6 Tips For Real Estate iPhone Love



6 Tasty Tips+8 Tempting Apps For Real Estate iPhone Love

My Apple iPhone 3GS adventure actually began more than a few years ago with aJudy's Apple iPhone For Real Estate 20 Tasty Tips couple of Palm Pilots. I thought they were great until now!

Even though I’m an Apple newbie, I already love my  iPhone3Gs. The new iPhone was a Birthday present.

The launch date fell exactly 30 days after my real birthday, so I was counting the days along with the rest of the world and just barely resisted the temptation to stand in line in the predawn hours at the Apple Store in the King of Prussia Mall on June 19th.

Gallop On Over To Devon Pa-Devon Horse Show



Even if you’ve never ridden a horse or you don’t even have any intention of riding a horse you must gallop on over to the Annual Devon Horse Show And Country Fair in Devon, Chester County, Pa 19333  for a rollicking good time. Special equestrian events and Country Fair Events offer something for everyone.

There are so many fun things to do at the Devon Horse Show in Devon, Pa, that you won’t be sorry that you took my advice. Bring or borrow your favorite child to make the day all the merrier! Here are some of my photos from last year when I visited with my precious Granddaughter and her Mom and Dad.

Ride the Ferris wheel, an old fashioned merry go round, and of course you just must get a lemon stick, with a touch of sweet and a little pucker up all in one with a candy stick inserted into a fresh lemon, a Devon Horse Show tradition since 1896. Visit the regal stalls Read the rest of this entry »

New Appraisal Guidelines The Baby and The Bath Water



The Real Estate Blame Game Moves On To Appraisers

The Real Estate “Blame Game” has become our current national sport.  So far, we’ve raked the Buyers, the Realtors and the Brokers and the Mortgage Companies over the coals.  This week we’re moving on to the Appraisers and legislating the free flow of information.

As of May 1, 2009 there will be new property Appraisal guidelines but not Hear No Evil everyone agrees that we need new Appraisal guidelines as reported in the Wall Street Journal yesterday.

If it’s not the Realtors and the Broker’s fault for pricing and marketing real estate for what it would sell for, then maybe it’s the Appraisers “fault” for appraising the property according to the then existing market activity of what buyers were willing clamoring to pay for property.

Of course there is a need for some Mortgage and Lending reform and the National Association of Realtors supports the Mortgage Reform and Anti-Predatory Lending Act of 2009,  H.R. 1728. You can read  NAR President Charles McMillan’s testimony in support of Lending reforms with modification.

Under the new guidelines, Appraisers will no longer call me about one of my sold and settled listings to help them compare the features and benefits to one of their current “subject” properties. I will no longer be able to meet an Appraiser at my Sellers property to share the comparable sold’s that I used to price the property. The Mortgage Company will not be able to call the Appraiser for any reason, much less, to ask for a “rush” for a special relocating family trying to get their children into school before the start of the school year.

Things To Do A Chester County Walk In The Park



Chester County Pennsylvania~A Walk In The Park

Spring and the official Vernal Equinox , arrives March 20th 2009, and not a minute Johnny Jump Upstoo soon, in my opinion, and yours too I imagine. These charming Johnny Jump Ups can be found along a path as one of our earliest signs of Spring together with Crocuses and Forsythia. Even in December if it’s warm, but not this year.  If planted in a protected area, they’ll often reseed themselves.

A visit to the Philadelphia Museum of Art is a great way to begin your Spring walking.  Cezanne and Beyond – A Century of Great Artists Philadelphia Museum of Art – You will see more Cezanne and the artists Cezanne influenced, at the Philadelphia Museum of Art than if you went to Paris up to May 17th. This is an outstanding opportunity. Adults $14, Seniors $12, Children 12 and under Free.

*Birds chirping, a warm sunny day, Spring senses stirred and I begin to hear the call of the countryside. Chester County Pennsylvania Countryside to be specific. No one does a day in the country better than Chester County Pennsylvania.

*Try Longwood Gardens where you stroll either indoors or outdoors when you hear the call of Spring early as I do. Also, Valley Forge National Park has many places for a Spring walk, both natural and paved (keep in mind the Valley Forge Road Bridge closing for detours into the Park) .
