Lane's Blog - Looking out from the garage

By
Real Estate Agent - Century 21 Results Realty
Luckily I have wi-fi, and can get online from the garage. If given a choice, that is where I am. Between MLS searches, arranging marketing, and pre-viewing homes, I will try to get in a little welder time, or at least clean some of the tools from the last wrenching session.

There are things that I find hilarious as I wander through the listings...  I'm working on a market whiff... kind of a pre-CMA to see if the property will be priced in the ball park... and I am looking through a bunch of listings.  And I keep thinking that in some cases there are too many agents ...

And it wasn't a bad thing.   The story won't air until next month (July), but they were filming in one of my listings.  Specifically, they were showing a property that was staged with a live-in home manager.  Showhomes of Atlanta is the vendor that is doing the job correctly in this story.  Someb...

I talked with a home owner (potential seller?) not long ago about listing their home.  It was a beatiful home.  Nice neighborhood.  Good schools.  Well decorated.  I was not talking with them specifically about listing.  It wasn't a house I wanted to list...  No garage space.  But, this particula...

Auto restoration, real estate, diet... whatever. It's all about building the system, examining the system, testing the system... and doing it all over again... and again... and again. I am building a Jeepster/Commando from the ground up. Currently I am building a frame. I know that in order to ge...

10,000 listings in FMLS.  Actually 10,043 Single Family Residences listed for sale in Gwinnett County.  These include Active Listings, Pending Sale (with a Contingency) and Pending Sale (with a Kick-Out Contingency).  That is a LOT of properties.  But I would hesitate to say that all of them are ...

The blogosphere is going nuts with this...  He gets a sweetheart deal from Countrywide, disavows all knowledge, and then pushes a $300B bailout...  Not only did he get about $70k in campaign contributions from Countrywide and BoA in the last year and a half, but the loan is apparently going to sa...

Every Sunday I try to post up some unique videos.  It has become a fairly popular feature...  This Sunday was Mini-Vid Sunday.  Take a look at what people can do without using ANY gas.   I posted up an Open House Announcement - 9010Brixham Court for Monday's post.  The Open House was on Father's ...
