    Gene's Financial Notes. . . . Sequel--It’s Buyin’ Time Again 2. . . . Several events happened this week that prompted the “sequel”.  Darrell had buyers from the agricultural portion of Canada fly in for a week end of house hunting.  In a marathon effort, they found four that they were ready to buy and Darrell has the number one choice under contract.  Another Canadian farmer learned of us on the internet, left Calgary at 16 below, flew in for an extended weekend, looked at several homes Read more [...]

    Gene's Financial Notes. . . .    Real Estate Market Tidbits and General Opinions. . .     It is hard to believe the schools are back in session.  I thought it was yesterday that I blinked and they told me that school was out for the summer.  My "teacher" daughter from Wisconsin has been able to be with us a few days this week before their schools starts out there.  Stephanie discovered that the entire state of Arizona was not represented by her experiences in Phoenix in the 80's.  Read more [...]

    Gene's Financial Notes. . . .   Be Wise! We ate too much!!!!  We had great fellowship!!  We were also reminded the camera images are not the same as being with the grand babies!  Since they are scattered over three states, it’s a bit hard to be with them all anyway.  Overall we felt really blessed!  We pray that was your Thanksgiving experience also.   As I prepared to begin writing this, Fox was headlining that the Phoenix market was in the middle of rebounding.  My Read more [...]

    Gene's Financial Notes. . . .   Two Weeks! On 1492 Columbus sailed the Ocean blue. . . .  and then my memory fades.  I can’t recall the last of that little ditty!  These are the days that my wife, who worked for New Hampshire for almost 20 years hates to work on—she is used to having them as paid holidays.  For me, who has always been self employed, these are days when I have to keep reminding myself that the banks and government offices are closed even though folks like me are Read more [...]

    Gene's Financial Notes. . . . It’s Buyin’ Time Again . . . . The world seems to have turned upside down!!!!  As I write this Qadafi struggles to hold on by abusing his own people as he has abused the world for years.  Wisconsin and Ohio film clips get confused with those we saw from Egypt in bygone weeks---same kind of havoc going on!  New Zealand suffered a horrible earthquake—sounds like Armageddon lies just ahead!!!! These are disquieting times but I am not a harbinger of gloom Read more [...]
