Silly Wabbit, Tricks Are NOT For Kids and They’re NOT For You Either! The month of September is REALTOR ® Safety Month. Your safety should be your #1 concern in every situation. Nothing else is as important.

George Souto is reminding us to keep an eye on the interest rates. I haven't checked today's rates to see what they did today. Buyers pay attention to George's blog. Via George Souto NMLS# 65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages Connecticut: After watching interest rates steadily decline for most of this month, the change the beginning of last week and has continued into this week.

Via John Mulkey, Housing Guru (TheHousingGuru.com): While many have blamed irresponsible actions by homeowners for the recession and the collapse of housing, much of the problem lies with the big banks; and housing can’t recover unless the banks are honest.

Finally, the suit alleges, the bank filed fraudulent (1 comments)

Water, Water, Water ~ A Major Component of Location, Location, Location, When Going Rural in Southeast Oklahoma!
Location, more often than not, being the determining point of value, even in otherwise identical homes or commercial properties, it can also be said that water may very well be the major component of that location choice if you're going rural.
When moving to the country remember that not all properties have piped water to them AND not all locations produce good drinking water if you decide to have a well drilled.

FHA Requirements For Distances For Properties With Well & Septic Systems - 09/19/11 08:23 AM
The distances between your well and your septic system must be according to Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality if you're in Oklahoma. That is a the topic of the next blog from The Get Real, Real Estate Blog. But I also wanted to pass on to my readers in Oklahoma, this blog written by George Souto about the FHA Requirements for those distances if you're planning on getting an FHA mortgage.
Other blogs from The Get Real, Real Estate Blog that will help you with these topics in ChoctawCounty and McCurtainCounty are:
Lake levels remain low in McCurtain County and Choctaw County Oklahoma. The drought and high heat both have affected the levels. If we do not get significant rain soon it can even affect employment in our counties.
Data from the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers indicates that as of Friday, September 15, 2011, Broken Bow Lake was 9.6 feet below normal level. Even though it is below level, 201 cubic feet per second average discharge from the lake through the turbines, from 3 pm to 6 pm, into Mountain Fork River continues.

Should you insulate a hot water heater? - 09/17/11 07:17 PM
Mary had a chance to ask a home inspector about insulating water heaters. Do you have a gas water heater? You will be very interested in the part about gas water heaters or in our area, propane water heaters. Via Mary Sitton (Keller Williams) Gann Realty Group: During a recent home inspection I had an opportunity to talk to the home inspector about hot water heaters. My question was should all hot water heaters be insulated or wrapped? It's a good idea to insulate your electric hot water heater, adding insulation can reduce standby heat losses by 25%-45% if your R value (0 comments)

Individual Sewage Treatment Systems allow Rural Oklahomans to safely handle wastewater in an environmentally friendly way. More on-site systems in Oklahoma are septic tanks and lateral lines, than any other type of individual wastewater treatment for a rural residence. Although there are several types of individual wastewater treatment systems other than septic systems that are becoming more commonly used such as aerobic systems with spray irrigation, aerobic systems with drip irrigation, low-pressure closing system, and lagoon systems.
