  • Should I buy A well maintained older home with a very nice pool or a new home without one and have one put in?

    Best answer: Older home without a pool and have it installed later. Houses built in the last 30 or so years are crap, buy something substantial and expand on it.

  • Parents got money for selling great uncle's house. I didn't expect any of it?

    Recently my parents sold a relative's house, and got half of the selling price ($80,000). I didn't expect any of it, but they decided to give me $1,000 from it. My wife is furious that that's all I'm getting from it, cause my parents already have a paid off house and vehicle, while we rent and... show more

My wife is furious that that's all I'm getting from it, cause my parents already have a paid off house and vehicle, while we rent and still owe money on our vehicles. I mean, should I expect more? I helped with the selling, cleaning and other work with it, so I guess it's compensation for that.

My wife is furious that that's all I'm getting from it, cause my parents already have a paid off house and vehicle, while we rent and still owe money on our vehicles. I mean, should I expect more? I helped with the selling, cleaning and other work with it, so I guess it's compensation for that. Also, my parents didn't pay their house off by working hard, my great grandfather died, and they received a bit over $100,000 inheritance from him, which is more than they paid for their house in the mid 1980's, and also when they did buy their house, my grandfather gave them the down payment ($10,000) My parents are in a great spot financially, and no, they don't owe me money. The $1,000 is for me just helping them move furniture and some other things out of the house. Did I expect money? No. Honestly though, after all of the help they received from their parents/grandparents, I thought they'd help me and my wife out. We are financially responsible, and slowly saving money up for a house, only debt we have left is about $15,000 in student loans combined.

  • Are you allowed to tint condo windows?

    Best answer: You can tint your windows, but only if the property owner permits it in writing. The letter is to cover your back in the future. You then get a lawyer to OK it. Some places have local laws that are weird, and some might hit you with a heavy fine if you infringe them. If a local council can regulate the length of... show more

Some places have local laws that are weird, and some might hit you with a heavy fine if you infringe them. If a local council can regulate the length of grass or color outside a property then a law governing windows might also be on the books. Also, if you do screw up you can hit the lawyer for the cost

  • Is getting a painter who is not a friend to paint your house too expensive for most people?

    Best answer: I suppose. That's usually a middle class thing. But poverty seems to be growing. So I think most people would just do it themselves or leave it be.

    What are these notices about?

    Found these posts on a window of a building next door to me. (The neighbor who used to live here no longer lives here, so maybe it's regarding demolition/remodeling?)

  • Where can I find a bed that doubles as a sofa? (Not the other way around)?

    Best answer: You can get a twin bed and place it up against the wall, lengthwise. Pile some throw pillows on, so it looks like a sofa. If you can sew, get some big pillows, sew loops on the corners, and hang the pillows up against the wall, when you want to use the bed as a sofa or make it look like a sofa. These can be removed... show more
