Nothing different. It is just another leap year.

Purron-

DW and I lived in the DC area (on the VA side) for nine years. We sold a few years ago. Although we made money (not as much as if we'd sold earlier), my one piece of advice is to not chase the market down. We did that and it caused us to have to wait to sell it. Fortunately, we could rent it at close to neutral cash flow while we waited. But, we'd have been smarter to price it aggressively from the start.

I'm/DW are "working" on our 7th President since we starting investing in '82, and have yet to make any investment decisions based upon person/party.

We don't expect to change anytime soon ...

Did I miss one?

There have been five Presidents since 1982, and the upcoming one, if different, would be six.

Did you perhaps mean seven Presidential elections?

Just continue doing whatever we are doing and stay happy. The world will keep revolving and the economy will remain the same after election day. After all, I honestly don't think any of the candidates is having the solution. For me, I'll just park my investment somewhere safe (as I did during past couple of months) and stay put until things get settled down. Cheers
