realtor: Ut Oh.....Craig's List changes the game. - 11/06/13 10:46 PM
I, like most Realtors, rely on Craig's List to market my listings and to generate buyer and seller leads.   Recently, changes have been made that will change the way we use this tool to drive leads.
The first thing I noticed is that we were required to start entering a ZIP Code.  Not a big deal.  
Then, HTML photos and anchor text were not allowed.  Hummmm.....  Ok, still not drastic, but a little more of a pain.  The kicker came when ads could not have any type of clickable link in them.  STOP THE PRESSES.  Realtors freak out here.

realtor: From Baltimore to Southern York County - What do I do now? - 09/29/13 03:03 AM
Lately, I have been working with a lot of clients who are moving from Baltimore to Southern York County.  This can be a huge adjustment for some of them.  They are currently living in neighborhoods where they can walk to their favorite restaurants, dry cleaner, take out places, watering holes, etc. 
They look at Southern York County (Shrewsbury, Stewartstown, Dallastown, Red Lion, New Freedom, Glen Rock) because they can get a nice size home, bigger back yards, etc., for their families.  But, they are still city folk at heart.  Southern York County offers a lot of local conveniences, but a slower, … (0 comments)

realtor: Mortgage rates - Is now a good time to buy? - 09/27/13 06:10 AM
Mortgage rate are a big player in determining how much home you can purchase.  I am asked by buyers often what I believe will happen with rates.  While I am not an expert, I do know a few people who are. 
Last week, at Keller Williams Mega Camp, Gary Keller and Jay Papasan talked about interest rates.  
Mortgage rates remain historically low, and only recently jumped to above 4 percent. In January, the 30-year mortgage went up by 1 percent. “That’s a 10 percent increase in the monthly cost of the home,” said Papasan. Or a 10 percent drop in … (0 comments)
