Why does buying a house have to require moving to another state?
You are who is confused. America is not capitalist. It is a COMBINATION of capitalism & socialism, and there are many things that conservatives LIKE about the Government (state & federal) telling us how to live our lives (ex. the 2nd Amendment, Mississippi abortion law, immigration laws when enforced by ICE, criminal laws enforced by police, 10 states which ban Affirmative Action, etc) We don't call the government "filthy" on these issues, do we ?You are confused Moon Bat. Conservatives don't want the friggin government telling them how to run their lives.
Capitalism isn't neither fair or unfair. It is market realism. Socialism is unfair because it uses the filthy government to steal from the productive to give to the unproductive.
But not if YOU needed them. You're just a selfish creep who doesn't think outside of your own little box. Someday somebody will sue your greedy ass, and leave you with nothing. Then all your high & mighty ideas will be out the window.Public housing and rent control.
Two liberal ideas that make things worse.
Form follows function. IF an industry needs to be regulated (to protect the public), it should be. Sometimes government goes too far and regulates too much. Donald Trump eliminated many business regulations. Most of them deserved to be eliminated, and Trump was right.Why not everything? If you think housing should be regulated to serve your interests, why not every other industry?
Donald Trump faced it admirably for 4 years. When he left, our border was more secure than at any time since the 1950s. Biden is who created the current immigration train wreck.Another brilliant example of a problem that maybe should or should not be addressed. Preventing very wealthy foreigners from driving real estate prices and rental prices up would be a direct kick in the teeth to the capitalist system!
But then everybody look closely to see if you are all of a sudden arguing on the wrong side?
The only question that arises out of that idea of Biden allowing wealthy foreigners, etc., etc. .........
And so what would happen if Biden made a move to curtail that? Does anyone have the courage to face that question?
Absolutely we are afraid of a free market. when a market is 1005 free, it can run roughshod over everybody and everything. No better example than the sleazey landlords free to destroy Florida's housing market just for their own personal greedYou are afraid of the free market so you you want the friggin government to protect your sorry ass?
Go find another $500 a month apartment and stop your whining.
If you can't find one to your liking then tough shit.
You should have bought a home during the time when the prices were low and interest rates reasonable.
In retirement I live in a four bedroom home on a half acre of land, big garage, and a pool and my payments are just barely over $500/mo. In fact I have enough money in savings to easily pay off the mortgage but it is better to carry the mortgage and keep the money invested.
Don't go whining to us about your poor life choices.
Stop being a sorry shithead that thinks the government should force the people that invested in your apartment building to provide you with indirect welfare.
Yes, I have a small bit of land that I rent out for vehicle storage. That is, when I'm able to get renters.So you have been LYING this whole time. I was looking for alternatives for you. That is POS MOVE if you did this.
Are you a LANDLORD? As you just stated.
Keeping rents affordable enough so that AMERICANS can pay them, and not just a bunch of Biden's rich foreigner migrants, is not "running a charity". It is doing things in such a way that Americans are protected, same as when construction companies use materials expensive enough that they are safe to keep their buildings from collapsing.Landlords have an investment that they need to get the highest possible rate of return on. They are not in the business of running a charity.
If he wants free housing then he should go to a homeless shelter. If he wants a $500/mo apartment it looks like he will have to look elsewhere.
NOT correct. I have no costs on the land that I rent for vehicle storage.The rent you charge covers the cost of your mortgage. Correct? If not you're not considered a reasonable man by IRS standards. Because of this I assume that your rents cover your costs. Extrapolating that thought process out, if you were to sell your property, you would demand a fair market value as you should. What you don't seem to get is that the new owner now has a mortgage that costs him more (because you demanded fair market in the sale). Are you calling him "greedy" because he cares to recoup his costs? If you are, as you seem to be, you are an ignorant asshole. The world and society don't owe you a thing. If your rent increases--that's life. The landlord doesn't owe you a living or a place to stay or moving costs. Stand on your own two feet and quit looking for a free lunch. My goodness, are you really a commie after spending time in the armed forces?
OMG! Are all the intelligent people in this forum reading this, believing their eyes ?If you keep repeating the same unsupportable claptrap, don't be surprised if you get the same logical answers. You also whined, "This isn't a about business and costs" Au contraire, slow one, that is EXACTLY what it is about. You are trying to deny a "business owner" a fair return on his investment while distributing the landlord's income to some parasitic deadbeat renter. If the shoe fits--put it on, moron.
They did in the last ten months. I absorbed the cost. I didn't get fuel controls.
Landlords cannot raise prices to the extent that a major % of Americans can't afford them, moron. That would be counter productive. A landlord would not raise rents any higher than the market will bear. Why would he leave his property empty and providing no return. Maybe you don't meet the IRS definition of a reasonable man. SMFH. You are incapable of understanding logic.
Moving to another state is not required
Record highs and lows to close out 2021
The median home-sale price in Florida, hit a new all-time high as the number of homes for sale hit a new rock bottom—this, combined with potential uncertainty stemming from the omicron coronavirus variant, could fuel a competitive start to 2022.
Absolutely we are afraid of a free market. when a market is 1005 free, it can run roughshod over everybody and everything. No better example than the sleazey landlords free to destroy Florida's housing market just for their own personal greed
Yes I should/could have bough a home when prices were normal, but nobody anticipated the election fraud, Biden "winning" & Biden's open border lunacy and the resulting housing madness.
Rent control is not indirect welfare. It is more like laws against robbery, burglary,
I can afford to pay my cost of housing.Keeping rents affordable enough so that AMERICANS can pay them, and not just a bunch of Biden's rich foreigner migrants, is not "running a charity". It is doing things in such a way that Americans are protected, same as when construction companies use materials expensive enough that they are safe to keep their buildings from collapsing.
Same as when drug companies spend money on research to ensure that their drugs are not harmful. Same as when car manufacturers up the cost (and thereby lower the sales) of their cars by providing safety features.
These things are done to PROTECT (notice my display name ?) the American people, same as rent control is done to protect Americans from rent gougers.
PS - the point of reference in this thread is renters being faced with exhorbitant rent increases, not landlords.
