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.

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.

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.

Never again!!

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.

I think in those 20 years I "once" gave a departing tenant their full deposit back as the damage done exceeded that. In the end I would only rent to single 40+ yr old women as they were the least trouble...Most of the time!


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?

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.
