One more reason I'm impressed with Apple and my new iMac - 09/08/10 09:59 AM
Okay, so I can't believe I am actually writing a blog in praise of a computer or a particular company knowing full well that what seems great today may crash tomorrow (although all my friends who have used Macs for years assure me that I'll not be sorry). Here's the thing. I've been a PC guy since who can remember when... I think I got my first sometime in the 80's but don't recall for sure. From time to time I've wondered if all the hype about Macs was anything more than just that, hype, but never took the time to (0 comments)
Jacksonville Short Sales - Help for the Seller! - 09/07/10 12:57 PM
Jacksonville, Florida is not unlike many areas when it comes to short sales. Short sales in the Jacksonville area have seemingly become the norm. I say "seemingly" because the fact is that only a little less than 1 in 4 currently active listings in the Jacksonville area is listed as a short sale... one in four is still a lot, though, and if you are one of those who is faced with trying to sell your house for less than you owe on it then you probably have more questions than answers. Our goal is to help you find the (0 comments)
COLLECTION OF DELINQUENT ASSESSMENTS THRU RENT - POWERFUL TOOL FOR FLORIDA ASSOCIATIONS - 09/06/10 09:34 AM
This new law is one that has puzzled me since I first read it. While it seems to be well-intentioned, it also seems to have been hastily crafted and could cause more problems than it attempts to solve. We appreciate the author, Richard Zaretsky, for allowing us to re-blog this for our readers. Richard does a nice job of clarifying some of the 'language' in the law but, of course, we are still left wondering just how the law is going to play out in real life. I would encourage anyone who finds this post on our blog to follow on (0 comments)
Jacksonville Florida Real Estate Sales Information: Hey home sellers... you know what? People don’t shop for real estate today the way they did 10 years ago. Heck... they don’t even shop the way they did 2 years ago. So here’s the question? Why do real estate agents keep on doing things the same way they did 25 years ago? Let’s get real people! It's time to put those dusty old marketing methods in moth balls where they belong and join the rest of the hi-tech world. Keep up or get left behind... the choice is yours! If you've had your home (0 comments)
