I got tickets to tickets to see the Ports play the Quakes Saturday, noticed Russel hasn’t been in the last 2 games. Is he injured or just getting a couple days off?

Mild, aggravated injury. He’s day to day.

Yeah, he recently re-aggravated a hand injury. So hopefully he’ll be okay by the weekend.

1) It may take a while for the bank to respond to your offer.2) The prrepoty is sold as is, so you had better spend the money for a thorough inspection before you close (and make your contract contingent upon a favorable inspection).3) When the inspection reveals problems, the bank is not going to want to pay for them.4) Many of these properties have condition issues.5) Some of these properties may have people living in them against whom you will have to start eviction proceedings (be especially aware of this if you are buying at auction).6) If you are buying at auction, you must always check for tax liens before you bid. I know a guy who got a $60k surprise as a reward for not checking. This list is by no means exhaustive, but it should get you thinking.
