dennis burgess: Pedestrian Tales From the Middle of the Road, #59 - 04/13/14 08:33 AM
Pedestrian Tales From the Middle of the Road, #59

Pedestrian Tales From the Middle of the Road, #59
 
There's been another uptick in pedestrian deaths in our area recently- no doubt owing in part to the Orlando Police Department and others' refusal to enforce our pedestrian traffic laws.
Simply put, a median strip is not a sidewalk- and when missed opportunities for enforcement (and possibly for saving lives) like the one pictured above abound, there's plenty of blame to spread around when the next pedestrian dies.
To be sure, I am a "personal responsibility" guy- and I believe the … (0 comments)

dennis burgess: The worst question a prospect can ask… - 04/07/14 11:00 AM
The worst question a prospect can ask…

The worst question a prospect can ask…
 
There are a world of questions tenant prospects might ask while viewing rental properties.  Some are great ones, some are silly ones- and yes, some are stupid ones.  A few of ‘em can actually start out as good ones, yet turn into stupid ones: if you have a place on the market at $1,795/mo, for instance, and one’s “Will the owner take…” question ends with “$1,295?”.
 
For the most part, though, prospects’ questions are germane to their anticipated rental of a particular property.  One … (2 comments)

Thanks for calling- now stop it!

Thanks for calling- now stop it!
 
Like many of you, I've been on the road a lot lately.  Business is booming- and as the old idiom goes, we have to make hay while the sun shines.
 
I'd figure many of you also have a thing called a cell phone tethered to you in some sort of manner, too.  Those things play the part of both blessing and curse in our daily lives- as there are times when one's life literally depends on having one of the dang things, but more often than … (0 comments)

How to spot a craiglist scam

How to spot a craiglist scam
 
It's that time again.  Yes, the real estate/rentals busy season is upon us- which also heralds an increase in the number of craigslist scams that one might stumble across while searching for a new place to call home.
 
While there's no sure-fire way to guard against every craigslist scam/scammer (those guys are pretty dang crafty, you know), there are some common threads shared by many of the scams and the shysters who look to use them to take advantage of the unsuspecting and unwary among us:

dennis burgess: Your price is too dang high! - 03/21/14 06:46 AM
Your price is too dang high!

Your price is too dang high!
 
Pricing a property correctly is very important- for a few reasons:
 
1. Credibility with your client/owner.  If a property is initially priced too high, an owner loses money as it sits vacant and others nearby that are priced correctly are rented out ahead of it.  Initially pricing a property too low, however, will lead to an incredible amount of interest and a quick rental- but you’ll be doing a great disservice to an owner who is able to withstand a bit of vacancy time while netting … (0 comments)

Student debt may hurt housing recovery...

Student debt may hurt housing recovery...
 
http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/student-debt-may-hurt-housing-recovery-by-hampering-first-time-buyers
 
My initial reaction to this story was but a simple "Yep".  I mean, I don't necessarily see anything profound or earth-shattering about news that student loan debt might hurt those bearing said debt- or any other debt for that matter.  Money going out the door towards anything inherently leaves less money to pay for other wants, needs and/or responsibilities.
 
A bit more thought got me riled up a bit, in that I really don't care for where this story in particular and the student … (16 comments)

Now, what was your name again?

Now, what was your name again?
 
Well, it's confessional time, of sorts- or the closest my Baptist self will come to it, I suppose:  I am bad at remembering names... scratch that- I am really, really bad at remembering names.
 
I've heard it said that 80% of the times one is handed a pen to try out, they'll write their name.  No hard evidence to support that that I've seen, mind you (and I might argue that drawing a bunch of squiggly lines is near the top of the list, too), but … (8 comments)
