Over the country we hear about the foreclosure infrastructure and increased number of them over the past 6 months.  According to a number of sources, get ready for a massive introduction in to the 2009 year, in the spring.  According to Fannie Mae, we will be seeing numerous foreclosures in March - July which will do a number of things, good and bad.  Depending upon which side of the scale you are on.  If you are looking to buy a foreclosure, lets make sure you know what you are doing and find out everythign about the house, as nightmares can be at hand, but a great deal comes along with risk.  Risk reward and you might just jump into instant equity with a little fixing up here and there.  Make sure of these certain conditions when looking.  Roof, Windows, Heating source, all plumbing l...

Well, what the heck do they all mean? I just finished taking my GRI class, as well as a few months ago took my ABR classes.  What do they all mean to anyone?  Education is my answer to all.  A few designated letters to your business card for some as it is more like a General has stars on his jacket.  Education is key and the letter symbols are for certain types of classes a Real Estate Professional has taken. Buyers looking for an agent should look for an agent with an ABR & GRI, as this is what they really mean.  The GRI basically is an education on the blood and guts of the house.  If you have ran accross a builder, construction house builder, roof specialist, windows expert, electrical expert, plumber, concrete and brick layer, this is what the GRI training and education will give th...

Now that I have read numerous blogs and comments I've come to realize that the only way to get started is to just DO IT! So, here goes. As this is my first attempt I've decided to start very slowly! Future blogs will stick to topics such as: real estate, city and county government and life! This one could be considered filed under 'life.' Working under the adage that 'A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words' I'm going to burn up the page with images!   Wouldn't it be great if our marketing images were as easy to compose? The inspiration for my company logo! One of my many future blogs will concern parking and its issues! This image reflects Fargo when there was apparently no such a thing as a parking ticket! Okay! So I didn't burn up the page with images, but at least I got started! I've ev...

I have recently opened up to a new market up in Fargo in the Cass County, North Dakota area.  Since moving to the area, it has shown me to be one of the more private of but wonderful areas in the country.   I was skeptical on the way in but now that I'm here, i wouldn't leave for anything!

As a property manager of real estate,  I am well aware that our current economy is not optimal, but we all need to keep in mind that the economy in general fluctuates-- and especially that the American economy has an unprecedented amount of capital behind it. We have invested our lives; I don't have to tell anyone this. Economically, the U.S. continues to be a vital market particularly in terms of consumption. I have yet to come across a client who has been unhappy with his or her purchase. I have found that the media are over-reacting. My clients continue to look for new homes, and continue to be able to afford them.  In the end I still love managing properties North Dakota, specifically in the Cass County, area

Fargo Logos & Design: Advertising: the basics 1. Make sure the ad has a strong headline and call-to-action. What's the one thing you want to convey and what do you want prospects to do next? Make sure these two elements are strong and clear. 2. Stir up some emotion. The most powerful buying triggers are emotional benefits. Success and admiration can be strong motivators for business buyers. So is fear -- fear of failure, being beaten by the competition, etc. Your messaging should focus on emotional benefits and how your product delivers them. To achieve this goal, you really need to know your audience. 3. Speak to your audience. Going beyond #2, design your entire ad to grab attention and appeal to your target audience. Consider your headline, copy, photography, typeface and layout. If...
