|Man cannot live on hamburger alone.|
I had no idea what Jesus was doing in this painting until I Googled it and found out it represents the Sacred Heart Of Jesus. Then I found the exact same painting on this website.
Check it out. It's out of stock I'll sell the painting right now to you guys for a mere $250. Anyone?
Greg was over at the house yesterday, cleaning it with one arm, when the neighbor approached him and asked him what happened to her boyfriend? Greg had to inform her that her boyfriend is a broke loser and she had no idea.
"You chose poorly.", he told her.
Then she told Greg that the reason our tenant changed the locks is because he had yet another subleaser living with him in December, who was actually arrested at a pawnshop, for breaking and entering, and stealing from all the homes in the neighborhood and getting caught trying to pawn stolen property. WOW! We had no clue any of that was happening. I'm thinking we should go around and give people our numbers in the neighborhood. That is just scary and horrible and we're so lucky to have our home in one piece.
So now we're torn on whether to sell the house or rent it out again. Home prices have climbed an amazing 27 percent just since January! We've made a tidy little profit on that house. Greg talked to a real estate agent that said the inventory is so low in Las Vegas right now, he could sell the house in three days if we listed it. Our concern is that we'd have to pay capital gains on the profit and we would be unable to replace the income, since it's unlikely we'd be able to easily pick up another home with the changing market.
What to do. What to do.
I was reading an article the other day that talked about the "passive income" one can make buying homes and renting them and I seriously laughed out loud. Passive income? Really? Passive income is putting your money in the bank and getting interest, not tracking it down each month, like bounty hunters.
I'll be thinking of the passive income all weekend when I'm over there cleaning our former tenant's toilet.
