A final walk through is an often over looked and sometimes mistreated part of the home buying process.  Many buyers simply take a 20 minute walk through of the house right before the closing.  This is a mistake. A final walk through serves many purposes. - Make sure all agreed upon repairs are c...

In 1984 the television show "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" premiered with massive success.  It was the dawn of reality television.  Sometime later, MTV Cribs showed us how wealthy people lived.  Now there are actually channels dedicated to this.  We all have a voyeuristic tendency to see ho...

To shovel or not to shovel When it snows and we know it's going to be just snow, no rain or sleet mixed it either during or after the snows stops, we shovel.  Some of us just can't wait for the snow to stop before we get outside and shovel.  No problem with that at all.  Most of us just wait for ...
