You're focusing on trying to mitigate a small amount of $$$ by giving up a considerable amount of your time.

Who manages the property? Who advertises, shows, handles arrivals and departures, cleaning? Who answers the phone at midnight when the toilet doesn't flush?

Re: ***Official "It Lives, It Lives" Chat Thread***

I imagine someone named Steve for the first two questions and someone named Manuel for the third.

It’s not a small amount of $. You might not be as familiar with it but rental income is tremendous in Destin, and runs 365 days a year and occupancy rates even in the downturn were pretty high.

I agree with you though that it sounds like a huge hassle overall. Just an idea. I don’t really want to own a home I use 2 months a year, but I do want a home base.

My neighbor is a plumber and his name could be Steve.

So rent a place for $1000/mo instead of buying something and trying to rent it.

That's the small amount of $ I'm talking about. As a renter, you're out $12k per year.

As an owner it would be 2x that easily.

Man Iíd love to pick his brain if that was a possibility when I move closer to you.

Do you know if the destin unit is long term rental or is it a vacation property?

Anyway, I get a few who hound me for money and stuff. A couple are unstable. On guy I figured was ok because he was in grad school, but he's the worst. I bought some Amazon credits from him and he has my address as a result.

So now I keep 95% of BR out of the house, which is an effing pain. Gonna get a gun soon. I was already considering it because I heard they can be a good way to invest cash but it's starting to seem practical too.

Anyway, I've learned that you need to keep up a firm barrier for a while till you really know someone. You don't have to be any less generous overall, you just have to distribute it more wisely.

Being a landlord is a pain in the ass unless you have lots of time to throw at it. I sold my investment property in Denver this year.

Homer, leave your internet friends alone.

Speaking of. Does anyone know where I can find, or do the know, some guidelines on investing in guns? Probably getting a shotgun.

Re: ***Official "It Lives, It Lives" Chat Thread***

Finally, FINALLY got to play.

This breaks my longest poker hiatus in well over 10 years. Even though I only got to play 3 hours.

Never made a winning hand better than top pair, which only happened twice. Still finished +120. Only made $25 worth of questionable decisions, and another $26 worth of preflop decisions that could have gone either way but questioning them would be too results-oriented. Considering the time off, not bad, all things considered.

A person who hasn't previously been a gun owner, buying guns as an investment, seems like a -ev decision.

Just a few shotguns from another life when I hunted.

I donít think investing in guns is a good idea, and Iím literally looking at timeshares right now.

You're looking at timeshares cuz you're a masochist, tho.

investing in guns doesnt seem worth it compared to investing in other things. though, the time to buy is when Republicans have control because when Democrats have control, it's all "oh they're gonna take ma gunz away, i gots to buy moar"

with that being said, for home protection, a nice pump action shotgun with bird shot is great. any person who willingly hears the distinctive sound of chambering a round in a pump action shotgun and still enters a room literally has a death wish. bird shot allows you to be pretty much blind and still hit something in a confined space. and you probably wont kill them, which is typically good..
