Protocol with realtors when looking in different locations?

2023.05.28 04:44 Sancocho99 Protocol with realtors when looking in different locations?

This may be a silly question, so no answer is too simplistic! (There are a lot of basic things I don't know.) We are just starting the hunt and have had to make the usual adjustments based on the realities of the market. We were looking in one area we loved (Putnam County) and started working with a realtor. However, we realized we need to be closer to NYC as it looks like our employers will now require more days in the office. So we also started looking in another area (Westchester), with a different realtor. I'm now thinking Connecticut is probably a better choice as it has lower taxes and school district is not a concern for us. This is an entirely different market, so we would need a different realtor there.
I'm wondering if I need to formally "break up" with the other two realtors if we start looking in Connecticut? They are all different markets, but we haven't entirely made up our minds, so it might still be worth looking in all three places while we figure out what we want and are able to afford, etc.
What is the expectation? We haven't signed any agreements, and haven't really put the two we've spoken with to work - have only seen 1-2 places so far as inventory is low. Thanks for any insight!

2023.05.28 04:28 PerformanceKey5290 Scraping help needed

Hello all - I am relatively new to Python and working on a project to scrape data from a webpage to get foreclosure listings and filter on a specific county and perform additional steps. I am having a hard time to scrape the table on this page. Can you one help me pleaseee!!!
Here is my code which is not satisfying the ‘if’ clause and resulting the ‘else’
import requests
from bs4 import BeautifulSoup
from datetime import date

URL of the foreclosure listings page

url = ''

Fetch the HTML content of the page

response = requests.get(url)
html_content = response.text

Create BeautifulSoup object to parse the HTML

soup = BeautifulSoup(html_content, 'html.parser')

Find the div containing the foreclosure listings

foreclosure_div = soup.find('div', id='footable_213701')

Check if the foreclosure div is found

if foreclosure_div is not None: # Get today's date today =
# Find all the rows in the foreclosure div rows = foreclosure_div.find_all('tr') # Iterate over each row (excluding the header row) for row in rows[1:]: # Extract the columns of the row columns = row.find_all('td') # Extract the relevant data (county and sale date) county = columns[2].text.strip() Address = columns[3].text.strip() sale_date = columns[4].text.strip() tax_Value= columns[5].text.strip() opening_Bid= columns[6].text.strip() current_Bid= columns[7].text.strip() close_Date= columns[8].text.strip() # Convert the sale date to a date object sale_date = date.fromisoformat(sale_date) close_Date = date.fromisoformat(close_Date) # Check if the county is 'Mecklenburg' and the sale date is greater than today if county.lower() == 'mecklenburg': # Do whatever you want with the matching foreclosure listing address = columns[0].text.strip() print(f"Address: {Address}") print(f"County: {county}") print(f"Sale Date: {sale_date}") print(f"Tax Value: {tax_Value}") print(f"Opening Bid: {opening_Bid}") print(f"Current Bid: {current_Bid}") print(f"Close Date: {close_Date}") print('-' * 40)

2023.05.28 02:17 Specific_Boot_8572 Milwaukee Brewers Baseball Club Inc.

