The construction industry is another area that considerably enjoys the benefits of advancements made in technology.

 You may wonder why a corporate real estate structure might be using a different name than the one it is registered under - or even have some questions about trust and legitimacy. Well, the real estate industry is no different than any other American sector, so let’s take a closer look at DBA’s:DBA stands for “Doing Business As”, which is a name given to an enterprise in addition to its legal name. It is also referred to as a fictitious name, an assumed name, or trade name. A DBA has to be filed and registered with the county or state authorities. Once it has been recorded in a business’ name, the business can claim it for itself and the name is protected by law.The DBA informs the public that a particular business entity will be operating under a name other than the legal name. Filing ...

I am not going to bore you with the detail on how home values are determined.  It is an art rather than a science.   Most folks generally have a good feel for the market but it does take a fair amount of skill to get the numbers correct when you are interested in buying or selling a home.   The Automated Valuation Models (AVM) are interesting and I do include them in my research in any neighborhood but they are sometimes out to lunch and need to be discarded.   The word that we use is a CMA or comparative market analysis.  It sounds impressive right?  Basically we look for homes that we can compare to the subject home.  Hopefully, these homes will be in the same neighborhood, constructed from similar materials, have other similar traits.  It is fairly easy if we are looking at condo uni...

Some sportsbooks may offer more betting varieties along with the combinations than others.If you are someone who is an avid sport better and know well about sports Betting in Canada to be an asp...

Banks are slamming the brakes on foreclosures in Las Vegas, and at first glance, the numbers are encouraging, even amazing.Some 30 homes a month were hit with default notices in both August and July, compared to a monthly average of around 380 in the six months prior.At the same time, creditors scheduled upcoming auctions for around 75 homes in July and 85 in August. Before that, they were scheduling an average of 235 auctions a month this year, according to housing tracker Attom Data Solutions.Does all of this mean that Southern Nevada — the epicenter of America’s foreclosure crisis after the economy crashed — has (finally!) shed its repo woes? That the blue-taped foreclosure notices are, once and for all, disappearing from neighbors’ doors and windows?My advice: Don’t get too excited....
