There was a question on +ActiveRain about using Google AdWords. Basically, do you use them, are they effective. I don't - but I'm going through the Certification process.  Here's the best answer I saw #googleadwords   #RealEstate

This could be good news for folks who are still negotiating on a #mortgage - we are getting more inquiries from folks who went through the process, and are now on the other side, and want to buy again.
Without an updated law, underwater borrowers face hefty IRS payments after getting assistance from lenders.

Refinance rates popped in January /  and then Underwriting, Appraisals (the BACK END of mortgage Origination's) got behind.  

If we have ANOTHER dip in rates, in concert with Spring Buying - expect to be writing 45 day Contracts. #MortgageRates

Anyone else having problems with JETPACK with the most recent update?  I updated today, and I can not get to (literally) my comments left on the site.  It's a first time home buyer site, and I get lots of comments... I am using Lifestyle.  Any ideas?  Thanks!   #Jetpack

I do not recommend this Salon. We had a miserable experience with disastrous color treatment that even the owner said was, "too intense." After going back a second time, they suggested maybe adding "streaks" to fix it. Ended up paying another Aveda Salon for Color Correction. I would not go to this Salon for ANY color treatment.

Many mortgage companies are not offering USDA Home Loans. We still have USDA Rural Development loans available. 100% no money down loans at a fixed rate with no PMI. We also do FHA and VA mortgage loans. We offer refinances, streamline FHA and VA loans. First Time Home Buyer programs, and credit repair counseling. We help many people who have high to mid 500 credit scores raise those credit scores so that they can purchase a home. This normally takes about 60 to 90 days, and all fees for credit analysis, credit reports and rapid rescores are credited back to you at closing. If you have a bankruptcy or foreclosure in your past call us. We can help you take the steps toward purchasing another home!

It's so great to work with Web Design (and "execution") folks who understand Real Estate. Too often, I see agents and Brokerages working with a WebTeam that understand good web design, but they don't understand how that translates to Real Estate. These guys get it.
