Lane's Blog - Looking out from the garage

By
Real Estate Agent - Century 21 Results Realty
Luckily I have wi-fi, and can get online from the garage. If given a choice, that is where I am. Between MLS searches, arranging marketing, and pre-viewing homes, I will try to get in a little welder time, or at least clean some of the tools from the last wrenching session.

The series isn't called Busch Grand National anymore.  It hasn't been for a few years...  But the name has stuck to the controversy like sticky tires on a track...  Buschwacking... What it boils down to is that many of the NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) regulars are also NASCAR Sprint Cup (NSCS) ...

Today was a NASCAR kind of day.  My Friend Pat Johnson, of Rugged Ridge, had a spare ticket (provided by one of his customers, Jack Lancaster, owner of Tellico 4x4) for the race at Talladega Super Speedway.  We did a fairly fast road trip/race day...  On the way about 7:00 this morning and back h...

  Image by Chad Horwedel via Flickr I am NOT a Corvette guy… that said, I love the 63-67 Vettes.  I love the looks of both the convertible and the coupe… and the performance is pretty reasonable for the era.  But of course, car guys want more performance.  And as technology advances, more power g...

I was pondering this, while my buyer's inspector was prodding around a property.  Moments before, I had talked with the sellers briefly as they packed up their child in order to disappear for a while. The sellers were very nice people, and I'm sure we would have had fun hanging out and talking ab...

I still haven't kicked this idea.  But that doesn't mean it is a certainty, yet.  There are a lot of details to be worked out, such as venue, if there will be a cost and the exact date.  Of course, there also needs to be a team to make it happen.  But before we put together a team and start scout...

The First Time Home Buyer & Move-Up Buyer Tax Credits are slated to end unless a property is under contract two weeks from tomorrow.  I don’t see another extension this time.  Even the NAR isn’t pushing for it this time. (Active Military have an extra year to get the credit…) Image by Steve Kay v...

Image by  lane.bailey via Flickr A couple of years ago I wrote a post about my wish list for garages.  This stuff isn’t rocket science, but it also seems to escape most builders…  There are a few out there that hit a few of these things, but it is a rarity to see a garage in a newer home that ha...

The Atlanta market is the home to REtechSouth, the premiere real estate technology conference in the Southeast.  It draws some of the best experts in Technology and Social Networking for real estate in the country.  I'm not going to even try to name all of the incredible speakers that come to RET...

I wrote a post a couple of years ago this week about my son and his ice skating lessons.  He was having issues bending his knees... which had been brought about partially by the type of skates he started with.  When he changed from rental figure skates to hockey skates, he was keeping the old (ba...

Partially inspired by a comment from my friend Jason Crouch on another post, I thought I would talk about a little of my "car upbringing".  Jason commented: "Lane - I've never been a car guy, mainly because I never had anyone to teach me about cars when I was growing up. Wanna be my dad?" My dad ...
