Tampa's Housing Stats are UP! - 05/27/08 07:39 AM
According to the Greater Tampa Association of Realtors, Tampa's housing stats are up again! We are seeing a great trend here. From January 2008 to April 2008, Tampa existing home sales are up a whopping 56%. Inventory is down 2% since January 2008. What does this mean for Tampa residents? The market is getting better! Home prices are still relatively low for buyers, but they are rebounding from the real estate slump. If you've been waiting to list your Tampa home for sale because you want to wait for the market to start to rebound, now may be the time to (0 comments)
Should you buy a Tampa home now or wait for rock bottom prices? - 05/19/08 06:32 PM
Some homebuyers have recently asked me the question, should I buy a Tampa home now, or wait and see if prices drop even more? Many buyers are waiting for the market to "bottom out".

An hour (or three) of lead generation a day keeps the real estate blues away! - 05/05/08 08:03 AM
According to Keller Williams philosophy on lead generation, an hour (or three) a day of lead generation a day keeps the real estate blues away! KW is encouraging their agents to spend each day from 9am to 10am doing lead generation - called the Power Hour. Do other real estate companies or individuals follow this simple technique? It could include calling expireds and withdrawns, calling your sphere of influence, etc. I am curious about what other KW agents, as well as agents from other brokerages do for their Power Hour, if they practice this technique!Personally I do call on expireds from (6 comments)
