A family on my street sold their home privately last month and followed up with an offer on a resale home in another area of town. Both transactions set to take place on the same day as is typical in this scenario. The husband, a nice enough guy, asked me to list their current home in March and at the last minute he decided to list privately and coincidentally at the very price I suggested their home should list at during my spring meeting with them. The husband approached me while I was washing the car on Sunday morning. He (57 comments)
People move about every five to seven years on average. A phenomena that is increasing and foreign to our parents generation but their day to sell and move will come as well. Here are the top reasons why people sell.: 1) Home is too small. First-time home buyers often outgrow their "starter" homes. Increased family size is the main reason home owners say they need a larger home. 2) Upgrade. The grass is greener on the other side. People often want what they don't have and long for a bigger, more expensive and grander, upscale home. It's the American way. 3) Fix purchase error. Owners might believe they made (2 comments)

Great expectations A guide to buying your first home BY DAWN KLINGENSMITH, CTW FEATURESAPRIL 28, 2010 If you do not own a home, you might as well buy one because you're already contributing to a mortgage -- your landlord's.

Give me the hum of a windmill in my back yard any day over 200 plus barrels of oil per hour spewing into our oceans. Convenience on this orb needs an across the board reevaluation.

I have lived near such technology and yes late on a windy night there was a low level hum much the same as the one I hear under the same conditions now living within a mile of a 1500 foot broadcast tower. If there is a car passing by or the tv (7 comments)
