I have an offer on my Condo listing.  It is 10K lower then asking price.  It is a short sale.  I am debating countering on price but I sort of think I want to let the bank do that.  I have only had 4 or 5 showings in 2 months.  I am countering on the offer to be subject to short sale with the ban...

It seems my business picked up as soon as I declared my candidacy for Congress here in District 2 of Idaho.  I also took a mini vacation for a cousin's wedding.  I think that the business is unrelated to my run for higher office, since the run is not well publicized yet.  The other agents tell me...

It occurs to me that I probably need more websites for the political aspect of my life.  My real estate website is not appropriate for a political run.  I forgot how I signed up for www.debbieholmes.net.  I think my son did this for me.  This website probably needs a domain name.  Does anyone rem...

Today, as usual, I come downstairs to check my Email, check my blog and check my webpages.  The only thing that is different, and its a big difference, is my decision to try to get on the ballot for the SECOND CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT OF THE GREAT STATE OF IDAHO.  So how do I plan my day?  The fir...
