The ARMs and plain old poor financial choices that have faulted many Americans in our country’s current “gotta have it now” state, have not just hurt the average working American, but also multi-millionaire celebrities as well.  Jose Canseco, Ed McMahon, Evander Holyfield, Michael Jackson & Courtney Love have all foreclosed on homes with mortgage balances up to $24.5 million.  Take a look at the homes and read the stories in their entirety @ http://money.cnn.com/galleries/2008/real_estate/0806/gallery.celebrity_foreclosures/index.html.

The Light at the end of the tunnel.  Shocking the Home Improvement Industry with Web 2.0

ss_blog_claim=963c4eee0512f2f38e706de64e7dc492Bidrealm.NET (http://www.bidrealm.net) is the social spark to the home improvement industry.  Think about it, virtually every aspect of business has been utilized on-line except the sole most vulnerable business on the planet, that being the home improvement industry.  Why do I say vulnerable?  I say this because in my experience in business banking and working closely with many contractors, builders, landscapers, and other home improvement professionals, & Co-Founder Travis White’s experience flipping homes, we have witnessed how inconsistent a home improvement professional’s business can truly be.  Working one job all the while not knowing when the next one will come or how much it will pay.  Will you even have enough to pay your own workers and in a timely fashion?  These are questions that run through home improvement professional’s minds on a daily basis.  Bidrealm.NET (http://www.bidrealm.net) is here to alleviate that anxiety by injecting the use of the Internet and Web 2.0 into the industry to make it more efficient & consistent.  Register for FREE @ http://www.bidrealm.net, & search for & bid on available home improvement projects in your area through our innovative & interactive reverse auction style site.  Search, Bid, Get Awarded Projects & always keep a steady pipeline of contracted jobs.  Now that’s the way to stay consistent and build your business.

Gone With The Wind, & Getting Paid For It June 17, 2008

When discussing “Going Green”, most of us are familiar with alternative energy sources such as solar and electric.  But what about wind?  The truth is that individuals can easily understand solar and electricity, and how they can actually use the two in their daily lives to conserve energy and be less dependent on oil because these two sources of renewable energy are always in the mainstream.  But wind energy is another animal all together for most.  Most people, when they think of wind energy, they picture hundreds of gigantic windmills together alone in the desert of Nevada, Arizona or California that are ran by major corporations and government to supply energy to entire cities.  I am here to tell you that you too can support and use wind energy on a much small scale, and that is more beneficial to you and your pocket.  Skystream has developed the Skystream 3.7 wind generator that connects directly to your home and generates power whenever the wind is blowing. 

The Skystream stands between 34 & 70 feet tall & is 170 pounds.  It comes with a 5 year warranty and is certified fo usage in the U.S. & Canada.

THE BEST PART:

This is especially helpful in our current times of a down economy when all of us are trying to save as much as we can and cut back where needed.  During times of high winds, the Skysteam can produce excess energy that you home does not need.  In this case, depending on your utility, your meter can spin backward and give you a energy credit toward your next bill.  Check your local utility companies, because in some areas, when you generate extra power, you can then sell it back to your local power company and earn some extra income.  You can even earn possible rebates & tax incentives for using wind energy.

Let’s all BE ALTERNATIVE and save energy, the planet and our pockets.  Because every, watt & every dollar counts.

Fans of Trademark Properties & Real Estate Pros June 12, 2008

Tell me fans, what has happened to Real Estate Guru, Richard Davis & his Trademark Properties Team?  For those of you whom don’t know, Richard Davis is the founder of the successful full-service real estate firm dubbed Trademark Properties based out of Charleston, SC.  Mr Davis developed the popular television series on TLC called Flip That House, and later created a new show called The Real Estate Pros.  Those of us whom are fans know that Richard & his talented team including Ginger, are knowledgeable and in my opinion, brought house flipping to the mainstream with their first TV show.  Flip that house has since changed a great deal.  We have seen a team from Boston made up of an ex-male model and NFL football player, a total of three different Atlanta, Ga based teams, and probably the next most successful team under Richard Davis in Armando Montelongo, which has also broken up since it first aired.  But that is another story.

