Luckily I have wi-fi, and can get online from the garage. If given a choice, that is where I am. Between MLS searches, arranging marketing, and pre-viewing homes, I will try to get in a little welder time, or at least clean some of the tools from the last wrenching session.



Could it really be about anything else?  I am a garage specialist, so of course not.   First, let's get this out of the way.  Single car garages are made to store lawn tools and maybe a motorcycle.  Two car garages are the minimum an auto enthusiast would consider.  Three car garages are starting...
This entry will have two distinct parts. Part I If you are a seller, or thinking about selling because you are in financial trouble, STOP.  Examine what you are doing and why.  Examine all of your options.  Talk to a credit counselor, like CCCS in Atlanta (no experience with them personally, but ...
As if it is an oddity, I'm going to step out on a limb, and make a couple of strong statements... then we'll see if I can back then up.  The first statement is: At the core, ethics are a fixed behavior.

The helpful agent that has listed the property (unless the...

However, there are a few other terms that are often used (wrongly) as interchangeable with appraisal.  Other value estimates, such as a BPO or CMA are often confused with appraisals.  While all three aim to...
Every once in a while, we fall into an opportunity.  Here is one if you qualify, and are selected. There is a new program that is looking to film first time home-buyers as they visit homes, make a selection, and then offer for a house.  Everyone gets a shot at their fifteen minutes of fame.  Film...
Meet Pat Johnson of the blue CJ.  This poor guy is often my road trip companion.  This particular picture was on one of our Moab trips.  If you look at the Moab, My Happy Place post, you'll see the tow rig dragging our toys out there.  Here is Pat playing in the "Wedgie" on the Poison Spider Mesa...
I have been asked several times how I can think of so many different topics for blog posts... It's easy.  Seriously.  Here are a few tips I would pass on: Read several things every day.  I read the daily and weekly REALTOR(R) Magazine Online emails, and go to the full story whenever something str...
