What I learned in Real Estate this Week! - 04/30/12 08:03 PM
Honestly, I should title these "What I learned in Real Estate LAST WEEK" because when I sit down to write them it's a big brain purge of stuff I learned the week before. You say tomato, I say tomato....... Anyway, here I goooooooooo: When dealing with short sales (yes, again!) if you explain yourself UP FRONT with details like "You must be patient, your buyers must be patient" to a buyers agent who might not have experience with a SS can save you some grief in the long run. ActiveRain brings you cold hard cash. It is true my friends. Trust (20 comments)

What you put into it you don't always get out of it~ - 04/10/12 11:42 AM
What you put into it you don't always get out of it~ The above statement is true of a ton of things. Your job, relationships with others, education, blogging, the stock market, hunting, conversations, shopping. I really could go on and on. Seriously. What some folks don't understand & need to are home improvements.
