Hey, everybody. It’s Bob McCranie with Texas Pride Realty, and if you know Dallas, you know traffic. So let’s talk about traffic in your city. What are people moving to your area need to know about traffic? What do they need to know about the roads? What do they need to know about the tollways? If you’re moving to Dallas-Fort Worth area, you need to know that we don’t have public transportation that’s worth anything. So you are going to be in a car and everybody here drives which kind of sucks because I wish we were more of a walking community. But in your area, if you’re moving to like the East Coast and you’re in Washington, D.C. or New York, you may be a walking community and traffic may not be something that you deal with on that level. But if you’re going further than the subway, you may need to take a car. So let’s talk about traffic in our area, which highways are available, which roads are tollways, and what it’s like to be you and drive. Maybe you get a GoPro, put it in your car. Post all this to social media, talk about traffic in your area. Take care. Bye-bye.

Hey, everyone. It’s Bob McCranie with Texas Pride Realty. So we’re going to hit on this one again, flooring choices.
So go to the home store of your choice and go look at the flooring section. Look at the different styles of carpet, look at the different styles of tile, Pergo, there’s all sorts of new vinyl product that looks like wood which I don’t think looks good in the house, but I think it looks good in an industrial setting or a commercial setting. Go find the flooring center of your choice, talk about the different products they have for sale there and the price points. Maybe you interview one of the local people to talk about installation and how that would work, but flooring is a big improvement that you can make in your home. If you go to sell a home that has crappy carpet or bad flooring, you’re not going to be able to sell it. So let’s give them choices and let’s have some video and some pictures so that as you’re doing a listing presentation, you can give them some ideas.
Bob McCranie, Texas Pride Realty. There’ll be another Realty Idea of the Day posted tomorrow.
Hey, everyone, I just want to wish you a Happy Yom Kippur, and if this is not a holiday you know about, let’s go find out about it because it’s today.
So, we wanna recognize people of all faiths and cultures in our community, and we want to be open to everyone. So on your social media, I’m gonna urge you to celebrate not just the holidays you celebrate but celebrate the holidays you’ve never even heard of or maybe the holidays that you’ve heard of and you don’t know that much about. Be open to everyone and be a resource to your community.
So, Happy Yom Kippur to my Jewish friends, and there’ll be another realty idea of the day posted tomorrow. Bye-bye.
Hey, everyone. It’s Bob McCranie with Texas Pride Realty, and I don’t know if you can see the joke on my sign, but today’s realtor idea is people who are downsizing.So, we want to talk to people who have too much house. Maybe their kids just went off to college. Maybe there’s been a death in the family, a divorce, something. They have too much house, and they need a smaller home. So, we can find these people through a variety of ways. One would be by finding out who, you know, on our social media, just had a kid go off to college. Watch for those pictures. Maybe you can see on social media something about their change in family.But we want to find people who are downsizing. They will have a house to sell and a house to buy. So, we might even ask people in our sphere, “Hey. Who do you know that had somebody go off to college?” And then meet those people. “Who do you know that, maybe, has gone through a change of life?” And then go meet those people. Use your social media to find people and ask your sphere to help identify them. “Hey. Put me in contact with these folks. I’d love to help them.”Anyway. There’ll be another post tomorrow. Bye-bye.
New Construction Neighborhoods
Hey, everyone. I know it seems a little early, but it’s not. It’s Christmas decor time. So if you decorate for the holidays like I do, I put up five Christmas trees. It’s a crime. I’m sorry. I do. Five Christmas trees. And my decorations go up the day after Thanksgiving, some of them go up early.
Now is the time to go hit the home and garden stores and figure out what holiday decor you want before everybody else that goes and buys it. Get out there now and find it and have it and you’ll have the best yard, it’ll be amazing. What is that, Christmas vacation? Yeah, you want to have that amazing yard. You also want to start talking about where people decorate a lot so that people…that would be another realty idea later, but look surprised when you see it. So go out to Home Depot, go to Lowe’s, go on Amazon, find the decor you want and put it out there. Tell everybody, “Hey everybody. I’m at these stores. Here’s what they have now. Go get it.” I know Halloween isn’t here yet. Go get it now.
Talk to you tomorrow. Bye.
Hey everyone, it’s Bob McCranie with Texas Pride Realty, and your realty idea of the day is homecoming season. Now, I won’t tell you how long it’s been since I was in high school, but here in Texas when it’s homecoming season, all the girls wear these huge mums and you would think they’d be this size. No, they’re like the size of the front of a Buick. So mums are an important culture item down here. What’s an important culture item for homecoming where you’re at? You obviously have the homecoming game, the homecoming dance. What is it about high school and homecoming that you could talk about?
You also might put out a little schedule about where all the homecomings are for each high school, so people know which weekend, which high school is going to have their big parade and their big event. So you can also talk about teen drinking. You can also talk about being a responsible community member, and doing things for the high school. So, anyway, find a way to talk about high schools, education in your area, homecoming and celebrating what these kids are going through. So, anyway, Bob McCranie, Texas Pride Realty, Class of ’85. Take care. Bye-bye.
Home & Garden Shows
Hey, everyone, it’s Bob McCranie with Texas Pride Realty. And today’s realty idea is gonna be very somber, 9/11. It’s interesting to me there are some people who were not old enough to remember 9/11 now. And for those of us who lived through it, it’s marked in our brains. So, maybe we talk today very quietly about the memorial. Maybe we talk today about what it meant to us and then we stay pretty much quiet the rest of the day and just listen. And that may be what we put on our social media is just a question. What does 9/11 mean to you? And see what the response is and then don’t really judge any responses, just say, “Thank you for the response,” build that connection. But today would be a day that I’m quiet and I will listen to what other people post on my thread and then tomorrow I will be much more active. So, take care. Have a great day. Keep safe.
