Re: Remember How I Was Saying Seattle Is Insane.

I, actually, expected less of a home so that is good news. However, it has still been on the market for 202 days so it may be overpriced or there are some issues.

Ditto - I was looking at those pics thinking when can I move. Proximity [more]

FICO 750

I haven't posted in forever but wanted to share the news. Quite the 10 year journey.

My debt is down to my mortgage and two credit cards - even own both cars.

Oh - and I'm engaged to an amazing woman.

Dave:

Just some regional info.

Both of those homes are located north of what is called the "Kirkland crawl," if you're heading south on I-405 for a commute, it's a living Hell starting off from that point. If you're [more]

Re: Remember How I Was Saying Seattle Is Insane...

Also note the condition of the house and it's complete lack of upgrades since...well since it was probably built.

...and that you don't get a lot of house for your money?

Welcome to real estate 101, Puget Sound style, east side.

Re: Mac Mini not suitable for purchase

It's called the Intel NUC D54250WYK. It's only about 4.5 inches square, and cost $356 with power cord (slightly cheaper without).

Re: Looking to purchase

Ummmm, Chevy hasn't made a minivan since 2008.

One could easily argue that Chevy stopped making an even remotely viable minivan back in 1995 with the death of the 3.8L V6 "dust busters."

Remember when researching the Impala the 2014 Impala has nothing in common with the 2013 or previous years.

NEVER wash a car with dishwasher soap unless you intend to strip all the wax off and immediately re-wax the vehicle.

Re: Early adopters abandon their smartwatchs

The average consumer won't buy it.

Smartwatches for Apple make about as much sense as a dedicated TV set with Apple branding.

Next to none.
