Snowing? Yea right! It got you looking! Yes it is warmer in Fort Myers Beach. Much warmer. I have now changed my schedule. Wake up earlier and take a stroll or a short jog on the beach. Its better this way, otherwise the humidity rises after 11 a.m. We have more energy this way. Quite a few have the same idea. Its no secret. They just start their lives earlier. As a night owl its an adjustment but it feels good to have done so much by mid morning. Otherwise I would be like a lizard and sleep somewhere (2 comments)
Une short sale est un accord entre le prêteur et le propriétaire d’un bien immobilier lorsque il ou elle est au moins trois mois retard sur leurs mensualites et peut prouve en noit et blanc qu’ils ne peuvent plus payer ces payements. Cet accord est presente a la banque elle-meme par un agent immobilier qui represente le proprietaire.Typiquement la valeur de la proprietee est dramatiquement plus basse que la somme financee par le preteur. Pour le proprietaire c’est une maniere d’eviter une saisie (foreclosure aux USA). Pour un acheteur cela peut etre une aubaine. Je dis “peut etre”. (0 comments)
