Vanishing America: The Drive-In Theater {Gadling}

Jun 4th 2012 2:22PM

Many good times in the day! I remember the Ford-Wyoming Drive In in Detroit. That drive-in was open winter & summer. They would plow the snow away so cars could park and they even had a heater & a speaker to put in your car. It was also a great way for parents to get out and not have to pay for a sitter.

Renters Beware: Fraudsters Still Lurking on Craigslist {AOL Real Estate}

Mar 13th 2012 4:12PM

This has been going on for years. It pays to use a real estate broker for all real estate transactions and especially rentals. A reputable real estate broker checks out property owners ans well as the renters to make sure that everyone is legit and everything is handeled legally. I cannot understand why a potential renter would even think of looking for a rental on their own when this type of disaster is out there. As regards a property owner, I can't imagine, why they would want potential strangers coming thru their house and putting themselves in jeopardy? The fee charged by the real estate broker is insignificant when compared to the potential harm, fraud, etc?

The Minor Threat: Age-Restricted Communities Evicting Children {AOL Real Estate}

Unfortunately Condo and Home Owner Associations are getting away with way too much. They are over-riding the constitution as far as taking away basic human rights from people. There are so many associations in Florida that are managed by a tight little circle of people who insure that they stay in their positions by election fraud. These associations have little oversight from the state. The condo fees add up to huge sums of money passing thru the condo association office and there is wide spread abuse. Only a fraction of these people being accused and charged with embezzlement, mismanagement of funds, etc. are ever prosecuted. If a resident asks questions of these unscrupulous board members, they are targeted and maligned.I experienced this first hand and I had to sell my condo. I felt like I was living in a country with no freedom and no rights. The positions of power are often abused by these people.