To: Milwaukee Brewers Baseball Club Inc. This is a letter to describe my admiration, memories, and theories of your organization that I have been a fan of for about as long as I can recall. There’s been hard times but overall, I've enjoyed having an MLB team in my backyard. Even when the incompetent management of your organization yielded regular dismal seasons during the late 90s and into the mid-2000s I attended frequently and enjoyed the games. County Stadium had that old baseball charm and admittedly it was aged but beloved by the fans. Regardless of that, the team boldly went ahead and insisted they needed a new stadium for several reasons, but part of it was to make the Milwaukee Brewers a competitive team again. The thought of a winning team sold many people on the idea.
The new facility opened during that dark period, and the Brewers opted for the addition of several state-of-the-art features for that time including a highly touted roof that allowed games to be played during inclement weather. It could also be retracted within minutes for an outdoor baseball experience too. I remember several interesting moments involving the numerous leaks during rain showers and thunderstorms provided by the roof’s sieve-inspired construction which generally required some fans to move to other areas to avoid being deluged. In 2002 I lived on Milwaukee’s East Side, and I can still distinctly remember the synergy of excitement provided to the city from MLB and the Brewers organization from the flatulent ending of the MLB All-Star game in Milwaukee and the 100+ losses the Brewers accrued that season, it was all magic back then.
With respect to the positive features of the new stadium frequently advertised, some residents of Milwaukee, Waukesha, Ozaukee, Washington, and Racine counties who were then a few years into living with a tax bestowed on them for 23 years to provide the funding for the stadium and the needed infrastructure couldn’t help but be caught up in the moment. We are all grateful to the Brewers for providing discounted tickets to 4 of the 81 home games held per season to residents of these counties as a demonstration of the gratitude for their involuntary funding their new corporate headquarters. I operate a sole-member LLC and admittedly am a layman with respect to operating a large organization like the Brewers. I’m sure there are good reasons that it has been decided that the 5-county discount promotions do not apply toward tickets in certain sections of the stadium, parking charges, food or beverages, or any other items such as clothing, hats, etc.
I think it is general common knowledge that utilizing an immense facility will inevitably present a need for occasional maintenance, renovation, and facility upgrade projects. We all understand these upgrades are necessary for the Brewers due to the nature of the business they are part of. These projects will allow the team to remain competitive on a mediocre level and increase annual net profits by sticking with a consistent business plan revolving around demanding that the facility upgrades are to be publicly subsidized. Like your strategy in the late 1990s, the Brewers have hinted that without the Milwaukee area providing all funding, there is a possibility they will then have to offer residents in a different United States metropolitan region discounts for 4.9% of the home games held there per season as a thank you for their funding of your new facility. This will then give the Brewers another opportunity to be provided with a new multi-million-dollar corporate headquarters virtually for free, and then insufficiently maintain that facility as well.
Many businesses set funds aside incrementally to cover the costs associated with facility needs and if the situation arises where they do not have the sufficient budget to pay for these projects, they will get a business loan and pay it back to the lender via the terms of the contract. It is now evident the Brewer’s plan was to send the residents of Wisconsin another invoice with hinted threats to leave Milwaukee if they don’t pay. To your credit, that tactic worked in the past with universal enthusiasm. It had been so long that many people had moved on and forgotten about that time, so I admire the clever way the team went about stirring up all that enthusiasm once again. Not having to apply or account for expenses associated with the initial construction and renovations associated with your business site to maximize net profits is innovative. As a business owner, I had never thought to gouge and bully my clients to increase my project margins so I appreciate the different perspective.
I sense that if negotiations regarding the funding come to an impasse, the Brewers will be left with no other options but to positively market the potential creation of low-paying part-time jobs without benefits as a spin to convince another city to build them a stadium that meets their specifications. Luckily, the Brewers and the MLB have great resources to mask how lopsided a stadium deal in a new community will be and the consequences associated with full public subsidizing of private entities. It will get everyone on board to provide the Brewers with a new site equipped with 300-foot double-sided 4K scoreboards, a 400-speaker audio system, and the requisite number of bistro restaurants, distilleries, brew pubs, swimming pools, upscale shopping options, champagne and wine bars, spa centers, farmers markets, and rock-climbing walls.
I do genuinely hope the club is not forced to move due to the overwhelming greed of local governments prioritizing the use of their limited budgets towards necessary municipal services instead of covering the Brewers and their lack of willingness to save and pay for conspicuous facility renovations. Should they leave though, I'm sure the current stadium will still hold a concert or monster truck rally here and there for about a five-year period until being abandoned, stripped of any copper materials, fully vandalized, and left to rot.
In summary, the Brewers have held a special place in my life for a long time. I realize that the current lease will be in place for several more years but it makes sad to know that I will likely still end up having to experience a momentary period of sorrow when a door hits your ass on their way out of town. But I also know everything will all be OK because the moving expenses will not be paid by the team, and that thought makes me feel much better.
On behalf of the State of Wisconsin,
We’re tired of your bullying tactics and your shitty overpriced product. Pack up - but before you leave, grab a bratwurst or hot dog or Polish or whatever….and shove it far up your ass. Enough is enough. Go charge $10+ for a beer from a major brewery located in plain sight not even mile from the stadium just because you can somewhere else.

