It's time to winterize in the South so I sent the plumber to one of our REO's  and warned him that it probably wouldn't be a difficult job because the house had no water heater.  (He'd already finished a NICE REO that had the water heater above the garage so he said it was a good thing I winteriz...
 I have a listing with 3 acres.  It has always been so hard to pinpoint corners and see what the overall view is like.  With Google Earth on your computer you type in the address and you are zoomed right into the area.  You can tell where the trees are, what is pasture, and the location of the bu...
Too often one of our listed clients will call and say that the agent who made an appointment to show the house didn't show up.  I always tell my listed clients to turn every light in the house on, open the blinds, leave and the person showing should turn off the lights.I've had it happen to me.  ...

We who do REOs never know what we're going to get into when we go through the front door.  That is if there is a front door.  Sometimes the doors are gone!  I learned many many years ago to be suspicious of what may jump on your legs as you step into the house.  Fleas may be starving for a new pe...
We know that yesterday was Black Friday and people were in lines before 4:00 a.m.  I can't imagine wanting anything personally bad enough to go that early to a store.  The lines must be sorta like those big tailgate parties that they have on the parking lots before football games.  I avoid those ...
Today is the day to stuff yourself with turkey, dressing, giblet gravy, green bean casserole, hot rolls, etc.  I have been there and done that.  I even cooked the turkey and dressing and giblet gravy and I really don't like that highly advertised green bean/onion ring casserole.But for some reaso...
Sitting at the bank yesterday in the little drive-through lanes, I was looking at the SUV beside me.  I thought the vehicle looked familiar and that I might know the person in it.  But to save me, I couldn't see who it was.  The windows were so dark I couldn't tell who the driver was.  I couldn't...
