How to Manage your Credit 2010 marks a turning point in the world of consumer credit. We've just survived the worst credit environment since, well, ever. The CARD Act went into affect (most of it anyway) on in February 2010. And, lenders are actually starting to increase the amount of pre-approved mail they send to prospective cardholders. How can consumers benefit from this new environment? Where are the potholes? And lastly, what should we be doing with our credit scores?Pothole #1 - Having Average FICO Scores is Good Enough. If you think this then you're making a big mistake. Those of you who have FICO scores in the mid 600's were considered golden 36 months ago. Today, you're considered too risky and the credit market has largely passed you by. Conversely, if you have FICO scores ab...

If you are like so many of us who promised ourselves that we would eat better, maybe even getting those five servings of fruits and vegetables a day into our diet, you probably know that half the battle is having the food on hand.  If it were, maybe we wouldn't succumb to that "bad snacking" that is so easy to do. Well, I found a FABULOUS resource to help me keep the promises I made for healthier new me:  ALDI! ALDI believes that people should have the opportunity to buy the highest quality groceries at the lowest possible prices.  I was lured by their flyer in my Sunday paper advertising fruit prices.  Our store is located on Route 83 in Vernon, CT next to Spare Time Bowling.     Here's what I bought: Package of three Romaine hearts Bag of flat leaf baby spinach Package of four Anjou p...

How's the real estate market in Vernon, CT?  I am often asked that question, so I compiled some results.  Let's take a look at what has sold in Vernon, CT in December 2009 compared with what has sold in Vernon, CT in December 2008.  What we will see is that the activity was robust compared to the prior year, and just as important, the current market presents a great opportunity for first-time homebuyers as well as repeat buyers. In December 2009, there were 18 closed sales with a median price of $200,500.  In December 2008, there were 13 closed sales with a median price of $200,000.  Currently on the market are 93 homes, with 64 priced at under $250,000.  With a few months left for buyers to take advantage of the $8,000 first-time homebuyer tax credit or the $6,500 repeat buyer tax cre...

  The first-time homebuyer credit had quite an impact on closed sales in Vernon during October and November 2009.  Compared with the same months in the prior year, November 2009 showed significant increases over November 2008, while October 2009 actually had fewer closed sales that the same month the prior year. Interestingly, the median price in October 2009 was $194,900 compared to $193,000 in October 2008, so not much change there.  But in November 2009, the median price was $200,000 compared to $210,000 in November 2008. Here's the breakdown by price point:     October 2009 October 2008 November 2009 November 2008           Under $100,000 0 2 0 0 $100,000-149,999 2 1 2 1 $150,000-199,99 10 9 9 3 $200,000-249,999 7 10 6 2 $250,000-299,999 3 3 3 3 $300,000-349,000 0 1 2 2 $350,000-39...

 REIN'S DELI 435 Hartford TpkVernon, CT 06066(860) 875-1344 For a while I've been craving a *good* New York Style deli sandwich.  However, to travel 2 hours to get this meal seemed a little extravagent.  A friend of mine knowing this took me to Rein's Deli (founded in 1972) in Vernon CT.  I was blown away.  Walking through the door you instantly felt that you were transported to the Big Apple.  There is a life size Statue of Liberty in the middle of the diningroom.  The smells and the display cases were if I was standing in SOHO, not Vernon CT. I ordered a corned beef on rye.. oh my gosh was it great.  My friend had the Hebrew National traditional kosher pastrami (is this a mouthful?)  No pun intended.  This has got to be the BEST authentic Jewish deli in Connecticut.  Oh, and their gar...

I have my first $8,000 stimulus success story to share: One of my referral partners (from www.ibuyyourleads.com) sent me a client with a 656 score.  I went 5 for 5 (meaning he had 5 derogatory accounts and they ALL were removed from his credit report).  In just 35 days his score popped to a 718.  The client was a young kid just out of college.  He bought a bank owned disaster of a property for $70,000 in Vernon Connecticut (with$5,000 closing cost credit included).  He obtained a hard money rehab loan for $90,000 (from my referral partner) with his new 718 FICOscore.  He just completed his 2008 tax return.  He was entitled to a $7,000 credit for buying his first home (remember than $8,000 is the max - it is 10% of the purchase price which was $70,000).  He would have owed $600 and chang...

Yesterday, on my errand list, was a note to purchase a few rubber balls for Jack, our black lab.  He has other toys, but, really loves those tennis balls.  He has become a master at taking them apart, within minutes.  So, I was determined to find him a solid rubber one.  He has a Kong, which is fun for him to play with, but, still not a ball. To my amazement, we, my Daughter and I, looked closely at the tags to see where they were made, you guessed it ~ China.  That didn't give me a good feeling.  We continued to look, now we are on the 2nd isle, about to give up and there was one company that made balls, MADE IN USA. Though they had the rope going throught the middle, and they were not solid, but, we opted to get one of these.  When we were checking out, the manager of the store asked ...
