UP, UP AND AWAY!

I feared to turn forty.  I was nervous about the number.  I found myself dreading the climb over the hill instead of reflecting on the roads I had previously traveled or the glorious views along the way. To help cope with the “BIG 4-0,” I wanted to getContinue reading “UP, UP AND AWAY!”

YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR

During our first face-to-face meeting, my buyer looked me straight in the eye and stated, “Val, I watch those Home Shows, and the REALTOR® always shows a house above the buyer’s price range.”  Showing frustration, she asked, “Why do they do that?”  Noticing that her guard was slightly elevated, I explained (for one), that’s theContinue reading “YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR”

Time to Play

I know it’s over 100 degrees outside and the lawn furniture is melting, but it’s summer vacation and we need to play outside! Remember when we were kids?  We played until the street lights came on.  It didn’t matter what the temperature was like back then, we played all day to avoid chores!  (oops… didContinue reading “Time to Play”

The Mortgage Murder

“You did WHAT before closing day?!?” Here’s a list of things that can KILL YOUR MORTGAGE LOAN APPROVAL: 1)  Car shopping- “BIG NO-NO!” Once you have a mortgage pre-approval, it’s not a good idea to shop for a sports car.
