It's my Valentine Wedding Anniversary, is it your's too? - 02/14/09 07:52 AM
Valentines day is an excellent day to get married! My husband and I married were married on February 14, 1990. It snowed in Phoenix that day. I can remember it as though it were yesterday. It was very cold and the snowflakes stuck to the ground for a few minutes. The news reported snow in Scottsdale and Cave Creek. When I saw the snow flakes falling I felt that it was a good omen. I would be happily married to my best friend. I knew my husband for a few months when on Christmas day, 1989 he asked me to marry him. I responded to his question with the question, when? He said, on (11 comments)

Loreena has carefully articulated the Economic Stimulus package that will probably be signed into law in a few days. For most Realtors, the challenge will be to find a first-time buyer who has a job, someone who can actually qualify for a loan. Via Loreena Yeo - Broker|Realtor(R) of Frisco Texas Real Estate (3:16 team REALTY): At 2:30pm CST on Friday February 13 2009, the US House of Representatives approved the following Economic Stimulus package that affects housing in the real estate industry.

Real Estate Allegory: You've Got To Pay Attention! It's the Main Thing! - 02/13/09 12:31 AM
Last week I was driving in the middlelane going south on I-17. In the far distance ahead I noticed that traffic started to brake. I glanced in my rear view mirror and saw that the man driving the car in back of me was busy shaving. His rear view mirror was angled downwards as he shaved. He had no idea of the impending traffic slowdown. I quickly changed lanes and watched him screeching stop. Drive defensively and stay alert. Via Mike Jones (Tucson Mortgage Company, LLC): This happened last night on my way home from work, and the business application to the story hit me like a ton (0 comments)

There are many swans that reside in Sun City West golf courses. They are cared for by volunteers who drive golf carts clearly marked, "Swan Volunteer". I saw these Sun City West swans while showing property near Deer Valley Golf Course. It's a lazy afternoon of primping and relaxing, just as what most retirees want to do when moving to a Phoenix retirement community. (5 comments)
Before You Count On That $15,000 Tax Credit... - 02/09/09 09:35 AM
There was a bill passed in October 2008 that would provide a $7,500 tax credit which is applied to the 2008 tax return. The tax credit will be payed back in 15 years - interest free, that's $500 a year. That's a great deal for the first time home buyer or a buyer who has not owned a home for the last 5 years. Via Patricia Kennedy (Evers & Company): A lot of time, people outside of Washington read media coverage about stuff that goes on here, and it's confusing. This week, there seems to be some confusion about the President's economic plan that is (0 comments)
