My Favorite Newbie First Posts! Week of May 17th 2013
I absolutely love discovering new bloggers. This week is no exception!
Eli Magids introduces us to Charlotte, North Carolina in his first post It's all in a Name. He talks about the history of Charlotte and where some of the "names" come from. I love the story of the statue near Charlotte's airport about Charlotte, King George III's wife and her love of the arts.
Elly Whyte writes of her Short sale Woes. I know many of you specialize or work with a lot of Short Sales and will totally feel her pain. I'm hoping in this case you can give her some pointers and ideas on how to make this transaction work for her Sellers.
I love to hike and Heather MacLean has written a wonderful post on Hiking Camelback Mountain in the Phoenix Arizona area. She describes the trails, their distances and the views one can expect to see. She then gives some great tips on how to best enjoy your hikes there, including information on parking and pets. She has obviously spent a good bit of time there!
Sandra and Patrick Rafferty have written a well thought out post on Getting your Home Ready for the Rainy Season. Though the tips would be excellent for any home, they are especially important in what they describe as Calgary's extreme rainy season. We as Realtors need to make sure that our potential listings are properly prepared before being active on the market.
Ramonica Caldwell reminds us that there are still options for Buyers without a lot of cash of their own. Down Payment Assistance for Houston Home Buyers explains how low to moderate income families can still achieve the American Dream of homeownership. She outlines the procedures of qualifying for these loans and what to expect.
I know it's a holiday weekend but please find time to give these new bloggers a big ActiveRain Welcome!
