iPad2 Promotion to Introduce New EliasonRealty.com Website
Becky Schmitz of Appleton, WI is the lucky winner of the July Eliason Realty drawing for an iPad 2. Becky is the third winner this summer for the Eliason Realty.com iPad 2 giveaways.
“When I received your call telling me that I was the winner of your monthly iPad,” Becky stated, “I was pleasantly surprised. About one minute later, I found a request in my inbox from the Wish Upon a Hero Foundation, requesting an iPad for a 15 year old with autism. It seemed fortuitous that these two events came together, and I am thrilled that you agreed with us that we would donate the iPad to this cause, and we will add our programs designed for people with autism, to fulfill the wish for this young woman. It's great to partner with you in helping her to gain independence!”
Eliason Realty is doing a drawing for a new iPad 2 every month to celebrate the release of their new web site. To register for the drawing, you simply need to go to EliasonRealty.com and sign up. There is no cost or obligation, but you will automatically be registered for the site. In addition, you will have free access to all of the real estate search tools the site offers.
Becky wrote, “Your new website is a great use of technology, making it easy for us to keep an eye on what's available and properties that we might be interested in. We have appreciated the ability to have instant access to the information we need. We use technology in our company in a similar way in our business. We produce software to help individuals with communication challenges to lead independent lives.” (the Conover Company)
Diane Misina says, “Feedback from our buyers and months of research led us to our new site creation that's a great tool for our buyers on the web, including premier mobile-friendly features.
Home Prices Hit Lows, But 'We See Signs of Hope' FHA, REAL ESTATE, REALTY, HOUSING, US HOUSING, SAVING HOUSING, US HOMES, REAL ESTATE TRENDS, FORECLOSURES, MORTGAGES, SUBPRIME, BANKS, BANKING, HOME LOANS, HOME VALUES, Posted By: Diana Olick | CNBC Real Estate Reporter | 29 May 2012 | 11:05 AM ET All three “headline composites” of the latest and widely watched S&P/Case Shiller home price indices ended the first quarter of 2012 at new postcrisis lows. But one of the authors of the indices, Robert Shiller, told CNBC Tuesday: “We have encouraging signs in the market, we are seeing some signs of hope.” His cohort, S&P’s David Blitzer, agreed. “Digging into the details, it’s a whole lot better than the headlines,” he said in the same interview. Finally, index co-author Karl Case explained: “We lag, and the indicators for the last three, four months on the quantity side have been real positive, so we look like a bottom. You have to pick to find real negatives.” So why are they optimistic? Markets like Phoenix and Las Vegas are coming back—Phoenix in home prices, and believe it or not, Vegas in construction. But just because they are coming back from extreme lows does not mean that we’re going to see huge price appreciations any time soon. This is just the second-straight month that we’ve seen monthly price appreciation (seasonally adjusted) on the indices, and it’s very slight, under one percent. “Transaction volumes for both new and existing homes have improved somewhat over the past few months, but that doesn't mean that prices will rebound on the same timeline,” notes Miller Tabak’s Peter Boockvar. “The market has reached the point that low prices themselves are finally driving some better demand again. Prices will eventually follow, but in fits and starts, and it’s still very possible that they go lower still.” One cannot discount distress in the market, especially when we look at markets like Phoenix, Las Vegas and Atlanta.
