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

During our ongoing battle to save the planet and ween ourselves of that drug called oil,  I have allowed wind energy to have it’s turn here on our blog.  Now it’s solar’s turn to shine.   When choosing a renewable energy source for your home, take a hard look at solar which offers lower cost and greater efficiency than some other sources.  It pays to use solar energy as well.  Just was I previously stated that excess wind energy may be sold to one’s power company for a profit, the same holds true when utilizing solar energy.  There are many advantages to solar energy.  Here are just a few:

1.  Can increase your home’s value

2.  Requires little to no maintenance

3.  Produces no emissions

4.  Panels are long lasting and come with 20-25 year warranties

Where there are advantages, there are also disadvantages.  Check them out and weigh your options.

1.  Physical location:  Does your home’s geographic location see enough sunlight?

2.  Roof Structure

3.  Initial setup costs

Checkout the full lists @

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.

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.

“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”.
