I discovered this article from a fellow agent, and I thought it was worthy to pass along...Everyone should keep a sharp eye these days to Taxes, Politicians, and Terrorists! There IS a New Real Estate Transfer Tax in the ObamaCare Law One of the forums in which I participate has had stories on both sides of this issue for a couple of months… with the more conservative members saying that there is a 3.8% sales tax on the sale of homes, and those that are more supportive of the President and his policies saying that there isn’t. Neither side was real (0 comments)

(CNN) -- An upper layer of Earth's atmosphere recently shrank so much that researchers are at a loss to adequately explain it, NASA said on Thursday. The thermosphere, which blocks harmful ultraviolet rays, expands and contracts regularly due to the sun's activities. As carbon dioxide increases, it has a cooling effect at such high altitudes, which also contributes to the contraction. But even these two factors aren't fully explaining the extraordinary contraction which, though unlikely to affect the weather, (1 comments)

THE REPORT FROM CNN BELOW...LETS KEEP OUR FINGERS CROSSED!! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx New Orleans, Louisiana (CNN) -- For the first time in nearly three months, oil has stopped flowing into the Gulf of Mexico as BP proceeds with a highly anticipated test designed to measure pressure within its ruptured oil well. The move is being lauded as a positive step, accompanied by a strong note of caution that the cutoff is simply part of the test, as BP and government experts assess how the well is holding up. The test got under way Thursday after two days of delays, first as government scientists (0 comments)
I recently procured a very interested buyer for a listing of mine on the beach. This was a client who could pay all cash, and willing to close in as short a time frame as possible. Once I established this buyer was legit, and found that this was a perfect fit for them, I proceeded to help them put the numbers together. These new clients asked me "how much would it cost to make it our own?" (Remodel top to bottom + add a balcony). Well I said my company has special relationships with contractors over the last 20yrs, so we (1 comments)

Congress, once again, has approved short-term funding to keep the National Flood Insurance Program afloat for three more months, welcome relief to home buyers requiring flood insurance who couldn't close on deals or renew policies. But it's only a temporary fix. In fact, it's the third time this year that the flood program has been temporarily shut down due to lack of funding, then resurrected by congressional action. "It seems to be a political football that's been bounced back and forth. It's just terrible to play games like (0 comments)
Homeowners have a number of choices to protect their windows in a storm. The prices are as varied as the products. All prices given are approximate. They may vary depending on where the protection is to be installed (more expensive on higher floors that require ladders or scaffolding, for example), and anything custom-made will be expensive. The figures quoted here are an average of those cited by three independent dealers. But dealers also say they've been told by their wholesale suppliers that the price of aluminum will rise (0 comments)
Hello, Over the last 70+ days the oil spill has been on every ones mind, including me. I often get calls from concerned consumers who are mislead into believing all of our Florida beaches are destroyed. This simply is not the case. Clearwater Beach has been as beautiful as the day I moved here several years ago. Take a look at the following link, this is a great way to explain each area. As we sit today the oil spill has consistently held a 150 mile distance from our shores, this is largerly due to the currents, and Gulf (1 comments)
