Via Alan Barker: Here's a little video which sums up why the economy and housing market are struggling so much. It's politically driven, but overall it explains while our financial and housing market is in such a mess. Burning Down the House - Our Economic Crisis | Funny Jokes at JibJab (0 comments)

Thought for the Day October 14, 2008 NO ONE IS CAPABLE OF GIVING DIRECTION UNLESS HE OR SHE KNOWS HOW TO TAKE DIRECTIONS AND CARRY THEM OUT. An essential quality of leadership is developing the ability to persuade others to align their goals with yours and those of the organization. Until you, yourself, are able to join forces with others in the pursuit of a common objective, you will never persuade them to join your cause. Effective leaders recognize the value of working together, and they learn how to follow directions before being entrusted with the responsibility for the performance of (0 comments)
Via Ethan Poppleton: I blogged about this home in the winter, and the contract we had on it fell through. We just dropped the price 10k, so now is your chance. It is just one of many Logan Utah Real Estate options right now, but the best in Mendon. Click here to see more details on the house.
Via Alan Barker: Here are a couple charts that show home sales numbers for Cache County Real Estate.
Not surprisingly, Logan Real Estate had the highest number of home sales over the last years. It also has the second most affordable housing (next to Hyrum Real Estate), and the lowest level of inventory on the market.
Via Kaleb Kunz: Logan Utah Real Estate Homes In Logan Utah Here's a new listing I just put up in Logan, Ut for $149,900. The home was built in 2002 and has been very well kept and is in immaculate condition. There are 3 bedrooms, 2 family rooms and 2 full bathrooms making it the perfect home for a smaller to medium family. Comparable put the home around $155,000 so we are priced very well. Very easy to show! (0 comments)
Via Kaleb Kunz: We've reduced the price again on this wonderful Smithfield 5 Bedroom home! Seller say to get it sold! It's a great updated 1991 home that has been loved and is in great shape.

Napoleon Hill Thought for the day 10/15 - 10/15/08 11:53 PM
Thought for the Day October 15, 2008 WILLING COOPERATION PRODUCES ENDURING POWER, WHILE FORCED COOPERATION ENDS IN FAILURE. No civilization based upon the unjust treatment of its people has ever endured. A tyrant may force the cooperation of others for a time, but that power is never sustained. Only when people are accorded the respect they deserve do they willingly create and maintain successful organizations and societies. When you build a company or an organization based on fairness and justice for every member, you have built a power that will long endure. The best way to secure the commitment and unending (0 comments)
Napoleon Hill Thought for the day!! - 10/14/08 12:05 AM
October 13, 2008 UNLESS YOU ARE AN ARMY OFFICER, YOU CAN GET BETTER RESULTS BY REQUESTS THAN YOU CAN BY ORDERS. Armies spend endless hours training people to follow orders without question. It's an essential quality in a soldier. In everyday life, however, things don't work that way. Business, political, and civic leaders have learned that ordinary people will perform exceptional tasks when they are asked-not ordered-to do so. Even when you are managing other people, you will achieve far more if you convert every order to a request. Introductory phrases such as, "Would you mind . . ." or "Could (0 comments)

Thought for the Day October 12, 2008 WHEN YOU CLOSE THE DOOR OF YOUR MIND TO NEGATIVE THOUGHTS, THE DOOR OF OPPORTUNITY OPENS TO YOU. It is the nature of opportunity that it simply refuses to attach itself to negative thinkers. Negative minds cannot conceive exciting new business opportunities, invent innovative new products, solve difficult problems, or create beautiful music or works of art. All of these activities require a positive belief in yourself and your abilities. When you approach every challenge with a Positive Mental Attitude, you will always discover opportunities that others have overlooked. Relish your achievements and recall (0 comments)
Via Alan Barker: Here are a few graphs I threw together to that compare Cache County Home sales numbers and prices over the last few years. Home sales are clearly down from last year, but the average prices are pretty comparable, and are still noticeably higher than 2006 home sales numbers. (0 comments)
Via Kaleb Kunz: As of the end of the 3rd Quarter there were 765 homes listed on the Multiple Listing Service. The average list price was $256,951. The average market time has been 101 days. Last year at the end of the 3rd Quarter there were 748 listings with an average price of $251,390. The average market time last year was 91 days. So far in 2008 there have been 874 homes sell with an average sales price of $191,834 and an average Days on Market time of 72 days. We are averaging about 95 sold homes per month meaning that if (0 comments)

Thought for the Day October 11, 2008 ABILITY IS GREATER THAN MONEY BECAUSE IT CAN BE NEITHER LOST NOR STOLEN. If you study the lives of very successful people, you will find that they rarely climb to the top of their business or profession and stay there. They often climb to the top and fall to the bottom several times during their careers, but they know that the one thing that got them where they are - their ability - is always there to help them reach the top again. Your ability is the one things that you own exclusively; no (0 comments)

