Man, that turned out nice, Grouch. Are you SURE you want to sell it now?
I get it. I have a screwed up back and left knee issue. Wife is eat up with rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis and our daughter is disabled too. Back and arthritis issues for her. I hated having to sell my PT GT to pay doctor bills, but that was the only resource I had at the time. It's tough for all 3 of us getting in and out of my Kia Forte, but I'm stuck with it for at least another year until I can trade it. Next vehicle will be some type of SUV, Van or CUV. Not sure which brand as they all seem to have their issues nowadays.
Yeah, I live on my Social Security and most of that "increase" we got the first of the year will be going to my mortgage company now. I upped the coverage on my house because of a recent appraisal and now the payment is going up $103 a month to make up an escrow shortage. Of course, that shortage is just an ESTIMATE by the mortgage company, and if it's too much, I'll get a refund NEXT JANUARY. What a racket these mortgage companies have.
Have you been to an ENT doctor about your balance issues? You might have ear crystals and there are some very simple exercises you can do at home to get rid of them. I had an issue with my balance a couple of years ago and tried this exercise called the Eply maneuver. IT worked for me. You may want to give it a try. Here's what I did. This is from Johns Hopkins.
What happens during the home Epley maneuver?
- Start by sitting on a bed.
- Turn your head 45 degrees to the right.
- Quickly lie back, keeping your head turned. ...
- Turn your head 90 degrees to the left, without raising it. ...
- Turn your head and body another 90 degrees to the left, into the bed. ...
- Sit up on the left side.
That's 80% of my current mortgage payment.Nearly $100,000 and his monthly payment was $1200.
We just received our annual escrow statement. Insurance went up slightly, but the killer was the real estate property taxes went up by almost $300/year. Result is the mortgage payment increasing by $75/month. The reason for the tax increase was multiple factors - the property values were reassessed and tax rate increase. This is done every 4 years. By state law the tax rate changes to reflect the updated values, however, the county supervisors raised the tax rate so more or less a double whammy - assessed value went up and the tax rate went up. It'll be another 4 years before they reassessed the values.I upped the coverage on my house because of a recent appraisal and now the payment is going up $103 a month to make up an escrow shortage.
