Two days of my Crazy Albuquerque real estate blog-a-thon have passed, and I’m just getting warmed up! After a long day yesterday, I got a great night of sleep, and soon I’ll be ready to get started with today’s posts.
But first, here’s a nice photo I took this summer in the North Valley. Can you name the place? Scroll to the bottom to see the answer.
In case you didn’t have a chance to check in yesterday, here’s what you missed:
- With low temperatures below 20 degrees freezing pipes are a real possibility here in Albuquerque, especially in the east mountains, so I published a post called Protect Your Pipes from Freezing.
- I wrote a post for home buyers encouraging them to use Google Maps to look up their favorite homes and look for less than desirable location factors such as backing up to busy roads or being next to the fire department.
- I published a previously unpublished video that I had rejected from last summer titled “Will I Get a Better Deal on a House if I Pay Cash?” The video was about two minutes long and only about 20 seconds of it were dedicated to answering the question it posed. The rest was about offering list price or better on foreclosures that were under priced and why you should keep your mouth shut after you make an offer on a house, lol. My rambling and previously self-rejected video was praised by real estate video aficionado John Wake in Phoenix AZ and posted in his Best of Real Estate Video Google+ community. Go Figure! What I thought was a train wreck was actually a good story!!!
- Lastly, I published a market report looking at foreclosure and short sales in Rio Rancho. I looked at sales in each month during 2014, then to put it in larger perspective I published a chart showing a five-year history of both. Short sales and Foreclosures that is.
After two days of Crazy Albuquerque Real Estate blogging the post total stands at 10. At this pace I’ll finish the month with 155 new posts!!! lol.
Curious what will I be writing today? So am I. I have absolutely no idea!
Topics floating around in my head include how A Great House Starts with a Great Lot (here’s the post I published under a slightly different title), plus I’ve got plenty of pictures of cool places in Albuquerque’s North Valley just waiting to be posted, like the one featured near the top of this post. That’s a photo of Casa Rondena Winery on Chavez Rd.
Please give a like or a tweet it you appreciate the enthusiasm I’m approaching my Crazy Albuquerque Real Estate blog-a-Thon goal of 100 posts in 31 days with! If you think I’m crazy leave that in the comments.
