Corvette Project - 03/30/07 09:47 PM
I have been working on a 1984 Corvette project car for a while now and the car now looks like a Corvette again. The 1984 is the first year of the C4 generation and the lightest weight car of this generation. When you want to go fast lighter weight means faster performance and lightweight cars are much easier on parts. I also selected the C4 Vette because the engine is set REALLY far back in the front suspension which makes for a very quick weight transfer when you launch the car. Here is the run down on what I have done: Removed (23 comments)
Best Buys - 03/20/07 11:24 PM
I ran across this Best Buy section and immediately thought I should share some information on property that truly fits the "Best Buy" criteria. Here are some details that will surprise many of you especially when you see the features, amenities and then the pricing for these lots. When you see the price you are going to think I have a price typo...seriously. Apple Valley Lake is an Ohio lake community nestled in Knox County in the rural central part of Ohio between Columbus and Cleveland. Apple Valley offers boating, fishing, water skiing, jet skiing, swimming, 3 beaches, outdoor pool, indoor pool, a club (2 comments)
Video Podcasting With An Apple Computer - 03/16/07 09:46 PM
I am curious how many on this forum are doing video podcasting with a Mac and using Garageband? I have been doing some research and it seems to be the easiest way to go from idea to a completed project. Does anyone have an issue with the screen size format using Mac's built in podcast format which is essentially a square screen that will fit the IPOD video screen format? Most of the other screen viewing formats I have seen are using a different screen format. Sam Miller (7 comments)

Selling real estate in smaller real estate communities like Mount Vernon, Ohio and Apple Valley, Ohio can be very rewarding if you understand your market.

Referrals and Relocation - 03/01/07 12:32 AM
Referrals can be one of the best ways to grow your real estate business. Each year it is a good idea to evaluate what percentage of your business was generated from Referrals. Every year it is very wise to compare that years percentage to your prior years. The longer you are active in the real estate industry the higher your percentage of referral business should become. As your reputation with your clients develops your past clients and customers will become more willing to refer you business. If you stay in touch with your past clients on a regular basis and you continually provide value to them as (3 comments)
