Yesterday I wrote a blog called, "Home Ownership Is Too Important To Do Nothing" where I outlined some of my thoughts on the current housing and mortgage banking mess.  Today I'd like to expand on why I feel that those who say that we should simply wait for the markets to correct themselves are, ...
Much has been written about who should bear the blame for the current real estate and mortgage crises.  Some have levied blame at the borrowers while others have levied blame at unscrupulous mortgage brokers.I  for one have levied most of the blame on the big Wall Street Investment houses that bu...
I'll be honest, I love blogging.  It's fun, it has SEO advantages and it gives me a forum to get stuff off of my chest.  The one thing that it doesn't do for me (yet) is get my message out to a bunch of people.  If my web site is the equivalent to having a bill board in the middle of a corn field...
A few days ago I wrote a post where I asked if people thought that the media plays a story straight.  The over whelming response was, "No, the media does not play it straight with the public."Frankly, I wasn't surprised.  I had seen a perfect example of how the media plays things when my father p...

Hello again from the world of drywall dust and busted knuckles!  As many of you probably know, I've been rehabbing a home that my girlfriend Kathy and I recently moved into.  On top of attempting to keep my business moving forward and getting all of our various projects completed we suffered abou...
