FHA Loan Changes - Good Idea? Yesterday, I re-blogged a post about FHA loans, originally written by Ken Cook, one of the lenders I really trust when it comes to FHA information and advice.  I had read his article with great interest, as any change in any lender's rules, regulations, or requiremen...

  Thanks Ken! As usual, Ken Cook, does a great job breaking down some of the latest expected changes to FHA loans.  I find it shocking that everyone ran around saying we need to help clear the inventory by extending and expanding the First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit and now they're thinking about...

  Donna Galinsky isn't the only one. Donna's post about homes that are under marketed or poorly listed is something I've spoken about before with clients, agents, and brokers.  I see it happen too.  Seems we all see them from time to time.  What many non-Realtors® don't know is that the Realtor® ...

photo courtesy of crd! Let the madness ensue. I'm not much of a fan of Black Friday, I can't remember the last time I actually went out for it.  My wife braved a few crowds today and actually wound up buying a few things we needed, but I stayed home.  What I did do was work on my real estate bus...
