Two years ago I bet I did 150 or more BPOs in that year. At an average of $60 and 2 hours to go see and send in the paperwork I found it ok if I had nothing else to do. 2009 was a slow year so I did it. It was good practice for doing comps and price values, but with the few comps then it was extra hard. I am no longer doing them so I guess that answers your question.... more

If you are the Seller, average closing costs will be 1% plus commissions or legal expenses. If you are the buyer, average closing costs start around $1300 on a $200,000 purchase + pre-paids (tax, HOA escrows). Closing costs on the buyer side can go as high as 2.5% of the purchase price. There are no commission expenses (99% of the time) on the buyer side.... more
I would first ask who is your target client? Is it families, singles, empty nesters, etc? Does your service have a niche - vacations by bike, vacations to South American? Are you relying on foot traffic or leads from the internet? Can you share office space with another business? Are you the only one working there or will you have others? Most people I know book everything online but there is always a subset that will want more services. Once you define your business plan, I think that will help dictate what kind of space you need, what part of town and how much you should spend per month. Generally the areas that are hot - Cherry Creek, Uptown, Downtown, Golden Triangle, Highlands, etc are not cheap on the price per square foot. Good luck!

I wouldn't look more than 60 days in advance. Most landlord require a 30 day notice so that is when they start posting. I would suggest setting up a househunting trip about 30 days in advance if possible - most properties are listed on Craigslist. Because of internet scams, I suggest you either see the property yourself or have a friend look at it before signing any paperwork. Good luck!

Without reviewing your home, it's marketing and your market it could be many things. Start by discussing this with your agent. Review other homes that are in your market segment that have recently gone under contract and ask yourself, why them and not me? If nothing has, it could be your market.
I did a blog series called 4 Keys to Selling Quickly and for Top Dollar reviews my basic approach when starting from scratch or taking over a listing. Is it the Best Looking, Best Marketed, Easiest to See and Priced Appropriately? If not, fix the missing issue and wait for the result.
I've attached the first in the series below for you to consider.... more

There is no 'standard'. Commissions are all negotiable, so it really depends on what you and your agent work out. It can vary widely. I personally will offer a flat fee, or other options, that fit a particular situation. I hope that helps!

This is directly from my underwriting guidelines:
PROPERTY SETTLEMENT "BUY-OUT."
When a borrower's interest in a property is "bought-out" by another co-owner of the property (as often happens in a divorce settlement), but the lender does not release the borrower from liability under the mortgage, the borrower has a contingent liability. We will not require that this contingent liability be considered as part of the borrower's recurring monthly debt obligations, as long as documentation can be obtained to confirm the transfer of title to the property.

If we have a terrible winter, buyers will be out looking in February. If we have a mild winter (as we have had in Fall). They will start looking for a new place in March.... more
