I don't beg often, but I think this is worth it.  For those agents who work in areas that have condos please, please, please go out and invest in a few id tags for you lock boxes.  It is really painful to be out previewing with a client and you come to a row of lock boxes outside a condo complex ...
This entry isn't going to rock anyone's world, but I had to comment.  I was writing a response to another members blog and when I spell checked it I discovered that the words "blog" and "blogging" show up as misspellings on the active rain spell checker.  Ironical?  Not unlike the spell checker f...
I thought I might throw out a few of my favorite tips for preparing a home for sale.  In my experience, home owners go a little crazy when it comes to preparing their house.  There are many relatively cheap things that you can do to make your house more attractive.  I thought I might share a few ...

Ok, for those of you that hate stats, look away.  I have to admit that I love looking at numbers and staying current on market trends.  Toward that end, here are inventory number in months for various neighborhoods.  All of the numbers are Feb '07 vs. Feb '08 according to the MLS.  I took the lib...
Seems to me this is the most common question I get.  It is even a hot topic of discussion here in the office.  Should my clients list their home now, wait, or rent.  Tough question. Part of the answer depends on your personal situation.  Assuming you have the flexibility to ask the question, my g...
