    Sold my rental this year. Have an old sports car that needs work. Feel free to work on it for me while you wait it out.

    Haha, what kind of car do you have? When you sold the rental was it performing decent or did you get tired of taking care of tenets/upkeep etc.? I mainly am a little cautious about the craziness of materials/houses - it's basically a perfect storm for really high values

    Stingray Corvette. Wish it was a classic 911. But then it'd REALLY never run.

    When a tenant would leave I would always list the place for sale (at an abnormally high price) and rent. I never really WANT to sell. The market was HOT, got tons of offers, sold it while it was up. I bought in an up-and-coming area long ago (East Downtown) - so it made sense for me to get out.

    Rentals are work, sure, but it's not that big of deal to me. I know people (companies) that would make honest repairs when needed. I did have a problem tenant from time-to-time. I will miss the tax shenanigans. Until I find a new one. Not buying in THIS market though.

    Man, very nice car! I'm looking at something like an older vette/911 eventually (some day.....)

    I think that was a great idea, especially in Austin either make a lot selling the property over value or renting for higher than normal.

    Yeah, I definitely agree with you on not buying in this market... If I find something further out that makes sense on price I'll do it since I'm not looking to flip - assuming the price is not insane. I won't be buying more in Austin any time soon though. I mean it might be an unrealistic goal to even take on more property in this market regardless of spot - so I have been taking my time on doing anything.

    That's awesome on the companies and finding honest work. I got a ton of experience growing up on all kinds of labor intensive work helping maintain my parents 4 plex a long time ago - I basically became the maintenance man by 10th grade... It was interesting when I'd show up to fix various things for adults. I can basically do just about anything except roofs (it's not the labor, I'm tall and I don't like getting on that 2nd story + - the ladder isn't the concern it's the steeper roofs once I'm off the ladder). They eventually sold their apartment and while I didn't like the work at the time and was basically free labor as a kid it paid off big gaining all sorts of skills though.

    https://ir.byrna.com/news-events/pr...na-technologies-to-commence-trading-on-nasdaq

    nasdaq listing finally completed. not much pop as it already ran up in anticipation of listing. sold off 3/4 of my position today for 65% gain after holding it for 6 months. not the biggest or fastest win, but these days i'll take ANY win lol. used some of the $ to start positions in wdc and stx as my chia/crypto derivative play.

    i dont know why but this one really pisses me off. I have been following this company for over a year and would have timed it perfectly.
