Luckily I have wi-fi, and can get online from the garage. If given a choice, that is where I am. Between MLS searches, arranging marketing, and pre-viewing homes, I will try to get in a little welder time, or at least clean some of the tools from the last wrenching session.



Beginning Sunday Night/Monday Morning, FaceBook began the second phase of their custom URL land rush.  In the first phase, members were allowed to select URLs for their personal use and businesses with over 1000 fans were able to get custom URLs as well.  There were literally millions of URLs par...
That is right... save the day, July 23rd, 2009... EARLY in the morning.  We will be meeting at the Duluth Diner on Peachtree Industrial Blvd and Howell Station at 7:00am.  The program will run from 7:30-8:30.  The Diner opens to the public at 9:00am.  There will be plenty of time for socializing,...
I'm beating my head on a wall...  Little did I know that I needed 100 fans in order to register a vanity page URL.  And I asked a few friends that are up on things... and they didn't seem to know that little tidbit either.  So, here is the hot tip... if you don't have 100 fans, you can't register...

Yesterday I posted about how some companies are adding junk fees to the traditional sales fees for both buyers and sellers. I think this practice is just plain wrong... especially the way it is usually presented. In order to give my clients options and help them save some money, I offer three di...
I’ve seen an annoying new trend.  Buyer and Seller “Broker Fees”.  It may go by various names, but amounts to the same thing…  what Clark Howard would call a Junk Fee. These are quite different from the other fees that may be involved in a real estate transaction, and there are a LOT of fees.  Th...
Longtime readers of my blog may have noticed that I write many of my letters to my father here.  I lost him in 1997, but I still think he reads my blog.  I try to limit the online letters to him to just a few times each year... his birthday, Father's Day and a few holidays.  Dear Dad, I sincerely...
When I was a kid, there was one car that took "Bad Ass" to a whole new level.  Forget the Lamborgini Countach and anything coming from Ferrari...  The car that took the look straight to "fighter plane on the street" was the Vector W2 Twin Turbo.  Never mind that it started and failed more times t...
This is a common question from both buyers and sellers... For Sellers... The object is to get enough that it would be painful for the buyers to walk away without cause after the contingencies are settled.  For instance, $100 is obviously too low.  Just about anyone would be willing to walk away f...
