The Worst Places To Seek Refuge During The Zombie Apocalypse

The Huffington Post  | By Landess Kearns  

If and when the zombie apocalypse is nigh, we will all have to make one monumental decision: Where to seek refuge?

Steer clear of the 25 cities on the map below, produced by real-estate website Trulia. Unless you're a zombie, in which case, live it up! (Oh wait, you can't.)

When the undead rise up, hitting the beach in zombie-free bliss will not be an option. Honolulu is ranked as the most appetizing city for hungry zombies.

Residents of Honolulu will make easy targets for the walking dead, what with the city's high walkability and lack of hardware stores (where there are potential zombie-killing weapons).

Team,

We are very excited to announce that our 3D Matterport Virtual Tour camera has arrived. Over the next week we will be learning how to properly use the camera and then the week on November the 10th you should be able to start booking 3D Virtual Tours. We have 2 photographers ready to use the camera and who will be on call. Janet is also already working on marketing materials for this: “State-of-the-art 3D Virtual Tours and floor plans AND a 1% Listing Commission!”

I know several agents are already including this technology in their listing presentations. With Redfin pushing this on TV more and more people are becoming aware of this technology and so we are very happy to be able to include in out portfolio here at The Cascade Team!

We all know the old line about location. But buying a home takes research, research, research, too.

 

You will want to determine:

 

How much you can comfortably afford. The pre-approval process, which entails full documentation and credit check, is the best way to determine the numbers that are right for you. Early in your search, you can identify any potential hurdles and focus only on homes truly available to you.

 

How much cash you need to close. Knowing how much cash you'll need to close and, ideally, consolidating those funds into one account will help to prevent stress and ease the process later.

 

What kind of property you really want. Single family, multi-family, condo, co-op, Victorian, Colonial, Cape, split,

If the zombie apocalypse ever arrives, you'll be happy you dropped a ton of cash for a cabin designed to fortify you against attacks by the undead.

Zombie-proof cabin

You hear the horrifying groans. Decaying hands scrabble at the door, trying to find a way in. They want to eat you. You sit down on the sofa, kick your feet up and open a can of Spam. No worries. You're inside a Zombie Fortification Cabin from Tiger Log Cabins. All you have to do now is wait in safety and comfort for the zombie apocalypse to blow over.

The ZFC-1 is a log cabin kit designed with the walking dead in mind. The structure consists of three connected buildings. It comes stocked with reinforced slit windows, walls and doors; a barbed-wire surround; an escape

Nestled deep in the Cascade foothills, hidden far from passing eyes by tall pine and towering rock laid the old cemetery. It was here that the worst of the Pacific Northwest lay buried. They were the robbers, murderers, and worse that no church would allow to be set to rest on their sacred soil.

Are you an investor or landlord in the Phoenix market? Do you buy several houses a year to "flip" or buy to hold long term? Do you like a quick, and easy profit or prefer to bring in long term cash flow? Every investor has a different strategy. As investors we wholesale, flip, and hold properties for monthly cash flow and appreciation. Wouldn’t it be nice to earn an extra $1,500 - $6,000 on EVERY property you SELL! I know that would be a dream come true for ALL investors.

If you like making more money on your investments… I have some GREAT news for you! I am looking to take on a very limited number of new private investor clients. This means you will never have to pay 6% commission to a real estate agent again (unless you want to, of course.) Some of

It's a half-full glass in the monthly Architectural Billing Index from the American Association of Architects.

The national index hit 55.2 in September, up from 53.0 in August. The other two indexes AIA reports, inquiries and new contracts are also up.

These data are a nine- to 12-month leading indicator of anticipated construction starts.

In the ABI, any number over 50 means a rising trend, under 50 is a drop from the previous month.

In the West region, which includes Arizona, the index in September dipped slightly to 54.2 from 54.4 in August, but the index for the region is in the fourth month of a rebound from declining trends from April and May.

"Strong demand for apartment buildings and condominiums has been one of the main drivers in
