  4. I keep the tax savings. My dealer charges me $200 per sled to run them through and the buyer pays $149 licensing fee plus his taxes

  7. Yup not even close. No matter what the environment there will always be people struggling/renters. Today, that number sadly is growing. But the 80's, 90's one could easily save for a down payment on a detached home. In late 80's while both living at home, myself and my brother saved enough for a 25% total down payment on a detached home in Brampton in one year. That was enough for the rent to carry the mortgage. In fact it was so easy, we did for three consecutive years and had 3 fully detached rental homes with 25% down on each. We started this one year after graduation. If I had decided to not go to school and went into the trades, we would have likely had close to 10. There is no formula for that now. To think it's still the same today and let our kids struggle like we did is laughable.

  8. I agree. I've been hearing "our kids won't be able to afford houses" since the 80's. Sure they will. Just like we did. Borrow the down payment from the parents, get in the market and focus on the long term. My wife and I didn't have any money in savings when we bought our first house. Rent was taking all our income. So that's why we bought.

  9. I called a contractor buddy about re-doing my downstairs bathroom. I asked him 18 months ago and he said it would be 6 months min before he could start it. He told me he could start the Tuesday after the Long Weekend if I wanted to go ahead with the job now.

  10. Was never so easy to get a roofer. Called roofer last week said I need some shingles repaired, from wind storm. He came next day repaired that part of roof and told me front half of house needs replacing. Boss came over with quote in about 35 mins after worker phoned it in. I said ok and this week got front part of roof done. Usually takes a million phone calls and messages to get anyone to come out. Guess no one is spending money on roofs now.

  11. I am seeing the same used sleds on my watchlists just sitting and sitting. There is zero motivation today for people to buy anything recreational according to my buddies in the boat, motorcycle and RV business.

  16. I'm a rock star. Didnt get paid when I was young and too old to get paid now. lol Joking aside, I've turned down 30k in work this spring just because it'll hurt too much. I also agreed to do a couple I didnt want to do just because the folks had estimates designed to empty theyre retirement savings and I'll be happy to help them out for 1/4 of previous estimates. People are throwing out crazy estimates to folks that have no where to turn and living on a budget. It's sad.

  17. I think some of the "kids" you speak of are making some pretty good coin with the jobs out there, if they were smart and willing to work......I see my nephews and their friends, some are doing okay. Not to suggest they are not living a fine line, but I think we all did until we were in what our 40's, where we started to see some "financial freedoms".....but the youger kids of today are for sure living a finer line with everything costing so much & getting some help from ma and pa.

  19. It is "news" that has been broadcasted for years, considering the source it comes from, I think the accuracy is low...... I was being scarcastic of course though based on the doom and gloom "news" and Spidy suggesting people had savings. Regardless, poeple will always hurt and people will always weather the storm and endure the valleys of life.

  21. People are tearing through their savings because of cost of living. We're not rich - we're not poor- we have seen a distinct obvious difference in our "play" money over the last year and a half. Only going to get worse

  22. Problem this year is the lousy winter and glut of used sleds on the market. Dealers don't want to give you what you'd think is close to value. I get it they are holding it hoping for a better year and more optimism this fall. I bought a new sled this spring and hoped to sell mine privately because I wasn't happy with what they offered even with the tax saving. I'm now holding to the fall. Prior to this year I have never had an issue selling one in the past.

  24. Always pop in and do a little catch up.👍 Yes I have seen the price of new ones. I was thinking of around $5,500 about half the price of new but not shure if I am in the ball park or not. Been looking on market place and they are all over the place, even clam shells are going for a pretty penny these days.

  27. When I rode Gaspe on sled I used BRP Go app. No cell service in a lot of the area but gps in phone tracks your position and updates as you go…Was awesome..I thought those same trails were atv-sxs trails during the rest of year. I have not seen it but I think Quebec has an atv trail map website same sort of thing as the Quebec snowmobile trail website?

  29. Hahaha. I am always honest have nothing to hide. I buy some equipment used too and usually get same respect. Sometimes you just get a lemon and they all don't get squeezed out during warranty period. Some of fixes are pathetic.

  33. Yes, if you have a good trade and a good dealer who can give you fair dollar because they are able to move it - it usually makes sense for me to trade. I have never lost anything by trading - but have also done okay by selling private. I take it one unit at a time and see where things are at and how my own time is looking, do the math, and make the decision.
