Interested in better family relationships, a better job, or improved health?

Did you say YES to at least one of these?  I did!

My good friend is organizing a CHAMPION’S WORKSHOP presented by Klemmer and Associates.  I didn’t know who K&A was, so I googled http://www.klemmer.com/ Here is what I found…

“Our workshops produce results for corporations and individuals because they explore beliefs around commitment, loyalty, communication, honesty, success, leadership and many other key issues. Once people “see” things differently, they automatically behave differently. This is what distinguishes us from purely “motivational” work which produces a temporary high. People are inspired, but because it is experiential they literally view life differently, and it lasts. Sustainable  results are a key to change.”

I am attending.  Would you like to join me?

5 Confessions of a First-Time Home Buyer

I know a lot about real estate – now. But when I bought my very first home, I knew nothing about real estate and hadn’t even starting working in the field. In fact, I was like any other brand-new home buyer out there: fired-up, overeager and completely uninitiated.

So, I made a mistake or two. Or twelve, give or take. Many of these were mistakes I didn’t even realize I’d made until a few years down the line. Fortunately for me, none of my first-time home buying mistakes were disastrous – and fortunately for you, I’m going to share them here, so you don’t have to repeat them!

Here are five lessons I learned in the course of buying my first home, so all you first-timers don’t have to. (Agents and homeowners, please share your lessons in the comments, too!)

Confession #1:  I would never have found my house searching in what I thought was my price range.

Buying a Home Wont Get Much Cheaper | AOL Real Estate

Buying a home may never get any cheaper than this. Several housing experts are predicting that this year will be the last chance for bargain hunters to cash in on the best deals of the weak housing market.

With home prices down 34% nationally since 2006 and mortgage rates at historic lows, homes have never been more affordable — but it wont stay this way for much longer.

Stuart Hoffman, chief economist for PNC Financial Services, said he expects home prices to flatten out by the third quarter and start climbing by next year.

A number of factors will help bolster the housing market, he said, including a decline in the number of foreclosures and continued job growth. In addition, homebuyers will have better access to mortgages as they get their finances in order and improve their credit scores.
