and where is the rest of the story ?

By
Real Estate Agent with Northwood Realty Services

We have heard it..".like fingers scratching on a black board  "..that annoying little thing that pops up and you cringe ....or at least want to shout.......Who cares?

There are times when my fellow friends and friends of friends,  on  (our ever so present ) Facebook News feed comment ....like so...

Listed 2 houses today..or showed 4 houses today...or had 3 listing 6 closes.........again...... who careblack boards?

hey....I am all for listings on FB..yes.... let me see what's happening in your world of RE but could there be something there that might interest the reader?

Really unless you want to extend  your thoughts in the comment or blog about an experience that might be of interest in dealing with those closings or showings ......why do it? ....... It is FB not twitter?

Maybe it is just a black board morning.  or a scratch your head  " What " morning. Maybe I should turn it into a morning laugh morning.I scanned my news feed...for post submitted ..this mornings top 4 different gems ( four different friends )

  • headache                                                                                             
  • tired
  • busy day
  • good morning

OK OK OK...I want to say what else?

Now that I have vented...let me tell you how I love inter-acting with my friends who have taken time to post interesting, fun, personal stories, links, photos, shares,.videos .....all the good stuff. but unless you tell me what caused your headache, why you are tired, & what's happening this morning or what dramatic happened at the showings of your house tour...why do it?  Face Book can be a powerful tool...why waste it?

Isn't it  like calling a friend saying " headache" then hanging up?  Where is the rest of the conversation?  I know I have missed the whole point....Face book is a guessing game  and the  game plan is to come up with 52 clever comments to squeeze out of you what was meant by your one word-er........well think I'll switch back to FB ....to get just a little more irritated....I'll be back AR...it is always nice to come home where we can call it as we see  it....get the whole message out ..take the time to blog about it............and as Paul Harvey would say...For the rest of the story.......for those of you who wonder ...who is that Paul Harvey...well...he is the wonder that ownes the phrase..

.For the rest of the Story...and he never left it open-ended..............................

June, you are so right about the real estate thing on FB, I try very hard to balance what I post there and usually it just for fun. My blog does feed to FB but that's about it for the most part. Have a great weekend!