Thought for the Day October 7, 2008 SHOW ME HOW TO SAVE A THIN DIME ON ANY OPERATION IN THE PLANT, AND I'LL SHOW YOU HOW TO GET QUICK AND ADEQUATE PROMOTION. When you search for ways to save money for your company, you are thinking like a manager or owner. Every manager worth his paycheck knows that in a high-volume manufacturing operation a savings of a few pennies on any process will quickly add up to thousands of dollars. And an individual who figures out a way to save the company thousands of dollars is marked for advancement; he or (1 comments)

We don't fully know what will happen in 2008, but to date many markets have stalled if not declined. For most long-term owners selling in such a marketplace, appreciation from past years assures profitable sales, but perhaps not as profitable would have been the case in 2006. But still, owners in all cases would like to maximize their profits. What (0 comments)
Is Your Fence Preventing Buyers From Seeing Your Beautiful Home? - 10/05/08 05:03 PM
Is Your Fence Preventing Buyers From Seeing Your Beautiful Home? by Phoebe Chongchua Curb appeal is the first impression buyers get when they see your home. But sometimes they don't even get a chance to see your actual home because their eyes first land on the fence that surrounds it.
If that's the case with your home, then taking a closer look at the type of fence and its condition is well worth your time. Or perhaps you're considering putting in a fence to add privacy and protection. The right fence can add not only security but also value to (0 comments)
Acquiring Knowledge about Your Marketplace - 10/05/08 05:02 PM
Acquiring Knowledge about Your Marketplace by Dirk Zeller Think of your marketplace as your playing field, not unlike an athlete views a football field, basketball court, or hockey rink. The better you know every inch of that playing field, the more you can exploit it to your advantage.
Before I became a REALTOR®, in my early twenties, I was a racquetball professional. I played hundreds of tournaments over my sports career, and my best games were always at my home club. There, we had a court with floor-to-ceiling glass on the right side and back wall, making it particularly difficult (0 comments)

October 1, 2008 THE MOST INTERESTING THING ABOUT A POSTAGE STAMP IS THE PERSISTENCE WITH WHICH IT STICKS TO ITS JOB. The tiny, insignificant postage stamp is a good example of what it is possible to achieve if you stick with the job until it is finished. Inconspicuously stuck on the corner of the envelope, it provides the impetus to keep moving until the entire packet reaches its ultimate destination. The influence you may have upon your company, your church, your family, or any organization is incalculable if you have the persistence to pursue your goal until you achieve it. It (0 comments)
Napoleon Hill- Thought for 10/5/08 - 10/05/08 04:58 PM
October 5, 2008 BEFORE WORRYING ABOUT HOW TO GET MORE PAY, TRY THINKING HOW YOU CAN DO A BETTER JOB AND YOU MAY NOT NEED TO WORRY. When you devote your time and efforts to doing your best at every job you do, instead of developing persuasive arguments why you should be paid more for what you do, the pay raises will take care of themselves. When you approach every job enthusiastically in a spirit of friendly cooperation, you distinguish yourself from the vast majority of people whose primary concerns include breaks, benefits, paychecks, and quitting time. Don't complain about your (0 comments)
Thought for 10/2/08 - 10/05/08 01:18 AM
October 2, 2008 ANYONE CAN QUIT WHEN THE GOING IS HARD, BUT A THOROUGHBRED NEVER QUITS UNTIL HE WINS. The going is always hard on the road to greatness. If success were easy, everyone would achieve it. NFL All-Pro lineman Brian Holoway recalled that when he was playing for the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Raiders, there wasn't a single day when he didn't feel like giving up because the road was too tough and the sacrifices were too great. He didn't quit, of course; he was willing to pay the price because he was determined to succeed. True (0 comments)
Napoleon Hill Thought for the day! - 10/05/08 01:18 AM
October 3, 2008 VICTORY IS ALWAYS POSSIBLE FOR THE PERSON WHO REFUSES TO STOP FIGHTING. Julius Caesar had long wished to capture the British. He sailed to the British Isles, quietly unloaded his troops and supplies, and gave the order to burn the ships. He then called all of his men together and said, "Now it is win or perish. We have no choice." With that single order, he guaranteed the success of his campaign. He knew that people who have no other alternative-or will accept no other-always win. If you find yourself in a situation where victory seems impossible, you (0 comments)

Thought for the Day October 4, 2008 NATURE YEILDS HER MOST PROFOUND SECRETS TO THOSE WHO ARE DETERMINED TO UNCOVER THEM. The field of science is perhaps the best illustration of how success always seems to come to those who apply the principle of accurate thinking in a persistent, determined effort. America's great inventor Thomas A. Edison is said to have failed 10,000 times in his attempt to develop a workable electric lightbulb. He learned from each failure and refused to quit until he succeeded. Breakthroughs occur every day because a determined person continues to search for solutions to complex problems (0 comments)
