance cost more than the whole shit sandwich is/was worth.

Well We have accepted an offer. The inspection happens this week.
The sale closes this friday!
The buyer has been awesome. My realtor has been awesome. Glad to be rid of it.
That's great to hear!
Um, point of order. Don't Realtors = Brokers?
|Not as lean, not as mean,|
Still a Marine
Realtors are the listing/buying agent
Brokers are the loan agent
Appraisers are "independent" of the two, and either an angel or devil depending on their assessment of the property.
I shall respect you until you open your mouth, from that point on, you must earn it yourself.
Of course, there's the other side of the story: I rented a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment with one-car garage. I was the ideal tenant. In 2-1/2 years I lived there, I called for service only twice: one, a bird got caught in a vent, and two, my A/C froze up. I never hung any wall decorations, never had a complaint lodged against me, nor did I lodge any complaints.
Yet my landlord raised my rent every time the lease was up, finally pricing me out of the rental market. I wound up buying a condominium, and now a house that I STILL pay less today than I did when I was renting!
When you have ideal tenants, isn't it worth trying to keep them?

Ah okay, so mortgage broker.
Yes, I try not to raise rents on my good tenants. But it's a double edged sword, as ALL expenses keep going up every year- taxes, insurance, etc. (those 2 seem to go up 10% a year). I have one tenant that's been there since 2014, they're paying $1135 a month (they started at $1100 and only raised them once $35 a month at year 3). I have another tenant that moved into the unit next door which is identical, they're pay $1350 a month. So you tend to lose a lot of income if you don't raise the rent and your profit margin shrinks because your expenses keep going up every year. So it's a fine line of keeping a long term tenant happy, and paying your own bills.
We ended up listing the home with our agent who helped us buy it. We had a contract with in 15 days. Mostly due to the buyers work schedule. (brain surgeon)
This thread is why I paid a property management company to manage our rental. Selling it was still a great day in my life.
