<quoted text>Central Florida was one of the areas hardest hit during the mortgage crisis and led the nation in foreclosures. There are still thousands of foreclosures working through the system. Obviously cash buyers are competing for homes in certain areas, those with the "best" buys. Companies such as Nv Florida Real Estate Management scooped up hundreds of homes.
But there are thousands of available homes and worthy buyers who require mortgages are being taken seriously "if" they are pre approved and able to close promptly.
Once again__if it will be your last home a few grand one way or the other shouldn't matter so long as the home suits your needs and the location is to your liking.
There are, actually, hundreds of homes (not sure about thousands) that require mortgages. But the ones in the better locations at the best prices are the ones everyone is competing over. You wouldn't believe how fast they go.

But we did find a very nice home in a good location very close to work and in a good neighborhood, so we're okay paying a little more. It does have a pool which we don't need or want and the insurance is what is costing a bundle. There's also a lake nearby so we have to have flood insurance as well. The insurance is the kicker.

Obama won because he lied about Obamacare and Benghazi - deliberately to win the election - and Mitt Romney.
And Mitt Romney played it too safe in the final stretch.
If the election had been held again last November, the polls say Romney would have won.
pure bs. FOX opinion is nowhere near fact.

and this is not last year. but if it was.....

Do Republicans owe Nate Silver an apology?

The election results closely matched the data-guru's projections the same forecasts conservatives consistently dismissed. Are they ready to eat crow?

"Skewed!" In the lead-up to the election, that conservative cri de coeur met almost every poll showing President Obama with a lead in the Electoral College. And no forecaster bore the brunt of conservative ire more than The New York Times' polling guru, Nate Silver, who steadfastly projected an Obama win with almost cocky certainty, even when Mitt Romney's numbers surged after the first debate. Conservative commentators muttered dark suspicions that Silver was juicing the stats, or voiced skepticism about his methodology, or complained that his projections simply couldn't be right given how close the race was on a national level. But when the votes were counted on Nov. 6, and Obama wrapped up the Electoral College before Virginia or Florida were even called, Silver was vindicated. Many Romney supporters were stunned that Obama had won so decisively. Do conservatives owe Silver an apology?

Yes. Nate Silver crushed the election: "Nate Silver was right," say Jonathan D. Salant and Laura Curtis at Bloomberg. He predicted the correct result in every state, including the nine battleground states (if Florida ends up being officially called for Obama) that theoretically could have gone either way. "Silver infuriated conservatives with his model, which uses a number of measurements and calculations, including attention to state polls," but it turned out to be an incredibly reliable snapshot of the voting electorate.

Conservative media should apologize to their viewers: "On the biggest political story of the year, the conservative media just got its ass handed to it" by Nate Silver, says Conor Friedersdorf at The Atlantic. Bucking Silver's perfectly reasonable conclusions, Fox News luminaries like Karl Rove and Dick Morris predicted a big victory for Romney. The result? Conservative voters went into the election at an "information disadvantage," leaving baffled Romney supporters asking: "Why were we the last to realize that things were going wrong for us?"

Conservative media won't change: The conservative media's problems with the facts reached a nadir when Fox's Rove "frantically strove to deny his own network's call of the presidential election," says Andrew Leonard at Salon. The election's results should be a bracing wake-up call, but "the urge to deny reality runs astoundingly deep at the heart of the right-wing propaganda machine," and "even two terms of Barack Obama might not be enough to cure that sickness."

how you can think that Mitt had any chance of winning without using 'Republican math' is evidently no mystery to Karl Rove.

when your offer is contingent on obtaining a mortgage and another buyer makes a cash offer in the same amount, guess who wins....
You don't think I know that already? I've been breathing, eating and sleeping house hunting in an area where cash buyers are everywhere.

However, the only two homes we had to compete over were with other buyers with loans.

Only homes that were overpriced were usually the ones holding out for cash buyers in ideal locations. You can't compete with that either.

Just like Johnson knew it was unwinnable but escalated it anyway.
However, this was the biggest turning point for me away from Nixon - more than Watergate - when he put his reelection over ending the war sooner.
Just curious. Is there anything Obama could do that would turn you against him? Like if it's proven he actually did lie about Benghazi to win a reelection?
If you were to scoop up the dog sausage the Magic Negro stepped in, Karma would take out a second mortgage to purchase it. from you.

Spanky And Our Gang will never stop playing with you, Lois. Show them a fact and they'll talk about Bush. Show them another fact and they'll talk about Nixon.

Continue presenting them with recent facts and they'll begin to talk about Global Warming and how Romney was against a carbon tax.

The only sensible way to deal with these adolescents is to see the humor in it all.

Nagin's interview with NBC's Matt Lauer:

LAUER: On the political front, it's no secret, doesn't have to be a Katrina's secret, you did not have a very good working relationship with the governor of Louisiana at that time, Kathleen Blanco. As a matter of fact, when she ran for office you crossed party lines and you supported her opponent Bobby Jindal. And when you called to break the news to her, she said, according to you, quote,'There will be hell to pay.' Do you think that that actually contributed enough friction to where she was uncooperative with helping you and the City of New Orleans?

NAGIN: I don't know about that, but I think there was some residuals. Our relationship was not the best. But there were some things going on above me that I think contributed to her hesitancy more than anything. The Republican president, Democratic governor, arguing over the Posse Comitatus Act that was passed way back in who knows when.

LAUER: And it's funny because President Bush looked at it from the other way, he worried that a Republican president coming into a state with a Democratic governor and a largely African-American population and declaring martial law basically would be viewed very badly.

(Later on in the interview...)

LAUER: What was the biggest mistake you made?

NAGIN: Well, you know, it was a catastrophic event. We all made mistakes at every level of government. But I think the thing that I worry about and I think about the most is could I have called a mandatory evacuation much earlier. It was the first one in the almost 300-history of the City of New Orleans. I had about an eight to ten-hour window overnight where I could have called it.
