More On How To Make A Good Buy. - 05/28/08 03:51 PM
Last week we responded to a question of how to make a good buy in this market by addressing some of the terminology and circumstances that have been confusing Buyers, We Hear So Much About Being Able To Make A Good Buy Now ... How Do We Get One? We thought it important to continue the good-buy process with some tactics and mechanics that will help you get the best buy you can on a given property. One mistake we see is the purchase offer being made dramatically below the asking price ... with no consideration as to the asking price (0 comments)
We Hear So Much About Being Able To Make A Good Buy Now ... How Do We Get One? - 05/28/08 03:43 PM
What a wonderful yet frustrating time to be a Buyer! There are more properties for sale than there are Buyers. Buyers are being inundated with information and much of it is conflicting. The result is a sense of confusion and frustration among Buyers ... "buy now"... but "the market might go lower" ..."you should get concessions when you buy", but there are no guidelines. There are basically four types of properties today: bank owned, foreclosure, preforeclosure/short sale, and owner. Many homes are being or have been foreclosed on. Buyers are told that this is a good opportunity for making a good (3 comments)
The Weeds Are Growing Faster Than My Garden ... What Can I Do? - 05/21/08 12:57 PM
It sounds like you have the very situation that Webster uses to define the weed: "a plant that is not valued where it is growing and is usually of vigorous growth; especially: one that tends to overgrow or choke out more desirable plants."

Removing them will require an assessment of the type of weed(s), size of the area affected, surrounding plants, ability to physically remove them, or the need for chemical application, and the selection of tools and chemicals to get the job done.

There's Water in Our Ditch and It Hasn't Rained ... What's Up? - 05/01/08 05:56 PM
Its that time of year again - time to irrigate the crops that keep the Valley so green and the aesthetic wonder that it is. Throughout the Valley is a network of conveyance ditches that bring water from the Carson Rivers (East and West Forks) to the property where it is to be put to beneficial use. Look around and you'll see them everywhere, even in town. It sounds like you have such a ditch on the edge of your property. Yes, it hasn't rained, but the ditch is full of water because it is being transported from the river to (1 comments)
