If you wish to discuss bans or warnings please do so via PM. To place a complaint against a moderator, send a PM to a super moderator. All Moderators are equal, any decision made by a moderator must be adhered to. If a moderator tells you something you do not like, do not go to another moderator looking for a different answer. If you are caught doing this you will be banned. The moderators work as a team and respect the decisions made by their peers and will help enforce them unless an administrator tells them differently.
If you have an issue with how the forum is run, then notify one of our administrator and we will look into the situation. We have in the past and still do appreciate any input that you offer this forum. But critical input and/or judgmental postings towards the staff will result in you getting banned.

    Thanks , I appreciate... No nothing does replace him. I would rather him still be here and be in debt for the rest of my life and live out on the street.

            It will pick up if they enact the new law allowing you to carry over from your previous home. Your tax will go up of course but will still only increase 3% per year. I guess they gotta work out the kinks and limits which takes time. I mean it is unreasonable to expect to go from say 200,000 to 700,000 and not get an increase.

              Real Estate prices are still pretty high in sought after communities up here. Primarily because owners significantly overpaid for the price of their homes and cannot sell them much lower.

                    Real estate is "an interest in land." The word "interest" can mean either a property right or leasehold interest. In a property right, an investor is entitled to all rights of ownership of land and must also assume the risks and responsibilities as a landowner.
