My house

I offered to sell my house to a neighbor for $70K. I'd be taking a loss on it. Big time. But it's more than I owe on the mortgage and I'd have an extra $700 per month to spend. Plus, I can make up some of the loss on my taxes. Basically, use the loss over the next few years to offset any capital gains income I have. I couldn't take it all in one year, since I don't make that much in capital gains. And you can't use capital losses to offset wage income. Though I don't know how many years I can carry forward the loss. Zzzzzz… sadly, I actually find tax law somewhat interesting.

Anyway, he's gonna look into what kind of financing he can arrange.

Also, I'm using my MacCauley icon for this. It's me, not the Culkin kid. But I use it for exceedingly personal stuff. The house is the big pink elephant I can't really face. Thus the personal. That really leaves only one big bugaboo left at the moment. And it's more recent. (If the house sale thing works out that is.)

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
