Sorry about the formatting. I think there is a list indexing that happened and it made the indents. Bold is where I attempted to identify the AO ID then his/her ideas.

huh, I didn’t realize I am dying this year. :grimacing:

I’m pretty sure that was your prediction, in some thread about coronavirus.

Just your AO persona… Spot on prediction!

I should have been a bit more vague on the lung disease. I’d have been 2/3. That home value thing obviously didn’t happen in most markets. But they could be happening in certain areas due to Covid19 (Like NY).

Oh… Yeah, sorry, I may have misread the whole thread.
