How to Get Started with Pinterest 

The Basics

 Pinterest is a relatively new social network that will not only generate substantial traffic for your personal real estate Website, but is also another powerful tool for Home Builders because it is a visual platform. Unlike Facebook or Twitter, Pinterest is a virtual pinboard where you post pictures and these images, not comments, are the main focus of the community’s millions of members. What could be better for a real estate agent than having various online pinboards where she or he can “pin” their best and most interesting listings categorized by area, price or amenities? 

Pinterest has already become a popular place for homebuyers, sellers and real estate agents to share images of their properties. “Home” is the No. 1 category of pins on the site, accounting for 17.2% of the sites 25 billion pins, according to a study by business-intelligence firm R.J. Metrics


Almost 21 million households already live with multiple adult generations in homes not designed for multi-generational living.

5 Tips for Housing Multi-generational Families

by Chris Porter

Almost 21 million households already live with multiple adult generations in homes not designed for multi-generational living. While we expect the numbers to steadily increase—especially with 44% of new home shoppers wanting to accommodate their aging parents someday—the big opportunity is to build homes for the millions of people already living in remodeled garages or storing their toothbrush in the main floor bathroom used by house guests. Most of these people would much prefer a house designed with their living situation in mind, and a large subset of them are homeowners or renters who can afford to purchase a new home.

FHBA is constantly seeking to partner with companies that provide the best available services for our members.

We are proud to announce our new partnership with SBA Loan Group, LLC, to create the exclusive FHBA member benefit – SmartBiz Loan Program. SBA Loan Group, LLC, specializes in helping companies apply for and close Small Business Administration (SBA) backed loans.

Through the SmartBiz Loan Program, low-cost loans are designed to allow access to inexpensive working capital enabling you to hire staff, purchase inventory, market your firm, accomplish acquisitions and other business uses.

A quick 5-10 minute phone call with SBA Loan Group can qualify you and your firm. I strongly encourage you to see how these loans can help your practice.

Since the SBA backs these loans, the benefits to your company are invaluable. For instance,

Yearly interest rates are between 5% to 6.25%;

Your firm can borrow from $100,000 to $5,000,000 for working capital;

Working capital loans are 10-year terms and can never be canceled by the bank as long as loan payments are current;

There are very few restrictions on how you use the loan; and

Your firm can borrow up to $14,000,000 to purchase real estate for your corporate use.

Call (850) 601-4464 to see if this financing opportunity is an option for your practice
