OT 18: Anti-Social Distancing

Yea I think that's a fair assessment. It seems like Covid hit suburbia prices HARD. Urban prices are dropping out here and suburbia spiking... no one wants to be around drug needles and feces... GO FIGURE! In the North East there is a distinct split in the suburbs - mid priced (400 to 700) homes ar...

this may not be sustainable... :yikes: I hope not... it's been a steady 5-10%/year climb since like 2008, this COVID shit has accelerated the rise.

Most places charge you 3% at least for mortgage + at least 1% for property tax + at least 1% a year for Repair and maintenance ~ 5-6% MINIMUM annually to have a house. Are you saying your house is out appreciating these carrying costs? Yes, bought for $327K, now worth ~$370K eight months later. thi...

I'm not familiar with the :waxer: shit but my B&W bookshelf stereo speakers (DM303 is the model IIRC) are now around 20 years old and still sound great. They were around $200 used for the pair in 2003. Paired with a random cheapo Yamaha HT sub for a 2.1 setup it's pretty fucking decent. With a real...
