    Our cleaning fees have roughly doubled in the last 2 years. We still can't find and keep housekeepers. Since this is a pass-through item, the guest has to pay.

      I haven’t. The last time we rented was August 2019. That was our last vacation pre-COVID.

      I am planning to rent in October. I guess I’ll find out then.

          Real estate is a great domain to invest in! I was thinking about buying an apartment in order to rent it out. I have talked with different architects and designers in order to find out more about what do I have to do in order to make sure that my apartment is going to be rented out. I would love to be able to own a house with one and multiple apartments in order to make sure that I can save up money. It's pretty hard to start from 0, but I know that this is possible. I just have to put in work and I am sure that this dream is going to come true.

            Yeah, tell that to folks who bought their houses in 2006.

              That was us. We bought in 2005 and we probably couldn't sell for a good 7-8 years before we made enough to breakeven.

                I could sell my house right now and put $130K in my pocket.
                But then I'd have the issue of being homeless.

                  agreed. Although inflationary policies are driving RE up, as well as everything else, so we are reaching some "new normal" levels in terms of pricing. There's a lot of free cash out there. Certainly there is some froth building that will eventually blow off.

                    I think this inflation is what's really driving prices up. That the cost of building materials and labor is making housing more expensive. So people in older homes are forced to stay put which makes supply much less. This in turn makes it harder for entry level people to get in. I think i hear that supply number is like 6M homes short of what they need in the US because building in 2000-2006 went from 1M/year to something like 2008-2019 500k/homes a year so the decreased building supply has forced and imbalance which makes prices skyrocket.

                      I actually was thinking that prices going up was what was driving inflation.
