[ - ] If I wanted to ready my house to sell in 18months or so, would a realtor be able to come in and tell me what I needed to do to improve curb appeal and sale price? I dont' want to lock in a realtor just yet. I just want to know what something similar would sell for, and what I need to do. Do realtor do this on a fee basis? Or do I need to contract with one before they tell me what improvements are critical? 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

The stuff you need to do to your home before putting up for sale is kind of common sense, and it's readily available on the internet in the form of interviews with dozens of decorators and realtors. You can look up similars using realtor.com or zillow. It is really not that hard. [ Reply | More ]

NP so what is this poster supposed to do? former employer does not want to be sued, they will confirm dates of employment and might generally answer the question is an employee eligible to be hired back (which is code for fired). in most cases it is in the best interest of a former employer to have the fired employee go away quitely, I have only once sandbagged a formed employee and that it because that employee embezzelled and we prosecuted him - the DA allowed him to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge, the next company hired him anyway and he embezzeled from them as well.

First of all Kanye cares deeply about Chicago. What happens here is unemployed young black men apply for jobs and are always rejected by white business owners who hire illegals instead. if you talk to anyone here, we want the white business owners fined so that they are forced to fire all the illegals and give jobs to unemployd blacks. Educate yourself. Dems are on the side of illegals http://www.gopusa.com/at-chicago-bakery-labor-issues-pit-blacks-against-illegal-aliens/ [ Reply | More ]

The Chicago Tribune has great coverage. Rahm invites illgals to Chicago and white business owners hire illegals instead of members of the black community. It is Trump punishing the white business owners and forcing white business owners to hire locals not illegals. This is why Kanye and everyone who loves Chicago will be out campaigning agianst dems http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/ct-biz-cloverhill-aryzta-immigration-raid-20171128-story.html [ Reply | More ]

If you are actually MO you know the choices. There is one MO school in NYC that I know has a child with gay parents I assume you know which it is. But why not send to Heschel or Solomon Schecter? I can't understand why you would want to put kid in an MO environment and why should an orthodox rabbi agree to the conversion? [ Reply | More ]
