Posts Just For You- This Week at ActiveRain-January 16 to January 22, 2022


Every day there is something to learn here at ActiveRain.  With this series, I try to highlight posts that gave me that lightbulb moment. It could be something techie, something about Real Estate or the other professions that I never knew, about a place, or about a person. Or, it could be a post that made me sit up and take notice!


GrantJanuary 16: Grant Schneider You Can't Delegate and Disappear

We see this happen all of the time and not just in real estate.


Andrea January 17:  Andrea Bedard     How not to let stress be your home-buying guide. 

It’s so easy to get caught up in the excitement of buying a home especially when inventory is so low. Great words of wisdom from Andrea. 


EndreEndre Barath, Jr. Do you need motivation? Only on a Monday or other days as well?

Even if you are not much of a reader, these look like some good books to have on hand on those days when you need an extra nudge. 


Bob "RealMan"January 18: Bob "RealMan" Timm New Terminology for Realtors

Don't get me started!!!! Your thoughts?!


Scott January 19: Scott Seaton Good Reminder for Homeowners.

This is another reason why it is so important for buyers to hire an experienced home inspector.
