What are the advantages of using a real estate professional to help me buy a home? - 03/18/07 10:30 AM
Buying a home is certainly one of the most rewarding experiences most of us ever have; it's also one of the most challenging. If you're buying for the first time, the process may seem overwhelming. And even if you've been through it several times, every move is different and presents new challenges.

A good sales professional has the background and skills to help you through each step of the process, and make the experience of finding, buying and (2 comments)
What should I expect from an Open House? - 03/17/07 08:11 PM
This is straight from ERA's Start-Up for Real EstateThe open house is another valuable part of the marketing process, offering prospective buyers the chance to view houses in a low-pressure, "browsing" atmosphere.

What you should look for is interest expressed and requests for private showings made to your sales professional in the days following the open house. Open houses are always valuable. If many prospective buyers attend, it shows you that the property is attractive and saleable. If very few people show up, it can (3 comments)

Websites - 03/14/07 10:29 AM
Just wondering because several (2) Company's called be about websites yesterday. I do not have a website and being new in Real Estate I know you need to get your name and image out there. But I do not want to be one of those agents that gets into so much debt that this is not a successful job for them. The two Company's that contacted me yesterday were eNeighborhoods and Z57. Does anyone know about this company's (good or bad) or can recommend another Company. (17 comments)
Columbia South Carolina Schools - 03/12/07 12:12 PM
For anyone that wants information about schools in the Columbia, South Carolina area. A great website is www.columbia4kids.com. On this website there is a selection in the grey bar across the top that says "schools" just click on that link and several options appear. I normally select SC Department of Education which falls under the heading of Columbia Area School Report Cards. I know many of our clients want to know about the school district here is a great way to get that information to them. If anyone else has any other links,...please feel free to share. (0 comments)
