Here we go with the dot coms of real estate espousing their expertise, customer satisfaction, and abundance of savings in commission. I checked on one of my favorites; owners.com offers a listing complete with MLS and three websites for $395. for six months. Now, although all of that sounds real nice, here is the grim reality of listing what might be your biggest investment in your lifetime with a dot com; Like so many of the insurance companies offering X amount of savings on average for insuring with them, dot coms are like this one are advertising an average of (0 comments)

New Construction Plays Integral Part in Housing Recovery - 05/21/12 09:12 AM
If new construction is a sign of better things to come for the South Florida housing recovery then we need more of it. Outside of condos very little new construction is underway in Dade and Broward counties. One look at the Miami skyline and it is dotted with cranes as new condos are going up like doves at a peace rally. It is a sign of the times. Condos are in demand, and foreign buyers are willing to invest in them. But Broward is a different animal. Outside of Fort Lauderdale most of the area is basically suburbia. Our biggest problem?

Some Buyers Never Cease to Amaze me - 05/08/12 07:12 AM
In the wrong way!!! I recently fought tooth and nail for a listing from the Gods and was fortunate enough to win out. I knew immediately upon entry that I had to have it because it was going to be priced right, was in a fantastic neighborhood, and was a traditional sale. Who could ask for anything more?
But nothing could have prepared me for the sheer number of boneheads that showed up at these people's door within a day of signing the contract and posting in the MLS. I am not talking about realtors either, fortunately. I'm talking (4 comments)

Know Your Heat Index Before Your Next BBQ - 05/03/12 12:19 PM
Read ahead if you were curious about the strength of chili peppers and how they are tested or rated. Since BBQ season is just ahead I thought my readers might want to know more about these famous peppers before popping one in your mouth. The Scoville scale is a measurement of the spicy heat (or piquance) of a chili pepper. The number of Scoville heat units (SHU) indicates the amount of capsaicin present. Capsaicin is a chemical compound that stimulates chemoreceptor nerve endings in the skin, especially the mucous membranes; pure capsaicin has a Scoville rating of 16,000,000 SHU. The scale (0 comments)
Call Plumbing Manufacturer Before You Buy Again - 05/02/12 11:50 AM
Before you go out and purchase a new faucet for your bathroom shower or kitchen sink take a look at the brand name. You will be surprised to find that most of the companies that produce plumbing supplies not only guarantee their products, but do so for life. What's more, you can contact them for a replacement or just parts for free without even using a receipt. This would apply to those who tend not to keep their receipts, but even more for those who bought their home via new construction and never got one in the first place. Before making (2 comments)
