Isn't it the worst when you're browsing the MLS for homes and the agent didn't bother to insert any pictures?  There have been several posts in the past about the importance of including pictures with listings.  I want to share my experience from early last week that will hopefully re-iterate th...

As each year goes by I become more detached from Christmas, at least Christmas as it is in the United States.  I feel as though many in our great country do not really understand what it’s all about and have fallen victim to over-commercialization. Don’t get me wrong, I like the lights and jingle...

Here are events in Hollywood that are free to all.  I have never heard of a Candy Cane parade and had no idea that they're that revered!!  Post event comment: It ended up being a decent-sized parade with many floats.  The Miami-Herald covered the event and had several pictures.  Who would have kn...

It just came across my desk yesterday that Bob Bruss passed away.  I looked for comment in AR but didn't see any so I'm jotting this short blog.  Back when I first got interested in real estate and investing (around 2001) I'd read his column in the Real Estate section of the Washington Post on Sa...

 I did a search earlier for a perspective client  when I came across the following pictue (yes, this was in my local MLS).  What do I call this?  The arcade?  Bring your Pac-Man console and you're good to go.  Wocka wocka wocka.Or shall we call it the darkroom?  Who needs Ofoto when you have your...

This is Off Topic as far as real estate goes but due to my emotional joy, I had to share.    Yesterday I caught a portion of the United States game against Poland in the U-20 Championships being held in Montreal and if this is any indication of what is to come, the US is in great shape.  Traditio...

It has been a long hard week, one of those that just wears you out.  So it was nice to login and have a nice joke waiting to bring some laughter.  Let me share it with everyone: A loan officer died and went up to St. Peter at the Pearly Gates to present himself for admittance to Heaven. Peter sai...

Here's an article that just popped up on CNN's Money site.  I'm sharing it to get insight from everyone. http://money.cnn.com/2007/06/08/real_estate/home_selling/index.htm?postversion=2007060814I'm not surprised that this has happened given that each market is different.  I'm just concerned that ...
