Here's a few pics from a recent trip to Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Louisville, KY. A renowned ghost site...      I used a long exposure and no tripod. That's why they are blurry, but kinda ghostly... ;) The family that bought the building now sells guided night tours. This was a lot of fun becau...
"EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION" is in my hometown this week! Yesterday they announced which family was picked for the show: WATCH VIDEO I thought I'd check out the site firsthand.  I'm guessing that if you want to be picked for a home makeover then (besides being a deserving family) it really he...
THE QUOTE: "That's not to say there are not individual homes... "...that have been impacted by the presence of wind projects," Ryan Wiser said. MY ILLUSTRATION: MY COMMENTARY: I suppose that wind farms don't technically MAKE wind (so this is NOT meant to be a negative commentary). But if they did...

The trim was extremely chewed up, as well. I wish I didn't accidently delete the photos that showed a collection of dog hair matte...
I was encouraged today when I read about provisions being added to the bill passed this Wednesday by the U.S. House that will require states to deny a license (to sell home loans) for applicants who have committed a felony within the last seven years. This is especially reassuring after a Miami H...
Some of the government's new regulations seem bogus to me; just a band-aides to make themselves look good. For example, regulation against prepayment penalties. In the short term that might help some people sell a house in foreclosure. In the long term it forces lenders to use higher interest rat...
Before, I paid nearly $100.00 for access to The First American Corporation's data base of recently sold properties so that I could get an idea of what a property's value was. Of course, I am not a Realtor, so this information was not as readily available to me. Then came Zillow. This s...
FORECLOSURE DISCOUNTS: Even with the Feds trying to help homeowners 'keep their homes' (in other words, help banks 'save their shirts'), only a small percentage of people are qualifying for loan modifications. Then, after qualifying, only a small percentage are maintaining their new loan. As a re...
