A little shakin and they all freak out... Last earthquake I felt in Ohio was around 80-82. Kind of disappointed I didn't feel anything.

well even funnier, to me, the floors that evacuated were all lawyers...

I walked around the floor trying to see if something hit our building...it was pretty wicked, I was alive for that earthquake, but probably too young to realize if I felt it

Ooof. Got the new property value thing from the county in the mail today and the value of my home dropped 17K or 15% percent. I guess that means I get lower taxes, but even though I've been living here for 5+ years my mortgage is now slightly above my new value.

Ouch. That's a big-time drop. Are you in Franklin County? Were you a new build?

Sorry to hear that. Mine dropped a scant 4.5% I can certainly live with that, though like you, it's back to basically what I paid for it.

Stralman made out like a bandit though. 37% increase! (not creeping, have a friend who lives around there)

I'm in an area that held value well, so my valuation went up by about 2%.

That blows majorly. But that's how things are in a buyer's market. We can only hope it rebounds soon, but when?

The wife and I aren't planning on leaving anytime soon, so I guess we'll take the lower taxes for now, hope it goes back up in about 20 years

My fiancee and I are in the process of closing on a house here in Tampa Bay with the idea that not only is it where we want to start our lives (the first and foremost reason by far), but as a side note, when the market rebounds we will have a heck of a lot of money in it.

She is buying it by herself, though, because her mom is a real estate agent and she got every in and out for funding to get the house for just inside $70K total. (If I co-signed, I'd screw up that sweetheart deal.) The house actually is selling for $90Kish, and once the market rebounds to normal (not that inflated stuff from a few years ago, but normal), it'll be a $200K house.

Staged or not, I love watching Storage Wars on A&E. Basically I like seeing the interesting artifacts they show and how much they're worth, not so much the drama behind the bidding wars on each storage unit.

The parking facility I manage also has 1,000 storage units. In 6+ years of working there, with auctions held on average 9 times a year, and with each auction probably averaging 7-8 units, I have seen maybe one unit that would have been worth bidding on - and the bidding on that unit was pushed well further than I would have ever dreamed. So, staged? Absolutely, positively, 100% for sure. That show angers me beyond angry too, now we get every hillbilly in the Inland Empire coming to our auctions thinking they're going to strike it rich - only to buy someone else's ratty clothes and furniture.

I hate that show.

My guilty television pleasure? iCarly ... my daughter likes that show, and I more often than not catch myself watching it with her.

Don't judge me!
