Re: Selling a house without a realtor

Costs you nothing to put on zillow.com and craigslist iirc. And frankly thats what everyone else is using these days. Plus a for sale notice - and you might find a neighbour has always wanted your...

Re: Q: Ex-Pat Car Insurance for a UK vehicle when in UK

Who is ever going to find out that it's out of date in the first place? As far as I'm concerned, and as far as plod is concerned, it's a valid driving license. I don't remember anywhere in becoming a...

Re: Q: Ex-Pat Car Insurance for a UK vehicle when in UK

I got my father to insure a vehicle with me as a named driver. If I get stopped, I can pull out a valid insurance certificate and a valid UK drivers license. I doubt a cop will ever ask me to show...

Re: Is the USA actually more expensive than the UK?

FL is far cheaper than the UK (anywhere in the UK). Not an expensive lunch today on the south coast in England was $33 or so. Lunch on the beach at home would be less than $20 for the same thing.

Re: First time visit to USA to meet girlfriend

ESTA clearance just means you can step on the flight. Doesn't give you any right to entry to the country once you land.

If they don't like you at Immigration, you'll get the second interview and...

Re: First time visit to USA to meet girlfriend

Best bit of advice I can give you - at Immigration - don't look like a scruffy git with an obnoxious tshirt. I've seen countless single guys from the UK getting the second interview treatment at...

Re: Yay, just bought a house..now which A/C unit to get?

Where is the asbestos? Siding?

Installs here are about $4.5k absolute maximum and that's ducting and inside/outside unit (plus everything that's needed). The breakdown is $1300 for ducting (about...

Re: Can we get a buy-to-let property in US

If you are intending on buying distressed properties (eg foreclosure, short sales) it's more or less a cash only game. The banks are very uninterested in financing out a new deal when another bank...

Try learning some manners.

Re: Analysis of US gun violence

Answer a straight question, and tell me where I'm wrong. My ccw range fails people when the feel they aren't good enough.

Re: Tipping for big groups

Larger groups tip worse. They won't tip say $6 each and make $36, they'll leave a single tip of say $10.

Re: Analysis of US gun violence

I have a Florida CCW thank you. I know the process very well, and it's as I said.

The "express method" whatever that is, will be the educational component of your CCW application.

Re: Analysis of US gun violence

I suggested that they don't make an immediate follow up to a failed background check, and you point out that they made a whole 44 arrests out of 70k failures! I think...

Re: Analysis of US gun violence

Yes, and it can be done at the state level. There are already laws in place about registering as a car dealer once you trade x number of cars in a year, why not guns?

Some of the crap I read on...

Re: Analysis of US gun violence

I see where you are going with this, but they don't need to do anything other than enforce Form 4473 properly.

Lanza was denied a gun when they did a background check - this should have resulted...

Re: Investing in the US

I'm really sorry, I have no idea where you are coming from. I'm assuming you know nothing about the Florida market and are making up the concept of high risk to support your argument.

Re: Investing in the US

In the last year we have picked up more than a few properties in this area that are all in the 20-30% ROI. We close on a property next week that will net around 33%.

Re: Investing in the US

Find the OP an ROI in Canada of 20-30% then. The OP has obviously heard about some returns investors are making in Florida, and I can assure you - it's true.

Re: Investing in the US

Which estate taxes are we talking about? Do you mean property taxes? Estate taxes can be got around by having the property in your name and your wifes name, or with a dated quick claim deed.

Re: Analysis of US gun violence

The previous post mentioned ccw, and in Florida you must take the NRA CCW course and pass it. And the instructors do not pass everyone just because they sat there and paid the fee.
