Nashville, TN – For Rent: I saw the photo of the little cottage house kitchen flashing at me from the screen of my Ipad. It had a warmth I could feel from its vintage 1947 age, but was renovated smartly with granite counters and white painted cabinets.
There was a window above the sink that looked out to a yard (always a rule for every house I’ve ever lived in) with streams of light shining in, and it was there I could see the tree. Thick, old, and jutting up grandly, ignoring the busy road with cars gliding by frequently, and casting shade on the “tear-down-turned modern house” that was going up next door.

The knobs and switches of the 1950s have been replaced by a glass cockpit, where the majority of commanding is done through software controls. Old-fashioned twisting and flipping may soon be replaced by a complex combination of taps, swipes, and finger-tip swirls.
Tampa, FL – According to the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) the price of used electric vehicles (EVs) are projected to decrease by 30 percent this year.
One of the factors contributing to declining prices in the EV market is the substantial number of used EV’s coming off lease. NADA Electric Vehicle Retention Report Card suggests trade-in values of two year old EVs have dropped in recent months.
