I can see how your emotions got in the way. You said no more than 215k and you wrote it for $250 because you got hyped up. I’m not getting hyped up at all. I’m sticking by the numbers. If they work, great. If they don’t, great. No big deal.
Anne_MD, I believe, is the only one who gave me an opinion on the numbers. That’s what I was looking for. I’ve taken everybody’s advice regarding letting the sellers stay into consideration. Trust me I have. And, I’m probably going to heed that advice. It was good advice and I’m taking it.
I can’t stand threads that get out of control like this because somebody misinterpreted something. Fine. No big deal. But, it doesn’t need to be prepetuated especially with no evidence. Are you saying I can’t try and defend/argue/talk through/standup for (or any other phrase you want to throw in there) just because a few top guns said black and I want to say white. I’m not saying they’re wrong and I’m right. I’m just trying to talk through all issues brought to the table to determine legitamacy and importance of those issues. If it’s not what I want to hear then that’s great. I want somebody to poke holes in it. That’s what’s great about this forum. I’m not getting defensive. I’m just bringing up my thoughts and opinions of a certain aspect of the deal.
Sorry, I’ll get off my soapbox. I appreciate your feedback but I’ll have to disagree. Basically, what you’ve said is that if somebody disagrees with an experienced investor then they’re emotionally involved in the deal. I think that’s generalizing way too much.
Thanks for the response.
