bill and cyndi daves: Baby It's Cold Outside - Avoiding Freeze Damage - Part 2 - 01/21/18 10:18 AM
Like I said in Baby It's Cold Outside - Avoiding Freeze Damage - Part 1, unless you've been on an extended tropical vacation, you've experienced the cold temperatures across the nation.  You'll remember we talked about heat tape in that article.  Here are some additional tips to help keep you, and your house, warm and safe this winter.
 
Use heat strip tape on crucial pipes, wellheads, etc. to avoid freezing and loss of use. Leave water trickling in faucets. If you're going be gone for an extended period turn OFF the water supply coming into your house.  Depending on the temperatures, this … (5 comments)

bill and cyndi daves: Baby It's Cold Outside - Avoiding Freeze Damage - Part 1 - 01/21/18 08:53 AM

 
Unless you've been on an extended vacation in the tropics, no doubt you have encountered some sub-freezing temperatures over the last few weeks.  While a white Christmas is the subject of many songs and the dream of school kids everywhere, if the bone-chilling, frostbite-inducing cold hangs around too long it can wreak havoc on your home.  
 
This past week we encountered one of our listings that had an issue with a frozen condensate drain.  "What's that?" you say? The condenser unit of your HVAC system has a large pan that collects the excess moisture that the system pulls out of the air in your … (6 comments)

bill and cyndi daves: 2015 Market Reports - A Sign of What Was and What Is To Come - 01/22/16 12:48 PM

 
Nothing like a snow day or two to get caught up on marketing and reports!
 
The first report completed today is the 2015 Annual Market Report which shows the data for sales for 2015 in all four (4) categories - Residential, Land, Multi-Family/Apartment and Commercial.  As you will see, the RESIDENTIAL category is broken down into $100,000 price ranges.  This is in an effort to give a more in-depth understanding of what is, and isn't, selling!  It is obvious from this report that homes priced from $101,000 to $300,000 were the big sellers for 2015. Running a close third, surprisingly, were homes … (1 comments)

bill and cyndi daves: Can You Get SUNK By Social Media? - 11/19/15 04:24 AM

Nearly everyone these days is on social media. Whether it's Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest or the newest - Periscope.  And, when we have a new client, we find it a very common practice to search for them on the various social media sites.  It gives us a little picture into who we are dealing with and if they are being upfront about themselves.  Imagine you're an agent and you get a call from someone who wants to look at multi-million dollar beachfront homes on the PCH, yet when you find them on Facebook, you discover they just got laid-off from the … (4 comments)

bill and cyndi daves: PRETTY IN FF00FF!! - 03/06/12 09:19 PM



Anyone who has known me for longer than five minutes KNOWS what my favorite color is!  PINK!!  Well actually it’s more like Fuchsia and, for you tech-smart readers - hexidecimally it’s #FF00FF



Thanks to the generosity of a client on whose home we just closed, we had the pleasure of taking a “working-vacation” at a beautiful resort on Panama City Beach last week. As I’m sure you can imagine, I couldn’t resist the temptation to add this to my collection of Pink Pix!   



 
I’m wondering if it’s a ploy by … (10 comments)

bill and cyndi daves: GROUNDHOG DAY - What Does It REALLY Mean and Where Did It come From?? - 02/01/12 03:55 PM


February 2nd is Groundhog Day - the day when Punxsutawney Phil will determine if Spring is on it’s way or if we’ll have another six weeks of winter.  This is one of those crazy traditions that got me to wondering how in the world we let a large rodent-looking animal determine our fate.
 
 
 
 
Well it seems the Germans brought this tradition with them from “the old country” where it was actually a Hedgehog who did the deed.  Finding no Hedgehogs in the good old US of A, they turned to his cousin the Groundhog.   Legend … (6 comments)

bill and cyndi daves: My Creative Side is Showing! - 01/30/12 12:12 AM
I am totally loving the new Nikon D5100 that Santa brought me for Christmas.   It has all kinds of really cool features.  Of course, on Christmas Eve I was taking lots of pictures, trying different things and basically driving my family crazy.  I was fascinated to find all the cool effects that were able to be done IN the camera without any special program.  
Here’s a normal, untouched picture of our Christmas Tree  -
Here’s the same picture after applying an outline effect -

bill and cyndi daves: Do Negative Ned and Positive Paula Work At YOUR Office? - 01/22/12 01:01 PM


Just a bit ago I was reading a post that got me thinking.To give credit where credit is due the post, Positive Self-Talk,  was originally written by Lou Ludwig and reblogged by Praful Thakkar.  When something “gets me thinking” it usually means there are lots of random thoughts zinging around in my head like a bunch 5-year old kids in a bouncy house.

Here’s my attempt to organize those thoughts -

The Foreclosure Process - CASH FOR KEYS

 
 
We were assigned two new listings today by one of our Asset Managers.  Off I went to handle the occupancy checks, post the Know Your Options flyers and install lockboxes & signs.  The first property is in a nice neighborhood. It’s a nice 3 BR/2 BA, sits on a couple of acres and, although they removed all the appliances and left us with a bunch of garbage to trash out, they didn’t do any damage. Believe it or not, for our area this is normal.  Keep an eye out for this … (6 comments)

bill and cyndi daves: You Don't Know Who I Am Do You? - 06/07/11 11:40 AM
You Don’t Know Who I am Do You?
 
About a week ago we received a call from a potential buyer who was in the driveway of one of our foreclosures.  He claimed to be an investor who bought and flipped distressed properties.  We chatted for a few minutes and agreed that he’d think about this place and decide if he wanted to get inside to see it.
 
The next day he called back and wanted to see the foreclosure.  I’m no sissy and can certainly take care of myself (translates to my aim is pretty good), but I’m not … (10 comments)
