I am busy - like 2005-2006 busy.  Everything I have been working on is happening at once even....A SALE THAT IS CLOSING EARLY! How long has it been since that's happened?  It's not because things are workng better - it's just that the lenders and buyers finally have no more excuses and are having...
Here in farming country the harvest is beginning.  Soon trucks hauling wheat potatoes onions and other crops will be everywhere on the roads.  Big hay swathers are moving around now, the hay market is great the weather is perfect finally and they're "making hay while the sun shines".  Like onions...
I had a listing appointment yestrerday, I thought it would be easier than other recent ones since the prospective seller is an astute investor.  I was wrong again, I had the comparables with me and the bad news about pricing was a shock to her.  When it's your own house and your own security, bli...
We are back from a week's vacation!!  We drove from our home in Eastern Oregon, to Dallas attended a college reunion (college is defunct- first reunion ever, hard to recognize people after 43 years - lol), and drove back.  Memories, little Thai restaurant in Colorado, out in the sticks, two lane ...

My buyers signed last Wednesday, May 4, today is May 10, I am waiting to have it confirmed that yes we are funding today.  It's been a week. Too Bad so sad, next?  Yes but, what can I do about this other than complain,  I can't sue, don't have the money time or energy.  Don't want to be the "test...
