Most of the interest in rural is for properties that have some sort of residence. I was very surprised at the number of showings the property got, especially to people seeking to use VA or FHA mortgages. As a seller those aren’t your best buyers, because the appraisal requirements are more stringent, but there were a lot of those types of lookers. Anyway, I used MLSBrokerDirect.com and saved the listing commission! Just paid $100 bucks to list it. So it was even a bargain to sell!
It’s happening here in Tennessee too.
Just sold a rural property for cash to a couple getting out of the city.
Wish I had more country property to sell!
Nashville just raised property taxes 32% to offset reduced business tax revenues.
With policies like that, city real estate is going to collapse!
You aren’t asking the right questions.
Climate and taxes will have a significant affect on your resiliency.
If you choose to stay in the USA, then look for states and locales with low taxes, and a climate that allows you to grow and sustain food crops year round.
Now or later? Well, there will be a lot of folks looking to get out of densely populated areas as the endemic nature of COVID is finally sinks into the collective conscious.
I’m from New Jersey, but I’m now in Tennessee and own multiple large rural properties with incredibly low taxes (less than $1000 per year!) and very friendly neighbors (including Mennonites and Amish) who have been very helpful.
I started acquiring these properties 5 years ago and they have all increased in value 100% t0 200%.
There are a LOT of people who will be moving out of cities soon.
First, thank you to Chris and Adam for their tireless and self-sacrificing efforts to educate us and to provide a forum for transparency, truth, and civil dialog. They are the purest American Patriots. I hope that history recognizes that they used this new digital medium to attempt to preserve and protect our Republic.
I am deeply troubled by the lack of indignation among Americans! And not just about COVID. The average American has been subjected to a literal barrage of lies, misrepresentations, political manipulations, incompetence, negligence, and thievery from the leadership of this country and from the many organizations our tax dollars support.
Set aside for a moment that COVID is likely an engineered plague resulting from inadequate oversight and greed by myopic scientists, and then magnified by the CCP and the WHO. Now it may be that the highest law enforcement agency in our land may have been complicit in a coup attempt. And NOW the greed-induced bail-out of the top 1% while the vast majority of Americans are sent back to work in a high-risk circumstance without support for even the most rudimentary prophylactic protocol (HCQ, masks, gloves, information, etc.) Folks, we are not the “deplorables” – we are literally being treated as the “expendables.” The results are going to be catastrophic. And the leaders of this nation DO NOT CARE.
On multiple fronts: Our Health, National Security, Financial stability, Money Supply, Employment, Food Security, Privacy, and Constitutional Rights, the American people are being systematically disemboweled. Does anyone else see this? Does anyone care? What are we doing? Or have the trains to the camps already been loaded?
Where is our outrage? Do we not see what is happening? COVID is just another nail in our coffin – albeit a very large lag-bolt to lock us down, scare us, and extend the control over us. Is it really so hard to supply everyone with masks, gloves, food, and accurate information? This circumstance is vastly worse than some tax on tea. And yet I do not hear a voice, or even a whisper of resistance. Is our sugar induced coma so deep that we are effectively consumerist zombies with no ability to self-organize and protest?
Are there any among you who agree with me? Are there any ideas or actions that can save us? How do we resist this tyranny? Or do we all just continue scurry about, prepping and hoping individually, that everything will turn out fine. Are we all dead already?
Think carefully about what has happened…
A bunch of scientists created a new life form that kills humans. You don’t need to understand the specifics of how it kills, or how many it kills. Simply that these very smart scientists created a brand new organism and it kills people. Especially people that may not be so healthy to begin with. Which is a large number of us.
And so far, no one seems to understand exactly what the organism actually does or how it does it. But it definitely can kill you, or possibly make you sick for the rest of your life.
This brand new life form is invisible. It’s an invisible predator. It is a very stealthy animal. It hides very effectively. And it can go almost anywhere it wants – like a central air conditioning system, or on an airplane, or on a train, or a ship… or an UBER car.
You may not even know you have this life form inside you. But the minute you talk or sneeze, or cough, or yawn, or maybe even fart – it escapes into the air around you! And it floats through the air. And while it’s invisibly floating around, it can easily infect your friends, your neighbors, your children, your spouse, your teammates, your co-workers or strangers that you may pass or sit next to. AND IT CAN KILL THEM.
Now consider that the ODDS of it KILLING them are much higher than the odds of any of them winning the Lottery. And lots of people believe they can win the Lottery, all they have to do is play once or twice a week. But this LOTTERY will kill them or make them sick for the rest of their lives. And all they have to do is act the very same way they’ve been acting their whole life… up until now.
So the question you need to be asking is NOT “how fast do you think the US economy (the world economy) will recover?”
The real questions are:
Do you wanna sit in a movie theater?
Do you wanna go to a concert?
Do you wanna eat out?
Do you wanna go to church?
Do you wanna get a haircut?
Do you wanna go to school?
Do you wanna go to work?
Do you want to get on airplane?
Do you want to share any type of transportation?
DO YOU WANNA PLAY THE NEW SC2 LOTTERY?
Welcome to the game!
And remember… WE CREATED THIS NEW ORGANISM!
If she’s right, and there is strong evidence she is, things are going to get much worse economically and socially. This is basically a type of airborne HIV – and it has persistence like Herpes. Everything is going to change dramatically and we are not going back to the normal we knew. Also, China and the WHI are the key culprits here, because they had to know, and they actively allowed it to become a pandemic. The “wag the dog” bullshit from our leadership is just trying to hide the truth. It’s gonna take more than planting a garden to survive this!
Time for a new religion.
We are in the moment of death, worldwide.
All of our leadership: political, spiritual, academic, economic and commercial is corrupt and must be excised.
We must become “the resurrection and the light”
This pandemic will engender new meaning to “In God we Trust”
The implications of this hypothesis could prove even more disruptive politically and economically than the current situation. I have seen videos from others who have reviewed those same documents and they make very similar assertions. The players cited in the papers were definitely messing with “enhancement of function”. It’s unclear whether the research was to support a bio-weapons effort or to develop improved vaccinations. Also, the Wuhan BSL-4 has documented problems with it’s safety record.
I have also seen attempts to seriously discredit the hypothesis, by using very hard to evaluate genomic analysis, well beyond the capabilities of the average person to understand clearly. The “wag the dog” machine is in full operation at this point.
However, there is one irrefutable fact:
China IMMEDIATELY shut down their country and a significant portion of their economy in response to this viral “outbreak”. For a totalitarian regime to take that kind of hit voluntarily seems extremely unlikely. If this came from bat droppings in a wet market, it seems that the CCP would have taken a much more measured approach. Instead they crushed their economy. That tells me they know much more about this than they have shared.
That one fact alone makes it likely that this bug is not a natural occurrence.
To add to your question, it seems to me that 15 days to flatten the curve is a very short period of time, particularly with limited adherence to the guidelines. I’d be interested to hear others opinions on the relationship between guidelines and the realistic time needed to actually affect the R0 of this bug.
