She bought a condo w/ a laminate floor; is this deception?

A friend of a friend bought an expensive condominium in Mid Manhattan. It appeared to me the floors are laminate; I have to return and look closer. Aside from the major cheapness factor, they are advertised as having wood floors. Is this a deception? How does she get clarification? Would her purchase documents have this detailed?

How do I budget for a home purchase if I have a good amount of savings?

I'm looking to buy a home. I'm not wealthy enough to just buy something nice enough straight out, and I've got a decent idea of how much I could/should pay for a monthly mortgage payment, but over the years I've accrued more savings (in fairly low-interest places) than I'd likely put for a down payment. So how do I decide how much of my savings to put into what size of down payment (and, since I know how big of a mortgage I could pay, how do I decide how much I should spend on a house?).

My parents' realtor wants to sell their house to her son. Conflict? How big of a problem?

Realty-Ethics Filter - My parents are selling their house in California. Their realtor presented an offer, from her son and daughter-in-law. I understand it is legal in California for a realtor to represent buyer and seller both, but this seems like a particularly acute conflict of interest. Advice appreciated. [more inside]

Where to go for a Humble Retirement

In twenty-five years i'll be retiring with my minimal social security benefits and medicare to keep me briefly going. I've got no savings right now, but I'm almost done paying my debts. I rent. I want somewhere tiny, a bungalow with a kitchen, perhaps a tiny garden, stonking bandwidth, maybe near a lake, maybe near a wood, but really not so much. I just want to whittle sticks, greet neighbours, not climb stairs, and hack on code. I don't mind renting again until i die. Where should I move in the US, and when? [more inside]
