Your Face on a Bench: Marketing on Bus Stop Benches

Let’s talk bench ads.

We’ve all seen them – maybe you even have a few of your own. Ads on bus stop benches are one of the most popular – and economical – forms of outdoor advertising, a category that also includes billboards and transit vehicles.

The True Cost of Adding a Curling Rink to Your Backyard

Let’s talk about curling. No, not the thing you sometimes do to your hair, but rather the Olympic sport involving ice, brooms, and stones. It’s a much bigger, much colder version of shuffleboard, and some of the Olympians wear clothes like this, so you know it’s great.

The sport itself is played by two teams of four who take turns sliding a giant granite stone in the hopes of landing it within a circular target marked on the ice. Much like shuffleboard, it’s harder than it looks, and […] Read more

In a few short days, Halloween will come and go, and with only a few major holidays left in 2015, it’s about time to start collecting 2016 real estate predictions and see where we stand for the next year.

Best U.S. Real Estate Markets for First-Time Home Buyers in 2015

Real estate in the U.S. has always followed the law of supply and demand. Whenever the economy is doing well, real estate is a thriving industry. In the early 1990’s and mid 2000’s, various recessions hit the U.S, which caused the real estate market to crash.
