Still Under Water in Gold Canyon? Consider a Short Sale.

Distressed properties – those that are “under water” where more is owed on the property than will be available from the proceeds of a sale of the property – are thankfully far fewer than during the crash during the latter years of the previous decade. Still – some do exist – and Short Sales are still a viable option when faced with a “must sell” scenario of an “under water” property. Currently running at less than 3% of the closed transactions every month in our MLS, homeowners in that 3%, whether in Gold Canyon or another part of the valley, can still...

Phone calls that lasted for more than an hour, flirty smiles are exchanged. You feel good about him. Now is the million dollar question that you want to find out. Does he like you? Is he into you, or not? How to know the answer? What are the tell-tale signs that he is into you? Well, besides using your woman’s intuition which is not something I can describe here nor teach, I’ll do my best to “simplify” this complicated thing call “love”. 10 Signs That He Likes You 1. Watching the same movie twice He’s seen the movie.

One Bad Decision Can Cost a Hospital Millions

Things can go wrong without the right team in place I recently read an article that was attempting to explain the cost overrun experienced by a hospital during the launch of their new EMR. The article was clear on what caused the overrun but failed to communicate why the decision was made that created the cause. In many hospitals, emotions can run high fueled by attitudes of resistance to change. The pressures and stress associated with go-live can be a challenge to manage; however, allowing those forces to affect decision-making can have lasting adverse financial effects. When all planning, budget, constraints, and common sense that should be applied are set aside, you can almost always expect the worse. It may feel like appeasement is the right thing to do to relieve the stress, but it may not be the best thing. Sticking to the plan, and staying within the budget should always be the guiding factor that drives decisions even when the pressure is great. It’s unfortunate, but some decisions are based on problems that may not exist at all but are only perceived based on excessive negativity. Having an experienced team in place that can help make decisions based on fact is vital. Negotiating Skills Do Pay Off! When doing logistics, treat it like it’s your money Getting one of the best hotels in the city to give...
