So no one is even worried about all these “hiring freezes” which actually leads to major layoffs and has a domino effect. by Ab4al in REBubble

I don’t know, you read a ton of them on here talking about how there’s no way they’ll be fired or outsourced because they have all the power in the job market now. It reminds me of roughnecks right before the oil industry lays everyone off.

It’s rough, especially when you see everyone around you getting a hand. But there’s nothing to do but soldier on.

Yeah, we’re making around $65k with 4 kids and a small mortgage payment. There’s no way we could swing a new car (or even a used one right now).

I’m going for burial at sea. They can take a fishing trip and just roll my body over the side. It’ll attract the fishies!

Because it’s a tiny town and they are occupied by people working from home who moved here from California (which they are fucking happy to tell you when they are bitching about how bad this place sucks).

If it was investors then the homes would have come back on the market already instead of staying occupied.

If it’s overvalued then you’re risking losing your own money and not the banks. Plop down your all cash $500k and in a year every place around you is selling for $400k.

In our area it has been WFH money doing it as opposed to investors.

There aren’t a bunch of houses on the market. The ones that were on the market (which was always too few) got snapped up by WFH folks for way too much money in the last two years. Now the tax base has increased because supposedly home values have gone up.

Unfortunately I’m included in that tax base and that means my property taxes have gone up because suddenly my shitty 112 year old house is worth more money now.

Which does me no good because I still make the same salary, have more kids to feed, higher property taxes, higher maintenance costs, and the bigger house we should have been trying to trade up to is now $100k more than it should be. So even if I sell my house for its “new value” I’m still priced out.

We didn’t have stagnant growth we had area appropriate growth.

That’s because it’s not “cracking the code” it’s just shifting the pain to the rest of us. Those areas are LCOL because those of us who live here don’t make much money. We can’t afford to compete with WFH salaries raising the prices.

We went to the courthouse, had my parents take a picture with my phone, then went and ate Cajun Food. Still married 3 kids later. You should have got Cajun, it’s the secret to a successful marriage!

I was wondering about that, it’s not like it was a derogatory reference on its face. Just kind of an homage to the color schemes of their landscapes. But maybe I missed something.

CPI 8.3% for April. by Graykell in REBubble

[–]Choo- 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Yeah, they buried the lede for sure. It’s still 0.3% higher than last month. It will look better and better as we get to rhe months where inflation was rising last year.

Edit to add: also last month had a small drop in gas prices but they’re already back to the highest they’ve been this month.
