Lane's Blog - Looking out from the garage

By
Real Estate Agent - Century 21 Results Realty
Luckily I have wi-fi, and can get online from the garage. If given a choice, that is where I am. Between MLS searches, arranging marketing, and pre-viewing homes, I will try to get in a little welder time, or at least clean some of the tools from the last wrenching session.

  Ken is one of the best mortgage guys in the area...  We have worked together with several clients, and he makes the right things happen... the way they are supposed to happen.    Having the ability to use a down payment gift from a friend or family member is wonderful. In today's real estate an...

If you are suffering financial hardship, PLEASE make sure that you have your money in a different institution than ANY loans you might be behind on.  While I would say that the best policy is to pay all of the bills, if you are having a hardship, having a few hundred or thousand slip out of your ...

   Share Image by prorallypix via Flickr Trans-Am...  For most people, they think of Pontiac Trans-Ams…  Some think about the SCCA racing series.  I think about both… but the cars I think about are the Trans-Am racing cars from the late 1960s and early 1970s.

  Image via Wikipedia I like a little minimalism…  Back when I was a youngster, I had a few cars that were very bad at compromise.  They were fast… but less than comfortable.  I didn’t care… I wanted the performance.  I drove my autocross car as a daily driver.  Race on Sunday, Drive to Work on M...

I'll be there... first thing in the morning.  For those in the Atlanta area that aren't familar, it is an event put on by the Atlanta Board of Realtors and sponsored by FMLS.  It is our biggest local tradeshow... although the NAMAR show in the spring is catching up...  Anyway, it would be really ...

  Image via Wikipedia Last year I was in the midst of writing about some of the local businesses I try to frequent.  One of those was Millennium Cycle Works.  I dropped in one day (without my 4′ co-pilot) and talked for a minute with Ken, the owner.  After a moment to gather his thoughts, I shot ...

  Image by lane.bailey via Flickr I have been kind of expecting this, but of course it will take a couple of months to confirm… The Tax Credit did not kick the Gwinnett Market into gear… Instead, its expiration killed sales.  Looking over the last few months of sales we see that for 2010, sales w...

A couple of years ago I wrote a post about blandness.  I don’t like bland and I think most people agree that bland is… boring.  It applies to food, advertising, movies, art and anything else.  Maybe everyone won’t like the spice, but almost nobody will like a complete lack of spice.  But, I guess...

  Image by TeeMack Productions via Flickr I’m surprised I didn’t get to this one sooner… I have been a fan of surf music since I was a kid…  I love the guitar riff and the drums.  And, as a car guy, there are a LOT of great car songs from surf bands.  So, if only for the cool music, it is time to...

  Image by The Brain Toad via Flickr I like strippers…  That is going to make Google go nuts.  But before you rapidly click away, hear me out for a moment. Back in the late 1960s and early 1970s, the ‘Big 3′ used to produce a few cars that were heavy on the performance options and light on everyt...
