I think I’m going to list our house.

I tried. I really did. Home ownership is just not for me. If you have kids or just enjoy owning a home, great. I don’t and I don’t. I want to spend my money on $AMZN and $AAPL, not roofing and siding. I want an investment that beats inflation by a lot, not a little (or not at all). I want money to travel, and I want to travel without worrying about what’s going to break while I’m gone. I don’t want to have to “update” things — appliances, windows, bathrooms, whatever. I don’t want to mow yards or pull weeds or plant flowers. I don’t want hidden boogeymen lurking everywhere, waiting to gobble up my retirement savings. I don’t want to spend any more money at Home Depot (has anyone ever gotten out of that store for less than $100?) I don’t want to forget a week later what it was that I spent $100 on at Home Depot. And I definitely — definitely — don’t want to deal with any more contractors.

My boss made a comment a few weeks ago: “Now you see why home ownership drives the economy.” Apparently.

Can you imagine if Hillary had been elected, made this many serious mistakes, accomplished nothing, and then cried about how unfairly she was being treated? The only bright spot of this disaster is that the market is finally starting to provide some buying opportunities because of it. #silverlining
