Ringing and Singing with New Member Shane Cato from Conway, Arkansas       One of the “gifts” of being an Ambassador is having the opportunity to greet NEW MEMBERS. This time I called SHANE CATO from Conway, Arkansas.     I must admit, I didn't know exactly where Conway was before I checked the map.     As you see, Conway is just north of Little Rock.     The cities highlighed illustrate the wide range of homes that Shane covers for Buyers and Sellers.     On Shane’s Profile page, he offers the most inviting introduction of all - a video!   Conway, Arkansas calls itself the "City of Colleges.                          Many other interesting options are available in Conway. For over a decade, a group of parents sponsored and ran a baseball league for special-needs children. Starting in 20...

December 28, 2010 Economic and Housing Outlooks Brighten for 2011   RISMEDIA, December 28, 2010-Improvements in consumer spending and consumer confidence, increased demand for goods and services, and falling unemployment claims are all positive factors for a brighter outlook as we move into 2011, according to the December 2010 Economic Outlook released today by Fannie Mae's (OTC Bulletin Board: FNMA) Economics & Mortgage Market Analysis Group. Downside risks still exist, however, including a weaker than expected employment report, the ongoing economic turmoil in Europe, and potential inflation problems in China.   For 2011, forecasted growth was upgraded from 2.9 percent to 3.4 percent based on the positives in the recent reports. The forecast anticipates improving labor market conditio...

Many people living in Conway, AR rent their homes. I have always asked them why do you just throw money away? The answer i get time and time again is, "i can't afforda a house, or i don't want to spend that much money a month." Well folks her is the answer to them. Renting a 1200 square foot home in Conway, AR cost the tenant any where from $750-$900 each month. That is money that is being thrown down the drain... A 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home in Conway, AR, that is 10 years old, has a market price of around $110,000.00. With a 30 year FHA fixed Rate mortgage at 4.5% interest (taxes, insuance, and PMI included in the payment) would run a home owner around $775.00 a month..   Benifits of owning your own home: 1. You can deduct the interest and property taxes on your tax return.           ...

I finally stopped everything and jumped right into Top Producer 8i. Definitely go through the online video training about setup. There are some very needed changes to your browser, but simple. After about 30 minutes I am enjoying the ease of navagating and getting use to the new layout. I believe my favorite currently is the Stats layout under Contacts. I think this is going to be a fun ride... Go ahead...Take the Plunge... Susan Ralls, Broker/Owner, e-PRO, PMN

If you're selling or transferring ownership of a home a Level 2 Chimney Inspection is recommended by the CSIA (Chimney Safety Institute of America) and NFPA (National Fire Protection Association). If you've never visited www.csia.org , I recommend everyone to review this website as soon as possible, and please take the time to watch the online tutorials on inspections and sweeping. A fireplace can be the most dangerous appliance in a home if not properly maintained. The reason I have this knowledge...I am the mother of a Certified Chimney Sweep.

I am so proud that I attended the Press Conference Thursday, June 19, 2008, at the University of Central Arkansas to announce Hewlett Packard to open a $28 million Customer Service and Technical Support Center in Conway creating up to 1,200 new jobs. It was a packed house and I know HP was very impressed with the turn out of support. A big THANKS and CONGRATS to all who helped make this fantastic opportunity come true for Conway and the state of Arkansas. Susan Ralls, Broker/Owner, e-PRO, PMN www.PinwheelRealEstate.com

Ever heard the phrase ... the numbers don't lie?  Well, it's true.  No matter how hard we wish it weren't the case.After reviewing the stats from the first quarter of this year for Faulkner County, AR, as compared to the first quarter last year, it has become apparent that our local market has slowed some.  It took our market a little longer than the east and west coasts, but it seems we are always behind in everything that affects them ... good or bad.The numbers show that it is taking longer for homes to sell ... no big surprise there!  Anyone who regularly drives on the streets locally will likely have been passing a property with a REALTOR sign in the yard and it's been there for a long time now.It's not that they're not selling .. it's just taking longer to sell.  So, if you are a ...
