Are you interested in purchasing a HUD home? Do you have some questions about HUD homes? Here are some answers. What is a HUD Home? A HUD home is a 1 to 4 unit residential property acquired by HUD as a result of a foreclosure action on an FHA-insured mortgage. HUD becomes the property owner and offers it for sale to recover the loss on the foreclosure claim. Who can buy a HUD Home? Almost anyone! If you have the cash or can qualify for a loan (subject to certain restrictions) you may buy a HUD Home. HUD Homes are initially offered to owner-occupant purchasers (people who are buying the home as their primary residence). Following the priority period for owner occupants, unsold properties are available to all buyers, including investors. Are there any special programs? Properties in desig...

OK I am down to the last book. And let me tell you out of all of them, this one is the BEST!! Like I told you before I have been obessed with it and havae not been able to put it down. Book 4 has close to 800 pages of unstopable reading! I know many of you really aren't into this type of reading. But I can assure you that its not what you think. If you are one who loved the Romeo and Juliet type of reading, then this is the book for you. IF you are more into mystery, this is also for you. This series can be read by many if you take the chance to open it. From the very first page of book one you will be hooked! My friend borrowed the first one and started reading it on her lunch break and was unable to put it down. She also had her regards for the book and totally changed her mind when s...

So I just posted about Black Friday. I know that many of us don't like to go to the stores on that VERY crazy day! So my hubby and I really pay attention to the internet. So we pay attention to Cyber Monday. So if you feel that you will miss a deal that day, then this is right up your alley. Plus we here on AR are always on the computer. So this will work for us!!! Here are a few sites you can go to, this is one and this it the other.  So I hope you find good deals!!

Every year I sign up to see what stores will be offfering on sale on Black Friday. In case you are not sure what that is, its the day after Thanksgiving. The stores open up early and just about everything is on sale. Now I am not crazy enough to wake up at 4 in the morning to be at the stores for 5am. My mom and sisters have, but there is no way I will do that. But I do go later in the afternoon, or even over the weekend. I have gone to Wal-Mart at midnight and done my shoping at that time. Ok where was I going. Oh Yeah, there is a site you can go to register to receive emails to see what is coming.   Go sign up and see what you can get for the holidays. I still can't believe its right around the corner! Don't wait to long.

So the other day I wrote about the Twilight Series and how I have been abscessed with it. Well I went and bought book three on Wednesday morning and it was 700 pages. I was like this one will take me a few days! I was done within a day and a half. I actually had to force myself to go to sleep. Then I twist and turned all night trying to figure out what was going to happen next. I had to go to work on Thursday. They saw me with the book in my hand. We got to talking and now I have them excited about the book. I went today to drop off book one to one of the girls and she has already started reading it. This morning I had went to target to pick up book 4. They were sold out. I panicked, I was like how can I finish, when I can get this book. I had to be somewhere so I couldn't try another s...

I was asked to read a book for someone, and as you know I love to read. My children are also avid readers. This book was for kids with separation anxiety. My son has this, so I was more than happy to read it. I sat down with my kids and started to read it to them. When I came to certain parts of the book, he would mention to me like you and me mommy. So I was very happy that he understood where the book was going. Its about a pig and his Mom goes back to work and the little pig is sad and scared. So the Lady that comes to take care of him goes on a special adventure and learns there is lots to do to get his mind off of mommy. Before he realizes its time for mom to come back home and is so excited to tell Mommy how his day went. Mom son just loved the book! Can't wait till it comes out, ...

Have you ever read a book and was so mesmerized that you couldn't put it down? Well I am an avid reader, always have been. I had heard about this Twilight book and just brushed it off. I love a mystery, I like to be kept at the edge of the seat wondering what will happen when I turn the page! I didn't think that this series would do just that. Boy was I wrong. I could not help myself. I bought the first of the five books last week Wednesday and was done by Friday. I then bought book two yesterday and was done by the end of the day. Now mind you, each book is about 400 pages. When I bought the book yesterday I didn't think it would be so fast that I finished the book. But I could not put the darn thing down for the life of me. I even put my kids to sleep early just to read the book. Let ...

Today my kids and I did our Home Depot projects. Have you gone yet to do any of there projects? If not you should give it a try. Today we build leaf presses. This is a great one, to be able to dry the leaves and make use of them after. Here is my issue. I grew up in New York and had the chance to be able to see the changing of the fall leaves. All those beautiful yellows and oranges and reds. We love Sunny South Florida, but I would love for them to see these leaves in person. Its not the same in the pictures as if you had one in hand. So here is where I ask my ActiveRain northern friends, if by any chance you can send me any fall leaves that have changed colors yet. I want to be able to save them, press them and make some collage with them. Do you think this is possible? I sure hope so...

Its that time of the year. Did you forget? November 2 is the day we fall back. I almost forgot till I was reading a magezine. Seeing pictures of the fall leaves, the changing of the colors. Finding them on the ground and making piles just to jump in them. I miss those days! Don't get me wrong, I love Sunny South Florida. But would love for my kids to get that chance I had growing up in NY! Anyways, just a reminder November 2 to roll your clocks back an hour!! Adios!

