Sometimes we all walk alone in the rain. - 12/29/07 04:44 PM
There have been many days, when, after working with buyers that can't decide on exactly what they want, sellers that will not listen to my advice, other agents will not return the calls or emails I've sent them, members on AR do not respond with an answer to my reply encouraging discussion or a question on their post, and things go wrong in life in general, then sometimes, this is what I feel like. Alone in the rain.
There must be days when you feel this way too.
The good news is, not for long.
Asheville, NC: Falling Home Prices........Somebody forgot to tell Asheville! - 12/27/07 04:43 PM
THE PULSE OF ASHEVILLE
From every radio station, television news channel, and the Internet, the sky is falling.
"The housing market is in a slump".
According to the talking mouths, home prices are going down at an all time record rate and to new lows for many of the past years.
Looking at the numbers for Buncombe County, it appears someone forgot to tell Asheville and Buncombe County, NC the news.
Yes, our inventory is up at record levels and our sales have slowed but, declining prices have not been the news.
One year ago today our inventory was 2,152 homes on the
Active ActiveRain Members and Non-Active ActiveRain Members...A Suggestion to ActiveRain Moderators - 12/19/07 09:40 AM
Numbers.... an important game to some. To others it is what slows us down and allows for apathy to set in.
As of today, at this moment, there are 62,223 members of AR. There are only 824 online at this time.
Here is my observation and suggestions about a way to make the AR experience more enjoyable.
Many of us are seeing our AR pages load at a very slow pace recently. One reason for that is the graphics and huge amounts of data stored on this site. Faster servers would solve some of that problem, but I think there could be some

Asheville: Buncombe County, NC Real Estate Market Statistics November 2007 - 12/13/07 02:22 PM
Buncombe County, NC Real Estate Market Statistics November 2006 and 2007
As you can see, the number of homes in the inventory has risen, but so have the Average and Median asking prices. One reason for that is that we now have more homes on the market at or over $1 millon. The one concern is the number of homes sold in Novenber 2007 versus 2006. Inventory up, sales down indicates our market has slowed along with the rest of the nation.

Asheville, NC: Invest in the land now and build later. VIEWS 6.36 Acres - 12/11/07 04:56 PM
Walking through the woods in the fall and early winter over the crisp leaves and smelling the fresh cool air tends to renew your energy. As I walk there, I often wonder why so many people choose to live in large subdivisions with homes 15 or 20 feet apart from one another rather than a country setting like this. Standing still on the path by the creek, there is not a sound except the small trickle of water and a few birds chattering in the trees.
When you walk up the old tractor road towards the knoll above the house you begin to
Wishing you a "Cool" Yule" .....From Asheville, NC. Send your little ditty. - 12/09/07 04:56 PM

Can't make up my mind and maybe you can't either. You decide. - 12/09/07 02:13 PM
I can't seem to make up my mind.
Which post would I promote today considering how many posts are already on-line for all of you to consider? There are many different subjects and lots of talented folks here, but today you may not know where to start.
My latest post took the most time and research. Its about saving money, being efficient and romantic too. If you are interested in learning about the benefits and beauty of today's alternative Heat source, you could go to: Alternative Source of Heat: Warm, Efficient, Saves Money and Romantic Too!

Alternative Source of Heat: Warm, Efficient, Saves Money and Romantic Too! - 12/08/07 03:34 PM
Wood has been the source of renewable heat since fire was discovered. It is understandable that considering today's news about forests all over the world being ravished at a far too rapid pace, that some folks are reluctant to use wood for their source of heat.
But, if we are responsible caretakers of our resources, there is no reason not to use wood.
Then the question becomes which method of using wood to heat is more practical: A common fireplace or a woodstove? For today's discussion, let's just keep it to those two choices.
Honestly, there is no question about the choice of
Graphic Required To Send Comment: Ketembilla. Who makes these up? - 12/07/07 09:21 AM
Rarely do I question the combination of letters required to be entered in a "reply" graphics box at the bottom of each post, but for some reason one that came up for me to enter caught my eye and my brain said "that must be a word, but what could it mean?"
Normally I have some hint of what many unusual words mean, but no one can know the meaning of every word, can they?
"Ketembilla" was the word or acronym I was to enter.
This is Ketembilla.
Ketembilla is also known as Ceylon Gooseberry.
Also known as "Governor's Plum".
Wonder which Governor?
I'd never heard of
Bonus offers.....who do they help and are they the best choice? - 12/04/07 10:45 AM
It seems when times get tough in the housing market, agents and sellers begin the search for the magic tool to market their properties and get them sold. Many come up with the bright idea of offering an incentive, in the way of a Bonus, to the agent bringing the buyer.
Recently, I have seen bonuses as high as $50,000 being offered, mostly on new homes, but not always. Many are in the range of $5,000.
Several issues come to mind when I see the offer of a Bonus to a Buyer's Agent.
1. What makes the person offering the bonus believe that an agent will
