weaver llc realtors: Good Bye 2009 HELLO 2010 - 12/31/09 06:45 AM
My last blog comment of the year, WOW did 09 go fast! 
2010 is on the horizon and I wish everyone at ActiveRain a blessed New Year.  From Storm Lake Iowa, may your marketing return 100 fold, may all your transactions go to closing and may your families enjoy health and peace in the coming year.
When you struggle remember His words, "Fear not, For I am with you". Some of Jesus's most precious words, words that will always be true and never change.
God Bless All of You!

weaver llc realtors: Interested in Investing in Real Estate but Think You Can't Afford It? Check Out Lease Purchase - 12/23/09 03:56 AM
Want to invest in real estate, but strapped for cash? Read this article by James Kimmons He is a master of explaining the process and exit strategy. This is a very viable option especially today with so many properties in trouble. As a real estate investor I have personally used this option and liked the results. It is not for the faint of heart and it does require a knowledgable Realtor or Attorney.  Read what James has to say and by the way James is one of my favorite bloggers, I find his information highly valuable and usable as a Realtor and an investor.

weaver llc realtors: New Brokerage Blog - 11/23/09 - afternoon- Closing Question - 11/23/09 09:22 AM
Closing complete, I went to the closing (my Buyers), we usually hold closings in the bank or an attorney's office and here only the Realtor who has the listing attends. I don't get that? I didn't stop representing my clients when the appraisal was complete, I don't see my duties finished until we are closed, moved in, and I have answered questions for, Oh say 5 years.
I am doing things differently. I remember how I felt buying properties, the most anxious time for me was the closing, it was uncharted waters, I wasn't sure what to expect. It was very comforting to have the … (0 comments)
