Going back to school this fall? Whether it is grade school, University, night classes, or online school we have some tips to make your back-to-school as great as it can be!

1). Buy new supplies! Even just having a new pencil case and notebook is great motivation to stay organized and work hard! There is something psychological about having fresh school supplies that makes people want to use them and use them well.

2). Sign up for your favorite stores’ email alerts! Although they are annoying for ninety-nine percent of the year, around back-to-school season they are your best chance at catching those great one-day sales for everything from supplies to clothing!

3). Spend a day off trying out your new commute! If you’re driving, see how long

Foreclosure. 

This daunting word haunts our television screens as we watch fictional, and sometimes real, people face losing everything. All of the love and care they put into making their house a home was for naught; now the bank owns it and they have to be gone by Monday. We feel sick hearing that word because everyone knows that foreclosure is not something you ever want to experience. So, what is it and how can you avoid it?

Foreclosure is when a homeowner loses ownership of their property to the bank. It's not that the bank ever owned the home, but when you can't pay back the bank, they take your assets. Typically foreclosure happens because homeowners have failed to pay monies owed on debts, particularly a mortgage. As you can see from the

We know you have seen the ads. Billboards proclaim 'WE WILL BUY YOUR HOME!' or 'Home Not Selling? Let us Buy!' These renegade real estate companies promise that if your home does not sell within a set number of days, they will buy it from you. It sounds like a good deal, but it really does not benefit you unless it is absolutely essential you be rid of your property right away. Here is why:

Typically the contracts for these deals state that the company will list your home for an agreed upon price for an agreed upon time. If your home does not sell within that amount of time, they will buy it from you for a different price. As previously mentioned, if it is crucial that you sell your home in the next sixty days these types of deals can be a last