2023.05.28 02:12 tohams Jackson County property tax assessor allowed on property?

Is the person who does the property tax assessment that did an "exterior physical inspection" (quoted from the assessment letter I received) allowed on your property? Do they walk around it? Or are they only allowed on the sidewalk/street? It feels like going into your backyard would be trespassing.

2023.05.28 00:20 renarde33 Taking an existing *very* analog spring water business digital!

Hi all, I'm a customer for a local spring water business, and the (single, childless) sole owner is rapidly dying of cancer. Now that some of his customers have rallied and gotten his daily care coordinated (an ex-girlfriend, retired nurse is taking care of him with at home hospice care) I'm turning my attention to bringing his business infrastructure into the 21st century! I'll be taking it over and continuing the deliveries and business after he dies in the next few days/weeks.
I *desperately* need advice on which accounting software to use. I've used desktop Quicken for years for my personal finances but know it's old, cludgy and has plenty of competitors. I'd also welcome recommendations for an inexpensive but customer-friendly web payment processor and website authoring platform/software (his website was written with MS Frontpage 2002!!). I'm pretty comfortable with computers (I've done IT tech support for an ISP) but am hoping for a very short learning curve.
Here's his business model:
He has an artesian spring on his property. He sells up front shares in the spring to new customers, essentially a one-time membership fee of one share per bottle of water they will receive at each delivery. He based his business model on the way owners of goats, sheep and cows sell raw milk.
Each customer buys their own 3 gallon bottles, either from him, or they can supply their own. He delivers full bottles of water to a pre-arranged location at a particular time every Monday, so the customers have recurring subscriptions for their water deliveries. The customers subscribe for the number of bottles they want per delivery (1 - 10, as many bottles as they provide) and choose how often they wish to pick up their water at the delivery location. Customers can choose to pick up their water:
He accepts payments by credit card (through PayPal subscriptions), or cash or checks on delivery. Customers can choose to pay:
He also sells empty bottles and some one-off items at a negligible markup either at the pickup location or through his website.
He pays quarterly state and county sales taxes.
Currently he's running this business using a notebook, old style receipt book, paper customer files, PayPal, his personal email and a *very* antiquated, confusing website. I'll pull out all of my hair (and I have a lot of it) if it continues like this!
Thank you in advance for your advice!

2023.05.27 23:59 renry_hollins What is the best way to file an appeal for property tax assessment?

In my county, we just got our property tax assessments. According to a news report I read, 70% of homeowners are seeing a tax increase. According to the Nextdoor app, 100% of them are very pissed haha.
My home’s value went up $120,000 from last year. I want to appeal it. I’m reading so many folks giving so much different information. I have a realtor friend who worked up a comp sheet for me. I’ve also heard to include in my appeal a list of repairs that need to be done on the house (my house needs a paint job bad, plus some other stuff). What else should I be doing to prep for this appeal? ALSO- is there a sort of template that I should follow? Like… first this info, then this info, etc?

2023.05.27 23:44 Harlequin565 Help. Plz.

I'm not the brightest King in the world. Princess Osburh came flouncing into court asking for help with her claims in East Anglia. I was busy at the time, but gave her a spot on my rug to get warm until I could get a Round Tuit. I promptly forgot about her until she got drunk at court and folks were clamouring for her to be thrown in the dungeon. Ever-so-clever me, thought that would be a good way to get a hook on her, get her lands back and tax her to the hilt. She was so grateful to be released, and even more grateful when my armies smashed Mercia. I was less grateful because the prestige cost was quite steep. Anyway, I installed her, watched the map turn a bit more red, then frowned as I got the "you will lose land when your vassal snuffs it" pop up.
Somehow I failed to notice she was 49, separated from her monk of a husband, and childless. And the damn primary heir is the guy I just took the county from! I imagine he's sat by his fire, warming his cockles and laughing his stupid beard off.
I guess it's my fault that now, the only way I can think of to not lose the land, is to strip the poor woman of her title. Problem is that I feel quite bad about that.
Is there anything less overtly hammer-like I can do? At this point, I'm feeling like all the negative opinion and prestige costs are thoroughly deserved for my idiocy.

