real estate agent: What is your 2014 strategy? - 01/12/14 03:42 AM
The last couple postings, I have covered the topic of how the real estate field is slightly shifting.
From mortages being handled by smaller establishments as well as the large monopolies, to construction focuses backing away form multi-family structures and beginning to focus back on homes; this year may teach us a thing or two.
With buyers possibly being able to obtain better interest rates, and with a relatively low rate of new-home-construction, sellers may once again have the upper hand.
The value of homes may not skyrocket, but potential buyers may be willing to duke it out in a bidding war to obtain … (0 comments)

real estate agent: Cold Fronts & Real Estate. - 11/20/13 05:34 AM

real estate agent: Hey Dude! Wanna Buy a Ranch? - 04/08/12 10:44 PM
If you have any clients who are cowboys or cowgirls at heart, this listing might be right up their alley - or down the right trail. The 8,500-acre Lazy K Bar Dude Ranch is for sale. Along with a lodge and 30-some cabins and outbuildings, this ranch comes complete with a creek, lots of snow and an 11,000 foot mountain peak.
