Back in December I wrote a post about a $35 million economic development initiative that was approved by the Missouri Housing Development Commission which included $15 million to pay the first-year of property taxes for qualified homebuyers who purchase a new or existing home after January 1, 2010.  Missouri Treasurer, Clint Zweifel, said he expected this would help between 9,000 and 11,000 Missouri families making less than $100,000 a year.

This morning I saw a report from a very trusted source that indicated thus far only two home buyers have taken advantage of this incentive.  Wow, the State of Missouri is trying to give away money and it can’t!  Perhaps homebuyers are not aware of the incentive, or there just aren’t that many people that meet the income guidelines that have bought a home since January 1st.  In either event, the “incentive” does not appear to doing anything for the Missouri housing market.

To get complete details on the program please see my prior post by clicking here.

  • How to Make a Website

    How to make a website in just a few easy steps. Yes, read along and I will teach you how
    to make a website in just a few easy steps. Although there are many ways to make a website and will take a lot of
    efforts. A professional web designer can make a website within a week.
    It really depends on how big and how complicated the website to make.

    For a new person without any knowledge in anything about website,
    maybe 1month or more. But if you are not familiar with
    anything yet and you use a website builder software,
    maybe you can make a website in just 1 week depends on how long you are going to play along with your
    design using the software.

    Let us make a website and have it up and running
    in just a few easy steps.

    First, purchase your domain name. domain name is a unique
    address that can be used on the Internet. It is what you see in the address bar after the “w w w.” The name, which can be up to 63 characters long, can be used with different TLDs,
    such as.com,.org and.net. There are also country specific Top Level Domains, such as.au for
    australia,.ph for The Philippines and.de for Germany.

    Remember to pick a nice name for your domain because this will represent
    you or your business website so if let’s say you are planning
    to build a website for catering service and your name is Julia, you don’t wanna call your website julia.com people don’t know if what is within julia.com and might not click on your
    site if they found it because they are looking for a website for
    a catering service. The best name to pick for that matter should be juliascatering.com or juliascateringservices.com

    Second, purchase your hosting. Web Hosting or ‘Hosting’
    is a service provided by a vendor which offers a physical location for the storage of
    web pages and files. Think of a Web Hosting Company as a type of landlord,
    they rent physical space on their servers allowing web pages to be viewed on the Internet.
    It is where you are going to upload your website and have it accessible anytime for the web.

    Usually, If you are going to buy a hosting for your
    website, they will offer you to pick a domain name first
    then choose for a plan. Hosting Companies have different plans.

    Example of these are:

    Basic Plan: 1 year Hosting Service for $8/month, 1 domain, 10 email accounts, 10 FTP accounts.

    Business Plan: 1 year Hosting Service for $12/month,
    unlimited email accounts, unlimited FTP,

    Professional Plan: 1 year Hosting Service for $15/month, unlimited email accounts, unlimited FTP, Unlimited Space,
    Unlimited Bandwidth.

    These are just an example of how hosting companies are offering their service.

    Prices and services are different in every hosting companies so be wise and choose the best.Third,
    purchase a premade website template. Yes, a premade website template.
    Go out and look for something that is related to the website that you like.
    There are many template store out there that offer
    a very nice design. You can buy a single template for
    about $50 but you can also find a template package
    for about $30. This way you don’t have to spend time designing the graphics and coding HTML anymore.
    It is all done and all you have to do is modify it
    and fill it with your own.

    And last, log-in to you cpanel from your web-host and upload your website from file
    manger if you are not yet familiar on how to
    upload files in FTP.

    Buying your domain name and your hosting should be the first thing you
    should do because it will take time especially your domain to propagate.
    This may take up to 24 hours. By the time you finish modifying the premade template
    you bought, your domain name is already available and once you are done with your template and
    uploaded it, stretch up– you now have your own website.
