Some ”cash buyer” offered to buy my home without asking for any details or wanting to look at my property. He said he’ll send the purchase agreement via email immediately. Sounds like a scam…thoughts?

Happens to me two or three times a month. But I’m in Central Texas. Just investors fishing

Fishing how?

How much is he offering?

More than anyone else….

Easily could be some kind of scam—if you’re interested in selling, ask for the PSA and have a lawyer review it. The worst thing that could happen is you give him the deed and the wire transfer doesn’t “go through” — then you’ve conveyed the property, you don’t get the money, and he conveys it to someone else. Though I have heard of completely legitimate transaction like this happening in a hot market.

That’s typical for wholesalers, they usually give you 65-75% of fair market value only though

Does anyone feel they’re adding any sort of value while going to the office? I personally don’t. In my team there’s legit zero level interaction with each other, no informative talks, no growths conversation and few are so absurd that each day they just find ways to impress their snrs. man, come on😅

Leadership asks us to come 2-3 days in a week and if I have to work in the same way which I used to do from home then why don’t we keep doing WFH as long as your job is not suffering.

Dead Floor!


Guys, any advise on how to handle this question "Why do you want to leave your current job?" Since it's been only 6 months. The actually reason is to get better package. I'm getting very low now.

HOA - doing something without approval.....was planning to change my windows without hoa approval but my neighbour snitched. I came clean to the hoa and now I need to go through a 2 mo approval process and they might not even approve my windows. I paid 7k for them.

Am I overthinking this?
