Enjoy those $10k+ yearly property taxes to pay for such a thing!
First, my property tax is $5600, not $10k. We own a 2200 square foot townhouse which includes three full and one half bathrooms, three bedrooms, combination living room, dining room and an eat-in kitchen on the main floor, fire place, and a finished walk-out basement. Even the two-car garage is all dry walled. BTW, with two Lexus cars in it. Would you like a picture?
Second, everything is relative. My last salary just before I retired was $117k plus $35k bonus. That, of course, was per year. What is yours?
After retiring, my income took a dive, obviously. Between the Social Security benefits and the interest on our CD's, it's about $90k. I think I can afford $5.6k property tax, don't you think so, or am I overlooking something?
unlike in the glorious United States of Dysfunction.
Just curious to know how and why you came up with that "dysfunction". I am not only not offended, which is a default reaction to everything lately, but I agree with you. I am sincerely interested in you POV on that matter. I could tallk about how dysfunctional the US is for a day and half and still not be done.
Let me know what is on your list. I think the mods will forgive a little digression.
