Shuttle Atlantis launched today without any major issues! The question is, why doesn't Nasa sell advertising on the shuttle to offset the tremendous expense of these launches at taxpayer expense! I believe they do charge to bring up satellites for private companies. Imagine the Nike logo along th...

Ok. Here's another one for the "diehard Rainers"! Do you prefer shorter, precise and concise blogs or the longer, sometimes really long blogs? Do you just read them all? Pictures or no pictures? How about repetitive content? I'm finding alot of material that's already been discussed over and over...

I'd love to know how much time the "diehards" spend on ActiveRain? What are you sacrificing to make time to blog, reply & read? What is your true motivation? Is it points, relationships or the quest for knowledge? Do you have your own blog? Have you noticed search engines indexing any of your blo...

Today I attended the first of a 6 day class to become a licensed title abstractor. (it's too difficult to do the affiliated business thing so I'll just do my own thing!). I was amazed at how much of what we believe is ok to do, is really illegal in Florida.  I suspect all or most states have simi...

Today I took 4 listed properties off of the market.  My attitude is that if they don't play nicely in my sandbox or kick sand in my eyes, I'm getting out of the sandbox! They will become someone else's problem! There are just too many available properties in this marketplace to waist time with di...

Last night, Katie Couric hosted a show on Terrorism.  The question was "Are We Safer?"  The prevailing theme (at least what I got out of it) is that we are not safer!  The government (according to Bush) wants us to feel safer, yet Bush conceded that "we" need to be right 100% of the time, whereas...

I listed a property that had been previously listed with a "limited service broker" without success. I did all of the right things, lockbox for easy showing access, sign, brochure box, hotline message, newspaper ads every week, magazine ads every month, an offer that didn't work, lots of showings...

As you all already know, the market is taking a downward turn.  Lately, rather than allowing listings to expire, many agents are referring their clients to other agents for a referral fee.  I've taken two listings in August as a result.  As the saying goes, something is better than nothing! It ma...

It's odd. I've invited quite a few people to join Active Rain. It's important (not for points) but for new & interesting content & idea sharing that new people join.  I've noticed that the new members are increasing, but not at the rate you'd expect from a profession that has over 1.3 million Rea...

As a part of my listing presentation, I say to a listing prospect, "Once we get your home on the market, we'll spend some time taking about how to stage your home for sale.  Most agents don't cover this because they are so excited to get the listing, they just want to leave and celebrate! We feel...
