I love real estate

I love real estate… ask anyone and they will tell you. Once I start talking about it, I cannot seem to stop.

Over time it seems I have answered some questions so many times that it only seemed logical to write it all down some place in case someone out there on the Internet stumbled across my little blog.

Is now a good time to buy?
Should I sell now or rent my house out until the market bounces back?
What is an escalation addendum?
Do you know where I can find a short-term rental?

Give me some time and you will find the answer to these questions and more on this little blog.

Have a question? Feel free to ask, I will give an unbiased answer!
