Time to leave?

A few years ago I knew a guy who was cashing out and moving to Texas. In the back of my mind I was thinking hhhhmmm, why would he want to move to Texas? Now I hear about more and more people leaving California and buying Dallas Real Estate.
My sister has been there several times, and loves it. She takes her vacations there year after year, and I think out of curiosity the next time she goes, which should be very soon knowing her, I will ask her to pick up some real estate magazines for me so I can check out some Dallas Homes for Sale .
I am a real estate magazine junky, but if you would rather just see Dallas Homes for Sale through the internet you can click the links.

It can be confusing to buy real estate these days. The links above should have some very helpful information for you. Maybe you are not in a position to buy now, but it is never to late to think about how you want to spend your retirement years.

Christmas lights in April?

No Need to Break Your Back Putting the Christmas Lights Up This Year If You Buy This Foreclosure!

I spend a lot of time looking for houses online. Probably too much time. I love it like a wino loves his Two Buck Chuck from Trader Joe's. It relaxes me, and at least I'm not stumbling around and yelling at the neighbors with slurred speech: "Hey put those guns away or I'll pall the colice!"

One site that is helpful a list of Free REO foreclosures . This service is free and one of the better ones I have found. It's very easy to use, and do a foreclosure search in the city of your choice. Every state is on the map, and there are more cities to choose from than you likely have the time for.

Check it out and do some searching for some Real Estate Owned Foreclosures Click on any state then you will see the cities from that state. Its fun to do just for pure entertainment. They now have pictures so you can get a general idea of what the house looks like.

So sit down at your computer, pour yourself a glass of Two Buck Chuck, and search away.
Use your imagination and do a search for Free Foreclosures.
We all know there is no such thing as a free foreclosure though. But there are some good deals right now.

Carolina on My Mind

Smoky Mountains

I have never been to the Smoky Mountains, but have always held them in a mystical sort of way in my mind. Pictures, as always, never do a location enough justice. Nonetheless, I sometimes like to imagine what it would be like to live in different parts of the country. It is a wanderlust that I come by rightfully from my father.

I am always trying to convince my wife to do travel nursing. It would be great to go for 2 to 3 months at a time to get the feel of a new region. Although I am not a fan of apartment living, for the obvious reasons (noise, smells, people) I think I could tolerate anything if I am enjoying myself, or at the worst know I am only obligated for 60 to 90 days.

When an advertiser for Durham, NC Apartments showed up in my inbox, I could not help but be interested. Their apartments look very clean and well maintained. They also have High Point, NC Apartments and Charlotte, NC Apartments. Some of the 3 bedroom floor plans have nearly 1200 sq. ft.

The grass may not be greener on the other side, but it is always good to get out and experience life while you are able.

Boston real estate does not seem to be hit as hard as other areas of the country, especially like California. Here is my take on it:

1. Boston Real Estate never had the overinflated jump that other areas did.
2. There is a demand for Boston luxury real estate there.
3. Boston is a historic and cultural place to live with plenty to do and see.
4. Even Boston condos have held up pretty well considering that condos seem to take the first hit.
When you are ready to buy visit Bushari Group Real Estate

All I ever write about is California real estate, because it is what I know. Do any of you have insight on the east coast market? I'm curious
