Re: Roofing Question Ice Build Up

How is your attic vented? It is possible they did not install a new ridge vent correctly.

Re: Your favorite Costco wines?

I drink Malbec. I love Crios Malbec for the price (not at Costco that I have seen).

Kirkland Malbec is undrinkable.

(edit to add): I also agree Kirkland Prosecco is pretty good for the price.

Scenario where bond funds are better than a CD ladder: You want to hold fixed income in your 401k, and your 401k doesn't have CDs but has an intermediate bond fund.

Re: Purchasing A Home

It sounds like you are already familiar with the area. If that's the case it shouldn't take too long to find a suitable home if there's a lot for sale in your area. How long has the home been on the market?

Re: what is your weekly workout routine?

Lift progressively heavy barbells in the squat, overhead press, and deadlift. You'll be more useful to yourself and everyone around you. This. Starting Strength is a good place to start.

Re: negotiating a home purchase (price reduction v work done by seller)

House flipper? It would have to be an amazing deal. I would be surprised if any of the repairs and updates have been done correctly.

Come to CT. I'll give you $100 to rake leaves for a day. You can even use my leaf blower.

Re: Too much house? (nervous 1st time buyer)

Assuming you have little to no consumer debt, you should be in good shape. The house isn't too expensive.

My #1 question at this point would be: How good is the reno? Does it just look nice, or were things done correctly.

Re: Toyota Camry Repair Priorities

This really sounds like a dealer's list to make some money. That seems like a lot of work for a car of that age unless it was truly neglected. I would take the car somewhere else. My thoughts in bold: 1) Valve cover gasket leaks oil: This may be a problem that can leave you stranded if the spark plu...
