Realtors–irrefutable proof that the United States is not a meritocracy. Between the lies, the drivel and the nonsensical notion that real estate agents are professionals, these guys make lawyers look good.
Correctly or not, landlords figure that a tenant offering a buyout may be ready to move voluntarily anyway–as in already found a new place and wants some quick cash to exit.
I am 65 years old. I’ve lived in my apartment for 22 years. I pay just under $900 for a junior one bedroom on the top floor in the San Francisco Mission district.The landlord offered me a buyout to vacate for $40,000. Should I ask for $60,000?
