EDIT:

Wow, lots of responses! First off, I should have noted that as a Realtor I focus primarily on buying and selling – not renting. I’m not very familiar with the rental market so I may not be much help for those questions. I’ll answer what I can though.

I'm working my way through your questions as quickly as possible. I’ll be in and out today, so please be patient. What I can’t get to in the afternoon I’ll try to get to tonight. Thanks!

EDIT2:

Signing off for a few hours but keep posting questions and I'll be happy to answer them as quickly as I can when I return this evening!

The Nexus 4 actually has more screen real estate than the Nexus 5

Fri, 01 Nov 2013 02:31:30 -0700

Guys, look at the first 2 minutes of this video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6QHkv-bSlds

Like all 5 inch 1080p devices, the Nexus 5 reports to the Android OS to be a 480PPI device while it is truly 440PPI. This actually means that the Android OS thinks these displays are physically smaller than they are, and UI elements on 5 inch phones are needlessly large (by UI guideline standards).

As a consequence, the actual screen real-estate available to apps (expressed in density independent pixels) is 640x360 compared to the Nexus 4's 640x 384. So the Nexus 4 has just as much vertical real-estate while having more horizontal real estate.

tl;dr: Because of the way Android works, the Nexus 4 can fit more stuff on its screen at once compared to all 5inch phones out there.

The necessity of real estate in plans for FI?

Wed, 28 Jan 2015 05:39:25 -0800

I'm currently reading the Automatic Millionaire Homeowner by David Bach. I think a lot of his statements are problematic, but I can't deny that the majority of people who've become FI seem to have a heavy involvement with real estate. Maybe it's just confirmation bias though. Therefore, I'm wondering if anyone has become FI (or is on the way to becoming FI) without significantly personally investing in real estate (I don't consider REITs, just people who own property and are landlords or use a property management company).

If real estate is necessary (or at least, makes the journey much shorter), how does someone with absolutely no knowledge go about getting started? Is it just a matter of having the discipline to save up a down payment and then hiring a property management company? Or should you learn how to do home repairs and buy fixer-uppers? If the latter, how do you learn those skills, assuming you don't have any friends or relatives to show you how -- do you just sign up for classes at the local community college?

Edit: I'm in Canada -- does that change your advice in any way? I live in one of the big cities with heated markets, and some people are predicting a cool off if oil prices stay low, which is why my interest has been piqued.

Edit #2: I've seen some interesting answers. Here's another discussion point: How long will it take (or did it take) for you to reach FI? For further clarification: a) did you use real estate? b) how big was your portfolio when you reached your goal? c) what's your current "passive" monthly income?

Feel free to answer some or none of those questions if they're too intrusive!

Mum telling off an idiot real estate agent.

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 06:31:39 -0700

I'm helping my mum buy a house at the moment and most of the real estate agents have been pretty good, but today we dealt with a real idiot. First, a little set up.

There will be 4 people living in the house: my mum, my grandmother, my husband and me. I'm my grandmother's full time carer and my husband and I can't afford a place of our own with room for grandma, so we live with my mum. As a result, we're after a 3, preferably 4, bedroom place. Either my mum or I have explained our situation to every real estate agent we've contacted. Most agents actually listen to us, but this guy today was a real piece of work.

He was an older guy, probably mid 60s and a real "good ol boy". We made it pretty clear to him after he mentioned kids at the first house that they were not a factor in our house hunt, but he knew better, of course. He kept bingoing me all though looking at the first house and then at the 2nd house till I flat out told him "Just shut up about kids, ok? I'm here to look at houses, not talk about babies" to which I just got a condescending smirk before he turned his back on me to bingo my mum! The conversation went a little like this:

Agent: "Don't worry, you'll be a grandma in the next year or so. She's nearly at the age where popping out a rugrat will be all she thinks about."

Mum: "I think my daughter knows her thoughts on kids better than you do."

Agent: "Trust me, I know women and you all want babies eventually."

That really pissed my mum off. She looked him dead in the eye and said "You know, if you actually listened to your clients instead of being a condescending dick, you'd probably have made enough commission to have retired by now." and we walked out.

Android v. iOS screen real estate

Sat, 15 Nov 2014 12:49:29 -0800

When I upgraded from my 2013 Moto X to the 2014, I was disappointed that the larger screen didn't buy me any more screen real estate. Now that lollipop is out and the UI has gotten even bigger, it's worse. I did some comparisons with my girlfriends iPhone 6 this morning, and it hurts even more that her 4.7 inch screen shows significantly more information than my 5.2. Might look into rooting and changing my DPI settings down the road, but just wanted to throw up some comparisons. Anyone else bummed out by this? Any solutions?
