In today’s housing market, we are seeing high demand and low inventory — and when this happens, prices naturally rise. Thanks to these home sale prices appreciating at near-historic rates, certain challenges have arisen with regards to appraisals. For the last few months, it has become more and more common for an appraisal to come in below the contract price on a home. Chief appraiser for CoreLogic Shawn Telford explains, “Recently, we observed buyers paying prices above listing price and higher than the market data available to appraisers…this difference is known as the appraisal gap.” Put simply, because of skyrocketing buyer demand, prospective homeowners are often willing to pay over asking to secure their dream homes. However,…

The New Year is upon us, presenting itself as a fresh chapter in the book called "Our Life." Every year many of us try to figure out how to make the coming year the best one yet while reflecting on all of the things we didn't accomplish in the last year. Although we shouldn't define our lives by each year that passes, we can create a plan to have a killer year to come. But, instead of adding the pressure by making New Year's Resolutions, make this coming year about evolutions. Resolutions are often broken because they are intangible to sustain for an entire year (i.e., I will never eat sugar again). A list of evolutions is a positive reminder, meant to keep you on track rather than punish you for any decisions you have made in the past. To help you…

dog in rental unitTo be quite honest, in my close to 30 years in property management, I've never had a problem with pets. My problems have always been with the pet's owners.

For example, it is usually not the pet who fails to change the litter box and it isn't the pet's idea to have 8 dogs in one apartment. Yes, that has actually happened to me. I had bought a duplex once, with two one-bedroom units, where I inherited a tenant with one dog who suddenly had a record-setting eight pups. The funny thing was that my tenant decided she wanted to try and keep them all. People are crazy. Obviously, the idea of turning a one-bedroom apartment into a kennel didn't work out very well.

Off on a family vacation this summer?

You can still train.

Yep, not only is it possible, but it can be the kick we need to rekindle our passion for running again.

Some of my best runs and races have occurred on vacation. I’ve run a 35k trail race in Australia, a half marathon in Palm Springs, a 10k in the Adirondacks, and many others along the way. I’ve run along the beach, in the mountains, and on beautiful river paths throughout Europe.

There's no better way to take in the sights, in my opinion.

At the same time, I am very cognizant of the fact that time alone and away with my family is special and I don't want to infringe upon that.

After all, my husband and kids don't want to spend their vacation time waiting for me to finish a…
