Spring time for many is an enjoyable time as temperatures warm and flowers emerge and new life is all around, but for many it can be painful and frustrating. If you live in any area were snow melts, there is heavy rain at times, or you have a basement; now is the time to protect yourself.  This i...
The final result happened.  And it is what I thought would happen...... So the buyer was supposed to get back to me in the morning if $201K was good.  He did not and after several phone messages he finally got back to me at 4pm that day.  Now the problem was the home was having a second showing a...
I am recently working with a new client who is new to the housing market.  We got together and talked about what is important to him and I began looking what was out there.  Suddenly I remembered a home that had been recently remodeled with almost everything new, exactly what he was looking for. ...
This is a great 1951 3 bedroom 1 bath 1 1/2 story home in Highland Park.  Nice hardwood floors and great potential for an master bedroom upstairs and room to finish in the clean basement.  The house has a newer furnace, AC, Hot Water Heater, and Fridge in the past few years.  This home also has ...
So I just finished day 4 of my 90 day P90X challenge.  I'm sure many of you have seen the infomercials with Tony Horton for P90x.  A good friend of mine had the DVD set and I've been wanting to try it but just never got around to actually doing it.  Well I've finally decided to do it and also hav...

I've recieved the lastest interest rate round up from my lender.  Interest rates are awesome...Enough said! Plus there is the anticipated $8000 first time home buyer credit.  Drum up some business, shoot a mass email out to all your buyers and educate them on the interest rates.  Tell them what a...
The current interest rates are great!  I don't know why so many are complaining?  Ok, so yes we got a little spoiled back in 2003, but really those rates were for mostly 3-1,5-1 ARMs.  Any thing in the 5's heck in the 4's sometimes are awesome!  Right now were are sitting at interest rates of ab...
Today the highly anticipated $15000 tax credit for home buyers that was supposed to be included in the Stimulus Package, but was voted out.  I for one am happy to hear this!  I know many wrote letters and emails to get this passed.  This was supposed to be the "boost" to a sluggish housing econom...
I went to the movies last week with my wife and saw Grand Turino.  I have to say it was a good movie!  You have to accept the plentiful amount of racial slurs, but there is a great point to the movie.  Get to know your neighbors, it can be extremely helpful. The movie shows what can rapidly happe...
