Things have been put on hold the last couple of days as we handled a little bit of housekeeping here. To wit:
1) I’ve moved the last of my websites off GoDaddy’s hosting and onto Hostgator. This should improve the load speed to some degree, but also will cause hiccups while I repopulate some of what had been on the two sites, VentanaLakesRealEstate.com and PhoenixRetirementRealEstate.com. The latter had automated fees with the latest listings in more than a dozen retirement communities and I need to recreate that information.
2) Yesterday, I very much belatedly took the plunge and signed up for Docusign. Docusign allows for real estate documents to be signed via an electronic signature and should simplify life greatly for my clients and myself. The only thing keeping this change from being perfect is that some lenders on bank owned homes will not accept electronic signatures, preferring instead to kill trees by requiring so-called “wet” signatures.
3) Tobey and I helped a seller close escrow on their Sun City Grand vacation getaway, which took a whopping nine days for us to sell. That, incidentally, is damn good in this market in general and especially in an active adult community during the summer. My buyers’ agent and I also are helping another buyer through their inspection period and counting down the days with the above mentioned seller before they move into their new spec home in Arizona Traditions.
4) The doctors have decreed I can’t drive for another two weeks or so, so much of the rest of the day is spent bouncing off the walls and sitting with the beagles hoping someone will take me for a bye bye.
That’s all from here. I owe you market stats and will get them posted once I finish working out the bugs on the two websites.
