In the town of Pocono Lake this site actually ranks Realtors according to how many Blogs they post. My question is "Would you, the reader want to read relevant information about your community or see what listings a real estate agent has sold recently or even what they have for sale currently?" Seems to me that since You Can Always See EVERYTHING that is Currently on the Market in Arrowhead Lakes Just By Clicking Here, that you would like much more than that. Since Active Rain's ranking statistics don't differentiate from the art of a skillful blog and the art of 'copy and pasting', there will always be a ranking system that is deceiving to the Active Rain Consumer. In other words, being ranked #1 on Active Rain doesn't necessarily mean you are the top Blogger just that you are really g...

     Ok Arrowhead Residents and Homeowners and potential future homeowners, this morning (Monday April 6) was the second monday in a row I found my self retrieving my trash can and cleaning up a mess of garbage strewn all over the place. I thought it must be a bear at first then my mind turned to the devious raccoons that I have battled wits with in the past and with the help a few COLD buckets of water was victorious in getting those sly garbage junkies to retreat in  a wet panic and hadn't returned since.      As I drove down the road to take Molly to the bus stop though I noticed one of the Very Big and Very Heavy Wooden Trash bins that hold the trash cans for most of the part timers was completely turned over and his trash spewed about in much the same manner as my own. This is the ...

Here we are March 2009 and in typical Pocono Fashion the temps the past few days have slipped down to 2-3 degrees overnight. Sad news is we will probably still see those temps at the end of the month while we will officially beinto the Spring Season! Speaking of Spring Season, now is a good time to book a Spring Weekend away in the Poconos. April tends to be a magical time with ski season closing out and the GREEN Landscape making its long awaited return. Book your Weekend away in one of our Pocono Rental Homes so you can catch glimpse of the baby fawn being born and the black bear waking up. Take a look for yourself by visiting us on our web page by clicking the link below. Anyone wishing to join our rental program would also be interested in the information provided on this page.

My mortgage guy sent me this info.   Last week, Mr. Obama signed into law the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, which contains nearly $800 million in economic stimulus spending and tax relief designed to help individuals and businesses in the current economic climate. The following is a list of some of the major provisions of the new law without significant details which will follow as rules are issued. Note that many of the benefits are temporary and/or are phased out for higher income individuals. Higher Loan Limits. Conforming and FHA mortgage limits in high-cost areas were temporarily raised back to the limits which expired at the end of 2008. This will mean an increase from $625,000 to just under $730,000 in higher cost of living areas such as Northern California and ...

The Challenge of Buyers A buyers' market should be just that -- a buyers' market. It's not a fence-sitting, waiting, loitering, delaying, dawdling, postponing, vacillating, hesitating, wavering, faltering, pausing, foot-shuffling market. It's a buyers' market. By its very name it means buyers should be doing one thing and one thing only -- buying. So where are the buyers, and why aren't they buying?   Heather A.
