So there is a January Challenge too????? 31 days you say? Count me in! - 11:11 PM
All month long I kept seeing this December Challenge thing.
14th day......21st day.....Christmas Day even...every day and I didn't know what the reason was...but now I do.
So here I sit, on New Years day.....I actually started this post at about 1pm, but had to run some errands, and there it was, on the car radio clock. 1:11 on 1/1/11 and it made me think.......what shall I write about today.
So here it is....a little bit of Motivation, a little bit of Humor and a little bit of scolding the banks, crazy Realtors, and of course....Obama and Pelosi....

It's 2011 - When Should You List Your Home For Sale-January, February or March. As is often the case at this time of the year sellers who did not sell last year or want to move this year want to know when is the best time to re-list their home. If you took your home off the market last November or early December, once the Holidays are done we still have a lot of winter to deal with. On December 31st our temperatures were as high as 55F. All the snow melted and even my son said-hey spring has arrived. Well

Burglar Proofing Your Home - 08:11 PM
Feeling safe in your home is paramount for every homeowner and their families. I realize that some you do not receive my monthly newsletter so I wanted to share some of the key Points in This Months Newsletter Regarding Burglary Prevention.
Tips on Safeguarding your Home
Make sure all exterior doors have good locks. At the very least you want a dead-bolt lock with a 1" throw. Always lock up when you go outside. Secure sliding glass doors with bars or locks to prevent the door from sliding on it's track. An old broom handle works very well. Make sure all

DANGER, DANGER WILL ROBINSON!
A MESSAGE FOR REAL ESTATE AGENTS WHO LIST OR SELL SHORT SALES.
Just think about it for a moment. . . .
IF SHORT SALES ARE A POSITIVE ALTERNATIVE TO FORECLOSURE. . . . .
WOULDN'T IT NATURALLY FOLLOW THAT THE "DEED IN LIEU OF "DILO" IS A POSITIVE ALTERNATIVE TO A SHORT SALE???
THE FINAL SOLUTION! After all, in the long run, or short run, as it may be, the home owner is going to lose their home no matter which final solution is done by them or to them.
CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING MYTHS AND RULES:

CHARLES BUELL KNOWS HOW TO WORK.
He learned it on the farm, where children grow up with a good work ethic.
We learn discipline and hard work. We also learn that "something you do every day means something you do every day."

31 Days of January Challenge - Day 1
Happy New Year everyone!
There's a new Challenge in town. It's the 31 Days of January challenge for 2011. This one challenges us to write a blog a day, every day, for the month of January, 2011. I did the December challenge, but I'm going to step my game up a little with this one. Instead of just blogging about whatever each day, I'm going to try to add something and build my blogging skills all through the month.
It's gonna take some time to find my "voice", but the challenge will help.

California's Short Sale Anti-Deficiency Law, SB 931, Takes Effect January 1, 2011 - 01:16 PM
Elizabeth Weintraub works in the heart of short sale land in and about Sacramento. She (and I) have been counting down the days until SB 931 goes into effect. I have been avoiding listing short sales during the final months of 2010, waiting until I could offer more hope to sellers when SB 931 goes into effect. Some say there will be more foreclosures as banks factor in the effect of not being able to sell the deficiency to collection companies. Time will tell!

Cary NC Continues to Thrive - 11:13 AM
Last year I wrote a blog post called Cary NC achieves a decade of growth and prosperity. I did so because I was actually amazed at the growth we had achieved in the Cary/Apex/Holly Springs area over the past 10 years. In 2010 the growth and prosperity has continued and this area is becoming the poster child for recovery from the Great Recession.
So, what's happening in Cary?
While other areas continue to struggle with their economies Cary's unemployment rate has continued to fall from nearly 7 percent 18 months ago to now just over 5 percent. How
