  How far would you go to close a sale under 40k?  I recently closed many sales in the past few months. It happens to be in a 55+ community known as Lake Clarke Gardens, located in Lake Worth, Florida. To me it offers a lot of value, great location and is maintain very well. The prices range from $25k-50k on average along with various floor plans from 1-2 bedrooms.   We all know time is a valuable commodity that can’t be replaced, so should your customer. I had a great client that I received through Movoto, and worked this deal mainly through pictures and emails. In a way sight unseen. As you know by already looking at the price tag the commission and referral fee would net a great sum. The difference is I don’t look at this way and never have.

Serious Warning About Kids & Plastic Bottle Pranks, Please ForwardNever tried this and never heard of it, but you never know what can happen!!!!Kids are putting Drano, tin foil, and a little water in plastic drink bottles and capping it up - leaving it on lawns, in mail boxes, in gardens, on driveways etc. just waiting for you to pick it up intending to put it in the rubbish, but you'll never make it!!!  If the bottle is picked up, and the bottle is shaken even just a little - in about 30 seconds or less it builds up enough gas which then explodes with enough force to remove some your extremities. The liquid that comes out is boiling hot as well.  Don't pick up any plastic bottles that may be lying in your yards or in the gutter, etc. Pay attention to this. A plastic bottle with a cap. ...

Preview Of The State Of The Economy & Housing  For the WeekThe European Central Bank left rates unchanged, hoping to fuel more economic growth overseas. Global economic weakness has helped keep mortgage rates low. Unemployment claims were up slightly but still remain at healthy levels. Signs of a strong labor market could help the Fed decide to raise policy rates this year. The Fed votes on rate policy next week. Despite the labor market, other economic predictions suggest policy may remain unchanged until December or later.  More homeowners are renovating their homes, with renovations running 2.8% higher than 2005 levels. Renovating is more popular now due to tight inventory. Building permits were down slightly, but new housing starts were up 6.5% in September. New home construction ma...
