Idaho Real Estate: Instant Text Info

More tech savvy buyers are using their cell phones to capture real estate information from Idaho Real Estate signs.  Don Wixom, Realtor of RE/MAX Executives in Nampa, Idaho, is utilizing a service which provides free text messages to anyone who inquires from his custom made signs on his property listings.

Selling Idaho Real Estate with Text Messaging

The service works like this:  Interested buyer drives up to the property and simply reads the instructions on the sign.  They type "REALTY" in the 'to:' field and in the body of the message, they type the special code for that property, ie. "11".  The caller instantly receives a return text message with the price of the home along with the particulars, ie. # of bedrooms, baths, square footage, amenities, etc.

Don says, "This is a great tool for younger buyers or those who are tech savvy.  It also helps when my flyer box gets empty and the information isn't readily available".  This service is completely free to the caller.  Don picks up the tab and is also able to notify a prospective buyer of a price change or status change on the property.

Express Cafe in Meridian Idaho for Breakfast

The Express Cafe in Meridian, Idaho has got to have the best food, the best service and quality of life that I've seen in a long time!

Wy wife of 21 years, Barbi, and I have made it a point to go to breakfast every Saturday morning for over 6 years.  It's our time together; time to catch up from the busy week, to slow down and see each other face to face (she calls it our "face time").  We often talk about our two boys and what issues we may have with them (teenagers, ya know) as well as plans for holidays, major purchases or vacations.

The quick, friendly service has been very impressive to us over the past couple of years since we've been going there! We try to remember the servers names as best we can.  They always greet us with a smile & know us by name.  They even always bring me my large Cranberry juice without even asking, along with my green Tabasco sauce that I have requested more than once.

Are we so encumbered with the fears of what others have done that we spite ourselves and get stubborn when selling our homes?
