Foreclosure Trends In Georgia Real Estate - 03/24/08 08:05 PM
If you turn on the news today and listen to latest on the housing crisis you'll find that in March, Georgia will add another 7300 or so foreclosure/REO properties in the next 90 days. While the inventory for foreclosures / REO properties increases (there are 214 available today in Lawrenceville), there is a great new trend occurring, that make me believe we'll be coming out of the Atlanta version of the housing "crisis." The "F" word has enticed many buyers to look into this avenue. I get requests daily to look at foreclosures. Corporate, Bank owned, investor owned, REOs all can (0 comments)

Have You Heard of Qassia? SEO Backlink Builder and Ad Revenue Sharer? - 03/08/08 07:54 PM
Qassia was first spammed to me through Active Rain, so I thought it only appropriate to post a blog post on it. Basically, it's an MLM concept with allowable backlinks to content, thus boosting SEO results and helping their Revenue Sharing. So you can make money and boost your site at the same time. Pretty nifty. It's invite only and trust me you will get invites, but if the person wasn't honest with you up front about the MLM part of it, then you might want to sign up with me! (BOO! Adam!)

Lawrenceville, GA - Walmart Converts Sinks To Help GA Drought Conditions - 03/05/08 01:52 PM
Who says, Walmart doesn't care. In an effort to minimize their impact on the environment, Walmart has converted thousands of sinks and toilets in the 109 Walmart and Sam's Club Stores to save water. In an article in the Gwinnett Daily, Michael Mills, the regional director of Coporate Affairs for Walmart said he expected the changes will amount to a 17 to 20 percent reduction in water usage... or rather 53 MILLION gallons annually. "We wanted to minimize our impact on the drought of Georgia." Mills said. "Hopefully, we'll set an example for other businesses." Mills stated, also in the article that (0 comments)
