The "Homeless" part of the blog title beckons.

It turns out the house I rent is going on the market and I'll likely have to move again. The kicker on moving again in Hayward is there are virtually no rentals. I lucked into this one. Most rental units have waiting lists.

I spent part of today approaching banks for a loan, potentially buying the place. On the positive side, I'm building equity -- and my monthly payment would decrease by hundreds of dollars. By the time I retire in 15 years, I would have savings. (I had to look up that word to see what it means.)

But I must deal with reality. That is I have a less-than-positive credit score. And "less-than-positive" means "crappy." And crappy is a synonym for another word. For instance, this year, I didn't get a W-2. I received a W-0.5.

I talked to three banks today and had a mixed experience. There's always a litany of questions, and inevitably we came to me being out of work came up and the whole "without a permanent address." What's that mean" they asked. "Well, technically it's being kind of homeless." You were homeless? "I always had a place to stay that was dry and safe and clean." At three banks: pause, pause, pause.

It comes down to credit score ultimately and when I last looked, mine was below 600 and banks, all of them, need at least 620. It's hard to tell what mine is because I needed deep-sea expert Robert Ballard -- the guy who found the Titanic -- to find it.

It seems unlikely I can buy, even though I can make the payments and save money at the same time.

The system is not set up for those on the cusp, even for someone who has worked since age 16 and still works 65 hours a week at age 56.

I'm working in two directions -- seeking a loan and looking for a rental -- equally. In the short term, I always have the Steakhouse Lodge, where I stayed for a month before getting into my current home.

Keep in mind this is not a Debbie Downer post. It is a journalist honestly reporting his own story. And as I write this, I'm having a Manhattan at the Steakhouse, my Hayward family, waiting for my Wisconsin fish fry. I have my troubles but I also have my blessings.

Peace and hearth unto you my brothers and sisters.


  1. How much is the house? Maybe several people could set up a trust,buy the house and rent it back to you. I believe there are several options like this you could pursue.


    In Dec, 2021, I invested the sum of 19.78 BTC with a fake blockchain impostor I met online, all the money I had saved up since 2014 got stolen just within a Month, my whole life almost crumbled, to crown it all my FICO score was so bad that I couldn't even afford securing a loan to help my kids, but everything became better after I joined a forum online where I met people testifying about HACK VANISH, a hacker who has been helping thousands of people all over the world. I decided to reach out to him via the following contact shared on the platform Text/Call/WhatsApp: + 1 (747) 293-8514, Email: hackvanish@ gmail. Com, they responded and requested for all necessary information needed to aid my JOB, to my greatest surprise my bitcoin was recovered and my credit report fixed, FICO score was boosted to 783 across all 3-credit bureau's, all negative items cleared just within 8 days. I can't stop expressing my profound gratitude to this great team of hackers, I strongly recommend them to anyone in need.

  3. I just have to introduce this hacker that I have been working with him on getting my credit score been boosted across the Equifax, TransUnion and Experian report. He made a lot of good changes on my credit report by erasing all the past eviction, bad collections and DUI off my credit report history and also increased my FICO score above 876 across my three credit bureaus report you can contact him for all kind of hacks . Email him here their website for more details and Whatsapp No: +14106350697 if you want to chat them up,i assure you you would regret this is 100% legit

  4. I was frantic to get my credit reports fixed. In the past, I had experience with MSI credit and Lexington law. They took some items away, but I still had some negative and collection accounts. When I saw the tag GASPER TIME RESEARCH in a few of the Facebook reviews, I decided to get in touch with the company. They replied and told me to text them on their direct number, which I did as soon as possible. When we started conversing, they gave me a clear explanation of the credit repair procedure, and I decided to deal with them. After a few days, I received a call asking me to check my profile online to verify that the process was finished and ready for use. Wow! I checked and saw that my score had increased to 788 while all of the negative and collection accounts had been eliminated. That was precisely what I desired, and it was undoubtedly the nicest thing to occur in my life since falling into depression due to my poor credit. I contacted them once more to fix my wife's credit profile and my Chex system, and they came through once more. gasper research comes highly recommended for any type of credit repair work. They possess mastery in what they do.

  5. Compliment of the season. All thanks to the entire team of Hack West. I never believed that my credit score could be up again after several disappointments by those who claim to be credit specialists. I constantly followed up reviews about Hack West but didn’t believe it because of the fear from my previous experiences.

I had to put in my all and Glory be to God they delivered on the promise, I now have an average FICO score of 782 and great tradelines such as mortgage, auto, installment, revolving and open accounts.
