We in Mississippi, like many other parts of the country are experiencing a drought. I learned about one of the side effects that I want to pass on to you.

Anybody who has even considered buying a new home needs to act now!. With 30 year fixed rates hovering in the mid 3's and 15 year rates even lower, this is prime buying opportunity. At the risk of sounding like a used car salesman, these rates will not last and we will not see these low rates aga...
I recently hired a new agent, so, I was in the process of training him to do things the way I feel they should be done. One of the first things that I told him is that nobody wants to be "sold" anything. This got me to thinking about what a valuable lesson this is. As Realtors, it is our job to s...
