 A few fun American Flag factsWe now refer to all American flags as Old Glory but did you know it was started with one specific flag? William Driver, a sea captain, nicknamed the flag on his ship “Old Glory” when he saw it flying on his ship’s mast in 1831. The name stuck till this day.In 1949, 17-year-old high school student, Robert G. Heft, of Lancaster, Ohio created an 50 star flag design for a class project.  Despite getting a B- he submitted the design in a contest in 1958. It was chosen out of over 1,500 submissions by President Dwight Eisenhower. The design has lasted for over 60 years.Do you remember the tv show Gilligan's Island? During the opening sequence of the first season of Gilligan's Island, the American flag is filmed at half-staff. This was done to honor President Kenn...

In response to Junes Active Rain challenge "Ole Glory coast to coast" I am posting a flag from a friends home we sold last year in Priest River Idaho.  Thank you Wendy and Adam, you are thought of often. The American Flag is not just a piece of fabric. It is symbolic of the fabric of our society as a nation. An emblem of the freedom we cherish and the pride we carry as a nation in our values and beliefs.  At the end of each is the ceremony of retreat, the daily observance in which military personnel pay respect to the flag, the flag is lowered, folded in a triangle fold and kept under watch throughout the night as a tribute to our nation's honored dead. Filled with tradition and meaning The flag is folded exactly 13 times in remembrance of the original 13 colonies.  The triangular shape...

If you live in a fairly small community and have been in the business for more than ten years, odds are you might have sold the same house more than once.I live in Boise, Idaho so the county has a population of about 500,000 people so that is a bit harder.  However, I am about to list one house that I have sold twice previously.  The first time was in 2009.  Ten years later, that buyer contacted me about selling it but she sold it to a house flipper "as is" after convincing her she would be saving a bunch of money selling without a Realtor.  (She actually way under sold it in her haste to just be done). That should have been sale #2 but it wasn't.After that investor fixed it up, I sold it again to a different buyer for sale #2.   Today, that buyer just got an offer accepted on their nex...

Did you know that the 30-year mortgage was authorized by Congress in 1948 for new construction homes.  Six years later, they allowed existing homes.  They haven't changed the term for 68 years!Now think about car loans.  Due to rising prices of cars, lenders have continuously extended the term on car loans to try to make the monthly payments affordable. They went from 2 year terms, to 3.  In the 1980's, they stretched to 4, then five and then six year terms.  I was shocked to learn some automobile loans are now based on 8 year terms!  Automobiles are a depreciating asset and yet banks and financial institutions have extended the term on them to help keep them "affordable".Now, let's get back to real estate.  In Boise, Idaho (one of the hottest real estate markets in the nation), the cur...