2023.05.27 23:21 brodlock2 The Defense Of Brandon Presley: Part 1

The Defense Of Brandon Presley: Part 1
Brandon Presley, currently in the Mississippi Public Service Commission, has a chance at winning in 2023. Lets explore the reasons why.

Section 1: Campaigning
Brandon Presley, has decided to go to every county in MS, as a attempt to get all of the votes he can do. Presley, has also stated that he would bring Medicaid expansion across the state, where around 2/3rds agree that Medicaid Expansion should exist. He has labeled himself as the common man for MS at times, and has bipartisanship support, as he went towards the golf coast and was welcomed by many republicans, independents, and democrats. He has attacked Reeves for the corruption he has done, such as what happened with Brett Favre. He has stated he will end corruption as gov, and much more. I believe one of his slogans are: "War On Corruption"
Section 2: Tate Reeves
Tate Reeves, in 2019 won by only 5 points against Attorney General Jim Hood. This was all before the scandals about him came out, and multiple other stuff. Tate Reeves has also failed to use Social Media Effectively, While Brandon Presley has made social media campaign posts, which gives Presley the edge. Meanwhile, Reeves hasnt done anything about Medicaid Expansion pretty much in the poorest state.

Section 3: Political Positions (Brandon Presley)
Brandon Presley, Has said himself that he is a Populist, FDR-Billy McCoy Democrat. He Endorsed Bush in 2004. Brandon Presley has also said that he would want Medicaid Expansion, and has Moderate or even conservative social views, which fit along MS Voters, which are mainly religious. For Example, he is Pro life "with the exception of rape" and "life of the mother". As Mayor, he cutted taxes, something conservatives like.

Section 4: Other Benefits
Brandon Presley, Cousin Of Elvis Presley, has many more things in stock to win. For Example, The exact day that he announced to run, Bennie Thompson Endorsed Him. Brandon Presley is also in a great place in the state, where he is excelling in rural places. In 2019, No republican ran against him which shows his popularity. Presley also has a advantage in the area he serves in. He has done many great things in the rural area where he serves, such as increasing internet availability there.

In Conclusion, Brandon presley should be able to win this election.

2023.05.27 22:46 lilpenstaffy Neighbors claim property as theirs and place their trashcans - do I have a case/what should I do?

I live at the end of a dead end street in unincorporated Los Angeles County (CA). My "neighbors" across the street from me have an address on a different street, yet place their trashcans on what the LA county assessors website says is my property. My "neighbors" claim it is theirs, and have been rude and combative when I and the previous owners of my property have tried to ask them about this issue, which has been going on for a while now. Do I have any legal standing to ask them to move their trashcans?

FYSA: My reasoning for wanting them to move their bins is so I, and/or my guests, can park there because I have a one car driveway and it makes it difficult when having guests over.

When we Challenged our Council Tax Band with the Lothian assessors, we found that the Evidence the assessor used was grossly misleading. He used wrong sizes, wrong apartment count, wrong property attachments, wrong sales price etc, etc.
When the assessor initially came out to show us his Evidence for moving our Band from D to E, we thought his Evidence looked convincing and we agreed with him. We also thanked him for showing us his Evidence.
After a 3 year investigation, our Evidence shows all 7 assessing staff members we dealt with gave us numerous misleading Evidence, statements and information.
We are now Campaigning for Change.
Anyone out there had a similar experience?

2023.05.27 20:54 princehints Addressing Red Flags on SF86 - Newly Discovered County Tax Liens

