TERMITE INSPECTIONS - THE GOOD - THE BAD - AND THE VERY COSTLY! - 08:28 AM
WHY THAT TERMITE MAINTENANCE CONTRACT MAY BE WORTHLESS, OR WORSE!
THAT TERMITE MAINTENANCE CONTRACT MAY BE HAZARDOUS TO THE HEALTH OF YOUR HOME.
TERMITES haven't survived for 251,000,000 years without good survival skills. TERMITES are clever creatures. As with so many pests that are the bane of our home maintenance regimen, in the right climate, a termite infestation can be so destructive that they have become part and parcel of the process of buying a home.
*Home owners dread them*Home buyers fear them*Buyers agents deal with them*Listing agents doubt them*Home inspectors suspect them*Termite inspectors know them*Lenders often neglect them

Banks Spruce Up Foreclosures to Boost Sales - 02:22 PM
Sprucing up a home to sell it faster and for more money is a strategy frequently advocated by real estate agents. In this case, though, the seller is Wells Fargo Bank, and the home Schramm and Siwicki are buying is a foreclosure.
There are still plenty of dilapidated foreclosures on the market marred by water damage, mold, broken windows and missing plumbing fixtures, properties that hold little appeal except to investors and professional rehabbers.
But as the quality of foreclosures and the communities where they are located has improved, so, too, has interest in them by consumers. To entice those buyers

Reach For The Sky!!! - 04:34 PM
Reach For The Sky!!! No, there's no robbery going on here Pilgrims!! (John Wayne reference for the REALLY young ones amongst us) We're starting to see the fruits of our labors from last fall! We planted around 1000 crocus and daffodil bulbs last fall, and the crocus are not only up, but popping open some beautiful flowers!
We see the green of the daffodils beside the house, driveway and out in the woods where we placed them, but no blooms yet! But with the gorgeous spring is almost here weather we're having, it's probably just a matter of days
Condo Report for 2011 - 07:08 PM
How well are condos selling? Are we still in a downward spiral because of all the overbuilding in 2007?

Beautiful Flowers and the Freeway are NOT Incompatible - 10:37 AM
One thing we in Southern California enjoy year-round are the flowers. They go through some pretty amazing changes, and beauty private homes, hillsides and fields.
One place in particular in Carlsbad has several amazing displays throughout the year...an area one would not commonly think of as being a place to find such an array of color.
The Cannon Road exit has, perhaps, the most beautiful flower displays you will find in our area right along the freeway. Indeed the exit is like driving through a wildflower garden. This is just one small area are you exit the freeway. So nice to
