ga: I love my new IDX search - 08/24/07 12:57 AM
I have just plugged in a new IDX search to my website.  It's been there about 2 weeks now and I love it!  They are not giving me any kind of referral or anything like that.  Nothing in this for me other than it's a great product and worth sharing.

ga: So how's the market? - 07/30/07 02:39 PM
We get that question all time. I got asked again today and I have to say our market here in Powder Springs, Marietta, West Cobb county is pretty good.  I know it's good compared to other areas of the country.  Yes, our inventory has grown from last year.  It's up about 20% to an 8 month supply of homes. 
So now is not the time to try to push the envelope on market price.  But we have buyers, we have seller, and nice homes that are priced fairly, marketed effectively, and show well, will sell. 
All in all it's nothing like … (12 comments)
