I am always amazed at the new technology that is becoming available to us.
Here is a new one to me called “Homesnap” which is a new App you can download to your IPhone.
This App is Unique in that it allows users to get any information on homes with just a picture. The information that you get is: Square footage, price estimate, number of rooms, interior pictures and get this it will give you the information on similar homes.
This App works all over the country and an option to contact the agent. I think this will revolutionize the way we buy houses. It certainly saves you the time and effort of chasing down the Agent for the information.
This App is FREE!
I for one am going to get this App.
You can read all about this App on

There has been a major price cut on flat screen TV’s from now until the end of Black Friday. The price cut in some stores are as much as 40% from a year ago.
Retailers are focusing on deals for the bigger size TV rather than the extra’s like 3D.
The stores are offering free shipping also.
On an average 32″ TV’s are selling for $199 and 40″ around $300 and 46″ between $375 and $400.
I noticed that Walmart had a 40″ TV advertised for $248. Now that is a good deal.
You can also go to Dealnews.com and shop for more deals.
When you buy a new TV do not be tempted or persuaded to buy the extended warranty, it has been proven to be a waste of money for a reliable product like the TV’s of today.
So if you are in need of a new TV now is the best time to purchase one.

What you need to keep in mind when selling your jewelry…
Appraisals or bills of sale have little bearing on the price you’ll get when selling. Generally, you won’t get more than “scrap” value.
Take each item to several places that buy jewelry and get competing offers. Try pawnshops, especially when selling gold. Most jewelers do not buy used jewelry.
To get more money, sell to an individual (such as to a friend or relative) through a private sale — you might get as much as 50% of retail.
Sell through eBay. This is reasonably safe if done carefully and if you use a third party, such as PayPal, to handle the financial transaction.
Note: Protect valuable jewelry from being stolen before you can sell it by storing it in a hard-to-find place, such as a hollowed-out book. Never use a jewelry box on your dresser. That should be reserved for costume jewelry only — if anything is stolen, it will probably be that box.
