Call me Jimmy Buffett. I grew up in Florida on the beach when Florida had less than half the population it has now. Although I am formal when I need to be, I am in Flip Flops, T Shirt, and Shorts at most other times, and a northern variation of that in the Winter up here. I am comfortable in my s...
I dont think that this was a secret to anyone. The Home tax credit has slowed down the market a bit. I certainly am noting less competition with offers. The big thing I have noticed is that I was bumping into other agants and their clients showing houses, in one case four agents at one showing, r...
Recently, I have been getting calls about payday loans (or so it seems from the internet blog sites). I have never taken a payday loan. In fact I am an invetsor not a consumer.

I think alot of that is the misconception that the percentage charged for listing a property all goes to the agent. In fact, I have seen that on the web from person who really don't un...
Lately, I have been getting a "gut" feeling that the days of buying houses for cheap and fliping them at a profit (wholesaling) are coming to a close in this cycle in many markets and certainly my own (DC & No. VA). I suspect there will always be value, especially after every Tom, Dick, and Harry...
