A Garage Sale Gem - Ansel Adams Glass Negatives Worth $200M - 07/28/10 09:49 PM
Evidently, a California man purchased a box of glass negatives at a garage sale about ten years ago for $45. Talk about the phrase, "One man's junk is another man's treasure." The glass negatives have been deemed to be the work of famous nature photographer Ansel Adams. The negatives were long thought to be lost during a fire at Adams' studio. The negatives are considered to be worth approximately $200,000,000! So if you are selling a home that appears to have a pretty good collection of junk in it, you may want to take a moment to sift through the junk. (6 comments)
Forget Hollywood! Check Out Philadelphia's Movie Scene - 07/27/10 11:19 PM
For a little fun this summer, check out the Philadelphia Movie Scene. You can take a Philadelphia Movie Sites Tour which is a fun, fact-filled trip (including actual movie clips) around the city to over 50 filming locations of more than 30 movies and TV shows filmed right here in the greater Philadelphia area.
Philadelphia and the surrounding areas have been the backdrop for many major motion pictures. A favorite of Hollywood director M. Night Shyamalan (he was born in India but raised in suburban Philadelphia), his first movie set in Philadelphia was Wide Awake in 1998. He went on to (0 comments)
Agents Need to Wear Many Hats - Sometimes Cleaner, Handyman, and General Contractor - 07/23/10 05:20 AM
We recently had a condo for sale. It had trouble selling. The owner was a chain smoker and had numerous health problems. As a result, she often had to deny showings when she wasn't feeling well. But even when buyers were able to get in, many complained of the smoke smell in the home. Finally the seller moved to warmer climates with some help from her family and we were able to get new carpets, fresh paint and a few kitchen upgrades done in her condo. While we were there taking new photos of the now vacant, transformed condo, I noticed the (6 comments)
Via Tim Maitski "Video Agent Guy" (HomeAtlanta.com): A friend of mine forwarded me an email that's being sent around saying that if the "Cap and Trade" Bill that just passed in the House gets through the Senate, home sellers will need to make energy saving repairs before they'll be allowed to sell their homes.

Why Realtors Need Vacations - 07/19/10 11:00 AM
Scott and I have been on vacation. Taking a vacation is very difficult when you sell houses because it seems like a 24/7 job most weeks. The only time clients or other agents don't seem to call or make requests is from 11pm to about 7am - any other time is fair game. We find that it is vital to get away from work occasionally. It is a time to recharge, relax and spend uninterrupted time with important people in our lives. In our case, that would be each other and our two teenage kids - who thankfully still seem to enjoy (3 comments)

Tax Credit Extended for Pending Sales to September 30, 2010 - 07/01/10 12:28 PM
Yesterday, Congress extended the deadline for closings from June 30, 2010 to September 30, 2010 for the Home Buyer Tax Credit. This is great news for the thousands of pending home sales that did not close in time for the June 30th deadline. Those buyers will still be able to receive the tax credit (up to $8,000 for first time buyers and $6,500 for existing homeowners who buy a new primary residence) as long as they now settle by September 30th. There are valid reasons why some pending homes sales were unable to close by June 30th. Because many of these factors were out the (0 comments)
