During a Phillies' Tuesday night sellout, a touching family moment turned into comic relief and a video that is drawing national attention. A toddler from Laurel Springs, New Jersey, stole the hearts of baseball fans Tuesday night during the Phillies-Nationals game at Citizens Bank Park. Phillies outfielder Jason Werth was at bat when he hit a foul ball into the crowd behind home plate. Steve Monforto leaned over the railing and made a beautiful 2-handed catch. He celebrates with other fans, high-fives his 3-year-old daughter, Emily, and hands his prize over to his little daughter to keep. But instead of hanging on to it, Emily does what little kids do: She throws the ball back! Her dad was shocked, he definitely wasn't expecting that. But instead of getting mad he wraps his arms around...

Time ticks by so quickly. They say Real estate professionals have reported that first-time home buyers are flooding the sale market, pressed to finalize a deal before the federal government's $8,000 tax credit offer expires on Nov. 30.Because approvals, residential inspections, and other steps in the buying process typically take about two months, buyers hoping to take advantage of the incentive will need to have a contract by the end of September. The new flurry of activity now as house-hunters try to meet the deadline is triggering bidding wars and energizing the property market, which historically is slow at the end of summer. As a result, more homes are getting their full asking price.There is no repayment obligation required on this credit for qualified principal residences purchas...

 Once in a while this word pops up as a threat to the economy. This happened most recently a few weeks ago when it was revealed that consumer prices fell 2.1 percent over the last 12 months, the largest drop in 59 years. The doomsayers took that message and ran with it. If deflation comes it will be the result of a collapse of the world economy. However, the mainstream recognized that this drop in inflation was really the result of a moderation of energy prices. Remember, last year when oil prices were spiking towards $150 per barrel? The bursting of the oil bubble saw prices plummet to just over $30 per barrel in a matter of months and subsequently moderate in the $60 to $75 range.Can the lack of inflation can be seen as good news? The Federal Reserve Board has indicated that even thou...

  Did You Know?   For the first time in almost 15 years, the size of new homes built in the United States is shrinking. New homes are now 7% smaller, or the size of one averagesized room. To be precise, the median square footage of newly built homes fell to 2,065 square feet in the first three months of this year, compared with the same period last year, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.2008 marked the first year of declines since 1994. That could indicate that the romance between Americans and morbidly obese McMansions has finally cooled. "A new ethic is arising right now that will become commonplace," said Sarah Susanka, author of the book, The Not So Big House. "As more and more people build or remodel homes that satisfy in quality rather than quantity, there will be a huge shift ...

Time is running out on the homebuyer tax credit.Use any metaphor you want: the ticking clock, sands running through thehourglass or pages falling away from the calendar. The fact is, time isrunning out to claim the $8,000 first-time homebuyers tax credit. The average has been taking around 90 days to close on a house after acontract is signed, buyers have very little time left to act. As ofThurs., Aug. 27, there were only 96 days left before the credit ends.The credit does not have to be repaid.The bad part: It ends on Dec. 1.     Keller Williams Real Estate 601 Bethlehem PikeBuilding B, Suite 100Montgomeryville, PA 18936Main Office: 215-631-1900Direct: 215-850-9640 · Contact Form http://www.pahomesmontgomerycounty.com/

The Eagles may not know exactly how they'll use backup quarterback Michael Vick, but the football community is pretty sure they will be getting a show.   Tonight the Eagles play the Jacksonville Jaguars. He's expected to play at some point with the first-team offense, sources say: Donovan McNabb will be the Eagles' quarterback for the first three quarters before Kevin Kolb takes over for the fourth. So where does this leave Michael Vick? What will his role be in the Eagles offense? If you play the part of Andy Reid tell me how you would use Michael Vick in your Eagles.           Keller Williams Real Estate 601 Bethlehem PikeBuilding B, Suite 100Montgomeryville, PA 18936Main Office: 215-631-1900Direct: 215-850-9640 · Contact Form  http://www.pahomesmontgomerycounty.com/
