vickie mccartney: Cash for Keys? Could somebody help, please? - 10/06/08 10:45 AM
 Since it is great to use real questions from real consumers or clients for ideas when we write our posts, I thought I would use an actual question I just received from a person seeking some answers in the Rain! Yes, consumers do read our posts AND our comments....   Here is proof below.....

"Hi,i just read a comment you responded to. Im not sure if you would know. My husband and I were offered the cash for keys program. We signed the paper with the agent on the agreed upon day we met with an assistant of the agent who had no check with her. She said the … (24 comments)

vickie mccartney: If states will soon be regulating WHO gets mail, where will it all end?? - 05/13/08 03:04 AM
Earlier I wrote about the Do Not Mail List possibly coming into effect, with some states pushing harder than others
This is how the Do Not Call List got started, it slowly but surely came into effect.  Yes, I did put my home phone and my cell phone on the Do Not Call List because the calls got out of hand and ridiculous. 
Yes, I do open my mail over the trash can and throw away all junk mail on the spot, but does that mean that I want it to become a law that only certain people can mail letters … (62 comments)

vickie mccartney: Earthquake felt in Owensboro,KY - 04/18/08 06:36 AM
  My husband and I were awakened early this am to some strange vibrations and noises.  I initially told him it was probably just the wind, and that I had the windows opened and it just might be extra windy outside.  He got up and looked around and said "you know it was probably from an earthquake."  I secretly thought to myself, oh ok whatever you say,( I just wanted to go back to sleep...)  and that he might be right, as I have never experienced one and I don't think he ever has either. 
Well, he left for work not long after … (10 comments)

vickie mccartney: BUYERS: get pre-qualified/qualified first.... - 04/02/08 07:27 AM
I have had many potential buyers ask me, "Why should I get qualified or pre-approved for a loan before I even find a home?"  They may further state, when I bought my first home, my agent "never even suggested that. She just took me in her car and we drove me all around and the when I found something I liked, I applied for my home loan."  Yes, I do ask certain pre-qualifying questions first. Depending on the answers, and the amount of house payment desired,  determines if I should show them homes right now.  For example,  If a buyer doesn't have any money, has a low credit … (5 comments)

Did you know that Owensboro, Kentucky is the home of the world's largest Sassafras Tree?  Well, it is.  This natural wonder is almost 300 years old and it measures over 100 feet tall with over 21 feet in circumference. It is one of the first things we came to find during our relocation and home search.
