Buying real estate is similar to having a baby. You tend to forget how painful it can be because the rewards are so great. If you could remember, you might not want to do it again. In my opinion, selling is much easier than buying but it can also be stressful.One of the ways that I help my seller...

There were shortages at U C Davis a few months back, and probably everywhere, for the new pneumonia vaccine. Still can't even get the updated shingles vaccine; maybe next month, I hear. When I googled places to get vaccines in Kona, I was surprised to learn that Wal Mart and Safeway both offer th...

Nobody is really immune from normal human emotions. I don't care who you are or how insulated you might think you are. Once you are emotionally invested in a situation -- and notice I say situation, not property, even though it may be property-related -- those emotions can conflict with normal co...

One of the things about remodeling a house is realizing contractors are limited by their experiences. They don't know everything. Especially general contractors.

I am fond of saying that I could buy my own island in French Polynesia if I had received every offer that buyer's agents said they were sending over the past 40 years. Because it is true. I find buyer's agents are often FAR more excited about the prospects of a house than their buyers are. They t...

We priced this home to sell for the condition it is in and for the amount of work a buyer will need to do. Many agents said they felt it showed better than they thought it would, especially since it needs new flooring throughout and paint. When you look at the enormous size of this home, though, ...

As a general rule for a person like me, I do not wholeheartedly endorse gluten-free foods because it annoys me.
