     Port Charlotte reale state services written by Joe Kendall Broker Associate  with Sandals Realty.I remember when I was working as a Realtor at Apple Mountain Gmac Real estate located in Saginaw Michigan in the late 90's and we did a lot of General Motors relocation in and out of the Mid Michigan Area.  I have been spending some time lately watching and followings the General Motors Bankruptcy and watching to see how all this will shake out.

PORT CHARLOTTE -- On Sunday, Meikah Heaton will be 6 months old. That she'll reach this milestone on Mother's Day is a special blessing for her mom, 18-year-old Michaela Morse. For her first Mother's Day, this young local mom has only one wish: "(For) my daughter to get better." But for that wish to come true, she's going to need a lot of help. And time is running out. Little Meikah suffers from biliary atresia, a congenital disorder affecting her bile duct, liver and small intestine, according to the infant's pediatrician, Dr. Ben Helgemo, of Helgemo & Liou Pediatrics in Port Charlotte. Her liver is failing and the persistent threat of infection means her life is at risk every day, Helgemo said. Without a liver transplant, he said it's doubtful Meikah will survive very long. According...

We place special emphasis on the HUD foreclosure market. Since HUD Homes are available for as little as $100 down they are one of the easier ways to get into the market with no down payment. They also present some of the best deals available. HUD Homes in Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, North & South Carolina can be had at huge discounts. Purchasing a HUD home is a little different than purchasing a traditional foreclosure. That is why is is important you get a good knowledgeable HUD Realtor to help you out. How is it different?

HUDHUD's system, and what you should bid, is based a formula derived from days on market and number of times the price has dropped. A good HUD Realtor can usually get you wi...

Myth #4 Negative Items Must Remain For 7 Years...That's sheer and utter balderdash. Even so, consumers hear it every day when they telephone creditors directly: "Sorry, by law that has to remain on your report for seven years." The next time you hear that, know this: The automaton posing as a customer service representative is either spreading lies or ignorance, neither of which is good for your fiscal or mental health.Sure, creditors want consumers to believe the lie because they can charge higher rates of interest to those who have nasties on their credit reports. As far as they are concerned, the longer the stuff remains on consumer credit reports collectively, the larger their profits. The truth, though, is that nobody is required to report anything about any of us for any minimum l...

So much so that it has even caught the eye of offline news mediums such as USA Today, CNN, and ABC. This helps to make the application popular all on its own.Twitter, twitter, twitter...Everyone is asking What is Twitter? How do you use it?

 Marketing Tip:   The micro-blogging social media phenomenon called Twitter is raising cash via one or more venture capital firms that places the company's value at $250 million. According to TechCrunch "sources," Twitter execs have been trying to get such a valuation with hit or miss interest, by pointing to its almost-merger with Facebook, which was going to pay $500 million for it. But while the site already is venture capital-based, it has had the industry scratching its head in terms of how to monetize it, since advertising models don't readily apply themselves to the service. That said, ComScore says Twitter's traffic flow increased five times, to 5.57 million, year over year as of September. Review:Twitter has add substantial traffic to my websites. If you are online and interest...

The automatic Autoresponder has been getting a bad reputation for quite some time. It is lumped in with bad practices like spam and cold calling, but it really doesn't have to be. The problem is that many autoresponders have been abused.  Unscrupulous internet marketers have gathered valuable e-mails, names, and phone numbers using free courses as bait, only to later sell that information to people who would flood your e-mail with unwanted offers. This was never the intent of the autoresponder and it doesn't have to be this way. You see, most of the advice on using autoresponders has been to manipulate people instead of helping them to learn. Use Autoresponders to Help People Learn   Autoresponders can actually be quite helpful when used with good intentions. For those that have abused ...

The 100-word statements can only harm the consumer. First, as we've discussed, such personal statements are essentially never read by potential creditors anyway since the credit score is the usual qualifying determinant. Second, those statements only make it more difficult to embark upon a credit repair effort later because they serve to confirm what's already there. So, for example, let's say a consumer attaches a statement that reads something like this: "These late payments were made only because I was suddenly laid off (or sick), but that unfortunate situation changed very quickly, and we have never been late with this or any other account since."   That may sound responsible, but unfortunately it says only this in reality: "NOTE: yes I really was late paying these accounts. Plus I'...
