It will be a long time before the abundant number of short sales and foreclosures in this country decreases and becomes a bad memory rather than a crippling reality. I just found this interesting article on CNN Money that talks about how real estate agents are engaging in short sale scams ripping off banks and making a killing on them. The article begins with this excerpt:
"Just as the housing market began to collapse near the end of 2007, a real estate agent in Bridgeport, Conn. asked Regions Bank if it would accept a $102,375 bid on a home that (2 comments)
Why Google+ Will Kick Facebook's Butt! - 07/14/11 09:00 AM
Back when Facebook was in its infancy it was cool because it was exclusive. You had to be part of the Harvard University network...students and alumni. It wasn't an easy club to join. For almost everyone it would be impossible in those days. Google+ is playing the exclusivity card right now and is cool because you need an invitation to join. There are many social networks on the web that play that exclusive card to the limit. Asmallworld.net is a club that is so exclusive that even after gaining access to it you won't be able to invite even your best (5 comments)

Hot Dog Eating Contest! Happy July Fourth! - 07/04/11 11:09 AM
http://msn.foxsports.com/other/story/hot-dog-contest-entrants-prepare-for-their-super-bowl-070211?gt1=39002 The stats mentioned in this article are incredible. How many oysters do you think you can eat in 10 minutes...a couple of hundred? I guess you won't have time for the sauces and horseradish application in that race against time. My plan is to develop the Super Bowl for real estate. They apparently have the Super Bowl for hot dog eating. So how would the Masters or the Super Bowl for real estate look? Would it be more like the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest or the Grammys or Oscars? Instead of the best actor and actress would it (2 comments)
Blog About Noodles And Get 30 Days In Jail! - 07/03/11 12:44 PM
OK....so is isn't an AR blog or even one written in this country. But sometimes before you render an opinion on a restaurant, a hotel, an airline or even a retailer or manufacturer perhaps you need to think twice...are you being too critical or do they really deserve a bad review. I was just at a restaurant Friday evening and the service was just plain strange/ awful. I wouldn't write a bad review for this new restaurant (even if I am that type of person who writes reviews) because it is the July Fourth Weekend and I'll bet they had a (5 comments)
