No Adult Supervision at California Association of Realtors - 07/23/12 05:09 PM
No Adult Supervision at California Association of Realtors; Teenagers are in Control. The entire universe requires a prospective buyer to tender an Earnest Money Deposit when that buyer offers to purchase real estate. But not in California.

Will Electric Generators Become "Must-Have" Home Appliances? - 07/10/12 04:46 PM
Will Electric Generators Become "Must-Have" Home Appliances? Electric power outages darkened a wide swath of the country last week. Hundreds of thousands of Midwest and Northeasterners lost power. As of last Sunday, more than 10,000 residents in Ohio were still without electricity after 9 days.
