Green Cleaning Tip #1 - 01/29/10 02:30 PM
Most of us have no idea the horrible, harsh chemicals, that we not only clean with, but also inhale and put into our bodies. There are quite a few less expensive, and "eco-friendly" ways to clean, not only our homes, but our clothes, bodies, etc. Think that "Green" cleaning is expensive? It can be, if you go to Whole Foods, or other natural grocery stores, and buy the products on their shelves. However, one of the best, inexpensive, disinfectants is Vinegar!! Not to mention it's a great fabric softener! And you can drink it!!! I know most people don't like the smell (1 comments)
Double Dip In Housing Market - 01/28/10 12:49 PM
For over the last year, all we have heard is mostly negative information regarding the housing market conditions, and finally, the media has decided to share some positive information regarding the so-called "recovery" of the housing market. However, if you look deeper than the surface of the matter, you will see what is "recovering" will soon dip down again. Let's take a look back at 2006, which was the biggest year in history for real estate in the United States. It was also the biggest year for 3-year, and 5-year ARM (Adjustable Rate Mortgages). Well, we all saw what happened when (0 comments)

Calling All Real Estate Investors!!! - 01/20/10 01:29 PM
The FHA Commissioner announced that FHA will be waiving the 90 day seasoning regulation on properties that have a contract dated on, or after February 1, 2010. Up until 2/1/10, as an investor/flipper, you had to wait until the title was in the current owner/investor's name for 90 days before it could be sold to a new purchaser. Of course, there are guidelines for this, just like anything else. However, this is great news for investors who slowed down due to the restriction, or people with extra cash who want to get into investing and flipping real estate. Remember real estate (0 comments)
Look For the "BEST" Deal? Don't Miss the Boat..... - 01/04/10 04:06 PM
Majority of the buyers I represent are first-time home buyers, and up until this past year, I haven't had the challenges of getting them to the closing table that I've faced in 2009. As I'm sure this is the case with a lot of Realtors. As a consumer myself, I want the best bang for my buck, as well. However, sometimes when you are awaiting the "Perfect Deal", you miss a Great opportunity. I have had several buyer clients this past year that had their eye set on one property, and continued to tell me that they were going to wait (3 comments)
