Have you rented the DVDs "Pacific Heights" and "The Money Pit", or do you already own them?

Looks like this one's gonna work out OK, as long as your MIL doesn't bring down the neighborhood rental values like mine did.


The book written on, "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement", on sale now! For more info see "About Me" in my profile.
I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.

Betty is a sweetheart - she would do us credit if she was resident. Now Pacific Heights is required viewing for any landlord - pssht - you know that! That movie makes my stomach hurt. The Money Pit is far too light hearted - the contractors are just normal folks as far as can be told - not evil or unexpected.

Nice location calmloki. We stayed in La Quinta for several days on one of our winter warm-up trips in 2007 and really enjoyed the area.
