Check List For Your Moving Day

The home buying and selling actual moving day is usually an ordeal and a challenge at best. No matter which side of the fence your on [buyer or seller] there are challenges to a successful move when the day finally comes. A little preparedness helps avoid disasters. Over the years I have developed a few tips that will help.

WHERE WILL THE MOVING VAN PARK?  On the surface it may seem like a silly question but can be serious issue. You assume if you have a driveway it will be no problem. What if it’s an 18 wheel semi tractor-trailer that shows up on moving day? What if you have on street parking, where will it park, if other cars are parked there?  What if it has to park a distance away and it rains on move day? Make sure that the salesman  handling  the paperwork, also covers this important issue with you. …continue

Captain Keane drops down ranks

Another take on Bootgate. Could the reason that Sir Alex Ferguson was so livid after the Arsenal game have been because his lieutenant on the pitch had been so unnaturally quiet? Manchester United do not usually take defeat lying down or need to be stirred up after the event – their captain sees to that. Roy canada goose coat 1000 calorie a day meal plan Keane was barely a factor in the Arsenal game, however, and was again bright blue canada goose jacket conspicuously absent as a decisive midfield presence in the midweek victory over Juventus.

On Tuesday, United travel to Turin for the first time since overcoming Juventus en route to the Treble in 1999. If Keane puts in another subdued performance at the Stadio Della Alpi, supporters will know something is wrong, since this was the ground where the captain played arguably his best game for United, hauling his side back from a 2-0 deficit and ensuring progress to a Barcelona final that he knew he would have to watch from the stands.

Certainly Ferguson was arguing that Turin was Keane’s finest hour last week. The surprise news this week canada goose coat 1000 calorie diets is that the manager does not expect to see a repeat. Ever.

‘That Roy Keane has gone,’ Ferguson says. ‘But we don’t need the old Roy Keane any more. Any player who has depended on his running ability, and Roy was always a box-to-box player, knows he cannot last forever. He has got to pick his moments to drive forward now, you don’t ever lose the ability to do that, and as best canada goose jacket review long as there is someone else sitting in Roy goose will still be getting forward at the right time. He just won’t be doing it all the time in every game.’

Keane has admitted as much. He has a persistent hip problem that hampers his mobility, requiring long periods with the physio when other players are training between games, and fears he may need the joint replacing when he retires. He has deliberately tried to calm down his game to conserve energy, and to think more about what he is doing rather than rushing into challenges and confrontations as of old.

The only trouble is that the contrast between old and new is quite startling. For Keane buy a canada goose jacket online and for United. Judging by the evidence of the past week or so, Ferguson is wrong to assert United do not need the old Keane. They are crying out for the old Keane and the ease with which Arsenal and Juventus dominated the midfield at Old Trafford last week suggests that United do not quite know what to do with the new one.

‘We played to suit Arsenal’s midfield in the Cup match and I wasn’t happy about that,’ Ferguson admits. ‘It wasn’t the way we set out to play against them. We need Roy to organise the midfield more. He is cautiously realising that he will be of more value to us now using his experience in a sitting role. It could bring a new dimension to his game; he showed against Blackburn in the Worthington Cup he could be fantastic sitting in front of the back four. But clearly there is going to be some period of transition and I’m going to have to rest can i put my canada goose jacket in the dryer him for a few games, too.’

The question, it seems, is whether Keane picks his games and does what he is best at once in a while, or whether he adapts his style to play more conservatively in more games. Ferguson confesses he is not quite sure what the outcome will be. He still feels the player could drop back into the back four and be worth a place, although it is canada goose coat 1000 calorie debatable whether Keane’s current performances will warrant selection once Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and Juan Veron are fit. The greater question, suddenly, is how long Keane has left. That is the extent to which the hip injury has compromised a 31-year-old fitness fanatic with the best engine in the business.

‘He’s got another two-and-a-half years on his contract and I think he’ll get through that, no problem,’ Ferguson says. ‘I think Roy has assessed himself properly. He has to if he wants to play in all the games and we can help him by doing the right things before and after games.’ Virtually all Keane’s training and preparation now consists of stretching sessions with the physio to promote mobility. ‘Roy can you wash a canada goose jacket in the washer will be 34 when his present contract ends and any player at that age is on bonus time,’ Ferguson says. ‘If his hip is all right, he could carry on playing until he buy canada goose parka cheap is 36.’

Keane took buy canada goose jacket australia advantage of his last suspension to have his hip examined and scar tissue removed. It appeared to be a routine operation, but United fans are still waiting for a complete recovery and it seems neither player nor manager now expects one.

Even Juventus will be disappointed about that, although the Italians might just have caught sight of the future on Wednesday when John O’Shea came on for Mikael Silvestre. ‘He is a young player with no fear whatsoever, who just wants to show he can play,’ Ferguson says of 22-year-old O’Shea. ‘He knows he has the ability, he knows his time will come, and it is becoming a problem for me to leave him out of the team. I’m sure he can play in central midfield too, that might even be his best position. We will certainly be giving him a try.’

Is New Construction About To Return To Our Area??????

The answer to that question is absolutely………….YES!!

After 6 long years of little to no permits for new construction being pulled, all that is about to change. The market has perfect conditions for a new construction boom once again.

REASON #1: According to “Prein Daily News”, a watch dog group that tracks real estate numbers……record low inventories of re-sale homes is making it increasingly difficult for a growing numbers of buyers to make offers on homes, without getting themselves into a bidding war with other interested buyers.  A multi-offer environment has been around Lee County for nearly 2 years in the under $250,000 priced homes. Buyers have become frustrated with this trend. It is common place for homes in this price range to be bid UP, over the homes listed price in MLS, by these multiple offers. At the present time there are less than 2000 homes currently on the market for sale……..this equates to about a 3 month supply, compared to 2010 when we had a 7-9 month supply of available homes  “For Sale”.  Many new Realtors to the business, who have little experience, are confused with the new procedures for either making or receiving multiple offers. …continue
