Comments Off on Cap & Trade Email – What Were You Thinking?? License to Sell Your House…Really?

I was looking for a subject for my blog today as I sat at my favorite coffee shop and as I was reviewing my email I opened an email from a friend asking me what I thought about this bill that would force homeowners to retrofit their homes to new energy standards in the Cap & Trade bill.

As soon as I read the email I remembered seeing it last year and finding out that the whole thing was another email scam/propaganda.  I double checked snopes and sure enough it was totally wrong.

Here is the link if you are interested:  http://www.snopes.com/politics/business/captrade.asp

When I got to the bottom of the email I was surprised to find out that the initiator was a Realtor!!!

What was she thinking when she sent this false information out under her official business email?

I realize that we all have political views and that they will probably differ from mine.  I don't care what political views my friends and clients have.   I usually can find something to like about them despite their political persuasions.  I usually give them points for a. being human, b. still breathing, c. and talking to me.  Everything else is really not that important since I am not going to marry them or take them home for an extended time.

It's great to have different views about all sorts of things.  Because I may not share the same view does not make me right and you wrong.  Just different!  It sure would be boring if we all had the same view points on everything.

By sending this email the realtor could ver easily give the impression that she was encouraging homeowners to sell their  homes before the bill took effect. 

I realized that its just one of the many political misinformation going around because many people hate the current administration despite the fact that voters legally put the president there.  I understand people being sore losers...some people hate to lose whether in politics, sports or even a real estate listing.

But before you send something out I really think you should do some due diligence and find out if its actually true.

  • ~ Closed in Less Than 90 Days

    Closed in Less Than 90 Days"Recently my mom passed away suddenly and unexpectedly.   Being an only child her death devasted me and left me with a multitude of things to take care of and decisions to make.  My husband, Mark, was a tremendous help. When we realized we needed to sell her home in Oswego, we turned to Evelyn for help.  She was sensitive to what we were going through.  She walked us through each and every part of the process from cleaning some things out, cleaning up, staging and helping us to decide on a listing price.  She was fair, honest and compassionate every single step of the way. Because of her knowledge of the real estate market my mom's home sold (and closed) in under 90 days!!  In todays market that was fantastic.  We truly believed it would not have sold as quickly if it were not for Evelyn  and her expertise.
