Kathy Burgreen answered:
As a former realtor, no need to look for a broker now unless you ONLY want to work with a specific broker. The truth is most brokers will take any new licensed agent to work for them. You will need to interview at several of them and choose the one you feel most comfortable with.
BEWARE:
This is not like a real job interview, so no need to get nervous, anxious, etc.
Always remember, as a licensed agent, you are an independent contractor - NOT AN EMPLOYEE!! This means you are considered self employed and running your own business. This explains why when you "interview" at different brokerages, it is not the same as interviewing for a job at a company. You are NOT getting "hired."
Unfortunately in real estate - brokers know the golden rule: Out of all new licensed agents, about 80% will either quit, be forced to leave or run out of money within their first year or two. Therefore, brokerages look at new license agents as recruiting "bodies" to their brokerage - not recruiting an employee. The person you interview with is thinking "let's see how long this new agent lasts."

I'll post more separately.

Hi we are military due to come to the area next June. We will be there for at least 3 years. Are owners willing to rent their "for sale" properties instead of buying?

Hi,

My best recommendation for this is to use either Google Chrome or Firefox as these two web browsers work best on Trulia. Once on either web browser, please ensure you have the most updated web browser. Please also clear the cache and cookies of your device. If the issue persists after these attempts, please take a screenshot of the issue and send it to me by replying to this email.

Steve Rogers answered:
Most people have the common decency to not park directly in front of a house. Most renters of homes, do not realize that they rent the inside of the home and the outside is not theirs to direct orders. They are tax payers, however, they are not property tax payers. The homeowners are the ones who pay for the up keep of the city, and the renters are only paying money to rent a space. Their pay-check taxes do not pay for the right to dictate who parks in front of your home. Any home owner would respect a neighbors space and privacy. After shelling out property tax payments every year to live on a well kept property, "that is expected from the city to be kept well"; The last thing a homeowner wants is a free-loader parking in front of their house. In your case, is it legal for them to park there? Yes, it is. Should they have the common decency to not park there? Yes! they should. ... more

Hello Denicesh, it is not a bad score as you have loan program choices. You may consider FHA 3.5% down from a minimum 580 fico score and 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score.

Your scores can be raised at no cost within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary . You do have to be very careful what you pay off as some will lower your scores.

Do you have down payment and closing costs or do you need down payment and closing cost assistance programs? You may consider down payment and closing cost assistance programs from a minimum 640 fico score.

Check out the web reference link below, they are now licensed in CA, AZ, NV, OR, WA, IL, CO, GA, MD, MI, TX, VA and DC ONLY ...
