12/15   Does anyone have experience investing in apartment buildings
        I'm not really looking to invest, but I want an apartment
        to live in, and I'm not happy with the leases I'm encountering
        for instance one requires 2 years of tax returns with the
        application. I'm in a position to buy a building, but I've
        got no experience with this, and I don't want to learn that
        it was a bad by losing a lot of money. --jwm.
        \_ I bought a two unit building and live in the top. It has
           worked out pretty well for me. Email me if you want more
           info. -ausman
        \_ jsl and I run a small 4-unit, and have for a while.  Property
           management can be a lot of work. You could hire property
           managers to do it for you but it cuts into income. -mehlhaff

8/1     Suppose your house is already paid off and you retire at 65.
        How much expense does one expect to spend a year, in the Bay
        Area? Property tax will be about $10K/year for a modest $850K
        home. What about other stuff?
        \_ I think at age 65, health insurance is the next biggest expense.
        \_ I am thinking that we can have a nice middle class

6/3     Why are "real estate" and "real property" called so?  Does the part
        "real" mean something like "not fake"?
        \- without going into a long discourse into common law,
           it is to distinguish land/fixed property from intangible
           property [like a patent] and movable, personal property,
           like your car. Real property has historically had special

3/10    I'm trying to help my parents, in their mortgage there's an
        "escrow" amount. What exactly is this? From reading Google,
        the loan company uses the escrow account to pay for home
        insurance, but they've been paying home insurance themselves.
        I'm really confused on what this fee is.
        \_ Without an escrow account, you write checks to your insurance

        Poor cities pay more % of prop tax than wealthy cities.

4/17    Questions about recruiting below.  Thanks.
        1. Why are different positions called full-time, contracting, and
        intern, with "full-time" meaning regular permanent positions?
        Contracting and intern positions are usually 40 hours/week which would
        imply they are full-time (i.e. not part-time) also.
        2. What's the difference between temp, contracting, and consulting
