Re: Last court date for Juju's death

As a lawyer, I'm sorry you had to go through a full blown trial like that. They must have some money to pay a lawyer to actually go to court on that.

RIP poor Juju. You stood up for her, good for you.

Re: New credit card effect on FICO?

I have a pretty modest budget, and live in a low cost of living area, so I am looking at a max of $150,000, more like $130,000. I just don't have a lot of cash. I have my own residence and a house that is rental property. I bought the rent property 2 [more]

Re: New credit card effect on FICO?

AJ,

Another option you may want to consider would be to stay at an extended stay hotel (many are pet-friendly) or in a short term furnished apartment (also can find pet-friendly places), while leaving your furniture, etc. either at your [more]

Re: New credit card effect on FICO?

It's not a line of credit, it's a fixed loan. I'll check on the cost and insurance coverage again, and then check with the loan officer. I need to be a little more certain of a move date, and I may have that info after this week.

Thanks for [more]

Re: New credit card effect on FICO?

Ask about if increasing your credit line requires them to an inquiry on your credit report first

Seems that since both cards are with USAA, and I'm applying with them to also get the mortgage, work-arounds like that wouldn't make a [more]

Re: New credit card effect on FICO?

I have $16,500 and $9500 available on the 2 USAA cards. Seems that this should be a pretty good ratio? The one with the higher interest rate has the higher limit. Would it really make a big difference?

Paint it Blue, you are right about the dentist - I should be able to stretch some of it out, but not a whole lot. What's happening is that I'm getting dentures, and the lab that makes the dentures wants at least 1/2 of the cost up front. I can make [more]

New credit card effect on FICO?

Here's the situation. I'm looking at a move, within the next 60 - 90 days, and am having to buy a new house when I do move. I'll be able to sell my existing house, but the move will happen pretty quickly so I probably won't have the money in hand [more]

Fantastic, great work on raising him to this point!

Re: looking for a cat tree

I think the playfulness depends on the cat. My 10 year olds occasionally go thundering down the hallway after one another like kittens, and another 10 year old is really playful. Enjoy it!

Help with new Airport Extreme setup

I bought a new Airport Extreme, got it set up, but I'm somewhat confused. I thought I would have to create a new password for it, but I didn't realize that I had to create a new network. I don't understand networking very well.
