    Maybe. Depends what remote job you are doing, and how hard it is to find talent. Everyone but a few senior execs worked from home the past 12 months at my employer. So finance, accounting, billing, credit and collections, purchasing, marketing and customer service. Company did quite well during that time. So, every job except the building maintenance mgr. was able to do the WFH thing. We have a flex schedule and depending on what level you are you can work remote one or two days a week.

    Time as it always does, will tell how things shake out long term.

    n a hyper-competitive job market that favors specialized workers like those focused on technology, it is shortsighted for companies to consider cutting salaries of those who want to make permanent remote work arrangements prompted by COVID-19.

    But a new Dice survey finds that one in 10 technologists say they have been asked to take a pay cut if they don't plan to return to the office. Facebook and Twitter have reportedly reduced salaries for employees who've moved to less expensive areas, and Google is considering a similar plan. On the flip side, Reddit and Zillow are among employers encouraging workplace flexibility, and a separate Dice survey found that 28% of companies have increased salaries to attract technologists from high cost-of-living tech hubs.

    This is for dirt pimps so it doesn't have to be exact, just something to show clients.

    so it’s a timeshare sales pitch using numbers since 1941

    ya coulda made, and lost, many fortunes in that time.

    He’s used that “I pretty much understand” qualifier on other topics, yet he’s so cocksure about everything.

    I still think if you can buy something unique and/or rare right now you are going to continue to see lots of upside year after year.

    Not seeing that in CB, CO. Phone is ringing off the hook, back to back to back buyers looking at property tomorrow, most new listings go under contract in a week or less. Today felt as crazy as July, although fall is often pretty busy.

    Needs to be put next to median wages

    Oh, and, average bank CEO compensation over that period. That would be interesting. Inflation adjusted, of course.

    The Island looks great. If there are fish in them there waters it looks downright dreamy.

    My deceased uncle bought into an Island on a beautiful lake in the ADKs in the early 80s. The home is an early 1900s cedar sided beauty with a 100 foot covered porch. There is nothing quite like the peace of being on the island, but it is a shit ton of work. Everything has to come over in the boat. From groceries to tools to propane tanks and toilet paper. And garbage has to be brought back off the island as well as the empty propane tanks. He was a workaholic professor and spent his summers completing major freaking projects, some of which included me as the free teenage labor. He had more energy and time than $$ so he was always working to keep up with mother nature. (Roofs, dock, painting, boat house, septic, mowing lawn)

    If you can put a low upkeep seasonal cabin up you will have a blast. Sounds like that is what it will be limited to given being off the grid. Dont underestimate the PIA of putting every thing in the boat and then bringing it to the cabin in rainy, windy shitty weather. As people age the extra leg of the trip can wear on you.

    I don't mean to piss on your island, as it looks fantastic and I would do it if I was single and did not have to make compromises with a significant other. I just wanted you to really think about the extra step for each trip to the store.

    My uncle loved his place. He died of a heart attack 3 years ago after he tied up at the boathouse on the landside. He loved that lake and island. Frankly, I cannot imagine a better way to go if it was as quick as is thought. In a boat, on a lake. My cousin, who has no kids, now spends 120+ days a year there and is loving it.

    A simple dock and one or two room cabin with direct TV to catch football would be awesome for me.

    I hope you do it and love it!

    Guys, play your cards right like ol uncle Benny and you too can retire a thousandaire with no heirs, a mortgage and living out your retirement years in Connecticut.

    If interest rates go up to even 16 levels this market is fucked. No way these prices can be sustained if rates go to even 4%. But your mortgage at 2.25% may still be less than the new price at 4%. So winning?

    Hahahaha!

    The housing market has barely beat inflation in the long term. It was only during 1990-2006 that housing even came close to equities.

    As dunfee said, the stock market made and lost fortunes in that time and still outperformed the housing market.

    That being said, any individuals experience (depending on location, what stocks were held, etc) may differ.
