My honest opinion on things that I find interesting about the real estate industry. I'm here to help you save money and avoid making mistakes.



It's that time of year down here in Atlanta where everything gets covered with a layer of green pine pollen.  It's really incredible.  I couldn't believe it the first year that I moved down here.  There's a greenish yellow haze on the horizon and everything gets covered with a layer of green dust...
It is very interesting to look at a 10 year chart of housing prices in the 20 metro areas that the Case-Shiller  Index tracks.  If I didn't know any better, I'd say that many markets that have had huge run up in prices are just barely starting to come down.  It doesn't look at all like a crash so...
Google just did another Google Dance this month.  In the SEO world, one thing is certain: Nothing is certain and things keep on changing.  After every dance I try to  see if I can I can spot any new patterns to try to deduce what might have changed to the ranking criteria.  Google uses a big secr...
I was meme'd a few months ago and didn't participate. I was kind of new here and didn't feel comfortable sharing yet.  I guess it was my natural shy character holding me back again.  Jeff Belonger was kind enough to meme me again.  So here I go with 5 things about me that you wouldn't really know...

Sometimes I take my preferred loan officer for granted.  He makes it look so easy.  Once in a while he does something incredible that makes me realize how lucky I am to know this guy.Last year I was working with a first time buyer who had found me over the Internet. He was preapproved with a lend...
I am throwing my hat into the ring for the project blogger competition.  Hopefully there is still a slot available for an apprentice.  If not, I will continue on as a lone wolf learning the craft of blogging all by myself.I love to write and I think that I come up with some interesting posts ever...
I just passed my state's real estate broker's test!!!  I must say that I really enjoyed the new class that they started and the new test that they are now giving.The test consisted of 12 computer simulated case studies of real broker situations.  A scenario was described  with limited information...
03/13/2007 makes it easy to run TV ads on some major stations for a lot less than you would imagine.  Nice looking ads can be produced for as little as $499. I haven't tried it out yet and am looking for someone who might be able to share their experience with it. I've played around with thei...
