Mortgage Fraud: Advice from a Real Estate Agent

The Real Estate market is in an upswing trend. We are starting to see multiple offers, full price or above asking prices, and quick closings. What happens in this type of market is that buyers have to make on-the-spot decisions if they want the property they are interested in. This leaves the possibility wide open for mortgage fraud.

Don’t get caught up in it this go around. I am sharing my Yahoo! Published Article on Mortgage Fraud that I wrote in a previous hot Real Estate market, because it is relevant now and it will educate you going into this new market trend.

Hashtag THIS

20130210-093821.jpgI have just one question for the Blogosphere today:

Exactly when did the “pound sign” revert to being called the “hashtag?”

I realize Twitter is responsible for this paradigm shift, but now I’m confused. Are all those companies out there going to redo their automated telephone menus? Because I’m supposed to enter my account number, and then press the “pound key” not the “hashtag.”

Okay, that was two questions…I apologize.

Thanks, I’m better now! -love, Winnie


Here is the latest update on my Schnauzer Baby:

Hi all! Mama said you were concerned about me, so I wanted to let you know I’m stabilized on my insulin & new special diet. The bladder stones are gone, the stitches out, and Mama & Daddy will spend $70 a month from now on for my new kibble. No more carrots or doggie treats, but that’s ok. I’m back to running around all happy and goofy on the farm, but still shy about having my picture taken. I’m even barking at my shadow again – Mama hasn’t heard me bark much through the illness, so she seems happy about that. See how Schnauzer-esque I am?
Thanks for stopping by!

IDEAS: “Most difficult… Writer’s block… Run out of ideas… Yada yada yada…” (not an issue for this writer!) Continue reading
