Florida resident here. My landlord listed the condo we live in a month ago. We move out end of May. For the last month, we have had multiple tours a week. I'm starting to feel like I live in a museum and there's no end in sight for these tours. I asked the the realtor to pick certain days a week for tours and he said no. This is getting to be very burdensome. Am I supposed to just live in a museum for the next 3 months and I have no say?

Just finished my 3rd interview with the CLO. Figured that will likely be the final. Received an email today from the TA asking if I’m available to tomorrow for an “update call”.

Are they about to let me down easy or going to start getting into the nitty gritty (i.e., salary, bonus, benefits, etc.). Anyone had a similar email before? Just want to know what to expect…
