Do you prefer a walkable mixed-use or big lot suburban community?


The 2013 community preferences survey from the National Association of Realtors is an analysis on the types of communities people prefer to live in.  On one hand compact, walkable communities continue to have leaps in demand, but detached houses with large yards and lots of privacy are still tops.  You can read all about it in this 51 page slide show:

WalkablecommunitiesSplitpieOne of the things I was surprised to see is the breakdown between a walkable, mixed-use community and a conventional suburban one to be very balanced.

Anyway, you should check out the slideshow…good stuff.

My Very Own Portable WI-FI Hotspot!

My PalmPre Hot Spot saves the day! I went to a listing appointment in Mason, NH wanting to show my client some comparable listings she may be interested in. My client only has a dial-up connection. Being a tech goddess I took my laptop, my 19″ flat-screen monitor, and my PalmPre Plus cell phone. Mind you, deciding to bring all these things was a last minute thing, but easy enough to pack.

My mobile hotspot on the Pre is one of the BEST tools I have. I logged onto the hotspot and wa-la…WI-FI hotspot, for up to 5 computers, at my clients home. She enjoyed looking at all the listings….and on a large screen. Just imagine the possibilities with your own wi-fi hotspot and a laptop.

My initial purchase of the Palm Pre Plus was to use on my new iPad that should arrive April 3rd. Check out my blog on my decision to purchase the iPad at: AppraiserJenns Blog

I will be using these tools for both my work as a Realtor and Appraiser.

Sorry…delay in posting due to busy real estate market.

Once a week is turning into once a month…yikes!

Well I now have my real estate license.   I will be working with Brin Realty Group in Amherst, NH in addition to appraising. Previous clients of mine who do rehab projects wanted my help in listing their properties.  Another adventure for me!

The market has been nuts as most are aware (those who are not aware don’t pay attention and don’t read blogs either).  I, like most others, am waiting for the election to see how the housing market will fare.  Everything is too uncertain now.  The bailout, the economy, the election…man what an exciting year!

Post Soon,
