I was just going thru the blogs on yesterday's "ActiveRain Daily Drop" and commented on a blog titled "Pros and Cons of Buying With Listing Agent" by Marina Gavrylyuk (I hope I spelled your name correctly).  My comment got me to thinking and wondering! She was talking about the listing agent havi...

I've often wondered, "Do Banks Require Stupid Tests?"  If you pass it, you don't get hired!  I have managed to get in with a couple of financial establishments, and been offered the chance to list their REOs. Oh, for those wondering how I did it......4-5 years of entering my information into what...

I just participated in the contest Bob started asking what sellers did wrong. I wrote about not keeping the house in showing condition (Leave the house in dyingcondition....according to my grandmother).  But one of the other issues, concerned hiring the right agent I guess hiring the right agent ...

What 1 item, can sellers do to improve the chances of selling their home quickly? When I am listing a property, I ask the sellers that question, then wait for their response!  Usually, it is a blank stare, or the comment, "That's your job, to sell it!"

I am working as a buyer's agent purchasing a Fannie Mae property.  Originally, the closing date was 6 weeks out.  The closer we got to the date, everybody realized that was being more and more difficult to reach.

I'm curious as to opinions of the banks asking for personal information of the buyers who are buying an REO property.  First off, we write an offer, counter, then acceptance!  Two days later, we get a 13 page addendum, that supercedes the contract, and nothing can be changed. Then, after agreeing...

I'm sure a lot of you have had a buyer that wanted to make an offer on an obviously "overpriced" home!  Sometimes, the home is overpriced due to a "weak" agent that can't convince the owner of the true value, while other times, the owner is led astray by an agent (notice....I didn't use the term ...

I started to write this blog yesterday, but was afraid it would be deleted for profanity!  I think I got telephone ear! Let me explain.  I am working 2 short sales, both listings, with 2 different banks, both major names in the industry that everybody would know.  One, is calling me requesting mo...

Over the weekend, a buyer called me about a property she had seen driving around.  The property had a "For Sale" sign and a brochure box.  When she called, she gave me the address and the price on the flyer (Love these type of Buyers!). Well, an exhaustive search through the MLS turned up nothing...

That may seem like a stupid question!  We all carry cell phones to stay in contact with each other.....Right!!! Then, why can't I ever get an agent to answer their phone and answer the question that my buyer has asked about the property we are in at the time! I had a buyer call me on Friday about...
