Video Game Real Estate - What are those Castles going for?

Quick post with lots of fun included:  Recently and ongoing, another real estate website Motovo decided to jump into video games and do some pricing of some of the gaming world's most famous real estate.  Its an amazing read of location, amenities, and distressed properties.  Certain properties that stand out are Zelda's Hyrule Castle, Dracula's home in Castlevania, and Princess Peach's castle in Super Mario Bros.  While these guesses are full of silliness and taken tongue in cheek, its still great for everyone to see what the logic process goes through to get the actual price.

Take a look for yourself:

Landscaping, Mortgage News, and a Link

Landscaping is a tool to accentuate the home, not hide it among a jungle of assorted plants, flowers, and overgrown herbi-monsters.

Good landscaping can always be seen right off the bat.  It can provide a soft touch to ease the rigid house exterior, or it can be used to push the voice that this house is of some importance with a bordered driveway, or guided walkway to the front door.

How your landscaping is shaped, flows, and whats in it says much about you and your home.  Do you have many holly bushes adjoining the front porch warning people to stay away?  Or do you have lambs ears giving a welcoming feeling to your guests?

Remember minimal landscaping is much better than an overdone circus of a yard.  There's one just off of South Parkway that screams for a vendor to be selling cotton candy.

Mortgage News:  Word is coming from Phoenix where President Obama will speak about restructuring Freddy Mac & Fannie Mae or possibly shuttering them altogether.  These nationalized companies still hold a large amount of mortgages as well as foreclosures. This brings the big question: mortgages might be easier to unload but how will the current foreclosures they have on their books be moved out when they use a system of local agents to handle the marketing of the properties.  Not many private companies will want to jump and accept the responsibilities of foreclosures with the maintenance that comes with it, but if no takers will this be passed off to each of the states for more local control?  Just a question that remains unanswered for now.
