Renter's remorse.

I just signed something a few hours ago to rent a room, and already, I'm regretting it. Is there any kind of "buyer's remorse" grace period in the state of California? I haven't given them the first month's rent or security deposit, yet. [more inside]

What kinds of problems are likely in software engineering temp contracts?

I'm a software engineer. I have a job lead that requires me to go through a temp/contracting agency. I have not done that before. Is this a good idea? Are there things I should be watching out for in the contract? Or is it generally clear sailing? Thanks very much for your help.

The Reality of Making it Big

Several years ago I remember reading a very well-regarded article about the financial realities of the life of a band when it gets signed by a music label. I think it was from Rolling Stone, but I couldn't swear by that fact. I recall that it laid out in detail about how the advances work, how exciting it is for the band at first, and then how the entire industry is built to completely financially destroy them. Does this ring a bell with anyone? My nephew is going to become a world-famous millionaire rock star, and I want to give him something to think about while he is working for that big break....

Real estate: can our seller back out of the contract since we were late in satisfying a Notice to Perform?

We're in escrow on a house in southern CA, and were recently the unhappy recipients of a Notice to Buyer to Perform (or more accurately our realtor was, by email.) We got the contingencies lifted but did not quite do so within the 48 hour period dictated by the form, and now the seller wants out. Can they now back out legally? [more inside]

Negotiating with contractor! Tips for bringing costs down?

I have just bought a home and want to remodel both bathrooms and paint interior before I move in. I got two bids and both were about the same. The companies both have good reviews on Angie's list and are the same size, so this makes me feel ok about the price estimated. That said, the price quoted is still a bit more than what I expected so I am wondering what suggestions people have for managing and bringing down costs. [more inside]

Realtor only not really

A real estate agent waited until the night before showing us some properties to send us two contracts to sign. One states that he's not a buyer's agent, he's a "non-agent facilitator". The other would, if we sign, grant him the "exclusive right to locate or procure real property" for us until the end of the year. Question A: is he trying to screw us? Or is this sort of thing normal, or at least reasonable? Question B: assuming this is reasonable, what's the practical difference between a facilitator and a buyer's agent? [more inside]
