Deb's Home Recycling (aka Residential Resale)

By
Real Estate Agent - Realty Pro Albuquerque
My blog is as much about a philosophy of life and living as it is about real estate as a business. E.F. Shumacher subtitled his book SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL "Economics as if People Mattered" In the real estate industry we realize that people matter and that where they live matters. We now also have a larger responsiblity, I believe, to get them to consider HOW they live. Everyone in the developed world using less energy and resources makes it possible for those who have access to neither to experience a better life and to make the difference between their being able to having a roof overhead or not or for their children to eat or not.

I suppose you might be able to consider the difference between "reuse" and recycle so just to be clear, when I use the term "reuse" I mean using a space or an item over again in the same or similar manner as it was originally used.

  Share the Make It Right NOLA designs - Or Not?  Why should Brad Pitt be asked to share these designs with my community and how many could benefit from them?  Perhaps it is just my Contrarian nature, but I do not think he should .   Before you start wondering how many marbles I have left, let me...

Reduce, Recycle, Reuse. We have all heard the slogan and hopefully most of u do something to try to apply it to our daily lives. How does it apply to housing? When people ask me what I do, I tell them that I recycle houses.  That is almost always good for some questions about what I mean. This se...

I want to help call attention to this contest. The people who have donated their talents and time to creating these designs have given much already. Perhaps you can come up with a reason they need share with your community as well. Whether you can or not, I'd like to encourage you to contribute t...

I was intrigued by an article in the NEW MEXICO BUSINESS WEEKLY about a local organization that assists the homeless to gain the skills, the assistance and the confidence they need to reclaim their lives. The event is billed as a STREET RETREAT and is being used mostly by spiritually based groups...

There is much fervor about developing new sources and using renewable energy, but recently I read an interesting article about conservation. the most important thought being the title of this post. There is a theory referred to as the Jevon's Paradoxwhich...

Fortunately I was on my best behavior today. I was able to hold my tongue and remember that sometimes you have to choose your battles. We had lunch with some representatives from a large regional builder.They build good, energy efficient homes for the most part and they build in different parts o...

In "the good old days" many people had a very short commute to work. They lived above or behind the commercial endeavor they ran. Apartments above grocery stores, eateries and bars were not uncommon for much of urban history. Before Agribusiness there was the family farm.People lived on the land ...
