Get rid of Flies

PineSolI do like the smell of Pine Sol and Flies HATE pine-sol. So I’m going to have to try this mix. Mix it with water, about 50/50 and put it in a spray bottle. Use to wipe counters or spray on the porch and patio table and furniture Drive them away!

10-05 WaterFeature DSC00598We were in the boat awhile ago taking a cruise on Cedar Creek Lake when we saw this amazing water fountain feature in the lakeside yard.  Owners are taking on landscaping projects to make their yards look different from their neighbors’.  At Cedar Creek Lake most people don’t spend alot of time and energy on the street side yard.  Most of the time and decorating is on the lake side.  I have seen fantastic outdoor kitchens, boathouses, firepits, swingsets and river rock streams, and outdoor pavilions.  Check out what the Realtor Magazine has to say about cookie-cutter lawns.

Interest Rates are DROPPING!

Quote

My friends, The Lending Partners just let me know that over the past week and a half we have continued to see interest rates fall to 2017 lows. Rates are mainly benefiting from geopolitical uncertainty and a cooling-off of investor optimism over the Trump administration’s fiscal policy path. The rates today on a 30 YR FIXED, 15 YR FIXED, and 5/1 ARM are below:

30 YR FIXED- 4%

15 YR FIXED- 3.25%

 5/1 ARM- 3.375%

 This is GREAT news heading into the busy months and summer! It will be interesting to see how rates hold up throughout the summer! You can read more about this recent drop in rates below.

Have you ever wished to save your gift Roses?

Quote

On Valentine’s day I got my first roses from grandchildren. They were lovely and smelled fantastic. I wanted to try an experiment that I read about on Pinterest.  THIS ONE WORKED. 

I cut the stem. Dipped it in cinnamon. Cut off the flower and remove leaves. Plant it in a pot. Put a glass jar over the stem for a couple of weeks. Just when I was ready to give up, I now have new baby roses growing. 

I’m so excited to see them growing and now I’m trying this with other kinds of plant cuttings.

Can you Refuse to Rent to Smokers?

Quote

Can you refuse to rent to smokers?

I manage rental properties for a client who doesn’t want people smoking on his property. If we deny a potential tenant’s application because he or she smokes, will this violate any federal fair-housing laws?

No, this will not violate federal fair-housing laws. Federal fair-housing laws make it illegal for the landlord to choose tenants based on their race, color, sex, national origin, religion, handicap, and familial status. However, people who smoke are not a protected class. A landlord can refuse to lease to potential tenants who smoke as long as the landlord consistently enforces such prohibition.
