this is not the blogger know as Molly, but rather my old cat that shared the same name
I was passing through the featured posts tonight when I came across a post by SarahGray Lamm. If you haven't read it, I've re-blogged it here for your pleasure. It's actually a post about a blog. A blog by Molly. In it she speaks about buying a home - from a home buyer's perspective. Take a few minutes read the post about her experiences, but while you're there, comb through the rest of the blog. It's a personal blog about all sorts of things. Perhaps you'll have something new to add to your feed reader when you're done.
Shocking...or not. Personally, the #1 BEST find for me in this brave new world of social media, is a blog post about real estate written by, gulp, A MEMBER OF THE PUBLIC! A real life, flesh and blood, card-carrying member of my biggest TARGET MARKET...people who want to buy a house!
I have an RSS feed chock-a-block full of feeds from "experts", "advisors", "designers" and practitioners of every branch and offshoot of real estate, from all over the country and from every possible angle. I learn every day from them and make my own decisions about how I want to apply their thoughts and strategies to my own business. But for pure, unadulterated "THIS IS WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR" stuff, how can you possibly beat stumbling upon a post written by a homebuyer about the process they are currently engaged in! A "real person" out there who has become some lucky agents client and then blogs about it!
I don't care that she isn't MY client or that this isn't MY market (although it is my state.) I just LOVE reading about how she sees and feels the process...what makes her swoon and what creeps her out. I've never read Molly's blog before and only through the divine synergy of RSS feeds and Google Alert did I find it but here it is...my pea sized golden nugget in the murky, cold and gray running water of my virtual sluice of real estate related information...
Just a sample to pique your interest...
"5. I'm starting to believe that "For Sale By Owner" means "Realtors wouldn't even take the listing because the Owner believes that it's worth twice what the market data says." I'm amazed at what some of them think their houses are worth."
