Memorial Day Weekend 2013 Please take a minute to remember the true reason for Memorial Day this weekend. Without those that gave their lives for our freedom, we wouldn't be able to live the lives we have. Also, be safe out there. A lot of people are traveling all over the country because it's a ...
Plan Your Home Inspection For A Rainy Day! While it's a rare thing to be able to schedule your home inspection around the weather report, if you have a choice between a sunny day and a potentially rainy one, pick the rainy day. On sunny days, it might be a little more fun for the inspector to tak...
Do I Want This Listing?  Hypothetical situation, of course. I get a phone call. Seller wants me to sell their house. They owe $X, and want to put it on the market for $X + 20%.

500,000 Points! It just occured to me. I was soooo fired up to hit the 500,000 point milestone, I forgot to write a quick blog about it! I've been hammering away lately, trying to reach this goal. You know what happens at 500,000 points here on ActiveRain? You don't have to pay any more! I was so...

They were having a whole subdivision sale, so they were all pretty close to each other. I noticed a few things... First, you can get some things pretty cheap compared ...
Happy Mother's Day - 2013! Just wanted to take a minute and say Happy Mother's Day to everyone. To all the happily married Moms, not-so-happily married Moms, the divorced Moms and  single Moms for a variety of reasons. Happy Mother's Day. To the Dads out there that are raising the kids, for any a...
What Does BATVAI Mean?  While you're looking at properties online or on a listing sheet, there's a section that explains some of the better characteristics of the property, in limited detail. There are only so many characters allowed in our MLS for the descriptions, so you'll see a lot of abbrevi...
Old School - 5.11.13 Happy Saturday, Everyone! It got really windy a little while ago. Looks like a storm might be rolling in. I don't mind storms, really, as long as the power stays on.
