Get Your Home Ready To Sell This Spring! - 02/22/11 06:08 PM
Every where I look these days, I am seeing freshly tilled soil. The area around Brevard, North Carolina is a rich agricultural area that has fields of century old family farms and small garden plots in virtually everyone's back yard. Several years ago there was a survey done by the local newspaper that reported that 60% of households in the area have a garden of some kind. This is the time of year, after winter is hopefully well on its way out, when people start turning soil and preparing their gardens for the planting and growing season. The same idea should hold (0 comments)

If you're looking for ways to save money.... get your groove on with Groupon! These days, I'm all about finding ways to save money any way I can. So I was intrigued when I started hearing about Groupon. I'm still learning my way around the site and the concept, but Groupon is a free email subscription that sends you great deals on restaurants and services in your area. In the last few weeks I've received notices about discounts to a variety of area restaurants including one today that was a "groupon" of $15 for $35 worth of Tapas at Zambras, a (0 comments)
FSBO's on Realtor.com - Is that what you want? - 02/07/11 05:51 PM
Maybe I've been living under a rock but I learned recently that FSBOs are on Realtor.com, putting them on the same playing field as properties listed by agents who are doing the real business of real estate sales. These "sham listings" are showing up on Realtor.com because of a loop hole in the system that I think needs to be closed. Since Realtor.com is the "official site of the National Association of Realtors", I decided to contact Ron Phipps, the current President of NAR to see what he had to say about it. His response was only to defer my email (2 comments)
