"Buyers are liars." My assumption is that this phrase isn't foreign to you. It certainly wasn't me as I learned it in my first office about a month after breaking into real estate. I have always found it cheesy, defeatist, and a pretty good indicator that agents that say it aren't spectacular at their job. Now I know that's the same rash generalization that they are making- but whatever. A couple months back I received a referral from a family friend (technically our wives are really good friends and we're friendly acquaintances). After speaking with this gentleman for an (12 comments)
Interesting sale - 07/25/08 03:04 PM
There was a 12.27 acre parcel of land for sale to the southern-most tip of my town, Coal City, IL. Instead of listing with one of the local real estate professionals the sellers opted for a company that sells primarily land and commercial developments. I can dig that...makes enough sense from a fundamental standpoint to use a company with expertise in that area. The lot went up for sale at $920,250 on 8/16/07. Now many of my readers are from around North America- so take my opinion that I thought that price at $75,000 per acre was a little high. Need (2 comments)
I've only read 2 comic books in my entire life. One rainy day circa 1990 I skimmed over a pair of someone's Spiderman books and never REALLY took to liking them. Now, as an adult, I love comic book movies and would probably read the books if time allowed. My absolute favorite comic book mythos is Batman. I know the stories up and down in and out and 6 ways to Sunday (mostly via other geeks on the internet). Needless to say, after the excellence of Batman Begins I've been pretty jazzed about the sequel for the last year or (8 comments)
The Final All-Star - 07/07/08 02:37 PM
The All-Star teams are in and while you, the voting fan, failed to get White Sox left fielder, Carlos Quentin, into the game- the players voted him in to make up for it. NOW you have a REAL chance to make a difference... As they have for the last several years, Major League Baseball is allowing the fans to vote in the final all-star in each league. I generally do not care about National League baseball....but I do like both former White Sox players Aaron Rowand and Carlos Lee. The real reason for the post is to a) urge you to (6 comments)
