@tell me

If you are going to say these things tell us why you think it is a hack job.

I’ve not seen this place but listing Realtor thinks otherwise. However, I noticed there are no pictures of the interior ground level and windows are dated otherwise is that what’s missing to complete your picture of a hack job?

What’s the mood like out there now?

I’m hearing more bearish comments (from normally bullish commentators) – any change in the winds from your vantage point?
