Just took the quiz for the Surviving your SERENGETI,7 Skills to Master Business and Life to determine what animal I am? Twenty one questions were asked.

Short Sale Daily News was a website that was established in 2009 by Real Estate Professionals for Real Estate Professionals as a resource to keep up with the current events in this dynamic industry.

Does baseball have an effect on the real estate market? - 02/14/11 04:31 PM
Does baseball have anything to do with the home buying season? Just read BLiz's soon to be Featured Active Rain Blog-Even though I don't gamble I'm going to call this one before the Active Rain Staff gets to it Are You Ready To Step Into The Batter's Box? . I can't re-blog so I have to write another blog about it. I really like BLiz's analogy in their blog. They said " Well a good REALTOR® is much like that baseball hitter, except we NEVER have an offseason! We step into the batter's box EVERY day. We're continually watching the market, learning new skills, seeing what (3 comments)

But while the market still favors the home buyers,why not get information now that will help you with the home buying process and get money towards downpayment and closing costs for the purchase of your (2 comments)

Can rising Interest rates be a good or bad thing for the Real Estate Market? - 02/08/11 02:10 PM
Can rising Interest rates be a good or bad thing for the Real Estate Market? One of the myriad things Real Estate Professionals have to do is check the Interest rates. Bankrate is a site where I usually check the Interest rates. This week Interest rates are 4.99% compared to 4.75% last week. Here's how I feel. Interest rates can be a good thing for the Real Estate Market. Interest rates will prompt ready,willing and able home buyers who are wary about the Real Estate Market to get off the bench and get in the ballgame instead of waiting for rates (9 comments)
Haven't blogged on Active Rain this month. Got some catching up to do. - 02/04/11 11:58 PM
I haven't written a blog this month on Active Rain. This will be my first blog. I have some catching up to do.