Hello everyone,
I recently joined this sub and have been enjoying the oscillations between deal-breakers and no-big-deals! Thanks for all of the great tips and some great laughs.
I've stumbled upon a few potential red flags on my SF86 and I'm hoping for some insight and advice.
• I'm self-employed with an unstable income as a post-production audio engineer for the past 7 years
•I’ve lived at a property that my mother owns for 12 years
• I have an underage drinking charge from 2010.
• My current debt is around $20K from wedding expenses from last year, but except for one late auto payment mistake, I have been consistent with payments. Additionally on my credit report I'm a signer on my mother's and wife's credit cards, which are all in good standing with perfect payments. I have one $750 medical bill in collections due to a Covid ER visit in 2020 when I was uninsured.
• My substance history includes occasional marijuana usage from 2018-2020, but I've been otherwise substance-free for 7+ years.
• I have no foreign contacts or foreign interests of any kind
However, my main concern is recently discovered tax liens of $4800 from LA county. This was due to ignorance about unpaid luxury taxes on a boat under my mother's and my name. I'm concerned that this might automatically disqualify me, particularly for my interim.
I discovered this 2 days ago with an online background check on myself and I'm urgently trying to resolve it before I fill out my SF86 next week, so that I can list them as resolved. I haven’t had any responsibility for the boat itself for ten years, but my mother doesn’t currently have the funds. I don't have the funds either, but I may be able to get help from my father (we have a strained relationship and I’m really not happy about going to him for help). My goal is to get my interim granted so that I can start a job I'm genuinely excited and passionate about in software engineering. The company is a government contractor.
Does anyone have experience or advice on how to navigate this situation? I plan on using additional comments to mitigate. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

2023.05.27 20:02 kelggg What kind of loan should I go for?

Hey all,
I moved into this fixer upper house in December of 2022. The guy who owns it (friend of mine) wants to sell it to me for $50k (LCOL, 1,600 sq ft house with 3 acres of land). I already pay the property taxes and do work on the house in substitution of rent.
It needs quite a bit of work but, nothing too serious. It needs a new roof (doesn't leak but, it's old), new siding, newer windows and other random updating projects.
I make about $35k a year. I'm working on getting a better job but, it's going to take time.
My credit score is horrible but, I'm also paying things off and it should be good by the end of the year.
He said he can do a rent to own but, rather just get the money and walk away from it as he wants to move out of state.
What kind of loan should I go for when I do go for financing? Is there one that would help pay for the roofing and siding?
I talked to the assessor and he said if I fixed the roof and siding the house will be worth almost $150k
Thank you!

2023.05.27 16:27 lizziepalooza My Response to the "High Grass & Weeds Program" Threatening Letter

