Do you know where your gas cap is? - 10/30/11 03:17 PM
It’s embarrassing to admit, but even though I have been driving the same car for years, I still forget which side of the car the gas cap is located. This usually happens when I go to a new gas station or if there are a lot of cars and I need to drive around to get to a pump – this is enough for me to forget which side of the car the gas cap is located. BUT I learned something new today! Next to your gas gauge is an ARROW that POINTS to which side of your car the (0 comments)

There are a lot of tips and checklists for buying new construction in Olympia, WA but I’d like to add one more tip that is sometimes overlooked yet very important, and that is obtaining mechanic’s lien coverage with your title insurance policy. What are Mechanic’s Liens? Mechanic’s liens are legal claims placed on the home you are purchasing by contractors, subcontractors and suppliers who have completed the work but haven’t been paid by the builder/seller. In our turbulent economic environment, now more than ever, it is very important to understand what title insurance policy you are getting as a buyer. (0 comments)

Should sellers think twice before allowing buyers to do additional specialized home inspections? - 10/16/11 04:41 PM
Selling a home that is built in the 1970s or earlier brings up additional home inspections that a buyer may want to consider, such as inspecting for: · lead-based paint· asbestos· sewer lines· soil contamination from an oil storage tank· mold, etc. But should a seller think twice before allowing a buyer to do these additional specialized home inspections?

I think everyone on both sides of the (4 comments)
How Toastmasters has improved just about everything in my business - 10/11/11 06:12 PM
Everyday I receive emails about the latest and greatest schemes, plans and products that will skyrocket my business and income. Today was no different. I received an email that promised if I purchased this lead-generating program, I would be able to make $1 million in one year. Wow! That’s amazing!
