 In another loving move to get cats out of the local animal shelter, the Humane Society of Broward County, FL., Fort Lauderdale, FL. has started a new initiative: Office Cats. Local businesses, willing to 'foster' a cat, will be matched with a cat by the shelter who will provide the cat food, litter & toys. Prior to becoming Office Cats, the felines are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped, de-wormed and treated for fleas and ticks. The shelter will also showcase the cats on its website. In return, the businesses agree to feature their Office Cats & stories on their websites and allow clients and employees ready access to the animals. The idea is to find suitable adoptive families for the cats. Already a local business, paired with two cats, believes that both will soon be adop...

Tenant or Owner? With rental rates rising, a lot more tenants in Fort Lauderdale are likely to be wondering whether they should be taking a new look at their residence situation.   Conceptually, paying your own mortgage has always seemed more appealing than paying a landlord’s mortgage every month.   Especially this time of year, when tax time puts the whole year’s finances out there on one piece of paper, seeing how thousands of dollars have slipped away for another year can be a little frustrating.  Not surprisingly, then, this is a time of year when, as a buyer’s agent, I begin hear the phone ring a little more often!   Seen from the long term perspective, dollars put toward a home you are buying go toward building a future -- something rent dollars cannot do. But there are more int...
