Would agree with Dave. I don't think commercial is an easy game, either. There are a lot of empty storefronts in main commercial areas here in LA.

Cell reception isn't great in OK really... Low population, some places its not financially smart to build towers due to low usage. Its great along the interstates and major state highways, but get way out in NW or SW OK and you are fuched....

But it takes more capital upfront to get into the commercial game....

I was looking for those scenes in the Blues Brothers with Carrie Fisher and the rocket launcher and then the ending with the AK-47 or whatever it is but no HQ versions seem to turn up on youtube.

I thought they would fit in this thread with all the talk of crazy women.

I agree, but retail is not moving here. Commercial properties leasing office space would be better off. There are way too many boutique stores around and not enough customers. I noticed a lot of "party" stores. in strip malls. Always selling balloons, some flowers and other party stuff. Almost all of those storefronts are now vacant. Same goes for a lot of the small clothing stores. Most people are still not buying that stuff and will settle for Macy's or other big shopping centers. Similar clothes at a fraction of the cost.

Property owners that own strip malls are not doing so well. Half the property vacant and like you said, there is still maintenance.

A building that rents to lawyers, doctors, accountants would be a better investment at this time.

I get the principle, but like I said, the high cost of entry can make it tricky. Even saving up, it takes awhile for some of us to smack down a cool half mill for a building. It helps to be working in an industry that makes damned good money....

See I chose the path of a good honest hard days work in the trades, and lost all of my savings and investments because of the poor planning on the part of others. True I could have payed closer attention to my investments but it was all doing good at a slow and steady pace. By the time I realized I need to move and move fast it was too late. The rental sale was the only thing I managed to time well. Having to start over again in my early 40's has been a real slap in the face with a dead tuna.

I realize that. But in the near future, there will be a cap on how much pharmacists make. And then that cap will start trending downward. Just like how it has for me. Every year I make 1-2% less than the year before. That's (effectively) the law.
