They're a challenge, they're a lot of work and time, but I get them and I understand them now and ...of course there is always a level of risk that they won't close YE...

Some sellers are choosing FSBO over listing to avoid paying a commission. Problem is they often owe too much on their home and are trying to save a dollar.

It is if you're only thinking about the bottom line. Another way to look at this so called "bad...

I often get asked which social media tool one should use over another.  (For a list of common social media sites, scroll down below).   There are so many reasons why it's important to implement several social media tools in your marketing plan, but sometimes too much can be ...well, too much. I e...

I always wondered if the selling bank in a short sale would find it more apealing to have the buyer finance the purchase of the property through them.  Would there be a conflict of interest at the time of purchase? Or would it even matter at all? I was again faced with this today when giving out ...
