Patience. Make the exact same offer in another month and see if they are still proud enough to reject you
I would not be so generous. At some future point in time sumbit a lower offer and see if they are still proud enough to reject you.
perhaps itâ€™s wishful thinking on my part.
It's wishful thinking on your part. Housing prices still have plenty of room to fall. Just wait until the summer buying season is over.
That's nothing comapred to the wasteful spending on the "Big Dig" in Boston.
I also would hit it.
I would love to see 7% interest rates, but it's not going to happen by then. Maybe if the Chinese dump all their USD reserves, or something.
I would love to see Section 8 housing discontinued. All it does is increas my taxes to support bloated real estate prices.
they could save a lot of money by dropping S-chip and welfare.
I live in the DC area and have had the same thoughts. I think prices are going down here, but slower than in other places.
I live in Baltimore and have made the same observation there.
Not one person I know who has gone on unemployment in the past six months has gotten a new job.
Last person we laid off, which was in September 2008, started a new job 3 weeks ago. Never ran out of unemployment, since it got extended.
The dilemma is that most of the news donâ€™t apply for the DC area. The job market is strong, people from one administration are replaced by others, soldiers are relocated, â€¦ So this create a demand for house but i still feel that houses are overpriced and thus the conundrum.
I agree. I suspect that if one wants to buy in this area, that you should wait. Prices will drop more eventually.
I think so far in the DC area it's mostly pricey condos that have taken a big hit. The rest not so much. Empty houses are all over the plaec though.
I would tell the 2nd lender to take a hike.
The way youâ€™ve made it acceptable to hurl any insult you like at public officials.
So you are sick of conservatives doing what liberals have been doing for decades?
So all of a sudden, it's NOW a bad thing?
IMO, turn about ia fair play.
I don't belive the part about there being 7 offers on the house either.
I would think that if you looked at the financials of apartment REITS, you might get an idea as to how profitable it is.
I think if we simply executed everyone who dafaulted on their loans, we wouldn't have so many deadbeats (sort of like the opposite of what Chris Borden is suggesting).
We are no where near bottom, at least in the Baltimore - Washington DC area.
I interpreted the We will not need a bailout, statement as meaning that they probably will need a bailout,
1. What do you tell people who are currently thinking about buying a home and why?
Better deals will be available if you are patient.
2. What is is the general area you live in?
Baltimore City 21230
3. Do you currently own a home?
she had an â€œeasyâ€ air to her
So how did that part work out?
A lot of people are moving in with friends or relatives, or living in their car, or leaving the country.
If I were going to cheat the system, I'm reasonably sure that I could get away with much more than $90,000.00
I saw that on the news and I would hope that they stay someplace else on the weekends, or something.
wish i was lucky says
So my next question is - who is/was supposed to live in all these monster homes that were built? What was the master plan??
The mcMansions of today will become the multigenerational housing of tommorrow, as nature intended. When you really think about it, McMansions are perfectly suited for this task.
Patience! I was in the LA crash in 1990-1996. It took forever. Donâ€™t even think of getting in to this market until 2013. You will see mouth watering bargains then. Now, it seems like a fair price, but you want an outstanding price. It will come. Just not for a few years. Keep your cash.
I agree with the above statement.
This is what Las Vegas has to differentiate itself: legalized gambling, ritzy restaurants and hotels, and entertainment. These are easy to copy, and I suspect as cities, counties, and states grapple with declining revenues, they will entice the tribes to create such venues in their backyards, to keep the (shrinking) discretionary money for such fun at home.
Here are a couple of other things that Las Vegas has to differentiate itself from other regions: itâ€™s remoteness from itâ€™s customers, requiring expensive and energy-intensive travel to get to Vegas, which â€œsubtractâ€ from the discretionary money that could be spent having such fun closer to home; - and a water shortage.
At least Atlantic City has a nice beach.
Please stop referring to a socialized medicine bill as "reform". If it actually had any reform in it, it would be things like tort reform. The only likeable things about this bill is the provisions for existing conditions and the cross state purchasing ability. All you really would need is for one state to allow the sale of a bare bones policy and anyone else could buy it (and they will).
Donâ€™t count on cross state purchasing to survive the final cut by the way.
That's probably true. Anything that could potentially reduce the cost of health insurance isn't likely to be in the final bill.
I am expecting 2010 to be, for the most part a continuation of 2009. In other words, even higher unemployment and no real economic recovery.
What have comparable houses in that area sold for lately? What's the condition of the house?
In the last 3 months weâ€™ve fired 2 techs and hired two techs. The two techs we fired were making more than $20/hr. The two new hired techs are making less than $15/hr. This isnâ€™t the kind of thing that gets reported.
No, but when they report that tax reciepts are down it shows up there (and probably no place else).
They need birth control! I've said it before and I'll say it again, they knew his job was in jeopardy at the time of conception of baby #6!!! Can someone say IRRESPONSIBLE! Live within your means, if not, don't ask for help if your overextended!
I want to send a package of condoms to this greedy family. Where do I send the package? May be some doctor should neuter this guy free of charge.
Another useless observation, the number of price reductions.
How about a headline â€œmore sellers start out with realistic pricesâ€ ?
Class sizes are supposed to be 30-40 students per class. Teachers make way too much money these days, and having all these excess teachers is really only padding the pockets of their unions.
