Friday morning, and my cell phone rings just as I am getting ready to take my son to school.  Nothing unusual there...  But, it was the caller and the subject that I wasn't really expecting.  The caller was a reporter from the AJC (Atlanta Journal Constitution) that I have talked with previously....

Those are words I hear from my son on an almost daily basis.  He breaks stuff.  He isn't doing it on purpose, but he is also just 4 years old, and he doesn't know how to take care of his stuff as much as he should. Honestly, most of the time... I can fix it.  I have soldered, welded, glued and sn...

This is one that really chaps my hide.  I understand it from the consumer perspective, but at the same time, it is still a giant misconception. As a consumer, it is always a good idea to talk with a couple of agents before selecting the one to list with.  But the purpose of the talk isn't to see ...

All I have heard after the swearing in ceremony of Almighty O was he is not the President because the Oath of Office was done incorrectly.  Oh, please give me a break. Alright, enough is enough.  Last night Obama took the Oath of Office again and this time Justice Roberts got it right. Yes, Rober...

I have hear and read a lot about term limits over the years.  I have always supported term limits for all types of elected positions.  One of the key problems with professional politicians is they have lost touch with their constituents because the only world they know is the political world and ...

Why is Competition bad?           Here is a thought: The basic problem with our educational system in this country is there is no competition in our government schools.  As adults we choose what grocery store, what gas station, or department store we are going to spend our money.  This choice is ...

These kind of stray away from blanket misconceptions and are more opinion... based, I feel, in observed circumstance...  It is also a two-fer.  One for sellers and one for buyers. First, for the sellers... There is a tendency among sellers to want to "price in a little negotiation room."  But the...

A growing trend with experienced home buyers is one I highly recommend for the first time home buyer. Pick our home inspector as early as possible.  While you are picking your real estate agent also be looking for your home inspector.  By not waiting till after you pick the home you want to buy, ...

How Creditors Can Get Around the Automatic Stay Usually, a creditor can get around the automatic stay by asking the bankruptcy court to remove ("lift") the stay, if it is not serving its intended purpose. For example, say you file for bankruptcy the day before your house is to be sold in foreclos...

Oh, sorry the title should read 600,000 new government jobs.  600,000 new government jobs all part of Obama's so-called stimulus package.  600.000 government jobs are going to appear from where?  The real question is do Americans understand what a government jobs is?  Are government jobs self-sus...

I run across this a lot.  I am NOT a super lister, listing every house I can for sale.  I just want to make sure that you know that up front.  In fact, I don't list every house I can.  I turn down listings.  And what I am about the say is going to make some agents unhappy... Listing too many prop...

Continuing on my series of common misconceptions of, about and regarding real estate and the real estate industry, let's talk about real estate agents... I hear this one a LOT.  It is a common misconception that all real estate agents are effectively the same.  And it couldn't be further from the...

Many agents and sellers think that one of the ways to create interest is to give the listing an "air of mystery" by tightly controlling how much info they release... thinking less is better. Let me tell you... that isn't a good idea, unless there is a VERY small group of inventory.  Like "potenti...

House bill H.R. 7309  that Rep. Gohmert has introduced would suspend all federal income tax on wages earned and FICA withholding for 2 straight months. This tax holiday would be a direct stimulus to the economy by allowing workers and families to decide how to spend or save their money, instead o...

(On LilburnDwellings.com, I have just started a series about the top ten misconceptions buyers and sellers have about home values.  This is part of that series.)

You may remember that I took a tour through the local MLS to look at recent Lilburn listings to see how many had pictures and virtual tours.  The post was called Survey of New Listings.  I was actually kind of shocked at how few agents were taking advantage of the FREE opportunity to post picture...

It is that time again... I gave FMLS a couple of days to see if there were any fast revisions on the sales data (there was) and now I ready to let fly with the market report covering the preliminary numbers from December and the (probably) final numbers for November. Gwinnett County Real Estate M...

There are several things I believe all citizens should do if they are able.  1) Vote, 2) Watch government, and 3) Give blood. I have given blood every 3 months since I was 18 years old with breaks in giving only due to different Army overseas deployments here and there.  My father is the one who ...

 On February the 17th the nation is converting to digital television (DTV) and for most of us our lives will not change one bit.  But, for millions of Americans who were a sleep at the wheel it will be National Read a Book Day. The big " Why" question most people are asking is: Why do we need to ...
