Real Estate Frustrations!
Wow wow wow! So lets talk about yesterdays show and the chaotic problems that people shared on Dr. Joy Browne show! As we picked up each call we noticed a trend, everyone is trying to save a buck or two! Sarah our first caller who seemed sincerely distressed and upset called to talk about her frustration with New York City real estate. This is such a hot discussion right now because as a recent college graduate which many of you know, most of my friends and peers are in NYC searching and searching for places to live. Right now the NYC market is extremely difficult and rentals are even harder to find! Sarah called explaining that she is upset and feels that she can not trust anyone in the real estate business in NYC and it is starting to hurt her personal life. Sarah told Dr. Joy that she has become extremely anxious and worried about everything going on because of her real estate issues. This is something that many of us are going through, the best advice is to remain calm and be patient AND find a trusting roommate if you have to live with another person.
Our next caller had a discussion about Groupons and how he frequently takes his wife out for dinner with another couple. Groupons are huge discounts that you can get online—usually 50-90% off—with popular businesses and are greatly used in restaurants. The caller stated that his wife always insists on treating the other couple constantly and doesn’t even ask her spouse if this is okay with him. The caller whose name was Charles was frustrated because it is his money and this is not what he chooses to do with it but feels pressured by his wife nonstop. Dr. Joy thinks that while the Groupon is a great idea it is important for couples to be somewhat financially independent from one another always just in case of scenarios like this!
Well thats it for today! Thought I would share my favorite calls from yesterday with yall! Hope everyone has a great week!
