Why Foreclosure? You Do Have Options To Avoid It In Desert Hills

Although we no longer see the levels of Short Sales that we did a few years ago in Desert Hills, Notices of Default continue to be issued, meaning that yet another Desert Hills property is on the path towards foreclosure at auction on the courthouse steps. Suzanne and I wonder why the owners would allow the property to go to foreclosure, rather than investigate alternatives that may be mutually beneficial to themselves and their lenders. Not all properties heading for foreclosure are necessarily “under water” – which theoretically means they could be sold via a “traditional” sale rather than a “short sale”...

How Much Force Can Our Bones Handle Before They Break

You have known all along that your bones are the strongest part of your body. As they are assigned to give your body a structure, to hold your posture up and to protect your internal organs, your bones have to maintain their strength at all times. Of course, you cannot prevent external and unexpected circumstances from damaging your bones. But as much as you can, you can prevent it from happening. Probably one of the best ways which you can protect your bones is to know just how much force they are capable of handling before they reach their breaking point. Your bones are really strong. In fact sometimes they are even considered as stronger than steel. But in principle, if you divide your bones by cubic inch sizes each can handle the weight of any object equivalent to 19,000 lbs or approximately 8,626 kilos. However, considering force requires a different understanding. As most experts say, your bones can handle weight in various ways depending on the force with which they are delivered. The more force you apply to a bone, the easier it is to break it. In some studies, it was found out that bones can handle about 3,300 Newton of force if thrown into a rib and up to 4,000 Newton if released onto the femur. The ribs can take a smaller amount of force because...

How do you place a PRICE on a home anyway?

Scott Godzyk “Testing a market at a higher price can settle your mind from asking “could we have got more?” but does waste the best 2 weeks of listing, with that being the first 2 weeks on the market.”Right on target – and – re-blog! As part of the Active Rain challenge, today we discuss “How we place a value on a property.” Some of the toughest parts of listing a home are when a home seller has an unrealistic view of what the value of their home is. The fact is over priced homes for sale are not selling...
