 My 5  P.M.  appointment was an Exotic Septuagenarian, and did she ever take me for a ride.     My recent 5 PM appointment was a brief break from real estate as the Collings Foundation stopped off at the Purdue University Airport in West Lafayette, Indiana to give the community a chance to view and even ride some living history from World War II:  three bombers and perhaps the most beautiful fighter plane ever built. My 5 pm appointment was a ride in the B-25 Mitchell medium bomber best known for its desperate and one way mission in April 1942 in the famous Doolittle Raid over Tokyo.The raid did little damage but it was a huge moral builder during a desperate time when Japan was unstoppable in its Pacific conquests.   The B-25 bombers and their crews accomplished more than they would ev...

Ringing and Singing in the Rain - Bruce Walter This week for the second time I got the pleasure to speak to another ActiveRain member being Bruce Walter.

 Does your Lafayette, Indiana lender answer their phone after 5 PM, or on weekends? In the fast paced world of real estate how many times do real estate agents need a lender to adjust the price down on a pre-qualification letter for their buyer as they are writing an offer at 9 PM at night so their buyer is not put at a disadvantage?Most of the national banks and many of our Lafayette brick and mortar lenders DO NOT, and the letter may state in indelible ink they are preapporved up to $200,000 even though your buyer is offering $180,000 on a home listed at $184,900.   Hmmmm, I wonder what that seller is going to think when they see that set in stone, pre-qualification letter for $200,000 from the inflexible and unavailable lenders who do business that way??? WANTED:  LAFAYETTE Lender wh...
