Peanut does not like the rain. I've seen her wait 14, 15, even 16 hours to go in the yard if it's raining out. Even a little drizzling dissuades her from stepping foot outside, and today's nonstop deluge is definitely enough to keep her sleeping on the couch.But the sound of the leash? Oh, for th...

The Central Florida real estate market is full of great opportunites for the smart homebuyer.  If prepared, a buyer is in the driver's seat and can negotiate the lowest price and best terms.  Of course, you must do your research and make sure you don't pay too much for a home.  But before you spe...
