Oh….I’m so glad you asked. It’s a pretty simple concept so let’s see if I can explain it clearly. A great deal of our business in now being conducted online. Potential buyers are looking at photos, tours and videos of properties online. Not too many years ago that time would have been spent in the car with a real estate agent. Consumers are also looking online to help determine which agent or office they want to work with when they decide it’s time to sell. A company’s online presence is a tremendously big deal considering a few years ago having a website was optional. Now it is much more than that. Through this contest we are encouraging our blog readers to comment on the posts. We are hoping that commenting on posts that resonate with you will become a habit long after the contest is over. We want an ongoing dialogue with a group of people who are interested in the same things we are. We don’t intend to limit this group to those who are thinking of buying or selling real estate. We are seeking to build an online community. We are hoping to get to know you and allow you to get to know us. Just like we would if we were spending the day touring listings…… like back in the good ol’ 1990′s. (Yikes) That’s all there is to it. We just want to get to know each other with no strings attached. We invite you to be apart of our online community.
The winning name will be drawn on Johnson Home and Land’s 9th anniversary. APRIL 1st 2010. That doesn’t give you much time so comment on any post and you will be entered for a chance to win $150.00 to here or here or here or if you prefer will will give you this.
My kids and friends built her last weekend near the worlds greatest sledding hill. The “Bowl” is located near Burgess Junction, Wyoming. One of our favorite cures for cabin fever is to head for the beautiful Big Horn Mountains. We enjoyed staying at the Elk View Inn and we soaked in the hot tub and splash in the pool. It is a great facility and you could win a $150.00 gift certificate to this wonderful mountain retreat if you enter our Cabin Fever Contest!

The Worker, Homeownership, and Business Assistance Act of 2009 has extended the tax credit of up to $8,000 for qualified first-time home buyers purchasing a principal residence. The tax credit now applies to sales occurring on or after January 1, 2009 and on or before April 30, 2010. However, in cases where a binding sales contract is signed by April 30, 2010, a home purchase completed by June 30, 2010 will qualify.
We have had several buyers and sellers take advantage of this great opportunity. It’s nice seeing this tax credit be a benefit to so many.
I have to admit that I get cabin fever more than anyone I know because I am not into any outdoor winter activities. That makes for a very long winter.
One of my favorite things to do to help the long winter days pass is basically dream of summer! That means dreaming of my garden. Since Wyoming’s growing season is fairly short you have to be careful what you plant in your garden. I have scaled down the size of our garden to just the favorites. Tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, corn, and the regulars of radish, carrot, & lettuce. We always try to experiment with a vegetable that we have never grown before. This year it is going to be Jerusalem Root. It’s supposed to taste like artichokes, yummy! I will let you know how it goes?
What do you plant in your garden?
