My favorite Blog Posts for last week- August 12th to 18th

Real Estate Agent with RE-MAX Gateway- Residential Real Estate Sales

This was another Good week for great posts.

I always learn a lot from other Active Rainers. From TECHO tips to fun tidbits. These posts have stood out from the crowd this week. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did.


craigCraig- Check out his blogs, they are very helpful. "I've packed my bags and I'm heading out now... BUT don't worry I'm only moving "up the block" and I'll see you again on every single future post! 




TammieTammie, gives us a terrific template for Market reports that work and get phone calls. "Simply put, I produce market reports because they get a response. If you are producing market reports and your phone isn't ringing, you need to change what you're doing. If your market reports get the attention of consumers, then keep doing what you're doing".



HeidiHeidi, gives us a good list housing features for "Baby Boomers". " The largest American generation is either retired or quickly approaching retirement age. Baby Boomers, the generation born between 1946 and 1964 and who total more than 76 million, may be getting older, but are definitely not ready to head to a elder care facility."



JonathanJonathan- Just for fun, what a great basement. "This awesome basement would be a fantastic way to keep the kids busy when it's too cold or rainy to play outside! Tons to do and a great way for them to use their imagination!




BrigitaBrigita, give us the scoop on Horse Poop. " Today's Horsey Fun Friday Facts is the scoop on horse poop.





LiLi, Once again shows us the beautiful Gulf Islands, BC. "Salt Spring Island is fortunate to have easy access to other significant areas...three different ferries transport us to quick day-trips to major centres."




JoniJoni, lists all or most of the reasons for Sellers NOT to show their own home.. "The seller has no idea if the person they are showing is a thief, a tire kicker, or a buyer. For Safety reasons alone, a seller should not show their own property."




gregGreg, outlines the new rules for FHA Loans. BIG NEWS! "If you’re a home buyer, whether it’s your first home or fifth, and a significant derogatory credit event has kept you out of the housing market. Then you got some good news from FHA."




See you next week.
