Posted by Lynne over 2 years ago

RussellI have a new listing in the same area! Come by and take a look when you get the chance and I will email you the details. This looks like another good way to generate interest in listings and also give buyers another place to see homes in the area!

Posted by Erin over 2 years ago

Scott Thanks you, I always like holding open houses to meet prospective buyers and also the neighbors who often know of folks who want to live in the area!

Lynne Hi there, thanks for checking in and commenting on my posts! it's always good to hear from you!

Erin That sounds great, I will preview your listing when i get the info! BTW, you need to login when you comment so you get receive points for commenting! thanks again for dropping by!

Beautiful home! If the weather stays cool enough you should have nice crowd!

Posted by Jeannette Spinelli (Avenue One Properties) over 2 years ago

Jeannette Funny you should say that...Usually, if the weather is too nice people sometimes choose to do other things besides check out open houses! I do know that it is usually the most serious who look during this time of year so I am indeed hoping for a good crowd!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (AvenueOne Properties, Austin Texas Real Estate) over 2 years ago

Open 2-4 today, come on by!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (AvenueOne Properties, Austin Texas Real Estate) over 2 years ago

Russell,  I think all our 1.5 million homes are now selling for $450,000 :)  Karen

Posted by Karen Kruschka - Prince William, Fairfax ,Stafford County VA Real Estate Service (RE/MAX Olympic Realty) over 2 years ago

Karen, It's not nearly as severe here and in fact if anything it's just flat and is a far cry from the early 90's when we saw price and value drops similar to yours! Hang in there; it will pass and we will returning to stability eventually!

Hey Sweet & Cheeky - How did the Open House go??? It's an inquiring mind kinda thing!

Howdy Gail Yes I know (I am something of a smart aleck at times)...I sometimes cannot help my self and of course you are always welcome to and probably will respond in kind on any of my posts! I do think it is really cool that even though you all are competitors you get along so well, sort of like Jason and me here in Austin!

This open house went very well and I had a number of groups through! There were neighbors (I always like that) some very serious lookers and I managed to meet a nice couple that are moving from out of state and want something under 1M in the area. So I would say it went well and that we generated some good activity for the home too!

Russell - have no fear, I do relate, quite well I might add :-)  Glad the OH went so well...I just hope you have some empathy for the fact that I must sell 5-7 houses to equal 1 of your sales.  Just the same...life is good!

Gail MacMillan Titusville Fl Real Estate

I'm back...the day I posted for Jason's "Turn That Song Off" contest, I was surprised that you didn't have one of those smart-alecky comments for that one...hehehehehe

Posted by Gail MacMillan - CRS, e-PRO, GRI ~ Titusville FL Real Estate Brevard County (HomeSweetHomeFlorida.com) over 2 years ago

Hi Gail Well don't get me wrong I work in most price ranges and it takes a lot of work and expense to market these homes as it does any home! Life is certainly good now but I have to tell you that it is probably easier selling homes in Titusville's median range than here!

I did not see the song contest because I have been busy trying to price a new listing just south of this one and looking for business...Sounds fun and I will go see the results! Thanks again!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (AvenueOne Properties, Austin Texas Real Estate) over 2 years ago

Did you check and see how many times this was viewed? It's another great place to promote listings and your SERVICE! Keep up the good work (and the fun posts too)!

Posted by Mattie Lewis (AvenueOne Properties) over 2 years ago

Yes and I was amazed, it was over 500 hits and clicks (if I have that right) The previous open house post was over 1200 so I will continue to advertise here at AR!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (AvenueOne Properties, Austin Texas Real Estate) over 2 years ago

absolutely gorgeous home!  Yes, the traffic here on AR is awesome so keep em coming!

Hopefully someone will find this little hidden gem :)

Hey there Mandy, thanks for dropping by and yes it is an exceptionally nice home! I hope all is well with you!
Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (AvenueOne Properties, Austin Texas Real Estate) about 1 year ago

This is a beautiful property!  I hope you have sold it or will sell it soon - it has a decidedly Texas looking quality to it (to these Tennessee eyes anyway!)

Posted by Emily Lowe - Nashville TN Realtor (The Lipman Group Sotheby's International Realty) about 1 year ago

Emily, thanks so much for dropping by. The home is still available but shows well and I am confident that as our market picks up after the traditional holiday lull, it will sell! Great neighborhood too!
