Big thanks to Rick and WNRN radio for hosting us again on Sunday to talk about real estate … an hour is never enough.
We covered a lot, so much so that I’m going to break this post up into three posts – one this morning, one this afternoon and one on Thursday.
Listen to the show yourself – it’s an hour long, but I think we covered an awful lot of ground, ranging from whether buying is smarter than renting, what is QRM, FHA, VA, foreclosures and short sales, the benefits of quality real estate representation, the sociological benefits of a recession (specific to real estate), why “Reply-All” can be a life-saver and backyard gardens and Farm Colony.
First, two thoughts. One from Seth Godin that applies to his world – marketing (broadly) – as much as it does mine (and ours) – real estate (bolding mine) :
Who can resist listening to an hour-long conversation about the Charlottesville real estate market? (besides my wife) Once again, Matt Hodges I and will be talking with Rick Moore on Sunday’s show at 11am.
What questions do you have? What would you like for us to discuss?
“We love the community, we love the University and we just love being here.”
When I’m in the mood to listen to music, I tend to be listening to the Corner. Why?
Note: Listen to their commercial here. With the blog redesign, I’m having some issues with playing mp3 files
1 – They play good music. Consistently.
2 – Listen to Kathy’s reasons for moving to Charlottesville; her reasons echo the reasons many of my buyer clients either move here in the first place or choose to stay in Charlottesville. With all of our problems, Cville is still a great place to live.
3 – They understand what Charlottesville is about and demonstrate that they get Cville.
4 – They’re not a homogenous station.
6 – As Charlottesville increasingly becomes homogenized – tell me what is “Charlottesville” about the Hollymead Town Center, which could be Anytown USA – it’s nice to have a local radio station that both understands and values the importance of the Charlottesville culture and its uniquenesses and idiosyncrasies.
