I think under 50cc, you don't but I could be wrong

I think I read a story a while back where a guy on a scooter or moped got run off the road and then robbed. Plus, my current situation compels me to do some walking and that is important since I have hypertension and high Cholesterol.

Having all these food options in Las Vegas is a double edged sword.

Boy, I am just full of excuses..

Another buying/market question - As a buyer in this market, how much room do we have for negotiating things? Not the actual offer and acceptance, but things like reasonable repair requests that come from the inspection and further down if the home appraises for $5-$10K under the offer. Is the market so hot that as a buyer, if you want the house, you have to suck up a lot? Or has it cooled off a little compared to last summer/fall where maybe the buyer does have some leeway to ask for reasonable things that come up during the buying process?

House #2 is on market now 3wks. Had an offer $4k under list. I turned it down. They also wanted $7k in closing help. Nope. Not in a Vegas market. I didnít counter

We paid 5k under asking price. The owners fixed a few things but they weren't happy about it. Worst they can say is no. For serious repairs they don't want to fix you walk away.

We purchased two investment properties in 2018: (i) an apartment in a high rise on the strip and (ii) a SFH in the west valley. Paid all cash with 14 days or less close. We paid about 93% of list on the condo (March 18) and 97% of list on the SFH (July 18). Both sellers paid for repairs. My take-away is that all-cash offers still provide some bargaining power.
