I have seen a handful of members ask about places to get free photos and graphics. Someone recently asked about non copyrighted photos. I don't think here is such a thing as non copyrighted, but there is a thing such as " no copyright restrictions", and some even allow you to use their free photo...

 I am not really a fan of co-signing because I have heard so many stories about a borrowers mother or father who co-signed for them getting stuck with paying a mortgage they can't really afford because the son or daughter they co-signed for either decided to break up, or one of them lost their jo...

But everytime it does happen, both agents and homeowners can learn from these crimes. In this case, I thought it was strange that a buyers agent showed up ahead...

 The Governor of Virginia declared the month of January Radon Action Month. Radon has been found to be the 2nd leading cause of cancer in people who don't smoke. Many homebuyers will skip the radon testing when buying a home. I know there are many people that just don't believe radon is anything ...
