Would you donate some of your AR points to Charity? - 02/21/08 09:23 AM
If you were to donate some of your ActiveRain points for charity, what are they worth to you if the ActiveRain (AR) founders agreed to contribute that amount of money to a charity? What would the AR founders pay to a charity for each point donated? What about the "high" points folks, would they be willing to give up some of their points to support a charity? The charity I would recommend is Autism Speaks. The reason?: we can speak, we can write, we can read but these children with autism may never have the ability to read a single one of the posts (5 comments)
Hear Ye, Hear Ye: "Part Timers" VS "Full Timers". Let's Duke It Out......Again! - 02/13/08 05:02 PM
Why is it that "part-timers" identify with their "real job" first and then mention, as an aside, they are also in the real estate business? An observation I've made over the years regarding the statements of people who are working at a primary job, but also have a real estate license and working in the business "part time", seems to start something like, "I'm a beautician, small business owner, teacher, nurse, waiter (insert any other job you can think of), but my other job is in real estate". I can't think of a single time I have heard a statement from a "full time" or (46 comments)
Asheville, Buncombe County, NC: Real Estate Trends for January 2008 - 02/13/08 10:42 AM
Just like many parts of the country Asheville and Buncombe County are being affected by the supply and demand rule of business. Our sales are down significantly. The pundits claim there is a pent-up demand for the Asheville area, but buyers must first sell their properties in the part of the country they now live in first, and many of the other areas of the country are still struggling. Asheville and Buncombe County however, are experiencing somewhat of an unusual phenomenon. Our market has slowed, yet our prices are going up on the existing inventory. We actually set a new record high on the Median Asking Price (1 comments)
Asheville, Buncombe, NC: Real Estate Market Report - January 2007 vs 2008 - 02/07/08 05:49 PM
Buncombe County, NC Real Estate Market Statistics - January 2007 and 2008 As you can see, the number of homes in the inventory has risen once again, 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 million. The one concern is the number of homes sold in January 2008 versus January 2007. Inventory up, sales down indicates our market has slowed along with the rest of the nation. The January 2008 sales of 177 homes is the lowest since February 2004.
