Selling a Crooked House on a Crooked Street

The title sounds nice, but the real point is in selling something different. Sales always comes down to price, scarcity of the product and demand for the product. Selling cookie cutter homes is difficult. A crooked or unique location, is far easier to sell, if that quality is still desirable.

SPAM Real Estate Mailings….Don’t do it!

Ticks and Spam…not good!

I’ve been writing about real estate, social media and my hometown, for more than 10 years. In that time, I’ve learned a little about networking and made my share of mistakes. Occasionally, I see someone absolutely determined to repeat mistakes. No names are being used, but I hope to point […]

Building homes in 2017 is generally profitable, but I can see issues with a slowdown. Back in 2007, new construction permits ended in a way I can only describe as abrupt. No, I’m not forecasting a second real estate crash, but there are common sense rules for most builders. If a production builder, how many […]

Measure a Town by the Streets

Tire-sized cavity under the surface…

I want to compliment the Maintenance Department for the City of Fernandina Beach. I spend a lot of time driving around town and usually call if I see something like the pothole below. At an intersection, on a Friday at 3:30PM, this looked like something in need of repair […]

Whether using a local provider, keeping the relationship with an agent on a professional level or being willing to pay for essential items, real estate sales should be a good experience. I have a timeline and generally […]
