3 Things Renters Should Know About Rental Properties But Were Afraid to Ask

Monday, October 27th, 2008

 Whether it is renting in New Bern, at the Beaches or in the Mountains, people are looking for rental homes all over the United States.

1.  Interview multiple Agencies: Not every rental agency carries every rental. Go to at least 3 different ones. Read the agreements from cover to cover to make sure you understand what you are liable for.

2. Got Bad Credit: If you have bad credit you may not be able to rent. All responsible rental agencies check your credit. For example, if your home goes into foreclosure, this process surly will ruin you credit. Not only will you be removed from your home, you will not be able to rent.

3. Great interest rates: With the lowest interest rates in history being experienced, you may be able to buy a home for what you can rent one for. Call your local mortgage company to see what you can qualify for.

Gas Gouging has Finally Normalized in New Bern NC

Monday, October 20th, 2008

Finally after record high profit gains by the gas companies and no money in the average Joe’s pocket book, gas prices have dropped.

After reaching nearly $4.50 cents a gallon in New Bern, today we see $2.99 cents a gallon.

What happened besides pure greed that we had to experience record high gas prices over night and continued that trend until this past week?

1. Home Coming at New Bern High School went off with out a hitch on Friday Night. Home Coming Queen was named and parade was seen, and oh New Bern won.

2. Mumfest came to a close at the tick of 5pm Sunday. It was a sunny day and the crowd was large but not as large as past festivals.

New Bear Bears VS. DH Conley in Football

Monday, October 6th, 2008

We all know that football can be a dangerous unpredictable sport and so it proved true this past week.

During the Jr. Varsity game a dear friend of our family, received a crushing blow to his right leg and broke it.

After 2 surgeries and 4 hospital days,  he is finally home and in good spirits.

Good news is New Bern did win this game by a landslide.

The next day at New Bern High School,  the varsity took the field and did exact a little pay back on DH Conley.

Here are the scores for October 3rd, click Here .