My Response to the
(Pic of my gorgeous, meadow-like backyard haven that can only even be seen by one other house, taken today, eight days after my "violation" was issued.)
Dear Sirs, Madams, et al. of the High Weeds & Grass Program:
I am the owner and primary resident, along with my husband, at my address. This past week I received a violation notification from your fine board, indicating that I have unleashed “an environmental public nuisance … Specifically, vegetation which has not been cut, mowed or otherwise removed” that has attained a height of “twelve (12) inches or more.”
I would first like to request clarification, along with an extension on the time period you’ve suggested before the city comes on to my property and removes plants that are residing here quite intentionally. I feel it’s necessary to protest the vague distinction of “vegetation” that has achieved a “height of twelve (12) inches or more” that could only be offending a very few people in the small cul-de-sac in which I live. Virtually every other yard in my neighborhood has vegetation in the forms of trees, bushes, and other lawn ornamentation well over twelve inches, and I myself have a multitude of trees, bushes, and so forth that fall into the realm of “vegetation” that cannot reasonably fall under the quite specific measurement of twelve inches. I would like a list of the specific vegetation you wish for me to remove, which I think is quite a reasonable request before you demand money from me for forcing unwanted changes onto property I own and pay ever-increasing taxes on.
Furthermore, I’d like to address the fact that I have very specific intentions for the future of my yard and property that don’t include the almost constant noise pollution many of my neighbors in this same cul-de-sac produce with unnecessary and excessive use of gasoline-powered lawn tools that not only disrupt the natural habitat we’re lucky enough to enjoy in this still-secluded part of Marion County, but that also make this otherwise haven of nature and beauty into a constant cacophony of chainsaws, lawn mowers, edgers, and blowers. I’d like to point out that my neighbors allow feral cats to wander around the neighborhood—a practice that is far more disruptive in a small ecosystem like the one we enjoy here than allowing a few plants to take their natural course for a few months of the year. (I can send along a number of studies and articles about the nuisance feral cats create. Here is just one from
I’m quite happy to produce any number of scientific texts and references, in whatever form you’d like, that show leaving a property alone for the first two years of ownership is the best way to learn the natural landscape with which you’re working and create a productive plan for moving forward with a regenerative natural landscape that doesn’t require constant upkeep and that also provides valuable ecosystem protection that’s far more important than a collection of six houses having perfectly manicured lawns, at the expense of all the peace and quiet we should enjoy every day. I’m sure the landscapers who offered to mow my lawn for the incredibly reasonable price of $1,085 as a first payment and then $300/ mo into perpetuity are making sure to keep selling that expectation to my neighbors, but I hope to demonstrate a different way to be in the future. After all, we’re already seeing effects of climate change in our state, and we all should be changing our approaches and views when it comes to the same-old ways of performing lawn care.
I bought my house in December of 2020. The past two summers, I’ve done minimal lawn care and have observed where the sun hits the lawn at various times of day to learn where I want to plant the native plants I’ve been studying in the meantime. This year, I’ve been participating in No-Mow May with a large collection of people in various online communities encouraging people to stop feeling the need to constantly hack away at their lawns, wasting time and money, and also making neighborhoods worse in myriad ways with noise pollution. I’d ask that a member of the High Weeds & Grass Program come spend a day in my yard and witness him- or herself how much more pleasant it is to hear birds and wind and various wildlife than it is to hear constant motors running. Within the next five years, my lawn will be highly manicured and packed full of native plants in properly delineated flowerbeds, but I’m not a rich enough person to do it in one fell swoop. I will work toward making improvements over this long holiday weekend, as I’d planned to do anyway, but I’d still like a review that explains far more specifically what’s wrong with my lawn.
I don’t expect us to be in disagreement once we have a better understanding of one another’s intentions, but I’m shocked that in a city as progressive as Indianapolis and a state as conservative as Indiana we can’t appreciate both environmental truths and the importance of respecting personal property.
Please don’t assume that every person with a bit of a messy yard is lazy or neglectful or unloving of their property. I love my house and the land I own, and even though it’s incredibly beautiful to me with all my vegetation over twelve inches, I am willing to bring it in line with expectations once they’re more clearly outlined. I’d also like to remind the city AND my neighbors to have some grace and consideration for several factors: This is the first home my husband and I have owned. He and I lived our entire adult lives in apartments in the city before we moved here—over half our lives at this point. Lawn care hasn’t been something we’ve had to fit into our days, and also—we don’t have years of equipment built up. We had to replace our entire HVAC in the first year of owning our home, which limited the amount we’ve been able to invest in tools that others take for granted. Times are difficult. Inflation is unbelievably high. Wages are low. People are struggling and suffering. I find it hard to believe that a few stray plants in my yard are causing “an environmental public nuisance” to anyone who doesn’t need to check their priorities. No one comes and shows you how to properly care for your lawn. There’s a steep learning curve, and we’re still on it.
Please let me know what specifics you require of me. You’re welcome to come to my door (with a properly made appointment), email me directly, or give me a call instead of sending me vague, threatening letters in the mail.
My regards—

Playing tall: Informative post
Lately, I have taken to playing small(ish) kingdoms and have been having a blast. This led down a rabbit hole of me trying to min max the damn playthrough. With the addition of new buildings and slot mechanic, I took a look at the best counties to make your capital. Depending on your starting year and playstyle, a lot has changed.
In the long run, Bohemia, Cordoba and Sardinia are no longer the best places. (In my opinion.) Don't get me wrong, the reasons they were considered as the best still hold true. Until you hit High Medieval era, then they fall off fast.
The addition of windmills and waterwheels changes a lot of things. Currently, there are 3 places I would consider the best (haven't found their equal yet). And for a simple reason, they allow you to build these two structures at the same time. For this, you need farmland/plains and a large river. (Or forest and coastal, but you loose out on manors/farms.) These places are Middlesex (London), Isle de France (Paris) and Könugarðr (Kyiv for you non-norse plebeians).

