I Unshackled Myself From Social Media and It Felt Good!
The freedom of not having to be active on social media is intoxicating. I took a couple of weeks off, playing golf, meeting friends, going to concerts and doing all the other good stuff I like. That was nice.

Am I advocating cutting the umbilical? The answer is absolutely not! But, I do recommend a more balanced approach.

Are you in agreement with me? I would appreciate your thoughts and suggestions.

Sooo...What Do You Think?
Real Estate Markets Are Changing and so Should You
The prediction is that shopping centers and office buildings are starting to take a back seat, while industrial and residential real estate will be front and center. Get ready to take advantage of these trends and move your business ahead of its competitors.

I'd love to hear your opinion on these predictions. Please don't be afraid to disagree. Do you have any of your own predictions to add here?

Are We Starting to Talk about Over-valued Markets?
Of the seven over-valued markets, four are in Texas. Austin, Houston, Dallas and San Antonio, where an oil and gas boom pushed home prices well above their sustainable levels. The other three markets are: Miami, Florida, Washington, D.C. and Charleston, S.C.

How's your market performing?

The Real Estate Community of Google+ Under New Ownership
It is with some reluctance that I wish to announce my resignation as the owner of the Real Estate Community. I am doing this, for no other reason than to provide more time for other business activities. Starting tomorrow, Saturday May 16th, ownership of the Community will be transferred to my good and capable friend +Luke Skar of +Inlanta Mortgage - Madison. I feel confident that under Luke's leadership and direction, the Community will continue to prosper as it has over the past few years.

In the interest of full transparency, there are several issues I'd like to address:

1. This is not a sale. I am transferring ownership, for no financial or other considerations whatsoever.
2. I intend to continue my full and active presence on social media. You are not likely to notice any change.
3. Passing the baton to +Luke Skar is an easy decision. Luke is a friend and an active member of the Google+ real estate community at large. He has the necessary knowledge and experience to forge ahead with the Community. I have confidence that he will be diligent in upholding the high principals under which the Community has flourished.

I want to thank +Janis Borgueta +Connor T. MacIVOR +Melissa Marro and +Deborah Lamb for all their contributions in helping make the REC the great Community that it is. With the largest membership of only North American real estate professionals and the highest number of posts per member, the REC is easily the premier real estate destination on Google+.

I look forward to seeing you all on Google+ and the other social media networks.

Cheers;

Homebuyer's Final Walk-Through Checklist
A walk-through before closing is not a home inspection. It is just a way of ensuring that you are getting what you contracted to buy.

What other items can you add to this checklist?

Where are we heading with Google+ for real estate?  Your opinion is important.
Is Google+ For Real Estate Petering Out?
Lately, I'm starting to see some alarming trends with Google+ that make me question where everything is heading. Some of these trends are:

1. Fewer postings.
2. Postings, unabashedly related to self-promotion. Many using the platform as a billboard.
3. Less meaningful interaction between members. I thought interaction was the whole purpose behind social media!
4. Most interaction is taking more of an automated approach. Indiscriminate +1s or reshares without introductions. I wonder how much credit Google gives such activity!
5. The interactive community is shrinking as some seem to get disillusioned and fewer new participants join in.

Now, I'm not advocating a walk away from it all. Not at all. I'm just alerting everyone that if we don't change our attitudes, the slide will hurt us all.

What do you all think? Are you also seeing the same trends? Are you experiencing the same on other social media networks?
