Extreme Makeover Home Edition

I enjoyed watching a television show called Extreme Makeover Home Edition. It is so cool to see actors come together with people of the community to build or rebuild a home for a deserving family. I love seeing people receive gifts and blessings. It is a joy to receive gifts but it’s even more fun to help give gifts. I love this show and how ABC and many other companies come together to lavish people with a home and the furnishings to go with it.

I love being a REALTOR to help people realize their dreams of home ownership or to improve their present situation.

Can We Rename Short Sales?

I have been a part of several “short sales” in the past couple of years and I think it’s time to rename them.

First the only thing short about them is the price is “short of payoff”. They are actually a pretty long process. When I think of something being called short, I think of brief. So to think of a new name is tough….what about “long-less sale”. It probably won’t work, but we must keep in mind that a short sale is anything BUT short in reference to time.
Some lenders are working to stream line this process, but just ask any seller or buyer that has been involved in one and you’ll hear all sorts of frustrating comments. Unfortunately, with our economy still struggling to get growing, short sales will probably be here for a good while.
If you are on the verge of losing your home, you need to call the mortgage company and get all the info you can to see if you qualify for a short sale. It is a tough process, but less damaging to you than foreclosure.

Sun Is Always Shining

The sun finally came out today! I must say it seems like forever since we’ve had a day full of sunshine. Our weather pattern has definitely be mostly cloudy. I was reminded though that the sun is even shining when the clouds here are dark. I guess it all begins with our attitude. Our perspective maybe cloudy, but if we will just remember the truth of the matter is that the sun shines above the darkest clouds.

Just saying….

I Love Sunday's!

I love Sunday! It’s a crazy day generally speaking. My family and I attend church at Southern Hills Christian Church on Hwy. 113 in Carrollton. I lead worship there a couple times each month. I thoroughly enjoy spending time with my church family. I also enjoy Sunday lunch – often at my in-laws home. I usually squeeze in a short nap before showing property in the afternoon. Sunday is pretty good day to show property because a lot of buyers are enjoying an off-day from work. All in all Sunday is one of my favorite day’s of the week!
