This week has been all about chasing people.  Chasing lenders, chasing appraisers, chasing attorneys.Our market is as busy as it's been for quite a while.  Well-priced properties are flying off the shelf, and that's causing a little traffic jam down the road.Getting appraisals done on properties ...

Naked pics... used in the name of click-bait, just to get you inside to read the balance of the post.Effective?  Sometimes. Apparently, at least according to our friend Bill Spear, more effective with males than female.  (the lookers, I mean... not the nekkid)  Do you feel tricked, betrayed?Does ...

This note to Zillow's shareholders in their fourth quarter report.  Just to pull out what I consider the important point, so that you don't miss it, they say "We are in the midst of a multi-year journey to expand Zillow beyond the place people turn to 'search and find' real estate, to the brand p...

It recently came to my attention ... a local agent was on his cell phone with his buyer... giving him the one-day-code for the Electronic Lockbox on a listing.  That's right.  The agent wasn't present... the buyer (and his family) was in front of the property, and the agent read him the one-day-c...

I don't know how I'm going to tie in that headline, yet.  I was watching Good Morning America and they had Samin Nostra on (star of Salt, Fat, Acid & Heat)... and I bastardized the headline.  Now I need to back it up with content. Usually I work the other way around: I write the post, and then I ...

I just learned about this, and in my mind, it seems to be out and out theft... definitely unprofessional.  In my mind it's no different than picking up a random Hummel figure from her China cabinet, or some silverware from her kitchen drawer.A real estate company is apologizing, after a woman sai...

What is it? you ask?  A medieval torture device?  A delousing station? A post apocalyptic radiation shower?Nope, it's a nine-head standing shower in a single-family residence right here in Evanston, Illinois, my home town.Now, in fairness, it does seem as though it would require a master's degree...

I went to Costco today.  I rarely go on the weekends (it can get so crazy), and especially midday.  But I also rarely find myself with a day where I have no real estate appointments, so I thought I'd take advantage of that opening.I lucked out... 'cause I saw what I thought must be a mirage.  A l...

I was watching Good Morning America this morning, and Dr. Jennifer Ashton was talking about the upcoming flu season.  I don't remember specifically which region she was referencing... but she mentioned that this particular area normally, by today, has 1,000 cases of flu, and effective this mornin...
