Carnival of Real Estate #49

There were about 40 entries for this week’s Carnival of Real Estate.  That may be a normal amount for all I know but there was a lot of good writing to sort through.  I feel a little inadequate after reading some of these great articles.

I sorted them into four categories:  Real Estate Agents, Mortgages, Technology and Other.

Real Estate Agent Category… I had to give Broker Bryant first place.  He had my whole family in stitches.
