Christmas is approaching faster than ever this year. Pretty soon it will be 2009 and we will be wondering what happened to 2008. I wanted to take the opportunity in this blog to remind people about what Christmas is all about. It's not about the presents, parties or decorations. REMEMBER................... Cristmas is for Christ Lets celebrate the birth of Christ this Christmas more than ever. It is at this time that we give thanks to God for giving his one and only son to die for our sins.

Sell your home before it goes to foreclosure - 12/09/08 08:12 PM
I have a question for you? Why would you not try to sell your home prior to it going to foreclosure? I understand fully what homeowners are dealing with when it comes to this tough subject of losing their home. However, I have found that it is always better to sell your home rather than having a foreclosure on your credit report. And there are many things to consider in this process. For instance, if you owe more than the home is worth, the bank will potentially lower their payoff to enable you to sell the home. This is far easier (0 comments)
Price Ahead of the Market - 12/09/08 08:44 AM
In today's market agents have a responsibility to be up front to sellers about the reality of the market. There are a few steps when it comes to selling a house that you the seller should know. The first step is to obviously decide that you would like to sell the home. You will then call a Realtor to come to your home and speak with you. At this time the Realtor will be able to discuss the market conditions and what it takes to sell a home. This is a crucial step. It is really important that Realtors are up (0 comments)
1 in 10 American Households Behind on Mortgage Payments - 12/06/08 10:37 AM
I read in the news yesterday that 1 out of every 10 households in America are behind in their mortgage payments by at least 1 month. This in my opinion is outright scary. The Mortgage Bankers Association officiallyannounced this news about American households. They also say that the problem is stemming more and more as a result of people losing jobs and the bad economy. Before now the bulk of the blame went to the adjustable rate mortgages and sub-prime borrowers. Now, it seems as though the tough economy and job less is a major factor as well. Congress needs to (2 comments)
Is anyone suprised by the official announcement of recession? - 12/02/08 10:34 PM
It's official. The United States is officially in a recession. A recession occurs whenever the gross domestic product , the total output of goods and services, declines for two consecutive quarters. Is anyone really suprised? I have spoken with a few people since the official news broke. I keep getting the same response. Everyone knew it and they certainly feel it, but now it is official. Many economists agree including myself that to get out of this we need to get the financial and credit markets back to normal, and we need to continue to make progress in the housing market.
