By all accounts, this has been a resurgent year for real estate in America.  Interest rates have remained crazy low, new construction is picking back up, the resale market continues to be very strong, and the rental market continues to show strength too!  So what's nex...
These days, a real estate transaction can be done completely via the internet.  Through technology such as electronic signatures, efaxing, etc, nothing needs to be done in person.  These kinds of technologies have saved my clients and I thousands of hours, and countless trees.  In fact, my office...
