  1. Bavaria and the real estate bubble

    Yep all my property investments have tripled over last 10 years or quadrupled last 20 years.  Break even on my other investments is a victory
  2. What made you laugh today?

    Not only is Ireland's prime minister (Taoisach) a non white gay, but a witty Ireland journalist got to write this.   Mike Pence is well known for refusing to be alone with a woman not his wife. Stands to reason our outrageously gay and obviously over sexed Taoiseach would likewise be a problem that demands a chaperone.
  3. Leaving the country with an active mortgage

    Once it was below 2% I didn't really care. Tilgung is now 7+%   I may have complicated matters by not being German resident. Which is what the OP is asking about.
  4. Leaving the country with an active mortgage

    I had both mortgages with interest fixed at a little over 5% for 15 years. 1% Tilgung. Seemed like a great idea 12 years ago.   After 10 years I was entitled to pay off the mortgages. I rang both companies and said one sentence:   Did not talk for next 5 minutes as both made me offers I couldn't refuse. Sub 2% interest fixed for 10 years, and I bumped up repayments to pay off all mortgages within 10 years.   Increased my outflow by about 30% but most of the money is now repayment instead of interest.
  5. Leaving the country with an active mortgage

    I have not lived in Germany for 5 years, and have 2 mortgages on 4 apartments in Germany. As long as I make my repayments the banks don't care where I am.   In fact one of the mortgages has been sold twice
  6. Help me choose a company name (UWB radio tech product)

    I am in contact with:     While I appreciate pappnase's advice I was also hoping for feedback on VLTM as a company name.   Right now it seems clever and more exciting than Uwbtest. Clever and exciting is often a bad idea. Anyway I have the domain
  7. Help me choose a company name (UWB radio tech product)

    Good point but it's an off the shelf Tardis bought for €30 from a German company and licensed by the BBC.   Surely I can buy a properly licensed product and do what I want with it including cutting bits off it, and sticking more bits in?   Anyway I am in contact with the BBC and will send them the picture above. 
  8. Help me choose a company name (UWB radio tech product)

    I've integrated my Tardis. The only thing just there for show is the vertical white box at the back.   Everything else actually has a purpose. The Tardis has a USB hub, and a pyboard with display and a dial. The pyboard allows you to connect  DUTs (Device Under Test) over many kinds of interface: UART, SPI, I2C maybe even GPIB.   The dial let's you choose the time shift.   In the picture there are three DUTs all connected to the flat metal box which is a kind of crossbar.     I'm thinking of calling the company VLTM (Very Limited Time Machines)     So VLTM is a kind of a pun on that kind of name. Very limited is the opposite of very large. VLSI means Very Large Scale Integration.   So am I onto something, or has 24 hour daylight finally fried my brain?
  9. startup - apartment search tool - where to find beta testers?

    This is not a bad place: Toytown. There are always people searching for an apartment.   But explain what are the features that make your tool a game changer? Because ot must be substantially better than existing options like immoscout.   And post a link asking people here to try it.   Or are the features you top secret you must have a 1 to 1 relationship with the testers?
  10. Are flashing bicycle lights allowed in Germany?

    I'm going to have to get lights for my bicycle in September. This 24 hour brightness has its uses
  11. Rules for increasing the rent

    Yes to some of those questions. None of your business to most of them.   Although I might as well tell you she's a social recipient and the rent is paid by the city. So your taxes will go to further inflating my evil capitalist wallet.
  12. Rules for increasing the rent

    She can, but I can not accept it. I'd be quite happy for her to move out. I make double the profit on my furnished apartments.
  13. Rules for increasing the rent

    I've just looked at my letter from 6 years ago:     20% it is then
  14. Rules for increasing the rent

    I haven't raised my tenant in Nürnberg's rent since 6 years.   I had the idea the maximum increase is 15% over the course of 3 years. But I've seen the number 20% floating around n this thread.   What is the maximum rental increase after 6 years, unfurnished in Nürnberg?

    Oh I don't have faith in people in general. Especially flat Earthers and climate change deniers   but I do have faith in purchasers and engineers
