No, this was not the parting sentiment from seller to buyer at a happy closing. It was wistfully painted above the front door, surrounded by an artistic vine of leaves and flowers, of a bank-owned property I showed to some first-time buyers. We didn't notice it until we were leaving, where it sto...

My husband got a new fancy Timex running "watch" for Christmas, complete with heart rate monitor, GPS, and about a million other things he hasn't figured out yet. His initial take was that it didn't work properly. Couldn't figure out how to make it do what he wanted. Probably broken. Did he read ...

The HOA is foreclosing? You're Kidding, Right?? Why would they do that? Foreclosures by home owners' associations (HOAs) in Northern Nevada are becoming an increasingly common phenomenon.

Kindergarten...the first major turning point in life, or at least in our socialization as human beings living in a society.

Just had to share this newsclip...brought a smile to my face. The story begins with a foreclosure filing by Bank of America against a Florida homeowner. Hardly newsworthy, I know. Unfortunately for BofA, the homeowner in question did not have a mortgage with BofA...in fact they didn't have a mort...

Who was it that decided that robins are the harbinger of spring? Don't know about other parts of the planet, but here in Reno, Nevada we have robins pretty much all the time.
