Is South Carolina becoming the next Florida for retirees and others heading south?  Lately, in our market, I have noticed a lot of folks coming in from other states.  South Carolina, particularly the Columbia area, is a great place to live.  Columbia is a great place to raise a family. It offers a ton of activities to do, such as outdoors activities, cultural, and the like. Here are some reasons that make SC a great place to live:1- Weather - Average temperature is 65 to 75 Degrees, we have four season and usually no snow! 2- Cost of Living is low 3- No Hurricanes (very seldom) 4- Abundance of land 5- Low taxes/insurance 6- Location...Columbia is close to everything. It's about 2 hours from Charleston ant the beach and 2-3 hours from the mountains.7- Hospitality...nothing better than So...

  Are you or someone you know having a hard time with your new Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) payments? You are not alone - millions of Americans are in the same predicament. If your property is in South Carolina or Tenessee, I may be able to help you.

We must be able to determine that the increased interest rate and subsequent higher payment caused the deliquency.     You must meet all of these Eligibility Requirements: Have a...

  I've been in petroleum pipeline business for about 31 years, currently  working for the Kinder-Morgan Pipeline here in San Jose, CA.  We deliver about 4 million gallons in a 24-hour period from the pipe line; one day it's diesel, the next day it's jet fuel and gasoline.  We have 34 storage tanks here with a total capacity of 16,800,000 gallons. Here are some tricks to help you get your money's worth.  1. Fill up your car or truck in the morning when the temperature is still cool.Remember that all service stations have their storage tanks buried below ground; and the colder the ground, the denser the gasoline.& nbsp; When it gets warmer gasoline expands, so if you're filling up in the afternoon or in the evening, what should be a gallon is not exactly a gallon.  In the petroleum busine...

When it comes to home showings, it's best to have an agent present the house. They'll present the house from a sales perspective and know the right things to say. It's also preferable for you to be away from the home during the showing or open house. This will make potential buyers feel more at ease and allow them to take a more thorough look around without feeling rushed or intrusive. Here are a few tips to make your home inviting and appeal to the largest number of potential buyers. Clean or paint the front door to make a sharp first impression Remove family pictures to make it easier for buyers to imagine living in the home Organize closets and consider moving unnecessary items to a temporary storage unit to make storage areas appear larger Clear as many objects from shelves as possi...
