2022.01.22 01:46 shinjirarehen Am I being smart or stupid? With this crazy housing market I can't even tell.
I want to start off my saying I know this is a stupid first world problem and we're incredibly privileged to even be in this conundrum.
We're trying to buy the house nextdoor for my elderly mum. Our place, which we bought years ago before prices went insane, is quite small and we have two kids so she can't really live with us. This is in Wellington, the house is 80sqm, 2 bedrooms 1 bath, not in great shape. Building report said it'll need a new roof within 5 years and there are moisture issues and a whole list of other things. But the location makes it attractive for us (close to the grandkids and all that, and want to help mum out when her health isn't good).
There was a tender in December and we put in an offer of $1.011m (which made me want to throw up it's so insane for an average-as 80sqm house, but we held our nose and did it). This is literally all our money, plus all my mum's money, plus the max the bank will lend us. They came back wanting $1.025m, and we had to say sorry no, because we literally don't have any more money. We figured someone else offered that much and let it go.
Come to find out, the place didn't sell and there were no tenders higher than ours. The owner (boomer who inherited the place free and clear from her own mother, who bought it for like $45k in the 80s) just wants more money, because she wants it. A month later, it's still sitting there for sale.
So we go back to the agent this week and say we're still keen at our original offer price. He says he tried to talk her into it, but she won't budget from $1.025m. Maybe we could borrow money from friends and live off credit cards for a while and make up the $14k difference, but I'd genuinely be worried about paying our bills and making ends meet. It would stretch us beyond.
Am I stupid to let this go over $24k when it will probably go up 10x that in a year (again, barf)? I feel like we'd just be playing into boomer greed and everything making housing a nightmare in this country. But it's probably true that I wouldn't regret it 10 years from now or whatever? Maybe I'm just letting my distaste for this process cloud my better judgement. What would you do?

2022.01.22 01:46 Sad_Mode6170 So uh, who killed hongjun's parents??
⚠️ THIS IS FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE EITHER READ THE NOVEL AT LEAST PAST CH 60 OR FOR THOSE WHO DONT MIND MAJOR SPOILERS ⚠️ I just read chapter 60-61 of tbfyl and am generally wondering if everything that hongjun saw was a dream, or if there was some truth to it regarding his parents' death. And... what exactly is Li Jinglong? Is he a mortal with powers or what? Perhaps the guy who killed hongjun's parents was like.. Li Jinglong's father or something? Is Li Jinglong destined to kill Hongjun? Is Hongjun THE Mara, or does he just have a devil seed inside him? How did he become like this? So many questions 😥

2022.01.22 01:46 victoriaanguyen Super duper puff sizing help
Does anyone know if the super duper puff is oversized or TTS?
I’m 125lb 5’1” and wear a size 4 in the effortless pants, size small or XS in tops.
The description online says the model is wearing a 2 which is a “small or medium” in other aritzia clothes and a 1 is a “XXS or XS” which I’m definitely not an xxs.
I would like to have a little room for layering in case I’m wearing a thick sweater but not so much space that it looks like I’m swimming in it since I’m so short.
If anyone has the super duper puff what size did you get and how is the fit?

2022.01.22 01:46 StrategySuccessful44 Stupid quick question
My dr phoned in my refills to Walgreens. Unfortunately I have no insurance but using good rx I should be able to pay. IF I GO TO RITE AID. I don’t even know how any of this works Walgreens tells me price of Prozac #180 is 293., GoodRx can take to like 99. Good rx takes it to like 30 at rite aid. So question is can I call Walgreens and ask that they 3 rx’s they counted and packaged for me be sent to rite aid?? It’s crummy thing to do but lotsa money. Prozac adderal gabapentin.

2022.01.22 01:46 HopScotchLegend Wondering what the best boundry EQ andHF trip settings on my monitors are in relation to my preamp and turntable.
Wondering what the best setting for my monitors and pre amp are, boundry eq and HF trim wise. The preamp is connected to a mackie bignob which is conected to a fluance RT-83 turntable with ortofon blue cartdrige. Here are pics of my 2 JBl mkII 3 monitors and of my TC-750LC audiophile M/M phono preamp and of my current settings alas the passive mackie big nob is what I general use for changing volume but I typicaly keep it around 6
Also disclaimer fluance costumer service and ethics are both horrible. Ortofon blue, totally worth the money. Just had to point that out.

2022.01.22 01:46 WhoisJohnFaust I need help finding a salon for mens long hair and beard in the south bay.
I am new to the long hair and beard, courtesy of covid. I normally have a barber, but but he doesn't do a lot of long hair and I do t 100% know now I want it cut. From what I have read, barbers aren't as good with long hair and I should look for a salon. I need recommendations.
It is starting to get poofy, so I know I want the ends thinned. I have a full beard as well that needs a trim and some shaping. I'm in Sunnyvale.
Who do you recommend? How much should I be looking at paying? Preferably, I would like to get this done this weekend.
I have never had long hair before; my wife and I really dig it but I am starting to look homeless. I was going for Charlie Hunnam, but my hair is longer than his now. It is a couple inches past shoulder in the longest part.
