What is a Pre-Foreclosure?

Welcome Back!

A question I get asked quite a bit is “what are those houses listed on zillow as a pre-foreclosure?

Here is a quick video with the answer to that question, click thru to check it out!


How Selling Your House Is Like Making Lasagna

How many layers are there in a lasagna?

There’s no right or wrong answer to that. Other than, “more than one” probably. Even two is pretty skimpy.

So, let’s say three is minimal for argument sake. (But, four or more is better.)

The number of layers probably just boils down to using up all the lasagna noodles and sauce you have, or getting to the top of the pan you have to use. No exact amount. Use what you’ve got.

But, if all you’ve got won’t stretch to make three layers in the size pan you have, perhaps you should use a smaller pan. At least have the three layers.

This isn’t a lasagna lesson.

Pi and the Constant Math of Home Pricing

Most of us are aware of what “Pi” is.  We learned about it in school, probably in junior high, and then we forget much more than it’s that number that goes on and on forever, with no end or solution. And we just know it as 3.14.  There’s certainly a lot more to it though.

For instance, it’s a “constant” ratio in circles. And, it’s an “irrational” number. They teach us that, too. Maybe that stuff stuck with you.  Maybe not.  For me, just knowing the 3.14 part was good enough to get through school. There’s no need now to think about it much beyond that. Pi probably isn’t going to affect you or me one way or another in life.

But then again, there is a rather “constant” and sometimes “irrational” number in real estate that does affect many people. And most people never learn about it in life…at least until they list their home for sale.
