Have you ever purchased something that you thought was a really outstanding buy? Then maybe you took it home, or told some of your friends about your great find, and your friends told you what a dumb-a-- you were for buying whatever it was. Buyer's remorse can happen for any product or service- from a piece of fruit, investment products, or even a house. For big ticket items, I think it's helpful to have a plan of action. So here are a few things you can do to prepare yourself from the negative self-talk you may generate from your own thoughts and negative feedback you may get from friends, relatives and co-workers: Make a list that describes key features of the item to be purchased. Add to the list the reasons that you are making the purchase. When you shop for the item, compare at lea...

  April 4-5, Open House 12-3 PM - 2903 Zurich, San Antonio TX 78230 Once again I will be holding an open house this weekend at 2903 Zurich in KB Home's Woods Of Alon (just south of Wurzbach on NW Military).  There won't be any Spurs players or free ice cream this weekend unfortunately, but I'll be there, so stop on in and say hello.  This 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home is situated on a green belt on two sides with great views of the community's lake.  A 1.5 story (the Overland floor plan), this home has recently been reduced in price to $335,479 and features laminate wood floors, upgraded kitchen, an additional upstairs bedroom, a spacious game room, and a beautiful porch on the back of the house with mature trees and a great view.  To learn more about this house, check out the listing inf...

photos courtesy of RMTip21, Amy the Nurse, and me. If you're in San Antonio, you love the Spurs. I'm not much of a basketball fan, I admit.  Since I'm from the cold confines of Philadelphia, I'm more of a hockey junkie.  Regardless of my feelings however, the Spurs are worshiped out here.  Well, now is your chance to meet Matt Bonner.  Saturday, March 21, 2009 between 1 and 3 PM, Matt will be hanging out at the H-E-B Alon Market at 8503 NW Military Highway, San Antonio, TX 78230 (map).  You can also meet local morning show radio personality, Woody from 94.1 KTFM.  Sounds great, right...? But wait!  There's more! They will also be handing out samples of H-E-B's Creamy Creations ice cream.  Since Spring has just arrived and we're already experiencing temperatures in the mid-80s, this wee...

Open house, come on over and say hello! I'll be holding an open house at 2903 Zurich, San Antonio, TX 78230 (KB Home's Woods Of Alon - NW Military, just south of Wurzbach Parkway) this weekend (January 17-18) from noon-3PM.  This is not my usual house in Woods of Alon for those of you that know my affinity for open houses there, but a larger 1.5 story/4 bedroom/3 bath/2,787 sq. ft. home on a corner lot with views of the man made lake and the green belt out back and to the side.  Feel free to stop in and say hello.  If you'd like to visit 2903 Zurich while you're there for a comparison, we can get that one opened up for you to view as well.

I had watched in amazement when Photosynth was first revealed. For those of you that haven't seen Photosynth before, let's start at the beginning (if you know what we're talking about, skip down a few lines). Photosynth is a project from Microsoft Live Labs that is absolutely mind-numbing. It takes photo viewing and video concepts to a whole new level. Watch this video from YouTube to see the concept and get an idea of what it does and once you've stopped drooling and saying "what the...?," let's get back to business. What a cool toy. After someone sent me the link to the video you just watched, I thought about how cool this was, but I didn't consider the potential. I just thought it was a neat "trick" that you could show your friends and toy around with. I'm a Mac user as well, so Pho...

2903 Zurich has just become available at Woods Of Alon. "The Overland" floor plan from the Trails Collection of KB Home, this house has the optional fourth bedroom upstairs. A total of four bedrooms and three baths, an open floor plan connecting the kitchen, dining room, and living room in one giant living area, and spectacular views make this an amazing "move-in" ready home in the Woods Of Alon community. Check out the views of the lake available from almost all the downstairs bedrooms (including the master) and relax on the covered patio out back. While sitting out side, enjoy the scenic views of the native trees that KB left behind while building the community (instead of the usual clear cutting of the land before construction). Easy access from this home to the walking trails throu...

A new home available for immediate move-in on Zurich at Woods Of Alon. Recently I received news that another house at KB Home's Woods Of Alon community would be entering the market as an inventory home.  I will get some photos of it this week if possible to show you a sneak peak of it, but in the meantime, I thought I'd send the news out.  Its a gorgeous 1 and 1/2 story 4 bedroom home, right on the edge of the community's greenbelt.  The back of the home faces onto the greenbelt, as does the right side of the house, meaning one side of the house has no neighbors.  Many of the windows face out to the greenbelt and offer great views of the man made lake that KB Home has built.  The covered patio out back was a smart upgrade as it allows for some relaxation while staring off towards the la...
