Here's a couple of new free stuff aps that some may find useful. First is called "NudgeMail" which sends you email reminders when you want to be reminded of something, e.g. appointment, birthday, whatever. You can set your email to just send you an email reminder on the appropiate date and/or time. I know lots of other stuff does the same thing but it's one more tool in your toolbox to keep you from missing something that's important or that you really want to do. It also synchronizes with Google Calendar. 'Fallin off a log' easy to use, free, and can be useful. next is a cool file sharing ap called "Ge.tt". Say you want to send a client a batch of new photos of his or her listing to get their OK or approval or just to show them you're working on their listing. Sending a big attachment ...

I find it fun to explore hidden and little used roads, trails, and byways I come across. One cool road that has a lot to offer but gets very little use is Little Harbor Road near our home in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.   Turn off Sagamore Avenue just past the South Street Cemetery onto Little Harbor Road, it’s only about a mile to the dead end but it’s a beautiful walk or run through the little used, wooded road. First turn along the way is Currier Lane, a short little cul de sac with about 8 fairly modern homes. Continuing along Little Harbor Road you next come to Little Harbor Chapel on your left. Founded in 1902, the Chapel is an undemonimational church that has services only during the summer months of July and August. This beautiful little church in the woods is also available for w...

The first 3 months of 2011 are well past and in the record books now so we can start to get a picture of what the Portsmouth area real estate market looks like this year. The following graph is a comparison of the first quarters of each year for the past 10 years.   You can compare the above numbers to the current (as of 4/11/11) number of 155 active listings for single family homes and condos in Portsmouth. We’re starting to see an uptick in both the numbers of sold listings as well as the number of pendings (under agreement but not closed) as well as a decrease in the numbers of new listings coming on the market.   Another valuable piece of sales data to determine the current state of the Portsmouth real estate market is the absorption rate, that is, how long does it take a listing to...

Robert (Vegas Bob) Swetz purchased some property in the South West around 4 years ago and used Orchard Investment Inc. for his lender. At the time I purchased the property there were not many Lenders that would finance for this type of property. Vegas Bob has contacted Orchard Investment Inc. several times trying to get the interest rate down to a more realilistic percentage, but the GREED of Orchard Investment Inc. has refused to help Vegas Bob. For anyone reading this post & story my suggestion would be to stay away from Orchard Investment Inc., just another crooked Lender taking peoples money ...   Robert (Vegas Bob) Swetz  4-24-2011   Orchard Investment Inc in Portsmouth, NH | 325 Corporate Dr ...

Ripped Off! Robbed! Plagiarized! Here's one solution. If that seems too extreme here's a couple of nifty tools you can use to catch crooks who lift your confent, whether it be your photos or words, and then try to pass them off as their own. I just discovered Tineye recently to catch photo crooks. I've been a long time user of CopyScape to track down plagiarizers. Tin Eye works like this:   "TinEye is a reverse image search engine. You can submit an image to TinEye to find out where it came from, how it is being used, if modified versions of the image exist, or to find higher resolution versions. TinEye is the first image search engine on the web to use image identification technology rather than keywords, meta data or watermarks. It is free to use for non-commercial searching." TinEye ...

Portsmouth NH Real Estate Q1 2010 A little history lesson in Portsmouth NH about the Federal Home Buyer Tax Credit.  From January 1, 2010 to March 21, 2010 while the now expired tax credit was in effect, Portsmouth saw 32 homes sold with an average of 154 days on market and the average selling price was $356,674. Portsmouth NH Real Estate Q1 2011 During the same time period this year, Portsmouth NH has seen 36 homes sold with an average time on the market of 102 days and the average selling price is $332,609.  Did the Tax Credit help? Portsmouth NH Real Estate Outlook 2011 With a 12% increase in the number of homes sold, homes selling 30 days faster, and an average selling price 7% lower, the opportunities for a good deal in Portsmouth NH Real Estate look better than a year ago.

Have you ever seen one of those ideas that was so simple and yet so ingenious it made you mad you hadn't though of it yourself. WorkFlowy is on of those ideas. So simple, so elegant in it's simplicity, and so useful. Here's a video from the developer showing and telling how it works.       I have it right up front on my bookmarks toolbar next to my Google Calendar where I'll be sure to see and use it every day as it is meant to be used.
