This is my first blog post and I hope I don't break any rules or tightrope any guidelines. It seems to me that technology has become more user friendly over the years and is ushering in a whole new wave of alternative avenues for marketing yourself, your product or service. As I am in my forties (the shallow end), I am feeling a bit overwhelmed by the ever increasing venues emerging out of the information age. My goal is to take advantage of new technology to market myself. I would say market my services, however, if a client isn't sold on me, my services are useless. This site is my newest find and although I have no idea how to maximize its benefits, I am determined to figure it out. From what I have learned, Social Network Marketing is the latest buzz and I want to open up for discus...

I recently experienced a painful situation with a family member.  After listing their property, I gave an agents open house and received the feedback that I knew:  over priced and under conditioned.  Of course this seller had no money to do updates yet refused to get the price to reality.  "Three things sell a house.

How do you decide which are the best areas to buy in Birmingham? This would seem easy and of course there are a number of criteria for buyers such as quality / location of schools. Given that a home is normally the single biggest investment for a family, the best areas to buy would be where you expect to accumulate the most equity the fastest.   Everyone has heard about real estate values falling on the national level. And most of us have heard that the Birmingham real estate market has experienced less of a downturn and that the recovery locally will be faster and more robust than nationally. What you may not have heard is how values in specific areas within Birmingham have held up over the past 12 months in comparison to the past three years to determine the best arreas to buy. Knowin...
