The Power of Thanks - 12/30/09 06:50 PM
The Power of Thanks This is the slogan for Penn Street Bakery, World Famous Cakes & Gifts. I started giving these cakes for closing gifts a few years ago. I usually gave a gift card, but wanted something a little more personal. You can order a delicious cake in a "Thank You" tin or you can order a tin with your company logo. I usually order the chocolate cake or lava cakes, who doesn't like chocolate? The best thing is the price, approximately $24.95 plus shipping for one cake! Other flavors are Georgia Peach, Cherry Almond, Cinnamon Pecan and many more. (4 comments)

Looking forward to Short Sale timelines! - 12/17/09 10:18 AM
I have been working on several short sales since August of this year. Both homes have had several offers and both had two buyers that waited for the lender decision on whether or not their offers were accepted. I was so excited that some buyers actually waited! Well, so much for enthusiam! One buyer ,after waiting for months decided she did not have the right "feel" for this home and opted out. The inspection wasn't bad she just didn't feel it. That is her right I guess. The second buyer waited and extended the short sale option. She had an inspection (5 comments)

What I found on a Walk-Through One of our tenants decided to renew his lease and we scheduled a walk through the following week. I arrive at the property and the outside looks great. I proceed inside and the wood floors look fantastic! Not a scratch in site and the kitchen chairs had the little footies on them to prevent scratching while dining. Great!

The Effects of Foreclosure on Everyone - 12/07/09 01:46 PM
The Effects of Foreclosure on Everyone Foreclosures are often expressed in popular media as occurring in "waves," e.g.,the foreclosure wave due to the reset of option adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) interest rates , the foreclosure wave due to increases in unemployment.
