martin county: Local, State or National? Where in the World are you Waldo? - 06/09/11 10:46 AM
Local, State or National?  Where in the world are you Waldo?
Admittedly, the month of May was one of the worst I've experienced in a while. Between juggling real estate transactions, supporting my local Associations, Community involvement, economic survival, and if that wasn't enough, being caught off guard by a negative test result addressing a health issue needing immediate attention, this all JUST STOPPED ME IN MY TRACKS.  Honestly, my plate and my mind were full. I'm sure you have experienced this at some point.  So if you are not feeling sympathetic or I'm boring you to tears, then thanks for stopping by, move on.  But then … (10 comments)

MARS the Red Planet of Short Sales
I'm sure over the past few weeks there have been numerous blogs & interpretations written regarding the new rules issued by the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) that may impact the Real Estate practitioners who represent clients in short sales or advertise their experience in dealing with short sales.  I for one just completed a difficult short sale from hell.  Everything that you possibly could imagine going wrong - guess what - it did!  I literally "lived" and "breathed" that one for almost a year. I'm sure short sales take up a lot of time for everyone, so my … (2 comments)

Snowbirds - Is it Seasonal Human Migration?
Did you know that some researchers suggest that "snowbirds" who travel to warmer climates during the winter, display patterns of seasonal human migration?  This practice can be traced back to colonial times, when "Bostonians" would travel by sea to South Caroline, Georgia and Florida.
The word "Snowbird" offers many definitions.  For instance, Snowbird is a Ski Resort in Canyon, Utah.  It can be associated with travelers visiting from the north to soak up the sun in the south.  Full time residents often view snowbirds as an annoyance because they're perceived as driving like maniacs … (5 comments)
