Stop! Don't Drop That Price - Springfield Missouri Homes - 07:25 PM
During my years of real estate, I've never been a focused on pricing homes than I am today. But pricing is not always the answer to selling Springfield Missouri Homes. All I see selling in todays market is Springfield Bank Owned Properties. Taking a look at owner occupied properties, in particular, one that I have had on the market several months, I approached the sellers to allow me to do some improvements. New paint, remove the wallpaper and finish removing all the contents from the property. To my surprise, they agreed. So in the near future, we will start the task of removing the wallpaper.

[Click to enlarge] A family member sent an email to me that is so touching I wanted to share with my AR friends. "I understand that life in Iraq is very difficult to bear right now. Our troops need our prayers for strength, endurance and safety." Here is the prayer. "Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need... Amen." (5 comments)
Sit Open House or Leverage an Easter Egg Hunt - 02:48 PM
Here I am at another Saturday. Too soon in life I realized that time was all I had and I'd better use it well. I'm alone at the Keller Williams office in West Olympia WA with the doors locked and a sticky note that says. "Call me and I'll let you in". We do need to consider safety. As soon as the client I am meeting arrives to provide a signature and take a copy of what was signed I'll be out for the balance of the day doing OPEN HOUSE. "OPEN HOUSE the day before Easter?", said a fellow associate not (5 comments)
Tri-Level, Split Level, No Level - 04:02 PM
Gotta Wonder. Now here we are at Open House and the main topic of discussion is the difference between a tri-level a split level and "just for comedic impact a NO LEVEL". We can ignore the last one and focus on the first two. Tri-level, per my associate is a home with an entry on a main level living area or other functional room, then you have a partial stairway to an upper level and short stair to lower level. A conflicted view (that would be the agent with whom we have disagreement who is not here to offer defense, but would absolutely (4 comments)

Outlook Problem Can Anyone Help? - 05:05 PM
Hi Group, Anyone know about this problem? I am running Outlook 20O3 with Vista. The last few days mail has been hung up in my Outbox... Even mail I send myself as a test message... seems the only way to get it sent is to reboot! I have done a Google search and have seen some message boards with the problem in Outlook various version. I see no remedy on MS... Some geeks have potsed remedies.. but they are way to complicated and scary sounding. Anyone have a clue what to do? Thanks, Ginger (5 comments)
You know it is spring in Red Hook NY when....... - 04:52 PM
You know it is spring in Red Hook NY when.... Today I drove by Rockefeller Lane in Red Hook and it suddenly struck me that the soccer nets were up, yes a sure sign that spring is here.
I grew up with soccer all around me although to us it was "football". At that time, this sport was not readily embraced in America but when it was you could say the participants were more into it than people who grew up with it. Many families relocating to the Red Hook area often ask about sport activities for their children, and I am (23 comments)
Alright. Before I say anything. I want to say that I love using Point2Agent.com. I wish I would've knew about this website before I signed up with those useless www.realestate.com.

Its a rainy Saturday Morning in the neighborhood. Its quiet, and outside our window is a large tree with a dozen or so small birds that are learning to fly..Thier occasional light chirping is all that interupts the quiet of this Saturday morning. This is the beauty of living in Leesburg, Fl....quiet country life within minutes of all the advantages of a small city...malls, resturants, shopping... Being from Florida, I don't keep up with the seasons, but it feels like a rainy Spring morning. Temps are in the low seventies, with a light rain, and just enough breeze to move the (11 comments)
Hello Active Rainers wondering if they should stay in the business...Maybe so, maybe not...Maybe there is a niche you should be in, maybe a different town to specialize in. Many are frustrated and running out of options. With this in mind, I offer this post. I started tis as a response to a Post from Katerina and Nestor from Wellington Fla. They offer great advice to all Realtors, and I have read all of their posts with great interest. I never was cut out to be a "normal Realtor". SO maybe I should have never went into the list a house and (1 comments)
Hello Active Rainers...Points are an easy commodity on Active Rain. For some, it appears it is the only reason for being here. I just found a series of posts that are obviously cut and pasted from some article on-line. One article right after another, with her smiling face right beside it like she is proud of her accomplishments. So anyway, back to the tutorial. Start by naming your post with something like How to make points on Active Rain, a Short Tutorial. Actually, if you just combine some of these phrases together, it may work just as well. Also (27 comments)
One day I will get that link thing under control.. In the mean time, I have been surfing Active Rain and other links..What a story I found, the former President of the NAR cannot properly price his house. He chose to list it over the market, and continued to to drop behind the market, waiting too late to drop. And now, two years later, it is still on the market, nearly 200k less than what it started at. How can we trust the NAR to guide us when even the President is caught up in his own Rhetoric. The market is not improving, (14 comments)

Amazing Deals on Units Available Pre Closing at the Palms - 05:39 PM
Even at the Palms Place, where most buyers were the young and the wealthy with cash to burn, there were some buyers that knew a good investment when they saw it. They took the plunge and plunked down a 20% deposit on one of the elegant Palms Place condo hotel units hoping to make a bundle by the time the property was built. Unfortunately in the meantime the national economy stalled and the Las Vegas real estate market dropped. Now, almost four years later, many of these same buyers are unable to obtain financing in the aftermath of the subprime market debacle. (0 comments)
