ginn: Power Up Your Real Estate Buying Search - 02/20/08 10:39 AM
Real Estate buyers over the last several years have been flocking to the internet to search for properties available for sale.  Studies show that over 85% of buyers are using the internet first in their search for Real Estate.  It's no wonder either.  The internet offers Real Estate shoppers the ability to get more information and a better perspective of a property with pictures and/or video before ever touring a property. 
Anyone who has done one of these searches through sites like or local MLS feed sites know that this can be a daunting task as well because of the … (1 comments)

ginn: Are ISP's Stopping You From Servicing Your Customers? - 02/13/08 02:28 AM
What used to be "nice" services in our industry such as automated emailing of listings, has quickly become standard practice.  Consumers have voiced their wanting of this type of convenient and easy notification service when shopping for a property.  As most know, you can't send this type of information driectly from your own computer and most of us don't have our own personal servers (well, maybe some of those gamers out there that are Realtors by day and Halo'ers by night).  But are your customers getting their requests?  Not always.
Here's the issue.  Since these automated listings are being sent from the MLS company's servers (most … (1 comments)

ginn: Great Deal On A Tablet PC - 02/13/08 02:19 AM
If you've ever looked into buying a Tablet PC, you've probably noticed the prices are high and very difficult to find under the $2000.00 range.  I've been keeping my eye on them and constantly checking, and found the best deal I've seen yet . . . The Gateway C-141X.  The specs are great with a Pentium Duo processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 160GB hard drive for $999 plus a $70 off coupon (kind of a wacky thing, but it's there!) bringing the price to $929.  This is a full-size laptop with the tablet feature with a decent weight of 6.2lbs.  … (6 comments)

ginn: Finally! A Real Estate Book That is Fun and Informative! - 02/10/08 01:43 PM
 Click here for more information on this book.
I recently picked up a copy of "House Lust" (as seen above) by Daniel McGinn, and am mezmorized at how much we forget and far housing has come over the years.  This book is a cultural study into what drives the obssessions with Real Estate (i.e. checking listings even when you aren't considering buying, visiting the neighbors open houses, home shows, etc.).  It's not a book filled with stats and economical analysis.  You'll often find yourself laughing while reading because you do some of those same things.
The book also does a great job at … (6 comments)

When purchasing a new house, utility connection and/or transfers can be a job in and of itself.  It may even be a chore just to find out what utility companies are in the area.  There are a few online sources you can use to make you utility part of your move a lot easier.  These online services not only give you the utility company name, many of them even allow you to compare services and provide the contact information directly to those companies.  Some of the online services include: simply do a Google search for "Online Utility Connection"When it comes to … (2 comments)

ginn: The Wireless House - 01/05/08 12:57 PM
Many homeowners are finding themselves with nultiple computers and devices that take advantage of wireless technology.  As broadband internet service has found it's way into many households (53% accodring to the latest study), the versatility of not being ties to one location in the house has become more attractive.  More and more devices are taking advantage of wireless capabilities such laptops, handhelds, entertainment systems, etc.  But there are a lot more benefits to having a wireless router in the house than most think, and there are security measures that need to be taken into account. 
First the benefits:
Networking amongst multiple computers.  … (3 comments)

ginn: Help Getting Your Family Organized - 12/20/07 12:19 AM
  Every household and family has the challenges of keeping lives organized.  There is your personal schedule and then throw in all the other individual schedules (which for some reason kids normally think we should just know their plans even when they hadn't told us in advance).  Then there is communication.  The most common . . . the refrigerator-note!  So computers are supposed to help with this right?  Yes, but the problem usually is that everything is still staying on an individual level.  Well here is a simple and very inexpensive way (about $10/year) to bring everyone together almost anytime, anywhere, and whatever distance (internet connection … (3 comments)
