Have You Ever Heard of This....... - 04/28/10 01:30 PM
There had been a property that one of my clients and I had been follwoing for a while. It just came back on the market as a REO so he wanted to put in an offer. When I contacted the listing agent she said that the first 7 days the bank would not be looking at any offers due to this being a "marketing period". The next seven days only people planning to live there or non profit organizations could make offers. I understood the reasoning behind the marketing period, but since the property is in a vacation rental complex I (3 comments)
Is the Social Web Out of Control? - 04/18/10 05:43 PM
Over the course of the last few years I have tried out many of the aspects of the social web. I have seen several statistics around the web as to how much business you can get from social media being in the real estate profession. All of the figures were minimal.

It seems like there are many other things you could be doing that would be more valuable. Many (3 comments)

Shortly after that she filed for temporary disability insurance claiming that the work she was given reagrivated her carpel tunnel syndrome. She had a doctor which approved this notiton and for the next two years she (7 comments)
Need Help Making a Good Video - 04/03/10 09:16 PM
Having great photos has played a large role in us being successful at renting vacation rentals. I wanted to try to do some videos of the properties to give people interested a better ideas of them. Here are some questions I had. 1) I have some great photos that have been enchanced, etc to make them really nice. I am afraid that the videos will actually make the places not look as nice in comparison to the photos. You can view an example of Mauna Lani Terrace A204. Any thoughts? 2) I have a really nice video camera and you can (3 comments)
