Second Chance Saturday: Week 135

By
Education & Training with Although I'm retired, I love sharing my knowledge and learning from other real estate industry professionals.


"Sometimes you deserve a second chance, not because you weren't fabulous the first time but because the timing and circumstances weren't quite right. You just got overlooked."
-Carol Williams   


Does getting Featured here in The Rain sometimes feel like a roll of the dice? Not anymore. I'm always open to member suggestions on posts that should be Featured but somehow got missed. 

Giving deserving posts more exposure is what Second Chance Saturday is all about.  As you read blog posts during the week, be sure to tag me in the comment section of any post you wish to nominate as Feature-worthy.  Then watch for it in the next edition of Second Chance Saturday.

What Happens When My Appraisal Comes In Low (or High)  
By: Rob Spinosa 
"Houston, we have a problem.  If your loan approval has rested on the assumption that you have an LTV of 80% of less, we can see that this is no longer the case.  This buyer might pursue these options to remedy the matter:"   (Rob outlines 5 possible remedies)

National Ask A Stupid Question Day 
By: Nina Hollander 
Nina's post is a fun read and I included it because I want you to each submit a stupid question to Nina for inclusion in next years post. You will do a post on this special day next year won't you, Nina?    

The Last 90 Days Can Make Or Break Your Year 
By: Denise Lones 
"Every year around this time I hear from agents that are examining their current year's production and are worrying about finishing the year strong. After nine months of hard work it is normal for agents to get tired, lose some of their selling steam, and be looking forward to the holidays." 

How To Answer The Tough Questions 
By: John Meussner 
"Perhaps the most popular term in the real estate community last year was "Shift".  In recent weeks, it's been "Recession".  In both cases, the real theme underlying the terms is 'Change'."

What Difficult Questions?  
By: Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 
This post is just an example of why there are always people looking to buy and/or sell.

Why Is Demographic Information So Important In Real Estate Business 
By: Morgan Taylor 
"If you are a real estate agent or a broker, you must understand the needs of different kinds of information while buying or selling property."  


Double Feature:
The Problem Is... You See It As A Problem 
By: Candice A. Donofrio  
"We humans are little walking, talking computers, constantly in problem-solving mode." 

Outside Feature:
Realtor Looking For People To Do Their Job At A Discount
Shared by: Candice A. Donofrio via Facebook group ActiveRainPeeps
"I am looking for all types of people to do all sorts of jobs for me, as long as I do not have to pay what you are actually worth."


This will be the last Second Chance Saturday until October 26th. I will be out in the middle of the Pacific Ocean next week cruising my way to the Hawaiian Islands. I will be back on October 22nd but Please keep those Second Chance Saturday nominations coming for inclusion when I return.

Yes, it should be a blast. I'll be taking lots of pictures, I'm sure!  My friends promised to help me with any lifting.  My back is feeling pretty good... just not strong.   Have a great weekend!

I feel your pain, Carol! I flew out to Denver to visit Ray every 10 days (for 3 days) while he was there and could barely breath, muchless keep up! I don't have any idea how I kept up with those who participated in the AR challenges during those 9 weeks but, boy, I'm glad to be catching up a bit.

Welcome back again!

Honestly, Debe Maxwell, CRS I was totally wondering (at the time) how you were doing that.  You went from Super Woman to Superlative Woman in my mind.
