Wednesday, November 18, 2009, 05:57 AMFinding a good real estate agent is essential to enjoying a painless real estate transaction. Good real estate agents should behave professionally and should have the knowledge to help you navigate the process successfully. You should never feel rushed or hurried by a realtor. They should create a market analysis before listing your house. Good agents will give tips on how to improve the marketability and enhance the house for sale. Real estate agents should discuss the location, condition and give other tips and recommendations.

Wednesday, October 28, 2009, 10:29 AMThe current financial crisis has resulted in the demise of scores of banks across the country. The number of banks that have failed so far this year topped 100 -- the most in nearly two decades. The tally -- so far -- is nowhere near the Savings & Loan debacle that stretched from the early 1980s into the mid-1990s. FDIC records show that 2,900 institutions failed during that time. Bank failures have cost the FDIC's fund that insures deposits an estimated $25 billion this year and are expected to cost $100 billion through 2013.
Here are the 10 biggest bank failures, by assets, of the current crisis:
1) Washington Mutual - Seattle - $307,000,000,000
2) IndyMac Bank - Pasadena, Calif. - $32,000,000,000
3) Colonial Bank - Montgomery, Ala. - $25,000,000,000
4) Guaranty Bank - Austin, Texas - $13,000,000,000
5) BankUnited, FSB - Coral Gables, Fla. - $12,800,000,000
