It’s Time to Take Another Look at Short Sales They're Not What They Used to Be! - 09/29/11 01:14 AM
As recently as a few months ago, if you would have told a real estate agent who specialized in short sales that they’d be raving about a lender’s stellar service and rapid approval times—not to mention significant cash incentives for financially strapped homeowners for pursuing a short sale—you’d have gotten some strange looks. That’s all changed. And it’s changed faster and to a greater extent than most real estate professionals ever could have imagined. With a glut of bank-owned properties dragging down the recovery of the real estate market, as well as the national economy, major lenders are more eager than (3 comments)

Broward statistics reveal an over 47.5% drop in the number of foreclosures in the south Florida between Sept 2010 and Sept 2011. Miami, Broward and Palm Beach counties have all seen a decrease in the number of foreclosure sales in the past year. However, the number of delenquecies are on the rise. Don't let'em fool ya...the decrease of foreclosure are a result of the robo signing scandal and new foreclosure laws, not an actual decrease. The foreclosure rates in south Florida are expected to rise in early 2012. If you or someone you know is having trouble keeping up with (0 comments)
The real joy of life is in its play. Play is anything we do for the joy and love of doing it, apart from any profit, compulsion, or sense of duty. It is the real living joy of life. It is so easy to let ourselves get caught up with work and routine, that we forget to experience a daily dose of joy. I confess, I am guilty of depriving myself of joy. I ask, how joyful are you? Are you getting you fair share?

Pembroke Pines Short Sale Expert Advice: Short Sale Explained [Video] - 09/06/11 12:42 AM
A short sale can be an excellent solution for homeowners who need to sell, and who owe more on their homes than they are worth. In the past, it was rare for a bank or lender to accept a short sale. Today, however, due to overwhelming market changes, banks and lenders have become much more negotiable when it comes to these transactions. Recent changes in corporate policy and the Obama administration have also improved the chances of getting a short sale approved.
This seems simple enough, but it is a complicated process that takes the expertise of experienced professionals. (0 comments)

On Oct 31, 2008, I attended an event that changed my beliefs my health, and my life. When I walked through those doors I never imagined how this event would restructure my entire life, but it did. Let me explain, back then I had been smoking for 26 years. I smoked every single day, I even smoked through my entire pregnancy. Through the years, I tried every stop smoking method there was in efforts of kicking the habit. I did hypnosis, nicotine patches, nicotine gum, needles behind my ears...I tried it all without success. I wanted to stop smoking, the thought (1 comments)
