Wow, I’m way late publishing today’s bullets!
Today is back-to-school day, so we were up early getting the kiddos out the door then my wife and I took a few moments to enjoy the silence. Heavenly silence after two weeks of Christmas break with three teenagers! Those of you without children-don’t underestimate the importance of this!
Yesterday was a busy day here on AlbuquerqueRealEstateBuzz.com as I continued my quest to publish 100 blog posts in 31 days, and today promises to be the same! But first, here’s another “can you guess where this was taken” photo. This surprisingly green photo may not look very spectacular to anyone living in Iowa, but around here all this green is shocking!
Like I said, yesterday was a busy day, but in case you missed it here is a recap:
- What is the Down Payment on That House was an email response that grew into a blog post yesterday morning. When someone asks that question I’m alway like geez, where to start? So I copied and paste my email response into WordPress, expanded it, put a link to apply for a mortgage and voila! A pretty good blog post ideal for people just getting started in the home buying process. Now to promote it on social media to make sure they see it.
- HUD 184 Indian Home loan program was a post I wrote on another site over 5 years ago that used to make my phone ring. I’m taking that old site down, so I copied and pasted the old post here, updated and revised what I had written, added information to it and published it. Then I went to the original post and added a link to the new and improved post. When I do this I always make sure I change enough of the post so Google won’t think it’s duplicate content. If you have any Native American friends who would like to get into home ownership or refinance, tell them about this program and tell then about me! Please and thankyou!
- Should I Buy a House in a HOA? It’s funny, although I’ve been blogging since 2008, but I still don’t always know what readers/listeners are going to like. I posted this video on YouTube awhile back and forgot about it, but it’s gotten a good amount of YT traffic with no promotion. So I decided to publish it here and I’m going to start promoting it. Anytime you blog, on video or otherwise, success is all about the promotion.
- Richland Hills Real Estate Report. This is a neighborhood that’s always been one of my favorites because I love brick homes and I like Sivage Thomas as a builder. This is the first in a series of hyper-local market reports I’ll be posting this month. Expect to see three or four of these posted today.
There was a big announcement day at eXp Realty. Brad Ansersohn, who was community manager at ActiveRain and Zillow Academy Director, has joined eXp Realty as Director of Education and Industry Outreach. We are extremely excited about this! Every time I turn around there’s a big announcement at eXp! Here’s a link to the press release: http://money.cnn.com/news/newsfeeds/articles/marketwire/1167272.htm.
Oops, I almost forgot, the image above is of Los Poblanos Fields Open Space off of Montano Blvd just east of the bridge over the Rio Grande.
And the total for those of you who are counting – 4 days down, 20 posts and pages published! Woo hoo me! Have an awesome day everyone!
