Thanks for the post.  I am going to check out propsmart.

Alot of good information and links. Do you do more real estate or mortagage business. Just wondering.

Posted by Debra Cernick (DeShazer Ryan Realty) over 9 years ago

Mortgages right now.  My real estate client list has grown shorter over the years as many have retired and sold off their properties and I have not replaced them with new clients.  I find that the mortgage business gives me the work hours that real estate has not in the past, even though the real estate income was much greater than the mortgage income.


I am ready to retire from real estate, although if we come out of this slump with a bang I might tough it out a couple more years.  There are great benefits to me having access to both sides of the data and wearing both hats.

Robert - Thanks for the post. I haven't seen some of these websites. I'll have to check them out.

Posted by Robert Schwabe, Orange Park Real Estate (EXP Realty) over 9 years ago

Great info.  Nice to see the information on the website summed up.

Posted by Jim Allhiser, Salem, Oregon Home Inspector (Perfection Inspection, Inc.) over 9 years ago

I know it wasn't presented in as fancy a method as the more skilled bloggers here, but it is a good list of sites that each is useful in its own way.   There are so many real estate sites out there it is very hard to keep them all straight and organized, so this list does a decent job of that.


Thanks for the comments.
