Is there some kind of database that shows who has property that only realtors can access? Like could they look up someone by name to see if they bought property?
I am viewing a house tomorrow that is 2 years old. Is it ok to waive an inspection since it is so new?
My offer was rejected on a different house yesterday due to another offer having “better terms”. My offer was very competitive but I said I wanted an inspection and I would pay out of pocket for required fixes of up to 1% of purchase price and I wonder if they went with an offer that waived inspection.

First time trying to buy a property for an eventual rental income (a single house or 2 or 3 family). Would you buy it under your personal name, get a residential mortgage, then transfer the deed to LLC later or buy it under LLC name at the first place and get a commercial mortgage? What would be pros and cons of each?

How big is your emergency fund? I plan on keeping at least a 100k in cash for this coming recession (7 month reserve including my rental property mortgages).
Almost worried that it might not be enough.
I built a standard Airbnb revenue model in excel for a property and it showed a decent monthly income based only on 30% occupancy rate for a place that has an average of 42%. I can take on about half of that as risk in case I don’t make it based on my income. I’m still nervous. Given this very little information… would you invest?
Buying a $700k property in Chicago. We are getting a 3.5% rate with 20% down. We can do 40% down and still have an emergency fund left over for 3-4 months of expenses. Should we do 40% or not?

Airbnb Rental Arbitrage
Hi all, seeking your advice.
I don't have money to buy another property, I already have a mortgage and I heard about Airbnb arbitrage where you can start doing short term rentals without owning the property.
Have you had any experience s on this field?
What are the pros and cons?
Is it a good idea to start it?
Thanks in advance for your input.
Best way to find cheap temp housing? Selling my place and buying in a tough market what to do if I don’t find something in time
I really like this house that’s selling for $275k. I want to put in an offer, but think it’s realistically worth $255-$260k. The house is being sold by a company ie Orchard. Should I just buy the house since I like it or do I wait for prices to come down in the next few weeks and look for another house to not overpay?
When selling/buying a house: are included appliances a big deal? Fridge, washer, dryer? Technically you could sell them off, make a grand or so. Or is there more value with the statement “all appliances convey to new owner.”

This is pretty absurd. You think global warming is going to make “northern latitudes” that much more pleasant ? Please research what global warming and climate change means. It’s a couple degrees Celsius.
Unless you're talking about more immediate impact like rising water levels flowing into shoreline properties, I don't see your example of global warming materially impacting human migration patterns given modern day technologies and human preferences. Maybe if you're talking a few generations of holding onto the property? But who knows what will happen by then.
You sir are either crazy a genius or both
More and more people are moving south. I don’t know anyone moving north. Especially with the uncertainty of what workforce solutions will look like in the future (work from home possibilities), more people are moving south for cheaper real estate prices/COL in general and better weather.
Are you targeting like 50 years from now? Perhaps an exodus from some coastal areas that will flood.
Talking Maine, NH, VT, MT, ID all areas where I see way more opportunity than Florida, TX, Carolinas, AZ all of which have major natural resource issues and other global warming impacts in the next 15-30 years.
These states have inexpensive land where you can be semi off the grid and relatively protected from major swings in climate change. In addition they have spread out populations that also make pandemic lifestyle more desirable.
With starlink beta out and targeting that latitude I see even more upside.
