    We were planning a trip to check out Atlanta but with the riots decided to postpone it. Even here in our normally quiet city we've had violence during the protests. We're far enough out that it didn't impact us much but our friends who live close to downtown had protesters one block away smashing cars. I think we had about 300-400 protesters on Friday night and this is the most violence we've ever had during a protest. Best to sit things out until everything calms down and Atlanta can repair some of the damage they've had over there. I don't want this to color our experience of the city. It's a horrible situation all around. I don't think violence is the answer, but I understand people's frustration at the lack of change. I can't imagine having a black child, especially a son. How do you explain this world to them? How do you keep them safe?

    Anywho. I will reread all the great comments on here and chat some more later.

    And yes, Yossarian, I would love to pm you. I'll gather my thoughts and send you a message. Thanks!

    Dh says I have to stop looking at houses.... So guess what? You guys get to hear about it!

    Less than 2 miles from CDC:
    1.) https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/1...4549796_zpid/?
    2.) https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/1...14551987_zpid/

    5 miles from CDC:
    3.) with a separate unit that can be rented out: https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/1...4520373_zpid/?
    4.) https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/1...9932029_zpid/?

    For comparison, this house is close to dh's work now. And it's on SALE! $400.2k price cut!
    5.) https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/1...9468600_zpid/?


    Athens looks like a great place to retire - a bit to far from CDC at 60 miles, but looks like a lovely city if you don't have to commute:

    I like the second one: roomy, unpretentious and close to work!

    The second one is probably what we would go for. But #3 is the one I'm partial to. I like the aesthetics and the rental cottage. It would be nice to be able to travel and not worry about leaving the house empty. Also, we could probably convince the tenants to pet sit for us when we're on holiday! That's been a big issue here.

    That's a handsome one. The MIL cottage could be a boon or a burden.

    I’ve noticed in the Seattle market they are doing digital staging.

    I was looking at a particular West Seattle neighborhood. It was very popular at least before the closing of the bridge, and so much of the furniture in those listings are digital images.

    I looked there when I moved to the Seattle area. I liked the semi-isolated beachy vibe of it, but was wary of that bridge--rightly so, as it turned out.
