What things do you keep by your door?

Do you think that you should be a U.S. citizen to buy real estate in the U.S.

Reason for my question is what is taking place in the San Francisco bay area & its severely affecting rentals as well. FYI some countries such as Switzerland only allow its citizens to own real estate.

So here's what's taking place in San Francisco:
* Homes for sale are receiving multiple offers such as a home last week that received 56 offers.
* Bidding wars are taking place where every offer is over asking price.
* A home recently sold for over $1 million over asking price [listed $2.9 million & sold $4.1 million].
* Some town homes are selling for $1 million now & a 2-bedroom, 1-bath 1100SF in Menlo Park just sold for $1.7 million.

The largest percentage of buyers is by far Chinese [approx.60%] with many being Chinese nationals who are not citizens, followed by Indians [California allows 60,000 workers per year from India to work here mostly in the hi-tech industry - ie: Silicon Valley].

Many of the properties are 2nd homes & others are bought to rent out. Rental prices are showing double digit increases yearly and are pushing young people out of the area [my niece & BF just moved to Austin, Tx]. My son & his GF just rented a tiny 1-bedroom for $2200 mo. and they looked for weeks. Houses to rent are non-existent & start at around $3500 mo.

So what is the answer when young people who grew up here cannot afford rents any more let alone have any hope of buying a cheap condo [$400,000+ will get you a so-so 1-bedroom condo].

Thoughts?

What percentage of house work do you do?

Do you and your significant other share house work? Would percentage do you do/they do?
Do you believe it should be 50/50?
Do you think that the person who pays the bills should be excluded from home chores?

Is there such a thing as "Yankee feng shui"?

I need a new exterior door and will need to have it installed.

They do installation work where I plan on purchasing the door, but it is rather pricey.

Any suggestions on saving money to have the door installed. I don't have friends or family that do handy work.

Thank you.
