Yesterday I got a call about my listing in a certain community.  Puzzled because I don't have a listing in the community at this time, I started to explain how IDX works, thinking this was how the caller had found me. She listened but told me no, she found me on Active Rain.  She was certain of that.I was still confused because it's been a while since I posted about this community.  She texted me a copy of a post from 2020 and another from 2014 about this same community.  The caller thought they were current listings.  I thanked her for calling, explained these weren't current listings (the dates were on the posts) and explained what Active Rain was.  She had never heard of it before. In the midst of this,  I remembered Liz and Bill Spear 's post Old Posts Keep on Ticking and realized, ...

(Clear Path Mortgage - NMLS ID #2079870)
This week we will see a dramatic drop in our national GDP for the 3rd Quarter of 2021.  This will have a large effect on what the Federal Reserve looks at before they start their possible tapering of asset purchases.  If it is well below the estimate below then you could see them holding off a bit longer.  I sure hope they do because I still see too many signs of weakness in the economy.  Since 2.8% is the estimate for this number on Thursday, I think anything below 2.2% will give the Federal Reserve Governers reason to pause.  Also, Chairman Powell wants to be re-nominated so that will also lean heavily on his mind.

Things to Know Before Buying a Pet-Friendly Home in Boca Raton FL  There are things to consider before buying a pet-friendly home in Boca Raton FL.  This is especially true when you are making the move with pets.  Below are some great tips to help you. What type of house are you looking for? Do you know?  Is a single family home better than a a condo? Maybe yes, maybe no.  Do your dogs bark a lot?  Do they fall within the condo's pet rules and regulations as to breed, number and weight?  Do you mind going up and down an elevator to walk the dog at all times of the day or night? If the answer to any of these is yes, then a single family home might be a better way to go.  No one will complain about your dogs' barking, unless you leave them outside.  And that's not a good idea in south Flo...

Pet Restrictions in Condos in Boca Raton FL Pet restrictions in condos are not all the same.  If you're looking to buy a pet-friendly condo in Boca Raton FL, make sure you are familiar with all the pet restrictions first.  As it turns out, they can be far more complex than you would think. Recently I worked with a couple who have two small Poodles.  You would think it would be easy because of their size.  Unfortunately, not so!    One oceanfront condo had pet restrictions of one dog maximum 20 lbs.  In addition, you had to post a $ 5000 bond and, if your dog made noise, you would be given a five-day notice to have the dog removed.  Really?!  You're buying a condo to live in and they give you five days to get rid of a family member for noise?  And they call it pet friendly.   Restriction...
