If you don't have the info, why post an answer? He is doing exactly what you wrote by asking his question HERE where LOCAL Agents can respond. .. and not to get a no answer answer from some Agent in New York.
I am happy to see that agents from different geographic areas are engaged in helpful conversation on various levels throughout Trulia Voices. Some areas of discussion, like this one, apply to the general real estate community. We caution agents to be discretionary about addressing topics that are very "area" specfic. State laws vary greatly from one state to the next, and what may be the "rule of law" in one area may not apply in another.
Trulia Voices often have expertise in specific niches and specialties and we are grateful for their contributions across the country. Some of our Trulia Voices are just plain generous and helpful with their advice across state lines.
The Internet makes the world smaller ... let's enjoy the coziness and let the public reap the benefit of the wisdom of the masses. ;-)
