The website, Lookflorida.com states: 'A group of Florida real estate agents have agreed to participate in the FREBS program.  These agents will give you  a cash stimulus at closing on your Florida real estate purchase.  You could be eligible for up to $150,000' The stimulus program is an initiative to help buyers with closing costs, but could end up doing a lot more.  Like many recent cash stimulus programs, such as 'Cash for Clunkers' there needs to be plenty of money behind the project in order to make it successful.  To fund this program, the agents involved will give a portion of their commission back to the buyer at closing. The FREBS program is aimed at individuals, companies or businesses interested in purchasing Florida real estate.  The program works by agents allowing buyers to receive a percentage of the commission that the brokerage firm receives from th...

Barbara Corcoran's Real Estate Morality Play

Florida Real Estate on Ulitzer Florida Real Estate on Ulitzer- I remember seeing this woman, Barbara Corcoran, on TV walking inside a house with a fortune teller, spreading fumes as the fortune teller whispered some sort of prayer so that the house would sell real fast. What a crackpot scene that was. Anyway, Barbara Corcoran's fortune teller and magic spelling gypsies have not helped Florida residents sell their homes or pay their mortgages since the housing slump hit America. I thought that scene was a candid camera joke on me; I looked around my living room to see if there were hidden cameras secretly taping my reaction. I usually work with CNBC on in the background. For some strange reason I woke up to NBC this morning with Matt Lauer talking to Barbara Corcoran. Matt said, "Barbara, lots of home owners are walking away from their homes as they're not worth the m... (more)

Retail Vacancy Rate in Northern New Jersey Climbed to 6.6%

With the rash of recent retailer bankruptcies and downsizings adding to an inventory that included unclaimed spaces from earlier failures, the vacancy factor in retail properties along northern New Jersey's six major shopping corridors jumped to 6.6% during 2008 from 3.6% a year earlier, according to R.J. Brunelli & Co., Inc. Routes 4 and 23 were the only roadways to show an improvement from 2007. While the six-county region remains one of the most vibrant retail markets in the nation, the firm warned that it could take several years for the vacancy factor to get back to customary levels.

What Does GRC and Las Vegas Have to Do with IT?

In the spirit of leaving Las Vegas I started thinking about the transformation of Las Vegas from a desert oasis created by organized crime to a billion-dollar industry. How did big business and Wall St. push the mob out of Vegas? Movies and television shows, such as Casino, Goodfellas, and the Sopranos illustrate a side of organized crime that few rarely ever witness or have witnessed. Las Vegas was created by organized crime to service their syndicate with money laundering, prostitution, entertainment and schmoozing services. It worked splendidly; until it didn’t. Something changed and it created a landslide that eventually saw Vegas’ founders ousted and replaced with a larger, more powerful and adept landlord—mega-corporations. How they accomplished this is a lesson that clearly should be noted by IT. Believe it or not, Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) was th... (more)
