Owning rental property may push you into the feeling that you must hire a CPA to do your taxes.  I personally like to work the numbers myself. I have found that Turbo Tax is a great way to take care of this tax business.  I made one change this year.  Instead of going to a software store, I signe...

It is Friday, time for a joke. A new prisoner entered the crowded jail cafeteria and sat down along with the other inmates waiting for lunch.  Across the room one of the inmates stood up and yelled, #45.  Everyone laughed.  A moment later a different inmate on the opposite side of the room stood ...
It is my opinion that you should have a plan and be open to changing it as facts present themselves.

  James makes a good point with his blog about saying thank you.  Make it a priority to thank those you come in contact with.   I recently received an unsolicited thank you from a happy client that made me feel very good.  In reflecting back on the exchange, I am much more moved by the fact it wa...
As of today, legislators have not moved this proposal, and it appears to be stalled as a result of the overwhelming opposition. The proposal provided that all business owners – including rental property owners and management companies - must hold three-percent of all payments owed to independent ...
Earlier this month I posed this question since at HomePointe we continue to use some newspaper ads, almost exclusively a full page ad in the Saturday Sacramento Bee Real Estate Section. The past two weekends we surveyed 64 rental prospects during weekend vacancy showings. This is what we came up ...
I found this story and thought it was interesting: An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had once failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama's socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would...
