I've Always Said I Learn Something New at ActiveRain Every Day and It's Time I Showed You.  April 29-- May 5, 2012

I learn something new every day at ActiveRain!  With this series I try to highlight one post per day that gave me that “lightbulb” moment.  It could be something techie, about Real Estate, about a place or person!

Mike CooperApril  29: Mike Cooper-  Is Another Wave of REO’s Coming? Maybe
I keep hearing about more foreclosures coming and I also hear of how things are picking up.  Read what Mike has to say.

Richard WeisserApril  30: Richard Weisser- Before You Go On That Listing Presentation Make Certain That You Know Your Google Organic Search Results.
I’ve seen the Toggle switch and had a feeling this is what is meant.

Nancy HankinMay 1: Nancy Hankin - Planning a Summer Vacation...Beware!
In the past all we had to do was take alcohol wipes to wipe down the remote control in a hotel room. Nancy reminds us of another hidden problem.

tammie whiteMay 2: Tammie White   How to Prove Gas Fireplace Logs Are In Good Working Condition?
I never would have thought to test this.  Believe it or not we do have fireplaces in some homes here in Florida.  

tammy eminethMay 3: Tammy Emineth  Are Your Competitors Using Negative SEO Against You?  
With everything we put into our websites we need to be vigilant about Negative SEO.  Once again Tammy provides us with some clues on what to do.

Ashley ConnollyMay 4: Ashley Connolly  Mobility Awareness Month..Please Take a Moment to Read
Every once in a while you have to stop and do something for someone you don’t know.  This will cost you a minute of your time.

I love sites likes this.  I’m always amazed at how they come up with these things!

A few years ago the experts said the real estate market would be destroyed when the shadow inventory hit the market. Didn't happen.

So they postponed their prediction for a year. Didn't happen.

So they postponed their prediction for another year. Didn't happen.

I'm pretty much convinced that it is what it is. Work with it and don't worry about the future.

Jim- I kept hearing every year about the shadow market and we have had a lot of short sales and foreclosures here.  Who knows.
