I dont mind. But it's weird.
At least I shouldn't have to heat my pool anymore this year. Once the water gets over 80 I won't use the heater. My wife refuses to get in when it is below 84,

Most of the time I can't find anything on the internet but clickbait. Some decent sites support themselves in part by allowing clickbait ads to appear on them.Quote: rxwine

My company 401k matches 100% up to 4% but if you contribute 6% then they do a discretionary lump sum match up to 2% more, based on annual company performance. Last year they added 0.5% but this year just announced the discretionary match will be 2%. Nice to put in 6% and get it matched 100% :)
Why do so many companies make 401k matches so convoluted?
My company matches 20% of whatever you put in. Period. Simple and straight to the point.
I'm looking at a house in pre-foreclosure in Hereford. Two hundred feet east and it would have the much more desirable Bisbee zip and address. Public records show a mortgage was issued on this house for $208,000 in 2007. Todays asking price- $49,000. This is an extreme example as the house has been abandoned for three or more years and has been pretty much picked clean . Needs at least $50,000 to rehab. The views of the mountains are incredible.
In Sierra Vista, its worse. Some homes that sold for $250,000 are now under 100K, and are in almost move in condition. With a nearby army base, you'd think demand for off base housing would make these properties desirable.
I thought about buying foreclosed. But I wasn't familiar with the process. I ended up buying a condo as a vacation home. Paying HOA ~ $200/month, tax ~ $300/month, and electricity ~ $50/month. But the condo increased 50% in value since I bought it. I visit about one weekend a month. But I don't have to worry as much about burglary. Because I'm surrounded by neighbors can hear what's going on next door.
Went to look at a nice house in town that had an aux. apartment in what used to be the garage but the numbers didn't work.
Frustrated at pretty much driving 18 hours round trip for nothing, I noticed a shop I was in a few weeks ago now had a for sale sign on it. It's currently an upscale thrift shop , with a Keto Bakery renting about a fifth of the space. Turned out the owner of the shop is also the owner of the building and she is looking to downsize.
A few hours of diligence, offers and counteroffers, and we are in escrow. I like this building so much I believe I'm going to eventually try to rezone it to make it residential, and convert it into my permanent home. Back when Bisbee was a "restricted" town, the building next door was a hotel for "colored" workers and as blacks and Chinese were not welcomed in most Bisbee establishments, this building was the social center for much of that community.
