Inspiration . . .

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid”. ― Albert Einstein


Did you know that . . .

Sea water, loaded with mineral salts, weights about a pound and a half more per cubic foot than fresh water at the same temperature?

The Titanic, when built, cost $7.5 million dollars. The recent movie cost $200 million dollars to produce.

The curvature of the earth is close to eight inches every mile, or 66 feet every hundred miles?

Irving Berlin never learned to read or write music? He hummed his songs and a secretary would take them down in musical notation.

At the first professional baseball game, the umpire was fined for swearing? He was fined 6 cents.

The first Xerox copy machines tended to overheat and burst into flames so often that the copies came with a fire extinguisher!

In real estate a house sitting on the market for a long time can be the ‘kiss of death’. Many sellers, and real estate agents, believe that you can take it off the market and put it back on and it will look like a new listing and drive traffic; however, a good buyer’s agent will also look at the history of the property and see that it has been on and off the market possibly raising red flags.

When listing a property the best action you can take is to list it close to the selling price thereby generating traffic from serious buyers.

If you are thinking of buying or selling, talk to a REALTOR who can give you the information you need to make an informed decision.
