Proximity to Tony's?

Stumble-home distance?
Totally. But it's a bit further than we are now.

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.

Ramp is good for loading pallets. :disgust:
:lolol:

Then, when the last pallet is loaded, ramp can be disassembled for next pinshit project.
Good point. Ramp will need to be saved.

Its in a condo corp, so we added to the purchase agreement a conditional clause that says that the buyer (me) must find the condo terms and conditions satisfactory. The current owner (who also controls the condo corp because he built and manages/rents/sells the houses) has the usual snow plow/gate pass fee of $70/mth, but added some erroneous $2k fee and nobody knows why. When we asked about it the listing sales guy appologised for his mistake. Apparently he sent the old conditions doc. Then he took up all of today to send a new one, and I still dont have it.

TL;DR
The condo corp owns the most houses in the complex and has the most votes to allow for any changes and at any time as long as they are voted upon. If they decide to charge everyone $2k they can. It doesn't hurt them because they pay themselves, and shmucks like may pay them.

Also, they made up a rule in that doc that I can only rent long term (1mth), and will be charged $1k if I chose to rent my place out weekly or for a weekend. Apparently that is :wrong: too now that I pointed it out and i don't need to worry because the revised document has that revised.

So tomorrow I'm going to exercise my right to pull the plug and get my deposit back.

Still TL;DR
Fuck those guys.

ah typical condo scheme fuckery.

My uncle had a penthouse beach condo. top floor. only 4 massive units on the top floor. His fees were around $3k PER MONTH....

He paid cash for the actual 4 bed unit. But still pissed away 3k ea month in fees. They tried to levee some more stuff and he ejected.

I was holding my tongue on typical condo fuckery. But yeah, #fuckcondos unless you write the rules.

That is a fucked situation IMO.

FWIW, short term rentals (less than one month) are being scrutinized everywhere lately. Cities are mad that people are renting out space without the city getting its cut (rental permits, etc) and residents are mad that "tourists" are coming in to their neighborhoods, being noisy/disrespectful/etc, and "ruining" their living experience. My city passed an ordinance about short term rentals, and I know our favorite Michigan city, Traverse City is doing the same. They're going to make short term rentals quite a bit harder, and that's going to spread. If short term rental is something you're counting on to afford a new property, proceed with serious caution.

Brad,

1.) It's an 05 base vert which I sold at almost the same price that I paid for it 3 yrs ago, this isn't some :fancyroundel:

2.) It's not the only vaca property in existence. I will look at freeholds from now on

There will be time in your life, much later, when you are done spreading river rock. Forever. And the idea of a place your can walk away from for a month with the turn of a key will have a little better ring to it.
