Trust me, if you don’t want to mow a lawn, don’t buy a house. No, the kid down the street doesn’t mow neighbors’ grass any more. That’s the job of the guys with the big pickup and trailer. They will come regularly and often to trim your lawn. They will charge you like they believe money grows on trees at your home. Oh, by the way, if you don’t want to rake leaves, don’t buy a house.

    I appreciate the depth of thought that has gone into #2′s comments. I can tell that it has been formulated based on extensive experience. At my age (64) there is a lot to be said about a thoughtful #2.

      I think if you follow Ms. 2′s advice, you will be flush with success.
