Are You Paying Attention to What The Listing Says?
This is in fact one of my pet peeves about home buyers!

Many buyers skim listings and don't read what they should be.

In his latest article +Conor MacEvilly talks about the phenomena of some buyers who really just don't pay attention.

BTW - If you have never checked out Conor's writing I would highly recommend you do so!

He is a talented writer who really needs to step up his game and blog more - there is your challenge for 2017 Conor:)

Take a look and see some of Conor's excellent advice on looking at online listing along with some great contributions from +Kevin Vitali, +Anita Clark, +Wendy Weir and +Debbie Drummond.

Are you thinking of buying or selling a home in Raleigh NC? If so then I would highly recommend speaking with Ryan Fitzgerald of Raleigh Realty. While Ryan is not long in the tooth when it comes to years in the business, he is one of the hardest workers I know. He really cares about doing an exceptional job for his clients. Ryan is well respected when it comes to making a marketing plan when selling a home as well as a expert resource for those who are purchasing a home. I have know Ryan for a few years and would highly recommend him to any of my clients transferring into the area.

Michael George is one of the few people I will trust when it comes to SEO. He is down to earth and knows his stuff. Unlike some SEO's, who like to give you unrealistic expectations or do crooked things in order to obtain short term rankings, Michael plays by the book. If you have a Wordpress blog and need any kind of help either with implementing or running a site, I would highly recommend him! Over the years Michael has fixed a number of Wordpress issues I have run into for a very reasonable amount of money. You can't go wrong when you hire the Guru Effect!

As a Realtor myself, I know what to look for in a top notch real estate agent. Lynn has all of those qualities including drive, honesty and knowledge. Having known Lynn for the last few years it has been great to work with her on a couple of referrals. In fact one recent referral is still in the process of working with her right now and has nothing but good things to say. If you are looking for an excellent real estate agent in the Coral Springs area make sure you give her a call.
