School's In Session! Here are our best tips on how to get your family classroom ready - Go to the head of the class! 1. Stuck in a rut? School lunch can be easy and fun! While bento boxes are certainly different, choosing traditional lunches and making them new and fun again are way better!

Foreclosures at Record Low.  Can you still find a deal? There has been some good news in the media lately regarding housing.  The share of US mortgages that are seriously delinquent fell to their lowest level in almost five years. And the percentage of loans in the foreclosure process at the end of the second quarter was 3.33%, the lowest since the fourth quarter of 2008, and down from 4.27% a year earlier. What does this mean for us locally?  In many areas of the Triangle, foreclosures are also down significantly. Although our area was not as hard hit as many parts of the country, we did experience an overall market decline. However, home sales are up and prices are on the rise in many areas of the Triangle.   A broad generalization should't be made about the overall local market howev...
