What do you mean by “find new markets”? I think the markets are fairly well defined, it just comes down to a personal preference. What is your goal and budget? Are you planning to self manage or hire a property manager?

👨‍👦+👨‍👧‍👧=🤪 I learned 48 hours ago that my wife and I are having twins! I’m struggling with emotions if you can believe it. I’m SO excited because I ADORE my two-year-old son, but it also means a million other things will change. And COVID isn’t going to make things any easier. Any words of wisdom? Has anyone else been in a similar situation and have learnings/insight to share?

Is moving to the East Village or LES worth it now with COVID? My partner and I are introverts and don’t mind the lack of night life. Our appeal to the area is being surrounded by young people, the availability of nice restaurants for take out or dine outdoors, nice parks and crossing off our bucket list to live in the city. We also don’t mind if the neighborhood will be a little quiet, but I’ve heard there’s more homeless people, shady people roaming around outside now? Appreciate any insight!

Hello, does anyone have a good source for insights on people towards the COVID-19 vaccine?

I have 8+ years of experience as a NYC designer/art director in house. With covid, I’ve had a lot of time on my hands and have taken on a bunch of side freelance work with a rate of $70/hour. As a senior, I’ve always done freelance work for past coworkers or people I know. I just had a financial firm reach out to me with multiple offices including 2 in Asia. It’s a branding and collateral project. I’m assuming $70/hour is way too low a rate for this kind of company. What would you charge?

Hi all,

Also, if anyone is willing to look over my resume and give me tips on how to make it more presentable for recruiters in DA that would be very helpful. Thanks

NDAs for Nannies? I was wondering how everyone who is doing some work from home during covid handles in-house caregivers? Obviously we all take all steps to protect confidential information and realistically a caregiver isn't going to be exposed to anything we do, but does anyone require an NDA just to be on the safe side? (I dont have an in home caregiver yet, but just thinking about it.)

So originally it was $2300, I'm asking for $2380. They are saying they banked on the $2300. Should I try to negotiate $2350?

Closing on my first home. Advice for anyone with student loans in administrative forbearance per the Cares act: once your offer is accepted have you student loan servicer put your account back in repayment status.

Accounts in forbearance, even administrative forbearance, are calculated at a higher monthly payment by the underwriter.

My fictitious debt to income ratio was too high for them to approve me, and it took seven days for my loan to be officially back in repayment. So just a heads up.
