What's the most messed up thing you've seen a real estate agent do/say?

Tue, 21 Aug 2012 11:17:35 -0700

Last year when i was looking for a pet friendly place in Somerville, I had not one, but three agencies seriously suggest that I put my dog down to help find me a place. Joking or not that's still messed up right? What are your real estate stories?

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.

Anyone reached FI through buy and hold real estate investing?

Tue, 13 Jan 2015 07:20:29 -0800

Hi,

I know it's not the preferred route to FI around these parts, but I'm really interested to here stories of anyone reaching FI through buy and hold real estate investing. How long did it take, how many units, how did you grow your portfolio etc.

I'm interested in going this route myself so I guess I'm just looking for some motivation / reassurance that it can be done.

Thanks!

An old man was on his death bed. He wanted badly to take some of his money with him. He called his priest, his doctor and his real estate agent to his bedside. “Here’s $30,000 cash to be held by each of you. I trust you to put this in my coffin when I die so I can take all my money with me."

Mon, 08 Jun 2015 09:29:42 -0700

At the funeral, each man put an envelope in the coffin. Riding away in a limousine, the priest suddenly broke into tears and confessed, “I had only put $20,000 into the envelope because I needed $10,000 for a new baptistery.”

“Well, since we’re confiding in each other,” said the doctor, “I only put $10,000 in the envelope because we needed a new machine at the hospital which cost $20,000."

The real estate agent was aghast "I'm ashamed of both of you, I want it known that when I put my envelope in that coffin, it held my personal check for the full $30,000."

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?

Feinstein's Husband to make millions in USPS real estate transactions.

Sat, 01 Mar 2014 17:17:25 -0800

http://www.snopes.com/politics/business/blum.asp

The US has entered into a contract with a real estate firm to sell 56 buildings that currently house U.S. Post Offices. The government has decided it no longer needs these buildings, most of which are located on prime land in towns and cities across the country. The sale of these properties will fetch about $19 billion.

A regular real estate commission will be paid to the company that was given the exclusive listing for handling the sales.

That company is CRI and it belongs to a man named Richard Blum. Richard Blum is the husband of Senator Dianne Feinstein. (Most voters and many of the government people who approved the deal have not made the connection between the two because they have different last names).

Senator Feinstein and her husband stand to make a fortune (EST at between $950 million and $1.1 billion) from these transactions. His company is the sole real estate on the sale. CRI will be making a minimum of 3% and as much as 6% commission on each and every sale. All of the properties that are being sold are all fully paid for. They were purchased with U.S. taxpayers dollars.

The U.S.P.S. is allowed free and clear, tax exempt use. The only cost to keep them open is the cost to actually keep the doors open and the heat and lights on. The United States Postal Service doesn't even have to pay county property taxes on these subject properties. QUESTION? Would you put your house in foreclosure just because you couldn't afford to pay the electric bill?

Well, the folks in Washington have given the Post Office the OK to do it. Worse yet, most of the net proceeds of the sales will go back to the U.S.P.S, an organization that is so poorly managed that they have lost $117 billion dollars in the past 10 years.

No one in the mainstream media is even raising an eyebrow over the conflict of interest and on the possibility of corruption on the sale of billions of dollars worth of public assets. How does a U.S. Senator from San Francisco manage to get away with organizing and lobbying such a sweet deal? Has our government become so elitist that they have no fear of oversight? And it's no mere coincidence that these two public service crooks have different last names; a feeble attempt at avoiding transparency in these type of transactions.

Horrendous interview with a real estate agent. I'm still in shock. Venting...

Tue, 03 Dec 2013 14:55:48 -0800

This nutcase wants to pay $50 flat for 50-100 images for each property... uploaded within 24 hours... in an area where the homes go for Millions of dollars. She also wants all of the photos to be uploaded to a website she wants me to build for her, needs all of her social media to be updated with each property, and wants me to do some videography for the properties as well. Then she went on about how many international Asian clients she has... and apparently according to her, "Asians love blondes and the color blue. So always wear blue when you are in front of the clients, since you are a brunette." After that she made a comment about how unprofessional my bangs are. My bangs aren't edgy or unprofessional, they're more Zooey Deschanel. I'm so disgusted!! Are all real estate agents insane like this?? This is the first agent I've met with. Previously I've worked with clients who were privately selling their homes... wth?

We need more real estate outside of the city.

Fri, 01 Nov 2013 05:55:52 -0700

This is something that we need. Why is there no good real-estate outside of the city? I like the Blaine County area so much more than the city. There is a 6 car garage near the air force base, and some 2 car garages up in sandy shores and the little town at the north end of the map. Maybe a DLC can make some of the big unused warehouses 10 car garages.