We have been watching re-runs for far too long.  What has happend to the new episodes?  If anyone has any info on where us FLIP FANS can get our daily fix of Richard Davis & the Real Estate Pros, including any airing times or TV channels, please let us all know.

Check out The Real Estate Pros @ http://tlc.discovery.com/guides/property/real-estate-pros/real-estate-pros.html

Paint your House “GREEN” & your life @ Bidrealm.NET June 10, 2008

“Going Green” is the “IN” thing right now, as it should be.  We as human beings, and especially as Americans, have consistently contributed to let’s face it, destroying our planet.  Between Factory smoke stacks, gas guzzling automobiles and litter, we are killing ourselves by emitting harmful gasses into the atmosphere and using all of our natural resources. 

On a side note, this is something that has been burning me up for the last couple of months, and there is no reason for it.  Here in Raleigh, NC where I live, and where our company Bidrealm.NET Inc. (www.bidrealm.net), is located, I live in a neighborhood that is a massive subdivision with thousands of homes and subsequently very small yards.  Here in Raleigh, we had been on a water restriction due to shortage of rain along with mass water consumption for a while, and it was just lifted recently.  But, there are still the few geniuses in my neighborhood who insist on watering their 2X2 lawns, with an automatic sprinkler that stays on all the time and basically waters the street.  In 102 degree heat mind you.   News flash people, the street does not grow.  You are wasting water for no good reason. 

SOLUTION

Simply put, GO GREEN.  This means:

1.  Don’t waste water

2.  Don’t drive unnecessarily

3.  Recycle

4.  Reuse

5.  Use energy efficient (http://www.energystar.gov/) appliances in your home

6.  Use energy efficient light bulbs

7.  Carpool or purchase a hybrid automobile

8.  & MUCH MUCH MORE

For more information on what you can do to help save our planet and the lives of our children’s children, go to http://planetgreen.discovery.com/.  Planet Green by. the Discovery Channel is a website and TV station developed to help us learn about how to stay GREEN.  At Planet Green’s website you can see how to stay GREEN in your everyday life with everything from fashion and beauty, food and health, to travel, work, and home and garden.   Visit there website, and check your cable or satellite provider for their television show listings.  Get informed and inform others on how we can be more planet conscious.

And, when scheduling your next home improvement project for FREE @ www.bidrealm.net, tell your home improvement professional that you want to “keep it green”.

As I mentioned to you in part 1 of this series, my wife has taken the bull by the horn and is making home improvements in our house left and right, and her favorite thing is her drill.  With a good cordless power drill, you can just about fix or improve anything, with the right attachment.  Barbara K @ www.barbarak.com, has developed a website that specializes in TOOLS FOR WOMEN.  You can view information in the latest hammers, wrenches, pliers, glue guns, power tools and other tools.  Currently Barbara K has posted directions on how to install an attic fan.  Between me and you, I hope she posts a “How To” on installing a ceiling fan, because I have a new one in the box that has been sitting around for a year waiting to get installed.  Of course at this point we all know that my wife will no doubt get that going before long.  My wife is an attorney who loves to do home improvement projects.  She works hard at the court all day, and then handles business at home too.  She is the new Handywoman.  So too all you men out there, give your Handywoman her credit where credit is due.  Not only does she know more and do more than you think, she may also know more and do more than you.  Step your game up.  Bidrealm.NET is here to help with that.  No matter what your home improvement familiarity is, from novice to expert, register for FREE at www.bidrealm.net, and let a certified, bonified pro compete for your business.  Let go of the hassle so that you can focus on the rest of your life’s many decisions.  @ Barbara K’s website, be sure to checkout the “How to project of the week”.  In addition, look at industry related books and news, & even join the gift registry.  So, for the Handywoman bride to be of 2008, don’t settle for just the typical wedding registry @ Bed Bath & Beyond, Target to Belk, add www.barbarak.com too.
