Arrrr, time to hit the high seas again!
X and the wife are off for the Halloween cruise to Ensenada. Try and behave while we are away!
Feel free to use this as an open thread to discuss whatever "floats your boat".
I start by mentioning that I went out again today to look at some opens in Norco Hills. The traffic was fairly busy but I suspect much of it was due to the Auction open houses. The REDC has an upcoming auction and there were 3 auction homes open in the area. I think this drew a lot of people that then stopped at the other opens. One or two homes looked nice and the prices are getting a bit more reasonable. 2 of the homes in Bretton Gait were under $500k and one just slightly over that. I like one of the houses on Morab and another over the hill on Crestview. One home on Oldenburg was thrashed by the previous home debtor. They took the freaking base boards, Who does that? The rest of the house was a mess too. Another looked like a pack of wolves went through it and pee'd on every sq foot of carpet. Note to realtors: Get the damn carpets cleaned!
I overheard on lady talking to a realtor, she wanted and an 80/20, 100% financing. He was doing his best to tell her those are not available any more. Don't these people read the freakin paper or watch the news?
