    It was sarcasm. Sensitive bunch here.
    In the future i won’t point out the esteemed times sounded more like a village voice article.
    I was merely pointing out that $600 seemed cheap and the dude looked like he hasn’t been able to pay rent ever. Almost looked like a parody article in the onion.
    That fucking rent wouldn’t get you a trailer in Myrtle beach and John Q. Public doesn’t care about a fucking underemployed hipster musician.
    Plenty of people play music at night after their day jobs. The guy was clearly half employed before the crisis.
    That’s all.

    I get your point. They should have picked more sympathetic working man for the piece. Thereís plenty of working class families out of the 2.5 million people living there, pick a single dad or mom with 5 kids and not your wifeís brother or whatever for the story because you are lazy.

    Manbums aside, if RE value is derived from the sanctity of contract law in the USA and contract law is on vacation until TBD, where does that leave RE value?

    So we put this house on the market again late-February. Dow was like 29,000, coronavirus seemed far away. Things changed, obviously. But we left it on the market, figured the exposure can't hurt anything but certainly didn't expect anything at all as far as interest until all this has simmered down, if then.

    But a party of interest has emerged. Selling a house in the throes of a pandemic is...different. At first they asked for a tour/viewing/whatever the correct term is, and we declined. Too crazy to have strangers in the house. Plus, we have 5 people here, everybody's working on stuff, the weather has been pretty shitty and everything's closed so we can't even wait in a coffee shop or whatever, so we said No Thanks.

    But they persisted. The other day, through the realtor, they asked if they could walk around outside. I had to go out for a bit and they came while I was gone, but a couple with 4 children came and walked around outside. Apparently everyone here was too petrified of them, or the virus, or something, to even just open a door and wave and call out a greeting, which seemed odd to me and had to be weird for our visitors.

    I kinda figured that would be the end of it, but still they persist. We got a request that we allow their realtor into the house to do a facetime tour. The agent would wear gloves and a mask and not touch anythng in the house. Still that was too much for some of the people here, and we declined yet again.

    Yet they refuse to be deterred. So now on Saturday my daughter and I will be conducting a facetime tour for them. My daughter's gonna run the camera, they'll say where to go and what to look at, and I'll be there to answer any questions. Should be weird but who knows what will happen.

    As our agent said, he's spent his entire career trying to get as many people into houses as possible, but now he's trying to figure out how to keep them out. We'll see what happens. I'm not holding my breath. But I would so take the money and run.

    Donít look a gift horse in the mouth.

    Unless this is some psycho babble subliminal thought that you donít want to sell, in which case carry on.

    Congrats on hooking a seemly very interested party. But this bit above would be just too temping to me. Dress the hounds up in costume, flip a few pics or art upside-down, have someone in the gym exercising in a bizarre way, maybe something outside in the yard just glimpsed through the picture window - what ever you can think of and have it just on the edge of the frame. And give any explanation in a deadpanned kind of way.

    Best of luck with it all!

    What? No. It's just been odd and I thought I might try to convey that for entertainment purposes. I even said I'd take the money and run at the end there.

    good luck ice

    seeing a good amount of panic listing as well as buying where i look, as well as more competitive pricing mid-range, and a decent amount of small time portfolios unloading it all.

    Fair enough, I always got this vibe you were just "selling" but not really. I mean, it is a pretty cool house, I wouldn't be eager to leave.

    I also can't argue with Steve Miller if they are going to give you that nut right now in the current situation. Good luck with the sale.

    Yeah selling this place is a goal but not an extremely urgent one. But I've been trying to finalize this move for over 2 years and shit keeps happening. The first time we tried to sell it the China tarriffs went into effect like a week later and there was a lot of uncertainty in real estate and the stock market dropped like 10% or more. This time it's coronavirus and all that it entails.

    I'm afraid to take it off the market and try again later, who knows wtf would happen then but I would have to believe it would include zombies.
