I'm frustrated by what I see. Imagine what a consumer feels if I'm frustrated.  I work in this industry, so I know what's going on and read up on everything I can.  I spend hours doing research for posts, ideas, and clients.  I actually enjoy that side of real estate and real estate blogging.  W...

Take a walk on Deed Street. I was introduced to Deed Street at Blog World 2009 thanks to Doug Lazovick, the founder and man behind the curtain.  During the conference I actually spent quite a bit of time with Doug and got to know him and chat with him about Deed Street. The idea of Deed Street is...

Ken Cook does it again. Ken Cook comes through again and answers the question of when you should get pre-approved for you loan when buying a home.  I think this post goes great with my post Realtor® Speak 101: Pre-Approval.  I think pre-approval is one of the most misunderstood and most important...

Mortgage guy Ken Cook breaks down the stages of approval for a mortgage and shows you life on his side of the fence.  Ken's no-nonsense look at the value of the various stages of the loan process is refreshing and straight on.  Then again, Ken's never been k...

San Antonio 78259 New homes being built at a sensible pace, plenty of land for expansion, and the gently rolling hills of the edge of the Hill Country define the real estate market in 78259.  I fear this area will eventually end up a bit more like Stone Oak, but for now, that is nothing more than...

San Antonio 78258 The Stone Oak area (78258) has had more trouble than most over the last year.  Overbuilding combined with the nightmare that is 281, has allowed this once heralded area of San Antonio to become a little less desirable.  Don't get me wrong, plenty of people still love the area, b...
