Though, real estate in general is getting a bit out of hand IMO.

Our area is going nuts. Had some beers with my realtor buddy this weekend, he claims he could get us $500k for our house. Which, we paid $320 for 3 years ago and put about $70k into. That insanity for our area, though I told him we'd sell if he found someone stupid enough to pay $500k.

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

Yea, which is :fullretard: IMO.
Which is why we would love to leave San Deigo, so we can buy something like that, but pay probably half the price in most other cities.

This one isn't even that great looking, it's on the "wrong" side (east) of the 8 freeway, and it's barely 1000sqft :disgust:
That is insanity. This shit will not end well...... again.

:plac: profit would be in the $190k range. Our mortgage is at $270.

ACTUAL profit in the $50k range. Which is a solid return considering we're only out of pocket maybe $150k in interest, payments, upgrades, etc.

Sweet vengeance occurred yesterday.

Background: We have a neighbor that refuses to park in their (open) driveway. Toyota Previa (supercharged) always on the street. They leave it there so the snow plow plows in our driveway. The leaf sucker can't get our leaves in the fall because it's always parked in the way, etc. Wife even called the cops on it last month during a snow storm and it got ticketed and towed. Still, in the street it sits inexplicably.

We got a terrible ice storm the night before last. Ice followed by HEAVY rain. We were enjoying our morning coffee when we heard a terrible crash. We thought it was thunder...but I knew it was more...

The best part is that the tree that fell was from THEIR HOUSE. When the city came out to remove it, I was chatting with the lead guy and he said that tress that grow from a shared base like that fall ALL the time. He said the city usually posts notices warning people to have trees like those removed. He said they probably got a notice, but clearly ignored it.

It made our day. We had an impromptu gathering on our porch with other neighbors to watch the tree removal. Everyone was celebrating the death of the van. We even popped a bottle of champagne in celebration.
I haven’t laughed at such karma in a while :lolol:

She's actually on-board. She agrees that $500k is :fullretard:

We both want a smaller house, so this would work out fine. Small houses haven't gone crazy in our area yet.

in airboat land, there is so much new construction flying up it keep the old housing prices in check. Ours was $221k in 2015. It would be a "good price" at about $240k after 3 years. only house mods were 1k in gutters, 7k in AC, .5k in HWH.So about $8500 into it. We probably could list at $250k on high side and expect around 240 in real world. A few months ago, 250k was a solid realism.

So, they like habitually park their van in front of YOUR house?

:nope:
They did until :tits: got it towed last month. They started habitually parking it in front of our neighbor two houses down, where the tree landed.

I asked them a few times to park in their driveway, they just went on about how it's their right to park in the street, they've lived there for 30 years and it's never been a problem, etc, etc.

:rolleyes:

I HATE parking my cars on the street for concern of damage. Either someone hitting the car, or more drastically a tree falling on it. All of our cars are always in the garage/driveway. All of our trees in the back are well groomed and we took out a leaner like the one that fell.
:lolol: that is the best slice of karma ive seen dished out in a while. Did you offer them a glass of sparkling beverage?

Our streets are somewhat narrow, so there's only parking on one side of the street...and it just to happens to be our side. We too like it open for when guests come, but these :wap: :derp: s are insistent that they have the right to always park their van in the street. There's no reasoning with them because they claim to be within the bounds of the law or some shit. It was truly a glorious event when the van got crushed because their driveway was unscathed. If the van was parked there, it would have been fine.
Don't they? It's a public street. People park in front of my house all the time. :aintcare: Unless the car is disabled I'd have no legal recourse to get a car towed from in front of my house. Even then, the city would just come tag the car and the owner would still get another 72 hours to move it.
