Forgive Me AR, It Has Been 6 Days Since My Last Blog - 09/16/08 05:02 PM
I was going really strong, blogging almost everyday and commenting several times per day, and then...I got caught up in transactions. I love doing real estate deals, but I love talking with my AR friends. I have gotten down a system which works for me and allows me time to blog nearly every day. I do not want to become a professional author...I do want to do between 60 and 100 transactions per year-and to do that, I need to lead generate. Now, to be honest with you (even though I love everyone out there in AR land), I do want (5 comments)

In the AP this morning, President Bush said the takeover was needed to keep them from falling. He said that risk is "unacceptable" for our battered economy. Before anyone wants to lay blame on this administration, both political parties supported the move.

Help Save Down Payment Assistance on This Website!! - 09/05/08 04:31 PM
Hi fellow Realtors. As we all know, down payment assistance is going away is approximately 25 days, some in 15 days. I read a post by Kevin Obrien in Roseville, MN. today about this issue. In the body of his post, Kevin gave a site address where all of us Realtors, Loan Officers, and anyone else on AR can go and send a letter to Congress. I thought that I would put that address in a post again, so someone that might have missed his post, can read mine and ACT NOW. I hope this is ok. I do not get the (5 comments)
