If your city or town is participating in a tax reevaluation, it's important for you to pay attention to the process and be proactive.  The first thing to be aware of is the initial appointment with the tax assessor.  He or She will most likely tour your home rather quickly.  (For ease in writing this post, I will refer to the assessor as 'she') If you happen to miss the initial appointment, be sure to reschedule.  Although many homeowners think it is best to keep the assessor OUT, that really is not the case.  It is always best for the assessor to see the home, in person, rather than to guess about the details.  For instance, Pennsville, NJ (www.pennsville.org) where I live, is going through this process now.  I came home from work one day to find a 'sticky note' on my front door to not...

This is a thank you to the Woman's Club in Skagway, Alaska. When I was on vacation in 2008 and touring the small town of Skagway, I noticed a church who was having a 'flower show' for the local Woman's Club. It caught my eye right away as I am a member of the Pennsville Woman's Club. www.pennsville.org After a small admission fee, my family was treated to a lovely display of plants and flowers - all grown by my GFWC sisters. http://www.gfwc.org/ And they were all beautiful! There were refreshments, too. You may be wondering why I am thinking about something that happened a year-and-a-half ago. Well, at our monthly luncheon today the announcement was made that it's that time again - it's time for the annual 'contests'. You can participate in a writing contest, photography, cake baking (o...

I have 3 listings currently that are teetering on foreclosure. This is, unfortunately, quite common now-a-days. One of my listings is undercontract and we are at the mercy of the mortgage company's approval of an agreement of sale. I've written about this one before. My client has not paid their mortgage payment since 2007. I would have thought that Option One would have jumped at the chance to sell this one and move it off of their books, but that does not seem to be the case. The agreement of sale is over $140,000 less than what is owed.The second property is now priced $60,000 less than the mortgage amount. Once we obtain a buyer, we will try our best to negotiate a short sale with that mortgage company. The house is in decent enough shape.......I've certainly seen worse! My client h...
