This has high potential if you need to concoct a presentation for a prospective home seller within minutes, especially if you have ready market data and content available, like from your realty firm, MLS, or local board of REALTORS.

As you can see, I like keeping up with the latest and greatest to help your business flourish.

Happy selling.
