One way I use graphs in my business is to show my sellers how I track their home's online activity and keep a running total of how many people have viewed it. Visual Tour.com offers a ...

January 2009 is now officially over. By about mid February we should have the sales figures for January. The reason for the delay is to allow everyone to get their closings turned in and closed out in our MLS. But for now the Knox County Registrar of Deeds publishes a list of real estate transfer...

When choosing your next place to call home, most people will narrow down their search by the number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, and size of home.  Once they start to look more they often become fixated on features like new countertops, updated light fixtures, and type of flooring.  Don't ge...

After about a year of searching, I finally found my camera and I love it!  I have been searching for what felt like forever for a compact camera with a built in wide angle lens that was reasonably priced. I had heard many people speak fondly of the Kodak with wide angle, but when I researched it ...

While reading a reading a recent issue of Greg Swann's BloodHound Blog I noticed an article about custom yard sign, each designed especially for a specific property.

2008 was quite a year for knoxtours.net.  Our virtual tour sales went down a bit.  I'm sure the credit crunch, the plunge of the Stock Market, and the collapse in housing values all contributed, but there's also the Knoxville real estate market where virtual home tours isn't yet the widely chosen...
