The International Space Station orbits around the Earth at an altitude of 360km. The construction of this beneficial satellite was a joint effort, bringing together the resources of NASA, the Russian Federal Space Agency, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, the Canadian Space Agency and the European Space Agency. During the early 1980s, the United States planned for the NASA International Space Station to be a counterpart for the Soviet stations Salyut and Mir, but construction was never implemented. The resolution of the Cold War and the end of the race to space triggered international efforts to rekindle the project. (0 comments)
Top Ten Realtor Mis-nomers - 04/21/09 09:39 PM
1) Real Estate Agents are Always Late for Appointments False. There is no excuse for habitual tardiness among professionals. None. I don't care if it's your doctor, your cable TV installer or your Realtor. Every person deserves respect, and respect is earned by providing what is promised and being on time. If your agent has a god-like, self-deluded impression of her or his own importance, find another. The agents I know are on time. Clients who listen to agents' excuses allow tardiness to happen. The agents I know are always prompt. Don't let a few bad apples give the entire industry (1 comments)

Long and Short of it. It takes time to make money. It takes time to get a short sale completed and to close. I have found a few basic things to explain what it takes below. If you've taken out a large mortgage, and perhaps refinanced to cover remodeling or other expenses. You may find yourself unable to keep up with your mortgage payment after a layoff, or the dreaded 4 D's Drugs, Death, Divorce, Disease or Health issues.

Fort Rucker Area Home Selling Tips - 04/16/09 09:00 PM
6 Home Selling Tips that Grab Buyers and Agents' Attention Are you looking for a real estate professional who knows the FORT RUCKER and Enterprise Alabama Real Estate market and can get the results you desire?
The market may have been red hot a few years ago but currently it is definitely a buyer's market.

If you are currently trying to sell your home and feel it is not (0 comments)
Pre-qualification Versus Pre- Approval - 04/16/09 08:36 PM
Pre-Qualification: This usually refers to the loan officer's written opinion of the ability of a borrower to qualify for a home loan, after the loan officer has made inquiries about debt, income, and savings. The information provided to the loan officer may have been presented verbally or in the form of documentation, and the loan officer may or may not have reviewed a credit report on the borrower. Pre Approval: A loosely used term which is generally taken to mean that a borrower has completed a loan application and provided debt, income, and savings documentation which an underwriter has reviewed (0 comments)

Are You Working With Another Agent - 04/13/09 08:33 PM
You don't work for free! Ask this question above early in the conversation to determine if you should even continue... DONT WASTE YOUR TIME. If the person is working with another agent, you can ask them if they've signed an "exclusive" Buyer Agent Agreement. If they already signed an agreement with another agent, ask them why they've called you instead, and then explain that their agent would be better to answer questions. If they are NOT working with another agent, continue directly to the next question below.

Have You Been Pre-Approved? - 04/13/09 08:15 PM
Notice this question doesn't say, have you met with a lender? or have you been pre-qualified? It asks about "approval." Why? Because when your clients are pre-approved, you know 1) they're serious about buying, 2) you know how much money they're able to spend, and 3) they're ready to buy NOW. Chances are they are not approved, so you need to get them approved before moving forward. The best way to motivate buyers to go through the approval process is to say, Mr. and Mrs. Buyer, Sellers like to know they're dealing with a true buyer, not a tire kicker. When (0 comments)
How Soon Do you Want to Move In. - 04/13/09 07:58 PM
How Soon Do You Want To Be In Your New Property? If it doesn't come up in the discussion, ask this qualifying question to determine the time frame of the potential buyer. Generally speaking it normally takes around 30 Days to close after we find the right home for you. You can also ask, "How Long Have You Been Looking?" If they've only been searching for a couple months and don't have an urgent reason for moving, they're probably not motivated enough to commit your most precious asset: your time. If the prospect doesn't want to move soon (generally in the (2 comments)
Looking For A Foreclosure? - 04/13/09 07:22 PM
What Type of Property Are You Looking For ? This question identifies multiple things at once that you may not realize at first glance. Single Family ? Duplex ? Condo ? Town Home ? If you ask this question and the response is that the potential buyer is looking to invest in a foreclosure... You can identify in your mind where you might look for foreclosures in your market area and how long it might take... You can identify how you might be able to help them (if your expertise is right for them)... And you can identify if they are (0 comments)
Motivated Buyer - 04/13/09 07:06 PM
Buyer Motivation To buy or not that is the question. How do you understand buyer motivation? By simply asking the right questions, then close your mouth, and listen carefully. Ask Why Are You Thinking of Buying?
Determine their legitimate reasons for buying: Move-up, empty nester, retiring, first time home buyer, investment, relocation, job change, lost job, etc. It also gives you an early indication if they'll be a good client or a time-waster. Also look for the common connection with the caller (kids go to same school, go to same civic organization or church). When you find something in (10 comments)
