15 Facebook Fiascos to Watch Out For - 11/15/10 05:13 PM
Thanks to Robert for these great Facebook tips. Be sure you (and your kids) implement each one to stay safe on Facebook. Facebook is fun but can really put your family at risk if you aren't careful. Via Robert Siciliano (Identity Theft Speaker): The following 15 activities, all of which are facilitated by Facebook and other social networking websites, are causing lots of heartache and headaches: 1. Posting illegal activities. In the little town where I grew up, 30 kids recently faced the wrath of their parents, school officials, law enforcement, and the Boston media, all because someone posted their party pictures, (1 comments)
Thank all of the veterans you know today - 11/11/10 10:21 AM
If you know a veteran, be sure to thank them for their service today. We wouldn't have our freedom without them. It makes me such a proud American today to know that our country is free because of the selfless service offered by the men and women of our military branches. The selflessness also extends to their families who endure hardships that most of us can't even imagine. Reach out today to any current military personnel you know, their families and all veterans. We thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts!
ZILLOW & CLEAR CAPITAL PREDICT DEPRESSION LEVEL HOUSING CRASH!!! - 11/10/10 12:52 PM
Tom makes some great points about current housing values and future trends. Those zero down loans are scary. Isn't that how we got in the crunch we are in? Haven't we learned anything? Buyers better consider purchasing soon before the low interest rate opportunity passes them by!
Via Tom Waite, Broker, Short Sales & Investments (Thomas Waite Real Estate Broker): BOTH ZILLOW AND CLEAR CAPITAL had stories today and yesterday about the extent of the housing crash in ALL of the USA...(just Google them for the stories) ...EXCEPT CALIFORNIA... Go figure, we just hired the most wasteful government in the history (0 comments)

"I Hate Social Media" - 11/06/10 04:11 PM
I have met people who have the same opinion regarding social media. If they don't want to keep up with people from their past lives, that can be understandable, but look at ALL the other opportunities social media presents itself with in the business aspect. There are an abundance of people, as you pointed out, that we can reach out to. Someone commented on your blog they sold a house to a couple in their 20s that had no need for the internet and they were in their 20s... I am flabbergasted!! To each their own, I don't know how they (3 comments)
Amendment 3 in Missouri PASSED!!! - 11/05/10 03:04 PM
I am happy to report that Amendment 3 passed by a landslide margin. Diligent efforts by the Missouri Association of Realtors resulted in a positive result on Election Day Tuesday, November 2. Thankfully, we will NEVER have a transfer tax on real estate sales in the State of Missouri! While it was a confusing ballot issue due to it's wording, Missourians took the time to read the initiative and realized that a Yes Vote meant saying NO to new taxes. Way to go Missouri!!!!

Increase in bathrooms in the St. Louis MLS? - 11/05/10 02:00 PM
MARIS has instituted a change in the last few days that changes how bathrooms are noted when viewing home listings. The way bathrooms are shown in St Louis MLS may make it appear that the number of baths have increased. Why? 2.5 baths are now shown as 3 baths. If you have a home that has 2 full baths and 2 half baths, it will now be shown as a home with 4 baths. However, behind the total bathroom count is a notation that looks like this: Baths: 3 (2 1) (FH). This means that there are a total of 3 bathrooms in this home with (3 comments)
