Well, I have not been a very good member of the Active Rain community lately. Between a very busy spring real estate season on Cape Cod and renovations on my house, the time for communicating with fellow real estate professionals has been limited. The good news is two-fold: There have been a larg...

The beautiful weather today is a sure sign that summer really is going to come this year so I thought that I would let you know a little about my town: Falmouth.

We have returned from church and are getting ready to head to our son's house for brunch. Our kids and their kids will be there. Then, it's off to my sister's (while our kids go vis...

Ok. I admit that I do not know much about the stock market and the circumstances to make it go up or down. So when one of my clients told me yesterday about the great move the FED made eariler in the day, I listened and then set out to learn what it all means. The bottom line is that if it works,...

At both the NAR and Century21 Conventions numerous speakers referred to open houses as not productive. Most felt that an open house early in the listing was effective, but other that that, they were good for beginning agents to get leads but not effective in selling homes. I agree with that asses...

I am just curious to find out whether the surprising increase in activity on Cape Cod is a trend that is being experienced in other markets or whether it is more related to the approach of spring than the incentives that have been put in place. A year ago at this time, activity was expremely slow...

We are having problems with our home office printer in that it does not pull envelopes consistently. We have Top Producer and are not able to take full advantage of it because the envelope printing process has to be watched almost constantly. We have a Dell 944 and are looking for either (1) tips...
