Each year I look forward to the new MS 411 issue coming out. Its packed with great information and gives REALTORS another opportunity to advertise. (I hand out a useful magazine promoting my competitors). Frankly, I get a little irked when I pay into an association that works against me. See page...
I arrrived at the "property in transaction" at 8:25 this morning. The plumbers are here already. They found the underground leak right off. So, I am "hangin" for the septic cleaners/inspectors. Of course my wish is for positive results. If not, I hope the repairs that may be needed will be manage...
Okay Mississippi lenders--I hear one thing, then I hear something entirely different. I hear that it is still possible to get FHA w/rehab like or similar to 203K. Then I hear from a bank that no bank would touch a property if it has certain issues. Which is it? Must you pay cash to buy a fixer up...
What am I thinking about late Saturday night? Toilets. A seller just had a new well pump/motor thingie installed. She lives out of state, so I was there to test before the well guys left.

Fortunately, the owners understo...

Then, similar to preachers who start out with one sermon and then end up preaching a...
Today is an Active Rain right of passage for me. I remember in the beginning, looking at the Active Rain Celebrities and thinking, first of all--I would never get there. Well, I am not a celebrity, still starting from 0, 85K is not bad. Many others have started later than me and progressed farthe...
I was reading this blog this morning (Check it out to understand my train of thought) . Then because of my recent concern regarding a localism post, I wondered...If a subject is considered "Tabu" at work--should it be considered "Tabu" if you are blogging in a work capacity? Should you discuss wi...
