It's Sunday. Time for Another Photo Blog by Lisa Hill, Daytona Beach Area REALTOR® - 06/28/09 11:24 PM
Hello to all my real estate readers out there in blogland =) A couple of weeks ago, in lieu of a typical real estate post, I gave you an explanation of some our photo-oriented posts. This is another one of those posts, only this one is for Speechless Sunday. Follow the preceding link to discover the "rules" of our photo-oriented posts. In this post, the word "Speechless" is a hint, but I never have a blog with no words at all ;-) Enjoy the photo... (Real Estate Information Links are below the photo)

First Time Home Buyers 2009, $8000 Tax Credit - 06/25/09 04:28 PM
I realize the First Time Home Buyers Program for the 2009, $8,000 real estate tax credit has been discussed and blogged about, by just about everyone in the real estate industry, and then some. But since there still seems to be a lot of confusion about it, mostly because the government has continually changed the program, I decided to throw my hat into the proverbial ring on this subject. So let's keep this simple. Rather than speculate and add my 2 cents about this real estate program, I'm just going to provide a link to the information provided by the Daytona (2 comments)

It's Wordless Wednesday again... although I'm starting this post so late that it will probably post on Thursday. Oh well =) And as usual, it's not wordless either! LOL.

A Very Different Real Estate Blog, by Lisa Hill. Variety is a Good Thing - 06/21/09 10:05 PM
As you all know, this is my real estate blog. But sometimes we like to change things up a bit. And today is a perfect day to combine some of our (my) favorite things. Around here on Active Rain, on Sundays we like to do a little thing called "Speechless Sundays". Speechless Sundays are like Wordless Wednesdays. We post a photo with no description of it, and you have the privilege of interpreting the photo in your own way. But this Sunday is extra special. Today is Father's Day! And I have an awesome dad. My parents only live about 20 (19 comments)

Buying Real Estate? Tips for Making Wise Home Buying Decisions. - 06/16/09 06:01 AM
Below, you'll find an incredible list of things you need to know when buying real estate. You can thank Lenn Harley for this massive list of information. Especially in Florida, home owners should take note of the part about using your attic for storage. We all do that! And I'm sure we'll continue, since having a floored attic, with room for extra storage is a necessity when you don't have a basement. But this might make you feel differently about your attic storage. Enjoy this information, and if you need to buy or sell real estate in Daytona Beach, Port Orange, (2 comments)

Hello and Happy Wednesday to all my fellow real estate enthusiasts and loyal readers. Perhaps you've noticed the new pattern to my Wednesday blogs? I explained it in last Wednesday's blog. If you missed that one, you can find it here >> Wordless Wednesday Explanation for my Readers. Hungry Anyone? Of course, it seems that I have yet to fully accomplish the "Wordless" part. LOL But as best I can, I'm sticking to posting the photos, without a description. (Read last week's blog and description, to learn the reason for this.) Enjoy this week's feature photo...

How Would You Answer This Question? Did the REALTOR® Lie? Is That Even the Issue? - 06/08/09 07:17 AM
If you're familiar with the Trulia real estate site, you may know that REALTORS® can setup their accounts to e-mail them with any questions that have been posted in their areas they work. I have Trulia setup to e-mail me when questions have been posted about real estate in Volusia county, (although I only work in East Volusia county IE: the Daytona Beach area). This evening while I was blogging, a question popped up in my e-mail from a home owner in West Volusia county; specifically, Deltona. I'm posting this here for anyone to comment on either my blog, or on (74 comments)
Speechless Sunday (Belated) - 06/08/09 02:06 AM
Oops! I'm a little bit late getting my Speechless Sunday blog posted. I'm now about an hour into Monday. Doh! But when you read my next blog post, you'll understand the delay. I received an e-mail from Trulia, with a question from a distressed home owner, and I felt obligated to answer. Once I finish this post, I'll post my next one, featuring the Trulia question that distracted me, and I'll ask others to add their 2 cents in helping to cheer up this unhappy home owner. But for now, here's my photo for (yesterday's) Speechless Sunday... Hmm. I just realized (4 comments)

Wordless Wednesday Explanation for my Readers. Hungry Anyone? - 06/04/09 12:18 AM
It's good to have variety. For my readers who are wondering what this "Wordless Wednesday" stuff is about, I didn't come up with this concept. Just what is this "concept"? The idea is to insert posts into our regular blogs, that are all about one particular photo. There are many Active Rain participants who have been following this idea for quite a while now. But I only started a couple of weeks ago. And I'm loving it! I don't know why I didn't start partcipating sooner. A bit more information... When participating in Wordless Wednesday, if Active Rain bloggers want to (22 comments)
