Take Advantage of the times!

Real Estate Agent with Van Dorm Realty Inc 91156

This is the time to buy, don't be shy. All the negative press about the rotten economy and housing slump tends to paralyze people. There are screaming deals all over the country. Do you have a little nest egg of money pegged away that wasn't hit by the stock market crash. Now is the time to aggressively purchase Real Estate across the country. The "short sales are driving down prices and the interest rates are incredibly low. Are you a risk taker, now is the time to buy a second home in Florida or Arizona or collect rentals, GO FOR IT! Your time to prosper has come!

Hey Bernie, and Welcome to the Rain!

Kevin Sandridge, here.

I joined the Active Rain community not too long ago myself and wanted to drop a line to share some of the good vibes and welcome wishes I have received already.

A Bit About Active Rain

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!

When I started out on Active Rain, I felt a little overwhelmed.  I hope the following points and suggested sites will help bring you into the mix!  Just my way of saying that I'm glad you're here.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

One:  Be sure to include a good amount of 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!  :)

Three: Be sure to add in a good number of posts about what you think and consider pertinent regarding your area of expertise!  You'll notice that many if not all of the Featured posting bloggers here on AR do this.

Lastly, 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.

Here are a few great sites to visit (some of my favorites).  If you like the information they provide, be sure to let them know I sent you!

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

Blessings,
