  • I’m 14. Can I break a 100 dollar bill at a bank even if I don’t have an account?

    So for my birthday, my uncle gave me $100 in a single bill, which is awkward because I like to use smaller bills like $20’s. Can I go to a bank and break the 100 into smaller bills? I don’t have a bank account either so will they let me? Do I need an ID of any kind?

    I am month-to-month tenancy at a trailer community in Concord, North Carolina. On July 12th my husband wrote out a 30-day written notice in front of someone at the Concord office saying that we were leaving the property. The landlord company, which is in Virginia, is saying that our 30-day written notice was not properly given and we are responsible for a full month's rent in August even though we weren't there any in August. They are saying in order to not be responsible for August we would have had to have given notice on exactly July 1st. No one at the office instructed us otherwise. We had already turned the keys in before getting a letter in the mail 10 days later saying we were responsible for $610 minus our $300 security deposit. We had been there a long time and have put up with insufficient repairs and lack of repairs. I have photographic evidence where the office and the maintenance workers had blatantly ignored safety concern problems which pushed us to move out. Please help!

  • I'm in a legal medical marijuana state, soon to be recreational. Should I rent out to this person under these circumstances?

    A gentleman from out of state moved to this state in order to obtain a medical marijuana card for legitimate reasons. He showed me the doctors paperwork, and I honestly feel bad for him. So, I guess if that works for him so be it, I've heard the studies on the news, etc, although I don't use... show more
    A gentleman from out of state moved to this state in order to obtain a medical marijuana card for legitimate reasons. He showed me the doctors paperwork, and I honestly feel bad for him. So, I guess if that works for him so be it, I've heard the studies on the news, etc, although I don't use it. He's coming from a state where he just got charged with possession of marijuana, and a DUI. He told me he was innocent of the DUI, but took it as a plea deal because they wanted to charge him with felony possession for a little over a half ounce. Here in my state, you can have 10 ounces and it's legal. (my brother in law is into it) I called his lawyers office to confirm this, and it checks out..... He seems like a really nice guy and is kind and polite. I was having reservations though once I saw his background check, although his credit is excellent, his fees are paid up, and his income checks out. Should I, or would anyone even consider renting to someone like this? I have other applicants interested, but no offence, even with the clean records, the seem like they may be trouble, and/or deadbeats...

    I always hear of people buying their home for 170k way back when and the same home being worth 300k now. Has this increase in home value reached it's peak? If I buy a home today for 250k will it be worth much more in the future or just a little bit more?

    Best answer: The answer is "Yes" if you meant those amounts to be all in the same currency.
    ----- ----- -----
    When you buy shares of stock, you are then one of the owners of that company. As part owner, the company’s land, buildings, machinery, inventory, debts and earnings belong to you.

    If you have chosen a quality company that steadily earns money each year then it progressively becomes more valuable. You can collect this increase in value when you sell your portions of the company (shares of stock) for more than you paid for them, and also when dividends are paid out. This is not gambling; you are part owner of a money making business.
    (You can also gamble with stocks. Many new investors can't resist doing that.)

    Your company’s board of directors makes the major company decisions and decides what to do with your net earnings.
    ►Some or all of your earnings may be given directly to the shareholders (you) and this is called a dividend. They just mail you a check or send the money to your brokerage account. This makes the value of the company, and thus the price of the stock decrease by the same amount as the dividend, so you have the same value in the total of stock and dividends.
    ►Some or all of the earnings may be re-invested in your company so it can grow, open new stores or make repairs. When this is done, the earnings money is used up but your company is more valuable by that same amount.
    The per share price, having increased because of the earnings, retain that increase when the earnings are re-invested in your company.
    Since your company has reinvested its earnings in itself, it has grown and can earn more money for you next year than last year.

    It takes time for your company to earn money, so you would want to buy shares with money that you can leave invested long term.

    Like anything that you own that has increased in value, you can sell it at a profit. Brokerage houses generally charge a fee for making the trade, usually 5 to 8 dollars per trade of a “lot” of 100 shares. Of course you can buy or sell less than 100 shares if you wish.

    Long story short, I had a fast car in college and racked up a lot of speeding tickets, a reckless driving and a couple accidents. Immature and stupid as hell. I have since not even had so much as a parking ticket in the last three years, but my driving record looks really bad on paper until things fall off in another 3 years. I'm about to finish my master's degree and am wondering if employers care at all about driving records if the job has nothing to do with driving?
