Is It Still a House Flip If You Don’t Sell the Property?

What could be a simpler way of making money than to sell a house soon after buying it for more than what you paid? That’s the house flipping philosophy, and when the market is favorable for flippers — meaning high demand for houses, little supply, and rising prices — house flipping can be lucrative. But house flipping is risky because you can lose money if no one wants to buy your product. So what do you do if that happens?

What is a flip?

A flip is typically a house an investor buys, usually at auction, for a low price. Depending on the market, the flipper might pour money into renovating the house to sell for a profit and then do so. If the market is really strong, the flipper might sit on the house for a few months until they can sell it for a profit, without putting any

As the second wave of COVID-19 tears through Connecticut, coronavirus deaths aren’t concentrated in nursing homes this time; they’re everywhere

HARTFORD, Conn. — Unlike in the spring, when the coronavirus killed thousands of residents in nursing homes, a much broader cross-section of the population in Connecticut is dying from COVID-19, a Courant review of death certificates from October shows.

Coronavirus claimed 35-year-old Pedro Alfaro Vargas, a stone mason from Norwalk, the youngest to die. A 66-year-old former tailor from West Hartford, a 60-year-old former emergency management director in Lisbon and a 43-year-old mother of three from Hartford were among those who died as the state’s death toll from COVID-19 began to climb once more.

The deaths were not confined to the elderly. While 115 deaths were among people 70 and older, there were 15 deaths of people between 60 and 69, eight of people in their 50s and one each in their 40s and 30s, state records show. As of Friday, 4,737 people had died in Connecticut during the

Colorado eyes foreclosure against troubled Pueblo water company | Premium

An Arkansas Valley water and land company has left Colorado on the hook for nearly $1.4 million in delinquent loan payments and emergency dam repair bills, and may face a rare foreclosure proceeding by the Colorado Water Conservation Board.

At issue are two state deals, including a loan from the CWCB that has a remaining balance of $622,000 and an unpaid bill involving the Division of Water Resources and the CWCB’s emergency dam repair fund that has a remaining balance of nearly $750,000, according to the state.

Two Rivers Water & Farming Company, which has a history of chronic late payments, this year failed to make any payments on the $622,000 loan and has missed several payments on the emergency dam repair bill, according to the CWCB.

Greg Harrington, Two Rivers’ chief executive officer, did not respond to requests for comment.

Empty offices must not become ‘rabbit hutch’ homes, say English councils

Councils have warned that offices left empty by the coronavirus pandemic must not be turned into sub-standard “rabbit hutch” homes after a government climbdown indicated a shift in housebuilding targets – away from the southern shires and toward towns and cities.

Thousands more homes are set to be built in urban areas, particularly in the Midlands and north of England after the government said it would adjust a housing targets algorithm that had sparked a rebellion from MPs and council leaders representing Conservative heartlands.

Coronavirus In Nursing Homes: See Numbers In Colorado

After seven weeks of declining weekly coronavirus cases, nursing homes across the United States are seeing a new spike in cases, according to a report released this week by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living.

The report, released Tuesday, ties the increasing number of cases in nursing homes to surging cases in communities.

The report comes as the United States continues to hit consecutive daily records related to the coronavirus. This week, the country saw a record number of people hospitalized due to the virus and has added nearly 1 million new cases in the first 10 days of November.

In Colorado, 2,321 total coronavirus cases have been reported in nursing homes and long-term facilities, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid. Some of the largest outbreaks were seen in the spring when the outbreak first hit our state, and the Colorado Department of

OREB eyes ‘shift’ away from condos as home sales keep booming in October

While Ottawa’s red-hot housing market continued to set a blistering overall pace in October, Realtors are detecting a potential “shift” away from condos as the trend toward remote work fuels demand for larger properties with space for amenities such as home offices and gyms, the city’s real estate board says.

Members of the Ottawa Real Estate Board sold 2,146 properties last month, up from 1,604 a year earlier and well above the five-year average of 1,515.

But OREB noted that although sales of condominiums rose 22 per cent year-over-year to 481, the number of new units added to the market jumped 70 per cent compared with October 2019 to 708 ​– leading experts to suggest a change in housing preferences may be afoot in Ottawa.

“The condominium market is on our watchlist,” said board president Deb Burgoyne.

While Ottawa’s inventory of residential properties on the market has shrunk 46 per

A young widow seeks help with Social Security survivor benefits

Dear Liz: My husband died at 30, making me a widow at 29. I did receive Social Security survivor benefits for our underage children, but what, if anything, am I entitled to as his wife? At the time of his death, we were living separately, although we were still legally married.

Answer: The earliest a widow or widower can get survivor benefits is typically age 60, unless they are disabled, when survivor benefits can begin at 50. Starting benefits before their own full retirement age of 66 to 67 means accepting a reduced payment, but widows and widowers have the option of switching to their own retirement benefit later. (Retirement benefits begin at a reduced amount at age 62 and reach their maximum at age 70.)

Like other Social Security benefits, survivor benefits also are subject to the earnings test if you start them before full retirement age. The earnings
