Potentially Defective Foreclosures  Guest Blog by James E. Savitz, Esq. Recently, the news has been filled with stories about defective foreclosures, temporary halting of filings, remedies for consumers, etc. I have been handling all of the Maryland REO properties for several national lenders for the past couple of years, and in the process, I review every foreclosure file when the properties go on the market for resale.

 October is Blooming in Maryland When I walk through my home neighborhood of Kentlands, in Gaithersburg, Maryland, I like to have a camera in hand.  I take pictures of flowers as a hobby. Chrysanthemums are blooming at this time of the year. Many of notice the plants but not the individual blooms. Much like dealing with people, the beauty is in the individual blooms. Enjoy the fall season in your neighborhood. Facebook photo album: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=5910133&l=0dd9f7ed27&id=640401192

 Ready for fall in Kentlands. Life is good in Maryland. It is always a good idea to have a camera in hand when you walk through your neighborhood. The Kentlands neighborhood is a wonderful area for walks. The neo-traditional design is very well done, the homes are pretty and there are many flowers to be photographed. Life is very good in Montgomery County.
