House, because I didn't want HOA fees and I wanted a yard.

Condo so I can stay in the city

House. I wanted a home to raise my family in.

First purchase was two rental homes out-of-state because it was cheaper than buying a primary home where we live.
So we pay rent where we want to live (condo with a yard, 5 minutes from the beach) while earning extra rental income on the 2 houses.

I remember when I first started working on my thesis project. My adviser asked me to get some funding for it, but he didn't give me any advice about how to do that. He just told me that if I wanted money for my project, I'd have to go through some kind of committee process and submit an application for funding from them. Sure enough, after weeks of writing applications and waiting around for responses from the committee members (who were always too busy), I eventually got approved for funding!

In Los Angeles - buying my first home. Should I care about what school district the home is assigned? I’m a single guy - and My budget is up to $850k.

Question about tenants.. I have this inherited tenant who I am 90% sure are involved in some type of drugs scheme. The parents recently passed and they called each other “fiancée” and the adult daughter and her “fiancée” want to rent on their own. Long story short I’ve gotten them out of the house but then I was talking to a cousin of the estate and when I said fiancée and who was trying to live there he kind of chuckled and said I’m not even going to go there… Is fiancée code for something ??

Put house on the market at what realtor thinks is a fair value. So far (only five showings) everyone likes the house but says it’s too expensive given updates they’d want to make (they don’t say what but I’m guessing updating the bathrooms as example). Would you let the property hang out longer or would you move quickly to drop the price down? We’re actually not in a rush to sell but it’s frustrating hearing everyone else say their house sold in like a day
