One of the things I love about working with home buyers in Evansville and Henderson, is seeing their dreams come true.

Never mind what those TV get-rich-quick infomercials would have us believe: building long-term wealth requires focus and patience. Patience, because a steady growth is a more reliable strategy than flashier single investment ‘wins’ — and focus, because opportunities slip past when daily demands ...

Some summarize points of view that are available elsewhere; some provide original information that isn’t particularly relevant to our local market. One piece that gets more t...

Suppose you are driving past one of those ‘For Sale by Owner’ yard signs…and the house looks good!  Do you screech to a halt, jump out and rush up to the front door to – quick! – sign a deal?