County # of holdings Waterwheels Windmills
Isle de France 6 4 6
Könugarðr 6 3 6
Middlesex 5 5 5
Pagan 6 5 5
Baghdad 6 5 6 Caravanserei
All three have special buildings helping with developement/gold, Paris has a university as a bonus and Kyiv has the "Found Capital" decision.
I made a new character in 867 start and built up these three counties, keeping external bonuses to a minimum (all stats at 5, no county modifiers, no lifestyle/faith/culture). The next table has the relevant development/gold gains, I added Cordoba and Toledo+Cordoba as a comparison.

Some counties have been added in edits.

County Developement Gold
------------------------- -------------------------- ------------------
Könugarðr +5 +82
Könugarðr (Tax office) +5 +91
Könugarðr (Decision) +9 +105
Könugarðr (Decision+Tax office) +9 +115
---------------------------- ----------------------- --------------------
Isle de France +4,8 +88
Isle de France (Tax Office) +4,8 +96,6
Isle de France (Notre-Dame) +6,6 +103
Isle de France (Notre-Dame+Tax office) +6,6 +112
Isle de France (Notre-Dame+Uni) +7,2
------------------------------- -------------------------- ---------------------------
Middlesex +5,6 +78,4
Middlesex (Tax Office) +5,6 +85,4
-------------------------------- ----------------------------- ----------------------------
Cordoba +1,9 +29
Cordoba (Tax Office) +1,9 +35,5
Cordoba (Mosque) +3,6 +37,8
Cordoba (Mosque+Tax office) +3,6 +42,2
Toledo+Cordoba +2,2 +57,9
------------------------------ -------------------------- ------------------------------
Pagan +4,4 +80
Pagan (Tax Office) +4,4 +88
Pagan (Temple) +5,5 +86,7
Pagan (Temple+Tax office) +5,5 +95
----------------------------- --------------------------- --------------------------------
Baghdad +8,5 +84,7
Baghdad (Tax Office) +8,5 +92,5
Baghdad (University) +9,2 +84,7
Baghdad (University+Tax office) +9,2 93,3
These stats take into account only the hard values gained by the counties themselves and are not the most you can gain as there are plenty of other bonuses out there. Mosque+Notre-Dame have been separated for those pagan playthroughs, similarly you can hold Paris and Cordoba to get a whopping +8,1 development.
For example in my current MP run with my brother I played Kyiv (took it +-40 years into the game) and did not use my steward to develop the county, the decision modifier will end in 1024 and the current year is 990. Kyiv is at 32 development and gains +3 dev/month and +38,52g/month. I have 6 early medieval innovations complete and get a new one every +-9 years. Meaning that I will have unlocked mills in circa 1060. This is while focusing on tech, not going hardcore into bonuses (no agrarian etc.)
All three of these counties were excellent for a tall game before, but the current patch I feel has boosted them through the roof. It will cost a pretty penny to build everything, but nothing too crippling, especially if you don't have to worry about war expenditures.
This is not a comprehensive guide, there are ways to boost everything and make these numbers truly humongous, this is meant as just the baseline.
In conclusion, Paris comes out on top in the end, but I think that Kyiv gets there better, and maybe even safer. There is not big threat in the region (unlike the Karlings) and the Varangian Capital modifier helps a top. As a bonus, it is in better position to reform your own religion than Paris.
What truly breaks this, is the fact that max development kicks in only if you actively develop the county, meaning that if you don't, these gains are unhindered.
EDIT: Late medieval buildings not included in the spreadsheet. Everything is High medieval tech. Buildings are Manor+Farm+Blacksmith+Waterwheel+Windmill and a Bastion in capitol. Caravanserei not considered.
EDIT2: Brought to you by this majestic dwarf (without the trait).
EDIT3: Pick or didn't happen? Easy:
EDIT4: Updated for the county of Pagan.
EDIT5: I didn't go through the numbers, but the county of Kataka is another good candidate. 5 farmlands and a plains with a major river -> 4 waterwheels and 6 windmills + 2 of the counties are coastal. But it lacks any special buildings.
EDIT6: Found a new first place... Baghdad. And I just realized that the income will be skewed by the development level, so take the income columns as a rough estimate, not a hard number.
With an 18 stewardship steward promoting development, Baghdad ticked up to +11,6 dev/month, which is a miniscule increase in the grand scheme of things. Better use him for other tasks.
