If buyer makes a very low offer, we typically reply with "too low to counter". If we get lots of offers in that range we will tell seller that property was not prices at market and must re-asses. All offers, even lowball offers are presented to seller (if buyer agrees to put them In writing , even email is fine) [ Reply | More ]

OP: Thanks. The broker has been hounding me for my offer for days. I basically told her to back off and that my offer will be sent when I'm ready. Both the owner and broker have used the 'other offers on the table' to get me moving. I only saw the place 4 days ago, and have barely done my research. They obviously don't have other offers on the table. Asses. [ Reply | More ]

There are no secrets. Meanwhile, Gary Johnson doesn't know Aleppo and was thankful that no one was hurt in the bombings (when 31 people actually were) - I appreciate his support for pot, but maybe he shouldn't actually be smoking it personally if he wants to run for president. And Stein has some trouble with actual science. So, Clinton is the most qualified person to run for president in our country's history, she's got my vote!

So much for fighting climate change, here's Gary's view on the environment: 2.2 Environment Competitive free markets and property rights stimulate the technological innovations and behavioral changes required to protect our environment and ecosystems. Private landowners and conservation groups have a vested interest in maintaining natural resources. Governments are unaccountable for damage done to our environment and have a terrible track record when it comes to environmental protection. Protecting the environment requires a clear definition and enforcement of individual rights and responsibilities regarding resources like land, water, air, and wildlife. Where damages can be proven and quantified in a court of law, restitution to the injured parties must be required. [ Reply | More ]

I would go see a doctor. Do you have any other symptoms? It also could jsut be that your body chemistry changed. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Recently, I feel like I have just had enough of trying to keep the peace and make nice to not rock the boat. I put up with too much stuff at work and took it all with a smile, but now I am done. I put up with too much nonsense with my kids and wrote it off as "kids will be kids" but I'm not going to play nice when someone's kid is being a shit to my kid just to keep the peace anymore. Anyone know what I mean? I'm so tired of sucking it up all the damn time! 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I think I partially know what you mean, but I tend not to put myself in these situations. I know your job may be harder, but with my kids? If someone in the family annoys us? We kind of rule them out. I let no one harass my kids. They have plenty of friends and so do I. We just move onto the next. [ Reply | More ]

Thank you! I'm usually very hard core in my own personal life that if someone crosses me, they are done. But I think I've been much more forgiving of my kids' friends b/c, well, they're kids. However, now I'm over it. I think my son was shocked today when for the first time he got all upset about a situation and I was like, yes, that's it. Don't talk to that kid anymore, he's no longer your friend! I feel like of bad that I didn't back him more when he was younger and always tried to get him to work it out and be friends with people. It's a tough balance. [ Reply | More ]

I think some parents in their quest to be fair and nice do their kids a disservice. Dont teach your kid to be a people pleasing doormat. I have no qualms telling my kids "I dont like the way xxx treats you and he is not welcome in our home for a while." Doesnt mean the kid is out forever, but we only invite kids that make us feel good/happy and are fun. [ Reply | More ]

Yes and no. I like to be firm but nice at work but don't let anyone walk over me. Ditto with family. I'm very pliant and understanding but there is a breaking point for sure. And with your kid, I do think you need to be in his/her corner and ask him/her to speak up when the s happens. [ Reply | More ]
