It's all over the news in Hawaii.  The Big Island is shifting, expanding in one area and contracting somewhere else, just like a person's body when they breathe.  Scientists think we're due for an eruption. Kilauea's current cycle started in 1983.  We've been able to periodically checkout real hot lava for decades now.  Sometimes it goes underground for awhile, now it looks like there's going to be some fireworks for the fourth of July! What does this mean for homeown...

Just checking in here at REW.  I have been working on getting a new blog up and it is going pretty good so far.  You can never get enough exposure.. right?  My idea for this one is to focus on neighborhoods and counties or other particular areas of interest.  I have only had the site up for about a week but already getting traffic and I can tell that this has some potential.  It is a little rough on the edges still though. Any critique is greatly appreciated.  T...

edkirkland posted this 881 Views

I have noticed when I'm working with buyers looking at land or ranches many times the subject of conservation easements comes up. Often they haven't a clue what a conservation is, what they are used for or what the benefits are for granting one. I have written a short primer below to help bring things into focus.

Spoken Gently posted this 2,148 Views

"It's probably the best time to be looking for work in perhaps 30 years," said Dean Schau. He said the Mid-Columbia had 900 more jobs in May than at the same time a year ago. That's an increase of about 1 percent, or a growth to about 87,300 jobs last month compared with 86,400 jobs in 2006. Schau said that's despite the loss of about 700 jobs at Hanford during the past ...

Consumers have more power than ever before.  Why?  Information, of course.  But sometime there is so much information that people become paralyzed with choices.  I call it the "Ice Cream Store Syndrome". 64 flavors and 5 dollars, what do I pick?  How about a vanilla cone, please. The design goal of was to simplify the Prescott Real Estate decision process for everybody.  Thanks to the programming ability of my host, Real Estate Webma...
