Title: 34 Items (4-4-08) sponsored by PHILADELPHIA 76ERS SEASON TICKETS

Baseball season is here. I thought I was going to start by complaining how we are already 0-3 but instead I get to be happy that we at least have one win.  I went to opening day and I can not remember the last time we actually one a home opener.

My buddy Steve got a job through me posting on the newsletter, so I figured I would try to help out my brother this time.  He is looking for a new position in Risk Management or Health & Safety Management.  More details listed in Item #1.  Can you help him?

For those of us complaining about gas prices, keep this in mind. In Brazil, they were paying nearly $5 a gallon - so we are still better off than most.
And talking about those who are not better off, our friend Anne Malhum of Back on My Feet is continuting to make news.  For those interested, they are still looking for volunteers. http://www.cnn.com/2008/LIVING/04/02/heroes.mahlum/index.html

I included some information to shows coming up at Camden this summer (#29).  For those not aware, the new name of the venue is the Susquehanna Bank Center.  Speaking of concerts, I am looking for a contact at LiveNation.  Does anyone have a friend I can introduce myself to over there?

I was introduced to this website this week. http://www.hulu.com/  Has all kinds of movies and TV shows you can download and commercials are minimal.

And do not forget that the Philadelphia Film Festival kicked off last night - I went to the opening party at the Bellevue.  Sounds like some good movies are involved: http://www.phillyfests.com.

Lastly, let's talk REAL ESTATE.  Our economic future looks bright: http://www.philly.com/inquirer/currents/17133586.html.  I read that our real estate pricing per square foot has only declined .9% in the past year (Jan 2007-2008) and for those that are worried about foreclosures, the Philly Metro region has only increased by .6% (http://www.markzwick.com/real_estate/_upload/485867.pdf).  There are many sub $200,000 options for you all around center city (warning: many are small) and I have seen some very motivated sellers all throughout the area.  As for buyers, when they see an aggressively priced property, with the benefit of the sub 6% interest rates, you are seeing lots of deals getting done - promise.  So, as always, I ask that you please talk to me if you are thinking of buying, selling, or refinancing a home - no matter the location.
I almost forgot, for those buying or selling a vacation home, the IRS now allows for 1031 exchanges: http://www.1031corp.com/News/March/Vacation_Homes.pdf  - Mark
