(This story is best enjoyed if you start the video at the bottom of the post before you start reading!)   Wow... what an unusual Monday!  The day began... as all Mondays do... with lots of coffee, a shake off of the "weekend attitude", and a "kick it into gear" for a great week ahead. My arrival at the office brought a few surprises, but nothing that could not be considered par for the course of doing business in a busy Real Estate office.... especially in this challenging Real Estate Market! At about lunch hour, I wandered into the kitchen to unwrap my "frozen pile of italian mush" chosen for Monday's lunch, and pop it into the microwave to be turned into a "steaming pile of italian mush" to be consumed to fuel my brilliance for the day.  (I use the word "brilliance" very loosely here!...

In the past three years I have been forced to become an expert doing short sales.  Right now over half my business is dealing with short sales.  One common frustration comes up time and time again. Here is a typical scenario. A family owns a home that was bought at the peak of the market, or refinanced at the peak.  For example they may owe 400,000 on a home that is only worth 250,000.  The owner is employed, but with the economic slow down they are making less money then they did when they took out the mortgage.  They have attempted to contact their lender, with the hope to either get their principle balance reduced, or work out a way to get a lower payment.  They are still employed, but just making less. I meet with the owners, and let them know that they are 100,000-200,000 UPSIDE-DO...

The chairman of MOVE, INC. (Realtor.com),Joe Hanauer, has been lobbying in Washington with a proposal that poses a solution to the question:  If home buyers had insurance to protect them from falling home values woud it give the needed "boost" to home sales that is needed to breathe new life into our failing economy?  He’s suggesting that the US government offer the insurance as a supplement to the "housing bailout." WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS IDEA... DOES THE COST JUSTIFY THE BENEFITS... and how effective do you think it would be? Follow the link to read the details of Joe's proposal. ......MORE HERE!

All of us are being bombarded with advice, seminars, etc. about the importance of having a presence on the important social media platforms.  Great advice.... not very helpful, though, without also giving some advice about developing a strategy for using your presence on all of these sites!  When I first started posting our team's profile and information on sites like:  ACTIVE RAIN, FACEBOOK, TWITTER, AND MYSPACE... I wasn't quite certain how I was going to use these profiles to market our business and to generate buzz, interest and leads.  In hind sight... I now realize that developing the STRATEGY is the first step that you should take in this effort... not the last!  You must use the strategy that you develop to generate the keywords, titles & the content that you write for your prof...
