Leaving a mark that will be seen for years.......... We all dream of leaving a mark somewhere, somehow and be remembered for a long time.  There are others that make a mark and never give it a thought and yet it will be seen by many. How is it that there are those that live their life doing what comes naturally and never give a thought about being popular or even famous. Recently while on vacation in the Great Smoky Mountains I had the opportunity to take a tour of Cades Cove and capture the photo you are looking at.  There are many marks on the exterior of the cabin.  One of the marks you see was made by the person that built the cabin.  The other was made by someone looking for their fifteen minutes of fame. We all have an opportunity to leave a lasting mark, because of the talents ea...

This could be called a PSA BUT I'll just say get ready........ Can you believe this we are already in the 4th quarter of 2009.  Where has this year gone?  Depending on your local market real estate sales may have been down or they quite possibly have been up.  Either way this year has been interesting.  And there are only three months left in this year. Stop and think about what is to come...............In just a couple of weeks we will be hearing a knock on our door and then the voices on the other side of the door say something like "Trick or Treat". Countdowns  Then before that is all over the decorations in the store will be up for Thanksgiving.  Folks will be cooking Turkey and dressing and all of the fixin's.  The family will be over or you will be going over to their home.  Don't...

With all of the technology that is out there today for use in our profession.  There is the Blackberry [all models], the IPhone and of course the Palm Treo [the one that I currently have]. I am currently looking to change and need some help from you the users of these pieces of technology.  I know that there is speed, resolution and a miriad of other things to take into consideration when changing. I am sure that there are some out there that would be willing to help and not confuse me any more than I am already.  So please vote and possibly leave a comment after voting.

So Why The Clock AND Is It The Right Time?  Which clock should be used? I have been using this clock, below, for some time now on my weekly market updates to draw attention to how much time is left until the $8,000 Tax Credit expires.  Countdown Clocks And to the best of my knowledge, right now, the Tax credit is set to expire at the stroke of midnight on November 30, 2009. So here is my dilemma…..On Friday I was talking with a friend and managing broker from another company.  Yes we can have friends that work in other companies, but I digress.  He brings up a very interesting point and one that we need to look at when presenting this topic to our eligible homebuyers.  That is: November 30, 2009 is a Monday November 29, 2009 is Sunday November 28, 2009 is Saturday November 27, 2009 is ...

I wonder how many more of these calls I will get in the next 30 days.......... As the day draws ever closer to the end of The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, we know it better as the First-Time Home Buyer Tax Credit, will we REALTORS® be getting more phone calls about buying a home?  Sitting in the office yesterday morning the phone rings and on the other end of the line was a buyer wanting to see a home.  It was not out of an absolute need, NO; it was out of a desire not to miss out on the $8,000 tax credit.  So I will be showing this pre-appr0ved couple homes this evening.  What about you? If you want more information on the tax credit here are two links: The tax credit at a glance, www.federalhousingtaxcredit.com/2009/glance.php Frequently asked questions. www.federal...
