Thelma, it's always good to see someone from the Pensacola area.  My hubby was born in Milton, and even though we now live in the cold north we miss our trips to your lovely area.

Welcome to ActiveRain!

I moved here from the cold state of michigan and I absolutely love it.  I am an outdoor person and

the weather here is just perfect for me.  I love to sit on my porch all year long for coffee in the morning. So for all of you freezing in the winter in the cold north, come on home to Pensacola.

the home of beatiful beaches and friendly people.

Hi Thelma!

Kevin Sandridge, here.  I just joined the Active Rain community myself and wanted to drop a line to share some of the good vibes and welcome wishes I have received already. It's great to see another FL-Based colleague in the network!  I'm not too far away - over here in Winter Haven, FL.

I'm very excited about this community - basically because folks seem so willing to help out, provide industry insight, and share their good news and experiences!

A couple of things: 

One:  Please consider increasing the information on your profile page.  Check out the profiles on other Realtor's sites here on Active Rain who are listed as "Featured" or "Tops" in their area (look for high point totals).  You'll find that this will seriously boost your presence on ActiveRain - via the added points. 

Two: I urge you to keep blogging on this site!  You will be AMAZED at the awesome feedback you receive very soon after they hit the network!  I use Google Reader to subscribe to blogs that provide me with ideas about what I'd like to comment on - both industry wise and just for fun!  Check it out I am more than willing to step you through the site and to help you get a few more blog posts generated if you wish - as a way of adding some value and paying forward some good networking vibes!  :)

Lastly, I'm sure you know that 33% of the FHA Loan purchased homes last year used Downpayment Assistance Programs.  Today, this number is way up  - actually over 40% in the 1st five months of 2008!  I'm actually hosting a conference call w/ the FL manager of Nehemiah on August 14th, if you'd like to learn more about DPAs and what's going on.  Drop a line to let me know and I'll be sure you get on the call.

I do quite a lot of work via social networks, email campaigns, and relationship building.  If I can ever be of any assistance, don't hesitate to ask.


Looking forward to what you'll share with us all here on Active Rain!  :)

Blessings,

Kevin Sandridge

What a wonderful response and thanks to all the agents for the good ideas about open houses.

Here is one I got from right here at home.  Have an open house/garage sale at the same time.

You get people looking at the house and the owners get rid of the things that they don't want

to take with them.  See if the neighbors are willing to make it a street/sub sale and you will

really get a lot of traffic. Good luck out there
