FRAUD ALERT - The Summit County Consumer Affairs Office sent out the following fraud alert: There is a deceptive website posing as HUD. This website is deliberately deceiving by public by using the HUD name in the web address as well as on the website. The website tries to dupe people into giving out personal information (known as "phishing") - and because they've made their site appear to be an "official U.S. Government website", some people may fall prey to this scam. The website is: http://bailout.hud-gov.us/ (1 comments)

A Faster Way to Search for a Home in Stow, Hudson, Cuyahoga Falls or Tallmadge Ohio - 03/12/09 10:17 AM
I recently talked with a buyer who set up a search on realtor.com to receive emails on new listings. Her complaint was that sometimes the properties that she received emails on were already sold. I ask her for her email and signed her up to receive emails from me. I have access to our local MLS service and now she gets emails on new listings as soon as they are entered into the computer. We have looked at several properties together. She is looking for a great deal on a property so sometimes those properties go quickly. Email me, text me (0 comments)

Realtor Turned Seller - 03/06/09 11:04 AM
The shoe is on the other foot. I have put my condo up for sale and now I am the seller. I get up every morning and pick up everything before I leave for work. I clean up the kitchen and bathrooms and wipe down the counters and faucets so they gleam. I make sure the throw blankets are picked up and folded, make sure the beds are made and smoothed just so and make sure all the mini blinds are opened. I have my flameless candle sitting out and I am ready for a showing. I have the same frustrations (1 comments)
