real estate: A Formal Introduction Compared to "Here Take a Look" - 02/20/12 02:55 AM

real estate: Be Cautious with Home Insurance Claims - 06/18/09 07:13 AM
When obtaining a home loan, most lenders require homeowners to purchase and maintain homeowner's insurance for the term of the loan. However, some homeowners are being denied insurance or faced with steep increases in premiums, because the home has had a history of claims or the homeowner has filed excessive claims in the past. Many homeowners are unaware that filing a claim on their homeowner's insurance policy can hurt their chances of getting coverage or make it difficult to sell their home.

real estate: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle! - 05/26/09 05:11 AM
Recycling turns materials that would otherwise become waste into valuable resources.
In addition, it generates a host of environmental, financial, and social benefits. Materials like glass, metal, plastics, and paper are collected, separated and sent to facilities that can process them into new materials or products. Make recycling part of your everyday routine and help save our valuable resources for future generations too.
Recycling Tips for Every Day
1. buy plain white paper, tissues and paper towels. Dyed paper pollutes.
2. instead of ammonia-based cleaners use vinegar and water or baking soda and water
3. walk or ride a bike instead … (0 comments)

real estate: 9 Ways to Build Credit from Scratch - 02/20/09 07:41 AM
It's much easier to start with good habits than to repair black marks later on
Establishing a good credit history has never been as important as it is today.  It's not just that you'll need good credit to get decent rates when you're ready to buy a home or car. Your credit history can determine whether you get a good job, a decent apartment, a deal on your cell phones and reasonable rates on insurance. One seemingly minor misstep - a late payment, maxing out your credit cards - can haunt you for years.
1. Check your credit report - you'll … (0 comments)
