Being a city girl, I judge how well an area is doing economically by the businesses that are prevalent (existing) as well as businesses moving in. Of course, construction is always a key sign, but it has to be "growth" oriented not just - "we're building another strip mall here or we're building more houses there".
So, when I see a sign go up for a national chain business - I get excited. It signals growth both economically and demographically.
Most are unaware that many of the national chains require an area to reach or obtain a certain population count before they will open a franchise in that area.
In our area, we've been short (at least in my opinion) on decent breakfast locations - yes we have the waffle house and a few local eateries -…

Panama City Beach is a very popular tourist destination, as well as the home to “the spring break capital of the world.” However, homes in Panama City Beach, particularly Panama City Beach condos, have become a prized choice for homeowners desiring to purchase Panama City Beach real estate.…

Let your guests help.
Many hosts never let their guests lift a finger, but if you receive offers to help cook or clean, you should accept them. Overnight visitors feel more at home if they can participate in your everyday activities. For instance, meal prep offers an opportunity for casual, one-on-one interaction and brings people closer together.
Planning every single minute of your guests' trip may leave them feeling rushed and exhausted. To ensure that your guest can relax, refrain from micromanaging their visits. Suggest activities (a stroll on the boardwalk, a shopping excursion, relaxation on the beach), but let your guests determine their schedule.

The real estate market appears to be rebounding after imploding during the financial crisis. While it is true that more homes are coming on the market and prices are generally rising across the country, there are still markets in which it is harder to sell. These include vacation homes, condominiums and other homes that are targeted to specific buyers. Offering incentives can be a great way to make your home more attractive to potential buyers and move it off the market more quickly.
Buyer incentives are essentially anything you as the seller agree to do to make it easier for your buyer to complete the sale. For instance, you might agree to carry the financing, especially if you are selling a second home or vacation home and won't need the equity in…
