Keeping Houseplants Alive when You’re Away
When you’re out-of-town, there are plenty of kennels and other facilities that will mind your dog or cat. In fact, the pet-care business is booming! However, the same options aren’t available for your houseplants. So what do you do?
First, keep in mind that plants can go for several days or even a couple of weeks without water. This frequently happens in their natural habitats. So if you’re gone for just a few days, your flora will probably be fine.
What Home Inspectors See that You Can’t
When you make an offer on a home, it’s a smart idea to have a professional home inspector check it out from top to bottom. This inspection will ensure that the property doesn’t have any unexpected “issues”. After all, you don’t want to buy a home only to discover that the roof needs to be replaced, immediately, for thousands of dollars.
That being said, you might question whether you really need to invest the few hundred dollars it costs for a professional home inspection. “The home we want to buy looks like it’s in very good shape,” you might be thinking. “I can’t see anything wrong with it.”

August pending and distressed sales report
California pending homes sales retreat in August amidst higher interest rates
LOS ANGELES (Sep. 23) – Rising mortgage rates dampened pending home sales in August, while distressed home sales fell to levels not seen in nearly six years, the CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (C.A.R.) reported today.
“Rising interest rates over the past several months at the specter of a tapering of the Fed’s stimulus program sent buyers to the sidelines in August,” said C.A.R. Vice President and Chief Economist Leslie Appleton-Young. “However, the Fed’s decision last week to postpone the pullback should lead to lower interest rates, which bodes well for prospective buyers.”
August home sales and price report
August single-family home sales ease back while condo and townhome market takes off
LOS ANGELES (Sept. 16) – Following a strong performance in July, California’s housing market pulled back in August as mortgage rates continued to inch up, although sales of condominiums and townhomes remained robust, the CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (C.A.R.) reported.
“The condo and townhome market has been performing exceptionally well, as rising single-family home prices and limited inventory prompted many buyers to look for a more affordable alternative,” said C.A.R. President Don Faught. “In fact, sales of condominiums and townhomes surged almost 8 percent from last August and are up nearly 5 percent year to date compared to last year.”
Economic News for the Week Ending 9-20-13
Economic reports this week were mostly positive. Industrial production and capacity utilization inched up. Single family housing starts and existing home sales rose substantially. The four-week moving average for both initial claims for unemployment and continuing claims continued to decline even though experts say there are flaws in the data that overstate the decline. All this was swamped by Fed Chairman Bernanke's assertion that the economy is not growing fast enough and therefore the Fed will not taper its quantitative easing policy as promised in September because GDP is growing too slowly. New job creation must be raised substantially to 200,000 or 250,000/month from 150,000 to reduce the 7.3% rate of unemployment more quickly. The current rate of PCE inflation of 1.2% is not a problem. This announcement caused interest rates to plummet and the stock market to soar to new heights. A battle between the president and Republicans continues over raising the debt ceiling. More than half the U.S. population continues to dislike Obama Care. Can Congressional Republicans get the president to cut back on some of his favorite government programs (especially Obama Care) in exchange for raising the debt ceiling? It isn't clear how this kerfuffle will resolve but it is likely that GDP will grow only around 1.5% to 2% for the year and not much faster next year. For the week there were 14 positive trends offset by only 5 negative trends. The DJIA rose from 15,376 to 15,451.
