selling a home: Cost Savings Ideas for Money Strapped Homeowners - 12/05/08 08:43 PM
Most everyone is feeling the pinch this year.  The economy is in a recession.  Most of us on Mainstreet realized this awhile ago.  It didn't take someone to put it in print this week for the average American to know it.
Times are tougher than they've been in some time.  Many of the people I know are earning the same or less income than 10 years ago.
What happened?  Middle management positions were eliminated.  Factories and productions lines were moved to southern states or overseas.
Costs keep going up.  We may be making less money, but bills have gone up!

selling a home: Fall Checklist for a Warmer and Safer home - 11/30/08 03:03 AM
It's the cool time of year once again.  As we await a winter weather storm - the biggest of our Fall season I began thinking of all the things I could do to keep my home warm - warmer this winter.
With the ever rising cost of Gas and Electricity I would like to use less - yet be WARM!!
Many of my neighbors use a wood burner in their fireplace to help heat their homes.  I have chosen to not do that due to the fact that I have asthma.  The WORST thing for my breathing (and for anyone with … (10 comments)

selling a home: Market Report Germantown Condos Wisconsin ending October 31, 2008 - 11/28/08 07:57 AM
The GOOD NEWS IS:  Germantown has experienced increasing sales for 4 out of the last 6 months.  The numbers for September and October were slightly below the 2007 sold numbers.
October Sales in 2008 were 5.  This was a slow month.  The election may have had this effect.  The stock market tanking may also have had a little to do with it.
New listings in the last 3 months were down form last year.  Since January we have seen 18.5% fewer homes coming on the market than 2007.
This indicates the market is getting better, with fewer homes in inventory and a little quicker sales … (0 comments)

selling a home: Well it can be done! Foreclosure gets an accepted offer!! One very happy buyer! - 11/14/08 03:43 AM
Foreclosures and Short Sales.  These have been the bulk of my business this year.  Many people in troubled waters...
I met a buyer 2 weeks ago.  We looked at several condos and he decided to write on a foreclosure property. 
We submitted an offer to the listing side with a great deal of information to give to the bank.
I drafted a cover letter with the reasons the buyer was writing an offer at the price shown.
In the details I explained that although the price had been reduced to well below any recent sales, that is a state of … (6 comments)

selling a home: What could $44.44 possibly be? - 10/25/08 09:24 AM
Well, I took it as a sign.  A sign of good luck.  Must make the best of the good luck....
I stopped for gas the other night.  On empty again, but at least the price has dropped below $3.00 a gallon.  I think it was $2.79.... Anyway - An empty tank and the pump  stops at $44.44.
A far cry from the high of $68 something to fill up....
SOOOOO - I decide to stop inside the station and drop off some Green Bay Packers game Schedules.  I know the attendant, he even waived hello as I was filling up.
So inside … (26 comments)
