Good monrning everybody,


   It is an absolutlely gorgeous day in N. Texas. I have a busy day today but I wanted to say hello first.  I have decided to put a segment on my website called "A Week in the Life". I am going to document my activities, both fun and stressful, a few times a day as time allows. It will consist mainly of the ramblings of a seasoned Realtor but occasionally a little nugget of wisdom may pop up. You can follow the adventures by going to www.charlesbennettsells.com.

   Well lets get started. This morning I have answered all my emails and spoke with the ones that needed me. I am about to represent a buyers interests in the purchase of a beautiful townhome. This is a Freddie Mac property. If you are unfamiliar with the acronym Freddie Mac, give me a call and I will explain. Anyway, a purchase agreement is 12 pages in length. The addendum we received from the seller is 18 pages in length. I had to devour it a couple of times and digest it over night. After careful thought I reduced the offer price by $10,000 because of the concessions we make before the negotiation even begins. I think we have made a very strong offer. I visited with my client and answered every question to her satisfaction. Most of the time this business is fun.

   I have pulled the hotsheet which is an itemized print out of what happened in our housing market yesterday. I analyzed the data and as expected, it shows the spring buying season will soon be in full bloom. Savvy buyers are flooding the market. Why not? An eight grand tax credit is hard to pass up. Young families can buy a home and Uncle Sugar will furnish it for them.

   I have made showing arrangements for some buyer clients this afternoon. I am fixin' to  head out and do a little prospecting. I know the term fixin' to shows my redneckedness and irritates one of our northern brethren. If it didn't what would be the point? I'll holler at ya'll later.
