My wife said it was flooding out by our place and used it as an excuse to take my truck to UNLV to register for the bar exam. She starts tomorrow and will finish testing on Thursday. It will be nice to have her back after this week. I'm really hoping she can find a good job soon.

This landlord crap is for the birds. I have a house on the East "ghetto" side of town I bought for $53,000. I have had it for about a year now and lookin back I wish I never would have bought it. Only ****ty people will live there, and they destroy everything. I make enough on rent to cover the loan and a little extra. Every time some one moves out or gets evicted I'm screwed on repairs. Hopefully prices will go up soon or Im going to cut my losses on it. Anyone want to fire bomb a house? JK

I've been getting $850 for it. Im going to start raising my deposit. In no way am I made of money and I'm going to spend probably $4000 in repairs before I can move someone into it. It has been eating up all of my jeep fund.

When did you buy outta curiosity and did you go into it buying as an investment rental type property? Only asking cause I'm having drinks with a chick on wed night with the false pretense of talking to her about doing something similar. Okay, actually I am tossing around the thought of it and am looking for others opinions. But really the main reason I'm meeting her for drinks is cause she's hot and single... Will talk some shop but hoping to keep it minimal, find out my info and then move onto social casual talk. LOL

House prices plummeted everywhere, but where you can buy a house for the cost of an SRT challenger, only scumbags will live in the area! I used to live at lamb and charleston, and 10 yrs ago, it was...ok, fifteen years ago, it was a decent place to live. Since '06, it has gone seriously down hill. Latinos living 3-4 families per home are the norm over there, graffiti and junk cars are everywhere. They do mobile car washes in the streets. They are seriously bringing the lifestyle and habits from Mexico and its becoming like any given Mexican town. Buildings in disrepair, yards look like crap, and trash and other garbage litters the neighborhoods. It's really a shame, and lots of people don't realize that Mexico is classified as a third world country! It's not racist, it's fact!

our plan is to rent if we do end up going overseas. Rent in this area has been going between 1400-1600 for houses my size. Hopefully that price range will keep out some of the hoodlums. As it gets closer I am going to start looking at companies to manage the property, and while it is expensive (around 10% of rent) it will be worth it. Most of the management companies will do full background check, collect rent, and follow up on your property. While my wife is in Korea I plan on building up a separate account just to handle the house. We will try to keep some extra money in there to cover the mortgage if we do not have renters, keep the security deposits, and keep funds for repairs. Hopefully with a separate account we will not run into any issues and I will be able to tell when it is safe to pull my cut out.

Purely investment. I make some money off of it but it is such a hassle. If I hire a management comp I'll make nothing on it. I bought in mid 2010. I know you make the money when the market comes back and selling it but I don't know if I want to tough it out and wait for that to happen.

My wife and I have put off buying a house until she takes the bar, but buying right now is next to impossible. By time i put an offer in on a house an investment company buys it with cash.

We may move in with her parents because we have finished our lease on our apartment and having been paying an extra $250 for not signing another lease and paying month to month. They said last month that they were going to either make us sign a new lease or force us out.

That's actually part of what I was going to ask the chick I'm meeting with.

I've been lucky with my house in Az that I rent out. I've had 2 different tenants in it and they've both been excellent. I've slowly built up an account with about $5K in it for emergency repairs and maintenance but it's been pretty worry free so far. Now that I say that, I do need to call a handyman to head out and fix some general stuff. Nothing tenant caused, just general wear and tear.

I've had 2 bed bug infestations. Always roaches. Multiple holes punched in walls. Sinks broken in half. Destroyed garage doors and openers. It's just getting old.

Ugh, yeah that's not fun at all! I've got some roof shingles that need fixed, some outside trim paint and some doors need adjusted and also one of the door locks isn't working. Literally just general maintenance type stuff...

Once our lease is up at our current place, we'll be renting a house in Summerlin.

that is not too bad though. Scott that sucks with all of that stuff, If your bug guy is not cutting it let me know... there is no icon for that one, I cannot stop laughing, I might just pee myself. I saw the house that is up the road from polka and it is trashed. For being in newer houses (under 10 years old) his neighborhood was not looking too hot. Good for him he is renting right now


We ran into issues when we bought here due to the fact that I used my va loan. With a va loan I was basically limited to flipped houses and I did not have the time to wait for a short sale. All of the foreclosed houses that I wanted had empty pools and for a va loan the house has to be 100%... so I would have to fill the pool just for the inspection. Our other issue at the time was hoping the appraisal came back good, our house came back 11k under and that was after I already lowballed 15k under the price at the time.

Everything's been ok in Summerlin, the hoa has been doing a good job at keeping the idiots out. Except for the old hairy white dudes without shirts walking around their yards, that reminds me, gotta take out the yard clippings, shirtless!
