  2016 Walk To End Alzheimer's On October 16th.  If you have ever experienced what it is like to have a family member who has Alzheimer's or Dementia, you know what a major challenge Alzheimer's can be for not only the family member with it, but for all the members of the family as well.  Alzheimer's can change the lives a family dramatically, and the stress that it creates for everyone involved is beyond description. My wife and I have had to care for two family members who had Alzheimer's, and it was one of the toughest things both of us have ever had to deal with.  It is not just the level of care someone with Alzheimer's requires, it is also the emotional impact it has on those who are the care givers.  Alzheimer's is something you cannot prepare for. The Alzheimer's Association is...

Saint Patrick's Day --> March 17th Saint Patrick is the Roman Catholic Patron Saint of Ireland.  He died in the 5th century.  St. Patrick built churches and spread the Christian faith for some 30 years in Ireland. There are many myths about St. Patrick, but the most well known is that he drove all the snakes from Ireland into the Irish Sea where the snakes all drown. Here are some facts about St. Patrick's Day: FACT: St. Patrick was born in Britain not Ireland. FACT: In the US it is customary to wear green on St. Patrick's Day but in Ireland green was long considered to be unlucky.  Irish folklore says that green is the favorite color of the "Good People" (the proper name for faeries).  These "Good People" were thought to be likely to kidnap people (especially children) if they wore too...

East Hartford Connecticut Condo Sales As part of my marketing efforts, I work to compile data for condominium sales in towns in Connecticut.  My intention is to use the data to demonstrate the positive effects of obtaining an FHA Condo Approval. I was surprised to find that there are only 23 condominium projects in East Hartford; some neighboring towns have twice as many.  In 2011, when all condominium projects were required to get recertified with FHA, there were 11 projects on FHA’s Approved condominiums list.  That is a fairly high percentage from what I've seen. I found it even more surprising that only ONE of the condominiums is currently approved with FHA.  There have been two others that have applied for approvals but have been rejected, primarily for financial reasons.  Hopefull...

How to choose a credit repair company   Not sure how to choose a credit repair company?  Let me be of assistance to you.  The first thing you should do is to interview them!  That's right interview.  After all you are hiring them - they will be your employees.  You should interview at least three companies.  Look for a company that will fulfill YOUR needs.    That brings us to my first point - What are your needs?  Make a list of what you are trying to accomplish.  Are you trying to buy a home or a car?  What score do you need to achieve to meet your goal?  How much time do you have to work with?  How much are you willing to participate in the repair process - Are you willing to let the credit repair do it all or do you want to do some of the work yourself?  Make a list of how you answe...

East Hartford CT was a busy market for real estate sales in 2011, but not quite as active as in 2010. According to MLS data, there were 307 closed sales in 2011 compared to 343 in 2010. In addition, the median price dropped to $144,000 in 2011 from $155,000 in 2010.  That's a 7.1% decrease in median price and 10.5% drop in closed sales. Here is a look at the closed sales by month: As was typical for many markets, East Hartford showed a surge in activity in the months before the expiration of the homebuyers' tax credits on June 30, 2010.  This activity could not be matched in 2011, but from July through the end of the year, 2011 generally outpaced the same months of 2010, showing a more optimistic trend. There are plenty of bargains to be had in East Hartford, and buyers seemed to be tak...

“Refinancing an 11.75% First Mortgage in East Hartford, CT.”   11.75% is not a misprint. Let me start from the beginning. About a year ago, Jay came to me, referred by his attorney. In 2009, Jay leased a property with an option to buy. A part of this option, he could do renovations ($46,000 worth). Not thinking that he should investigate mortgages, prior to invest all this money into a home he did not own.   After investing the money into the home and his option period was due to expire, he attempted to get a “NORMAL” mortgage and was not successful. Not willing to lose all the money he had invested, he found a private investor to give him a mortgage, at 11.75%.   At the time I originally met with Jay his mid credit score was 549. For just about a year, I worked with him to repair his c...
