Hi all, new to this group and to home buying. Wanted to get advice on whether this is a good time to purchase a condo. Also how do you know which area is best in terms of future appreciation? Thinking of Hudson county, Newport jersey city or close to it. Any thoughts on pros and cons to be considered when purchasing a first condo apt ? Also what resources are available for a first time buyer . Thanks a ton in advance

I'm in the last stage of the pipeline for a company. Literally preparing for an assignment and I'll be having the last interview on Monday. I checked their LinkedIn feed today, and I saw they made a post TODAY(Friday) that they are still looking for the role I'm applying. I found it a bit rude and disappointing. Is this normal? Or am I overthinking it?

Is it ever acceptable for a manager to visibly demonstrate anger/rage and guilt trip when their employee resigns? Context - my ex-mamager was placed on a PIP early in her in tenure (for very unfair/petty reasons). Her manager & COO called her toxic to the company (again very untrue) and kept asking her if she was leaving the company. So when she quit, her manager got mad and told her “how dare you quit when this account needs people” among other things. I lost all respect for the manager
