Do you ever use QR codes in your marketing?They can be very useful for buyers to learn more about a listing if they're standing by the sign.For example, if you point your smart phone camera at this QR code it'll take you to a live streaming cam showing a 2 acre vacant lot for sale. How easy is that?!Buyers can check on the view, the weather, the sounds - all done remotely once they save the link.  See a property at different times of the day.  Get to know the area even when you've left the island.Go ahead and save this link if you just want to transport yourself to Maui's north shore - listen to the bird sounds, watch the sunrise and moonrise.  Don't you wish you lived here?320 Hanauana Rd.

No one rings a bell when the market turns. You don't hear the clang like on Wall Street when it's time to stop trading.However, I'm hearing some chimes in the distance.Crash?  Probably not.  Why? Because everyone needs a place to live.However, I am seeing more price reductions than before.  In fact, I rarely saw one in the last few years as sellers were really riding the wave and pushing list prices to the max.Combine that with a teaspoon of rising mortgage interest rates, a cup of congressional election coming up in a few months,  a dash of rising interest rates for investment products as a safe alternative, and just a pinch of canceled escrows, and you have a cake that someone left out in the rain for quite a while..........

(remember we still have 9 days left in the month to report sales - this could dramatically change these numbers still) Nationally below: Experts say the number of homes for sale is growing this year, and that can have a big impact ...
