As fraud savvy I believe I am, I now know I have to remind myself daily I have Caller-id for a reason on all my telephones.  A couple of days ago I got an early morning call waking me up out of my good sleep.  I looked at the caller-id, and it said NO-NAME.  Normally, I would not answer the call, and just wait for them to leave a message.  The other morning in my waking up Fog I answered the call.  The Caller with an Indian accent announced He was calling from Microsoft.  He told me their computer systems alerted them to call me because my computer was in danger of crashing within a couple of days.  He asked me to turn on my computer so he could show me where I had errors and warnings.  Still in my Fog I complied and followed his instructions as he showed me, and told me if I had more t...

Fall Fixes NOT to Nix   While spring may be the time for cleaning, fall is surely the time for fixing. Simple improvements can save money in utility bills as well as prevent costly repairs in the future. Like a well-played game of football, the homeowner needs a good playbook to get ahead in the game. The trick is, by the time it is October many areas might be into the first quarter -- well on the way to frigid temperatures - so prioritize and use this valuable time to the best advantage.   Play it Safe   A good bet is "Safety First." Start simple: look at entrances and exits in and around the home and consider how they may be affected by the change in seasons. Look at safety issues around moisture, temperature and light. Are there areas that are particularly dark that need more lightin...

Hiring Help: From "How To" to "Hurrah!"   Whether you are in over your head or juggling too many tasks, hiring help can be a great idea. Projects can benefit from specialized expertise, more work can be accomplished at one time, and as a homeowner you can step back from the tasks at hand to get a wider perspective. The time and energy you save may more than offset the expense.   However, trouble ensues when the wrong help is hired. Establishing what you want to accomplish is essential, so size things up thoroughly. When looking at a specific project or problem, you might benefit from having a few people look at it and offer ideas of how they might approach a solution. Sometimes the first ideas are not the best, and as you look at issues, new priorities emerge. Are you looking for an int...

It's September and you are selling your home entering into the fall and winter months. With light dwindling and temperatures dropping, evaluating your home with regard to warmth is a smart idea. Homes that are warm in the winter (and cool in the summer) are highly desirable - and achievable, if the savvy homeowner knows where to look and what to do to control the interior environment. When showing a home in the fall and winter months, pay attention to how warm you feel in the home, how the spaces are heated, how to control the heat and moisture, the presence of natural light, and how warm they are to the eye. When showing a home during these months, you will want to ensure that the warming aspects of the home stand out. The Obvious - How's it Heated? Understanding the heating system of ...

"Cash 4 Keys" is a familiar term for Realtors who list foreclosures.  It means the Lender who has foreclosed on the property has hired a Realtor to negotiate with Owner to clean-up, clean-out, and cooperate with moving out of the home in exchange for some cash to help ease their moving expenses. Working in the Chicago South-side urban marketplace I am some times called upon by Realtor friends who fear these marketplaces to meet with these distressed Owners, tour the home, take photos, give them a check for their efforts, meet with Locksmiths to change the locks, and install a lockbox. It is a natural instinct for me to be very aware of my surroundings, and watch for any surprises. Yesterday I got a surprise and found myself so angry with myself for freezing like I did. I had finished ta...
