Avoid These Seller Mistakes 
You want to get the best price for your home, plus sell it in the least amount of time. In a buyers’ market such as the one emerging now, homes will take longer to sell. Therefore, it’s important that you make the right moves at the very beginning of your home selling process to remain competitive. Here are some common traps that many homeowners fall into and how to avoid them.
1. Over-pricing — It’s easy to think your home is worth more than the current market may support, particularly after the long run-up in home prices. Since … (7 comments)

'It's Time to Buy Again,' says Fortune 
"After four years of plunging home prices, the most attractive asset class in America is housing," proclaims Fortune magazine, one of the world's premier business publications, in its April cover story.
The article, headlined "The Return of Real Estate," explains that several market forces have created a more promising outlook for the industry. An excerpt:
So let's state it simply and forcibly: Housing is back. Two basic factors are laying the foundation for dramatic recovery in residential real estate. The first is the historic drop in new construction. The second is … (8 comments)

 I saw this home all decorated for the Holidays and the left over snow just made a great photo. I also thought what great curb appeal this home has to offer, something about it just made it stand out and say, hey, look at me. The peacefulness of the nearby brook just set the stage.

ri: Personal Branding & Five Simple Strategies - 06/04/10 12:35 AM
Nobody likes someone who is an ego-maniac. A lot of real estate agents get a bad rap, because some agents think that to build a great personal brand, they need to talk about how great they are. This is very off-putting for many people -- especially your Gen X and Gen Y clients who are slow to trust and quick to judge anyone who calls themselves an "expert."
Personal branding -- the art of packaging and presenting yourself -- has become vital to both career and business development, especially as a real estate agent.

Conanicut Island

JAMESTOWN — Almost every neighborhood in Jamestown is a waterfront neighborhood, and even the island’s busiest spot, “the village” near the East Ferry, has a small-town, relaxed feel.
But in Conanicut Park, a neighborhood in the northeast corner of the island, the sense of quiet and tranquil is even more pronounced.
East Shore Road, the neighborhood’s main street, sometimes appears to be a deserted stretch. People out running, bicycling or walking their dogs often smile and wave at the few people who do happen to drive by.
Conanicut Park also has the advantage of the tremendous … (5 comments)

Rhode Island boasts a wide range of habitats. Its rocky shores, sandy beaches, pine woods, hardwood forests, and freshwater wetlands each produce its own palette of native flora. These provide a wealth of diversity, available to enrich the experience of anyone willing to stop and observe the natural world.
Many wildflowers are quite showy; many more are less so. However, they are none the less beautiful, expressing the intricacy and balance of Nature's art in all its variety.  I hope that the comments, links, and images will inspire a deeper love and respect for all of Nature's offspring. … (2 comments)

All About HUD Foreclosed Homes For Sale
What is a "HUD Home"? Homes acquired by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development are "HUD homes". They include single family residences, townhouses, condominiums and other types of residential properties. When a homeowner cannot meet the payments of a HUD insured mortgage, the home gets foreclosed by the mortgage lender. The mortgage lender then transfers ownership of the home to HUD and collects the amount owed to it. HUD will then offer the home for sale at market value with the intent to sell as quickly as possible. HUD … (7 comments)
