Our local REColorado MLS has given us another benefit of a free app to provide floor plans for our listings.   It just came out, and was excited to use it and see HOW to use it.    I did a floor plan with my house, and took 5 minutes, was very easy.   It not only does the floor plan, but actually gives you the measurements of each room if you want them.    It took a day for the program to provide them, but the photos usually take that long also.I have purchase floor plans through my professional photographer, and cannot remember how much they were, but it is now a savings, as long as this app remains free.

I have been hearing about A.I. Music and wanted to give it a try. I just wrote about Have you ever used soundcloud? (activerain.com)In that post I talked about text to voice and making promotional ads to post to soundcloud and then onto other socials. This new one I tried is for songs.  I made this over the weekend. I posted it to Youtube as well.  The topic I chose with the prompting was related to Destin Beach Florida. You can mix and re prompt also change text beyond the created one, make an intro, make an outro and add extension in the middle as well. You can also A.I. generate the art for the album or track cover, make playlist. Taylor Swift recently had a song Florida on her new album where she mentions Destin Florida. I am sure that wont hurt rental bookings or sales for the area...

You might have heard about spotify if you have watched any video/podcast on youtube or just watched Youtube with ads. I haven't opted for premium yet on Youtube, I get local commercials mixed in and get real estate ads served along with tech commercials.You can tell youtube to not show you a certain kind of ad if they keep running the same one over and over. This weekend I made up 10 tracks with a voice AI prompting system that creates voice to whatever text you input. I tried various accents.I found after making them using them wouldn't be as quick as I thought it would be with integration uploading to social media so thats where soundcloud came in. Stream Help Me Buy My New Home music | Listen to songs, albums, playlists for free on SoundCloudYou can listen to the tracks I made here f...

I have written a couple times about the potential ban of TikTok. It has finally been signed by the President on Wednesday.If your interested to see my previous posts. Tiktok is banned in the first full state (activerain.com)I am not on TikTok and it should be banned (activerain.com)  China so far has responded that they have made a push to ban Facebook messenger from being allowed in the Apple Store. In July of last year China banned exports of chemicals needed for A.I. chips from coming to the U.S. Gallium and germanium exportsThey followed that up in December by limiting the exports of high-grade graphite. If your wondering why we banned A.I. chips from going to China this is likely the reason for the response in addition to the A.I. race that may have military impacts on weapons and ...

The last post I wrote was AI banned on Activerain ? I dont like to be someone that just presents problems without a possible solution. That in mind here are my thoughts on how to address A.I. being incorporated into ActiveRain Community Guidelines.1. Members of ActiveRain may use A.I. art if they are the creators of the art (you prompted the A.I. model for the creation) If  you remixed someone's created work through the model you will need to have had their permission for the use of their A.I. created work regardless of if at this time A.I. can be copyrighted and comply with already established community guidelines on acceptable materials and copyright protected materials apply to A.I. if uploading a copyrighted picture in a model and only putting a slight filter on it that's not a new ...

  It's always a good business decision to have a data retention policy and practice in place. Website companies suffer outages and attacks daily. Every CRM / IDX system should allow you to do the following steps:  Open your Leads database Select All Leads Find the Export Button and then save that file locally These are basic steps.

I wrote a lengthy post recently about the Ban on Tik Tok, I wanted to provide sourced material with links for those interested to further study the topic. Recently in the past year with my research of AI and taking certifications via IBM and others I started looking into neural networks combined with the human brain via chips Neuralink and others with what's called neuromorphic computing which if you go back to that post you will see the theme with the AI generated art that I created and used on the post.  I covered a wide range of the harms Tiktok is doing to children (not that its good for adults either) there was a ActiveRain member that couldn't follow along with the post. There is a phrase TLDR that I first seen in 2021 Discord when reviewing NFT projects that I might of been inter...

We will be doing a live Zoom event where we will be happy to take your real estate economics questions: John Schuler, Ph.D. will be there as will I, and show you our client engagement tool that informs you when your clients and contacts "prep to sell," the Kukun Agent-Client Portal. Ever notice how every other product comes with an owners manual but that consumers are left with nothing when they buy a home. Kukun's Dashboard is that owner's manual. And the Kukun Portal is your way of staying in front of those clients with your branding by offering each of your past and prospective clients a dashboard. When they log in, they see your info, get a communication channel straight to you, and get a wide array of home information: Current value, forecasted value, maintenance tips, a cost estim...
