Okay so drones are the latest and greatest... or are they. I guess if you are listing Million dollar homes, or homes on a golf course or lake, then that would be great to feature. The openness of the landscapes, large sprawling estates, and huge McMansions. But drones aren't for every home. Ha! try to tell your seller who lives across the street from the trailer park. Or have the neighbors next door with their cars on blocks, and motor oil running down the driveway. Explain to them that want everything you can possibly do to video their 900 square foot home, and get the drones out while they video you videotaping that which should never be on video. Then there is the privacy issue ... just when you thought you could finally get out in the back yard and work on that tan... suddenly you h...

So I show up to the front door to speak to tenants of new home my client has just purchased, when I am greeted by this on the front door at the peep hole.... Say what you want, but instant panic set in.  OMG termites???!!  My clients just closed on this house yesterday.  I'm sick. So after staring at them for what seems like a year, and watching the "guy bugs" sitting around watching "2 queens battle it out like they are in a wet t shirt contest"  --- (tell me they don't look like they are taking bets? LOL) my brain finally kicks into gear and I pull out my phone to snap the picture an immediately send it to my favorite termite guy.  Don't laugh, you've got one too.So while I'm waiting for him to respond I visit Google right...

If you already have a VA mortgage at a set interest rate, you may think you're done. But, one of the most powerful features of a VA mortgage is the possibility of easily reducing your existing interest rate by getting what's called a "Streamline Refinance" or Interest Rate Reduction Loan (IRRRL).  This is a much different process than refinancing the whole loan, you are simply reducing the interest rate alone. A simpler process that can be completed without an appraisal AND without any out-of-pocket expenses. It's far simpler than the original loan because you don't need to get another Certificate of Eligibility. Effectively it's a scan for lower rates.  For example, if you have an existitng interest rate of 6% and   and if a lower rate is available, say 3.5%, you may qualify for a redu...
