The Healing Power of Humor – Work Closer. Laugh More.

“Americans, on average, spend nearly half an hour commuting to and from their jobs. Here are some tips to make the ride go more smoothly:

  • To ensure an orderly security-screening procedure, arrive at your corner bus stop at least two hours in advance.
  • An office carpool is a great way to increase your levels of stress, small talk, and coffee spilled in your lap, as well as the amount of time you spend with people you can just barely tolerate.
  • Don’t take the train. Sooner or later, everyone who travels via train gets chased along the tops of the cars by crooks.
  • Drive-time traffic can seem unbearable, but remember: Your local drive-time radio hosts and their wild, zany antics are there to remind you that your life could be worse. “

But, seriously….   Commuting long distances daily is no laughing matter.  It’s a serious risk to you health and sanity, not to mention your pocketbook. So, trade your home at Commuter Swap and spend more time enjoying life instead of fuming behind the wheel.

The Housing Market Continues its Decline

Freefall: America, Free Markets, and the Sinking of the World Economy – Work Closer. Live More

“As the overall economy improves and the employment situation grows a little less dire, the question becomes whether real estate can muddle through — or if it will need a new round of government support to ward off another damaging downturn.

There are plenty of reasons for worry. The Obama administration’s effort to compel lenders and servicers to modify loans has not been a success. Many of these owners will eventually lose their homes to foreclosure.

Meanwhile, a quarter of homeowners with mortgages owe more than their houses are worth. If prices start dropping again, some will be induced to walk away, further undermining the market.”

The housing market is still in retreat with no signs of recovery. If you need to relocate, but you’re unable to sell your home, swap it instead with Commuter Swap. Just because your stuck with you home, doesn’t mean that you’re stuck in your home.
