    Well, for starters, because I said so. But seriously, the kitchen is dated. Counters are tile, The cabinets could be refinished, but then you have refinished cabinets that look like they belong in a tract housing, and not befitting of someone who has a Ferrari in the garage. Plus, new state of the art appliances are a must.

    Remote listings attracted 41.8% of Bend residents’ applications for jobs featured on LinkedIn. And on the list of larger metros, out of a total number of job applications from Cape Coral, Fla., residents, 33.1% were for remote work opportunities.

    The places where residents expressed the strongest interest in remote work are also popular vacation destinations. “Your cost of living goes down, but the beach is closer,” said George Anders, LinkedIn’s senior editor at large. “For a lot of people this is just a better deal. You live where you want and then you look for work somewhere else. And thanks to laptops and Skype and everything else you’ve got the ability to stay connected and get a job that could be a thousand miles away from where you’re living.”

    That's what I was getting at with the 80s tv show reference. The house is as dated as Selleck's shorts.

    What percentage of American workers do you think are currently working from home? In March of 2021, 21%. 79% were leaving their home like the old days.

    Well, compared to the houses I've been looking at that thing is a screaming deal. They want over a million for a glorified shed in Santa Cruz. Ott's house is worth a fortune now.

    Yeah, but I'm going to guess that % has tripled or quadrupled during the pandemic. Definitely enough to screw up local RE markets even if it's a minority of workers.

    if you rtfa they say it peaked at 35% in may 2020. I think it’s more who got to newly work from home (rich techies) than mass of numbers.

    Oooh, you just know their agent tried to persuade them to hire stagers and they were like "what do you mean? Our furniture is lovely!"

    Edited to add: what's with the blue undercabinet lighting? Think that's UV for sterilization, or just bad taste?

    From the signs of traffic in the last 6 months I'd agree with that...rush hour is back to rush hour again...just not quite as bad as pre-covid....but still bad.

    Also, the asking price for that place is bonkers. Unless they get what they're asking, in which case I'll be abandoning all hope of moving up there and staying here in PDX the rest of my life.

    I know you're not considering that house, but just as an fyi, you do NOT want to live in Trickle Creek. There's a major hazardous liquid pipeline right behind the houses on the west side of the main road, a second one less than 1500 ft west, and an LNG trunk line about 1000 ft north.

    I can't believe the audacity of 700 for that tacky manor. Those houses sold in the low threes when they were built, and were a tough sell at that. Mt Baker Hwy is loud and has 18 wheelers going to/from Canada all day, and in the summer you can hear Hannegan Speedway.

    So from what I’ve seen it is basically 3x right now as the pre-COVID number reported by BLS was around 7% from what I can tell.
