Random Thoughts for the Week (Facebook Fan Page, Posterous, Stock Market)

Every week or so we post some random thoughts that relate to the real estate market, the economy or just general updates. 

1.  Facebook Fan Page for The Somers Team !

Thanks to the help from our virtual assistant (who rocks !!),  The Somers Team Facebook Fan Page is now live !! If you Random Thoughts for the Week !have not become a fan, please do so !  I really like the look and flow of this page as well as all the content we  have it on already.  Our goal will be to build our page through new and fresh content, a combination of photos, blog posts, listings, updates and the like.  For example, we have our Posterous blog linked up to the Facebook Fan page.  In addition, our other 2 facebook accounts will not be flooded with so much business content.  Also, if you have not connected with us yet on Facebook please do so:   Stephanie Somers on Facebook    Christopher Somers on Facebook

2. Posterous Blog

Posterous is just amazing !  It is so easy and simple.  How cool is it just by sending an email you complete a blog ?  With Posterous, the title of the email is your blog title and the narrative of the email is the blog post.  And of course the photo attachments are added to the blog content.  We use Posterous as our photo blog and created a new domain that attaches to our website.  Check it out:  http://photos.thesomersteam.com/  .  Now I am no SEO expert, but I believe that every day we add a new Posterous blog, our website is constantly refreshed with content.  That is good, isn't it ?

3.  Stock Market

This past week was brutal for the financial markets due to tremendous uncertainty that relates to the Obama Administration pressuring banks and threatening additional regulation, fear of slowdown in the Chinese economy as well as worries for some European countries not to mention the concerns regarding jobs in our own country.  Still, with all the good news regarding earnings for this past quarter and strong outlooks by many companies, I believe that the fundamentals will take center stage again which should fuel a bit of a bounce back in the weeks ahead.  Bottom line:  Buy the dips !
