If you've recently sold your home and enlisted the help of a Realtor, what may I ask did you find to be the perks of their marketing plan? What did they have to offer that made your house shine far above the rest? What brought the buyers? What do you contribute the sale of your home to, other than luck? Were there any specific strategies that your Realtor used other than ensuring that your house was on the market at the right price and that it was staged phenomenally? Oh, and congratulations on the sale of of your home!!! Thank you (0 comments)

huntersville realtor: Tired of getting automated customer service instead of a person??? - 02/24/08 06:24 PM
Hello, I came across this great website and just had to share it. I don't know about you, but I have much better things to do than sit on a phone and push buttons and try to get a computer to understand what I am saying. To help bypass this problem, check out the following site: www.GetHuman.com It gives special instruction on how to bypass the computers and get a person on the phone for over 400 companies!!! For example, to get someone on the phone at NetZero simply press #### at each prompt, ignoring any messages. Hope this helps!!! Sara D'Amico Your Huntersville (4 comments)
huntersville realtor: Supersize Me: The Redevelopment of Dilworth - 02/24/08 08:38 AM
Hello, Here is a link to a very interesting article about the redevelopment of one of Charlotte's most desirable neighborhoods, Dilworth. The article discusses how a lot of the original houses are being demolished to make way for new, super sized homes.

huntersville realtor: Can using precise numbers such as $325,425 rather than $326,000 get you more money for your listings??? - 02/20/08 08:49 PM
Hello, Here is a link to an interesting article from the Washington Post. The article describes research that contends that people will pay more for a house if the price does not end in a bunch of zeros! Here is an excerpt from the article: "The study concluded that because people are used to precise numbers for items that don't cost much and to round numbers for large amounts, consumers generally and home buyers specifically tend to perceive that a price is smaller if there are digits at the end instead of zeros." Be sure to read the entire article, it is quite interesting. Washington Post (7 comments)

huntersville realtor: Update: Contact Management Microsoft Office w/Outlook for only $59!!! - 02/03/08 10:31 AM
Hello, Back in November I posted a blog asking for advice on a contact management system. I had been using Top Producer.

Since my husband is in graduate school, we were able to the the 2007 Office Ultimate Edition for just $59!

Hello, A while back I posted a blog about using Godaddy.com to build my real estate website. After using it for a couple of months, I just wanted to give everyone an update. Thus far, I have been very pleased with Godaddy.com and their Website Tonight programs.
