Just watch the video and you'll know more about the bank bailouts than reading scores of articles and reports.  Whoever did this one is a genius.         Who Needs a Stinkin' Real Estate Agent? If you are serious about buying a home and you don't want to over pay, take a few minutes to watch my v...

Forget about troubled homeowners trying to stop the foreclosure with a "show me the note" defense.  It's kind of a David vs. Goliath battle.  That's kind of small potatoes compared to what's shaping up to be massive lawsuits between  two Goliaths: banks vs.  large investment houses. It looks like...

I had a guy call me the other week.  He has his condo on the market and wanted me to come over to look at it hoping that I might have a possible buyer. He went on and on about how great it was but a lot of people do that and many times their home is way overpriced.  But when I saw this 2700 squar...

By getting quiet title to his home, it meant that he still owed the money but the promissory note wasn't secured by his home anymo...

I've never taken the time to read much of Martin Luther King Jr.'s writings.  I read his I Have a Dream Speech but not much more. So this weekend I'm taking time to read some stuff that he wrote.  He wrote a long letter while he was in a jail in Birminghamand there are some things that resonated ...

If you have a few minutes, watch these two interviews with Joe Zamudio.  He's one of the people who helped subdue the shooter in Tucson on Saturday. I hope that when the time comes, I can be as brave as he was.  Hearing shots being fired, instead of running for cover, he sought out the problem an...

Dan Rosenberger did a post about the recent Massechusetts Supreme Court ruling where it was upheld that the banks in question didn't have proper standing in order to foreclose because the assignment of the mortgage was done after the foreclosure process had started. It sets up the requirement of ...

In Atlanta, we don't get that many opportunities to go sledding down our driveway.  So it's a nice novelty when we got five inches of snow  and can go sledding. I just wanted to share some of the fun.
