I have had many potential buyers ask me, "Why should I get qualified or pre-approved for a loan before I even find a home?"  They may further state, when I bought my first home, my agent "never even suggested that. She just took me in her car and we drove me all around and the when I found something I liked, I applied for my home loan."  Yes, I do ask certain pre-qualifying questions first. Depending on the answers, and the amount of house payment desired,  determines if I should show them homes right now.  For example,  If a buyer doesn't have any money, has a low credit score, and doesn't  have a job, WHY in the world would I tempt them with something they can't have? It is setting a buyer up for failure and disappointment!  Well, in one particular situation, the buyer was wanting to ...

Did you know that Owensboro, Kentucky is the home of the world's largest Sassafras Tree?  Well, it is.  This natural wonder is almost 300 years old and it measures over 100 feet tall with over 21 feet in circumference. It is one of the first things we came to find during our relocation and home search.  It was very interesting especially  for my husband and son, as my son is an Arborist and together they have planted over 1000 trees just this year. This natural wonder right in the heart of Owensboro, Ky is located on Fredericka Street which is one of the busiest streets and a main thoroughfare in town.  Call or email me,Vickie McCartney, if you are coming this way, I would love to take you to see it! It really is pretty amazing to see. I have included a recipe from wikipedia for sassafr...

Oh!  Look at the little "Snowbabies".....in their own back yard in the snow.  Well, they are not actually snow babies, but they are in the snow -They are so snuggly and they are "best friends" and they live for and totally trust each other too.  They are with each other every step of the way. They are simply enjoying each other in the snow. Don't they just have the life? Did you get a chance to get out and play in your own neighborhood and frolic in the snow? These two furry friends are named Jillie, she is the Golden Retriever, and Bela is the yellow lab. They are actually my daughter's dogs, and she really acts like they are her daughters... my daughter has a form of Autism, she is 26 years old  and these dogs truly are her life! She lives for them and is very attached to them. The ho...

  Well let me first begin with this: this is all new to me too.   When I first came to Owensboro,KYso many people here and from other places asked me if "I tried the mutton yet."  Well, being the city girl that I am, I had no idea what they were talking about, and once I figured out what it was, I wanted no parts of it.   I thought WHY would I even want to eat it?  It just didn't sound appealing. I thought, Just shoot me!! But, then I got to thinking, maybe I should just have an open mind and with a little coercion from my husband on one of our house hunting trips, we decided to see what everyone was raving about.  I mean a Realtor should know what they are talking about, right? How can I tell people about something if I don't experience it myself, right? (I really had to convince mysel...
