P.S.  When you notice people talking about real estate in the next few weeks, can you tell them about the free consumer information I provide?

They may be people needing to move in the next 6 months, and you can tell them about my Free Consumer Report: "Make Your Home Show Like A Model Without Breaking The Bank". They’ll thank you because this informative guide has a checklist of inexpensive ways to make buyers instantly attracted to a home. To request a copy for a friend, simply email me by clicking here.
Today's Brain Teaser . . .

What Men & Women Should
Eat To Boost Brain Power
New research shows that men’s and women’s brains are different! Women produce more dopamine, which helps organization and focus. Men produce more serotonin, making them relaxed and less worried. While men and women need both serotonin and dopamine, there are foods you can eat to increase your levels of these brain chemicals.

WOMEN: Serotonin controls your sense of well-being; without it, you may experience depression and sleep disorders. Eating these foods can help increase your serotonin levels (for detailed info search the internet for a “serotonin diet”):

  • Protein: Three servings/day of foods like turkey, cheese, and pork.
  • Veggies: Four cups/day of foods such as leafy greens and tomatoes.
  • “Good” carbs: Garbanzo beans, blueberries, and sweet potatoes.
  • Omega 3 fatty acids: Eggs, flaxseed (1 - 4 tbs/day), and salmon.
  • Dark Chocolate (but not too much!): Consume 1.5 to 3 ounces (in moderation) of a bar that consists of at least 70 percent cocoa beans. Dark chocolate contains flavonoids, magnesium and copper, and enhances mood and energy levels.
MEN: Dopamine affects your focus, movements, and emotions. Eat more of these foods to increase your dopamine levels:

  • Protein: Replace some meat in your diet with healthier sources such as salmon and beans.
  • Fruit: Eat more apples and bananas (even watermelon) weekly.
  • Other essential foods: Eggs, beets, avocados, Brazil nuts, and sesame or pumpkin seeds.
Increased exercise and meditation also will help you raise serotonin and dopamine levels. Talk to your doctor about your particular dietary needs.

How To Get Top Dollar Selling Your Home...
If you’re thinking about selling your home soon, request my Free Consumer Guide, “7 Insider Tips To Net More Money Selling Your Own Home.” This report will be your secret weapon to maximize the net profits from the sale of your home. To request your copy, email me by clicking here.
Save $$$ with Priceline.com
You can save money on www.priceline.com by naming your own price (essentially bidding) on hotels (up to 60 percent off), airlines and rental cars (both up to 40 percent off), but you need to do your research. Here are tips to use it effectively.

  • To determine your bid, check other sites (like Expedia or Orbitz) for current rates. Look for winning Priceline bids others have shared on Priceline’s own forum as well as sites such as www.biddingfortravel.com and www.flyertalk.com.

  • Read the fine print. Reservations are non-refundable. The site says rooms will accommodate up to two people, and requests for bed types or other needs (smoking/non-smoking) should be made through your hotel and cannot be guaranteed. Regarding flights, you may not get the airline you want.

  • Note that you can save up to 55 percent on Priceline Express Hotels Deals. These don’t require bidding and have fewer restrictions.

Fun Facts and Laughs

3 Things You Should Probably Clean (Or Replace) . . .

  • Reusable grocery bags – 97% of people never wash them. It may be time to buy new ones!
  • Trash cans – Sprinkle a little cleanser (like Comet) in the bottom to absorb spills and cover odors.
  • Doormats – Wash with a hose. Better yet, ask guests to leave their shoes at the door.

  • Scareware – Malware that displays on-screen warnings of nonexistent viruses intended to trick you into buying “protection” software.
  • Spyware – Malware on your computer or cellphone that tracks your actions and/or collects information without your knowledge.

  • If at first you don’t succeed, then never try skydiving.
  • A bank is a place that will lend you money if you can prove that you don’t need it.

Trivia Challenge for the Month...
“Who Else Wants To Win Movie Tickets?”
Guess who won last month's Trivia Question? I'm pleased to announce the lucky winner of last month's quiz. And the winner is...drum roll please: Mike was the first person to correctly answer my quiz question.

Where is the only McDonald’s in the world with turquoise arches?

a) Sedona, USA   b) Split, Croatia
c) Berlin, Germany   d) Mexico City, Mexico

The answer is a) Sedona, USA. They have strict rules about the colors buildings can use on signs, and the iconic gold arches wouldn’t work, so they used a “Santa Fe” style. So, let's move on to this month's trivia question.

If an adult’s digestive tract were stretched out, how long would it be?

a) 5-6 feet  
b) 10-12 feet  
c) 15-19 feet  
d) 20-30 feet

Real Estate Q & A . . .
Q.  How can I make my home attractive to buyers?

A. When selling your home, look at your home through a potential buyer’s eyes, and follow these steps to make it show well and receive a good offer:

  • Clean and repair. Your buyer’s first impression is from the street. Clean up the yard, the landscaping and check your exterior paint job. On the inside, shampoo the carpets, scrub the floors and clear off all the counters. Remove old wallpaper and paint the walls a neutral color. Fix things that need fixing, like squeaky doors, broken tiles etc.
  • De-Clutter. Get rid of all that “stuff” you’ve accumulated in the garage, the backyard and the basement. And don’t forget the closets!
  • “Stage” it to look like a model home. Put away your personal items and remove large pieces of furniture. Ask your REALTOR® for ways to “dress up” your home (candles, new linens etc.) to maximize your selling potential.
     For more tips, ask for my Free Consumer Report called “Make Your Home Show Like A Model Without Breaking the Bank.” I’ll get a copy to you.
