Searching for free program - 05/04/08 11:39 AM
I used a free program that someone recommended on Active Rain and now I can't remember the name or web address. The program allows you to upload your existing flyers and add overlays in various shapes and colors such as "Just Listed," "Sold," "Price Change," "Strikethrough," etc. and then save the file to your computer and print it. It was a really neat way to enhance flyers. Does anyone use or know of such a free program? I would really appreciate your help and comments. (3 comments)
Cooking Outdoors - 05/03/08 12:08 PM
Warmer temperatures and the aroma of delicious meat charbroiling over an open flame make cooking outside very inviting. Before firing up the grill and donning your chef's cap, a quick safety check can prevent fires and explosions. Many accidents occur in the spring when a gas or propane grill has been left idle for a period of time or just after refilling and reattaching the grill's gas container. To reduce the risk of fire or explosions, be sure to: Check the tubes that lead into the burner for any blockage from insects, spiders or food grease.Check hoses for cracking, brittleness, holes and (0 comments)
Is Your Deck Safe? - 05/02/08 06:53 AM
Decks are a great place to have parties during the summer or to relax and enjoy an evening sunset. However, elevated decks, such as those that extend over a walkout basement, or second-story decks can present a serious hazard. Over the years, boards can rot, insects may damage the wood or fasteners and railings may loosen. The result is a structure that is weakened and in danger of collapse. Check your deck today to make sure it is safe. Inspect the attachment between the house and the deck. Look at the main beam under the deck for the presence of bolts and flashing. (0 comments)
Down Payment Assistance - 05/01/08 07:56 PM
I recently attended a meeting with the Nehemiah Area Manger for Georgia. The program is not for everyone, but one of my seller's has agreed to participate in the program. I think this is a great way to help buyers with good credit who are unable to save enough money for down payment, and or closing costs, and to help the seller net more at closing. I recently updated my web site http://www.dallaschambers.com/ to include information about the Nehemiah program. Looks like a win/win way to go to me. Just click on the button entitled "No Down Payment." (0 comments)
