cheap: Snow Birds or Sun Birds Welcome - 01/11/12 12:40 AM
Ever wish you could just sneak out of town when the weather is terrible?  I have found a place in South America where the highes are around 70 degrees  and the lows are around 50 degrees year round.  The best fruit, flowers, and trees you could ever find.  Beautiful scenary.  Located in a town of 300,000 with art, museums,  theatre, and music.  People are so friendly.  They use American dollars as their currency.  A maid costs $150 per month.  A pretty apartment costs $200 to $300 per month. 
Think you might want to retire?  Even better!  Lots of benefits for Seniors.

This program works for new construction, existing homes, and even manufactured housing (if it qualifies).  So if … (0 comments)

cheap: Single Property Websites For FSBOs - 08/19/11 07:02 AM
We have found that the vast majority of home buyers go first to the Internet.  Even loyal clients of real estate agents go there first to find out about the price and availability of homes.  So if you are not on the Internet, you should be.  For Sale By Owners find themselves at a disadvantage since they can not easily make a web page with only their home on it.  Sites with lots of other homes requires that someone look through many other choices before they decide on yours. 
Anyone who wants to have a website in the Mobile County area, … (0 comments)
