Tallahassee Weekly Lis Pendens Filings December 31, 2008
Well, it's hard to believe that we're coming upon two milestones at the very same time. This blog is now 1 year old, though my first meaningful blog post was in January of this year. But the real milestone is that today's blog post is the 200th post in the Tallahassee Real Estate Blog! I'm not so sure that when I started this that I thought it would be so involved.
Since this is the 200th post to the Tallahassee Real Estate Blog, I think it is excellent that we have a question from a reader that will serve as the basis of today's article. I...