Yesterday the City of Tamarac had there Halloween Hoopla. They were set up for lots of activites outside, with a bounce house, face painting, sack races and more. We were waiting on line to get my daughters face painted when it started to rain on us. So we had to run indoors. When we got in there was more to me done. Arts and crafts which is my daughters favortie thing in the world. From there in the Gym was more games and prizes to win. in the main part of the building was a Haunted House, which we did not touch since the kids are to young for that and would be scared for life!. I think the city did a great job with this event. They gave out bags filled with stuff inside for the kids. And all this for free!!! To bad outside got rained out. But thanks Tamarac for a great time! Here are...

So I was chosen to do the Blogger's choice Selection by Midori Miller. I was thrilled when I was asked. This month I have a different spin on things. I love doing videos. So this month I decided why not do a narrated video on my choice selection. Most of my selection is great for those new to ActiveRain. So take a look through these post leave them a comment and let them know I sent you. Jeremy BlantonDiscusses how we can intertwine  facebook and twitter for SEO. Especially for Newbies coming along.   Jeff Belonger Another one for the Newbies. Showing how to link properly when you are writing a post.     Debe Maxwell Great way to get the buyers going on how they can benefit in this market.       Jeremy Blanton Again another one for Jeremy. This one is closer to home though. I enjoy vid...

For those of you who do not know what Divali is. It's a Hindu holiday, Festival of Lights. The Goddness of Lakshmi. I am not Hindu, but my in- Laws are. All of my children have Hindu middle names. I wanted to give them a piece of there nationality from there grandparents. This holiday comes at the darkest time of the year. If you go out on Tuesday night you will notice how dark it is. I never took note of if till I learned about this holiday. Here is a small clip from the article in the paper the other day. "Whether we're in big countries or on small islands, Divali is an inherent part of our nationality and culture."Coming at the darkest time of the year, Divali represents a Festival of Lights, much like Hanukkah, the Jewish wintertime festival. The South Florida Hindu Temple will cele...

OK I am an iPhone user and LOVE IT!! The only problem I had was not being able to access the MLS since the phone is not IE. But our board (South Broward Board of Realtors) have somehow came up with something new and great. It's MLX Wireless. At first I glanced over it the other day when I logged on. I thought I can't use this, so I closed the window. I logged on again today and it popped up again. So I read further and in one of the drop down menus for phones there was the iPhone. I thought can this be for real? You guess right. I regirsterd and within seconds I get an email saying registration complete. And sure enough I can search the MLS from the phone!!! You have no idea how excited I am about this. And on top of it, its fro FREE!!!! Our board is suppling this for free! I'm LOVING I...

I had a very long day today. Inspection issues, insurances issues with my car from my accident last week, and other things going on. So I am changing into my sleeping clothes when my daughter says mom, look you are wearing a purple shirt and purple shorts. Well I tell her you know mommy use to sing a song when I was in Middle School or as others say Junior High School, for a chorus production. But I couldn't remember the words. She says how could you forget the words? Well it was a long time ago. I went to youtube to see if I could find it there. And sure enough there it was. So I played it for her and she just enjoyed the song as I knew she would. Now she is trying to sing it herself but can't keep up with the pace and is getting all twisted up. Its going to be good practice for her. I...

Today was a field trip day for Tamarac Elementary School. Where did they go? They ventured out to the Fire Station, located off of Hiatus, just across from City Furniture. Boy did they have a blast. I also learned a few things today. So I will share. Do you have a plan in case there is a fire in your home? Have you gone over it with your children? Do you have a place outside that your kids know where to meet you if you get separated in the house going out? No, well I think this is a very important subject. I don't have a plan, but know that this is something I will be working on with my family and it is something you should think about. When was the last time you checked your smoke detectors? Do you know if they still work? Check on them today, there is a button on the smoke detectors t...

Did you know that Florida has now started Silver Alerts? No, neither did I. I was driving on the Florida Turnpike yesterday when I saw the Silver alert on the main dashboard where they usually state whether or not there are accidents or where they display if there is an amber alert. So when I saw silver I was a bit confused. Today in the paper it went on to explain what a Silver Alert is. I was very happy to hear it. As you might know that a lot of people retire here. Well we also have a great deal of people with Alzheimer'. Many are in assisted living facilities. But sometimes they get out and since they are already confused and they get lost. So it turns out that Gov. Charlie Christ started this and has gone active as of October 8 and has been used twice, both times finding the person...

Yesterday I posted that I needed to find an inspector in Broward County. Two my surprise I only got two comments. One was from Vickie Arcuri and from Earl Johnson from Gulf Atlantic funding. Thanks to both of you. I passed it along to my client and let them made the decision on who to use. We need to someone get some broward county inspectors here on the Rain. I know that there are plenty out there. I am going to have to pick up the phone and get chatting with some of them. Maybe even the one my clients decides to go with. So I will be on a mission to get some inspectors going here.   Wish me luck!
