Attention!!!!

There are TOWNHOMES in inner city Baltimore, Maryland near the harbor selling for $1,000,000.  The rich are buying, while the poor are dying.  Listen up people, there is no reason why a Metropolis city with a working harbor, thriving businesses, Professional Football and Baseball teams, Johns Hopkins Hospital and Universities, that is located only a couple of hours away from our nation’s capital should struggle this way.  People are moving in, such as President Bush’s newly married daughter Jenna, but they are being sure to keep their distance from the real dirt that is Baltimore.  This city has become synonymous with poverty, drugs & crime.  The city of Baltimore started their little famed “Believe”campaign years ago, yet we see very little action taken or progress made in rebuilding this stricken city.  $1 million homes still sit just steps away from burned out row houses and boarded up buildings.  Most of the residents of Baltimore City rent, yet the buildings are nowhere near up to code.  Are the landlords of the tenement buildings being held accountable?

We talk a lot about home improvement on this blog.  But it is now time to give back, get serious and speak on a topic that is near to both Bidrealm.NET founders. 

We are challenging local residents, contractors, builders, and others to network and do what you can to save Baltimore & yourselves.  Follow in the footsteps of Bidrealm.NET co-founder, Travis White, and flip these homes, bring out their value, rent them to someone whom needs it during this recessive economy, and make some money for yourself and stimulate the market in the process.  Baltimore is a hidden gem and has much more potential than its given credit for.

Famous for Crab Cakes, The Inner Harbor, Ray Lewis and the Ravens, Cal Ripken Jr. and the Oilers, and even Sisco and Dru Hill.  There’s a lot to be proud of here.   Not just Fells Point and the harbor, but the heart of Baltimore, where the real citizens live everyday.

Let’s save a City

To be continued……………………………..

Richard Davis- TV, Baseball, Lawsuit, & King of the Flip July 31, 2008

TV

Richard Davis, the President & CEO of Trademark Properties of Charleston, SC has proven time and time again that he is the King of House Flipping and an overall good guy.  If you have not yet seen it, be sure to catch the reruns on TLC of the episode of Real Estate Pros called "Homerun for Trademark" when Trademark Properties took on a project that was nothing short of honorable in restoring the home of late baseball great, Shoeless Joe Jackson whom was banned from the game in 1920 for alleged conspiracy to fix the world series.  This great deed was spawned by one of Richard’s sons, a baseball player too.  In true Trademark fashion, Richard and his team of Real Estate Pros took the project down to the wire after cutting the house in half and moving it to a new location and restoring it.   But as always, he delivered on time, and with quality work that Shoeless Joe would be proud of. 

BASEBALL

In this same episode, Richard being the baseball fan that he is, managed to help a fallen baseball hopeful and purchase a minor league team, all in a day’s work.  Former MLB draft pick Josh Hamilton, whom may be formally known for his previous drug and alcohol abuse which eventually led to the demise of his career, is a good friend of Richard’s.  Richard assisted Josh with work while training to return to the league, and acted as a positive mentor.  Josh Hamilton has since become sober, changed his life, gone on to play for the Texas Rangers, and is an All-Star in Major League Baseball.   Check him out @ http://mlb.mlb.com/team/player.jsp?player_id=285078.

Richard is not only the King of the Flip, but an all around smart and diversified businessman.  In addition to a successful Real Estate company, franchising & helicopters, he has now invested in the purchase of a minor league baseball team.

LAWSUIT

Take a look at http://www.flipthislawsuit.com/.  This site is dedicated to giving the low-down on Richard Davis and Trademark Property’s recent lawsuit regarding a contract breach with A&E, and Trademark Properties not being reimbursed correctly for the hit television show, “Flip That House“.  According to this site, this is the reason that Richard and company have since started a new show on TLC titled “Real Estate Pros“, and since then, “Flip That House” and A&E’s poor attempt to replace Richard Davis with other crews in Boston, San Antonio and Atlanta have fallen short.  Let’s be truthful.  Trademark Properties is truly THE REAL DEAL.  They are professional, experienced, and don’t go through the crazy unorganized situations that these other teams do on television.  Be sure to watch Real Estate Proson TLC.  We look forward to the new season of the Original and King of the Flip.  No imposters.  Just the REAL DEAL.  Richard Davis & Trademark Properties

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.
