Responsive WordPress themes are the current craze in the open source world.  But are they a true requirement or just a bunch of hype thrown out to sell more premium themes to unsuspecting buyers?  Do WordPress users really need to consider upgrading their existing themes to one that is responsive and mobile friendly?

Exterior Remodeling: Best Bang for Your Buck

Despite a slow market and a slight decrease in the resale value of most remodeling projects, REALTORS® report that the smartest home improvement investments may also be some of the least expensive.

Agents To Pay For Buyer Stimulus

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.
