I'm Tired of Dealing with Tires - 11/28/08 11:32 AM
Yeah, I'm tired of dealing with tires left in REO properties! I know we occasionally get a REO property where the owner has left a used tire or two still in the garage. I mean those properties that have stacks and piles of used tires just rotting away. For instance, we were assigned an REO property back in the spring and upon initial inspection I noticed there were piles of tires visible from the street on different parts of the property. We estimated there were between 500 and 600 tires in different parts of this property. We had a very difficult (3 comments)

The NFL Thinks Harrisburg is a Baltimore Suburb - 11/23/08 11:46 AM
That's right. The Harrisburg CBS television station was placed as a home market for the Baltimore Ravens since under the NFL rules and television agreement, WHP-TV's viewing area is within 75 miles of the stadium. Now there is some history here. When the Colts were in Baltimore, they played on Baltimore's north side at Memorial Stadium and there were thousands of Colts season ticket holders that lived in south Central Pennsylvania. The location was a fairly easy drive down Interstate 83 to the beltway and then only a ten minute drive from there to the stadium. There were quite a few (0 comments)
New Airline Starts Flying From Harrisburg International Airport - 11/21/08 05:58 PM
One of the negatives about living in a smaller market is the lack of transportation opportunities when you just have to get out of town. The Harrisburg International Airport is a very nice facility converted from the former Olmsted Air Base with a new terminal, very long runways and short security lines. The bad part is that it can be difficult to get anywhere from here. This week, there were six airlines serving this area; Air Canada (2 flights a day to Toronto), Continental (a few flights to Cleveland and Newark), Delta (to Atlanta and Cincinnati), Northwest (to Detroit and Minneapolis), (0 comments)
Can Short Sale Get You In Trouble With The State? - 11/17/08 04:06 PM
Well, it might. According to an article published Friday in the Pacific Business News, a new law in Hawaii called the Mortgage Rescue Fraud Prevention Act could mean some real estate agents would be practicing as "Distressed Property Consultants" which requires them to abide by a separate set of rules from the real estate codes. http://www.bizjournals.com/pacific/stories/2008/11/17/story11.html . So some Hawaii real estate brokerages have stopped listing short sale properties as a matter of policy until they receive some definition as to if their involvement in a short sale would fall under this act. So a law that was designed to protect homeowners (3 comments)
