#7 Be Discreet: Marked by exercising, or showing prudence and wise self-restraint. The House Warming: After the sale is over and we have been PAID comes the house warming party and the chance to Prospect your Buyer's ENTIRE Sphere of Influence. Your Client already knows that you are the GREATEST Realtor in your area (otherwise they would have gone with the other guy) and has, likely, at your suggestion...mentioned you to everyone that she/he knows.                                   Realtors Beware: Be careful to discuss with your Buyer whether it is okay for you to discuss very personal details such as purchase price and/or monthly payments.  Bragging Rights?

However, I am not sure that I have ever heard a woman talk about the pain. They always talk about how cute their baby was or how it was worth it. I am most thankful to my mother for giving me life and for helping raise such a great son. I also am thankful for the countless hours that were lost in sleep and the TLC that was given when I was sick, fussy or tired. I will become a parent in the next 1-2 years and I look forward to giving love to a new life. I always hear people talk about how the love of a parent is a very unique type of love. I have yet to e...

Economic News By; Carlos Arvizu Sr  Many citizens are deeply concern with the direction the  economy is going.  Many hard working people are concerned with losing their jobs, homes, or have seen their 401k's retirement investments dwindle 40 to 60% in value over the last year.  Fixing the problem, one must understand the problem, and how they relate overall to the economy.  1.         Congress can use stimulus money by way of reducing or eliminating the taxes from all passbook savings accounts, up to at least $150,000 per year on all personal income taxes.  This gives the American public an incentive to save.  2.         Regulate the passbook savings rate that is tied to the 52 weekly average of the 10 year Treasury Note, minus 1% point on all passbook savings accounts.    What that doe...

TheDon1950@aol.comSenate Votes to Help Strapped HomeownersFor the last 18 months, California has been had press to raise the Conforming loan limits for FannieMae & FreddieMac, as well as FHA.Biggest part of the problems with the subprime debackle has beenin part a combination of several things that led to many of the problems in the financial markets;1.  Raising the federal funds rate 17 months consecutively by .25% without a counter measure to to soften the blow in the real estate and mortgage market.  The Feds, have this wait and see attitude, which in this case, could have moved sooner.2.  Holding the Conforming loan limits to $417,000, without considering high cost states, such as California, whoose median price home is approx. $568,000.  .....

Why Real Estate Magazines are vital to your business, It gives you Exposure, when people buy homes, they themselves, think they think it's logical, this is their way of escaping in making a decision to buy.....Without pressure, that's why they look on the internet because of information. However,  what they really want is some one to guide them & romance them, so that they can feel good about their decision to buy.  They will sell themselves, but first they got to get to know you, your name, your face, on a constant basis.  It Takes money, to make money.  Look at all of the top advertisers, Coke a Cola, Budwiser, Kleenix, Pepsi, Marlboros (if you smoke), do you think they stopped in print media, on the contrary, they know it's Exposure, Exposure, Exposure...   Just like Location, Locati...
