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.



It's funny... and fun.  I'm sitting here on the couch fielding questions from the 5 year old... he is really tired, but wants to ring in the New Year... we have 55 minutes to go.  My phone has been vibrating with text messages all evening... friends from the Rain, from outside of the Rain... fami...

I have just rolled out a system to update YOU when there are promotions in new home communities in and around Gwinnett County, GA.  There are days I get 6 or 7 notices from builders and developers, and there are weeks when there aren't any...  But, as soon as I get them, I will forward them to my...
Our Congressional "Leaders" don't have a clue about what it takes to run a business, for the most part, anyway.  Too many of these people have never run anything... they have been politicians for too long, and have never had to make a payroll.  This manifests itself in several ways...

I'm not really a fan of Open Houses.  In fact, a year ago I would have told you that they were completely pointless in the current market, at least in this area.  Even with advertising, they weren't drawing many potential buyers at all.  Maybe a few neighbors and a few dreamers, but that was it.....
Keeping the theme from yesterday regarding improvements and their return on investment, I thought I might mention a few upgrades/improvements that can be done on a budget AND that will add value to your home.  The following links ARE affiliate links to Amazon.  Most of these products can also be ...
The NAR Magazine (called REALTOR) recently published a story about what improvements enhanced a home's value the most.  It was also broken down regionally... For the Southeast (they called it South Atlantic, DC, DE, FL,GA, MD, NC, SC, VA and WV), the absolute winner was a "midrange" 20 gauge stee...

You've been to an rebarcamp or three... You have decided that you want to have a WordPress blog AND know how to use it... You think blogging is fun and cool... and a great way to connect with your market...   I just ran across this little gem, and wish I was closer to Denver.  I would definately ...
