Via Janet Guilbault California Mortgage Banker/Broker: First time home buyers: Are you still at the computer, doing endless "research" on how to snag the $8000 TAX CREDIT for buying a house this year? Does the November 30th deadline seem like a million years away as you think about fireworks (not turkey leftovers)? First time home buyers: Get your butts in gear. NOW. This is the wrong time to claim you only get motivated when a (2 comments)
It's all About WE Not ME - 06/23/09 11:16 PM

Via Wendy Rulnick "Its Wendy!" Destin Real Estate -Florida (Rulnick Realty, Inc.): My husband and I had to go shopping for a new television last weekend. The old one was about to die - its channel guide was getting fuzzy and my eyesight is already "bat-like". We researched our options online, found one we wanted, then set out for a reconnaissance mission to Sears, Best Buy and (1 comments)
Via Paula Burt (Prudential Bob Yost HomeSale Services): Here's a new wrinkle, at least for me. My most recent buyer customer found a nice piece of land he would like to purchase so he can eventually build a home on it. His dad owns a restaurant and has turned it over to him, mentoring and advising him as he learns. About 3 months before contacting me, dad took his son "off the books", and now the book-keeper (cousin) would have to create a paper trail that a (0 comments)
Is It Worth It? Buying A Foreclosure At Auction... - 06/15/09 06:29 PM
Great points made. So...if you're gonna bid at the Courthouse, make sure you have read the notice. Most say "Cash" or Certified Funds" at sale. That means before you leave the Courthouse steps. Others say 24 or 48 hours. You can deliver the funds within the alloted time. So read the notice carefully. Linda Lipscomb RE/MAX Unlimited 870 W.

Relay for Life - 06/04/09 11:14 PM
Last Friday night was our first experience at the Relay event at Beech Lake in Lexington, TN. The community support was amazing as thousands showed up. Lots of good food and entertainment. We were a rookie team. Not knowing what to expect. Our learnings from the event: 1. Lots of work. Recruit more team members next year. 2. If you are serving food, get there earlier and plan to serve the dinner crowd. At around 10:00 most call it a night. 3. Develop a list of things to sell and raise more money during the event. 4. Make it fun. Play games, scavenger (0 comments)
