    I sold the home he and my mother had lived in for 58 years at 8.2% over asking- which was already a high amount (I am confident saying that because I am a Zillow junkie!).
    In exchange for me taking care of the sale of the home and actually closing on the sale (he doesn’t count any chickens until they hatch), he treated me to a new dress and he took me out to lunch!
    So fun 🙂

  2. For some reason this post got me thinking about the asymptotic curve that might well describe the cost to our economy of the fight against inflation. As the song said, “… some gotta win, some gotta lose …” It cost $X (an amount I don’t know) to get the first 1% reduction in inflation, probably more for the next reduction. I wonder how expensive the reductions from 3% to 2.5%, and finally from 2.5% to 2.0% will be, assuming we could even get there. I’ll wager that every 50 bp drop in the rate will cost more than the last. So who’s gotta win and who’s gotta lose and how much?
