Watch Out For Lease Hidden Fees

May 25 2016

Lease Hidden Fees

The truth is, nearly all financial agreements contain fees that may or may not apply to the situation, but lease hidden fees in rental agreements can be an unwelcome surprise when the renter plans for one rental amount and gets charged with more.

The extra costs are put there to enhance the profits of companies. Some examples include baggage fees at airlines, smaller amounts of food in large packages, and charges for "extras" in accommodations. Those who rent out housing make their own extra money as well.

Many renters hear about the original rental fee and are happy to find that it is a good price for the housing they rent, but too often, there are extra charges for pets, maintenance, parking, and use of special amenities for which they may not be aware.

The rising number of renters has made the market competitive. Renters are looking for the best deal and landlords are looking for the best profits.

Sur La Table Hosts Food Swap in 2015

Oct 26 2015


BK Swappers, a food swap venture, was started in 2010 by two women from Brooklyn and the concept soon became popular in the rest of the country.

Anyone interested in participating should start by looking at the Food Swap Network, a sort of one stop shop for finding out about existing food swaps as well as creating a new one.
The monthly Chicago Food Swap took place on Sunday, hosted by Michigan Avenue based Sur la Table. About 50 people were there including me, and hopefully they appreciated my home blended spices and bacon jam. Others brought a variety of non alcoholic drinks, and a variety of different foods.

Other participants brought labeling, and packaging ranging from stylish and attractive boxes and bags, to simple yet practical paper plates. Much of the appeal of a food swap at Sur la Table or anywhere else is the chance to socialize, talk about food and get some useful recipe ideas.

Useful Advice
* Bring individual dessert servings or slices, rather than whole pies or cakes. Pack cookies and other fragile items securely and bring items that are easily transportable.
* Label all your ingredients and food items.
* Be prepared to answer questions about your delicious food!
* Include safe handling and refrigeration information for any food items not canned

Real Estate Market Set To Bounce Back This Spring

Apr 22 2015



The real estate market may have come to the brink of collapse at the height of the Great Recession but it is now ready to bounce back thanks to improved conditions and pent-up demand.

Economist Dr. Lawrence Yun certainly thinks so. The VP of research at the National Association of Realtors recently spoke about the reasons why he is so upbeat on recovery in Baton Rouge. He pointed to the significant increase in population over the last few years. Last year, there were about 75 million homes sold across the country. This is figure is roughly equivalent to the sales back in the year 2000. The population in the US is 37 million more. All these indicate that there is a lot of room for growth.
