condo: Feds Cuts The Rates - Does This Mean Mortgage Rates Will Be Lower? - 03/28/08 03:00 PM
"There seems to be a lot of confusion for the general public of what it means when they hear that the Federal Reserve has just cut interest rates.  This confusion is also not helped by all the mortgage companies that are advertising to call them because the Feds have just cut the rate.
The only mortgage rates that may get some help from the recent cuts are ARM rates.  These rates are more closely connected to the short-term rates than are the fixed rates.  Short term rates are what the Federal Reserve is cutting when you hear of a rate cut.

condo: Agent Open Houses - Beneficial or a Waste of Time? - 03/18/08 02:11 PM
I held an Agent Open House today on my listing on 6409 Lavernell Ct.  I sat there for three hours (11 -2), and did not have one single agent show up.  True, weather was pretty lousy - not cold, but rainy - we're actually under flood warnings in the St Louis area and south tonight, but I thought I would have better luck than that.  I advertised in the MLS, KWLS (Keller Williams Listing Service) and sent over 3400 email flyers to surrounding agents.  I use The Listing Widget to create and email flyers to surrounding agents.  I think it's a … (6 comments)

Happy St Pat's Day!  It was kind of a dreary-looking one, but at least the rain held off until tonight.  Most of the rain is expected from tonight on, and from the sounds of it, it will be measured in inches - so a soggy next few days.
That's not good news for my Agent Open House I have scheduled for my new listing at 6409 Lavernell Ct.  It's planned for tomorrow between 11 -2.  I hope at least one agent shows up.  Usually, I can count on a few agents from my office to stop by.  The office is having a … (0 comments)

A huge celebration in St. Louis is the 25th annual Ancient Order of Hibernians St. Patrick's Day Parade, tomorrow (Monday, March 17). The parade, an annual St. Louis tradition, passes through one of St. Louis city's oldest Irish neighborhoods beginning at 12:30 p.m. south of the Tamm Avenue overpass at Oakland Boulevard. The route travels south on Tamm Avenue, past historic St. James the Greater Catholic Church, and ends at Manchester Road.  This is a great parade, and parking is a premium - so get there early or wear your walking shoes.
It has been announced that this year no outside alcohol … (1 comments)

condo: Is paying extra for Realtor.com enhanced listings worth it? - 03/12/08 03:33 PM
I have a seller who is wanting to see more pictures and text on his Realtor.com listing.  I already have uploaded the virtual tour (www.realestateshows.com) to the site, but he feels that's not enough.  I've contacted Realtor.com, and I fall into the 11-25 listing category (I know, I historically haven't been a large listing agent, working more with buyers), it will cost $71 per month. 
That doesn't sound too bad, but I swore I would never give Realtor.com another cent of my money.  Several years back, I had a website and domain name through them.  I cancelled the website and they … (14 comments)

What is it that you want to do and what will you have to master in order to accomplish what you want to do.
There are three things we have to do to be successful in Real Estate:
