    I'll go first.

    I gotta go make something out of an enormous pile of not that useful adolescents.

    Sorry I didn't play along.

    Would your answer have been "...ClemmonsDevil posts"?

    Hot tip: if the person selling you a house says "hey, do you want us to toss these forty broken two foot squares of marble - they might be useful for an art project" say YES PLEASE. You will be cranky eleven years later when you finally get around to getting rid of them and they are heavy as sin.

    Yes, definitely make the seller get rid of their junk.

    Add that to the list of things learned from first time buying a house. Along with "never use a dual agent."

    Ha. Too late. It's been hefted into a dumpster.

    If someone came to take it for free, they would take three and be like "nah, I'm good."

    Confirmed. The lawsuits would be never ending.

    Also on the list: don't buy a house from a friend.

    Maybe I should start a blog.

    Dual agent just sounds bad.

    Apropos of this, we've reached the portion of the school year where I find myself increasingly inclined to ask things like, "Are you that f&*%ing stupid, or do you think I am that f&*%ing stupid?

    Nota bene: I of course do not say things like this to my students, but darned if middle schoolers don't perennially make one want to simply ask, "WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH YOU??!"

    Anyone who teaches middle school is a strong candidate for sainthood in my opinion.

    I think I responded incorrectly to my favorite person today. I got a call from that wonderful person - Scam Likely. I've been answering them due to signing up for somethings that may result in a call I don't want to miss. They wanted to know if I was interested in selling my house. I'm not really interested but I should have probably asked how much before I said no. For the right price, I could be tempted but it would need to be a really good price.

    I always tell them $6 million cash, firm. Then I don't get any of those calls for about 6 months. Then I recommence telling them "$6 million cash, firm" for another week or so, and then I don't get any of those calls for about 6 months. Lather, rinse, repeat.

    Dunno what prices are in Kansas, but here in Asheville the housing market is insane.

    Here in the Triangle, we are constantly getting calls and mail asking to sell. Houses do not stay on the market long at all. My parents' first house, bought in 1962 for $16,000. 1330 sf, 1/3 acre lot. Recently sold for $216,000. Bostondevil can attest to how crazy this is.

    Same down here in the Atlanta area...our appraised value is up around 60% since we bought 7 years ago.

    Our Zillow value is twice what we paid with no improvements to speak of.
